... i.e. anyone who knows anything could give you an effective chargeadin build and it would work (no offense to Sip of course, he's just making it simple for you). Elite lvl 18 duelers will give you a lesser-used build that takes skill and practice to make effective. Perhaps you should rethink the title of the thread....acb123 said:chargers are extremely lame and there is no skilled involved.
are you aware of the set bonus from clegs sword+gloves?Matt said:I agree. If you do go with a charger like SiP suggested, i say use BF instead of clegs, BF adds 5 min dmg, which is a lot more than it sounds like, and 40 life is pretty damn helpful as well.
As for what i suggest, i say make a Leaper barb or a fireball sorc.
I've never tried throw barbs before, so why do you need to have double swing?kardinaal said:Pretty nice, but you'll have to replenish after every other fight, which will get tedious fast (unless you got 2 PC's). It's a nice weapon, but jabbers loose 1 durability each jab (3 attacks= -1 durability), so you should check your spears after each fight. On a throwbarb it looks nice as well I'd guess, but you'd need a second one with comparable damage...
Speaking of throwbarbs. A lvl 18 throwbarb isn't hard to make, doesn't require that much skill, and isn't your average "easy to do, hard to master" charger. Shop around for 3 high damage spears, get yourself a 3-soc armour and helm, put in max damage jewels. Deaths sache and gloves, fast boots, angelic rings and ammy. On switch one of the spears and a bone shield of deflecting with 2 max damage jewels (ask around in the act 2 shops). For skills, get 1 point in throwing mastery, 1 point in double throw and the rest of your points in double swing. Any left-over points could go in throwing mastery for damage and (less) AR, or double throw for (more) AR. Strategy: get a lock on him and double throw away. If he tries a high damage attack *cough* charge weapon switch to shield and pray
Cmon everyone is busting on chargers these days, reminds me of when everyone hated the Burrito GA zons. But hey chargers aren't exploiting any bugs here . Really vs real duelers lucky? Reason you guys beat the chargers you do is because they are not real duelers... They don't have the optimum equipment that you are useing for your build. They just threw the guy together half assedly and started haveing fun. If someone were to get serious and make a decked out 1h charger with max block and all small life charms he would be something to be reckoned with... The problem is your average serious dueler does not make a charger because everyone else and their brother has one . By the way I guess your build requires more clicking skills than the chargers eh lucky? (just messing with ya man )LuckyDwarf said:they are pansies at heart.. versus real duelers.
