    Charged item builds?

    Are there any builds that use charges as a major part of their strategy or damage, even if only temporarily? The only times I ever hear of charges are with teleport or revive, and I'd like to see more.

    Good point! I was wondering about this myself. Other than the occasional use of LR or LT I can't recall any build that actually uses this as base, like CS or Zeal.

    Don't Blizzard Baal runners use the CE charges on a Bonehew to deal with wave 2 immunes? Granted that's not a build dedicated to using charges but said charges do come into play quite a bit during the questing phase if the build is twinkled.

    :shocked:
    no, they'd blizz Achmel and co then tele-bomb the CI skellys and let their merc deal with them.

    kind of like how i take care of Lister and Co with a fire-sorc: static and glacial spike 'em and let Waheed pound on them.

    Not that I know of any specific builds, however, after I found a pair of Sin claws with Zeal charges on them, I started thinking. :scratch:

    if you're thinking about using those with charge-up skills, you can forget it.

    charge-ups can only be released by a Finisher (Dragon-<talon/claw/tail/flight>) or by normal attack.

    otherwise, i'd be making a passion wielding tiger/zerker!

    i sometimes use the hydra charges on my torch to deal with troublesome immunes.

    most spell and skill charges will never do any actual damage, so the most useful charges are tele and curses.

    isnt there a weapon with like lvl 13 enchant? i know a build wouldnt revolve around it but it would help the char out with some decent extra dmg.

    one prominent build that i know of.. the enchantless enchantress.. using a synergized enchant charges from demon limb..

    btw any idea whether elemental damage from the holy aura is transferred to all multi arrows or only the middle ones?

    Demon Limb (Unique Tyrant Club) has lvl 23 Enchant charges and is often used for an AR boost in melee builds. Personally I've been considering some kind of Sin build with super high Venom and Poison Dagger charges.
