    That is all I'm taking with me
    So, goodbye
    Please, don't cry
    We both know I'm not what you, you need


    Intro

    Whitney is the seventh and last character of my Zod God Sept!

    Initially I thought I'd have at least one character whose Zod God item wasn't weapon. I upgraded probably couple dozen of eth armors, both for head and body. Those have surprisingly wide def range, even without any actual varying stats added. So, it was not meant to be.

    I also saved Amazon for the last, just if any of the exceptional (or let alone elite) spears would drop eth and perfect. It was false hope, not so surprisingly.

    After the last round of the RFL, where I finally found my first ever Zod, I felt I just had to proceed now to the last part of this Sept. Daggerzon has always be on my to-do-list, so the choice was not that hard in the end. What took a while however, was to decide what kind of Daggerzon I'd build? Add some elemental damage, like I have done with some other characters? Hybrid build? Bow, javelins?

    Finally, I decided it was time to show that it's possible to build very decent melee character with sub-optimal weapon; I went all in for the physical damage! This means I put all the points I could to the dexterity with her, so she's actually a glass cannon of a kind. Sure, some strength was needed in order to equip some of the gear.


    Build

    I never went so far as to calculate how could I achieve maximum damage per second or so, but I wanted her to hit as fast as possible. I hired myself an Act I mercenary and gave her a 'Faith' for that. With that I hit a 7FPA normal attack and decent Strafe. Add good amount of Crushing Blow, and 86,4% chance to do double damage, she could actually hurt things pretty fast and badly! (60% DS, 66% CS, 100-(100-66)*(100-60)/100=86,4%)

    Strafe with 'Wrath' was the little spice I added to this build, making it actually a hybrid build. I killed about 80% of the monsters with my Dagger switch, because it was the main theme after all. Still, firing Decrepify or Life Tap at will was an extremely handy tool, especially because my life was on the low side (remember, no hard points, no CtA).

    Having Fanaticism around meant not only more straight damage and speed, but it also took my AR to very high levels. It was great to land hits almost all the time. I actually thought to swap couple AR/Life SCs away and maximize all my resists, but instead just pushed on because there were not really any problems, only poison was a slight annoyance from time to time.

    I also planned to reset my stats and skills for the final push and check if I could squeeze in more dex with jiggling around with the items and the strength they added. Then I was meant to also check should I drop few more to the Pierce instead of Critical Strike etc. This is how I played through however, so I didn't make the re-spec for posing only :)

    Adding all the available points to dexterity meant I was going to hit max block pretty easily. To take advantage of that, I opted to use Stormshield, because I believed its defensive stats would be needed with my glass cannon approach. I was right and I feel I achieved very good balance of offensive and defensive sides in my build. I needed to be aware around some tougher monsters, but I didn't feel too fragile, which was great cause I wanted to be able to melee most of the time.

    Journey

    She was played as a Strafer through Norm and NM. Most notably she used 'Harmony' in Matriarchal Bow all through the Nightmare. Couple WSK and Pindle runs were enough to get her to level 76 and start her Hell journey with all the end game gear.

    I played through with /players1. Managed to get her killed three times I think, that's what you get when you rush with a glass cannon to the situations you probably shouldn't. As I mentioned earlier, she wasn't too fragile (as in always in trouble), and that allowed her to really go toe-to-toe against enemies and she felt really well balanced in that regards. Her tool box with Wrath, Decoy (+really beefy Valkyrie!), and Slow Missile could've took her through with higher settings, pretty easily even, but I liked to play fast and reckless with her. That box of tools was still used all the time, and it brought nice variety. One could think Daggerzon was a pretty boring click and hold type of character, but that was pretty far from the truth with mine.

    Little demonstration:

    I thought I was next to the Hellforge and Hephasto, heh.

    Few screenshots:
    Screenshot868.jpg
    These guys could hurt, ugh. Took few of them out with Strafe before going in the middle of them. My Dodge, Avoid and Evade were left at one hard point each (+1 from Highlords), and they actually work just the right amount with that. Can be useful but almost never annoying.

