Aftershock 4 Eruptive 2 as4 er2
⬥ Along with Precise 6 Aftershock 1 p6 as1, is a:     • ~9.6% DPM boost over no weapon perks. ⬥ This is effectively the same as having:     • Precise 6 p6 , Eruptive 2 er2 , and Aftershock 4 as4 simultaneously. ⬥ Cheaper to get than Precise 6 + Eruptive 2 p6 er2 in one gizmo.
Caroming 4 Eruptive 2 caroming4 er2

Crackling 4 (leg armour) crack4
Crackling 4 crack4 deals 200% ability damage every 60 seconds. ⬥ Can easily be combo-ed with an auxiliary perk     • Cheaper than some other combos involving perks like imp4 or biting4. ⬥ Pairing with Enhanced Devoted enhdev4 on legs can make armour switches cheaper, as legs tend to cost less than bodies.
Enhanced Devoted 4 (leg armour) enhdev4
Enhanced Devoted 4 enhdev4 has a 18% chance per hit on you of activating a 3 second version of the Devotion devo ability. ⬥ The effectiveness of this depends on the attack speed of a boss. ⬥ Assuming the correct overhead prayers, this works out to approximately:     • 18% damage reduction against targets that attack less than once every 2.4s (4t).     • 30.5% against targets that attack once every 2.4s (4t). ⬥ Takes priority over the normal Devoted dev4 perk.     • However the normal dev4 perk can activate during the time enhdev4 is active.     • This calculator can be used to see exact differences in perk ranks.
Turtling 4 turt4
Turtling 4 turt4 increases the duration and cooldown of Barricade cade by 40%. ⬥ This allows for Barricade cade to last for 13.8s (23 ticks)     • 17.4s (29 ticks) with the T2 Malletops perk malletops.

Advanced Armour Perks

Biting 4 X biting4

Relentless 5 Crackling 4 relentless5 crack4
Relentless 5 relentless5 gives a 5% chance to not consume adrenaline when using an ability that requires adrenaline. ⬥ Crackling 4 crack4 deals 200% ability damage every 60 seconds. ⬥ As biting4 is expensive, and relentless5 is a perk useful in all situations putting both on your body armour allows you to use different augmented legs with different perk setups.
Impatient 4 Devoted 4 imp4 dev4
⬥ When not using Enhanced Devoted enhdev4 , it is preferred to combo Impatient with Devoted.     • However it can be comboed with many auxiliary perks situationally. ⬥ dev4 has a 12% chance per hit on you of activating a 3 second version of the Devotion devo ability. ⬥ Damage reduction if praying correctly:     • 12% against targets that attack less than once every 2.4s (4t).     • 21.4% against targets that attack once every 2.4s (4t).
Invigorating 4 X invig4
Invigorating 4 invig4 gives 20% increased adrenaline from auto attacks. ⬥ Can easily be combo-ed with an auxillary perk. ⬥ Most impactful for Magic Magic and Necromancy necromancy setups.
Lucky 6 X lucky6
Lucky 6 lucky6 gives a 3% chance of reducing a hit to 1 damage.     • Works on all damage except hard typeless, such as Araxxor's cleave. ⬥ This can be good for some end-game ranged setups utilising the ECB ecb spec since Lucky lucky6 will work even when Soulsplit soulsplit is active, unlike Devoted dev4 / Enhanced Devoted enhdev4. ⬥ Can be paired with an auxillary perk like Absorbative absorbative4 or Hoarding, etc.
