Re: Plaugazon kicks ***?!

You can have a -50 deaths web with a -5 poison facet and a -20 poison monarch. I do not think the +poison adds when you do a switch trick. I think that only goes for rabies because of its aura on the enemy. So you switch -75% epr which helps the poison drain the life very fast.
Skill level is applied when the skill is activated, +% Poison Skill Damage is applied when the missiles (javelin and clouds) are created and -% Enemy Poison Resistance is applied when the target is poisoned. This means that, while the javelin's poison damage cannot be increased by switching to +% PSD, cloud poison damage can be increased if the switch is completed before the javelin collides with a target or expires (at which point it starts releasing clouds in an approximate 6 yard radius).

Or you could use a lower resist wand on switch if you are too poor for deaths web. Yes you will need the lower resist charge to break immunes but it will not break all immunes I do not think.
Medusa's Gaze Aegis' 10% Chance To Cast Level 7 Lower Resist When Struck (Poison Resist -51%) won't normally break any poison immunity that level 1-3 LR charges (PR -31-41%) couldn't break (PR -10% vs PR -6-8%): both will break 105% poison immunities and neither will break 110% poison immunities.

A top end poison nec can get ~16k nova though(without bramble), what about the ama?
At high skill and synergy levels Plague Javelin and Poison Nova have comparable base rates (poison damage per frame or second, where a frame is 1/25 second), but with the application of +% PSD and -% EPR PJ's rate drops off compared to that of PN, even against PR 0% targets (at most about 70-80% of PN's rate with a comparable set-up, with and without Bramble armour).

It's an awesome skill for the 40 points, and since you need basically just need +skills for it, it fits well with LF. Just a pity gloams are light/poison immune :<
All Immune to Lightning and Poison Willowisps have Lightning Resist 100% in Hell, which is easily broken with just Lower Resist charges and will never increase, even if a Unique is Lightning Enchanted (its LR +75% isn't applied since it would increase one of two existing immunities). It's conceivable to equip enough -% Enemy Lightning Resistance so that lightning damage is only reduced to between 1/3 and 1/2 when applied to broken immunities: for example, Griffon's Eye Diadem (-15-20% ELR) and four Rainbow Facet Jewels (-3-5% ELR each) would apply -27-40% ELR in total.

Unfortunately, if you did so then you might be sorely tempted to play as a lightning specialist, particularly if your hireling were equipped with a Infinity polearm supplying level 12 Conviction... :\

16k that's if that nec only focus on damage (even that, 16k seems too much, a level 55 p-nova is around 9100, with +10% on helm, +5% on d-web, +10% on a 2 soc, +6 skill head, +25% on glove= 50%) 9100x 1.5= 13650, which isn't close to 16k....:crazyeyes:

Re: Plaugazon kicks ***?!

that's actually a pretty cool idea as long as you can keep it alive. zon could use metalgrid, but she'd have to make one every game and when it dies.


screen shot or it didnt happen.
Yeah that would be costly i think, i was just going to equip the shield, but when my necro had a medusa golem it was pretty good :) it works with both poison nova and corpse explosion so things died pretty fast, as for the ama i just tested it and it actually works okay, combine it with some pdr, low block and it works a treat :p

With the increased Poison Nova damage in 1.13, level 55 Poison Nova with 40 points in synergy skills and +50% Poison Skill Damage displays 15,515-15,820 Poison Damage Over 2 Seconds.

Yep, if I could actually get stuff like that I wouldn't be talking about using a secondary skill :p

I got a question what would be better 3/20 jav gloves or trang gloves for this poison zon? Im thinking trangs for sure because of the 25% poison dmg. So easy to get too.

Crawling: DAMNIT! Now I'm gunna be called a liar... If you've read any of my other posts you will know that my comp with Diablo II cannot go online... Once I buy a cdr and copy/paste that screenie on it I'll show you guys.. ofc that will take time >.< I can buy cdr today if necessary but I won't get to another internet source inabout a week without being harrassed to gtfo.
