Are you sure so many points in Blade Shield is worth it? The damage increase is small. The extra duration could help but you can recast it after each fight
MB is mindblast which IMO is slightly more useful than CoS.Fafner said:I too was thinking the Nat's set, I have a pair of gloves with +2 MA, 10% CB or 10% CB, 20 IAS.
I wouldn't know what's realistic for HC, as I am of the beserker school of assassins. What's MB? Marrion Barry?!?
I guess i slipped into "explain things to nub" mode thereFafner said:@sunbearie
I know what MB is, I was just trying to be amusing and self-depreciating. My style of play is a bit suicidal sometimes. I love the you know what out of MB, now that I use it.
NSX, I have a boatload of Ort runes and Ort equivalents, approaching 100. In fact, the only useful cubing of low runes is to make Ort runes or other crafting needs. But, you're probably right....Alas. I don't know which is harder, finding/cubing the Ohm or finding the claw.
BS should be very useful, since it will let things like OW, freezes target, blinds target, PMH, etc kick in. Even if the damage the blades do is minimal, it's an excellent support skill. Remember that on multiple whirls (I'm assuming you don't really expect Hell baddies to drop after a single pass) you will probably hit different targets is important; you don't want baddie A healing up from your first pass while you're laying the hurt down on baddie B.Nightfish said:I'll use bladeshield mainly for style points and since I'll be whirling through stuff there'll be lots of contact with monsters so I guess that will actually be useful.
