I didn't read the skill tree close enough. If it isn't additive, then yeah, that makes it much less attractive.

2. are able to use Vanish on cooldown more or less
3. have a better rotation then 100% Dark Protection stack uptime
3. is an unobtainable point, unfortunately. Unless there's something wrong with my math, there is simply no way to guarantee 100% stack uptime (even with perfect play!) if you don't have Wither.
