ttad is useless since atm it only works on direct melee hits

also wouldn't life after kill MOs be better than leech ones for early game since you have low physical dmg?


So am I wasting my time rolling for a 5sk, doom proc, TTAD amulet for my tantrum pally? Should I leave the TTAD out if it doesnt apply from tantrum, as its not a direct melee?

Exactly, ignore TTAD.

Allright, so at least two of you confirm uselessness of TTAD for most chars. I will edit this info in my guides :)

I think kraken stance gets synergy from points in other stances, so more points in stances = more kraken dmg. you're missing out on some free dmg.

maybe less points in immortal/runemaster and put into snake for screen-wide slow with tslam and increased dmg from kraken. also, I'd get 1 point sor for the debuff.

edit: also items aren't showing for some reason. maybe too long post?

Actually its a YES. I am using crapy gears, rw amok for tantrum, no real proc, except locust on striking and toesie warmers after kill. No kraken yet, no strong rainbow damage, no 100 CB, not all sigs eaten, ect.. But tantrum rapes anything that comes at you and is weaker against enemies that stay in place or kite. Since Belial jumps on you - easy prey. Summon him far corner, die, rejoin and spam tantrum. Wait for his resistance to drop - pick up charm. I managed to get him under 10 deaths. With tankier char you can just spam some pots and wait for him to die.

Need an idea or tip about the safe spot in cows to kill BPR. Now i end up runining around and kiting endlesly. Haven't found any safe spot in any map, those runing cows seem to hit/pass through all walls, corners and kill.

Belial is quite easy with
The Endless Loop
The Endless Loop

Defense: (1739-2047) to (1805-2125)
Required Strength: 490
Required Level: 100
15% Chance to cast level 1 Teleport when you Take Damage
40% Increased Overall Speed
+(58 to 86)% Enhanced Defense
+(351 to 400) Maximum Stamina
Socketed (2)

-
Hellfire Plate


Hellfire Plate
Body Armor

'FiFiFiFiFiFi'
Runeword Level: 100
5% Chance to cast level 5 Blink when you Take Damage

Adds 245-317 fire damage
+(3 to 14) to Ancient Blood
+(171 to 200)% Enhanced Defense
+1000 Defense
Damage Reduced by 10%
would also work but its not worth farming just for the charm.

For BPR, stand against the wall like pictured below. Avoid the red areas as they are insta rip. If you aren't right against the wall BPR will knock you out of position and into the cow rush.

Heres a poor quality video.
