Your gear could probably be optimized but I'm pretty sure your problem is execution and not numbers. The only number problem i noticed, is that your block rate is kinda low but that is probably not really relevant for Kab. I suggest you either elaborate on what you think is wrong or specifically try to look through videos of Kab kills to get a more nuanced idea about how people do him. He can be an annoying boss, especially with shit gear but you should have the damage for a somewhat moderately fast kill.

Edit: Ohhh yea, mandatory mention of eating 400 signets. Alternatively, try to raise max poison and fire resistances.

1. I feel that my dmg low
2. trap rat can stop doing any under attack. Very low fhr animation (or i dnt known what it). I up to 90, but problem here
3. I cant find video with trap rat and bosses.
4. LOL. This guy cant farm nih for sigs - hi dyed BECAUSE ONLY 4 target and cant rush like bear/pal etc.

It's not just karabxis - any boss, who can move fast seems me impossible with VERY LOW traprat atack animation and machanic/ at current lv.


1: Maybe it is, you have several SUs that would normally be beyond midgame items but I didn't go through every single item to see if you can squeeze out 1% more damage. Plenty of builds can do Kab with worse gear than what you have.

2: You have the same fpa (6) as my unholy caster but Kabraxis is very punishing if done incorrectly.
3: Honestly any kill video except summoner/turret, will give pointers as to what to do. 1: Stay out of whirlpool (swirling thing), 2: don't run too far away or he will jump on you, 3: keep moving to dodge balefire and the poison flamestrike, 4: Only do as many attacks as you think you can get away with before moving again, probably no more than 3-4 attacks or balefire will hit you.

This guy plays every season, without being a super tryhard. I know this specific kill is with a turret build but you can go back through his previous characters and find something that is more close to trap rat.


4: You're most likely doing something wrong if Nihlathak is giving you serious issues but what do I know.

About Kab... I killed him with these: https://tsw.vn.cz/acc/char.php?name=RattyX
Yes, it was slow and i got several rips but tips are: never stop moving ofc, use quill storm sometimes to get rid of summoned skeles.... and harvesters. If they have at least 20k hp - you can keep 2-3 of them summoned to distract Kab (and they're overall sometimes useful vefore you get uber-top-gear to melt everything in less than second) - they're pretty tanky (even tho in usual gameplay they're stupid af) and giving SO MUCH NEEDED movespeed 'cause by default rat ms is soooooo slow that you won't be able to avoid even default balefire.

PS: Oh! And pots... you need to drink pots nearly all the time. TP back to town when tou running out of them (1 or 2 row left). BEFORE re-entering arena - re-summon harvesters and, most important - drink pot before enetering tp. Why? Because once you appear on arena - Kab will instantly tp on you most of times with knockback and some other shit like punisher barrage, balefire or even flamestrike.

Trap rat using only IAS and FHR - no reason to put block speed.

From what I understand, we don’t put block speed? Why are most rats aiming for high block chance and get spiked shield with +2-3 block chance then? Last season i reached around 65% block. Never really witnessed that he really block cause of the morph but adjust me if im wrong.

I meant he using hit recovery animation (and faster hit recovery stat) for block so faster block rate doing nothing at all.

Excellent--glad the advice we gave you helped out.
I still have a spiked shield you can have if you're playing on ladder online. lmk
