    New project :)

    I am currently planning on making an Blade Fury Assassin that will have as many %Chance To Cast Level ? ??? On Striking as possible. With the help of the Shadow Master I have high hopes on this build.

    My planned equipment looks like this:
    Weapon1: Crescent Moon Runeword (Static Field.. mmm)
    Weapon2: Chaos Runeword (Getting that Ohm rune might be hard)
    Helm: No idea yet (Harlequin Crest?)
    Armor: Duriel's Shell (No other idea here)
    Gloves: Dracul's Grasp (Nice life leech, life tap and strenght)
    Belt: Arachnid's Mesh (+skill, slows target)
    Boots: Gore Rider (CB, OW and DS, nice)
    Ring1: Whisp Projector
    Ring2: Carrion Wind
    Amulet: Crescent Moon (Need some mana leech)

    10% Chance To Cast Level 17 Chain Lightning On Striking
    20% Chance To Cast Level 13 Static Field On Striking
    9% Chance To Cast Level 11 Frozen Orb On Striking
    11% Chance To Cast Level 9 Charged Bolt On Striking
    5% Chance to cast level 10 Life Tap on striking
    10% Chance to cast level 16 Lightning on striking
    8% Chance to cast level 13 Twister on striking

    This is what I have come up to so far. I think I could reach atleast 10 of the %Chance to Cast on Striking. Would be pretty fun to just bombard the enemies with different sorts of attack types.

    Don't have any of those on the Amulet, Armor, Helm and Belt. Maybe I have missed something?

    Delirium. Ah yea. How could I forget that one...
    33% Chance To Cast Level 18 Confuse On Striking. How nice :)

    And when I look at it, Nosferatus seems to be alot better for this build too...

    Weapon2: Chaos Runeword
    Helm: Delirium Runeword
    Armor: Duriel's Shell
    Gloves: Dracul's Grasp
    Belt: Nosferatus Coil
    Boots: Gore Rider
    Ring1: Whisp Projector
    Ring2: Carrion Wind
    Amulet: Crescent Moon

    Oh, btw, you can to better on the armour, too. Crow Caw, for example. Or Boneflesh. Yeah, boneflesh seems better, imo. Goblin Toe might pwn gore riders but I'm not quite sure. I know it was better for my WWsin. Take a look at fleshripper fanged knife, too. Shadow killer for frost nova? I'll use 2 of those on my next assassin and I'll freeze everything. :D

    another thing, you know that BF needs AR to hit, right? (somebody correct me if I'm wrong, that's what people told me when I was asking about the skill ages ago) So you might want to consider prebuffing with demon limb and wearing angelic jewelry since it has no AR modifier of it's own.

    Yepp correct. The Crescent Moon runeword will give me Ignore Target's Defense which will help some I guess. No idea how much. Hmm, dammit. Just remembered that I can't wear 1 claw and 1 axe/sword. So I guess I have to look for a shield then since I can't make Crescent Moon in a claw. Will probaly go with CM as the weapon.

    Think I'll stick with Gore Rider. Kinda like all the mods on it. Will try out Gobin Toe.

    Weapon: Crescent Moon Runeword/Stormrider
    Shield: ???
    Weapon2: Demonlimb
    Shield2: ???
    Helm: Delirium Runeword
    Armor: Boneflesh
    Gloves: Hellmouth War Gauntlets
    Belt: Wilhelm's Pride
    Boots: Gore Rider
    Ring1: Whisp Projector
    Ring2: Carrion Wind
    Amulet: Crescent Moon

    Shield advice?

    Thanks for the suggestions Masas. I can't afford a Stormlash but the Stormrider sure is interesting.

    ITD does not work on bosses, champs and act bosses. Might want to keep that in mind.

    I can speak from experience that BF needs AR. My lvl45 BladeSin is on the shelf for now for that very reason. Can't hit a barn.

    Nacaa, AR consists of 2 parts, flat ar and a modifier. You need both. Just going overboard on one will not be enough, and will in fact be inefficient. That's why I use angelics for the flat AR and DL for the modifier. I'm not sure charms alone can suffice. Or rather, if you can't get something better out of your charms than out of 2 rings / ammy. Basically it's just costs vs gains. BA is an option too since your skill gives no bonus at all. Might wouldn't do much for you since you don't do a lot of physical damage to begin with.

    find yourself an eth bonehew and then put on marrowwalks.

    CTC bonespear. it'd be fairly weak dmg. but off the top of my head it'd still be 500+ per spear.

    just if your looking for something else.

    or get a non-eth one and make a hybrid BHS/BF sin.

    unique spiked shield has 50% OW.
    lance guard has stuff too IIRC.


    or go tiamats to add elemental dmg.

    Shield? Umbral Disk or Swordback Hold seem nice to me.

    Btw, good job on making a thread I can base my septsept BF sin on. ;)

    Why not Tiamats Rebuke for a Shield? Nice elemental damage and resists, it has CTC too (although the "whenstruck" CTC). If you really want CTC from the shield, then those two that Nightfish mentioned would work.

    What does the "Hit Blinds Target +1" on Umbral Disk mean? That it always blinds the target? Sorry, too long since I played last time heh. If it does, we got ourself a winner there.

    Thinking of going with Baranar's/Tiamats on switch for elemental damage.

    Hehe :)

    it means it can blind the target. but the rate you fire at after a few secs everything within range will be blind (if it can be blind)

    I think that's +1 on the check that's made to see whether or not the thing gets blinded. I'd say just try it out and say what it does or wait until RTB, Thrugg or Shade drop by.

    Hehe yepp ;)

    This is what I have gathered so far:

    Weapon: Crescent Moon Runeword/Stormrider
    Shield: Umbral Disk
    Weapon2: Demonlimb
    Shield2: ???
    Helm: Delirium Runeword
    Armor: Boneflesh
    Gloves: Hellmouth War Gauntlets
    Belt: Wilhelm's Pride
    Boots: Gore Rider
    Ring1: Whisp Projector
    Ring2: Angelic Ring
    Amulet: Angelic Ammy

    Hit Blinds Target +1
    10% Chance To Cast Level 17 Chain Lightning On Striking
    20% Chance To Cast Level 13 Static Field On Striking
    33% Chance To Cast Level 18 Confuse On Striking
    2% Chance of casting slvl 4 Meteor On Striking
    4% Chance of casting slvl 12 Firestorm On Striking
    10% Chance to cast level 16 Lightning on striking

    Level 2 Oak Sage (15 Charges)

    +10% Life Stolen Per Hit
    +5% Mana Stolen Per Hit
    +2 To Mana After Each Kill

    Blessed Aim Merc

    Seems like the crowd controll will be pretty nice on this build, would like more life leech though but I'm sure I come over a way to deal with that. The BA Merc and Angelic combo should deal with the AR issues.

    EDIT: And with points in Death Sentry this could be pretty fun.
