    Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    From what I read from the fishymancer guide where the gude stated I should invest 20 skills point on the Corpse Explosion.

    So I just wondering...how powerful or crazy with Lv20 Corpse Explosion (+7 skills item)..Is it really as good as the fishymancer guide stated?

    Well... Corpse explosion is basically a bomb whose damage is high but you can't control. Adding skills makes that bomb's area of effect higher. So... yeah.

    Nightfish said it well: There's no better place to put those points.

    CE is a very powerful spell, almost all you'll be using as a fishymancer is Amplify Damage and CE. My CE is at slvl 30, and I can quickly clearly whole rooms with it; just need one corpse.

    CE is the killing skill of the fishymancer. Your merc & skellies merely provide the first bodies before you can start the CE chain to kill everything on the screen and beyond.

    The only thing I would add is because CE has a dual physical/fire damage effect it is the principle method that a fishy can use to take down unbreakable physical immunes.

    not really, since Amp Damage, which is the fishy's bread & butter curse, reduces phyical resistance by 100% effectively breaking PI

    Like I said unbreakable. I have run into a few PI Ghosts that spawn with Stone Skin in Hell and for those even after Amp they were showing PI. But maybe I was just reading things wrong.

    Against PI's Amp works at 1/5th efficiency. So a monster needs only to attain 120% PI to be completely immune. Several combinations can be made to get to 120% PI.

    Is CE with 1 point invested and then + skills any good?

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    Any good? Yes.

    As good as maxed CE plus those same skills? Probably not.

    I'm c/p'ing this from Kirbix's Summoner FAQ on GameFaqs (Gotta give proper credit), but it illustrates the point well.


    Don't look at just the raw # given for range increase, consider what that means as far as actual area covered. And isn't killing things from even further away what this game is all about?

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    Yep, the really good thing about CE is the linear increase in radius means that the area increase geometrically with point investment. This means that each hard point invested into the skill makes the +skill gear effectively worth more than it was before the investment. Just don't push too hard on CE before your character has his gear and high level as it's a real mana hog at high skill level on a low level character.

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    Hm. I am making a poison nova with maxed synergies and some raise skeletons. I have only put 1 point into corpse explosion...
    question is if I should put more into CE or add skills so I get summon resist(or more into skeleton mastery)

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    I say max raise skeletons. It provides better (and more) skeles than mastery does. Definitely get summon resist as well. You should have so much +PnB that CE is at a decent lvl.

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    I loved CE on my fishymancer. It was a pretty pimped out one, with a merc using Infinity = -85% Fire res and -100% phys res from amp dmg. CE's 50/50 Fire/Phys dmg made me able to gather like sick amounts of cows, or in other areas large mobs, and just clear enitre screen with two CEs =)

    Don't under estimate this skill! =)

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    No, it doesn't, you just need to spam it more. The problem is that its very mana intensive. Unless you have an infinity you can put an insight on your merc for the medit. aura - you wont have mana problems no more!

    Remember that Amp dmg curse > infinity. If you could only have one, amp would boost your CEdmg more! Make sure all monsters on screen are cursed, shoot 3 CEs, see what happens, spam more if needed...

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    I finally see the light about Lv20 Corpse Explosion.

    I never think highly of maxing this skill but I glad that I did try to max Corpse Explosion and I pretty satisfy with the result...It easily kill alot of enemies easily without even knowing that I did killed few unique monster in my screen...

    yeah...I am now officially Lv20 Corpse Explosion Fanboy !

    Re: Lv20 Corpse Explosion

    Well, yes, you are right.. This skill is really usefull when monsters get a bit tougher. You need to get a good mana pool or Insight Merc/Iron Golem to utilize this skill fully!
