First Hardcore char after ..what was it again? 8 years i think....anyway ,into the problem.
I am right now lvl 74 lighting trap spec , and i am on act 2, the problem is those lighting immunity monsters.
is there a way to deal with them? My first thought was to respec on the martial arts tab and use phoenix strike and the other skills on the left.(i read some of the guides here).
I am not sure if i will be able to survive the monsters or even kill them with my current gear.( my gear is pretty crap)
how is ur current skill placement?
which runes do u have available and what are your resitances like?
what mercenary do you have and what does he use?
do you play online or single player? ladder or non-ladder mode?
for level 74 iŽd advice:
20 into ligtning sentry, death sentry, fireblast
1 into each shadow tree skill
rest into shockweb
that should give 2.8k light dmg and 1.35 k fireblast damage, enough to deal with everything non light and fire immune.
if u have a shadow master around, cast mind blast and cloak of shadows excessively, you should be on the safe side.
you could run hell andy or in nightmare shenk, eldritch, pindle and baal. treachery is a solid armor (shael thul lem) with skills, ias and chance to cast lvl 15 fade, gives you everything you need. if there is no spare lem yet, smoke (nel lum) gives nice resitances.
iŽd personally prefer a weapon/shield over a claw/shield over the claw/claw you use, because of the easy to come by rhyme (shael eth) shield with its 'can not be frozen'. it makes retreats much easier. accompany it with a spirit (tal thul ort amn) sword or one of the claws u have. the damage will decrease, but the survivability is better imo
the merc should be a decent tank, specially since most things should be dead pretty quickly.
if u respec and max fireblast, the LIs wonŽt pose much of a threat and it is for sure the easier way, than to use the martial arts tree
a treachery is a very solid choice and should u find something better, fares well on the merc
