Jewelry was Eye of Etlich, Manald, and Cathan's Ring. At 30, dual Bloodletters till 39, then Dual Buther's Pupils till 58(the 30+ part there was Maareek's suggestion in one of his threads on the build). 58 brought me to Wedding Band Level, which would provide enough skill points for the 5 swing Zeal without Battle Command(I always let it die, and didn't want to have to keep it up for my main attack). I was still using the Eye, until level 65 when the Highlords became an option. The Drac's were originally Lava Gouts, but I wanted the Lifetap for the Ancients/Baal, so I switched then. Thoughts/Opinions Overall, the char was by far the safest I've played. He died a total of 3 times, 2 of which was due to me being reckless/rushing through somewhere(running into 3 extra strong/extra fast boss packs in Act 3 Hell, not fun), and the 3rd, battle orders wore off mid-fight, so my 800ish hp quickly became 400, and I died without realizing it =/. The only real flaw with the build, that I saw, was the 25% Flee chance on the Passion. I swear there were times where literally *every* swing was setting it off. Terribly frustrating. Of course there were also a couple times where I went through an entire act with it triggering only once :dontknow: I've got no real plans for the char currently, but I'll likely find something to do him with at some point in the future. Notes, etc. In an attempt to answer a few questions that may be asked The skillpoints on the warcries(Shout, Battle Orders, Battle Command) were calculated to give each one the exact same duration(I used a respec to do this is Act 5 hell) The Lightsaber mainhand was chosen for 2 properties; Indestructibility, and built-in anti-PI solution. The PI part was nice, until you realize that leech is based on Physical Damage, so keeping the char alive in a group of PI's was difficult without the Lifetap proc The Vipermagi was chosen because it provided a skill, along with very needed resists. The faster cast rate was also helpful for buffing purposes I had no weapons for the switch due to laziness. Echoing weapons would've been helpful, but I just didn't want to put in the time to shop them Quest-wise, I didn't do the Nithalak quest in any difficulty(I mostly just forgot about it, and didn't feel the need to want to redo it), and I skipped rescuing the Barbarians in Act 5 Hell. I believe that should cover most basic points. As always, feel free to ask any questions! I'll be sure to answer any I can. Edit: Can't believe I forgot to add this, but thanks to Maareek for the idea, as it came from him. Also to Thomh, who basically traded my all the AR charms this char had, plus the Arreat's Face as well.
