    Why do you have Cold Blooded? Freeze then pop Archon? Did I just miss something critical and awesome? :o


    Scoundrel follower uses a cold damage Buriza, skips his 1st skill choice and therefore uses Multishot all the time, therefore freezing enemies on a regular basis, therefore triggering Cold Blooded on a regular basis. Or so I assume. Is it worth it? I have no idea, but if Jaetch is using it, I assume it is.


    What.....what have I been doing.....! :D Time to try this immediately.


    You would need atleast 20-50 million gold to get a decent 10% + buriza with a socket. But yeah it's totally worth it imo. Good luck!

    Yes it's worth it! :)

    heres my question is blood magic scaled properly?

    do mp3 die to reflect cause of no blood magic (still have 2.9% LS on weapon)

    do mp8 stand in dececrater pluaged and reflect....stay at full HP(useing blood magic)

    also play male wizard for archon female looks bald and weird xD


    Well it all depends on how much damage and mitigation you do. I can stand in plagued + desecrator and shoot at reflect mobs using just the life steal on my sword. To be able to rely solely on blood magic you need pretty good sttats.



    Im sure Jaetch can answer these questions better than me.


    i gope so cause dieing in mp3 to reflect with 2.9% LS is kinda..... yeaaaaa guranted when i do mp8 i use blood magic and prismatic barrier which the extra 5 mp lvls should almost make it void

    How does the assist duration on Archon works in 1.08?

    Do I need to actually hit the mobs? or if the mob die and I'm close enough to get xp?

    Did they update this mechanic with other "on death" spells such as Arcane Torrent and Ray of Frost?

    I dont see why you need a socket in a buriza for your Scoundrel. Just get one with 10%+ freeze and 60+ pierce. They do pitiful damage anyways, you want the freeze. And even if it does not freeze, it always chills so cold blooded will take affect as long as the enemy is hit by multishot.

    I dont know if prices have gone up but I bought 3 of these for my characters 2-3 months ago for like 4-6 mil each.

    Delays, delays :/

    No ETA for when this will be completed, but I'm still working on it.

    No worries, we are just waiting a bit longer :)

    Its going to be good I'm sure, so should be worth the wait :D
    This is where I would put my signature..
  • #48
    About 42 minutes in length so far and I still have yet to cover alternate builds, farming routes, paragon leveling, co-op play, and miscellaneous tips and tricks.

    Might put a disclaimer in the beginning that I will not be liable for anyone falling into a comatose state while watching the video.

    I don't know, it has been so long that I'm not sure I need the video anymore...

    (runs away quickly before Aesthia send a lightining bolt on Bribous head and perma-kills he)... :P

    By the time you're done, Blizzard will have nerfed Archon :P :lol:

    I am legitimately afraid of that.

    Made a "trailer" ...just so it doesn't look like I'm slacking off. I pulled bits and pieces from what I have so far. Again, actual video's around 42 minutes so far and I'm pretty sure it will be over an hour in length by the time I'm done. Maybe I can QA it a bit and cut down on some fluff.

    Anyway, here:

    Damn looks so awesome :)

    Looking forward to this. Jaetch why don't you edit this material you've got already and release it as part 1 and then continue finishing part 2? That would also make sense since you've said that overall length is over 1 h already.

    Because I plan on releasing one guide without any patches or expansions :P

    Why can't I watch that?! :

    It just displays an error. Boo!
  • #57
    ^^ Same error here. I'm watching from Brazil, maybe youtube did not replicate the video across the world yet. Are you guys who live in the US able to watch it ?


    EDIT: I just watched it on a different network. Here I was able to watch the video by Net Virtua, but not from Oi Velox (different ISP's).

    It may be a routing problem or Youtube replication. :)

    EDIT2: The trailer is indeed very good. I think this will be THE guide. No pressure.

    EDIT3: Now I could watch the trailer from the first (problematic) ISP. It seems the replication has ended.

    Looks good to me; I've tried both the youtu.be link and the actual youtube.com link.

    Excellent trailer. Reminds me of my own Quake III moviemaking days. Those were good times. :D

    Let's just hope that the real thing comes out SoonTM.

    BTW thank you for commenting on my Archon. As per your advice I've found a better weapon which has bumped my DPS to 216k fully buffed (up from 196k). My earlier weapon was self-found and so I was proudly using it. If it only rolled a socket then I would've been rich. :D

    But anyway, this new one cost me 5mil and I'm pretty happy with it.



    Also I'm actively trying to craft bracers till I get a vit+all res version. Trumping the shoulders, however, is gonna be a tough ask since it rolled so good already.

    All in all I'd like to make a balanced Archon and I hope I find success. Once again, waiting eagerly for your guide to unleash upon the world.

    May the force be with you.
