    Random musings:

    Firstly, the name was stolen from a mate on another forum, who stole it from a popular animated TV show.

    I started this character with a question I asked myself “How far could I take a character using the minimum attack skills and a metric ship-tonne of elemental damage charms, gems and damage pluses?” I put a single point into Magic Arrow, a bugged MPK ring and every charm that I had and I started. And the answer to the question? Nightmare Mephisto. True, I put points into the Passive & Magic tab and use Decoy and Valk – but nothing else into the other tabs.

    After I came to my senses, I maxed LF and I started rollicking ahead. If the truth be told I couldn’t go any slower. Then came the decision on the back-up skill. I’d read that Ice Arrow had a decent buff from 1.07, so I went with it. The combination of Demon Machine and Ice Arrow was a killer (shatterer?), just a pity that you don’t do the explosive damage is conjunction with IA. In fact, it became my main attack and LF because the back-up.

    The final 10 or so skill points I debated whether to go for Immolation Arrow or Guided Arrow. In the end, cool-downs are something I usually try to avoid, so by default Guided Arrow became the go to back-up back-up. This combination of skills with the ultra-emergency back-up of Magic Arrow (I was pushed to using that by the Nightmare Ancients) meant that the build more or less cruised once I started using my skill points.

    As usual, the less said about the mercs the better but a level 79 Barb once I hit Hell Act 5 was good. I kept a few stat points under my belt just in case I found a Burra, but in vain.

    All in all I had an unexpectedly good time with this build, firstly with my little experiment and then with the power of the combo.

    Like the name and the fact that you actually used Ice Arrow. Is it auto-hit in 1.08 or what?

    So what you're saying is: "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is spongey and bruised?" ;p

    Cool mat.

    I think I inhaled a little coffee when I read the title. Cool mat, and great name.

    Congrats on the mat! Awesome to see that you are actually doing the 1.08 Sept (not that I doubted you personally, but it seems to be a rare feat).

    I like that LF became the backup attack. That's way cool.

    Which one is next?

    I'm doing an elemental druid, he's in Act 5 Normal. I had intended to go down the Armageddon/Grizzly/Hurricane route, but it looks like he'll be a Tornado/Hurricane/Armageddon druid. I'll still have a dozen or so spare skill points to use though and I have no idea where to put them.
