It has been more than a year since I have created a mat/pat, so it is about time I corrected that. I am reviving my incomplete BoTD sept and in particular my tele-stomping slo-mo-mancer (with a bit of PNova on the side). I have been doing a bit of research and if seems to have the maximum efficiency slowing monsters I need to tick three boxes; slow from items/clay golem (Gumby - check!), spells (decrep - check!) and cold damage that is not holy freeze (umm...). At the moment I'm looking at getting my cold damage via the merc, I always use a town guard and for this build I was going to try something different. The options I'm considering at the moment are a cold Irom Wolf with Spirit sword and shield or a Barbarian Voice of Reason sword (probably in a 2H sword). A cold arrow Rogue scout is also a possibly, the Rogues tend to be a bit flighty. What do people think?
