Hello.

I would like to craft rare amulet with doom for my WDM build but it is disabled for this season. Any other options?
You cant craft rings/amulets with shrines right?

Doom is useless anyway. Just try to get 3-5 +skills and maybe some nice -fire res.

Hello Stealthmaster.

I am at Judgement Day stage. I have really hard times trying to beat that chellange. I respeced as you suggested, crafted Crucible Crossbow.

I pop sacrifices, then totem, then rathmas, then dark summon, then quickly move from summoning spot, start shooting and my HP starts to drop very fast while avatars are trying to kill totem. Even if I manage to survive till first boss, he one shoots me. Is there something I am missing here?

Cheers.

There are few important moments here:

1. You must have enabled sound when doing this uber. Also the volume has to be efficient for you to recognise avatar's spawning moment;
2. You must have sufficient damage from Voodoo Shot to be able to one-shot an avatar till he becomes invulnerable. If your min. damage is below 10k, you'll most likely fail in this quest. Max damage should be about 20k iirc;
3. :!: When an avatar spawns you'll have to quickly step back to avoid homing Psicrown missiles. If you don't have magic resists against Tremor (screen shaking), you'll most likely be with ~5% hp when an avatar casts Psicrown. If you don't make a backstep it will lead to a quick death of your char;
4. If you failed to kill an avatar and he ended up with a little hp and a glowing circle around him, remake the game.

Thanks for response.

I will try again with your instructions.

I just have one more question. Is it normal that I take damage somehow while those white barb avatars are hitting the totem? I am <20% of HP all the time till I get oneshoted by The Avatar.

Cheers.

They cast Tremor which reduces your current life by percentage (it has big area of effect). It is not Tremor that kills you but Psicrown from a spawned avatar which deals sufficient damage to kill a char with low hp.

Hint: you can survive even with ~100 hp left as long as you kill an avatar and dodge Psicrown. Note that if he casts Psicrown and then dies the spell will still be able to collide with you so keep your eyes open.

Much ablige Sir Stealthmaster.

I wish I could spot things as you do :).

Is there a possibility to complete this chellange with melee spec?

Cheers.

You can complete JDay uber with melee spec just to get a charm with luring dark edyrem away from an avatar. Much easier to do online because of rejoining feature so you won't need to make a TP in Jail lvl 3.
