    Crushing blow...

    Just some questions about CB. I know that it works to cut down % on monster's hp when it activates, and it depends on normal/champ/boss monsters and all that.

    My questions are:

    1) Is the % based on the monster's current hp or based on the max hp?

    2) Is the % scaled with # of players? In other words, is that % based on 1player game monster hp or current # players hp.

    3) I'm sure someone thought of this way before me. CB kicks @$$, much like static does. Static is AofE, but stops at 50% in hell. What kind of build would be best for a 95% CB setup? Frenzy mace barb? Fanatic zealot? Wolfy druid?...

    Check the sticky faq at the top of the forum. The answers are all there (or should be).

    I have a have werewolf druid level 89 on Europe realm

    maxed his: fury,werewolf, lycanthropy and heart of wolverine
    rest of the skill pts in summon grizly

    While I am doing Baal runs I always switch my regular gear with my CB gear before entering his chamber:

    Guillaume's Face (Winged Helm): 35%
    Hone Sundan (Yari, 2 x Shael and 1 Amn): 45%
    Gore Rider (War Boots): 15%

    Crafted vampirebone gloves (Blood recipe): 9%

    Baal goes down in couple of sec’s :surprise: . When he reaches 20-30 of his original HP I switch back to my mighty 2H Axe (here CB is not efficient no more). I do 3.1 attacks per second (8 fps) in these attacks and have great attack rating => Baal is dead in a sec.

    Also Zealot with a Stormlash (mace) should be a great build

    1 current hp so its less effective the ,more you damage the monster

    2 CB does not scale it give the same damage in players 1 games as in players 8 games therfor its less effective in players 8 games because the monsters have a much higher life pool.

    3 anything with a very fast attack gets alot better with CB gear. vdzele example is great another would be a kick assy , think a 2 fps attack with that CB amount :clap: it would be devistating

    I was personally a fan of a WW barb with 3 shaeled Hone Sundan.

    (Btw, there's no 95% cap, it can do 100%)
