    Full aldur's set purpose?

    well, i wanted to use full aldur's set for the fun of it, but thinking about it, i can hardly see a build that could take advantage of it, so i'm asking for inputs, especially from those that used full aldur's :xsmile:

    I can imagine that that question must have been asked already, but i didn't find anything with the search function, maybe those threads got corrupted as well and deleted.

    i had two ideas in fact:

    - maybe add trang's gloves and make a rabies druid out of it with 3*eth runes in the weapon so i wouldn't have to care about AR. from what i've read, there's a debate on rabies being effective or not, so inputs would be appreciated ^_^

    - or a pure summoner druid with maxed grizzly/spirit wolves/dire wolves/Heart of wolverine, put i'm not sure such a build can be of any efficiency in hell...here again, inputs are welcome :xsmile:


    and if you have other suggestion, i'm open to them!


    i want to do something out of aldur's set... :hanky:

    Thx in advance.

    Ps: if only the weapon was a devil star, or there was a set upgrade recipie... :hanky:.

    350% extra damage when you get the full set tends, and a 9/5 fury if you dual shael the weapon, to make me lean towards a fury wolf with it. Although, a fury/rabies druid might not be bad with it... no idea. :)

    Using the Dragoon calculator, it seems that one shael, with level 24 ww, which you should have with full Aldur's, gets you to 9/5.

    To put it simply, you're using the calculator wrong. :)

    still, isn't the dmg on a jagged star a bit low? :hanky:


    maybe rabies seems to be the most suited, but as i've never made such a build...

    That is a pretty smug response. Perhaps I am using it incorrectly, but I am definitely not using it wrong. OK, english lesson over.

    This is exactly what I entered:

    weapon type: Mace
    Base speed: 10
    wias: 50 (30 from the weapon and 20 from the shael)
    non weapon ias: 0
    WW skill: 24

    This calculates to 5 frames.

    It's opposite of the listing on arreat.
    So, -10 on dragoons I beleive.

    Hunters or Summoners do well in Hell. You just can't solo 8 players with it. If you're really worried about the damage drop some ED jewels or Ohms in it. Then the set ED will send it through the roof.

    wrong

    1. In a wrong manner; mistakenly or erroneously.
    2. In a wrong course or direction.
    3. Immorally or unjustly: She acted wrong to lie.
    Edit: english lesson over

    You used an adjective where you needed an adverb.

    Ya I crossed this phase a while back and took some time out considering some possibilities. In any case dueling is outa the question I think so pvm.


    Fury Wolf A
    Aldurs Set w/2 lo, 1 shael in mace 40% D
    Lance Guard 20% D
    Highlords Ammy 28% Deadly
    which at level 76 to wear the armour **% Chance to do deadly.

    Firebear Wolf

    Cause you dont need speed if 1 hit kill.

    But in the end I realized that its a waste of time unless you just want to tout your using Aldur's.

    wrong

    \Wrong\, adv. In a wrong manner; not rightly; amiss; morally ill; erroneously; wrongly

    Edit: Feel free to try again.

    And on a side note Fenris, you should try looking stuff up before you take sides. ;)

    Aldur's might be good for Rabies/Fury because the damage isn't that high, but Rabies relies on skills, so... Yeah. But it can have somewhat useful damage to help out.

    Good luck.

    Edit: As to the English discussion: Mepersoner's usage was correct, but not ideal. More of an accepted colloquiallism than anything, but nevertheless accepted.

    Almost any and every sentence in the english language can be improved upon.

    Of course. That's my point, mostly.

    I want to see someone beat Hell mode with Aldur's set.
