That is exactly how I feel about the Blender. The Phoenix Strike mechanic and I simply don’t mix. With Blade Shield and BoS going, I simply couldn’t make out how made charge-ups I had; and that when I was fighting one-on-one. In a crowd I couldn’t see them at all. In the end it was the combination of the Wake of Inferno and maximum block that saw me through to the end, without either I would have never completed this build. Nothing more to say really! So that is the last of my parked characters completed and the last thing on my primary “to do” list ticked off. What’s left to do? Perhaps complete my 1.13 Grail and maybe even my 1.09 Grail. Perhaps complete my BoTD Sept. But as of now, almost everything I’ve really wanted to do with D2 is done.
