I kill mobs with high density so that I don’t get boxed in. My question is about stricken, vs trash it takes an ungodly amount of hits to reach the damage of the gem with the lowest damage (between the ones in the picture), secondly, vs bosses it takes 2 hits to catch up to the gem with the lowest damage but at two hits from the lowest dealing damage gem you again do more damage with said gem.
- I can easily gain and maintain Taeguk stacks
- If I can kill enemies before they reach 30 yards or lower I can do about 60% damage per hit, at best I can do about 80% damage with Zei’s stone + passive
- If we pit Stricken vs Trapped you would need to hit an enemy twice to get up to and beyond the damage of 1 hit of trapped, but to be fair and give both gems 2 hits, trapped outperforms stricken. This goes for stricken and taeguk as well, only their damage potential is greater then trapped.
Considering this information, wouldn’t it be best to pick the other 3 gems or am I missing something?

From someone who genuinely wants to improve and I know stricken + Trapped is generally the two standard gems and I would swear by it, that is until I tried some quick math on gems which was at the exact same rank for fairness sake
