Is Determination really worth it ?

I'm up to Det 8 at the moment and I still seem to be stunned, mezzed, rooted an incredibly long time. I was in a fight with a 1-handed tank and he got 4 hits off on me before I was able to make any return.

Regularly against stealthers if they get the perf off on me. i can forget about even trying to make an attack. I'll be dead before the finish. And this isnt a case of being 2shotted. They are getting 5,6,7 attacks in and I'm just standing still through all of it

I think I'll be getting out of Det pretty soon and spending my points on more useful things

Det is for spells. It doesn’t affect melee stuns. You need purge.

Thanks, I didnt realise that. i guess I needed to read the small print.

Well having said that and running on my mentalist who doesnt have det then yes i can say that Det is definitely worth it!

Couple of questions on Champs:

Does acuity or Int, Pie, etc do anything for a champ? Power pool, DD Damage etc.

After a month of RvR on my champ and talking to guildie about his we have noticed the castable snare is resisted it feels like 80+% of the time is this normal or am i on glue? Would Mastery of Focus help? ( havent looked at the RAs to see if we can even spec it)

There should be a casting stat for Champion.

What spec?

Re: October 12th 2018 Champion Guide for Spec

I went with the 50 LW 50 Valor 10 blades 6ish shield rest parry. The castable snare is Lvl 42 spell I just figured that it shouldn`t get resisted as much as it seems too.

The casting stat I have seen conflicting info out there so I was hoping some knowledgable champs would chime in and let me know
