yeap. all of my db rks are Crush strike hybrids. Just a waste not to be when i have awesome crit gears.
Essentially you can go INT120 style DB RK and be as pure a DB build as possible and still do high bash damage with seraphim. DB RK's stats are very very flexible- all you really need is 120DEX for that FCT. You can decide on your own VIT/INT based on cast time, equip, goals etc, and still have enough to do whatever add-on you want or can afford to include.
This is almost as pure a DB RK can get, except slightly lower vit (usually i see 110VIT DB RK). The 80 STR is not really wasted as PDM gives you another 12INT so that's damage and cast time too. At the same time you can use seraphim and still do very high physical dmg with just 72 str if you want to. Can you do Crush strike with this stats? Absolutely.
Lindy with 2 SHARP5 =30CRIT,
dogtag = 50 CRIT,
Critical Shadow Armor =10 CRIT
Luk Food+Poring Pretzel = almost 10 CRIT
Temporal Ring+Lucky Day = 13 CRIT
That's already 114 CRIT without a single point in LUK, and no Acute Enchant headgear. Your CS will still one-shot Valk with Surcoat if your lindy is highly upgraded (like +12) and you use seraphim for that 250ATK.
So you can see from the above example that with so many new gears, there also means a lot of different ways to build your DB RK. The thing is whether you want to get those add-on and put a little stats into them. For player like me who started with CRIT in the first place, i have everything to make a hybrid as strong as possible, so it's a no brainer choice to add on CRIT. For another player, you will have to choose for yourself man, whether it's worth it to get the extra stats/equip to get pass DB's weakness.
*Edit* Said before but i say again, the more new stuff we receive, the more sense it makes to add a hybrid actually. There's still squirrel hat that hasn't come that gives full defense pierce and crit% without needing luk, and also the MVP combo Mid HG for Orc hero card which adds a lot of ATK for having VIT (having 120VIT gives you 300ATK LOL). Tons of further updates all boost physical RK skills too, like clashing spiral becoming a really hard hitter skill. All these let you make your RK wholesome with tools to deal with all situations IF you gear for it.
