for farming so I’m not constantly chugging mana pots. Unfortunately that’s significantly hurt my clear speed.

And i assume the best mo's for the rest of the set are Fire Spell damage% and MF/Vitality right ?

For rare rings i went for fire spell damage, flat phys reduction and defense. what you guys think ?
I was think if it would be better to go for poison lenght reduced instead of defense, but i'm not quite sure.

thanks for the excelent guide =)


Mana on melee attack. You dont have enough psychical weapon damage for % leech to work. For rings id try for energy factor and fire damage first. If you put fire damage and mf mos on the set you end up with lvl 120 req already. Id propably put rest in flat vita to capitalize on sets 40% to vita bonus


sorry, but how do i mo' rings with energy factor ? is it possible now ? i tried but didnt succeed. is it a UMO ?

Interesting setup you have there. Just out of curiosity, did you find most of your items or bought them? Coz I'm struggling with gear, haven't found Malthael set yet, not to mention other notable SU's. I know, I don't have the time to play as 6-7 years ago (2 kids atm) but still.

And a side note, I think AR is really an issue, because if you lack this stat you won't benefit from life on hit and mana on hit. How do you guys counter this issue?

Most of it was bought. The Rings, Shield, Boots and Gloves were farmed. However all the TG that went into the gear was made from the character at the beginning of the ladder.

Nice, ty.
Am I the only one experiencing mana issues? Dunno if it's because of the AR, but it seems that 200 mana on hit from wep doesn't compensate the amount I'm using for Bloodthorns.

Having the same issue. I’ve got a feeling it has something to do with the fact that blood thorns costs 300+ mana and my char only receives 200 on hit ;-|

Basically - do not level blood thorns past from 200ish mana per hit, right? Mana leech for this char is meh anyway, duet to lack of phys dmg ?

Everyone keeps talking about AR with blood thorns, but for me it doesn't show an attack rating for blood thorns. Doesn't that mean its not effected by AR? Or is it bugged?
