although I might switch it for an Insight eth CA when I'm Baaling

Final thoughts: I matted her at clvl 81. She is now 85 after some brief MP Baal runs last night and a couple of single Baal Runs. I hope she turns out to be a reliable Baal runner,cause my Hammerdin and CL/FO sorc didn't prove to be.

Thanks for reading everyone

Congrats , she should a reasonable Baal runner and decent for p1 in the WSK, that was the desgin that Nightfish wrote up about the build. How have you found her effectiveness in the WSK in /p1. Where is the rest of your skills pts going for her?

Re: Matriarch LukwatIfound [Fishyzon]

Looking back, do you think not taking valk might've been a better idea or not?

And why not +2 armor and shopped gloves with +3/20IAS?

Re: Matriarch LukwatIfound [Fishyzon]

@TedDeeBoy: She is doing nicely in WSK at p1. She can handle p8 minions quite well, with Bo'ed MErc,Valk and Decoy (thanks to RIbGriller for suggestion) I don't know about the rest of the points. Maybe it will be nice to have a char with undistributed points. Otherwise Valk and/or Decoy

@galhozar:It was, so to say, pointless to take a Valk. I owned everything. I might need her in the WSK as a meat shield. I'm not going for +2 Armor cause the IAS of Treachery is the only I got. Oh and gluck finding the +3/20 gloves :)

Congrats with the Mat :thumbsup:

I made one of these a while ago, but i also deleted her, because it was so long ago i'm unsure why :?

That is a very nice circlet too imo :)

Re: Matriarch LukwatIfound [Fishyzon]

I found 20/3 assasin gloves and 10/3 javazon gloves just by hitting anya before every pindle run in single player ;)

Getting the rare gloves you have is probably a lot more difficult than getting 20/3.

For P8 the zon I edited to try out just didn't have the damage to kill the mummies. When a lot of them were alive LF ripped them apart but then there were like 2 left and CS just wasn't strong enough to take them down faster than they regen. Then again I didn't have a merc when I tried it.

What portions of treachery work with ranged attacks? Is it more worthwile than a 60 IAS armor?

For the valk, do you feel she helped you stay alive more than she got you killed due to D/A/E animations?

Re: Matriarch LukwatIfound [Fishyzon]

The skills are at slvl 32 so the Cs is working quite good on the mummys.
The merc definitely helps with them too. I kinda like the mods on Treachery, what do you mean by what portions work with the ranged attacks. AFAIK all of them do.

Extensive testing is not yet done with the Valk in WSK but I feel she helps since:
ranged=LF+FA=Dead Monsters
but
melee=Stunlock or lock in Hit Recovery= Death

so the more the merrier when it comes to meat shields.

Hey, that's my circlet! :grin:

Congrats, glad you got good use out of it.

If you're doing Baal runs, put a pTopaz in it for more MF. Or a random jewel with 10% MF and other tasty mods if you've got one.

No, you dont :grin:

Zons are easier to play, but the other two should do just fine..

Try to hit the 55%IAS breakpoint (at least from the java point of view) - gloves are indeed your best candidate.

@galzohar: with only two mummies left, LF is not much. CS is often interrupted due to Achmel's poison aura (plus any additional aura he spawns with) as well as by random shots from the remaining mages. With low IAS, you hardly ever hit, since the attack animation takes ages when decrepified.

Re: Matriarch LukwatIfound [Fishyzon]

I'm not 100% sure but I think I had 60% IAS when I tested this. Then again I don't remember what mods they spawned with either.
