    Finds

    Nothing worth picking up that I can remember, Lem from Hell forge.

    Some random thoughts that this wouldn't be all readouts

    Could have swapped the shako for Andy's maybe but I had already socketed it and couldn't be bothered anymore.

    I hate manaburners more than ever before.

    This was the first time I have ever used Energy Shield and it was different, that's for sure.

    Was looking through the RW list when noticed Dragon has CtC Hydra and decided to test it out if I found the runes required.

    I'm not even sure the Hydras did anything to help. Well, at least I could watch fireworks all the time.

    She was leveled as a Fireball sorc, respecced at the start of A5 NM @ lvl63.

    Maybe not as powerful as the Holy Shock variant but fun nontheless.

    One could probably get more out of it as Paladin, because HF damage is so low without synergies and FM gives less bonus than LM.

    I just lost my CtA because I forgot it on the ground when I was swapping gear to check the prebuff levels to enter here :D :D :D

    Can't think of anything else right now.

    Thanks for reading

    Lovely character. Congratulations.
    How tough was CS especially with no strong back up against FI ?
    How do u think it would be if you used enchant instead of synergizing hydra?

    Thanks.

    Can't remember CS being that hard, but I did drop to p1 there. The only unbrekables there are the Venom Lords and uniques, so I let the merc handle them. All the others got a fireball or dozen to the face while I stayed back.

    Maxing enchant would probably be a lot more efficient in the melee fights, but I began to like using FB for gloams, manaburners etc and would have to give it up instead. I might try going the enchant way someday if I remember though.

    Congrats! Sounds like an interesting character. 580 life, even with ES, is living quite dangerously though. Any problems in that regard?

    P.S. Some pretty rare/expensive prebuffing gear, you've got there. :D

    Congrats on the Mat! Any plans on re-spec'ing her to non-ES fully synergized Enchant? You would probably get some huge fire damage figure on your LCS. :D

    .. and you know 1.13 is in full swing when someone loses a 'Call to Arms' via accidental save and exit but brushes it off and just makes a new one. :badteeth: (Sorry about the loss, and may all your Spired Helms end up as the non-cold variant).

    Thanks to you both.

    @Nagisa

    Yeah I had some problems with the low life, mostly with mana burners but also with hard hitters and gloams and such. I didn't count the deaths but there were definately over 10. After losing the mana bulb she didn't have too long to live when surrounded by monsters and stuck in a zeal-cycle :)

    @omg

    Might as well try that too if I ever get to it, it's not like the respecs are hard to come by.

    As for the CtA, it was such a stupid mistake that I just had to laugh. I wanted to check the level of the enchant so I threw on the buffing gear and dropped the cta/lidless to the ground. Checked the level, alt-tabbed to write it down.

    Absent-minded as I am, I started to clear and add to the note-section of the draft, completely forgetting that the game was running on the background. Got it mostly finished and decided to add the readouts. Went to s&e, noticed that the toon still had mang's in her hand and began to look for the stuff on the ground. Remembered something about rw:s, whites and how long the items stay on the ground. :banghead:

    Yeah enchant would have helped a lot in the attack rating department too. Having recently experiemented my self with thunderstorm I would have strongly recommended that as a prebuff over many of those fire skills you've listed. Thunderstorm has killed stuff for me /p8 wsk/hell.

    Mana burners do suck, haven't tried your build exactly but it sounds challenging. Bet it would have been nigh on impossible without the infinity too.

    So what's with the negative resists anyhow? Charms are your friend. :wink:

    Energy Shield sucks up the damage from elemental attack before resist are taken into account.

    Nice Mat there. Interesting to see dual Dragons and means I do not need to do it yet :thumbup:

    Hydra should of been pumping out some nice damage I think I had mine around 500 average, you have a lot more +skills to make your more viable than my bearsorc.

    I'm not so sure about needing more attack rating, conviction does decrease enemies' defense after all. Never felt that I was missing a lot.
