I'm lvl 53, just started Hell-- about halfway through act I. I'm finding some elite packs that I'm still dying a ton on, which is fine-- it's fun-- but I've been using the following build:
but I really miss the knockback/stun from LtK as it seems that there is no way for me to crowd control aside from running and letting them whack my air ally.
That said-- has anybody tried combining Deadly Reach with the Hand of Ytar rune on Lashing Tail Kick? The way I view it: Lashing Tail Kick an elite or group of elites from a distance, then whack at them with Deadly Reach until they get close, run, do again until dead.
I really can't see myself playing without LtK and either the stun rune or the enhanced knockback, but maybe I am just playing the wrong way. I want to start playing now how I will need to play once I reach inferno so I don't have to learn a new build once I reach 60.
Also: PS to anybody trying to find sweet weapons... I was able to get two 450 DPS one handers off the AH for 50k apiece with the -10 levels attribute so that they can be used at lvl 50, and I think this is often an overlooked way to get awesome DPS while going from 50-60. I see these lasting me to 60.
