I have an assassin with full natalaya set and fury suvayyah, I'm wondering with what skills or other equipment can I solo hell diablo ?? At this moment I'm damaging way too low, but I almost can block anything. Thanks.

Re: Assassin

or, I cant block the rare ones at the 4 places in hell. Not even with 54% damage reduction and 75% resistance all, 1.6K health.

Re: Assassin

Physical percentage damage reduction caps at 50%. You didn't mention skills, but considering the setup I would guess you're setup mostly in the MA tree - unfortunately aside from Dtalon, that tree is severely lacking in damage, even synergized.

Assuming you have decent gear for your merc and aren't too far level wise from Big D, you should be able to take the chaos sanc and him now that IM is no longer a factor, albeit slowly.

If you're looking for damage, consider another build.

I recommend trying the Aggressin by maxicek.

It outlines skills, gear, even a Nat's set version of the gear. It shows you a screen shot of his character he killed hell Baal with, so you can see what kind of damage you can expect.



Just to note ahead of time: with any melee sin, a huge chunk of their damage dealing is with Death Sentry. Only a trapper has the damage needed to kill swaths of monsters with their primary skill.

Re: Assassin

I used skills like he did now but I only get 1K damage? What weapon is he using?

Re: Assassin

That version used Chaos claws.

Are you hitting 1K after you casted Venom? His claws are green, so this shows his damage after using Venom.

Re: Assassin

1.5k max with venom. Anyway I need more damage now, cus I managed to solo Diablo but it took forever.

Any way to increase damage with natalaya set, fury suvvayah, laying of hands bramble mitts, string of ears demonhide sash, 30+allres 6%life leech amulet, 2x rings with about 6% life leech, 24% damage reduction in natalaya armor ????? <edit> and the skills that was recommended on that link.

Re: Assassin

It seems you lack CB, which is understandable with Nat's.

CB gloves + Strength Claw can give you quite a bit. Raw damage alone will take for ever.

Re: Assassin

A Runic Talon so you can WSM bug with the Mark and have a decent speed. I'd look for IAS on the gloves and highlords if you don't already have it.

Re: Assassin

well i think its pointless with a runic talon if it doesnt damage very much. no other ways of getting dam?

Re: Assassin

I was thinking a blood crafted glove (which can have the same CB), but also has life and can get IAS.



And what exactly do you mean how do Runics work? o_O

Re: Assassin

what i mean is, isnt runic talon a normal weapon? how can it make much damage.
and the blood crafted glove doesnt have 50% enchanced damage, so i think steelrend is better.

Re: Assassin

35% Enhanced Damage
25% Chance Of Crushing Blow
7% Life Stolen Per Hit
+2 To Mana After Each Kill
+20 To Strength
+10 To Vitality
These are all applied to a "Strength" Runic (runeword).




Steelrends has ed% on it, but lacks IAS and also has a huge STR req. Besides, if you're this focused on ed%, you're better off not using Nat's. The guide I linked has gear that still focuses on physical damage while being effective.

Re: Assassin

ok, but one last question: do deadly strike and crushing blow work together? i found a 80% DS amulet.

Re: Assassin

highlord's wrath. but i later realized 0% based on character level could be less than 80.
