some tricks i know
making some difficult bosses easy

[start] ice nova Dactyl
[1:43] spellbreaker Fafnir (also works on Dactyl and other bosses)
[2:56] beating secret passage the chicken way

and with this, i will be leaving my gameplay recording for quite a while :(
it was a nice run

Re: Some of my playthroughs - illusionist petmaster
« Reply #31 on: 16 June 2018, 01:57:07 »


start   :  surtr
6:00    :  muspelheim
17:00   :  loki
20:24   :  Olympus portal to Typhon

stats may vary depending on your choice.. how you survive is up to you

pet jewelries are very good for this build
throwing knife is good for spreading CC and reducing resistances
a fair amount of cast speed is needed for traps and knives

despite being a petmaster, this build isn't easy to play.. need a bit quick fingers
had some close calls, i lack practice :)

this is fun to play though.. it doesn't feel like you're playing a petmaster

in xmax, 1st form of surtr is harder than the next 3 forms

(i think i'll add this to the 1st post of my guide, might look better :) )

Re: Some of my playthroughs - TQ tricks part 2
« Reply #32 on: 05 July 2018, 23:47:53 »
part 1 was "how to make some bosses easy".. this time it's "how to cheat without actually cheating".



1:54: secret passage petmaster style (don't let the gate open, summon wolves inside the cage)
5:44: Cerberus (don't let the gate close)
8:33: act 3 demon bull (stay at the bridge)
9:56: act 5 golden boar (same but the boar is smarter because he actually follows you)
11:21: Surtr (again, don't let the gate close)

first one was done in legendary and 2nd to 5th on epic but all these are doable in all difficulties.. my thunderer gear setup is my legendary gear setup but it's still in act 1 legendary so i had to do it on epic.

and yep, Surtr is weak against cold

@Firebrand confirmed volcanic orb can also be thrown at the far edge of your screen even at zoomed view (top view) but requires a clear line of sight so for "gimmicks"  ;D like this, lighting bolt is more dependable.. the recharge though is only 5 seconds without any CDR.. traps too can also be thrown at the far edge of your screen but also requires a clear line of sight.. it fires projectiles though so it can be thrown at an angle if you don't have a good line of sight.. it has no cooldown at ultimate max rapid construction and is much stronger than lightning bolt and volcanic orb when fully maxed.. it's also a pet so you can enhance it with auras and pet buffs.. this trick can also be used against Undead Typhon.. it is just too far from the nearest portal so i did not include it.. to a certain degree, also against Fafnir but he wakes up when you hit him so you have to hide behind the walls should you opt in to this trick, so i think lightning bolt is the only skill for this.. it takes too long so it's best for a full/mostly int toon with 80% CDR

@botebote77

Nice to see you actually played the Esdese build through the end before me  :P

I started it along with my Stonespeaker and ended up liking the latter a lot more, so I focussed on that. Seeing your video also makes me remember why though: these kind of builds are the V8 muscle car version of builds, when it comes to mana. Yes, you get a lot of short-time performance, but any kind of fuel efficiency is nowhere to be found  :))

What does stand out in your video is that your Menhir Wall looks a lot bigger than mine, both in heigth as well as in width. Does the size of the stones actually increase with the number of points invested in it?

you can play stonespeaker but don't ever name her/him esdese-sama.. that's so wrong  ;D

my elemental conversion dreamkiller is a male named Sommelier.. it doesn't match though because my dreamkiller is gear dependent (golden agris + gambanteinn).. Sommelier doesn't need to wear anything at all

menhir wall, doesn't seem like it.. it summons more stones maybe that makes it seem bigger

about mana.. rune and storm seems to have lots of synergies but i haven't thought of this one: reduced energy cost solves ice shard and energy armor problems.. if i did i wouldn't have wasted too many points on dex..i intended to use throwing weapons that's why i have dex.. but the short range is just too dangerous that as early as late act 3 i was having survivability problems.. so reduced energy cost is offense and defense for this build.. I have no problem with mana on this build (-79% energy cost).. I'm used to drinking lots of mana and it can be bought anyway. i remember the early versions of diablo 2 i had to be stingy with mana pots.. for me, drinking lots of mana is better than drinking lots of health pots

there is a downside to this build because of a bug.. ice shard and 300% cast speed don't go well together.. but 299% is OK  ???

did some digging and found this.. this is the exact same thing i experienced

that's why i had to wear an inferior occult ring.. haven't actually tested 299%.. i just assumed that anything less than 300% is OK.. i got mine from 300% to 270+

I think it has to do with generating sooo much ice at 300% casting speed, that some of the frost effects bleed out, affecting the caster. With his core temperature thus lowered, the caster needs some time for his feet to thaw, before he can start running again.

It's like how theoretically at the speed of light mass becomes  infinite: at 300% casting speed the temperature reaches absolute zero. This is why it only happens at 300%, whereas at 299% there is no noticeable impact.

For some reason i suddenly felt the urge to make this video
Don't know the connection
Agnetha is timeless
Hades is not the devil



I forgot to show my items so i just added it at the end

Also, notice that energy armor vanishes from Hades' spell attacks both in his flesh form and spirit form. Energy armor only blocks physical, pierce and bleed, no vit. Pierce is the least likely and it doesn't seem to be DoT so it's most probably physical. And considering that my energy armor blocks 6k+ damage, this means there is also a lot of physical damage on Hades's spell attacks

Spoiler for Hiden:
one reason is because, unexpectedly, i got some good feedback on youtube.. based on my low view counts on my videos, i'm very very very far from being popular and to be honest, i don't want to be.. but for those who have commented, if you're reading this, thank you.. it warms my heart
