    Raskolnikov is best seen as two characters. He sometimes acts in one manner and then suddenly in a manner completely contradictory. These actions compel one to view him as having a split personality or as being a dual character.

    Raskolnikov combines many things for me: two builds and two items I've yet to make or use. Builds are obvious if you read the name of this thread, but the items are two runewords that I've had a good while, but never put to a good use. I try to use all runewords containing high runes at least once, and this time I had quite a few HRs in one character: I used my Last Wish and Exile for the first time.


    Build:

    I built him around those two items obviously, and filled the rest as I saw fit the best. My mercenary is a bit strange if you take a closer look, not the most traditionally equipped desert guy there. Reason: I needed a PI solution, but I didn't want anything overlapping with my Life Tap (other than the Dim Vision I had going on already...), because that could be very fatal... I also didn't feel like going with an Act III one with this, as I think there's builds that those would be better with.

    Max block with HS, of course. I think I could've squeezed few more points into vita, but I don't generally mind with min-max optimizing with characters that are meant to be played once through the game :)

    Sacrifice and Smite go very well together: Smite until LT pops up, start killing (and bleeding yourself) the monsters with Sacrifice. Smite has its utility uses as well; it's great to pin monsters against the wall with, or keep PI monsters stunned while merc (with all the added elemental dmg) does his job.

    Exile and its Defiance, my own Holy Shield and the Chilling Armor from Fortitude meant a lot of def. Add max block, good DR, stacked res and 90 LR, and the only threat to me was being myself...

    Video of Hell Baal and waves four and five:



    Journey:


    With the Zod God sept chars and my Magic / Rare only septs, and whatnot, I'm not having any too clear memories from Norm/NM. I know that I played him as all points to Sacrifice from the beginning. With enough life leech, you can slash in norm and NM with little to no problems. Life Tap becomes essential (IMO) only in Hell.

    There was a lot of bleeding, that much I can tell you. It can be played with quite normal twinked melee items, many of those have some LL anyway. I started to really use Smite only from the lvl 65 onwards when I had my LW and Exile finally on together.

    Few screenshots:
    Screenshot254.jpg
    Starting to get a feel about my Smite->LT->Sacrifice routine by the end of Act I. What took a while to get used to was that while I was really tanky, almost invisible most of the time after Life Tap was cast, I needed to pay really close attention if Dim Vision (Last Wish) or Confuse (Dream, merc) appeared, because the I started to take damage to self at an alarming rate. I almost got killed by that, but the real close calls ended after Act I because I now knew what to expect and was more concentrated on what was happening.

    Screenshot261.jpg
    Act II, my grand PI solution put to a good test: clear pass. If a PI monster apperead to be too angry I'd smite some and let the merc continue.

    Screenshot309.jpg
    Do you think I really HAD to move that much while fighting Duriel?

    Screenshot339.jpg
    P8 Travi. This guy took some time, but he was really helpless as we made a burger of him. I pinned him between me and the merc. I played on the lower players settings for the most of the time though, with LT etc. it wouldn't have brought much difficulties I believe, but this would've taken a lot longer.

    Martyr facing fallen angels.

    Screenshot344.jpg
    Ooopsie. Let's take a step back. Smite against the edges of River of Flame worked wonders, after other monsters were done. HF was Mal, by the way.


    Screenshot350.jpg
    Like I said with Duri... enjoying the blood spilling show. How many gallons of blood can one poor Martyr bleed?

    Screenshot352.jpg
    Trying to push Tresh Socket down that hole! He was too big to fit in, apparently.

    Thanks for reading! Comments and questions are welcome :)

    Very interesting, I would like to try this build out myself actually, although I highly doubt that I will have LW/Exile :p Out of interest, why Black Hades and not Dragon? Or whatever the HF rune word is :rolleyes:

    Not sure if I even thought about that. HF has really poor damage anyway :\

    But it would have been one aura more! I think I already broke my record for one char now :p

    Tremendous, as per usual from you! I like the multi-stacking auras and liberal use of high runewords. Very stylish :)

    Awesome character, as always :) Props for going one target hit. What's up with LW in a PB?? :eek:

    Is it Raskolnikov from Crime and Punishment? Fyodor Dostoevsky is one of my favorite writers. Especially C&P, Notes From The Underground, The Gambler. The Idiot has it's moments as well.
