Magi_Uzziah I have been playing MP alot lately with my passive barb who I have temporarly turned into a firewall barb, (wierd I know). After a bit of thought I decided to start a new build, I am going to play my magibarb build, I decided to track my progress and give some background to this build. The build will consist of these skills: 20 Iron Skin 1 Natural Resistance 20 Shout 20 Battle Orders 20 Battle Command (last points placed 20 Howl (For poison usage, explain later) 1 taunt 1 battle cry I know I know, this has 2 skill trees and I usually only play single tree builds, I thought this one was cool enough without limiting skills. Because of the nature of this build I will be twinking it heavily in order to get the skills I need and the damage needed for the build. I have made and gathered these items thus far for the build. Large Siege Bow 6*Tal runes (451 poison damage over 5 seconds) Trang's gloves Trang's Belt Trang's Armor Lots of poison charms, will be looking to condense and increase these rare ring with slvl 5 firebolt charges Moonfall with slvl 11 meteor charges (possibly pompiie's wraith will be used instead) Upgraded venomward to use until I get trangs armor on (about 16 of the harder levels for this build) marrowwalks (I have these on my passive barb and am considering the bone prison for extreme sitiuations like the FE superfast extrastrong that appears sometimes) I always play in softcore so the chance of dying isn't a big issue for me, but I will and do play as if I were hardcore. Thus far I have made it into act 3 normal, and have been using poison damage as my main source of damage, with my clvl 30 barb I deal about 900 poison damage over about 5-6 seconds. Howl and poison is nice, scare them away apply poison with bow rinse wash repeat. I barely get touched, let alone the 2000 defense I already have with the venom ward equiped. ______________________ The Idea behind the build, create a fire/poison barb who basically uses no attacking skill, but can handle his own in Hell. I am using trangs set to gain firewall and fireball, both of which I can get into the 700 damage range without much trouble. As an added bonus Trangs gloves give 25% poison damage. I will be using the gloves and a bow with poison charms to provide huge poison damage from a ranged attack, well, into the 1000 point range over a few seconds. My skills focus on control and protection, I will be using howl as my primary natural skill, basically a hit and make them run technique will be used. Firewall and normal melee attacks will be used on most non FI's as I find it works well to hold them in the firewall and attack them physically, I may use pompiie's wraith to have the ctc volcano. ____________ My other items have not been figured out yet, any ideas out there? I have a ring slot, helm slot, boot slot, and shield/other weapon slot to fill. Also how do you think the build will fair once I get to the level needed for Trang's equipment? Any help on playstyle is encouraged.
