Let us do the math on why I prefer Alkosh over Torug’s Pact. Below you can see two graphs depicting the average penetration. I compare 50% crusher uptime with infused and 75% crusher uptime with infused on an Alkosh setup to a Torug’s setup with 100% crusher uptime.
As you can see the needed Alkosh uptime to outperform Torug’s is within reachable margins. Especially if you keep in mind that with an infused weapon you will most likely hit that 75% crusher uptime, if not more. Also keep in mind that I even gave Torug’s the upper hand in these graphs by assuming a 100% crusher uptime.
If you get a reasonable amount of synergies in combat, Alkosh is the clear victor. So if you are sure that you can output an Alkosh uptime bigger than shown in the graphs, wear Alkosh. If you do not, or are not sure, wear a setup with Torug’s.
Keep in mind that Torug’s Pact is BUGGED on the PTS at the moment and has a cooldown that is lower than it should have. These calculations were done with the values Torug’s should have when it is working as intended.
