Achilles

The True Path to Immortality



About:
This guide is a collaboration between TgTalcon and myself. We have spent countless hours theory crafting on how to make this build the best that it can possibly be. This guide is still a work in progress, Over the next couple of days I plan to include videos / streamed walkthroughs of the more difficult ubers as well as showcase some of the build's capabilities in farming areas quickly.
Be sure to check us both out on Twitch for streams and updates:

Build Explained:
[Disclamer] This is an endgame build. I would not suggest playing it as a brand new player. Currently it is very expensive to acquire the necessary endgame gear as it's highly in demand. (over 2000 Trade Gold) although it is certainly viable in single player games if you want to settle for mid-game gear.

This build runs on 16 second timers, it's a rhythm you will acquire if you choose to play this build.
You must continually cast Demiurge and Sacred Armor every 16 seconds, they will both keep your gear equipped and keep you alive. Vindicate and Rapture are useful to keep up as well for extra regen and increased speeds. Our only "Achilles' Heel" if you will is not being buffed.

Besides the buffs, it's very simple to play. You just run around and your vessels do all of the work. Once you have acquired an
Oris' Herald


Oris' Herald
Sceptres

'MaMaMaMaMaMa'
Runeword Level: 100
+(0 to 4) to All Skills
50% Cast Speed
Adds 300-600 magic damage
+(25 to 35)% to Physical/Magic Spell Damage
+(23 to 46) to Magic Missiles
30% to Energy
+1000 Defense
Physical Resist 15%
you can incorporate that into the mix for bosses just stand in range of them and spam Magic Missile when opportune to do so and they will just melt.

This build with full endgame gear is capable of farming 8 player Duncraig, Fautzinville, Bremmtown, Triune, Vizjun, Teganze completely solo, And is able to complete most uber quests with ease. With mid-game gear you shouldn't have a problem doing all of the above in single player games, althought expect ubers to be much more challenging.

Currently with endgame gear I am extremely tanky with Vindicate + Sacred Armor + Apple and a Healing Potion active I'm at ~7500 Life Regen/sec and am nearly immortal, add in an Angiris star for Vessel leech and I can tank any 8 player game area without breaking a sweat.

Here is my current damage with listed endgame gear + all charms except for Samael:

It's definitely an option, if you can get TU4 with +4 skills it may edge it out with damage though, I would have to test. I plan to compile more options for leveling, perhaps I might experiment with a completely different spec until you can reach mid game gearing options, I was thinking holy paladin may be a bit smoother in hell and acquiring early charms.

may be an great early game item, cause it actually gives phys Spell Damage and has a little more room for MOs. I think the res problem can be solved by socketables and MOs while maintaining a higher damage output than

yes both are viable options, and yea I intend to do a full charm run tomorrow night and stream it, most charms 105-125 and post highlights here.
should give people a good idea of the build's capabilities, will probably mule every charm I have beforehand to make things more interesting :)
