Rare ones are actually quite scarce, but magic/white ones are pretty common. Get one of these and take it to Charsi for imbue.

Wow, thanks a lot! forgot that you could turn white items into rares with her :roll:

How are people getting on with labs? I'm only up to Tier 6 at the moment (only casually run a few so far) but the corrupted barbs really destroy me, which will be problematic for lockouts. Any strategies for dealing with them?

Have been using an Abjurer merc for Fautz up until now (7min runs - quite pleased with that) but should I switch over to A2 for more tankiness in labs? Guess as I have Bloodlust already I should go with the one who has Chronofield - or is A5 merc going to work better with MOTW?

Awesome guide, it helped me a lot!

Unfortunately, not from what I've seen. I tried to make it work using a Kraken Stance craft with loads of pierce, dex and Life-after-Each-Kills, but the dmg and sustain simply isn't there. I suspect you'd need loads of very rare items to just have it be on par with a basic physical bow build.


I tried Athulua's Wrath and I have to say it is not bad at all. The thing about elemental is that you do consistent damage to all enemies regardless of resistances. Doing Fautz with your craft Reflex is pretty painful until you do enough damage to kill Necrobots easily (which I have not been able to achieve yet at lvl 136). With Athulua's Wrath it is MUCH easier to deal with the Necrobots, and I don't even have specialized gear for it. You are right that the life leach is pretty weak with an elemental bow, though. May be worth mentioning so people don't feel pigeon-holed into a phys build!

Why does he puts perfect skulls (10% enhanced damage) in the bow instead of JAH Runes (15% enhanced damage) ?

Hey! New to Median XL and I'm just wondering:

As I'm tiering up my bow it's staying at 1 socket throughout.. I'm currently at TU4 and the guide says to fill the bow with perfect skulls. I don't have any sockets to put perfect skulls in however. Am I doing something wrong?

So that is the reason why Tran Athulua is so crowded with bowzons!

TUs should roll with max sockets for its base level. Are you definitely using the tiered unique and not a superior/magic/rare reflex bow?
