I'll post my merc's gear tomorrow. He procs: banish, doom


That is actually more damaging then beneficial. Banish and doom both override eachother, and they override your hunter's mark, which in our case is much stronger than doom.


Thanks for clarifying this, I didn't know! I'm curious to see what merc build works best with this fortressbarb 2.0

I've immediately changed my merc to a proc-based, only keeping Qarak's Will for Bloodlust.
Do you know if when I equip my merc with gear that enhances bloodlust damage and duration, that will also apply to me? Or does that only apply to my merc at the moment he procs bloodlust?

Whatever proc/spell your merc uses will only benefit from the buffs the merc has equipped.

i.e. if you're using something like
Adrenaline Rush
Adrenaline Rush
Ring (Sacred)

Required Level: 100
+1 to All Skills
40% Combat Speeds
40% Movement Speed
Maximum Elemental Resists +1%

, you won't get 200% duration from merc's bloodlust. merc would have to be wearing the ring.

I get you with hammers/maul char, I was noticing same, except mayby Holy Meele paladin, the hammers/mauls are not commonly used. Well hit level 120 , I use this stuff for now, and look forward to complete destruction. The gear is vary from what you suggest, but I always try to find my way (or dont have sufficient gear ;) I use act 2 merc too, so far so good :D

I mean.. your gear is miles ahead of what I'm still using even now at 25 charms done. I'm still in TU's + a crafted shit helm, so I'm sure you should do pretty well with your setup. It should go smoother, as long as you find fire pierce somewhere for AH to be effective.

You can get a ton of defense just with Runemaster alone. Some DR from Dear Esther and Jitan armor, and then the leech/life on kill should sustain you well enough. Only thing is you're restricted to the fortress cooldown then, but if it works with the procs well enough, it should be good.


I find a quiver with cryo beam on striking and all my problems are solves :lol:

Nice update with potential endgame gear. Btw that last glaive you mention doesn't have %slow as stated, at least, doesn't show up in the item preview when clicking on it.

Night's Embrace
Night's Embrace
Glaive (Sacred)

Required Level: 100
Required Dexterity: 496
Throw Damage: (172-216) to (306-408)
One-Hand Damage: (110-138) to (229-312)
Dexterity Damage Bonus: (20/256 per Dexterity)%
5% Chance to cast level 26 Burning Veil on Kill
+(1 to 2) to All Skills
+(140 to 200)% Enhanced Damage
+(100 to 150) to Maximum Damage
+(100 to 150)% Damage to Demons
-(25 to 35)% to Enemy Fire Resistance
10% Chance of Crushing Blow
Slow Target (10 to 20)%
(15 to 25)% to All Attributes
Socketed (4)

has slow target, but it has huge damage and fire pierce to make it more than useful for the last heroic bosses, since we struggle with fire pierce for now, only sitting at about 45.

Edit: Unless you meant
Emberstorm
in which case, that one carries average damage but gives a huge boost to fire pierce and is really easy to find.

It will be, indeed. I've been distracted the last week or so, but mainly just trying to get the proper gear to go ahead and do some of the later bosses. I have quite a bit completed still with the early/midgame gear, but I just have yet to do the writeups on them. Progress is listed at the bottom of to-do stuff
