Awesome. Ty for posting that. You're right, it does seem slow. I'm guessing the lack of any significant amount of CB is hurting here. I'm curious to see how much that time improves once you get the Yshari Charm.

For comparison:
*Sway of the Stars = 8.5s average
*Craft w/ 3x Vizjun's Ball Bearing and 6x Auhe = 7s average
*Craft w/ 3x Vizjun's Ball Bearing and 6x P-Rainbow Stones = 4.8s average
*Khany (Stormblast) = 2.9s average

These are with the Yshari Charm, though.


Hey, I changed my gear a bit to compensate for my lack of significant CB. My armor right now is a
Rebel (Xis)
Rebel
Body Armor

'ElXis'
Runeword Level: 121
Enhanced Weapon Damage +300%
+(202 to 230)% Enhanced Defense
+300 to Strength
+300 to Dexterity
-75 to Vitality
-75 to Energy
All Resists +(101 to 150)%
+1 to Light Radius
in an Eth Ceremonial armor while my boots is
Epicenter (Xis)
Epicenter
Boots

'IthXis'
Runeword Level: 121
100% Chance to cast level 33 Tremor when you Die
(0.125 per level)% Chance of Crushing Blow (Based on Character Level)
+(203 to 231)% Enhanced Defense
Increase Maximum Life (31 to 40)%
in an Eth Greaves. I also replaced one of my rings with
Akarat's Nails
Akarat's Nails
Ring (Sacred)

Required Level: 100
10% Chance to cast level 2 Crucify on Melee Attack
8% Chance of Crushing Blow
10% Chance of Open Wounds
Enhanced Weapon Damage +150%
Drain Life -250

for the CB and EWD.

I tried testing it on dest Duriel again and came with an average of 5 seconds per kill. I think that's a huge improvement so I'll be sticking with this variation of end game gear :D

Btw this was done without Yshari charm, I just got the full set yesterday and I'm still working on Valthek. Still trying to figure out how to beat him fast, since it took me around 2 hours to get him down to 50% hp and then my internet went nuts qq.


I can explain Valthek to you later on if still needed

I would really appreciate that. It feels dumb running around randomly, killing godsmen and just hoping for Valthek to jump on me WITHOUT summoning immediately so I have just enough time to hit him. It takes way too long, and RNG isn't very nice.

I don't have a character set up currently to run through to the boss, nor do I have the set, but if someone can get me there and lend me the set, I can try to make a short video of it.

If you run in a circle around him without going too far away then he won't teleport and only spams fire nova. So you just keep 1 guard alive and spin around.
