yes , it goes quite nice if you want to try something new and interesting, it is capable of farming Dunc and Fauztinville , but not good enough for high tier labs . it deals around 20k damage in mid game . with dedicated gear it can go way past that . the itemisation goes somewhat similar to a lazy neutraldin. the skillplan is pretty much obious , with maxing wolves , MK and BH as sinergies , spirit guide and runemaster for some well needed defense , 1-pointer immortal and thundergod , 1-pointer wolf stance for some movement speed and %FHR. You can cast War Cry from left click . sadly ,War Cry no longer leeches , therefore Eagle stance can be a valid option if you want to avoid drinking heal pots too often and it also pairs well with the
Spirit Walker
Spirit Walker
Heavy Boots (Sacred)

Defense: 696 to 737
Required Level: 100
Required Strength: 492
Item Level: 120
+1% Physical Resist per 18% Mana Regeneration
+(50 to 100) Energy Factor to Spell Damage
+2 to All Skills
(0 to 40)% Movement Speed
Jitan's Gate Cooldown Reduced by 1 seconds
-15% to Enemy Elemental Resistances
+35% to Physical/Magic Spell Damage
Socketed (4)
boots for some free %DR

it's worth a shot imo (but you may want to turn the sound off, as all those cries can be annoying after some point :lol: )

What do you mean it doesnt leech? According to the toltip, it leeches 4% dmg per ancient blood base lvl.
If it is decent i might try it, because i absolutely despise summoner builds, and throw is kind of clunky, unless you have enough gear to clear with stampede, which does pretty bad dmg.

is trap sin with just lightening useful by itself later? it feels like i require catalyst trap to kill anything, and using clockwork slippers so cata trap isn't on such an extremely long cd, makes fire trap practically worthless.

I'm currently working on hard switching to maelstrom sin, since the necessity of catalyst trap to do dmg with it's cd is such an extreme slowdown on a relatively fast paced game. but am still curious.

Hello,

I don't understand a point regarding this guide and the Mystic Orb : https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/wiki/poison
1 - In the guide it is said that we need to raise the duration of the poison because the damage will be raised accordingly
2 - All the Mystic Orb have : Poison Length Reduced by x%

The Mystic Orb are supposed to be an upgrade... but in this case it seems to be a downgrade for the damage potencial

The Mystic Orb you and the guide are referring to has been removed.

The "Poison Length Reduced" Mystic Orb is actually a defensive stat. For example, if you are poisoned for one second and have 50% reduction, you are only poisoned for half a second, while keeping the dps constant for half the damage taken.

The page itself says on the top that it is outdated.

At what stage of the game are you? What's your gear?

End-game bows for bowazon: are any better than a rare with 200ed and 300+max damage and tantrum?

Secret bow - looks interesting
Stardust (Auhe) - also interesting but reliant on elemental damage
Xis bows - up to 500 max damage on SuXis but miss on tantrum -> good option?

A crafted one is the best, but you dont need tantrum on it, petulant is not the only good body armor. Enhanced ice breaker can be pretty good, but the huge range on the dmg roll makes it questionable. Personally i think a crafted one is better, because you dont really need that huge dmg for farming, and such a bow has a lot more mo space, for orbing ewd and other stuff you want, like leech or max dmg.

Thanks for the helpful answer - although too bad because I wanted to try some of the runewords :D

I guess I’ve been too influenced by the top bowa char guide regarding tantrum and petulant. Do you know other guides which recommend other non-tantrum approaches and gear setups?
