Wolfbarb Uber Issues As a long-time single player, recently converted to Battle.net, I completed my first Uber run today using a Wolfbarb and managed to snag a Paladin torch, which was great. However, I can't say it was smooth sailing. Being new to the whole Pandemonium Event, I read up on the Ubers beforehand and it seemed the beefed up Mephy should be the biggest cause for concern. Skirting the outside of Tristram I isolated Meph, hit him with life tap from a wand on switch and went to town with my grief phase blade. Less than a minute later Meph was dead and I was pretty pleased with myself. I proceeded to wipe out Diablo just as easily. However, Baal was a much tougher proposition. Once he activated his cold armour I really struggled to make contact with him and whenever I got his life below half his regeneration seemed to almost match my damage. Before I go in to how I finally knocked him over, I'll list my gear. For Meph and Diablo I used Helm; Wolfhowl "Sol" Amulet: Highlords Weapon: Grief Shield: Gerkes "Sol" Armour: Fortitude Sacred Armour Gloves: Steelrends Belt: SOE Boots: Goreriders Rings: Ravenfrost/Rare with attack rating and resistance Charms: Torch, Anni and attack rating/life and resistance. I had 5.6k life 27k defence and 13-14k attack rating (using enchant from Demon Limb). Only 25% crushing blow. Budgetly equiped merc used Tal's helm/Hone Sudan/Vipermagi (Now I know the merc is poorly equiped, but at this stage he hadn't had any troubles). My charge halted at Baal though as I suddenly struggled to hit him and his clone became a pest and my merc was wiped out. Heading back to town I swapped out the Highlords/rare for anglics and put on Goblin Toes. Crushing blow up to 35% and attack rating was 21k+. Slapped an ethereal Reapers Toll on the merc. Went back in and got Baal down to the last little bit of health but he escaped and regenerated most of his life. From then on I really struggled to hurt him as it became obvious I could only really damage him when decrep was triggered but he liked to wipe out my merc. I've already typed too much so I'll spare the details of the different things I tried over the next hour plus but this is how I eventually beat him. Lure him near the tp to Harrogath; go back in and hope merc attacks a summon and triggers decrepify that also hits Baal. I swing like crazy and hope I hit enough to hurt Baal. If merc gets killed or I loose Baal quickly sneak back through the portal to town (since I eventually discovered Baal wont regenerate when you're not in Tristram). Heal/resurect merc and return. Rinse and repeat while yelling at the computer a lot until Baal dies. After all that, what could I have done better? What better gear could I use? I feel I need more CB but not sure where to get it. What should I use as a merc armour, Duress would help I think, no? I'm working on an Infinity for my Dreamers merc, would the conviction aura be more benificial for knocking down Baal's defence than decrepify? I've read a few threads here and most seem to recomend a Last Wish phase blade but I don't think I can afford that! Any help would be much appreciated!
