    Martyr PKK Build?

    Not that I seriously think that anyone would do this but what would happen if somebody built a characterusing the maximimum number of Rainbow Facets that exlpode on death and then let a PK hunt them down.

    Follow up question...who gets the ear?

    Follow up to the follow up...who is considered the better PK? :winner:

    Oh yea, since this is a one shot deal in HC, I would assume that it would only be used to kill the "Best" PK out there. Who then gets the title of BEST PK?

    Make a level 1 looter for the gear with all applicable WP's. Then level up another.

    What would be even more fun is to name your character Ploding_RbowFacet, and have jools on a switched weapon. Muhahaha.

    Hah...forgot about the weapons. Better yet, dual weilding 6 socket crystal sword barb. That would be 19 facets. Could it be increased anymore?

    Maybe make this a forum project? Everyone donates one of their lesser Facets that they can't trade. Then sucker punch some of these lamers. Hah, wouldn't that be the best joke since the game came out. :lol:

    Thing is, I doubt the jools stack. So on switch, have one ploder, one lvl 43 frost nova and one poison explosion thing. I forget if there is others and I have only seen these three and own the frost nova one. Would have to be on switch to keep lamer MHers from seeing it til too late. The rest of your gear would have to be crap too to make this even more funny.

    It was posted on another forum i believe but rainbow facets of the same spell type do NOT stack. Ie. 2 rainbow facets which cast meteor when you die will only cast meteor once in total when you die. Rainbow facets of different types eg. meteor and blizzard will both cast when you die. Stacking rainbow facets is still useful for the +damage %/-enemy res %

    OK...well then. One of each (Fire, Cold, Electricity, Poison) on a character. How much damage would that do?

    Also, if your merc is equipped with the same set up, does that mean that when he dies along with your character that the facets will also release their explosion?

    Hmmmm...that makes me wonder. If a merc is equipped with these facets, does he explode when someone kills him? Can you use that to have your merc go outside of town while standing in town to kill someone if he/she is attacked. Damn, did I just create a new PK scam.

    Not sure all of the jools do their thing when you die. Of the three I noticed, only the meteor one did. When I get home from work I will check my frost nova one and see what it says.

    Damage for facet deaths, please correct me if I am incorrect.
    <Taken from Arreat Summit and v1.10 skill planner>
    Poison Nova: 1637-1671 over 2 seconds
    Blizzard: 1575-1641
    Meteor: 1762-1842 (405-426 per second)
    Chain Lightning: 1-686 (14 hits)
    Total before PvP penalty: 4975-5840
    Total after PvP penalty:497.5-584.0

    I did not factor in resists as facets,enemy resists, and absorb will vary.

    from what i hear, Only 1 type of jewel will work at a time. Heres what i suggest:

    1 of each jewel in a socketed crystal sword, kept on switch.

    Your Best bet would be a Paladin. Max thorns and use it as your aura. Ideal target would be a high damage barb with low resists. The Thorns would skim off some of their life, and when you die...The fireworks would hopefully take him out.

    I really doubt this would work.

    this has been tossed around in a couple forums a couple different times, and the general consensus is that there is no way this would work, for a character or a merc.

    1st, no stacking.

    2nd, meteor would be useless, unless you caught someone napping picking up the ear, and they somehow missed the little red circle around your body.

    3rd, CL would be rather pointless unless they had a merc or you were around monsters, but this one at least helps a little

    4th, blizzard is too slow and doesn't do enough damage unless they stood in your blizzard for a while

    so that leaves the poison, which actually should do some damage, but would need a finishing kill

    so the one way this would work would be if the pk kills you, quickly loses a lot of life due to 2 second poison, has a merc so that the CL bounces around enough to do significant damage, and then stands still as your meteor lands on their head to finish them off. methinks it's not happening.

    Just got home and checked my rainbow. Lvl 43 when you level up, not when you die. So my jool is out for this build.

    Hmmm...that sounds about right. Too bad pali aura's disappear so damn quick now. Conviction may have done the trick. Maybe getting in a lower restist (from a charged item) before the killing blow?

    i still think there's no way- even with lr, the poison is helped, the cl is helped, but none of this is anywhere near enough damage... the only one that could do it really would be the meteor landing on their head, and taht just wouldn't happen

    Sounds fair to me

    My friend and I have played enough to acquire many of the best items in the game including a dozen or two of the elite uniques (only a few of the coveted ones like shako though), most of the exceptional uniques (many several times over) and 4 annihilus charms and 2 gheeds charms.

    We have yet to find even 1 rainbow facet jewel.

    How infrequently do those things drop anyway?
