1.08: Rise of Archons

festering wood
weeping hollow
halls 3-2-1
fields


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


Yeah cursed hold is good but it became too draggy.

More refine route will be festering ->hall 3-> Cursed hold-> Fields (for kw). Weeping hollow can be added for the additional xp.

Yo, XFactor, add me in-game.

I'm still working on my Archon video guide so it'll be great if you can put in your two cents whenever applicable (I'll credit you of course). Plus, it'll be nice to record some sample group Archon runs.

Also @jenpeezey, if you see this, too, add me because it'll be great to include you as well.

(I should have open space on my friends list, but if you can't get through, let me know and I'll do the adding when I get back from work)

It still seems fine to me, although if it got a buff it wasn't a huge one. Some of the skeleton clumps were huge, though, so I think if the game decides to put a clump in there they are a lot bigger. It was always the best monster density in act 1, anyway, so I wasn't surprised it didn't change much. Only ran it twice though, so I'm no expert.

I'm only good for "what not to wear" segments, though. ;-)

Stacy and Clinton would find my Tal Rasha armor absolutely dreadful.

btw, test out storm armor.. im finding with the increased density storm armor offers faster clears + life steal - the loss of armor doesnt really matter because you have more mobs to proc lifesteal from and you clear faster with SA than EA imo... just opinion and "feels" havent timed my runs yet.. but running scramble or ReactA definitely feels like much quicker clears

Okay at this rate I may actually run out of space on my friends list.

Time to do some spring cleaning when I get back!

You'd think this being the "archon patch" that they would have fixed the town portal bug. :-)

@XFACTOR - So I think I am missing something here. You mention several times to aim for 2 aps for LL reasons. I thought that Archon builds did not need to worry about aps. Is this just for the few seconds outside of Archon? Or does it have more of an impact than I understand.

Archon Empire is coming, but MC got virtual immortality with TP/safe passage.

IAS is one of hte easiest ways to get massive dps boost, so you are going to have it anyway, but ya he was talking about for LL procs.

yea i actually dropped my 6/6/6 trium vs my CM source... IAS all day.. @ 2.51 APS in archon now heh. lost 11k dmg gained 5.5k HP and 1% protection.

imo if you have a badass chants its worth the slight dmg loss (depending on how good your trium is, mine was quite good but i dont mind losing 11k dmg at these dps lvls)

edit
also losing 11k dmg isnt that big of a deal since you get the 8% boost to shock pulse.. so for those rare times when archon drops being @ 2.51 aps is awesome for LL and the 8% dmg boost is pretty nice for that lame, high proc spell ^_-
