I have one, and I agree the most.atigdng said:Fun to play? yes. Difficult? medium. With dual lacentors (sp?) and 2 gimmershreds on swich is the normal setup I believe.
It depends on the gear you have but they can also tank kind of well. Better than any other ranged char. And they have more life to. But the damage won't get to be more than 2-3k (correct me if I am wrong)
They can throw those things awfully fast. It is good to use howl/grim ward with this guy.
100% agreed, I have one too. Hardcore. Very fun to play ;]DeathMaster said:I have one, and I agree the most.
Fun to play - Yes.
Difficult - a little hard to start, but getting much easier once level up a bit. overview, medium or easy-medium depending on gears
Damage - it can go over 3K (sort of easy, depending on gears), as long as you have good weapon. killing speed is pretty good.
Weapon - 2x gimmershred on switch (vs PI and as backup weapon), 2x nice damage weapon as main weapon (one lacentor is good enough).
Tank - he can tank very well, a lot better than other ranged and better than many melee (eg pally)
Crowd controll - pretty good, smart using war cry skills, he is very safe
grim ward - waste of point IMO, it doesn't work where you need it most (can't make grim ward off undead)
My opinion - for PvM, use this, you will be unstoppable. It is too powerful, that it is banned in PvP.

Well said guys. I love my thrower. I have dual lacerators, gimmers, and eth Balrogs. The Balrogs own by far, 5k - 8k dmg. Godly when using frenzy. Even more godly in BAAL runs with concentration aura (14k - 20k dgm each!). Only problem I have ran into, is the fact that there is no -def or ingnore target def. So sometimes against those high lvl barbs or pallys in PVP, with high def, not much dmg. I can say, I have killed a druid in one hit! Well, enough bragging, i love my thrower!whomhead said:They're great fun in PvM. They wont do solo players 8 Baal runs - well, not very effectively anyway, but with some decent gear you can get over 4k max damage. Probably even 5k. One really nice thing is that using Double Throw, only your main hand weapon speed matters. So, put a really fast weapon in that hand (I reccomend Warshrike) and really high damage one in the other hand (crafted Blood Axes can get up to 510% ED!) and you'll crank out the damage FAST!
Solution to this problem: Replenishes Quantity!!!lCE said:They are fun to play yes, but the trips to repair (every 2 min) will drive u insane. A semi solution to this is to have 2 switches with axes/knives (dont use javs in pvm- ridiculously small stack sizes), even though this makes u tp to town every 4 mins instead of 2 :lol: .
Not if you're playing at P1 and doing 2-4K damageDeathMaster said:Solution to this problem: Replenishes Quantity!!!
You can make 6mins instead of 4.
And if you have to make a town visit very 2mins, you may never defeat ancients solo.
It is not how long it will last. it can last 10 hours, but that doesn't make it any better or worse.sunbearie said:I don't see how 1 pt in grim ward is wasted. It already lasts 40s at lvl 1
