Diablo® III

Sever Impale/Scatter Build

this remotely intrigues me as this was the basis of my interest in acquiring a 1200+ dps calamity with a socket.

Redelons' build is no longer on his profile from what I saw.

I'm intrigued to see what the actual build looks like and what its damage potential is at MP5+ in a group with a dedicated tank.

If the build looks solid I'd be down to try it with you.

My build is still there!!!! Just used it MP7 last night. Made a few tweaks to it. It's very powerful, just need to put Echoing Blast as Primary Mouse and MfD as a key.

M1: Spike Traps: Echoing Blast
M2. Chakram: Razor Disk
B1: Shadow Power: Gloom
B2: Preparation: Focused Mind
B3: Sentry: Guardian Sentry
B4: Marked for Death: Grim Reaper

Passives: Steady Aim, Perfectionist, Nightstalker

Believe me, I was on MP7 and just decimating everything. White mobs were like 2 seconds to die. Elites maybe 15-30 seconds. Key is to pop Sentry, then Gloom, then prep, then Spike Trap, mark the closest enemy to the trap, while spamming Razor Disk. Keep gloom up and replace traps as they expire, always mark new targets.

The amount of damage I was doing was just sick, it looked like I was a Barb with numbers flying all over the place. I was just amazed myself.

radelon was that mp7 solo or group?

I couldn't play long last night but i did figure out my monk with sever can tank mp7 (full group) without much trouble. I think DH MFD with monk EP/CS will work, might even have to try mp8-9.

if using spike traps, i will bunch MFD+enemies on the trap. will be on a lot this weekend!

Solo without a follower even. Been going without a follower all the time lately. In group its even easier.

Wish I could be on a lot this weekend but of course I'm moving. If u target the MFD to where they r on the trap its just crits galore

okay, i'll do some testing with castablanca/darkcronos and push the mp as high as possible.

i'm thinking high mp group play, with all severs causing chain reactions from MFD/EP.

Works great in group play.... MFD plays well with others.

I would go for the 40% Weapon damage Sever's as that boosts the Ruby the most.
Also, a perfect 25/25% bonus to demons is nice too.

I think mine was a 1126 dps, I just sold an 1109 dps on ah.

If you wanna know the calculation that works with knowing what a ruby will give:

160 x 1.40 (weapon damage %) = 224

Now take the min and the max values from the range and add (224) to both of them.

Add the new min and max values.

Divide that by 2.

Multiply by APS (1.4) and that's your final dps.

1126 dps
533 min - 1075 max
With Marquis Ruby (757 min - 1299 max)
Average is 1028
Multiply by 1.4 = 1439 dps

A 313 dps increase on the Sever
