Diablo® III

1.08: Rise of Archons

With Archon hell breaking loose, I'm inviting all newborn Archons or Archon wannabes to post any Archon related queries in this thread. Queries can be for various Archon builds, farming routes or even gear checks. I'm not the best Archon by far but I do like to share my knowledge with our lovely wiz community.

Ideal stats for Archon (unbuffed):
- 2aps (LL user)
- 50cc
- 700AR
- 3500armor
- 45k life

*LS is debatable but one with no LS should try to stack at least 1 of the following defensive stats:
>4000armor
>55k health pool
>800AR
Basically, EHP should be above 500k mark.

Gear checks:
- State your budget
- MP you're looking to farm in
- Link to your profile / dprog page

Can I invite you for runs?
- Of cause you can! Just hit me up in game and I'll accept your request as long as friend list is not full

Can I contribute advice / feedback to this thread?
- Yes you can as long as post is not offensive :) Will be great if fellow experienced Archonians come forward and share your tips as well!

Have fun in the new patch & may all godly items start dropping for you :D

Those were ideal stats. Something to work toward but shouldn't stop you from having fun.

I've been doing Halls 1-3 then Weeping Hollow then Whimsy and I haven't dropped out of archon. It's about the same exp as my act 3 run in about the same amount of time.

just finished a run with my archon guru xfactor, a1 mp10

route

festering wood
weeping hollow
halls 3-2-1
fields

good density yes, love it. bad drops still

multiplayer made mp10 a joke due to monster hp nerf.

rise of the archon indeed

Sorry for the late reply.. was doing archon runs with pich.

@uhzeez: Your set is ok for low mps farming but you do need to work on CC and Vit. Since you have long way to go for plevel, i suggest you to work on the following priority:

1st - stack cc till at least 45 after buffed (will help in getting you back into archon form)
2nd - stack vit so that you can hit 40k life pool. Get your vit from chest piece and swap in amethyst into helm. You can go full time party mode on mp4 and below for that extra xp.
3rd - Once you feel comfortable with mp4, start working on AR and swap to a faster attack speed weapon for extra dps.

All depend on your budget as you move on. Hope this is helpful :)

No Cursed Hold? On PTR it was fine for density. Did it change???

Three important questions :

1) Which button do I hold down for pew-pew lasers?
2) How do I change the skills on my bar? :(
3) Can I dye my archon some color other than purple?

1- right click
2- On archon mode you get a new set of skills, and you can't use the old ones until you run out of Archon time.
3- no you can't, but the beam changes its color depending on the rune you are currently using.

While you hold your mouse button down for pew-pew lasers, you make the sound effect.

Dye the whole archon? You'll have to ask the design team about transmogrify for 3D models. ;-)
