400M Budget. What to get?

  • #1
    I got lucky with a drop and got 400M for it. My budget has been low so far.

    I would like to stay away from CM because I don't like the game play. Currently I play Archon.

    Any help would be appreciated. :D

    aww cute icon :D

    you could ditch the storm armor unles you're using scramble. shocking aspect does not proc well with archon since archon attacks have low proc rate

    for gears, judging from your dprog, you need more all resist/vit/attack speed (2 minimum imo), cc (need 50 unbuffed), and more cd

    archons can either go zuni route (zuni armor/boots/ring) or tal route (tal armor/zuni boots and ring), with your budget and current gears and having low ehp, tal route will be bad

    triumvirate would be better with vit. have you tried crafting int shoulders?

    i'd get all resist from helm/shoulder/bracer/boots/gloves.

    can get double int/vit on your witching hour, either 8/45+ or 9/45+

    I don't know what U.S. prices are like but you definitely need to craft better shoulders/bracers/gloves/neck. Picha's advice is good, whatever you spend the money on, make sure it has all res and high damage. Some items to consider outside of the crafted ones:

    1. Change rare ring to a good Zuni Pox (will add 55 + 60+ All res).
    2. Change Zuni Boots to one with higher int and 70+ All Res
    3. Trium with vit (your goal is to be in archon mode as much as possible, so get vit there instead of APOC, keep the Apoc trium for other builds if needed).
    4. Int/Vit Inna's
    5. 6 CC 250+int Armor Tal Rasha's Helm (used to run with that before my mempo and is not very expensive)
    6. Tal Rasha's Allegiance, with CC or Attack Speed (AS tends to be cheaper).
    7. Life Steal Weapon.

    All great suggestions! Thanks so much!

    @pichapie: I have only tried crafting an amulet. Since I have Vile Wards I didn't think I'd get much of an upgrade. Am I thinking wrong?

    You could roll shoulders that blow almost even the best Vile Wards out of the water.

    Just look for the +3 green upgrade!

    I will start crafting shoulders instead of Necklaces then! Thanks!
