The concept is to stack as much fear as possible, up to the max possible of 32.8% This well outstrips any other form of crowd control you can stack without gimping your other stats too much. EF, Tal Rasha's and the SoS/MGF are all solid items while the Star isn't a must have, it still helps.
>The choice of the Tal Rasha's helm is so we can have fear without losing crit chance which happens with both Zuni Vision and Visage of Giyua.
>Thus we need SoS to maintain Zuni 4-set, otherwise MGF is the obvious pick for this.
How am I playing this?
-Throw a jar of spiders to attract monsters and activate vision quest, then position for bears (back to impassable terrain, 45% angle where possible) and burn your mana as monsters charge in.
-Then we switch to acid cloud, a few doses will get the monsters scattering, take this opportunity to get some more spiders out to reset vision quest and get your mana back up.
-Fear will eventually wear off, and the monsters will return to a fresh wave of bears. Rather than spamming acid cloud like classic ac/bears, instead we're cycling it and using acid cloud to mitigate incoming damage when we need it. The high fear proc will interrupt a lot of big hitting wind up attacks meaning we don't have to dodge.
-The fetishes are in the build because I hadn't finished fleshing this out and I didn't need the slots. But I found they would body block savage beast attacks for me from off screen saving me some hassle and so they stayed. I'll test this in somewhere like keep depths as well to see if the suicide bombers can be persuaded to go for the fetishes as well.
The build is new for me, so there's likely plenty of kinks I haven't come across yet but it was a cheap way of trying the classic procdoc style of play. How cheap you say? All up the 4 pieces only cost me around 1.5mil, I didn't shop around for these, just grabbed the first items I saw. Fear is considered a trash stat so these items are generally pretty cheap. If you like the build, you can splurge on the EF and mojo.
Anyway, let me know what you think. If you like it, thanks! If not, blame PaulNg (nothing personal buddy). :D