    Screenshot870.jpg
    Wrath's Decrepify is only level 1, so it needs really constant re-cast. Firing Strafe against PIs is not that bad, since it also has some magic and lightning damage.

    Screenshot872.jpg
    The classic spot where you'd be when being rushed in Bnet :p

    Screenshot873.jpg
    I allowed myself the luxury of having Thundergod's Vigor as a belt. I still managed to get killed down there... Sirens (amp'd all the time) + Rotten Walkers Charging you are a really strong combination. The damage can get surprisingly high. I noticed it around normal Rotten Walkers already that I was basically playing Russian Roulette all the time. Lost hard when amp'd, it could've been a Champion, maybe normal one, not sure. 1 hit K.O. Got my body back, to prove that little bit of patience this girl can walk naked down there...

    Screenshot876.jpg
    These can get annoying with their Stun, once there was only couple left with the Frozenstein, they got stabbed to death.

    Screenshot878.jpg
    First roll was a success. Must've been one of the easiest Hell Ancients ever. Cast Decoy, ran around here, two following me. No dangerous attributes, full melee it is! (after getting the LT up, heh, just in case)

    After these were down, the Whirler guy, Talic, was still whirling through the Decoy! Well he certainly can't be too dangerous! That was right, and he fell quickly as well.

    WSK and the waves and Baal were uneventful. Little Strafe, little stabbing was the tactic against every wave. Lister was handled with most care, as usual.


    Aftermath

    I'll leave the wrapping up the Sept to the Sept thread itself.

    This was surprisingly fun character! Definitely one of the funniest. The above mentioned tool-box was great fun and everything felt to be in balance; it was not a total pushover against everything, but I also certainly wasn't feeling underpowered!

    Questions, comments etc. are welcome :)

    Respect for the Daggerzon! It's a pipe-dream build for me. Maybe some day...

    Very nicely done! Thanks for the vid (except for the audio - I had to mute that :rolleyes:). I can't believe she died only three times with that life pool -- it just goes to show what fast attack, leech, solid defensive stats, and some minions can do for a build! It almost makes me want to rebuild my daggerzon . . .

    Best video I saw all week.

    Great write-up.

    Grats on the project!

    Finished with those Fine SCs of Inertia now? ;)

    Joy and happiness to you too! :) (or rather it gave me all those Bers, Jahs and Chams that could have used for many many things.. and one puny Zod! Duties of Zod God, those can be grueling).

    Thank you!

    Go for it! For HC I'd suggest more life though... You could compensate for the lost of offense by using a better weapon than me, like a Fleshripper.

    Woohoo, I did!

    Thanks!

    What a patient way of playing, cool! Shame that the pictures aren't working anymore. I'll read the last three pages later to find out did you make it in the end :)

    Thanks! I didn't doubt when you say it's a fun build, but it was still more fun that I expected. Way more stuff to do than you'd think.
    It would have been more than three times without 'Wrath', I'm sure. On the other hand, If I had adapted a slower playing rhythm, doing it without dying shouldn't have been a problem at all. Also tame rolls in WSK levels and waves helped some.

    Thank you very much :)

    What do you mean am I finished with those SCs? :p

    Thanks! I'll admit that I've come up with a few neat builds. :) The real Holy Grail is our Mat/Pat/Guardian Build Compilation though! Oh, so many good reads there! Those have sparked some inspiration to many of my builds.

    Congratulations, you ARE the Zod god, there can be only one :).

    I am starting to believe you knew you would end with this song before you started the build. Given the song it seems hou have a hard time letting go...

    That said, nice video, it seems the build and setup require you to switch between playstyles and stay on your toes. Incredbile how effective wrath combined with strafe is.

    Amazing that you managed to pull this sept off. Even more amazing that you sank that many good runes in it ;-).
