Added to the PvP guides sticky - seems to be pretty complete despite being called a first draft
Thanks for this
hehe, cheers uncle_mike!
if i ever get around to prettying it up, i'll let you know.
I made one of these last ladder round on Eu, with a 2 handed Death Decap. He was unbelievable. I was killing big bad barbs in a single, they had no clue what had hit them. A little tip too is to use demon limb to get some extra attack rating (considered bm by some, but who cares when you kill in a single hit).
The best part too is typing "BOOM, HEADSHOT" whenever you kill someone in 1 hit. Great way to make people hate you, haha.
I first used this build back in v1.09 or something when the bugged 'ith' sword was around (does anyone remember that?). It was basically an eth Colossus sword that has been bugged with loads of runes and had crazy stats. Id have it on switch and wait just in town until a barb started doing BO, then id press w and kill them in 1 fell swoop. HEADSHOT. Rofl. Im smiling as I type this.
Thanks for this. Finally nailing those 95+ sorcs standing in their blizzard. And I'm lvl88, even better! Lack of ds weapon hinders me, though. No one seems to have 2h eDeath available on euNL.
This made me look unique alts, namely eth Arioc's and (upped) Pierre which I could get on my own. How would they, or Pierre most likely, affect the current eBotdGPA dmg? And rares don't come with DS mod, right? Anyways, great build
edit: ...except that you can upg. uniques on L only.

they aren't exactly a common item on NL. keep at it and you'll come across one sooner or later.
%ds won't spawn on rares, so it's Lo runes if you get lucky on a nice 400%ed+ rare eth 2h wep with 2sox.
don't completely write-off the 2h eBotD option. sure, it lacks %DS and that hurts, but it's probably the best of the rest, excepting for some insane rare (and good luck on that one).
an eBotD Thunder Maul could be a lot of fun while searching for a 2h e-Death (or making one on ladder and waiting, potentially for a very, very long time).
That would give me a shield, a HoZ maybe as I have 1 spare, for more @res at least.
edit: toying around with runemaster sockets. After Zod 4sockets. 2xLo for sure but then, 40%crushing blow or 100%dmg? AR easiest from charms. Thinking 1 hit KOs CB could be better; if it procs same time with DS.. ouch.
edit2: but it is a 1 hander. so 100%dmg seems mandatory. Eth Arioc's (Lo/Ohm) on the other hand seems like my current botd dmg -wise, with a chance to double it. and crapload cheaper than socketing the Rune master.
Yep, I know the rare upg. works, and mad for all the rare 2Hs I've left unID before Charger. Most of them seem to drop at Travi...

get that -% Target Def cranking and you'll be hitting a lot more regularly.
Heh, I went the HR way Zod Los and Ohms. Now when ds procs I get same dmg as with eBotdGPA only now I have max block. Also when wearin Kira's @max 80 cold, 90 light. With Guill @ around 30 but then there's ofc a java/sorc who gets me off guard so pretty much always wearing Kira's.
But I must try the Grief way, too.
Yeah and about botd - in a war pike it also serves as an excellent zealing weapon - ready to pound away at the enemy at 5frame zeal if the charge doesnt connect
hi, ive been duelling on euscl with my charger for a while now, its my only pvp char, i am using enigma, botdwp409, hl, 2x raven 20/24x, gores, shako(um'd) i also have fortitude in krakenshell and coa (both 174 str, req) along with a guilames socked with 40 / 13max
my charms are mostly ar / life and max ar lifers along with a few resist charms, i have used edeath colosussus sword to some effect but find i go back to the warpike, sure edeath has more consistent dmg, but the warpike seem to give me alot more 1hit kills than the edeath which sometimes, more often than wanted leaves people with 10% life left or so, which as a charger really isnt needed , i was lucky a few weeks ago and found a 5 sox eth runemaster with 263 ed, and reading through these pages i see suggestions of 2x eth 2x Lo 1 x zod , which is surely a bad option when an edeath ettin surely works alot better and has alot more dmg, also dont forget that cb works a treat in pvp helping u get that 1 hit kill vs high life chars.
maybe someone could help me out with some viable suggestions for my runemaster as i was planning on throwing it away as its just taking up mulespace.
finally, how does phoenix (shield) work for a charger, is the dmg negliable or better using a highblock option like zaka with eld or 40 ed jewel.
