Also, I can't see how Hades Gate ever gets to be spammable - even with Bloodbath up it has a 5 second cd?


It's been quite long since I leveled a phy naginata, It might be that the tu list and stats need are a bit different now. Elemental doesn't need dex as much so is much freer in that aspect and can just take the needed strenght, but phy get lots of damage from laserblade and dex scaling. So I'm not sure how it should be done now, especially with toorcs req being highened again.
Did you put points in momentum? That's needed to spam Hades Gate. It's likely that you'll unlock it later.

Apologies, I was being dense with the second question - I was actually looking in the wrong place for the upgrade skill. Doh.


Good to know that I'm not missing anything on the strength thing. And I hadn't noticed the Toorc's thing, thanks, I'll have to look at glove options again then.

can be easily tiered to your level since it has Dex req… use 5x Strength MO on this. The other armors should just be T3 until you have some charms / signets. You can use -req MOs and jewels to bring one down, then also MO that for strength to enable the rest.
The phys build starts feeling pretty weak by mid Hell though with T4 Nagi, you’ll need a good craft, or Fryst… or just switch to ele ;)

Hey man, I seem to have hit a bit of a wall with some of the 125 ubers specifically Spirit World and Nymir's Light

I actually was using a fryustgard setup but got lucky and got the full serpent set and bought a sots so decided to try the psn build. is my damage just too low for these ubers or is this just me not playing the uberquests right? here is my character https://tsw.vn.cz/char/CasualAssassin

thanks!

edit: right now im doing laz attempts so my gear might look weird, also cant you not use 1pt incineration trap to clear toems now without disabling all other skills because subterfuge is a prerequisite?

I’ve never used the set, personally. Do you have 165+ psn pierce?

Poison is pretty good against Giuya specifically, because it continues to damage it even when it drops one of those things on the ground. The nagi set bonus doesn’t look amazing to me… you might be better off with the full Wyrd set (belt + boots) for the extra 25 psn pierce.

Attana Khan has a ton of life so you need to be doing very good damage.

Personally I’ve only played with Zular Khans so maybe someone else can chime in with better insight :)

PS - the poison build is suggested in the OP as a farming build only, not for bossing

I'm no expert but one thing is that black ice will never be especially amazing damage, but there's many improvements you can do

-I recommand you check the set up willan did some time ago for gear ideas, it seems way better : viewtopic.php?f=6&t=76781
-Cold blood on swap for banish
-you seem pretty low on attack rating
-Obviously biggest point ; Black ice start to shine after many umos, especially periapt of life. need more. Farnhams on the weapon probably were a mistake too, especially since you're low on ar. For more regen solitudes are the way to go
-Anathema can be used with broadside for a bit more ied
-Specialization for -1s cd broadside will help damage

Lynd! I love your guide, and the Boss/Dungeon section has been a very good quick reference to ensure I have correct resists, etc.

However, I suggest including something about Mefis (Nephalem's Sacrifice quest) in your Boss/Dungeons section.

I learned the hard way in HC, that Mefis has an attack which instantly removes >15k life even with 90% cold resist, maxed Prismatic Cloak, etc. It's a 1-hit KO to almost every character. My character with 60 hours of gameplay, full 15,224 HP, was instantly killed by Mefis without any sort of visual or audio cue

► Video of my HC char being erased by Mefis


► Video of my fully charmed 90 res lvl 150 Assassin testing Mefis



I just added the info to the HC Tips page.
