Xbow Necromancer gameplay videos by Jaxon



Note: The gear/skills are by far not the best you can use as a xBow necro. It just shows how i did all the Ubers in the videos with the gear I had at that time. (i was still experimenting)
There are also Proc-Farming videos with gear in the Fauzt video + My NotArmory link for my current setup (which is a 650+ mf farm setup, able to do everything in p8; fauzt p8 is doable but not really quick with that setup).



Very good single target killer with decent overall farmspeed

General Gameplay: Buff with Burning Veil + Bloodlust, Summon Minions if needed, spam WIdow Maker.


Build:


Stats: Every point into Strenght

Skills:

There are far better Options in lots of slots for my equipment, but I didn't find them yet and all the content works fine with it.

Did all the REQ 130 Ubers. Uldy is easy with the gear shown above. For Laz I have used a waepon/shield and went for max block, thus i had to use a belladonna to pump in a lot of dex to reach that. Void is doable without reskillung but I would suggest to get a lot of HP and if possible some magical resist. It also won't hurt if you can do it with a second person on realm.

This is just a Showcase and not a guide, but I am willing to answer question regarding my progression or anything! Please don't write me via PM but discuss it here. Other people might have the same questions and I will only have to answer them once!

I easily farm k3k (almost too easy imho) with following tier uniques:

Weapon - TU Trebuchet (mo with mana steal + attack rating)
Helm - TU Mask
Armor - TU Chain mail
Belt - TU light belt
Gloves - TU chain gloves
Boots - TU light plated boots
Quiver - random ones - mo with regenerate mana + resists
rings/ammy - random ones- mo with regenerate mana + resists
Sockets - gems until max resists + attack rating into weapon

With above gear, ur life goes from 0 to 100% in 1 sec per widowmaker usually + a huge army of reanimates to tank for u

Rings are not really a good choice for this build. didn't bother to change them

https://tsw.vn.cz/acc/char.php?name=Jaxon thats my current gear. most of the HP comes from charms + jewels. Whenever i craft a jewel i am for 40+HP and %str as an addition to MF. running 638 MF currently with this setup. Buffed with a flayer i have 19.5k hp roughly. With this setup, especially with adrenaline rush, a full dunc clear, including the way to dunc, takes 5 mins. some 80% fauzt clear with all the 5 bosses takes around 4-5 min. p8 dunc is easy and the speed is the same. fauzt is a little bit slower but still doable.

Hey.
You can make a video according to your skills and talents.
I understand English poorly, so it’s easier through this video, and I’m thinking of everything too.
Thank you for your work.

Hey. In fact I was struggling a little bit before. In Mid game (entering Hell, starting to collect charms), I have used the Jah RW with ITD but it felt quite weak because of the low damage. That forced me to make a crafted xbow. I have used weird shrines and aimed for at least something like 350-400 damage + some okayish stats like necroskills, strenght, etc. To make it work I have made Ber crafted AR jewels. I even put some points into Dex.
After a while I have tried to use Force of Mind RW (6x Magic Rune in necro crossbows). The damage started to be really good but the hit chance, especially on bosses, was quite bad. But that was not a big deal because of the high multihitting mechanic of widow maker. It shoots one more bolt per skillpoint. On the other hand it gets a ridiculous mana cost to cast. I had to balance the skill levels of the skill/AR with Sockets and MO on the weapon and get enough ml to make it work sufficiently.

Another possibility would be to take a TU4 xbow and try to lottery it with the legacy of blood charm. It is quite easy to get with some summons even if you are undergeared.

Later on I have tried all the SU xbows. There are some nice other possibilies for the xbow necromancer build using fire procs/fire damage/-enemy fire res. I tried to stick to Physical damage, thus started to stack strenght as much as possible. Using the Force of Mind RW while stacking strenght led to quite nice damage numbers, but the JahXis just felt better and a lot quicker in killing. I could also replace everything that I used to stack AR and stack more strenght.

I hope that gave some insight. Happy you guys like it

Hey. The ubers in the videos are Hard/Very Hard ones. They are all doable in HC, but I would not recommend to do some of them like Startled Witch and Zorun Tzin. There are a lot less one-hit mechanics in Sigma. In comparison to the other versions this one is in fact more HC friendly! You do not need to get all the charms to be super good. My necro has a quite high survivability, which makes me think it could be a decent HC build, but there are safer builds to play HC.
