Default Mythical Will of the Blade

https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/12165

I never see this thing used.

Is it bad or is it good but simply outclassed? If so, how to buff it in a way that makes it have its own identity and feel good to equip?

Outclassed I'd say. Doesn't do anything particularly special, lacks +1 skills or higher max resist, no CC resists, so in the end rather bland.

I think thats an amulet problem in general. The +1 all skill amulet just outclass other more interesting ones so much. Perhaps we need more amulet that + specific skills or with good procs instead of jack of all trades.

Conduits particular a good roll covers basically every other amulet you need in the game, and if thats not good enough theres alot of amulets with +1 skills to the class you play. Amulet like the one listed above is just left in the dust.

+1 amulet doesn't always outclass things.

But it is hard to beat. Meanwhile this amulet just gives a skill mod to a WPS, so it's a buff to something that isn't going off constantly. I like the idea of trying to make this amulet good enough without another +1 all nightblade.

It just needs another good skillmod or two maybe to carve out a unique place for itself?

No one want use it due stupid conversion from cold to pierce on blade spirit.
Game are forces you to use the normal version, where this dumb conversion are not represented, if you make build based on cold (most powerful) blade spirit and there you want hard-capped bs to 26/16

What if it was reworked a bit to support trickster? With Brutallax?

Pierce Savagery?

I personally like the Blade Spirit mod, but i love player scaled pets in general so no wonder.

I would prefer it keeping the BS support and get the Belgo Shears mod replaced with some pierce/bleed stuff for cooldown PB along with more castery stats like %cdr instead of %as.

Something to go with the new Rancor.

I mean that amulet is so stacked for AAR it was pretty much made for it. However some of the amulet feels like a jack of all trades but then dont have any + skills for it like this one in the thread, which then proceeds to get outclassed by everyone else despite being a level 94 legendary. Another one that comes to mind is the mythical bysmiel amulet. After the double raven nerf from that amulet it gets outclassed by heart of the mountain way too much.

Also Essence of grim dawn is really really good, but Conduit of arcane whispers probably win out by being better defensive wise along with flexible rolls. I saw a few builds out there that prefer conduits instead.

Will of Blade is just absolutely useless since it buffs the very same WPS that is buffed (or sometimes double buffed) by Belgothian set. It can't compete with Mythical Night's Embrace or Peerless eye. Bonus to Blade Spirits is useless since Belgothian setups don't have points for BS anyway.

My suggestion: make it buff either AQC or WD and add +1 to NB skills. Then it might become an option for melee Pierce builds. Otherwise, this amulet is an absolutely redundant placeholder.

It really doesn't need +1 NB skills if the skill mods it does have are abnormally high. Which can also be a lot of fun.
