how to get a low ilvl (if you read the cube recipes carefully) : Rare weapon/armor + rare amulet + rare ring → reroll item as level 1 rare item .Vyvanne wrote:As always, thanks for the guides and the huge number of builds to try fun things with!
Quick question - giving Lanaya / Twin Fangs sin a try, and I was wondering, when you say low ilvl abandoned craft, how low are you talking? Is it when they first start appearing in terror that you look for the first sacred boots/gloves/etc?
Also wondering how effective the build might be if I don't have a lot of abandoned shrines, how far the honorifics will carry me while I try to farm for them? I made a barb to 120 and farmed the first 10 or so uber charms but haven't really done any dedicated farming on it, iron spiral seems pretty boring to me so far and assassin is more active and fun. Should I try to farm up some more shrines first before trying this char, or would I be able to do the farming myself ?
I'm on multiplayer if that makes a difference, just playing solo.
it has no importance when they start dropping , or where you find them , you need that recipe to turn their ilvl to a low value . that way the required level to wear will be low (somewhere around 50 +/- something ) and you will have a lot more MO space to use . if you click on the gear description (picture links) you will see what are they about / how much mo'ing you can use on them
with this recipe you won't be having the best crafts , as they get stronger with the ilvl (best for crafting are ilvl 99 as they can spawn with the most affixes on) , but having more MO space can boost your build a lot in between getting from Honorifics -> to ilvl 99 crafts (or even better gear) . https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/wiki/affixes . so the higher the ilvl , the more affixes you can get on the item , but since you mostly care about the %dexterity boost at that stage of the game , you can ditch the other affixes in the favour of having more MO space . being able to mo them with -40% requirements will allow you to wear them with not much strength investment (and still have a lot of mo space left after that) , that way you can focus your stat points into dexterity and energy instead of wasting them into strength without much benefits
the honorifics can carry you until a similar spot where your barb is , you can get the easy-medium difficulty charms with them on , but by that time i'm sure you can manage to get some low ilvl crafts (they are also called "lol crafts" ) . you only need the belt gloves and boots as low ilvl crafts . For the circlet , claw and shield which require just dexterity to equip , you can use normal crafts for better affixes
about farming shrines , she can manage well enough in places like terror Khalimgrad or K3KBA with just honorifics on in order to get them herself . you can get the full mid game gear on in just a couple of hours as you only need a handfull of abbandoned shrines
good luck !
