Thx for all tips
You can still cheese this uber with merc. Before damage rework you had to use A2 merc to do this, now you can use A5 merc as well. It's just slightly more tricky in this patch (this uber was very easy for a bowazon).
Make sure neither you or your merc die before entering the arena so you don't have a gimped merc. Then you just move very slowly and gradually forward/sideways with the goal of making your merc move above you attracting uldy and company (he can facetank them forever). Even if you pull all aggro you can make them target your merc by running away, teleporting and staying behind your merc (might have to do this a few times). It's best to have zero FHR on him so when he gets swamped he stays in FHR lock (when this happens make sure you don't move far away so he doesn't teleport next to you). If you wanna tryhard it use
Cloak of Flames
on your merc as the proc could save you randomly. Also make sure your FHR isn't horrible so you don't get chain locked yourself while getting them ganged up on your merc.
The avatars themselves die extremely fast so this not a problem at all for a bowazon. If you can't kill them in 1-2 seconds flat with barrage your gear isn't good enough.
The other solution could be to craft a minion hp staff with magical shrines (staff can spawn up to 75% minion life by itself), MO FCR, socket minion life jewels and then summon fire elementals / erydem from switch. Haven't tried it though.
I will try Judgment day with merc, I usually dont use him, because I die so often, that I am bored to run buy him every time. Usually reanimates are my meatshield for non ubers runs.

For Duncraig, I totally forgot that blink has ministun, that could give me time to use atleast one barrage.

Kingdom of Shadows is more being anoying, after 20 minutes of trying I gave up, didnt even get to corridor to boss. Always run into big packs of zombies, one hit me and that give other zombies time to surround me
cowking wrote: Barrage bowazon needs a minimum of 40-45% DR endgame, I guess 30-35% could be ok for wyrmshot as your merc is taking way more heat and you kill at longer distance.
Keep in mind the less damage you take, the more effective leech becomes. Even though 20k life and 0% DR is the same as 10k life and 50% DR in terms of virtual HP, with 0% DR you need to leech 10k more HP to fill your pool.
For now I preffer barrage, because its higher single dps for ubers, buts its harder to farm bigger areas like TA. My gear probably sux, I use mix of crafted(bow), set, sacred and even some tiered uniques. I would love to dump Paragon for Curare, but without Paragon I drop to 4k life
I actually have about 60% of charms, but most of them was painfully slow to get.
I guess I will have to farm some better gear, but since guide is outdated, not sure where to go. Usually people link bunch of sacred uniques, but thats not really guide. I need some info, like where to aim, info 40-45% DR is atleast something. What about CB, LL and Dex, some goals to reach?
