View Full Version : conc do ubers??
can a conc barb do ubers??
items?? do u need L337 gear? and if so what
IMO a concentrator barb with high crushing blow and being able to get down to 9-10 fpa attack with life tap should be able to do ubers with howl as crowd control but i shall test this to be 100% sure :P I suspect the top weapons would be stuff like grief pb, stormlash, heaven's light, kingslayer in zerker, balrog, highland, champ sword, etc ('ber' Crainte Vomir Legend Sword lol?)and a shield like sanctuary r/w in hyperion/troll nest would make stacking resists on top of barb's natural resistance rather easy hehe
I'd actually say Ptopaz SS would be better then Sanctuary. 60% cold res, 65% light res, Meph doesn't use fire, and poison isn't affected by Conviction. The 35% DR will be really helpful. An interesting Conc weapon could be a Death Phaser although I've never tried.
thx alot 4 the input
You dont need lifetap to do it, the main issue once you have the resists covered is to keep them from healing. Open wounds works, say from a duress and gore riders. If you can keep open wounds going, crushing blow and your normal damage should work (I did it with a low oath in an ethereal balrog blade).
Ok i have conducted some tests on modded SP on the possibility of an ubering concentrate barb and this is the video of one of the tests:
Max Sword Mastery
string of ears
dual leecher rare ring
20ias/10cb craft gloves
marrow walks boots
Kingslayer in Highland Blade
Dex: Enuff for max block with SS
Vitality: Everything and kitchen sink
Crushing blow: 78%
Max Block, Max %DR
Main attack: Concentrate @ 10fpa with >63ias from gear and base weapon speed -5, one handed
Tele to Uber with lifetap from marrows hotkeyed. Cast lifetap and concentrate away. On Bnet hotkey howl to chase away minions. Rinse and repeat :P Those huge blood pools u see from Ubers are all thanks to the 50%OW from Kingslayer hehe
i got a fort...wouldnt that be better due to the 30res that i rolled :D and like the ed since i already have enough str for a sacred plate. i have 64%block with a regular monarch(phoenix) but i do have ss and i got 2.2k health with bo. im lvl like 79 or something with everything maxed exept for shout with only like 4 pts in it am i ready or should i wait to get that shout up and some more health? and im guessing the nigma for moving and getting around better but the res and ed :( suggestions?
Well for barbs for me at least 2.2k life after BO is on the low end so i would hunt for cheap 18-20 life scs or WC GCs :P 2*Echoing weapons on switch also is a cheap boost. Hmm i do ubers with various characters and don't worry about the ed/raw damage cos when faced with a 650k hp monster, crushing blow rather than raw damage kills ^^ In my test an enigma was armor of choice cos 0 str = huge life and the mobility means u wake Ubers up one at a time hehe. IIRC that test barb (with legitly spawnable items) had like 4k+ hp? However i hope regular uber hunters who employ a concentrate barb share with us what their opinions are ^^
how did u get away with 0 str..base is 30...how did u get 47 str to get the 77 str req for the dusk
EDIT: and also could u just use dracs and gores?? or is the 5% to low for the ctc
Base str barb = 30
Take average of average anni + torch = 30 str
Dracs = 12 str (average)
Total = 72, charms to hit 77 for Dusk else none if you have above average stats for anni, torch and dracs ^^
Hmm ok i was thinking one could count on ctc lifetap from any item with a 6fpa or faster attack but i suppose it could work but reason i used marrows was not to wait for life tap to trigger but simply cast it when faced with Uber target :P
hmm..well i wish i had a anni and a torch...my gear /stats is as follows
383/12 ebotd cb
367 phoenix :(
ravenfrost 5/4 duel leech
EDIT: string of ears 15 dr 6ll
switch 2 +3 warcry sticks
life w/o bo 1398
life w/ bo 2468
str for the sacred fort. dex onlt gives like a 57% block with current shield
i do have a ss and i know i can get max block with that so im saying..should i get dracs and give it a try...i have 50 cb? not enough?
