    Guardian Ghost
    Natalya's Odium WW Sin


    [​IMG]


    Hey, ya'll. It's been awhile since I've posted a Guardian thread. I've wanted to build this character since forever. I've never got around to it before. Oh, how I regret this now! It's by far the most fun I've had with Diablo recently. Probably the endless Pindle/Mephisto/LK runs have a big part in this, but let's not take away our focus hehe.

    First of all I want to thank @maxicek and @T72on1 for the input provided on clearing up my very blurry knowledge about WW. And assassins actually.

    I've started as Fire Trapsin for the first part of Normal, around level 30 I respeced to Lightning Trapsin for the rest of Normal and NM. Not much of note, typical grind. I usually like to start playing the desired end-game build from the beginning but this time around I wanted to go as fast as possible. And Dragon Claw is not exactly the fastest killer and not exactly Whirlwind so... Yeah. Nice skill, I like it, but you have to go much slower.

    I've initially wanted to grind up to level 79 (req. for Natalya's Mark) and then respec to WWSin. I've tried a bit of NM Baal runs a bit of Hell Cold Plains grinding and whatnot but it was tedious and not very time efficient. So at Level 76 I gave up and respeced. Equipped all of my end-game equipment except the Claw, used Bartuc's as a placeholder. I was expecting the going to be slow and tedious again because of lower damage, bad resistances and much lower %DR but surprisingly it wasn't the case. I was shredding through everything in Act I on /players8. Not the fastest kill speed but super safe. My life bulb never dropped below full at any point. I've tried a few of the skills suggested in the thread linked above, like 20pt. DS. Didn't like it and didn't find it useful at all. So when I hit 79 at the end of Act I I respeced one last time.

    Here's what I ended up with:
    Skills
    Code:
    Traps:
    5 (10) Blade Shield
    1 (6) Others except WoF
    
    Shadow:
    20 (28) Claw Mastery
    20 (28) Fade
    20 (28) Venom
    9 (17) Weapon Block
    1 (9) All others
    
    Martial Arts:
    1 (6) Dragon Flight
    1 (6) Prereqs
    
    Unassigned - 3
    Death Sentry was as useful with 1 point as it was with 20. Blade Shield is cool and I decided on dumping enough points for a reasonable duration. I'm still unsure if the stacked %DR from Fade works when cursed but there's no reason in dumping points in something I don't need/use so I figured what the hell. 1 point Shadow Master survives long enough to wreck havoc. It's probably the first Assassin I like to use Shadow with. Nice distraction. I'm considering dumping the rest of the points in Weapon Block despite it's horrid diminishing returns. I don't need them anywhere else anyway.

    I just now realized how great the roll was. I never even checked the range or the roll before starting the thread lol. I initially wanted to roll it in a Scissors Suwayyah but it turns out I didn't have one in my stashes.

    Final thoughts
    By far the safest character I've played through the game. Probably my Hammerdins have been a tad more safe in feel but not in practice.

    From Act II onward I dropped the player settings from /p8 to /p5. Physical Immunes with Mana Burn were extremely annoying and Act II has lots of them. Otherwise I had no other problems. Act III was a complete walk in the park. Dolls? Bahahahahaha! I breezed through on /p5 no issues anywhere. Act IV has high HP monsters, some with physical resistance so I dropped the players settings to 3. Total Breeze. Hephasto had Fanaticism. Laughable! WW-ed to death. At no point still has my life dropped below 2200. I even took on Lord de Seis head on. In late Act V I dropped to /p1. Every single area that could roll Ghosts and Physical Immune Frenzytaurs did. And most of the Frenzytaur packs had Mana Burn. I started to skip them, way too much hassle. Ancients were a joke as well despite Talic's Cursed Mana Burn. They did drop my bulb on a couple of occasions. To about 1500 life... heh. WSK and Baal I did on /p3. Easy. Baal took a while because of no Crushing Blow but was really tame. Reaper's etc. Only good drop was from the HF. Got an Um as well in Nightmare, so I guess she has a nice rune luck so far :p Oh, and the Anya reward was interesting:

    Future plans
    Trav runner. Will have to change some charms around to get ~100%MF and free up a bit of space for pickups.

    Congratulations! I've never liked WW as a skill, but maybe if I tried it on a better class of character :p

    Congratulations, and kudos for doing something with Nat's other than a Phoenix Striker. :)

    Congrats and thanks for the write up. It's cool to see how others work through some of the choices in settling on builds that allow customization. Also, +1 to @Zyr -- I went the PS route with my Nat's sin. But I also built a WW-sin and it was loads of fun.

    @crawlingdeadman - definitely would support the sentiment to give WW a try with the Sin; it's a totally different and fun experience, in my opinion!

    Thank you all for the kind words.

    @crawlingdeadman I've never used Whirlwind until now. It's loads of fun on Assassins. I wouldn't imagine it being this awesome on a Barb, but then again, how would I know? :D

    A little update on Travincal running. First of all it's much faster than I've anticipated. I haven't timed the runs but they feel fast enough for me which is good enough. The problem is without a high level BO and without Fanaticism the moron dies. Every. Single. Run. On /p3. So I'm running at a lowly players 1 setting for now. He still instagiebs to Conviction. I think when I get into the low 90's everything will be fine. Or if I decide to spend a Lo on an eBugged Forti and use Steel Shade which is not happening before I farm my Enigma so yeah. It's slightly annoying. :D

    My Wolfbarb's merc is using shael Reaper's, ral Steel Shade, and ias jewel Glad Bane. He only has trouble when he's surrounded and chilled from HF or if he is convicted and not leaching enough.
