When will there be a good batstrike build? I tried it without changing any items, after like 3 min I had 25 (max!) bats. With shadows they survived pretty long in the cow level and killed easily, then you can simply support them with more batstrikes, the nova has 150 yard range, if there was an item with like 25% chance to cast that nova on melee attack it would be incredibly good but if you just cast it yourself you have pretty much the same result and that result is freaking fast if you dedicate it a bit I call it melee claw sin, but adding 25 bats, 15 shadows and maybe some sinners (

I am sure it's even better than just using the nova.

Is this accurate? I know it lists a large range, but I've chased it down a few times and it never seemed to go more than 2-3 screens.

How many yards is a screen? Yes 3 screens max and the projectiles are scattered so they don't hit much but in the first 1.5 screens they wreak havoc.

Yea, 150 yard range is like 8-10 screens or so. haha, that's why I was unsure. That or the nova continues to travel the extra screens past 2-3, but the animation becomes invisible, similar to if someone is fighting BPR, and you're a couple screens away while he uses his stampede, so when you run near, you don't see the stampede, but still die from it?

if you refer to a pure summoner assassin with bats + other summons/full summoner gear/summoner gameplay , i won't do it .

the hybrid in the compilation breaks more than enough fingers already .

also , you only need 1 or 2 shadows around for their aura , no point having more around

I am not taking about a pure summoner but the weapon switching for ice elementals is stupid. If I go

Weapon: Judge or Hail
Belt: Nero
Boots: Craton (Xis)
Gloves: Abandon Shrine crafted with ctc Stormblast

I can easily clear dunc/fautz now I am thinking about adding goetia and that helmet to get a nice bat army that should make it even faster/easier.

well nobody forces you to use them . they are not a "must have" , the build works fine enough without switching for ice elementals . they come just as an "extra bonus" , they are not crucial for the build

To note, in my experience, the ice elementals oskill doesn't give the DR/Def aura. I tried with.. I think

^ I can concur that. And switching makes them disappear after awhile.
