    The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1

    Re: The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1 Well, up until now I didn't know the full extent. I knew it made monster corpses unusable and unrevivable. I recall seeing somewhere (obviously not a good source) of people using Nature's Peace to allow Salvation to work, and...

    The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1

    Re: The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1 The last time I tried to do CE bodies in UT it didn't work. I haven't bothered trying to DS or CE there in quite some time, as my Sin was a couple of years ago. Has that been changed? I always thought you needed a Nature's...

    Barb theory

    Re: Barb theory Right, tornado, my bad. I'm not very keen on Rift other than the Orb usages. And I thought of using Double swing, it really would make for a better choice? I've only ever bothered with WW, Berserkers and wolfbarbs, so I'm unfamiliar with the dual-weild side of things...

    The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1

    Re: The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1 I know claws aren't "pitiful" I mean on a kicker there are way better choices. Even rare claws I have found, or runeword claws never seem to do me much good. And yes, Last Wish is expensive, but the reason I love it so...

    Barb theory

    Barb theory Rift War Scepter + Stormlash on a Frenzy barb with mace mastery and the rest of the gear aimed at speed, then survival. Mace mastery offers light damage boost for any leeching but mainly adds AR for hit checks, Frenzy doesn't need any synergies or to be maxed really. All other...

    The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1

    Re: The Warrior-Monk, and Uber-Tristram Assassin Build - Guide v. 1.1 This build is in fact outdated, but only slightly so. Given what we know about blade fury now, it's a pity that swapping a big weapon for a pitiful claw is such a hindrance to dragon talon. This coupled with the removal of...

    Build choice ubert

    Re: Build choice ubert It could be argued that a necro is the single best support character for any melee build in uber trist. The reasons being A) he frees up the melee fighter's glove slot since he can cast life tap on his own, B) he offers a vast array of minions to draw fire and absorb...

    Oath vs Crescent Moon

    Re: Oath vs Crescent Moon Assuming this is Holy Shock + Zeal, the "best" choice depends on who you are fighting: If you are in Uber Tristram, then the Oath would make the better choice simply because the increase in physical damage, despite the build focusing on elemental, will increase your...

    Orb-It-Aller?

    Orb-It-Aller? I do not understand the point of the orb-it-aller build. This is simply a criticism, so take it as such. It seems all it is is a Meteorb sorc but instead of maxing meteor, you are expected to max fire ball. I cannot make any sense of this decision. The synergie bonus to fire...

    PvM summoner best gear question.

    Re: PvM summoner best gear question. -_- It's a summoner. You don't need stronger summons. Not to sound all cookie cutter, but when you are talking about the strongest skill in the game, you simply use it: corpse explosion. This is where your kill speed should come from. All you need...

    Pure Lightning Sorceress after ladder reset?

    Re: Pure Lightning Sorceress after ladder reset? All drama aside, this is by far one of the safest ways I have ever MFed. Between Holy Freeze, any source of cold damage (I socketed my Kelpie with a P Sapphire) The only real trouble I had (other than general PvM, which this manner is not made...

    Best PvM Paladin Guide?

    Re: Best PvM Paladin Guide? How do you manage nearly 2k posts and not know how to make a paladin? :O It depends on what you want. If you need a tank, then a Zealer or Smiter is probably your bread n butter. There are certainly some great guides on them here. But I'll offer a quick overview...

    List of ladder only items

    Re: List of ladder only items I have for sure found Gheed's on non-ladder before. I didn't even start playing ladder until about two years ago, and prior to that I have seen Gheed's drop. An interesting note I have found is that I feel Gheed's drops most commonly with Andariel, similar to...

    Question about avenger merc

    Re: Question about avenger merc Neither. You use a Prayer merc with a heavy Insight polearm. Vengeance is a very fun and powerful build, but its biggest drawback is that since A) you aren't attacking as fast as standard melee characters do and B) you are dishing out VERY little physical damage...

    Infinity question

    Re: Infinity question No you don't have to wait, unleash your lightning fury as soon as you see them. Then, once your merc is on them, life gets easier. I recommend getting a Nightmare Defensive mercenary from act 2 for several reasons. He will have Holy Freeze as an aura. This means he gets...

    Frenzy barb - Body armor choice

    Re: Frenzy barb - Body armor choice Typically frenzy is all about speed. With that said, while a Chains of Honors or Fortitude runewords could merit you great damage via ED% or skills, Treachery is very nice for its incredible speed found on an armor. The fade casing makes it decent in terms of...
