decided to make an Auradin for some fun and it's been a blast.
Ran right through Normal with just points into Holy Fire and 1 point into Sacrifice.
Now I'm blazing through Nightmare having respecced into Holy Shock and I'm still 2-3 shotting stuff just by existing. Archer packs aren't even a problem because I can straight up run circles around them until they die.
Pity it drops off at the start of Hell though cuz the endgame gear for it is fukken expensive.

whatever is optimal at killing what you are going to be hunting, some drops are in the 100k range so making a completely new character for that one area you farm it in is barely any time at all. A sorc is probably going to be first followed by a paladin and then barbarian and maybe amazon/druid

I don't like when people suggest that you don't actually need any gear to make a summoner work. Can you TECHNICALLY clear hell naked? Yeah, but you're either going to be dancing like crazy to avoid getting insta-gibbed by any ranged attack, or you're going to shit all over your corpse-making ability and CE damage by running dim vision instead of amp, and you're going to be making those corpses sloooooow. That is a decidedly non-chill playstyle. If you want to MF on a summoner and be even somewhat competitive compared to a modestly geared sorc, you really do need great gear.

>> No.5780941

running through with a necro and it's an interesting way to play. respecced to a bone necro for hell, clay golem + decrep is so ridiculous for bosses it's hard to believe. i'm finding my merc dying a lot to regular mobs though, i'm hoping i find a better base for insight (or even upgrading to obedience although i'd miss the mana) soon, and a decent base to give him treachery or something instead of the duriel's shell he currently has

Insight iron golem. But yeah a summoner is always great, probably my favourite build.

>> No.5781389

>>5781368
i'm not summoning, i'm going pure bone. was a little underwhelmed by the damage numbers but it doesn't seem to be too weak, which i'm guessing is because enemies magic resistance is pretty low compared to other elements on average.

also, insight iron golem? seems like a pain to keep finding bases for that, and also i'd be removing it every time there's a significant monster i'd need the slowing of clay golem for, but i might try it out. like the idea. some other anon recommended i keep an insight scythe on switch but that doesn't seem much easier than chugging mana pots

>> No.5781412

>>5781389

Disgusting, don't do this.
>insight iron golem
Works very well and is practically unkillable once you get a decent amount of +skills. Iron golems aren't de-summoned when you save and exit.
>every time there's a significant monster i'd need the slowing of clay golem for
Outside of hell baal, what do you need that slow for? For bosses, amp, or if your shit is dying, swap between amp and life tap to keep everything topped off.

The iron golem gains all the properties of the item. This includes base damage, added damage, crushing blow, leech, oskills (but they are not smart enough to use anything except for passives like critical strike), auras when equipped and so on. They can even gain energy, mana and stamina, but you'd never know this because it doesn't do anything for them.

>> No.5781904

It's not worth making an insight IG just so the merc can carry obedience. Obedience is good, but not that good. Also no matter how stronk you are, if you run dkeys your golems will die eventually.

I would rank the usefulness of the merc weapons like so:

Well it's a matter of personal preference, some like to just zoom around and cast five spells at once which I could never do.
Some summoning upgrades would be great though. Have some hotkeys to send everyone to a certain location or concentrate on a certain enemy, maybe something to have them take different formations.
I always thought it would be cool if the summons could surround the summoner and so on. At least a little AI upgrade.

Surely you can take 5 seconds to throw together a new insight with the 4os polearms and insight runes that are raining from the sky during these runs, and give your merc the significantly better weapon. Even if you can only afford obedience, it's significantly more powerful than a perfectly rolled insight.

I think it's better than what more people give it credit for. Just ran hell meph a few times and amped him, but otherwise let my merc kill him without any skellingtons.

>>5782982
I guess they are all about the CB, which is wayyy more than a double-damage hit. But since you can get 35 CB from gully's, and 35 is plenty, and there is no helm that is specifically good like that with Obedience, their ideas are a bit dumb and they should feel bad about it.

For non-summoners I would take Insight and for summoners Infinity if you can afford it; otherwise, Insight. And for people who prefer to just go AFK while the skeletons work, clearing rooms fast obviously isn't a big deal and it doesn't matter what you take.

I can't wrap my heads around what was going with D2 devs when they made the game. So many random choices which doesn't fit the final game at all, identifying items being one. In game with millions of drops. Did they really think someone would play this for only one hour a day and maybe identify two items tops? Why can't I fucking stack gems you fucking retarded Brevik cumguzzlers?

