Crystals for IoD

What are your crystal choices for soloing IoD BAMs? Struggling to backcrit while avoiding red zones takes so much time (=wasted dps) even with reaper's mobility... Or am I just too unexperienced? I was wondering if it would be better to just stick with 4xpounding (compensate with keen charm instead of power one?), or even 3xpounding 1xwrathful?

Go with wrathful, enrage crystals leave pounding for when you have enough slots for it. If you also have MP issues, then glistening will help. If you're struggling with getting crit damage, then go with carving or increase your crit factor.

Don't go all pounding, you'll lose out on alot of DPS by doing this, the bonus that crit damage crystals give are too good to bypass. Depending on where you'll mainly damage the enemy, then choose either a frontal or backcrit crystal.

If you also need a boost to your damage, then use charms, crit power scrolls, Battle nostrums, and attack potions to increase your DPS. This increases my DPS by at least 30-60% for me.

I would say you're inexperienced. I'm having no problems with standard backcrit setup. Around 20 seconds per bam.

Thank you for your answers! It looks like I was just hunting the wrong BAMs... Today I tried with Nagas and it was much easier to stay behind, they are slower and less mobile than others. So I will go with backcrit setup after all, just replacing Focused with Carving or Slaying.

I use Savage, Bitter, Pounding, Slaying

Use power charm.

Check out Redstrike's guide if you haven't, and keep practicing.
