    1st Matriarch

    May I present my first ever Matriarch:

    SC Ladder
    Matriarch Elektra
    Martial Arts Assassin
    Level **
    Exp 1368487820

    Str 170 (233)
    Dex 170 (221)
    Vit 170 (190)
    Egy 25 (35)

    Life 734 (818)
    Mana 155 (213)

    Martial Arts Tree:

    TS - 20 (23)
    FoF - 5 (8)
    PS - 20 (23)
    All others - 1 (4)

    Shadow Disciplines Tree: {denotes pre-buffing level}

    CM - 20 (22)
    BoS - 4 (6) {16}
    SM - 9 (11) {21}
    Venom - 1 (3) {13}
    All others - 1 (3)

    Traps Tree:

    DS - 1 (3)
    All pre-reqs - 1 (3)


    Her Equipment is pedestrain at best:

    Winged Helm - 3 PTopaz
    Bartuc's Cut-Throat - Shael
    Ward - 4 PDiamond
    Griswold's Heart - 3 PTopaz
    Battle Gauntlets - 3% mana/life leach
    War Traveler - Upgraded to exceptional
    Wilhelm's Pride
    Raven Frost
    Nagelring
    The Mahim-Oak Curio
    For weapon switch I have twin +3 Shadow Discipline Claws, a +3 Shadow Discipline helm, and a +3 Shadow Discipline ammy, for a +12 pre-buff.

    Mercenary:

    Defiance Act 2 Normal
    Level **

    Sazabi's Mental Sheath
    Bonehew - AmnAmn
    Ornate Plate - 4 PTopaz


    I'm very happy with Elektra. The were very few areas where she had a really tough time. Hell Ancients, Hell Chaos Sanctuary (not Diablo though), Hell Tal Rasha's Tomb were probably the worst. That being said, she is definately not a speed demon, and all areas require care and time. Played most of Hell on /Players 3. All of Normal and Nightmare on /Players 8.

    If I could change her, I would have put 1 point into TS, and maxed Venom instead. The other points would go into SM or FoF.

    Nice work! Now take her thru the pits on some MF runs and up her items or collect stuff for your new characters.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks!

    That is the ultimate plan. She is a very good Pit runner, and I have a pretty good map to get there. I will probably take a break from her for a while though. Need to play a little bit more relaxing character for a while.

    Good job on the Assy. I did a similar build not too long ago, and it was extremely challenging. I must take notice of your interesting choice in gear for her, though. I assume that's because of the ladder restrictions? In any case, congratulations on your first.

    You got it. This is my first ladder character, and thus, she started completely untwinked. Luckily, I was able to get the Bartuc's from Dolph, and I traded for the Bonehew from Lucky_Seven, both within the SC Ladder. I probably would have had a very hard time without the Bartuc's.

    Congrats on your first 1.10 Mat. :clap:

    I am curious on how good TS worked for you in Hell mode? Did you only use it on bosses? Why would Venom be better? Would that have been your main killer instead of PS? Also, I thought Venom couldn't be active at the same time as BoS?

    In 1.10 you can use Venom and either BoS or Fade. They finally realised that poisoning your weapons should be a seperate action...

    Congrats on making Mat Hergrom, and good luck with the MFing! :clap:

    Thanks!

    The problem is, I did not use TS hardly at all. I did use it on Baal, but on the other bosses that just stay still, I just found it more damaging to spam meteors with PS. Since Venom can be used at the same time as BoS or Fade, it is much more useful. Even with Venom pre-buffed at only 13, it was about 1/4 of my damage on each hit. Just think what a level 32 Venom charge would do to my damage. Also, it is a backup in case of a PI, FI boss.

    I think TS should only be of real interest to DTail users, but that's only my opinion.


    @PoTaTo FuI - I am currently working on a Multizon and an Enchantress. I may add an IK 'zerker to the list soon.

    @Davemetalhead - Sorry to hear about your un-timely HD crash. Do you need or want any +to traps/assy skills claws? I have other assy stuff laying around too if you like.

    Thanks mate, but I'm looking on this HD crash as a chance to start everything afresh, so I'd rather prefer to use only stuff found by my characters. Did find my first unique with Gladys last night - Hotspur boots, which is nice, cos I never found them before - hoping this is a sign for better luck in ths future.

    Anyway, sorry to hijack the thread - again Congrats ! :clap:
