Ran 3x Archon (4th was WD) today. Gained nearly a level during the A1 MP5 run. Archon uptime was around 76% of the total playtime... more or less. I feel multiplayer archon is going to be the wizard revival thingy this patch... so this thread title is the most appropriate ever.... thnx OP :D
I'm also looking for other archons out there.... 4-man decimation is real good fun... lasers FTW ^^

You have a really nice archon but those stats are not required AT ALL in coop. monsters have trivial damage and hp to laser through now. 4 400K medium defended archons wouldn't even get touched so whats point of all that ehp?

@Aimless: True true that mid tier archons are viable in party games but not everyone is into group play ya? A decently balanced archon is still needed for soloing on high mps. That being said, I've built my set just to troll eric's glassy non ls version. Back then there are no bull!@#$ like RD down time and nerf to monster health / dmg. Game is getting easier but that doesn't stop us from upgrading within our budget. That's the main point of this game isn't it? Never ending gearing for perfection...
I guess. Thats not how it was advertised was supposed to be brutal and mp system too.. till they nerfed it too... I question the point of ungrading for nothing but to each his own - anyway.. just wanted call attention to much lower stats can roll in coop.
sure! but my friend list is full now. Gonna remove some inactive friends :\
I do, but not a old school player.. :)
How do you guys reach such high DPS?
Can you give me some gear advice on increasing my DPS to 80k unbuffed without sacrificing EHP?
Preferably i want to be at 80k unbuffed using a Shield.
Im unbuffed at
49 DPS with Shield
800++ All resist

it really comes down to whether you want all out dps or balanced ehp with dps
as far as gearing goes, high dps ones are truly high end gears, there's really no other way. buffs can only do so much (scoundrel with buriza/cold blooded, party buffs)
all out dps is pretty easy to attain, it's the ehp with dps that's hard
Add me if you have the room. Always looking for new people to farm with. I do mainly MP10 and MP10 Uber farming, but don’t mind doing whatever level.
I have tried LL a couple times and it just doesn’t seem to fit with my play style. I still like the WW/Archon Hybrid build more. Even with 1.86 APS it doesn’t seem to make a difference to me.
Suggestions on my build/gear please (Updated in my profile). Thus far I have had no problem surviving on MP10 solo or group. Not sure how good my offhand is either lol.
@lufie: Woah you're playing HC and to be honest, I have very little knowledge on HC market.
Generally on your gear choice:
- You did really well stacking genuine EHP but problem is the low CC which afftect both your refresh rate and dps.
- Your build and gears look like at all out defensive setup (healing blade, LS weapon, BM + sheild). I can understand this being in hardcore but in order to push your dps further, you really need to go for a high avg dmg, int, vit + cc source. If need be, lower your mp level and slowly gear up along the way.
archon is about killing fast and moving forward. once you've met a formidable foe that will drain you of your uptime, that mp may be too high for you.
nothing drains an archon faster than meeting an elite or champ when you just newly activate archon in high mp :(
Void carried me yesterday on Act I MP10.
At one point I just sat AFK in melee range of mobs while Void beamed them down. I assisted by taking up space and Archon still stayed on.
I had 99% uptime because I only run 12% movement speed. 1% downtime was when I waddled out of range and couldn't get my assists.
