which sorc build can do baal/hell alone
with 8 players?
I'm sure a Meteorb could, but it would take forever. I handle /players 1 easily, WS K 2 & 3, Minions, and finally baal never really give me too much trouble. Except Gloams... I hate them.
well, go for good equiped meteorb and you should be fine..
with a very strong merc tho u can get a single skill tree build too...
just use static and let the merc kill the immunes...
I can easily do Hell Baal with my blizzard sorc. But only up to +- 4 people ingame. After that, my merc has troubles defeating the cold immunes. Sorc has 8K bliz, max block and 1600 life. Might merc has eth crypt doom, eth stone and perf gaze. He does something like 1k-6k damage. For 8player killing a hammerdin would be better I'd say.
What do you think stone vs shaft?
shaft is good for the DR and stone is good for the FHR and HUGE def... i would go stone
I was thinking on getting a eth shaft and upgrade it to elite.
Above what def (2500? 3000?) will a stone be superior to the above shaft?
got an upped shaft (non eth 1456 def) on nl, use it on my merc and i also use eth duress on another merc... never used eth stone, so dont know if it's superior but i must say my mercs handle themselves very well
i'll let someone else handle the questions about the eth stone...
you learn best by trying different sollutions!
Upping an eth shaft is bad as it will loose it's eth bonus' (+50% base). Better off upping non-eth so you can use it in another build if its needed.
Are you sure? since I saw this in arreat summit :
"This can be used to upgrade Ethereal Items also. They will continue to be Ethereal after they are upgraded."
i think they mean that you CAN upgrade ethereals but mac is trying to say that it's not a good thing to do since it would loose the base eth bonus of +50%...
So they will only have the name ethereal but will be as normal?
No, it will continue to be ethereal (cannot repair), you just don't get the eth def bonus. This goes for all upgraded ethereal armour.
Weapons don't have this problem though.
That's what I meant.
So turnging eth items into elites will only work well with weapons?
Is it a bug?
Yes, upped eth weapons still work. Don't think it's a bug, just think it's a code oversight.
Isn't that what a bug is?
My lightsorc can handle hellbaal very easy. Se does like 26k lightning and I use a merc with reapers toll, duriels and gaze. I will get a crushingblow eqp for him soon.
I have 2 sorces, hydra/fireball/orb and lightning/chargedbolt/orb.
Neither is built for mf but do hell baal runs with ease (avg merc equip).
no pure elemental sorc can.
orb/meteor sorc is probably the best to that can do hell alone.
I concur, meteorb is the best combo for handling questing.
Bascially hit them with orb which in hell does nasty damage then place a few meteors and then FB them to death.
For immunes, I agree Static them and letcha merc taken down...I suggest a NM act II merc...with Holy Freeze, good LL and high def/res. Gear is variable.
Playing a single element sorc greatly reduces the spectrum of monsters you can kill. Simple statistics.
Pretty much any dual element sorc will do fine...just depends on your play style.
Hoohooohahahahahahahaaah hahahahaaa hooo meow?
