Use the protective coating skill + blade oil for another 25%, you now have 90% protection.
Now use the griffin decoction, let the enemy hit you several times (the damage they deal is ridiculously small), after several hits you build up your resistance up to the point where you don't lose vitality at all.
tested it on lvl 87 archgriffin when I was lvl 56. works like intended. I spawned a quen shield and it stayed at 100% even though it hit me. If you have the sword that you got from the lady of the lake you deal only critical hits after the 10th strike since you don't take damage.
Ursine gear would be even better for that even if they are rated at lower level, since it's got the best protection (76% monster protection if I count correctly) and huge adrenaline point gains.
I just love the character development when all the intricate pieces fall together. It's boring if it's easy.
I like this build even more than the one I created with the euphoria mutation + full grandmaster griffin set and entanglement enchantment. 570% sign intensity and the enemies are in the slow motion mode like all the time. It was more like toying with them than fighting.Edited by Klocek001 - 8/10/16 at 10:20am
