    posted a message on Enigma Necro - T13 Chill Speed Build

    ENIGMA NECRO


    I loved the Enigma Summoner Necro in D2, it was my most played character and the playstyle was a lot similar to this one!


    If you are anything like me, you feel awkward using most of the top tier necro builds because they are slightly awkward to play. Either they have huge CDs, choice between more than one form of dealing damage, clunky depending on the scenario, etc.


    When I speed run I want to not have to think too much, so, I made this build based on a lot of other popular Skeletal Mage archetypes!


    THE SYNERGIES


    I think this is, by far, the most synergistic speed farming build at the moment. Here's a list of what to expect:


    • Scythe of the Cycle, Circle of Nailuj's Evol, the Blood Set, Simulacrum, and Tasker and Theo all go towards the skill Skeletal Mage with the Life Support rune
    • Simulacrum with the Cursed Form rune activates all 3 curses because of your Frailty Aura (no casting!) which, in turn, procc your Dayntee's Binding belt
    • In-Geom and Haunted Visions make sure that you will have Simulacrum up almost 100% of the time
    • Bone Armor both gives a huge toughness boost, as well as proccs your Krysbin's Sentence and Scythe of the Cycle at the same time
    • Nemesis spawn more elites for your to keep your In-Geom up
    • Since you will be activating Simulacrum more often, the passive Rathma's Shield makes sure that you become immune and don't lose any life while spawning 10 Skeleton Mages in 1 second in the middle of elites
    • In-Geom and Blood Set make sure that you have Blood Rush up at all times with ALL RUNES, this means you have 100% extra armor and a crazy amount of healing at all times


    PLAYSTYLE


    You can watch the video attached to understand the playstyle, but I'll also make a step-by-step list here:


    1. Skip all monsters, cast only Blood Rush or Bone Armor, until you find an elite pack
    2. Bood Rush into the middle of the pack
    3. Use Simulacrum and spawn the Skeleton Mages by right clicking what you want them to attack (aim at the Rare or at the Rare Elites)
    4. Bone Armor to procc your ring
    5. ?????
    6. Profit!

    THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND


    Trag'Ouls allows you to convert 100% extra healing into HP, so be sure to Blood Rush through as many monsters as possible while at full HP until you hit 100 stacks!


    Blood Rush is an amazing ability that allows you to prevent any form of CC or damage while you are teleporting, abuse this skill!


    You don't lose HP from summoning Skeleton Mages if you just used Simulacrum because of our passive.

    posted a message on RIP HardCore Next Season
    Quote from KavHcgo-next

    I think it's pretty much general knowledge now that high density rifts Are going to Lag


    This is caused by a Bottleneck of information


    This is a risk you must acknowledge when playing hardcore.


    Here are some questions you have to ask yourself


    Is my computer able to handle the graphical effects smoothly?

    If you have an old PC high density rifts Are going to lag you whether you like it or not.


    Is my internet connection able to handle the stress of high rifts?

    Does your isp experience congestion? Take some time to do some research to see if any other users are experiencing issues with your ISP within your area (Network congestion)

    For ADSL - Bandwidth is limited and multiple users or programs could be eating up precious bandwidth

    Cable - Shared internet across a neighborhood (let that sink in)

    Fibre - Still susceptable to disconnects like every other connection out there.


    You must remember information must go from point A to point B, blizzard is not responsible for safe journey of information between those points


    Going forward with an understanding of networking limitations how am i able to safeguard myself from lag spikes?


    Am i pulling too many mobs at once? Part of survival in hardcore is understanding all limitations.


    As a hardcore player it is your responsibility to ensure your own survival.


    Going forward you must understand the risks invovled with dense areas.

    You forgot something crucial though...
    It's not the client's ISP that is in fault, it's Blizzard's servers.
    Proof?
    Play really late at night (3am for example) and you have absolutely no lag because no one else is playing.

    To be honest, that looked like a genuine lag spike, he wasn't doing anything special at the end and the density was less!


    RIP Though :(

    Quote from spork1go-next

    So the game seems to be capable to handle fightning the mobs at spawn but when dragging more or less the full rift into a big clump it lags, under certain conditions to so much that you die.


    Does it work playing solo or the issue only appear in group?


    Reasons for death-lag:

    wd-helltooth

    shield pylon


    any other?


    quadruple rend on many many mobs (double rend + double bloodbath), hell i even experienced mini lag spikes just using ww and double dot gems (toxin and PE)
    Also Hammerdins and Area Damage! :D

    With all this hype surrounding lag in higher Greater Rifts we decided to say "fuck it" and go for the best setup to farm XP.


    Everything was going fine until...


    We took a Shield Pylon... :D

    posted a message on S4 PTR - Super Human Conquest (HC Barb)

    Hey guys,


    While getting ready for the new season in the PTR, I decided to make a video explaining how to beat one of the new Conquests.


    I play hardcore, so, the name is Super Human.


    It requires you to finish GR40 without using any of the class sets! (more like this Blizz, plz)

    This video is a walkthrough of how to do it with a Barbarian!

    I have sub 1 min runs with this build, I didn't fish for a good rift as you can see in the video! :)


    I've tested out AW a lot and it's best suited for GR39+ farm, there's just too much downtime and thinking for mindless low lvl farming like T6 and GR30.


    I'm not using an ancient In-Geom in the video, nor an ancient off hand, and my bracers have dexterity and cold%... My gear is very underolled and you can do much better with other gear.

    Why not just use Aether walker? I don't get it...

    Well, Aether Walker has a couple downsides:

    1. it costs Arcane Power to use Teleport
    2. you lose 4 global CDs to apply all stacks of Tal Rasha

    With this build, you can instantly (and I mean instantly, zero seconds downtime) use Teleport + Explosive Blast + Frost Nova for 3 stacks, and you can keep spamming all these skills together for maximum damage output with very little Arcane cost! :)
