SO, thought this up and am currently trying it in single player (its my only sp atm). Skills: 20 Claws of thunder 20 Phoenix strike 20 Dragon Tail 1 to all other MA 20 Shadow Master (plus pre-req's) rest into mind blast done around lvl 82 Gear would be something along these lines: Armor: treachery (to save points into fade and venom plus the 45% ias for gathering charges) Helm: shako/andys (generally) or even darksight cause I like the dim vision and CBF belt: SOE/dungos (basic choice) Boots: shadow dancers (GL in sp haha) but maybe goblins/gores amulet: highlords rings: would like carron/wisp just for ctc nonsense but RF and a Blood ring would do. gloves: lava gout for enchant or +2MA blood gloves Weapons: so, if I happen to just find a Sur I wouldn't mind trying a wind claw and/or any combo of unique claws (which ever I find first). I feel like 2 shadow killers would do well to add nice cold dmg/slow to the light dmg and fire dmg. Notes: basic idea is to charge up claw of thunder and then use dragon tail to get a fire/lightning combo. so far I'm at duriel in norm and I am wrecking everything with this build. Quite mana reliant which is annoying but I think some mana leech would fix this. I also don't know much about dragon tail and its bugs/effects so any info would be appreciated. thank you. (the only items I am set on using is the treachery and claws.
