Wrath-zon I hate Wrath. I think its stupid, but it is an interesting weapon. I've built 20+ bowies since I've played this game and am getting bored, so I'd like to built an equipment set around this waste-of-runes bow. It literally has no standard ed and no ias, which is retarded for a bow. Lets check the stats: Wrath 4 Socket Missile Weapons Pul + Lum + Ber + Mal 30% Chance To Cast Level 1 Decrepify On Striking (Excellent) 5% Chance To Cast Level 10 Life Tap On Striking (Not so useful to a bowie) +375% Damage To Demons (Good, but this kind of mod is off-weapon ed)+100 To Attack Rating Against Demons (meh) +250-300% Damage To Undead (varies) (Good, but once again, off-weapon) Adds 85-120 Magic Damage (Excellent) Adds 41-240 Lightning Damage (Excellent) 20% Chance of Crushing Blow (Good, but nerfed at range) Prevent Monster Heal (Good) +10 To Energy (Meh) Cannot Be Frozen (Meh, what bowie has no Ravenfrost?) Alright, so the theme here is obviously just weirdness. I'm going to build a kit around this thing that emphasizes "alternative" types of damage, meaning mostly anything but raw ed. she'll have a Faith rogue following her around to make up for the lack of ias. (I can't believe I'm going to use a bow with no ias, ughhhhhh...) Alright: Wrath +3 mat bow CoH Wire Fleece Laying Of Hands Gore Riders Highlord's Wrath Guillame's face Razortail Two Tasty Dual Leech Bowie Rings: -6ll, 6ml, +9min, +10dex -6ll, 6ml, +20 lit res, +4 min 20/19/9 Anni 20/19 Ama Torch Here's some critical stats with that kit: (not counting my charms, which isn't really fair because I have a pretty nice collection of charms, but w/e) The Decripify will go off ALL the time with 30% ctc. So everything I'm fighting will be slow and hurting, unless they're life-tapped. As I'm writing this guide I'm honestly at the point where I think I'm starting to understand why blizzard made this retarded bow. I think it's for a strafer backing melee characters or maybe Tritram. But I digress... How I'll do damage: 30% CTC Decrepify on Striking (Which grants me double damage and breaks 95% of all immunities.) 55% Increased Attack Speed (7/2 strafe) 100% Piercing Attack 60% Chance Of Crushing Blow 63 % Deadly Strike* 50% Critical Strike* +925% (!) Damage To Demons +350-400% Damage To Undead Adds 42-270 Lightning Damage Adds 85-120 Magic Damage (Almost unresistable) +13 To Minimum Damage +10 To Maximum Damage 10% Chance Of Open Wounds (Which is actually pretty nice at lvl 91; my bowie) 5% CTC Lifetap on Striking Prevent Monster Heal *(My zon has about 50% Chance of Critical, these combine for about 81% chance for my hit to do double. I'm not getting into it here, but that's how it works) That sounds pretty good to me. (I'm also not counting the Fana damage boost or my charms. I'll get a screenie in here once she's equipped.) Stats/Skills: +4 To All Skill Levels +3 Amazon (torch) +3 To Bow Skills +45 To Dexterity Defensive: Attacker Takes Damage of 114 (of one kind or another) 30% Faster Run/Walk +30% Faster Hit Recovery Damage Reduced By 8% Cannot Be Frozen 20% Life Stolen Per Hit 12% Mana Stolen Per Hit I think this build will own and be original and be a great support player. She would even be good in Trist, maybe. It could get dicey if I over-road a melee-rs lifetap, and her resists are acceptable but no where near Tristy needs, but the massive crushing blow and almost +1000% damage to demons makes you wonder... Anyway, does anyone have any critical thoughts on this build?
