Just my idea.....
Loose the Chiten - go full plate and raptor +8 - full uniques and a bit of dd - hits very hard for dcz.
Take ms+8 - no one has sd in dcz.
I play a reasonable amount in the dcz - never been killed 1v1 by a sin........yet.
Strangely, no warriors bother my char much either - def is not an issue.
If in doubt - acid ftw - lots of talia in dcz.
