, 33% block. Am I doing anything wrong?


you surely need to access 125+ charms and upgrade your shield for higher block (75% for endgame)


Yeah that's sure but in the OP he said he reached 500k def with TUs only and he never got to do 125 ubers, which gave me a big question about my Necro
P/s: I looked again and found out that I put only 1pt in Deathlord instead of max like the guide. Is this skill now worth maximum investment?

as he OP stated on guide:
"Deathlord – Max. This makes us attack faster, adds block, gives flat STR and DEX, and most importantly gives us a buttload of flat defense. It is possible to achieve over 100k flat added defense! Insane."

Yeah I know, how about Rathma's chosen? deadly strike seems really good so I think it's worth more than 1 point

You do know these guides are not written in stone? I myself smaxed Rathma with great results, dmg is nearly pure physical so DS makes sense.

So DaggerNecro has been my most successful self-found character so far. But is it just me or a sacred Spirit Edge is so rare? Been farming a lot of places for a week, lots of sacred labrys/naginata/other class weapons... dropped but no spirit edge :(

RNG ain't your friend. Spirit Edges are equally as rare as naginatas, labrys, warp blades, maiden pikes, etc

Sometimes RNG just smiles upon me. 2 days ago I picked up my 1st sacred Spirit Edge. Today the second one was even an ETH one, can't imagine how lucky I am :mrgreen: Gonna save it for lv140 (if I ever level my Necro up to that stage) :mrgreen:
