Hello fellow wizards
My name is Jonathan DawnHunter, and I'm a level 125 Death wizard.

Should I farm for cabalist boots? I will lose block and 3% pierce, is it worth it?

Well, first of all, for death the Krokopatra Exalted hat is slightly better than the Malistaire hat. It doesn't make too big of a difference, but it is a little better. The Bonesmasher robe (Rattlebones Exalted) is also a tiny bit better than the Malistaire robe. I wouldn't say either of those are worth farming for though, since the changes are so little. The Cabalist boots would be good, they are basically the best boots in the game right now. If you have the crowns, you should get the Eye of the Soothsayer from the Terror's Hoard Pack, it's really good. You might also want to farm Morganthe for the amulet, since it's pretty good, but it's not a big deal if you don't (it would also get back some of the critical block you lost from getting Cabalist boots). You might want to farm Aphrodite or Morganthe for a ring. Also, farm the Rat or Omen Stribog for a deck. Also if you want you could get a triple double pet, but that is a lot of work for getting a pet that's only a little bit better.

Keep in mind that this is my opinion, and everyone has different playstyles, so you may not agree with me, and a lot of this stuff isn't really necessary to farm for as your gear is already pretty good. :)

Critical and block both decay as we level up. This is built into the game, there is nothing we can do to avoid it. The cure is to upgrade our gear and get higher numbers of critical and/or block.

The way things are going, I suspect KI is phasing critical block out altogether - it's basically none-existent at high levels, as the gear is providing nothing of this particular attribute.

Max Critical is still possible to reach at high levels - particularly for Storm and Fire wizards - but you need Cabalist gear and a quad critical pet in order to reach the highest possible amounts.

Honestly, I can't say.

Do you have the Time Warden set from the end of Mirage? (They drop from Shaddowwock & Shaddowbones.) If you do, that is a step below Cabalist. You could try swapping in those slightly lower boots and also the hat, then see how it works for you. It could give you a taste without you having to spend a ton of time battling for boots you may end up not wanting after all.

Also you could check out the crafted set, since their stats are nearly identical to the Cabalist gear. Again, if they're easier for you to obtain you could experiment with them, and that would be much less of a time commitment on your part.
