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.


Why do you even post shields when set is two hand weapon? And when rha shield doesnt has bear stance.

You didnt change my mind that the patch is big fail for melee unholy paly.

Trade in this game is huge fail, nothing will sell. Its not working like in more played path of diablo mode or D2 lod. Only few ppl played last season and trade was awful.

So instead devs making game better for the last few hundreds players, they trying to piss off last remaining fans like me.

Bruh. If you used the set you have no clue what you're doing with UHM.

The build has received a nerf to Regen and the poison Sammy spec got removed. Thats honestly not going to affect UHM at all.

It's not a "fail" patch for UHM. UHM was way to overtwinked and with the changes it has now it should be more balanced. You still have stormlord, you don't have tainted blood oh well just like previous poster said BEAR STANCE SHIELD EXISTS.

Set weapon? The set weapon is not required to utilize UHM properly. The 2h set weapon is quite shit and you shouldn't be using the full set only pieces of it (if using the set at all). The ideal way to use the set is to equip all set pieces except for the weapon because the procs are the most valuable components and combine it with a better weapon and Bear stance shield (other options exist as well). The set is basically noob-bait and people tell players to use the set because UHM is OP and it doesn't matter what you kind of garbage you equip in your character slot because you will be carried by the broken class anyway.

This nerf also indirectly buffs Lemures Paladin and gives players more incentive to go cold variant since before going Bloodthorns/Fire was almost no drawback in comparison to Lemures/Cold.

Trade in game is fail? My guy the ladder is literally resetting in 2 days. Look top right of the website. Why would anyone even want to trade let alone play during off-season/2-3 months into the ladder? Play this ladder from the beginning and see the difference.

This setup gives you 5 frame instant ranged (Full screen range) ability which does 35-45k dps. It doesn't have the greatest Boss DPS but it is safe and can do all content easily. This is the general setup I've used and the game became a joke with it.

--------------------------------------
Proc Based BT.

A more boss oriented melee variant of Blood thorns.
-------------------------------------
Cain Staff Divine Apparition / Symphony of Destruction Build (Requires a lot of jewel crafting)

Clears the screen with a single Divine Apparition in Duncraig.
-------------------------------------
Symphony of Destruction Sammy Spec: (Basically Sammy spec only, really easy to gear)

So much misinformation is in this thread about UHM that it's laughable. The build hardly got touched.