It's like watching those idiotic official builds devs make for D3 with which you can't clear Torment 1 but it's family friendly and slow while the fanbase is on amphetamines and rips apart Torment 666.

>By carefully preparing special parchment with magical inks, a focus for spells can be created. Such magical scrolls provide the reader with the ability to cast a spell that they normally may not know, without expending any mana. Very powerful spells cannot be used by the untrained, however, for the cryptic symbols upon them are difficult to comprehend. The act of casting the spell drains the scroll of all magical power and causes the parchment to crumble to dust instantly.
Lore-wise, it makes more sense after playing D1, as there are scrolls for specific spells you can use on-time only, even if you haven't learned the spell.

I think the game went through a pretty radical change partway through early development, from something closer to D1 to what we have now, there are so many little things that would make sense if the game was just a little slow paced, a little "smaller" so to speak. LoD and the later vanilla patches took it even further.

The biggest example of this sort of thing being the original stash space and the stamina bar. Built for almost an entirely different game.

I couldn't clear Hell naked, but with a pretty shittly equiped Merc (Corpsemorn armor, rare helmet with resists, rare polearm with 250% ED) and just P topaz helm and armor plus a teleport staff I could clear the Pits pretty easily.

If I slogged up revives to good ones I could move through the rest of Hell with only marginally better gear. The key was a shit ton of revives and a lot of dim vision. CE kills plenty fast.

just got my first anni! i'd never done dclone before and he happened to spawn in plugy as i was doing baal runs with my necro. i was bone, which i pretty quickly realized wasn't going to do dick for his insane regen, so i respecced to a poison necro with death's web.

that didn't work for shit either because poison nova's 2 second proc and teleporting around him in circles didn't do anything (for some reason not every nova affected him and he instantly destroyed merc and golem).

respecced AGAIN for poison but this time put 20 in golem mastery and removed death's web for blackbog's and decided to go with poison dagger for the increased poison length. started using decrep + golem and slapped on some hotspurs, then gave the merc kelpie snare + guillame's and let him wear down dclone while i stopped regen with dagger. took a few trips back to town to revive the merc but he eventually went down. had a pretty good time doing it desu

So I just reinstalled this old gem, 1.13c with PlugY and with all the Summoner talk in here I decided to go with a MF Summoner.
Haven't played in a long time but did some reading, already cranked the duration for Revives up because I remember them being really annoying.
May this journey bring lots of loot.

You are off your fucking rocker, mate. I sure hope this is bait, but I know it's not. Item depth doesn't exist and any semblance of choice died the moment they started pushing the absurdly overpowered set bonuses. Not only did that kill the sliver of fucking item choice, but it also destroyed skill choice at the same fucking time. It's really quite impressive. The whole game is now "nuke the entire screen repeatedly until the boss spawns that 1 shots you, kill the boss before you get 1 shotted 5 times while using predetermined setups that outweigh everything else by a factor of 50,000". D2s sorc doesn't even begin to touch that level of advantage.

Don't compare that fucking joke of a game to D2, Grim Dawn, PoE or any other game worth the title.

The ONLY thing, the single thing D3 has over the rest is fluidity of gameplay. It feels fantastic to play, but without any depth all that achieves is an army of brainwashed idiots who think flashy effects and smooth combat somehow makes a good game. Take that and shove it up your ass. You have no taste or objectivity. None at all.

All D3 'suffers' from in this case is a clearly defined end-game with an almost infinitely scaling boundary. You can say a lot of things about D2 vs D3, but when the "highest level" of PvE play in D2 is based on minimizing the amount of time spent full-clearing a85/CS/WSK/keyrunning/ubering, yet the same difficulty level and even challenges can still be cleared by a WW barbarian wearing blues or some other budget build, it looks like you have a shitload more choice even though a fully decked Hammerdin finds Hell positively trivial and there's nary a point to running half the character builds if all you're concerned with is efficiency.

D3 doesn't get nearly as rigid until you start hitting the highest echelons of the end-game. It is largely gear-check based the higher you climb, but you can meet those gear checks in multiple ways per class.

Your rant is more concerned with sticking it to the faggot anon and parading your superior taste in video games with those generalized "facts" read off the internet. Then there's the bizarre assertion that the game is fun to play but it's shit nevertheless, as opposed to your highly enlightened Demon Clicker game that you probably are only interacting with when you set your bots to run Nightmare Lower Kurast in the morning.

