I recently reset my crit full lycan inquisitor druid to remove kabbalist1 from the build in exchange for a 2nd circle in Monk. I feel like if I take more SPR I shouldn’t have any problems with regaining SP after lycanthropy’s drain.
while we can’t cast Breaking wheel during Lycanthropy anymore, you can cast breaking wheel BEFORE lycanthropy and then transform and burst onto the wheel. I like to use One Inch Punch first, then transform and use my wolf skills to clear out rooms.
my build also has Krivis 3 now instead of Krivis 2 and Dievderbys 1. The duration increase on Lycan form attribute at rank 10 means I spend less time waiting for the cooldown, so I feel I can give up Diev for another rank in Krivis. Why would I want Krivis 3? Mostly because I’m going SPR and lv 15 Aukuras + lv 15 choirtasmata is a really powerful heal over time for a group, allowing me to be useful while my wolf form is down. Higher levels in Divine Stigma and Zalchaia also very much benefit my build.
Basically, take Kabbalist if you don’t intend to invest much SPR into your lycan build, and if you do wish to invest high SPR, take advantage of anything that scales with SPR (lots of these in Krivis). Of course I have to invest dex, str and con into my build too, so it tends to be tricky to spread the stats around.
