Bear Stance, 390K Def, 75% Block, 4.9K Dam, crafted sword, Arreats, Nas Helm, Deadfall, Barrons, Invic, Klaatu, Seal of Kings, Earth Rouser.
Is there anything I should Respec to? I have run TA about 100 Times, got level 121, but cant seem to get Baal down but by maybe 15% health before he spawns all his critters and wastes me.
Any help would be appreciated.
DBaal is a process and requires a bit of strategy for IS since our single target isn't exceptional. First and foremost though, it should be noted that you should have lightning pen where ever possible as this is huge for increasing Storm Blast's damage. Past that, for Baal himself, most of his phases should not be an issue since we can block or outleech his own damage. When he spawns minions, it's worth either teleporting away and having them teleport onto you to deal with them separately or (if you have enough survivability and leech), start hitting baal with Iron Spiral instead of Storm Blast to take care of the minions.
When he spawns any of the prime evils, you need to kit them away from Baal himself. Sometimes this is a bit tricky but with Jitan's Gate/Blink, you can definitely do it. Each of the prime evils can be mostly facetanked by this build with the small exception of Diablo for when he casts his flamestrike which will likely kill you in under two seconds so you need to watch for that. Once the prime evils are down, baal becomes vulnerable again and you can move back to attacking him and his minions.
Finally, this fight will probably take some time. Unless you have absolute GG as fuck gear, don't be surprised if you die a dozen times and it takes 10-15 minute. He has a lot of health and plenty of ways to kill you so it ain't easy. Practice, be willing to die a few times, and keep pushing. Hope that helps!
