Having some power issues with the unholy caster as of patch 1.2 of Median 2017.
I'm trying to kill destruction Baal. Gear is mostly Ornate crafts with rare rings/ammy. Current damage with merc buff (Bloodlust on Qarak + MotW) and mine is 3.2k-3-8k with Mindflay. Around 125 lightning pierce, 50 other elements thanks to Euphoria.
Using Hailstorm as boss killer, and barb merc to make enemies hold still. Thing is, how can I kill something like Baal with a build like that ? He kills my merc in a matter of seconds, summuns stuff as tanky as him which destroy scourges even faster. In my memories this build was upon the strongest casters, if not the strongest. I have most basic charms and around 300 signets eaten. To add to the issue, the Mindflay beam increase per 9 levels, so I'm stuck with 2 beams at base level 26. (launcher, D2 1.14d)
Probably going to switch to holy melee using mid game runewords to take him out. Still, that doesn't really fix my issue here. I don't think my equipment is terrible either, since mobs go down fairly nicely, so does other bosses except sponges like Azmodan. I have no plugy and I play via launcher, so untwinked times here.
