On higher MP levels....it just isn't reflect damage that gives you trouble while running high dps Archon......
I am talking about his current GC....500kDPS build that he probably runs on MP 5-6 for fast leveling. I am sure reflect causes him large issues.
LS weapon has more value with high MP levels dealing with Molten/Knockback/etc etc etc.
Just having the 1.5% alone just doesn't cut it on the MP 9-10 especially.
I actually like my weapon, I spent 500m on it and it serves me exceptionally well. I'd rather pay 500m for my weapon that grants me the ability to run at high MP levels with my friends than throwing 1-2b on a weapon that lacks LS.

^all good points but cm wiz reigns supreme at high mp. If I wanted to farm high mp, all I have to do is swap in a chantodos set and bt pants.
Kinda pointless trying to optimize archon to farm high mp. On top of that, high mps are terrible in terms of legendaries and loots

If I were to facetank, I would just go cm. I bought a set of gear for that pretty cheaply.
Lol you didn't know this? I thought it was common knowledge
It all depends on your build and DPS.
After extensively farming both MP3 with Archon:Teleport and Scramble, and now exclusively farming MP7 with Improved Archon, I can say that MP7 easily gives me more legs. However, I have 533K DPS, so I can farm MP7 at a pretty good clip.
It's all dependent on your DPS and build to determine your own personal farming MP.

In choosing a weapon do I just always go for the highest black dps that I could afford?
I see in other threads to get a sword because of attackspeed while some say to get a mace/spear for higher average damage, etc. etc.
Can somebody explain this in detail? Weapon Selection
Don't know if archon beam has tic breakpoints like twister.
I was a CM/SNS wiz before so any help from the archon department will be much appreciated.
I completely agree, a life steal weapon is a necessity to farm higher mp with archon.
with proper gear it is possible to farm mp9-10 in archon comparable to top cm wizard.
can someone here with around 500k+ dps show how to facetank'ed RD packs on mp5 or up without a lifesteal weapon and using storm armor scramble rune?
I just wanted to clear something, i myself am having trouble facetanking RD's if i drop blood magic. For most of us that had already known, archon's most efficient way to farm on Mp's are:
-where we facetank'ed everything using scramble + teleport
-archon up-time must be 99%
*if you guys so ever proclaimed that RD nerf will resolve LS problems, that's not a proper solution coz if we waited for reflect shield to wear off it will also cost us valuable time,hence less efficiency.
*if we cant face tank'ed them, and kite till we regain hp's, we're also losing efficiency.
oh and i almost forgot ^_^ pickupradius is also one of a valuable thing. btw, im picking up 250k gold per run (16mins alkaizer run). without pickup rad , i think it's about almost nothing XD
What advice ppl need???. hurpy durpy 24 MS max out CD CC weapon dam and hold down left mouse button...zzzzzz. crap has never changed except when CM's turned u onto shock armors as opposed to exciting CM alwasy in evolution with break points and delicate balancing act of cc ias and mitigation.
All intelligent wizzys play CM.
