Captain's Banquet is definitely amazing, for the other bonuses too, and should be used for any tough fight, but it's expensive and limited. Drugs for regular fights. I just find that playstyle annoying (using consumables in general - I've beaten the game on PotD without using a single consumable, just because). But that's my personal problem.

 

Modwyr offhand is probably the second best option, just as a anti-confusion stat stick? Caroc armor gives up speed and damage, and priest has other things to do or will run out of casts in a long fight.

By the way at high level if you have a support chanter they have a chant that gets rid of confusion as well. Modwyr is a good stat stick anyways if its lash bonuses apply to spells but I have not tested it specifically on a spellcaster.

I always wanted to know if that chant could for example downgrade dominate to charmed, then charmed to confused, then remove confused.

This build looks really cool and way different than anything I've played; I'd like to try it out. Two questions:

 

(1) Could you run this on Serafen? You won't be an ascendant or a berserker; does that just kill the whole idea?

 

(2) If I'm using Kitchen Stove for another character, could you recommend a substitute weapon for the opener?

1) Kind of kills the idea, yes. Not completely, but partially. The basic idea is to use Frenzy/Bloodlust and later Blood Thirst to shorten (or even omit) recovery while ascended (= casting with no focus). You will still have high casting speed but you will run out of focus quickly and have to fall back to dealing weapon damage. It still kind of works, but the best thing about this build is not going to happen.

 

2) Hand mortar(s), Watershaper's Focus with Blast, the Red Hand

2) Also Amira's Wing Horrid Wilting. I think its per rest, though.
