Using Delerium bone visage +2 all
2 x Ethereal Bartucs with Zod
Chains of Honor (for resists) - was using enigma
1 x dual leech ring with resists
1 x Perf Raven
Crafted IAS gloves with +2 Martial arts and 28% light res
So with plus skills i have:-
TS - lvl 34
COT - lvl 26
DT - lvl 34
Shadow Master lvl 17
and all pre-req skills at 1 pt (making them all 11)
My question to you is how come it is so damn hard in hell! lol.
This is easily the hardest and most complicated char i have made yet (and i have made a lot!). Am i wise to put all remaining point in COT and PS (as i want to use COT as my 2nd attack after TS). PS does not seem to do much damage at all unless you max all its 3 synergy skills.
As i am playing non ladder sc, i am using norm gore riders. I chose tucs instead of chaos for the +skills and i did not want to just mindlessly whirl around like a barb lol.
I just find that one on one i am fine, but when being swamped by like 10 enemies my health drops to zero in no time. I am enjoying the challenge but as i say, i am used to necro and i am finding this hard (but fun)
I am wearing chains, as i thought it was important for melee chars to have max resists in hell now, and i could not think of any other way of achieving this without using fade (as i want to use BOS).
Oh and i only have 1 pt in claw mastery (so 11 in total). I have read the striking tiger lashing dragon build quite a few times, but was still a bit confused as to what skill to use other than TS (so i chose COT).
Oh, and i am pure PVM
If you can give me some ideal equipment ideas stef it would be appreciated
CoT and DTail works nicely together. Just get TS and PS maxed.
Are you attacking at the fastest fpa?
What is your block? try to at least get it to 50%.
Are you using a shadow master? they are good tanks.
Are you using a merc? try a HF merc to slow monsters down. they help alot!
well I think your build lacks direction. For instance why use Dtail when you have 2 claws great for dragon claw? is this a kicker or a claw assa?
i think you should follow he Dtail TS guide OR make a pure phoenix strike with dragon claw finsher.
max the fire and light synergies.
your AR is way too low. try adding a metal grid amu... also dont be so obsessed with + skills... you need
i dont have much esperience in PVM. i really only use my assa to pvp with .... i think reading the guides is your best bet... and asking questions specifically about the guide that you need answers too instead of just going off and guesstimating where to put excess points.
I am pretty sure i am hitting the fastest frame of attack, with a lvl 11 bos, and 20%ias on the gloves. My shadow master is lvl 17, and quite a good tanks, i have not hired a merc yet, i figured that as i am dying so much atm, so would he lol
