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.

in the tests i've done yesterday , for mid game i don't see how players with low experience can stay alive long enough without Paragon . without it , at about 4-5k hp , max block and high resistances are just not enough . in terror Fauztinville it gets 1-shot or 2-shot since she has to go in melee range in order to fight ... so , for mid game , untill all extra signets are eaten and end game gear is accessible , it will go for Paragon instead of Curare (that's only viable in end game) . will do extra tests today when i'll return home from work .

I'd like to see this build setup you use. Looking forward to it.
