The extra item chance from the trash is where its at. Do not bother doing the whole act on higher MP though, some areas, including the key area, just don't have the monster density to make it worth it.
Is it really that cheap for a 90-380 triumviarte?
Plus, Should I replace my pant>Inna's and Chest > Tal Rasha's?
The best i have found for ultra fast archon refreshing is ww/df with most of my cm gear, so hitting a cc and ias breakpoints( like 45-50%cc and either 2.51 or 2.74 aps), but this is at a cost of dps at my income level, yeah no trifectas.
Im doing some testing with it as this style has some benefits, but i need to really test efficency.
Could anyone tell me what the standard alkaizer run wp are and what should be some efficent clear times at around mp 3?
ps: yeah the best part of this style is that u can actually use archon on multiplayer, as long as there are no other archons or very hight dps toons that melt the trash before ur twisters get a chance to proc enough cm to refresh.
11/06/2012 01:18 PMPosted by ShelendilI prefer Improved archon and Diamond skin over Teleport. Forked lightning is the best damage for no ap cost, but you can also try using this combo if you're on sufficiently low MP: Disintegrate - chaos nexus, Diamond skin - prism, and Storm armor - power of the storm. Alternatively, drop Familiar for a damaging spell.
Haha I may jump in to make a serious response. Even in MP2, a reflect rare with 4M HP will reflect 400K damage to you. Suppose you have 90% mitigation (5K armor 900 AR), that's still 40K real damage to you. Four minions with 1M HP each will also reflect 40K real damage. To counter that 80K damage with 40K HP pool asks for 40K life regen before you kill yourself. With 2K LAK you need to find 20 trash mobs for that pack without taking any additional damage. Good luck!
Reflect is annoying and even with LS at 3% you still cannot mitigate it all if you run into a elite pack. I have a LS weapon that I do put on for reflect mobs, but LAK will do just fine for everything except reflect mobs. I did around 10 runs of key run at MP5-MP7 yesterday, and got couple nice legend 95% of the time I used the LAK weapon.
Bookmarked. By the way I've seen twitch wizards sometimes farm using this build:
Where Energy Armor Pinpoint Barrier can be changed to Storm Armor Shocking Aspect, or the Scramble rune. Is there any reason why you use Ray of Frost instead of Electrocute Forked Lightning? Since I believe the Forked Lightning will be a good AOE spell as well as helping to reset the cool-down with Critical Mass.
Hey eliminator, in the search for the most efficient XP build, have you tried non-Archon builds?
There is another post right now where basic idea is you can drop blizz/hydra and walk away while trash mobs die (similar to tornados from WW barbs), and since ur not archon, you can use wormhole to traverse much faster than archon teleport.
