Please note that it's for physical / primarily physical build. For fire there might be better options.

Looking for some input on my xbow necro - looking for some gear suggestions and improvements on skill points. Just finished the Ascendant Riftwalker and am looking at taking a run at some Labs.

It is worth mentioning that xbow necro is not suitable for high level lab because you will lose too much damage if you want to get 90 fire/cold/light res.

When I realized how much UMO this character needs, I just give up. Too much for a character who will never farm high lab.

Disappointing to see how many UMOs I need to try and really push this character. I'll still keep pushing through though. Was able to get through Lab 3 without too much difficulty.

Do you guys think Rathma's Chosen is a better choice over Jinn, since i'm using mostly Widowmaker?

If you don't have problems with ias, then Jinn can be a good solution. Practice shows that 345 ias is very difficult to get without Rathma.

Arrogance is something I was considering picking up when I accumulate enough TG. Going to give it a shot.

ummm, interesting choices, but... My nec can go up to lab8 (i cleaned lab7 several times and still can't find stone for next level) and has literally 0 UMO's or unique jewels. Even gear is not finished, far from that.
No need to go expensive :D
