    In case you don't already know about this in the latest patch for the Gavel Update dexterity requirements were fixed due to the fact they didn't show up on items or take effect the item, meaning you could use items with dexterity requirements without having dexterity, So now that this is fixed dexterity requirements will now take an effect on your item.

    On to why this is a problem. Stalagmites (pair of legendary boots) now requires 20 strength and 20 dexterity, strength and dexterity don't stack, which means this build is really stupid and pretty worthless, making people angry because they can't use their items or that their item was lost due to this requirement. I'm sure that stalagmites aren't the only item effected by this but its the only one I currently know of (and the one most people are upset over).

    Stalagmites should have the dexterity requirement changed to something a little more logical (like defense, since it goes with strength well), or change the strength requirement to something that makes sense with dexterity. Or just simply make strength and dexterity stack and then this build wouldn't be useless.

    It should either be made so the requirements will be changed like you suggested(such as make it strenght + defense or dex + something else, but not strength + dex.)
    Or, the dexterity requirement should be removed entirely, but then also nerf the item.

    I think it's a bit too early, after elemental damage has been added, to tell if an elemental build makes sense or not. A strength + dexterity build might not seem very strong because str and dex don't stack but it could be quite strong as it's the most "raw base" damage you get through skill points.
    Earth and thunder damage items generally increase your damage through bonus melee damage and high attack speed as well.
    Stalagmites might be the powerful piece of armor that a full-damage archer build can use. (for example)
    This is just my opinion to show the other aspect of those boots.

    yeah I can see why this'd get annoying, the fix would've been better if only applied to all future items gotten

    That would make the previous items extremely overpowered in the case of some items such as Spiritshock or Cancer, as well as being flat-out impossible to perform under the current system.

    Str and Dex aren't all bad if you know how to play it right.

    In particular, they both play into Poison effects extremely well, as Strength boosts the effectiveness of poison like it does Earth and Neutral damage, while Dexterity items often have solid poison effects.

    Then explain to me how to "use strength + dex the right way".

    In my old build before I reset it I had about 50 strength and 40 dex as Archer(my bow did earth dmg so I thought strength was good). I was around lvl 55. I also had alot of posion effects. And by alot i mean alot.
    The posion effect did next to no dmg. I think that it did leass than 3% of a normal Ogre's HP. So because of that, I do not believe that posion-strength + dex build will work out terrible well... :/

    Find a weapon with naturally high attack, and then do double that, and double your spells as well. Then, if dex doesn't work, str simply comes into play, and vvvvv.

    You do realize that it is possible to get 100 dex....?

    Let's say you put 75 points into dex and 75 points into strength. You will only do a non-crit about every 4th hit or so. Then for that every 4th hit your 75 strength points comes into play, but you dont even deal as much dmg as you would with dex. Thoose 75 strength skill points would be way better used if you put them into dex to max it and then the rest into intellegence/agillity.(that as a bad example but you get my point..)

    You either go full strength or full dex. You dont put 20 points into dex/strength just to use an item. That's a waste.

    Excuse me, 75 skill points in one attribute is approximately a 50% bonus. 100 skill points in one attribute is a 65% bonus. In addition, Earth is an extremely common spell element, I've noticed...

    Although STR and DEX is not a good mix at high levels, I find it better at moderate percentages like 30%

    could be worked around such as having the item weaker until you get to the right level instead of being out of use until you get to the right level. but oh well, its already been added; my post wasn't a suggestion or a complaint or anything
