PvM Brand Necro(?) I find that Brand is a seriously underused item in the game. The mods are incredible, and it just may deal the mot damage in total after effects than any other bow in the game. Brand Jah (31) + Lo (28) + Mal (23) + Gul (25) Missile Weapons 35% Chance To Cast Level 14 Amplify Damage When Struck 100% Chance To Cast Level 18 Bone Spear On Striking +260-340% Enhanced Damage (varies) Ignore Target's Defense 20% Bonus to Attack Rating +280-330% Damage To Demons (varies) 20% Deadly Strike Prevent Monster Heal Knockback Fires Explosive Arrows or Bolts (15) Wow! Nearly every mod is damaging! Going down the list, in order, we get: 1. Double damage 2. Magic damage 3. Enhanced damage 4. Always dealing damage 5. Seriously always dealing damage 6. Even MORE enhanced damage 7. Double damage AGAIN 8. Keep monster from recovering from damage 9. Keeps you safe to do more damage 10. Area damage What in the world?! Now, this would of course be GREAT on an Amazon. But I am wondering, how would THIS build work out? Thoughts?: Andariel's Visage Brand (Hydra/Great/Diamond Bow) Treachery (Archon Plate) Laying of Hands Highlord's Wrath Razortail Rare Resist Boots Ravenfrost 20 - Bone Spirit, Teeth, Bone Wall, Bone Prison, and bone Armor Now, according to the skill calculator, with full synergies and firing a level 18 Bone Spear per hit, the magic damage per spear will be 1108 - 1174. With this setup, we get a whopping 650% Dmg to demons, a plethora of Deadly Strike, and our incredible magic attack. The merc would have to be either a Faith merc (which would allow different gear) or a Blessed Aim merc, preferable with Infinity. Of course you could not go for bone armor and instead max CE, or split the points between Skeletal Mastery and Revives for meat shields. The attack would be 10 frames per second. I want to try him. What are your opinions before I spend four high runes on a Brand?
