I built a pretty powerful smiter for ubers. I have 101% CB from Last Wish (61%), Venom Grip (5%) and Guillaume's Face (35%). As such, I use the Gore Rider boots exclusively for their 10% chance to Open Wounds, to stop the life regeneration of the ubers.
If I replace Gore Rider with another pair of boots, loosing Open Wounds in the process, can I simply use a low poison damage sc (say +1 poison damage per second) instead, and still stop the ubers from regenerating?
You can get 10 OW from bloodcraft belt, or 25% from draculs. 96% CB and 101% CB has very little difference mathmatically anyway. (Some sources even say CB is capped at 95, and some say it's capped at 100).
