So Caltrops

Posts: 778
Didnt think i would use, but the Rune that roots enemies in place for 2 seconds has just been so GREAT, that snare is just nessasary if not using any other stuns/slows. Ill see if i change as i progress, but even giving my brother's barb a "fallback" point where he knows he will have a 2 second window is great!

I honestly dont see how u can solo without it, maybe in groups obviously not as a "necessity" but man, in solo i like need it, esp for those mobs that go invisible that you cant target till they get close, i snare them, vault then fire away!

It's probably going to remain in my build forever. It is just that good.

I also like Impale with the stun + knockback, it seems to work 90% of the time rather than 65% and is incredably useful vs bosses/elites that are not immune to it.

On higher difficulties, you'll need smokescreen instead of caltrops, or risk dying from vortex mobs. But on normal it's great.

Caltrops has saved my hide quite a few times so far. My initial planning did not include it in any of my builds but I've since changed my tune.
