Currently at lvl 127 I have maxed widow/dragonfire/death ward/embalming and 1 pointed famine/talon's hold/Rathma's Chosen... with leftover points in Death Pact for added defense. Gear wise, I'm rockin royal circelt/arathas oracle/hwanins or crafted stinger/Larzuk quiver/ erawan plate mail (soon to be Rebel"Xis")/truce/geleb/maffer/ripstar/and rare ring....How can I improve survivabilty from here?


Since ur def is to low to tank on ur own, summon anything at the edge of the screen ahead of u and just kill from distance. Repeat after every new screen.

made an xbow necro today. got him to 113 right now, currently sitting in achilios set, teganze pendant, and random rings. currently waiting for umos to sell so i can afford to properly gear him. essentially so far everything was a piece of cake up until cows, where for the first time i cant really solo it on more than p1. my sheet dps is about 4k, 7k life, like 6k AR (disgusting ik)....was really enjoying it up until this point but now the AR is killing me til i can properly gear.


why is hwanins listed as for farming and all the others only suggested for single target?

Because of the 4% proc which is scaling based of the first crowsbow skill .

I recommend using athulua amulet. Good roll gives over 200% ar plus 2 skills and 20 uninterruptable atk, some ias and lots of MO space. I use it still at 126 with almost full BiS gear. And in my opinion using runewords like erawan and crafted gear is better than xbow set.

oh no doubt. the only reason im using achilios at all is because i had a full set just sitting around and i made the toon today. once my auctions end i should have enough to have a good chunk of the recommended endgame gear.

as far as AR goes right now im strongly considering using metalhead so i dont have to worry about it at all.

Just so you know, ignore target defense doesnt work on bosses.

when trying to craft larzuks bandolier, can i do the 1ac upgrade on a different quiver or will that just continue to give me the same one?
