High MP's uber runs with HotA/Rend build
Posted 21 January 2013 - 12:56 AM
I make frequently uber runs on mp 5-8 and struggle always with the ones in the right portal.
When my group manages to keep Kulle away from me and I'm not unlucky with tornados, bubbles etc from Kulle I survive and kill the big one.
My question now is what should I change in my gear amd or skills to survive better or easier?
I usually play:
Ignore Pain-Iron Hide
I use the gear I'm wearing right now, just switch my gem in helmet:
Switching to some more defennsive gear and sacrifycing dps didn't help really.
I also have a offhand with LL and lower dps.
Should I try to switch to my skorn?
Animosity seems a little useless for these fights, what else could I try?
Anything about my gear?
Thanks for the help

Your life leech is where it should be when you can spamhammer reflect packs all you want without loosing basically any hp, at this point siegebreaker wont have anything on you! For other packs/bosses switch in a witching hour instead of your IK belt.
Another choice, being my favorite, would be to try out a Skorn if the playstyle suites you more.

PS. You should pretty much always have bloodthirst selected as one of your passives.

First of all, thanks for all your replies and suggestions.
Why is rend not good as dual wield?
In my farming build with sprint marathon instead of ignore pain or heroic leap it saves my ass in every reflect pack.
Reflect seems to sometimes one hit me and otherwise not a problem at all.
I have a Skorn, but the playstyle is really really slow

+/- 500 AR
minimum 6% life steal (passive incl.)
Get this right and no e is to much. Only some combos on mp8+ can be pain in the ass, but that's like 1/30.

Furthermore rend + bloodlust is not strong against a single target, it's only effective against more monsters.
if you only have problems with tanking siegebreaker, then tank him.
Take a 1hand weapon with high loh >800 and vitality, dps doesnt matter,
a shield with vitality or a second 1hand weapon with high loh >800 and vitality and
a amulet with loh >600, (armor, all resistance and vitality).
With overpower crushing advance and warcry you should have no problem with tanking him. Pull siegebreaker to one side of the room. Very far away from the rest of your group.
If your task is to tank him, then you must not kill him alone and your dps doesnt really matter until Kulle is dead.
