basicaly with my gear Onehand is alot more faster even if I have 10k less dps without skorn. Pickup radius do real magic with GI and GF

good overview about skorn. Helps to make a desicion between skorn and onehand + thing. Wait for one hand vid :)

Thanks for the vid man. Lot of people probably reassessing their build now that 1.0.5 and the buff to monsters is impending.

Hi just watched some of the vid.

You know you can stack both pickup radius and attack speed while using a skorn to get the best of both worlds.

Also If your interested in some feedback on your play I think you could do well with some build (drop ghost bomb) and micro (stutter step) improvements.

im not using ghost bomb and actualy its not that great. anyway thanks for feedback anyway as I said you can stack up Pickup radius and attack speed but that would cost more then xxx milions of golds - I bought some cheap things for 11mil to have alteast 14 yards. but for most effective build for GI u need atleast 20-24.

So if u are rich - skorn > onehand. If u are not that rich - onehand > skorn

how do you get 42 mil exp per hour? oO And how did you manage that killspeed with Acid Cloud. I have crit% + crit dmg gear and couldn't do that so fast.

GF still works pretty well because sacrifice + pride rune is pretty necessary. Results in a good amount of globes still. GI.. well.. yeh, not as good for us avg folk, I assume it would still be pretty godly for the top .005%

Nope, totally useless. Even with 150k unbuff dps.

Sure GF will work, but those globes are gonna come from enemies. So 0s cooldown dogs is the only way i see that being effective.

Lacuni + witching hour + ring = 1.2-1.3 as. Thats all you need. And if you hate the attack speed then ur using skorn incorrectly and its not for you. Use more dots/summons bro, its that simple.

A lifesteal skorn is invaluable, and improves ALL of the following skills:

Sacrafice
SB - Manitou, Phantasm, well of souls
GoTD - rain of corpses, eels, desperate grasp
Soul harvest - vengeful spirit
Spirit walk - severence
Zombie bears
WoZ - unrelenting grip, pile on
Locust swarm - pestilence, searing
Pyrogeist
Acid cloud - corpse bomb, slow burn

Prob missing some more but im sure you get the point. If not simply ask me why it makes them better and i would be happy to explain.

You should start to replace your gloves and ammy with Crit Dmg instead because I noticed you are using bears. Atk spd is not as important in a bear build unless you're running corpse spider widow makers for mana regen.
