I guess it means making honorifics with flat DR but getting 90% resist seems tricky since there is no MO for that.

Kali glove would give +4% fire, Topspin +2% all. Apart from that only runewords with Shaad runes (I don't have any).

It would be useful to know how others are doing this?

P.S. Now I can upvote you Moasseman, I've done that. Thanks for the guide. :)
If you don't mind a suggestion, it might be useful to say a bit more about the ubers? Some are really tough to work out (Quov, Kabraxis, Ureh just 3 examples I found hard).

with a xbow - or is the idea to use another skill?

I missed Iceshell in the search of the TUs docs (I think I only searched for maxing 'all' max res I forgot about specific elements) - that could mean I can get enough for the other 3 from sockets. Cheers. I'll give it a try now.

Oh right I forgot :D

Well you could use a strong oskill like hailstorm (from an amulet) or something along those lines. But you don't need to. Maybe Xbow works well already without maxed resist. You probably just need some potions then. Well, good luck getting it done!

Tbh, you shouldnt have problems with Quov Tsin as an Xbow nec with max res and the kabraxis charm. U can hit him with widowmaker even if he isnt on the screen. Just run away when the deathbeam is targetting you.

You don't need any special gear for QT since you vastly outrange him and don't need to facetank the beam. Just throw Widow or two in his direction and then keep running and when you run out of space, run through the beam.

However, any maxres & absorb will let you take more hits from the beam should you make a mistake. (Personally I just used Lazarus' Chasuble with 2x each elemental pgem cause I had one of those laying around)

Thanks - I managed to get it done, but with a few deaths. Even with 120 DR and resists at 88/90/89 (plus 20% phys resist and 25% avoid) he still hurt a lot. The docs don't mention poison in his damages so I wonder if he realy does do poison and that's what was hurting?

Widowmaker doesn't seem to do damage without having line-of-sight on the target so he sometimes gets himself in awkward places where I have to get close to him and his beam.

Edit: I just got the Kabraxis charm. Another guide said not to have minions or merc up, that was the problem. :roll:

PATCH 1.1.0



I wrote some about the patch at the start of the guide. However, we don't know all the new skills/values yet, so it's impossible to make a perfectly accurate assession of the build in the new patch. It will still work fine, just leech got hurt a lot so you need to get more of it (prolly means Ber jewels instead of Tir jewels)
