character idea


character idea

So i got bored of "standart" chars and decided to make new one. Martial arts only assasin. Well , almost . I decided to put one point into BoS, because i didn't saw any off them without it :D. This char is hardcore, and i twinked it heavilly, with all of my items , sacrifised all runes. All of them are end game :

Weapon : Firelizard
Shield : stormshield
Gloves : dracul's grasp
ring 1 : perfect raven frost
ring 2 : wisp projector
belt : perf string of ears
armor : archon plate chains of honor
amulet : highlords
boots : waterwalks maybe
charms : none

Skills :
1) pheonix strike - max
2) claws of thunder - max
3) blades of ice - max
4) fists of fire - max
5) what is left goes to tiger strike

Skills are listed in order in which they will be maxed in game . I just love second charge of pheonix strike , so i decided to max it second.

I wish that you guys would give me advices about my gear : shield , boots and amulet. Stormshield is best opinion , but is SO much strenght worth it ? Waterwalks and highlors both are quite good , but maybe someone has better ideas?

there are lots of MA sins out there. and your not even a purist. try only using martial art skills. but its defintiyl viable with some skill.

Since you will end up using your charge ups more then your claws damage for your attacking power you need to keep your eye out for items that have +skills. The other thing you need is going to be IAS items to be faster.

If you have not started your build you may want to try it for a while with out BOS and see if you can live without it and be a purist.

I play a trapper with blade fury and I am trying not to place any pts in any other tree. I am tempted to place a few in the claw mastery or for a SW/SM but that defeats the purpose of being a single tree build.

Edit: looking again at your build you are trying for what they call an elementalist.

I think it sounds good. Playing a hardcore melee character is a waste of CoH, IMO, but that's just me. :p Since you'll be hitting often and quickly, Gore Riders might provide some physical attack help if you want it. Natalya's boots give you good res and lots of FR/W as well. Highlord's is a great amulet, but something with res all might be more helpful in the long run--it looks like you might end up short on resistances if you don't have lots of res charms. Keep us updated on your progress. :)

Well, HC and CoH aren't exactly acronyms you find associated with each other on a regular basis. ;) :lol:
