Max tiefling form. Get the shield with shadow summons. Get max block. Get some minion life/res enchantment gear as well. Shadows can be tanky. Only single point in ways. MO weapon with mana/life on attack.

Tiefling doesn't have morph (hat) since 2017 so the breakpoints are the same... but even the low defense is better than none esp. in melee so I'm not sure how would it wok - could be worth a try tho


Oh derp! Haven't played a caster sin in awhile!

Thanks :)

The question is though, how many skill points you have left to invest in ways.

SMaxing TFS, PB, Thiefling Form, the Ennead skill and probably ~9 points into blink/shadow refuge... you'll probably won't have many points left to put into the ways.

Yup. Shadows from shield give spell damage and boost your life from tiefling form even further.

These minions are ok for progressing, but farming with this is way too slow, recasting takes up too much time. They can't be tanky in ubers without heavy minion gear, even then they are questionable.

As for maxing ways vs 1pt, for spell damage. It is roughly 40-45% spell damage difference for 30 points invested.
Typical caster with good craft will have about 350-400% spell damage, so I don't think it is worth it. If it was 30 points for total spell damage to both, then maybe.

Yes they were useful for single player untwinked.

I tried using Tielfling Form max block setup. Duncraig farming is really smooth. Fauztineville kill speed can be improved with better gear. One thing I noticed is that with zero defense I was going into hit recovery / block animation very frequently especially in Fauztineville. So I had to increase FHR and FBR to 200 and 174 respectively.

It seems Tiefling form and max block is the way to go for this build. Bremmtown was quite easy to complete. For Kabraxis I used TFS only and finally managed to get the charm after a long fight including two deaths.

How is the Tiefling build going along?

I'm doing it right now and I have a lot of left over skill points. Granted I have yet to get the BRC skill, but I only really need 1 point in Vampiric Icon, right?

I have smax'd:
- TFS
- Perfect being
- Tiefling form
- Prismatic Cloak

Where else should my skill points go?

Also, I can't for the life of me even go through Torajan Jungles. Am I making a mistake by using a block build without min-max equipment?