I've tried more than once. I don't think it's possible without very heavy modification. Summons and mercs TP to the player with a hidden passive skill called 'Teleport2' or something similar, you'd have to give it to all enemies to use when they revive and I'm sure that would take fucking forever to do and probably break the game, too.

I did make it so that the revive skill gives the monster that skill, but they either don't or can't cast it. People have been trying to make this work for years now and I've not seen anyone pull it off.

This is probably the best chance at getting revives with a leash, but you'd have to do the code editing yourself. The actual edits are at the bottom and seem pretty simple, but the locations are for 1.10f.

anything you guys wish blizzard had done differently on d2 after all this time playing? i always think they could have done a better job with the mercs since the act 2 mercs typically outclass the rest because of default auras. i think it would have been a lot better if each group of mercs had auras that differed based on difficulty hired and were kind of themed.

Act 1 (utility): blessed aim, fanaticism, fanatacism and will occasionally buff you with inner sight
Act 2 (defensive): prayer, defiance, salvation
Act 3 (elemental): holy freeze, conviction, conviction + will occasionally buff you with enchant
Act 5 (offensive): concentration, might, might and will occasionally buff you with BO or BC

Just tested a3 fire and lightning mercs in a full LAN game with andy's, magi, 2 spirits, and putting the Infinity on the character. Crescent Moon would have been a better sword but I have no Um or base.

Lightning was able to kill this unique in just less than half a minute, which surprised me. Fire absolutely sucked shit versus anything. Reverted the character back to a2 merc (inf, treach, gaze) and attacked another unique shaman, and it died before I could get a screenshot.

It seems the lightning actually does noticeable damage when he chooses lightning over charged bolt. The a3 mercs just need more damage. I think Infinity would have been better as a sword runeword to give the a5 merc more use. That would make holy shock pals rather ridiculous though.

I also think that synergies were a terrible idea and lead to essentially investing everything into just making 1 skill as strong as possible and using that for the whole game. I also think that the balance of unique items is super wonky. Some of them are beyond useless, and others are ungodly powerful. I wish the drop rate would allow for players to get a few uniques without grinding bosses or areas. Speaking of which, I wish the boss fights were more engaging.

There was no build distinction pre-synergies, aside from sorceresses. Every character was exactly the same because you can just max out all the best skills. If you think every amazon being an immolation freezing multiple furyzon is good design then you should try out some retarded mods instead.

Slow Missiles actually makes it MORE difficult to avoid projectiles as it causes them to bunch up in groups as opposed to whizzing by your head as you run around taking potshots at everything. Combine this with narrow corridors created by projectile spam and you have a skill that doesn't do what it is supposed to do (which is make it more difficult to get hit by projectiles).

You don't use it in narrow hallways since you can off-screen everything and pierce them. For bigger rooms, you can slow missiles and then slowly move in a circular pattern as you fire off shots. If things get too cluttered just walk out of the room.

>more than one build

Last time I checked there is only one effective druid build and using the word extremely is very questionable. Rabies is a shittier poison nova that paradoxically gets worse if you deal reasonable damage, fury is a shittier zeal, werebear is so bad that other characters are better at using it than the druid, the summoning is trash (outside of oak sage which is an aura that can awkwardly die or float out of your radius, fucking up your life), the entire fire tree is a sick joke that doesn't scale past normal and no one has ever used arctic blast outside of maybe some autistic level 9 PvPing and just for applying cold duration. And then you have the tornado build, the only real druid build, which functions about as accurately as a drunk guy taking a piss. The only reason you would ever use anything except for a windy druid is because you are a filthy hipster that wants to feel unique even though you are really just using hand-me-down versions of other better skills. The druid could be deleted and no one would care outside of a few niche sorceresses and assassins. The druid is mindboggling, an entire character and he has only three skills worth using past normal, and on top of that he has almost all of the worst breakpoints in the game.

These goddamn things drop all day long for me because I do endless baals and have no druid. As was mentioned, walk the WSK and kill Baal to get all the rare stuff.

Guided arrow wasn't even that good except in 1.09 because uniques and runewords were complete dogshit except for Windforce. It hit at a maximum of 6.25 times per second, the same as strafe. The difference of 3/4th weapon damage and full weapon damage is irrelevant when the majority of your bow damage against bosses in a post-1.09 world is crushing blow. And you definitely are not using piercing guided arrow for anything except bosses, so it serves no actual purpose.
