The Passive Zon Check out Passive\Valk based zon. Champion Zon Priestess Lev: 60 Str: 100 Dex: base Vit: 225 = 893 life Eng: Base = 110 mana The Idea of this char is to just kill with the Valk and use Decoy to tank for you or Valk whichever you need. Admittedly, this is a kinda creeping death rate of killing but with the total cheezeball gear I got my Valk is lev 28 has over 4k life and just biatch-slaaaped Hell Andy while barerly being dented! And can solo a small herd (about 10 or so) of Hell Cows. even the Decoy at lev 22 can take about 30 seconds of pounding from a pack of Tainted before needing recast, Not bad for the 3.2 Mana cost to cast. My Cheezeball Gear: Skin of the Vipermagi armor-nice caster armor Howltusk helm- If i need mana for some reason I just take a hit or 2 and the mana is refilled! Gymnastic Gauntlets of Thawing- +3 passive skills 1/2 freeze. Sigons Shield and boots- +1 skills 10%leech (not sure if the Valk gets this or not, but the way she recovers life I think she does. Info PLZ! Ocher Heavy belt of the Squid- 20 LR +70 life Ring of Dim Vision - 24 charges rare ring from NM Ormus- resists at least 10 for all elem, DR by 2, 5% mana leech. Ok this not soooo cheezy! Athletic ammy +2 passive skills Maidens glaive +1 zon skills SOOOO SAD, BUT SOOO GOOD FOR ME! This might possibly be the worst gear ever for someone to try to solo hell with! I'm a caster that actually gets something for the VIT investment. ALL future points go here so by the time im 99 ill have 420 in VIT. I'm not sure what that equals, but I bet its a little over 2k life. Not bad for a non melee that only gotta worry about resists and there are a lot a ways to take care of that! 2k life+Max res.+Minimal melee Dam+Slow Missles = who said those lightning casting thingamajigs in act IV were tough? Not many can say that! This is backed by a thorns merc. a Decoy with thorns Rules! But i have troble keeping merc alive due to low resists so this I gotta work on. if I could manage a bramble I'd switch to the Freeze merc. My kingdom for a wand of Amp to really set the thorns alive! does this Exist? Skills- Simple, Max: Valk,Decoy,Critical Strike,Penetrate,Inner Sight (not the greatest but you got points to blow). 1 in Slow Missles, actually a usefull skill tat gets ignored. this leaves you 9 to divide to between Dodge Avoid and Evade( I went with 5,3,1 ratio). The only trick here is to save some and lean hard on penetrate at first to keep up your AR to get you to your Valk at 30. And best of all..... The Sheer HORROR of the party in cows when they find out that what appears to be the mighty Javazon, Dosen't attack anything!
