How is unholy melee destroyed? Stormlord is now obtainable at Level 18 instead of 24.
There are also options to mitigate the % Defense and life sustain loss with a Bear Stance crafted shield and/or
Runeword Level: 100
Level 1 Eagle Stance
-3% to Enemy Fire Resistance
+(1 to 12) to Vanquish
+(115 to 143)% Enhanced Defense
(11 to 15)% to All Attributes
Fire Resist +(41 to 50)%
+4 to Light Radius
, as well as
Defense: (3669 - 4503) to (4048 - 4968)
Chance to Block: 2%
Required Level: 100
Required Dexterity: 440
Item Level: 105
Sanguine Covenant Regenerates 3.5% of Maximum Life per Second
+(2 to 3) to Paladin Skill Levels
40% Hit Recovery
+(120 to 170)% Enhanced Defense
Cannot Be Frozen
. They also get more skill points available to put into Sanguine Covenant or something else, allowing for more flexibility.
Unholy melee will just have to be more optimized with gear (like most builds should) now instead of being able to face tank a majority of the content.
