Diablo® III

61mil thorns/aoe crusader build

I have been messing around with a build that uses thorns as a main source of damage. Its working amazing.

I do not use the 1000% bracers as they are broke, I also plan on using the invoker set but RNG hates me and never drops.

I am currently streaming this build if you would like to come check it out.

There's some bracers that have a chance to deal 1000% thorn's damage on being hit.

Charged up from provoke is whats melting everything. Thorns is lackluster no matter how much you have.

I 100% disagree, I took provoke off my toolbar just to prove that its not the main move thats doing my damage, my main dmg is from iron skin+reflective skin along with the thorns.

How did you manage to make the reflective skin work?

Here's my char: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/LetsHunt-1996/hero/43872555
I am doing the same build idea as you, but I cannot make reflective skin actually work on mobs. Works on players in the proving ground thing and melts people, but I have never seen the effect work on a mob.

It's a bug with Reflective. It's multiplying in the neighborhood of 2,000% not 200%. Simple math people.

What is your total thorns damage? I am running a similar build, but I don't crit for that much...I'm suspecting you have a lot more thorns than me....

My 24k thorns does 400k damage on hit without Iron Skin. With Iron Skin it can crit to 19m.

Yeah I have like 14k thorns, does like 7 million crits at its highest with iron skin....so that is the trick, I need re roll some more thorns damage on my gear....either way I'm tearing through T3 with relative ease....so I'm happy.

My Thorns gear is similar. I don't like the shield, I have bad luck with Provoke. Enemies I provoke will either spend the duration to 're position' their self, or just stand there.

I'm pretty sure there was a blue post a weekish ago that warned everyone not to build around thorns or anything because it's bugged on Crusader right now.
