lvl 85 Druid
It's Fluttershy's turn today!
She'll bring peace, cuteness and a ton of hugs to the forums! And you'd better not try to stop her~
This one makes my MLP Sept 2/7 complete:
1. Rainbow Dash
-=Build, equipment and gameplay=-
[clicky clicky click!]
Summonning druid is what fits Fluttershy best as can be.
This is a very safe character - recastable meat shields make the gameplay so much easier! On top of that, I maxed Cyclone Armour and added some points to Hurricane for synergy and mass slow effect.
Here I should mention that the previous incantation of Fluttershy was killed somewhere in Hell with an incredibly stingy lightning bolt from a beetle miniboss. This, basically, was the reason to inves skillpoints to elemental skills instead of additional summons.
There are lot's of discussions about druid and necro comparison. But what they have in common is the fact that summoned creatures are meant to tank damage, not to have insane dps. Necro has Corpse Explosion to deal damage, and druid has to rely on mercenary. And Fluttershy's wolves took all damage that would otherwise kill Leharas or send him to hit recovery (thus seriously reducing his dps as mercs don't have great fhr frames). As a result, mercenary showed some really impressive performance: 1k-4k damage, 48% crit, jab at 5 frames per attack. Monsters were Decrepified constantly and chilled, and even the strongest boss packs were killed with surprisingly little trouble.
My guys tore Sszark apart so quickly that I didn't manage to read all his mods. Ancients were so easy that they looked like a joke after all effort and time they costaed to Rainbow Dash.
Have a screenie of a typical battle.
...I remember to have noticed that Act 2 monsters give some insane amounts of exp in Hell, but they seemed somewhat tough to me. After I killed everything from Luth Golein to Valley of Magi I hit the Message Log key accidentally. "Players set to 8". -__-
After that I felt free to run pits at /p8 several times (less than a dozen, I think), hence the level.
However, there were some moments that almost brought me to heart attack. One of these NDEs was, of course, caused by dolls.
Another unpleasant experience happened in Frozen River dungeon (Spoiler: I haven't resqued Hell Anya... yet).
Fluttershy was extremely lucky even before she started to wear equipment socketed with topazzes! In fact, I haven't seen such lucky character for quite some time! Here are some examples:
- Tal's amulet from some random hellhound boss in Nightmare Catacombs (yes, A1, thats right!)
- Titan's Revenge from (wait for it) Normal Baal!
- Um from Nightmare Forge
- Mavina's kraken shell from some random boss flayer boss in Hell.
Dear Princess Celestia.
Aenigmatic immortal characters sometimes can be such arseholes.
P.S. No offence.
Thanks for reading ^_^
