    Finally; my 1st 1.10 brag thread!

    i'm pretty sure that none of you remember the thread i've made for my vex rune last year. i recall that someone wanted to bash me in the head if i made a silience phase with it :lol: . anyways, i've managed to find a good use for it.

    Heart of the Oak
    Flail
    'KoVexPulThul'
    One-Hand Damage: 1 to 24
    Durability: 30 of 30
    Required Dexterity: 35
    Required Strength: 41
    Required Level: 55
    Mace Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 39
    Fingerprint: 0x8d274a2c
    +10 to Dexterity
    All Resistances +32
    Adds 3-14 cold damage over 3 seconds
    7% Mana stolen per hit
    Replenish Life +20
    Increase Maximum Mana 15%
    40% Faster Cast Rate
    75% Damage to Demons
    150% Damage to Undead
    +100 to Attack Rating against Demons
    +3 to All Skill Levels
    Level 4 Oak Sage (25/25 Charges)
    Level 14 Raven (60/60 Charges)
    Socketed (4: 4 used)

    this is for my necro(lvl 69, NM). he's also using the perfect mara's that i've made a thread for, also last year. he's having a little problem though? he was 'suppose' to be an arty/golemancer. using BS and IG as main. i've maxed BS and BP. 5pts for both GM and IG. 1 pt to evrything else, 'cept for ai curses and poison spells. so is it worth maxing IG? i put 5 pts for IG and GM for use in early lvls and for speed. i'm not gonna put anymore points in GM, only IG. that's the original plan. so, i'm not gonna use uber items for my IG. or should I? how's your view?

    also, i'm just one ber short for ENIGMA :clap:

    thats a very nice runeword you have there. may he monsters of hell fear your arrival.
    as for the build, id put some into synergising bone spear (or spirit, they can both be called BS). if you end up relying on your IG too much, start adding a few points to him to boost his life. the tougher he is to kill, the better items you can put into him to make him uber without losing them in the first swarm he meets.
    EDIT: why the hell did you make it in a normal flail?? youll find it diffcutl to kill melee in nm and hell with that, and its a melee runeword.

    I would have added it into a flail as well..as heart of the oak is more of a caster weapon.

    The damage increase is not a lot. But the Resists, plus to skills and 40% faster cast rate not to mention the increase to the mana pool..definately better for casters.

    but if you put it in a 1 handed sword, or a hammer (4 sockets int that hard t get on a sword or hammer) youd have a god melee weapon and a god casting weapon. and if use that runeword on a hammerdin, as they are in need of FCR but also have to have a melee backup if you get swamped (whcih happened to my failed hammerdin alot especially in act 4)

    well i was planning to put it on a war hammer but i could find one with 4 sock. u must remember, u can't actually find things u actually need in the game when u actually need it :scratch: . flail looks quite cool too on a necro.

    ok, back to my necro, anyone got any more suggestion?

    edit: oh and it's bone spirit. and i'm actually going for a caster.

    Hrmm... I do believe that you can only make it in Staves/Maces, and when I checked AS I found this:

    4 Socketed Staves/Maces*
    Maces: Maces doesn't mean all Mace class weapons. As the top of the page says: Maces = Mace, Morning Star, Flail, and Exceptional/Elite versions

    So this means that you CANNOT make it in a sword, or a hammer.

    I just thought I might as well bring this up as I wouldn't want anyone to waste a Vex rune :lol: . You might have been joking but someone might not know that (I'm actually not to sure myself)

    If you're going for a caster you'd be better off working on synergies for spirit than on IG (IMO). It depends on how uber you're talking about and what your supply is like but its definitely worth using good items for IG. I've used IK maul before and that rocked. The damage is good and the crushing blow helps a lot.

    Congrats on the weapon, :clap: my hammerdin is jealous! :drool:

    :scratch: I need some education - what is wrong with silence rune word? Was it just putting it into a phase blade, or the rune word itself?

    My fireball/orb sorc found a vex and I still have not decided what to do with it. I was half thinking about a silence bow for a bowazon; if this is a bad idea, someone please show me the error of my ways!

    Nice weapon my hammerdin in SC use one although I don't play SC anymore.
    I got tired of it and I play HC now. He is the only SC character I have left. Didn't want to delete him if I decide to try on the SC grail again.

    I think a silenced bow for a bowazon is really nice. The mana leech/ 75%resists makes for a lot more flexible equipment and +2skills help with your passives. Only thing I would say against it is its damage has been over-shadowed by all the other runewords (BoTD? anyone).

    I think the mods on heart of the oak would be great for a hydride. Off-hand, best ones I can think of are melee/skellimancers and possibly an 2-H stave enchantress. Scrouges are super-fast too!

    Bravo :thumbsup:

    But I've noticed something odd with HotO + all resists, I have never seen one above 32%. Conspiracy is in the air :lol: .

    Many v/t PvP pally's (that's a smite/Fist of the Heaven's pally for you non-PvPers) used silence in phase blades because of its insane speed and for the HUGE resistence boost (especially for lightning, because of Conv+FoH).

    @araknis: yes i'm going caster, but the built idea was an arty/golemnacer. so, it's sort of a theme 'thing'. i'm not planning on any uber items for the IG. i want to rely on the thorn. if it's reliable. although, hands of justice IG would be great :flip: . an IG that attracts things like an FG. hmm.....

    @slowpoke: no silence is a great runeword. but since it already have a good resist, putting it in a phase would be stupid since phase is a one hander and have horrible dmg, 'cept for V/T. people suggested that i put it on a big 2 hander. but i scrapped the idea altogether. putting it on a bow would be wise since silence have blind target and other mods thats tailored for ranged attack.

    edit: oh and i forgot, when did u came back araknis?

    Bob: It doesn't work on hammers or swords.

    Hi,

    Flail is in my opinion the best choice for this runeword (And I have one myself) as for melee this runeword is next to useless and the exceptional / elite versions only have more heavy str/dex requirements.
