You get it from Qarak's Will (preferred) or Sharkbaiter TU Ring mail

"Dexterity: Enough to have a decent attack rating."

How much is a decent attack rating?


i find 45-50k a good amount for late game.

Lategame 25k+

Midgame, just keep an eye out on your chance to hit mobs. You should be between 80-90% at the very least

How do you reach 25k+ attack rating? The listed gear provides little or no dex/ar. The build is great but I struggle to hit bosses which are not affected by ITD.

Thanks so much for the guide. Great job.

I am talking about mid game 105-120. Some gear options give huge boost to AR. Take only wormtail, it doubles my AR when I replace my TU heavy belt dreadfall for it. AR% on jewels and weapon MOs AR% go a long way as well some points in DeX doesn't hurt. I actually don't use lions paws but the TU4 zealot rush with AR% jewels and it boosts my AR alot while it also helps reaching my IAS breakpoints more easy.

I've changed my glove/boots to Geleb/Maffer, I think these 2 set pieces are really good for this type of build.
Even Wolf stance alone fills almost everything I want. Easy to cap IAS/FHR and juicy movement speed, and also I can have loyal dog friend.
The only thing I don't like is I have to use 'stay' button to shoot widowmaker with LEFT click. It's really clunky for me atm.

Other problem with me for now is AR.
I'm using
Strength Beyond Strength
Strength Beyond Strength
Gothic Plate (Sacred)

Defense: (7580 - 8361) to (9196 - 10143)
Required Strength: 614
Required Level: 100
1% Chance to cast level 36 Pyroblast on Striking
Adds 25-38 damage
150% Bonus to Attack Rating
+150% Damage to Demons
25% Life stolen per Hit
10% Deadly Strike
+(172 to 200)% Enhanced Defense
1% Reanimate as: Inarius
-5 to Light Radius
Socketed (6)
, put 100 points into dex, bunch of AR jewels but my AR is 20k.
Reaching 50k AR seems impossible for me.
Ouroboros
Ouroboros
Ring (Sacred)

Required Level: 110
+1 to All Skills
(-15 to 25)% to Strength
(-15 to 25)% to Dexterity
(-15 to 25)% to Energy
(-15 to 25)% to Vitality
maybe?
Have to figure out how I can fix it :D

I think xbow nec is top tier starter build. I've learned a lot about this game with it without much problem.

there is no need to reach 50k ar, 25k-30k ar is enough for endgame, which you can get with charms, few %ar jewells and some points in dex.

ooh relieved to hear that

I have one question, how can I get lightning dmg source to destroy kabraxis totem?
Since I have buriza I think I can handle almost them but have to clue about lightning one.
Should I get another weapon?

I used
Devil's Dance
Devil's Dance
Bolt Quiver (Sacred)

Required Level: 100
7% Chance to cast level 1 Stormpike on Striking
+(3 to 4) to Necromancer Skill Levels
+(3 to 4) to Amazon Skill Levels
+(3 to 4) to Druid Skill Levels
50% Attack Speed
-20% to Enemy Lightning Resistance
for light totem, was slow but did the job. You can just ask for help from someone with light damage, not a big deal, but yea all 5 totems are doable without respec, just with some gear changes, that quiver for light and buriza for cold, or hailstorm amulet if you dont have buriza.

Thanks for the thread! I started out with a crossbow necro but hit a brick wall just before 120, this guide gave me some inspiration and item ideas to get over that hurdle.

I'm just about to hit level 122, and looking to upgrade some of my gear. Gloves and Boots will probably be easiest I'm thinking since those are sacred crafts. I haven't found a crossbow to craft yet.

What stats are best to look for when doing crafting?
