I hate to ask, but I've run into a snag. In act3 and obtained all but the heart. Looked in Kurast sewers as quest states, but didn't drop from any kills and the gold chest only gives me magic items and gems after multiple resets. Didn't see anything listed in last couple patch notes or documentation on this forum either.

Thanks

Then you probably already have the heart if it's not dropping for you.

You mention a gold chest, did you use the one on the second level of the sewers, or the one on the first level? Because only the chest on the second level will actually drop the heart.

You get to the second level by using a lever to open a stairwell. The lever is marked in red on the map once you see it, but a better marker is the fact that in Median, it is guarded by a pack of Sinners led by a super-unique. So you know you've found it when you start getting Pyroblasts thrown at you.

If there is a consensus, I think it would be a5 barb. Personally I've almost never used one, not in recent history at least, but pretty sure they out damage and out survive any other merc, by how much I can't say.

Sorry again, just a random face that I thought looked troll-y. Can't tell if he's laughing at you, or with you.

I don't recall the lever/2nd lvl or the pyroblasts during my clear, but that should be helpful.

Thanks

Are you playing unholy pala? If yes then craft a Pala Shield with oskill Ring of Light. Really good Single Target skill. All other fire casters have good Single Target skills iirc.
And no, Flamestrike cannot spawn on rares.

Take a look at the affix table and try other fire oskills. I do not know how Brimstone and Funeral Pyre scale and never used them but maybe it is worth a try.

Quick question: does the assassin uberskill Phase Bomb also kill you if you attack the victims with thrown or ranged weapons, or does it only affect melee attacks?
