    Telekinisis: Am I the only one?

    Am I the only nub that did not know this spell had a tactical value? Just the other day I tried it on cold immunes with my blizz sorc. The little stun effect it had was enough to keep my merc from getting overwhelmed. If you did not know this, try it. You will like it.

    This public service announcement is brought to you by nooblar Ron.

    If you haven't tried it, try it. If you already knew this, then have a laugh at my expense.

    Heh. Yeah.

    Way back on my old Vega Sorc she would use it to deal with FI/CI monsters.

    TIP: Don't use it on lightning enchanted monsters. It sets off the bolts, and that just gets your merc killed faster. Especially if you've got a good chunk of FCR.

    Yes, it follows the same principle as pyschich hammer, which i know you are all fans of just as much as me, except it does lightning, not phys/magic damage. It knockbacks the enemy for a bit, even if its LI.

    If it wasnt for lightning mastery, it would have been my preferred choice over p hammer, but with lightning mastery it can do over 100 lighting dmg per hit! 2 minute P8 hell baal runs here we come!

    Yea, but the barb using leap to stun looks like a ballerina jumping on the spot.
    Pyschic hammer is the most uber 1337 skill ever. (except increased stamina, which IMO should be maxed on all barbs) My HC conqueror proves it!

    Ahh, this one I am aware of. I made a HC leaper after reading one of the best character guides I have ever read in my whole life. Not the fastest killer, but amazingly powerful and safe. Lemme see if I can find the link because the guide is a great read even if you don't build the character.

    http://www.froglicker.net/d2/leap.html

    Kung Fu Fighting Space Zombies indeed.

    Dude, if you don't think that guide is AWESOME, PM me and I will send you a random elite unique. (while supplies last) and be honest.

    I like two things about the skill..
    1. I can help my merc deal with immunes by knocking them back.
    2. I can push a monster out of baal's range. If for example the shaman is FI/CI I'll teleport on baal's stairs and push him downwards. That way my merc can fight him without decrep on :)

    Telekinesis really shines if you have a load of fcr and knock a monster up the wall. yeah it's usefull.

    @ron above: yeah that guide is awesome :D the build is pretty ok and safe, however somewhat irritating because of the LA bug. The guide is hilarious though. Even if you're not interested in building the char, the guide is still a keeper.

    Didn't someone actually killed the ancients with Tk? So it's more useful than mere knockback. :flip:

    Exactly my thoughts. I did make a leaper, but I was looking for a leaper guide when I found this.

    Even if you never plan to build a barb, this guide is worth reading just for a laugh.

    I started to make a Leaper and then never finished him. Since I wiped my slate clean, I think I'll resurrect the idea and start one. I love the idea of a leaping barb...like the 12 Days of Christmas...9 Barbs a'Leaping....8 Zons a'Dancing, 7 Sorcies casting, 6 Necros Summoning, 5 golden SOJs...etc...

    My pure light sorcie uses TK all the time. I use it to open chests/barrels/whatever and pick up potions, as well as pounding LI so my merc can take 'em out. Very fun I think :) .

    My favorite part of the guide is the description of how booyaka came about.
