Hey guys, been a while since i've been lurking around here but season 5 got me all fired up again and i wanted to share something because it's been frustrating me to the point i wanted to uninstall...almost
What i've noticed is that when i run the barb earth set dungeon, one of the objectives is to use Leap then Ground Stomp then Earthquake on ALL elites in the dungeon.
This being easy as it is really with the leap build, but the game hardly seems to register the moves done on the elites?
I've tried different timings, standing exactly next to them... Sometimes i just get a fail when i leap towards one??
I've tried about 30 times on the first elite mob and it failed about 22 times... and i have no clue what i am doing wrong anymore ;/
Has anyone else experienced this? And if so did you find a way to counter it?
Remove blade of the tribes and dread iron, and make sure you do the right amount of damage. For me, that was killing the elite in 1 rotation of 1-3 leaps, ground stomp, earthquake, boulder toss. You need good damage to squash the imps as well.
I have a dread iron but not using it because the stats are horrible on it ( on that specific one ) i haven't been able to get a single blade of the tribes yet with both gambling and upping rares lol....like 50+ IK weapons and still counting.. love the RNG
So yeah i'm checking to drop cubed items and stuff like that. Kinda silly i have to go that way in order to be able to complete it.
Also on a sidenote , i had a very good attempt today...managed to get all the elites done properly ( with a bit of luck i guess ) killed 232 , frozen mobs for 60s... but then the mastery comes up and i just.........run out of mobs in the area with like 12 left to kill , everything explored and killed..
with the timer running out i checked every corner and yeah nothing there.
Considering to drop the whole set dungeon because i'm getting too frustrated with this, but wondering what generic reply i'll get from blizz.
All the mobs despawn after you're done (i.e., failed the mastery), so you can't check where you missed them. I had multiple of those situations you mention. The only solution is to be more thorough, because you know that those imps run away like little bitches. I especially noticed that they sometimes run back where you came from if you're clearing a large square - especially at the area right above the entrance - shown here https://youtu.be/712teqyF9UQ?t=33. at 0:33 you see an outline of the map, and in the 'double stairs' area i usually jumped down and then worked my way up towards the next part, but imps tend to run down then, causing you to miss them. Take 5 extra seconds to jump after them to check whether you missed that. In the end I made it with 10 seconds remaining (after many tries ).
I just stacked cooldown reduction and attack speed, ran Fury of the Vanquished in cube and used Seismic Slam as my spender, used In-Goem plus some random weapon with cooldown reduction on it as my weapons and used Obsidian Ring of Zodiac for more cooldown reduction, didn't unequip Dread Iron but I did purposely gimp my damage in many ways to stop myself from 1shotting the elites.
Also dismiss your follower as it can cause the kill count to go screwed, I cleared it fully twice and failed needing 10-15mobs before realising, beat the mastery as soon as I dismissed.
