    Guardian SoulSlayer : 100% CB and DS,2 Hand Fanatic Zealot

    Hello everyone,

    Finally done; after a real sick WSK experience, SoulSlayer has made it to guardian.

    Guardian SoulSlayer : 2H Fanatic Zealot

    He was actually built to become a normal fanatic zealotand was abandoned in NM act 4 for some time due to boredom. After I made my edeath Colossus Blade, I decided to try it on this guy. And so, immediately he was respecced to a 2H zealot. As I was playing with "death", I felt 100% CB and DS shouldn't be all that tough and here is the output.

    LCS (without might from merc).

    STATS :

    Strength : 87/146
    Dexterity : 48/83
    Vitality : 360/360
    Energy : 15/15

    SKILLS :

    20 Zeal
    20 Fanat
    20 Sacrifice
    18 Blessed Aim
    10 Resist Fire
    1 vigor,redemption and prereqs

    GEAR :

    Guillame's Face [Um]
    Duress Great Hauberk (almost throughout the game ) and Fortitude
    1.07 eth Death CB/ Demon's Limb on switch
    Laying Of Hands
    Highlord's Wrath/ Atma Scarab
    Ravenfrost (20 dex/248 AR)
    Rare Ring with resis(37 fire/9 all others/15 str)
    Nosferatu's Coil
    Gore Riders

    Inventory completely filled with resist, ar and strength charms.

    MERC : A2 might merc with eth Reaper's Toll(Amn), Duriel Shell, Andy's Visage.

    NOTES :

    1) Probably the most powerful character I played, especially after I equipped Fortitude, 14K max damage + 100% DS + Decrep from merc just sums it up.

    2) As a surprise, he wasn't exactly as fragile as I thought he would be. He killed everything before they attempted to do any damage.

    3) In an urge of getting as much life as possible, I tried to invest very less point in str and dex. I used all my inventory space for resists and stats, which got annoying as I wasn't able to pick up freely.

    4) Bosses....Ohh yeah...He just pwns bosses, in his main equipment, he has a 5/8 zeal with 10K-28K damage and 100 % CB. All the bosses died even before they had a chance to taste the decrep.

    5) Kiling speed on p1 and p7 didn't make much of a difference, but for safety, I played on p5(p1 in WSK/Ancients) in hell.

    6) I was never this annoyed with PI's as the killing speed decreases by a million times, but as decrep does its job, everything is dead in no time.

    7) Ancients died in 20 odd seconds without use of a potion. I really was amazed as they died even before I could get a clear view of their mods.

    8) WSK was really really painful as I had to reroll it 5 times :rant: to get to the WSK 2 way point. Every time those damn PI hell tempress spawn and my health gets close to zero.And in one of the rolls, it was just a PI spree. The whole of WSK seemed to be filled with PI's.
    In the final roll, Gloams spawned with conviction and yeah almost dead :cry:, a couple of lucky rejuvs and timely vigor got me out of it

    9) Item finds: A Lo rune somewhere in CS,Um from NM HF, hmmm nothing else worth mentioning.
    HF runes : Um, Fal

    SirPoops from where I copied the build.
    You for reading :)

    Nice character. Big numbers ftw. :)

    So just how much of a difference does 100% CB make?

    Thank You.
    Regarding effect of cb,a lot imo, this becomes pretty clear if we take the example of barricades in act 5. CB doesn't seem to work on them and it took more time to get them down than say Izual.It doesn't matter for low lives like fallen though.Prolly CB is the reason the build got an xtra safety from. It takes down big monsters very fast, leaving them no chance to kill me.
    And it really is fun seeing the three prime evils drop down in secs :).

    Congrats.

    It seems we have totally different approach to the game. I'm planning my characters so that they can do full clears in Hell, not so that they can kill majority of monsters with ease but no immunes. No reloads for me during questing.

    He can kill any monster; it is just that he kills non PI's(stone skin monsters too for that matter) so fast that killing PI's gets very annoying. My reloads were due to lack of defensive stuff on him.

    As for my game plan, it wasn't based on killing speed. I thought it would be fun to make a warrior holding a long 2 handed sword and I got the feel I wanted. Zeal with a 2h sword(especially CB or CS for their mighty'ish look) with a red finish from enchant made him look really cool. And what's the fun carrying a big sword that doesn't hurt? :grin:

    Seconded. Big red swords look fantastic.

    Great looking character. And it's a Guardian as well. :thumbsup:

    you probably knew this but... you do realize that CB and DS both cap out at 95%, along with almost every other percentage in the game. not that a 1/20 chance to miss is a real big chance. very cool tho, that's some serious damage :)

    @ kestegs : Yeah I knew that and as u could have guessed, 100% was just for some kick.

    @ all : Thank You :)

    Re: Guardian SoulSlayer : 100% CB and DS,2 Hand Fanatic Zealot

    That's not true. You can have 100% CB and DS, and then every strike will trigger them.

    It's a misconception that CB and DS themselves cap at 95%, though it's true that your chance to hit does cap at 95%. If you have 100% CB, not every attack will trigger, but every strike (i.e. every successful attack) will.

    To be as clear as possible: 100% CB is better (though only slightly) than 95% CB; I'm very sure that the same is true of DS and OW.

    You just blew my mind:smug:

    anyways...I was actually wondering that myself today as I was looking at that wand or whatever it is that gives %100 monster flee. so I was thinking that if they cap it at %95 why would they put that on there...plus I figured that since I actually said something about it on here I must have been wrong, cause I always seem to be wrong :scratchchin:

    I remember to learn about the cap in some youtube video guide. So the 100% CB and DS were not just for kick but also for some use :). Thanks SnickerSnack
