Thank you very much.

it pleased me to look at your bowzon. to look at the charms and your entire spec and choice of items, it shows that you've been following the guide :) well done friend

that said, you play on tsw so you have access to goblins, which can drop 30fcr amulet enchants. it is no longer needed to get 22speeds on the wormhole charm. i chose not to mention it in the guide because i want it to apply to both online and sp players, not just online.

unfortunately i do not have a lot of battle-tested advice to give you because high labs, samael and deimoss is exactly the content i havent covered/got to yet. those 3 are the only content in the game that requires a heavy time investment on your character (especially if you play SSF where you cant really play a UMO/relic build). having a busy lifestyle, its been hard to find the time to dive into that content.

a couple of posts back i gave generic lab advice, so i think it might be worth a read. here it is again:

Wulf wrote:well for 11+ labs, 90 max res and 260 stacked res is recommended.

  • id make sure ALL of your charms are perfect or near perfect. for instance:
    • full dex wormhole
    • the obvious capped max res witch/kab charms
    • 60aa+ umbraru treasure
    • sleep charm upgraded with triune trophy (awakened with a 2nd triune trophy if youre nuts)
    • 90-95% roll astro/belial/bremmtown charms
    • belial/judgment/vizjun trophy in their respective charms
    • capped resistance charms such as baal/yshari/laz/iotss/baal trophy.

  • lotteried +2 max res unique amulet is pretty mandatory.

    5% Reanimate as: Searing Vermin
    is good due to its fcr and being a very common, but it can be any ammy as long as you get +2 max res. if you slap a fcr enchant on it, the 80fcr and the other 45 from charms makes you reach the 117 breakpoint, meaning no other fcr from gear needed.

  • trophied laz charm is also very useful.

    Witchhunter's Attire
    (Assassin Claw Set)
    set is a very good alternative. id even go as to say its better due to the stacked resist and 10%dex. note: i did a couple of mid labs and i found that trinity arrow wasnt bad at all even with little to not rainbow pierce from equipment. my point being that the pierce from rainbow maiden isnt that bad at all.

    with 40ms and 1pr. the extra 4pgem in it gives you 1-2k hp while remaining identical in dmg. leech isnt super useful in labs. do not get baited into using an aban craft or the tu light plated boots; spur will always beat them. i havent tested

    though, so im unsure how they compare (ewd is excessively good on bowzon).

  • hellfire aura helm enchant gives you +3 max fire res.

  • i also highly recommend having a super tanky merc that can peel for you. i havent delved into high labs yet, but the shapeshifter i currently have is very useful for tier8-10 labs. cube has a good merc guide, id just opt for a LOT of hp% and max resist (aim for 30k+ life / 85+ max res / 260 stacked res / 25% slow target).

    : ive seen some people use them with relative success in labs, but i personally think theyre traps. the askar has lower base dmg than a craft with ed-min-max (also rapid wyrm drains your mana super fast, meaning you cant spam it anyways), and the max res from the set items could simply be replaced by 2 pgems while wearing a better armor slot (for instance, dex-min-max crafted gloves/

full of resist gems. Adds like 1.2k health, nice.

18.5K Health, 90 max res, 260+ all resists, all speeds capped, all charms but last 3 and most trophies.

All I can say is damage is there but can't sustain health. You definitely need the Shapeshifter from NotCube's guide geared to the teeth, if you want to have a shot.

Nice guide, really enjoying it.
Watched a couple of your uber videos, just noticed your phalanx dmg around 19k.
Mine is about 11k, how am I missing so much dmg?
Stats and gear is actually the same, just got the hratlis instead of QA.

Thank you! I was wondering the same. In some videos I watched I compared my gear and noticed the Dex Dmg bonus on weapons is about half what it used to be.

Hi,
thanks for the guide! I have just a quick (and propably noob) question: Why do I want so many points in Trinity Arrow? It looks like anything past level 6 is just increasing the mana cost or am I misreading the description somehow?
Thanks in advance :)

Read the description for wyrmshot, more specifically its skill synergies.
