    posted a message on Brainless Builds Comparison: Sage's set builds (with videos)
    Quote from Bagstonego-next

    Yeah. Damn. You got me. Or rather, the game got me. S12 has me fully hooked. But from previous seasons I know that might end any day ;-) Today's the last day my group has *said* to be online, so if they really stop playing as of tomorrow I might do so as well. But well... not necessarily very likely. We'll see. Still got some goals in mind and some keys to throw away :P


    But no shortage of DBs and even if, T13 (with no Sage) is just better, so I personally would discourage anyone from running Sage's at this point. Sage's on T13 will only yield about 20-25% more DBs and you WILL sacrifice more DPS by replacing 2-3 pieces of gear with Sage's, no doubt. Pre-T13 and depending on your class, Sage's is still great though (especially on wiz/monk/crus with bad gear).

    I have very little time to play (full time job, wife and daughter) so I only play no season. If you have decent Akkhan pieces, add Sages and wreck T13 with any speed condemn sage build. You just kill everything so fast... I even did a Gr100 in less than 10 min with 1200 paragon (with standard condemn gr push build) and stop playing. Moved to free Starcraft 2

    "So what if I turn down the difficulty, and run at 3-4 minutes?" That's always possible, but then you're averaging approx 18 Grifts per hour, but without the increased experience and drop chances. Also, that's a lot of keys to burn in an hour. Lowers your overall gem levels as well, as 1% does happen, and running 75's still gives you a 1% chance to 90. 70's have a 0% chance. It's all about finding that balance, and making it work for you instead of against you.




    Sorry, just figured out the whole quote the quote bit. This part. Thanks.
    And thanks to the rest of the responses. I just enjoy hearing other people's experiences, helps me figure out better strategies. I had to laugh at myself, the other primal drop I got that night was the Guard of Johanna, and I almost lost my shit when I saw the name that popped up because my highest performing spec is Hammerdin, so of course, I was stoked. And the rolls were worse than on the regular legendary that I still had sitting in my bag. I couldn't believe it, and no matter what one stat I change, the shield is still remarkably worse than the decent ancient I got. The only thing holding me back from getting up to a solid run at 90 is the ancient, decently rolled Johanna's Argument, which doesn't seem to exist in my world of Diablo.



    You have 7 possible 1H Flails and a 14,29% possibilities of a Johanna's Argument.


    Random is random, but if ancient is 10:1, in 70 yellow upgrades you get 1 ancient one. Yeah, I know, 1.750 DBs, pfff...


    Necro has 4 possible 1h scythes (25%) and 4 possible 2h scythes (25%). Much easier...



    I got a very nice ancient Johanna's Argument just doing speed 64 Grs with my speed LoN sader, so you never know...


    Good luck!!!


    Drop rates aren't split evenly among legendary items. Some drop more often than others. So in actuality it's more likely to be less than 14% drop chance.
    I know. Take a look at:
    Legendary Drop Rates & BloodShard Prices 2.6.0
    The 1h flails are equal.

    For me (1194 paragon here), with sort of speed LoN bomb sader (In-geom cubed, Wings of Angels for mobility and Akarat Rally instead of Prophet), the most important thing is to be able to kill elites+companions (for getting the in-geom buff) with only 1 bomb/CoE rotation.


    If I need to wait for a second Coe rotation, it is too slow. So, my sweet spot is a lot of 64Grs under 4 or 3 minutes, depending of conduits/pylons/density.


    In 2.6.1, with the buffed condemn build, I hope to do it higher and quicker (sadly, no LoN buffs).

    posted a message on 2.6.1 new damage affixes vs items skill damage

    Are the %damage to a skill additive or multiplicative to the new 2.6.1 weapon damage affixes?


    Example:


    New Frydehr's Wrath shield = 800% condemn damage

    Shoulders with 15% more condemn damage (instead 650 Vit).


    If additive, 815% condemn damage is not much better than 800, so 650 Vit in shoulders is better...


    On the other hand, if all the condemn damage is multiplicative with the new 1500% Akkhan damage:

    800 x 1500 = 1.200.000

    815 x 1500 = 1.222.500


    Any thoughts?

    posted a message on Competitive Sader Build using a 2H sword

    Noob question: Why don't transmog the weapon of any of the Angry_Roleplayer builds? My main is a Lon Bomb Sader, but I hate flails, so I change its aspect for the Tyrael's sword, I love it...


    You don't want to change anything? Even the colour of your items?

    posted a message on Easiest build to do a solo GR100?

    Sweeper was easiest for me.


    Thanks! All your runs were before the buff from 1000 to 1300 to Akkhan?


    I wrote the total strength and dps of the 5 builds (more or less).
    Crusader solo gr100. Paragon 1548 (approximately)


    Invoker 21.834 strength
    Holy shotgun 18.176 strength 2.557.483 dps (fishy)
    Sweep 19.226 strength 3.256.500 dps
    Blessed shield 18.354 strength 2.736.000 dps
    Condemn 21.000 strength 3.293.000 dps


    I don't have any decent Furnace, so I need to reroll all the new weapons and shields to get the new affixes... but I have a nice pig sticker (very easy to get a nice one upgrading yellow daggers) and a decent shield.


    I hate Invokers, but it's the only build I can run just when 2.6.1 arrives... Have you tried it with the set buffs?

    Quote from vakemango-next

    I have found this build: http://www.diablofans.com/builds/95445-condemn-by-fire-gr100


    Looks straight forward enough and seems to be what I'm looking for. Admittedly I'd rather have a barb or necro build but this seems interesting enough for me to try with the next patch.

    Condemn Sader will be my first try in 2.6.1 too, f*ck yeah!

    posted a message on Easiest build to do a solo GR100?

    I'm at work, so can't watch the videos. Which build is the easiest to do a solo no season 2.6.1 GR100?


    I'm 1180 Paragon, and at the moment, have 10 level 85 gems for augment.


    Which of the 4 builds (sweep, invoker, condemn, blessed shield) is easier and less paragon/gear dependent?


    Would love to use the condemn build and kill everything, hate the sniper mode, killing only elites and skipping trush mobs...

    As Spewnami said, Crusader is your friend. It's not part of any meta, but I love the lore and aspect.


    Condemn builds, for example, use a 2 hand weapon equipped in 1 hand (with the Heavenly Strength passive), and a shield in the other hand. You can look like a beast!!!


    Edit: if you don't want shields, some barb builds can go only with a 2 hand weapon equipped.

    Wow! 1300% increased damage for Akkhan and 5400% of your Thorns damage to the first enemy hit for Invoker.


    Sader rocks!!!


    :D


    Edit: Uf.... The Shadow's Mantle. (6) Set: Impale deals an additional 50000% weapon damage to the first enemy hit. My god, what a sniper...

    Paragon? Any augments? Leg gems level?


    I had 1353 paragon. There were 3 augments of 67,67 and 68 all to intelligence. I used a Bane of the Stricken level 94, Esoteric level 94 and Ban of the Trapped level 86. This resulted in a sheet DPS of 1.8 mil, which is good, but not super high.

    Thanks for the info!

    Quote from Rob64go-next

    What is the State of JadeHarvaster currently? It got buffs damage and toughness wise. Few Seasons ago i managed an easy GR 80 with it maybe first week into the Season. What can i expect?



    expect at least 10 GRs higher i think.

    Over on the PTR for 2.6.1 with 1.8 mil sheet dps, I cleared a 94. This was done in softcore and I did die 3 times, but I'm not an experienced jade player. In the hands of a well skilled and geared jade player clearing north of 100 should not be a problem.
    Paragon? Any augments? Leg gems level?
