Guardian #25 -Inpulsa - A Heartbroken Sadist with a Quick Temper

Kitteh

Diabloii.Net Site Pal



Guardian Inpulsa is guardian #25, and my second lightning trapsin, my first being part of a MP group. She utilises lightning sentry but I plan to make a charged bolt sentry variant in the future. I love charged bolt so much. Her name is a nod to my favourite Path of Exile item, Inpulsa's Broken Heart, which my arc witches tend to enjoy. She completed the game at P8/P8/P5, but could certainly have done P8 for hell. She is after all equipped with Infinity on the mercenary. She had no NDEs at all which was nice, and I never actually used cloak of shadows. She also unfortunately had no great drops, the best being the Titans which were non-eth and 9ll, but mediocre ED, 179% I think.

I think I'd like to play more of an untwinked style for a while, so I'm looking at perhaps a tournament character - S/U most likely. She has no real endgame plans but potentially she will get a batch in the upcoming Off the Beaten path tournament, we shall see.

Nice one! I like your p8/p8/p5 routine. I think I'll implement it when I do some twinked playthroughs this year :)

To clarify, some of my guardians are P8/P8/P3 :p They are P5 more often than not now though because I have sufficient gear that I feel I can't really justify not bumping it up in Hell!

Very nice as always. I also always like how creatively you name your characters. I mostly just aim for "simple and not stupid" when picking names :p. I'm questing my first trapsin through the game right now and it's an absolute blast. Given you had Infinity to break LIs, did you use Death Sentry much or basically just stick with Lightning?

I used DS quite a lot, mostly in areas with high monster density. Fire blast damage gets much higher once the lightning skills are done and points go in it, obviously, so that started a much greater benefit in the later stages :)
