Matriarch - Makala - PDR Fendazon

Makala was named after my wife and this is very appropiate. Both deliver a severe beat down while taking hardly any damage at all and is resistant to many elements (my wife being mostly reistant to my charms, but I digress).

I had been wanting to make a PDR build for some time and just lacked the knowledge and the equipment to make it happen so it sat on the backburner for some time. Then I decided to make a fendazon after my attempt at an impalazon failed miserably (although this may be revisited soon). 2 helpfull resources while I was searching for info on building her were Sirpoopsalot's Noname and AJK's Cattleprod. AJK's suggestion about using max'd Inner Sight was gold and really helps the build due to being easily able to hit most monsters in the game.

But they all come away with the same downfall of the build. Survivability. No shield makes for a difficult time surviving fast/hard hitting monsters. If there was ever a place for a PDR build to find a nice niche, it's here. The PDR fendazon eliminates a lot of the problems that other fenders have. She's not the killer the lightning based zons are but she manages just fine in /p3 through hell.

I was able through compiling all of my best charms together to reach almost maxed resists and the 86% FHR breakpoint. The ethHone Sundan (courtesy of OMGWTFBBQPWNED) with the 2 shael's and the 20%IAS from the gloves allows me to hit the 5 fpa on the german attack speed calculator. Reapers from the merc allowed for me to kill the physical immunes...

Just wanted to mention that I had considered other weapons for this build but found the eth Hone Sundan to be far superior to Silence and CtA from both a cost and an effectiveness standpoint. I actually made a Silence spear and was just not able to deal with the slowness of the killing due to a lack of crushing blow and about half the damage you can get from a nice eth Hone Sundan.

She pumps out the following damage:
without merc aura: Fend - 506-3775 Jab - 259-1952
With merc aura: Fend - 704-5233 Jab - 457-3410
@ 5fpa...with 45% crushing blow and 69% critical strike

On the PDR front, I managed 98 PDR with this gear with resists mostly maxed with poison only at 72 and lightning at 76 of the possible 80. Reached the 86% FHR breakpoint as well. Those were my main goals, getting as close to 100 PDR with maxed resists, hit the 86% FHR, and hit 5fpa.

NDE's: There were times in hell where I would get a little too relaxed while playing her and didn't use decoy like I should to split up some of the worst mobs. For instance, avoid the Greater Mummy boss packs. They were by far the most dangerous to me besides the usual frenzytaurs and the Lister gang. Those I knew to split up and be carefull with, the mummies on the other hand, I forgot that they deal magic damage vs physical or elemental and wasn't prepared for the quick drop in life.

Finds: Nothing to speak of really. Forges were fittingly: NM - Sol, Hell - Um.

Future Plans: To thoroughly kick OMG's butt in PvP!

And if you read through all of that... I feel really sorry for you....

No, actually according to the LCS it was 2887 with fend and 2021 with jab. Like I said though, Inner Sight was golden!

Re: Matriarch - Makala - PDR Fendazon

Very nice character! I do have one question though, fend isn't interruptable so did you actually go into hit recovery enough to warrant such a large amount of FHR? (Not to mention your PDR making you not go into hit recovery a lot of times as well)

Re: Matriarch - Makala - PDR Fendazon

@Vang - I admit it may have been a little overkill, but I don't think other than adding life sc's instead of balance would there be much difference in the equipment selection.

Is Jab interruptable? The few hard hitters out there that you do have to deal with are usually seperated and as such, you usually will be using jab on those vs fend in order to proc the crit strike and crushing blows faster on them. In the large regular mobs though, yeah fend just rakes through the crowds without you stopping much, but I found that I used jab almost as much as I used fend.

:nod:

That damage is quite impressive for a PDR build, especially with the CS and CB. I forgot that hone sundan can be upped. lol. That circlet is pretty nice, as well.

Good tip about the mummies, I had no idea...

Nice build!
