assuming you don't rely on stacking requirement reduction, that would be fine yes.. a little higher would be fine too.. if you want to put some in health, that would be ok too

Thank you. I am still not sure whether I should be pumping Dex to scale bleed and pierce damage on Throwing Knife, if I should be pumping Int which I am assuming will scale the elemental damage component added to Throwing Knife (for example the flat cold or lightning damage added by Storm Nimbus).

well you see... one of the strengths of this build is dealing different types of damage.. all those damage types will be boosted by %total damage (which boosts every type of damage), and then further boosted by reduced resistances (which reduces every type of resist).. dealing different types of damage means you won't have a problem dealing damage against anything.. the only problem this has is Toxeus.. but you shouldn't have a problem with Toxeus if you do the chicken way.. the chicken way i will show in one of my videos in a few days time (i have already recorded the videos, i will just compile them in the coming days)

edit: chicken way

also, you might notice I'm wearing a shield.. shield block chance is affected by dex at least according to this guide

https://www.kirmiziperfect.com/titan-quest-shield-block-formula-guide-by-xaece/

so dex is offense and defense for this build.. not that it's enough to keep you alive but at least it helps some with your squishiness.. survivability of this build really comes from life steal, CC, and killing enemies before they kill you.. and that's part of the fun of being a glass canon :)

in my experience, you will see the strength of dex mostly normal and epic.. sometime in act 3 legendary, you will start to feel squishy.. that's when you will want to spam knives.. but spamming is only good if you deal instant damage (not DoT).. that's when int becomes more important

tldr: sink your points on dex and int

Wow, thanks for the info, I did not know that. Maybe I do have to review my opinion on shields for this build...

tldr: sink your points on dex and int
If you use Eitr and/or Cold Essence/Primal Magma relics, int becomes much more relevant for your damage. However, the defensive boost you get from dex remains very compelling :)
     Which reminds me: Legendary Cold Essence & Primal Magma are, next to Eitr, another great addition from Ragnarok, at least for this build. They pair very nicely with the Stonebinders Cuffs, which are a BiS green armpiece and therefore always offer a "free" slot for those relics (that is, if you can afford to use it over a more defensive charm).

my build is like the pre-ragnarok version.. ragnarok offers more item optimization.. i can see myself leaning towards Neiths Will instead of Phorkos Trident (maybe).. especially if i also get lucky with legendary craftsmanship, getting weightless prefix.. but this character is retired now :(
