You said that I should kill it in 1 or 2 sec. well it isn't the case at all.


Which difficulty are you talking about here? Im guessing ur doing lc2, terror?
As all unique monsters he can spawn with random resistance and/or magic resistant, stone skin and so on, so you might wanna reroll

It's come to my attention that Volrath Challenge is no longer available?

Are there any early game alternatives? Or is it still in the game. I'm playing the most recent 1.1 build of Median XL, not Ultimative.
I'm enjoying corpse ice explosions. :twisted: :twisted:


mxl 1.1 = ultimative

last build of cMXL is 2012..

There's no Volrath anymore, earliest level challenge is LC1 (tran athulua)

lure most of mechanics away keep 1-2 at projector, dont summon any minions except familiar, and keep running so mechanics wont hit u

No, you should use forked lightning now. Also this build is significantly weaker since the latest patches

Forked lightning is by far superior than Tempest in this current patch.

Ort runes until you can start crafting Zod jewels with decent stats.

Anything that you are short of. I would suggest Zod-crafted jewels with 4% lightning spell damage, %energy, %FCR...

Hey everyone :3 Recently found out that there is alot of new content in Median XL (last played MXL Omega) and wanted to play it again.

Started with this build since i always wanted to do a Tempest Build (wasnt the name cascade back than? ;-| )

i'm now around lvl 111, just arrived in Destruction and wanted to start crafting my first Honorific gear since i could clear the content pretty okayish till now.

But now i see that the -Enemy Resistance Orbs dont exist anymore and also many skills were nerft (i didnt spec thunderstone cuz the dmg seems really bad ._.).

so my question is if this build still works well and i just need some different gear or is this build pretty much dead?

thanks for the answers^^

Created a complete character guide
Cold + lightning is still only build that will have reasonable defense (unless you put your hands on ssu chest that adds warp armor oskill).
Now you just use forked lighning from lightning tree and sphere (maxed for ice elementals life synergy) from cold tree. Abyss even at 1pt is more damage if you can aim it.
Sorc like that, with elementals + cold passive + warp armor can break 500k defense without much trouble (while using 2h staff).
Id just use TU + runewords, craft sacred staff asap with 12 skills and some pierce (before that use yul staff).

You can mix different tree, but any other combination of trees, your defense is very low and you pretty much are glass cannon. In ubers were cold/lightning can't use minions (because boss heals for example), it also becomes squishier, as you lose their 150tcd aura and dr from it.
