yes , you do miss something .


if you can pick any uberskill you want when you reach 90 , then you're neutral . the uberskill does not determine your path , reason why you still get both bonusses (more damage and more targets) from L&S even if you choose Superbeast as uberskill . the points in the skill trees will determine your path , and since you are not investing into neither holy or the unholy skills , guess what : you're neutral .

If you do have points in the unholy tree , and you can only pick between Superbeast and Ressurect after level 90 , only then you are unholy .

Hello:

Still experimenting with different characters, I decided to try the Strongbow guide. I like him so far, as he has pretty fast clear speed. I have 150ish ias, 285 fhr, 50% life leech and almost 70% cb. I am currently running teganze to try and get xis runes to make better gear. My Cascade damage is roughly 4k with motw. I'm not running teganze as fast as I hoped, does anyone have any recommendations on how to increase my kill speed there? I'm using creepy craft with 240ish bow damage (I haven't rolled anything higher yet)

Thanks

keep rolling then . it may spawn with up to +320 max damage , which is more than double than what you got now .

i know 320 is hard to get , along with a good roll for the rest of the stats , so anything above +200 max damage should be good enough .


good luck !

So I'm looking at Storm (Thundercrack Zon build) and I'm wondering why those scepter choices for endgame gear were chosen.. Aren't there much better options? Like Secret RW or Shark?

because the high +max damage is not always the key . i'd always choose some proc instead and less max damage . Shark is already on switch , but just for the bloodlust boost ,as it is inferior to the damage you deal by using
Demhe (Xis)

Demhe
Maces, Sceptres

'ZodXis'
Runeword Level: 120
25% Chance to cast level 55 Plague Avatar on Melee Attack
+(202 to 230)% Enhanced Damage
+(126 to 250) to Maximum Damage
Stun Attack
+(39 to 45)% to Cold Spell Damage
+(39 to 45)% to Poison Spell Damage
-(39 to 45)% to Enemy Cold Resistance
-(39 to 45)% to Enemy Poison Resistance
+(101 to 250) Mana on Striking
Cannot be Unsocketed
- the physical damage is decent , but the plague avatar makes it great .
Legion
Legion
Scepter (Sacred)

Required Level: 100
Required Dexterity: 404
One-Hand Damage: (147-178) to (221-268)
Dexterity Damage Bonus: (20/256 per Dexterity)%
20% Chance to cast level 10 Phalanx on Melee Attack
1% Base Block Chance
+(150 to 180)% Enhanced Damage
Adds (95 to 120)-(151 to 190) damage
+200% Damage to Undead
Adds 1-800 lightning damage
+(11 to 20) to Balance (Amazon Only)
Socketed (3)

is also fun to play with , as those Phalanxes are covering a high aoe + it comes along with 1% increased CTB + extra points into balance - more defense . You can get ctc SoR after kill on the craft which deals serious damage and also debuffs the opponents (along the heavy boost to dexterity and some decent +max damage) .

so no , i don't want just + max damage . if however that pleases you , you may go for the secret rw as it adds the most of it , but i don't consider it as an option for me as it also has "slow target" modiffier which makes defensive harmony useless - the slow types overwrite eachother (i prefer to keep the benefits of DH)

it's hard to believe that any of them will stay as they are now as both the gearing and the skill trees will suffer changes in the next patch . their main cores might not change very much , but most probably they will all need some updates , if not full re-work .

Thats where you and all the other veterans can help me and many other newbies. We will surely have to leech all the info we can get.
P.S I am literally sucking dry all the threads... so much info
