Yeah, to me, Abjurer has so much more potential simply because of Superbeast. His skills have no CD, they're essentially procs, so having 4 target point singularities, and the screen covered in lightning novas and lightning waffles, is pure eyecandy. Not only that, but his DPS in superbeast is just insane. Even with mediocre gear, he's strong. But if you stack enough buff duration for almost permabeast, it's damn well gamebreaking.

Not only that, but those mages are pro af at skillswitching haha, zero human error. They can bust out some crazy multi-element spell barrages.

I usually stick to act 4 mercs - they never dissappointed

Good job of doing videos of how to use a merc!

I use A3 Bloodmage most of the time because he's easy to gear (usually just blessed honorific), quite strong and I like his gift of inner fire (playing HC)

Last ladder I used A1 Ranger (double mo'd shockwave, blessed honorific gear/few crafts) for my barb summoner and she was quite a beast with 316% PSD (+240% from protector's bloodlust) / -114% EPR and 50% DR from bear stance

does buff duration still apply to superbeast or was that changed in some patch?

Real superbeast always has 300 seconds duration (ignores %buff duration), fake superbeast like the procs and the thing the merc do have a much lower duration (10s)

Procs and the merc skill are 10sec, though I dunno if buff duration applies to merc superbeast or not.. Would seem a little bugged if it did.

Oh it absolutely does.

It's essentially just an altered version of the skill, and I doubt anyone changed it. But yes, without a shred of doubt, it benefits from buff duration.

Fire Rogue video posted.

A little laggy, but she worked out okay. Will tweak her gear before the Fauzt trials start.
