First death on console!
« on: 05 April 2018, 09:57:46 »
There you go, folks, it has happened! :)

I am playing a Bone Charmer, more or less following Poinas' guide from the internet, a really fun class!

I was waay too pretentious making my way up to Typhon, because the class really owned everything up until then, but i had 0 life/energy resistances and that was my doom. Brought him down on my second try by playing a bit smarter and raising my resistances, but the orb drops really sucked :/

Thought I would share this uninteresting story, sorry guys :D

at least you know how and where you died.. i played my thunderer just recently and saw he has 1 death count.. I'm in act 2 epic but i usually don't die that early.. and i really don't remember how i got that one death.. i don't drink anymore so it's probably a case of playing very tired or very sleepy.. either way i have 1 death and i don't know how and when it happened  :(

interesting experience :D

i am way too spoiled because of PC, where i always used the defiler to remove the death penalty, among other things, not to mention i always had equipment prepared for my class, but now on console i am starting from scratch and using what drops, so i have to make the most of it :D

Just be more careful next time.  I know Poinas' Pwning with Spirit guide was nerfed in AE, but I don't know how that might affect the Bone Charmer one.

Will do, ty :)

Decided not to try and farm typhon for better loot, but to move on to act 4 (even though it's my least favorite act) and get to epic as soon as possible :)

is the console version AE though? i think i read somewhere it doesn't have the boar snatcher, suggesting it's possibly TQ+IT only.. Bobinho11 can you check what circle of power says?

if it's AE i believe it's still good with resist reduction instead of harrowing.. and then later on monster lure, call of the hunt, unearthly power, and study prey spamming.. but it will need some farming.. if it's me though, i think I'll ditch strength

Doesn't make sense botebote77.  Why update the game to AE and then go back to the original unbalanced version for consoles?  Anyway I checked the order page via Game and it definitely says Anniversary Edition for the Xbox.

Any recommendations on another class?was planning to make a templar next, based on damage reflect :)

what does circle of power say first?

and if it's me, I'll try to make it good anyway with some twists of my own

don't be bound to what other people say what is good or not.. especially if you're an experienced gamer yourself :)

edit: just so it doesn't get misinterpreted, that's not a knock on you medea.. and when i said other people , that includes me  ;D

Screenie of the skill you asked about:

And you are right of course, but i never tried out this class before :) but experimenting myself is the best way to learn.

that's AE then.. that's good and here's hoping the bugs get fixed and ragnarok comes soon :)

my suggestions then:
monster lure but you need it maxed and you don't need it much in normal (lvl 1 is useless)
reduced resist instead of harrowing but you also don't need it in normal
get some CDR (about 65%) and you can make call of the hunt and unearthly power permanent.. herbal remedy will take some of the HP regen penalty from unearthly power.. if you get high CDR, you get big attack speed boost for ternion
maxed flush out
again, i don't think you need much strength because of monster lure
forgot to add: attack damage converted to health.. the base skill of unearthly power helps with some mana regen (forgot the name)

what? lol i thought you were following Poinas pawning guide.. that's ternion.. well then if you're a bow user that's str/dex

CDR is cooldown reduction

edit: i have a bonecharmer using spear but secondary is bow.. I'll see if i can bring myself to play it again and upload a video.. maybe you'll get some ideas

I mentioned Poinas's guide botebote77.  I know the guide got nerfed with AE and didn't know if the same nerfs would apply playing a Bone Charmer.

I used Irma2's Bone Charmer guide when I played my a few years ago.  One of my few toons to actually finish the game.  ;D
