If you play the physical starter version LL is BIG and same goes for the fire setup that has a bit of physical damage. But remember LL does not work on bosses :mrgreen:

Classic mistake :oops:

First rule of Palazon is dont ever look at the in game numbers. What you want to look at is page 2 of D2stats. If you play physical build you want to look at the physical damage number and if your playing one of the elemental variations you want to take a look at the flat elemental damage numbers.

Also you did the classic mistake of swapping over to the build way way to early before you had the right gear and charms (yes base stats are important for this build no matter what variation you are playing)

About the so called "no weapon" = more damage.. this is a know thing for a long long time and sadly again the ingame damage information cant be used for anything at all :mrgreen:

It's actually correct here.

Longsword has 11% EWD per 100 strength.

Fists are hardcoded to have 100% EWD per 100 strength. With enough added flat, punchbuild is legitimately more damage.

Hi, really nice guide.

and curious about what is the difference between dex stacking and str stacking palazon.

I know its Physic and Elemental dmg but are there big gaps between physic and elemental?

actually i dont really prefer ele build (no leech) but if the ele one is much better than physic, i will consider to choose ele one lol

You "kinda" answered your own question :) but to the part about the so called GAP between the different variation of the build the elemental builds are more of a later endgame focus and in general elemental build is more overall damage. Sins Consecration got changed the gap is not as B I G and if you really want to I think if you invest in some expensive gear and stack A LOT of DS the physical version can do some amazing stuff.

I think this season I hit around 24K max damage on page 2 of D2stats before I swapped over to adju fire/str variation.

Overall best version of the palazon build would be
Azurewrath
Azurewrath
Crystal Sword (Sacred)

Required Level: 100

1020
Item Level: 130
Innate Cold Damage:

Max Life gained per point of Vitality reduced by 0.9

-100% to Enemy Cold Resistance
+2 to Remorseless Winter
Slow Target 25%
Maximum Cold Resist +10%
Physical Resist 10%
100% Bonus to Defense

Socketed (6)
variation.

Hey loving the build quick question I'm not too familiar with the game so for a phys variant what pieces of gear should I strive for after I have what you put in your guide? Or is that the best of the best for me?
