at the beginning it tells u to use leather gloves, boots etc (lowest str requirement) and use eerie shrine.

Also any sorc casters out there? Since Thunderstone got nerfed what are u using for single target dmg?


Tried lightning and it is shit AF, no damage at all, cold does not seem to have that much damage as well.

Poison / ice seem to be alright. Poison for damage, ice for some defense and meat shield.

Haven't tried fire.


Forked Lightning is amazing; What poison skills did u max, what cold skills did u max?

Possibly, havent tried it, whot about boss killing? Do they melt ?

Lorenado / vengeful power / snow queen

The rest i guess depending on play style. More elemental hp ? More cold damage?

Yet even if invested in elemental hp they die rather quickly, so not sure about that.

I didnt see anywhere in the guide the stats we were supposed to get at lvl 60, 90 and 120.

How many stats points do i have to put in Strength, Dexterity, Vitality and Energy at those levels?

How many bonus points the gear you recommended will give me?

Is the guide up to date for version 2017?

Thank you!

"Stats:
We mainly want to invest points into strength and dexterity to be able to wear gear. Right now energy doesn't give us that much of a boost but we can put all leftovers in energy."

No it's not updated for current patch. Check the above comments for things other players have done for the current patch.

Much better. The only good point Tempest has now is that it homes on targets, but forked lightning can sweep areas nicely. Why need to home of targets with 8/9 tempest bolts when you can cast forked lightning and it clears every trash monster thats not lightning immune in front of you with 1 or 2 casts?
