Hey all, i've recently DL'd this mod, and i JUST got my first char thru norm last night. (damn do you make it hard to get to norm baal) I've really enjoyed it thus far and the challenge level keeps me coming back in a way that endless baal runs never could.... props for making this mod first and foremost.


anyhow, on topic, i've always loved hydras. LOVE hydras. i know theyre not the greatest summons in the world but they get the job done in style. i noticed that now they have a synergy with warmth and enchant now, and that got my brain working. I'm thinking that i could synergize hydras with enchant and a bow so i can not only buff the hell out of my party (ar and FD) but kill things on my own AND have hydras to boot. would this be viable? if not, what can i do to improve it?

keep in mind gear is limited to what i find on the ground.

Skills:
20 hydra
20 chant
20 Fire Mastery
20 warmth
rest into whatever.
1pt into all the essentials.

Gear:
here's where im really stuck, in terms of what kind of gear im looking for... i understand that there's a set of gloves with a multishot 0skill.... those seem mandatory, but other than that, what types of bows am i lookin for?
i wont be doing a ton of physical damage, so LL should be near worthless, as should ML, thoughts?
i was thinking +skills and MDR/PDR with as much IAS as i can field. suggestions?

Merc: either a tanky one or a A3 fire one for -res. leanin towards a3.

i look forward to andappreciate any and all non-troll(and some trollin if its in good taste :P) responses.

thanks

TLDR; hydras, enchant and a bow. yay or nay?

The gloves are called gravepalm - and yep, they were designed with your build (and similar) in mind:

Gravepalm
+10 to Energy
+10 to Strength
+10 to Dexterity
+10 to Energy
+100-200% Damage to Undead
+100-200 to Attack Rating Against Undead
+140-180% Enhanced Defense
+20% Increased Attack Speed
+1 to Multiple Shot (OSKILL)

Bow's to consider would be:

Ravenclaw & Kuko Shakaku (fires exploding arrows for splash dmg goodness)
Final Justice:
+400-450% Enhanced Damage
+50% Increased Attack Speed
9-12% Life Stolen per Hit
9-12% Mana Stolen per Hit
Adds 250-500 Fire Damage
Adds 250-500 Cold Damage
-10% to Enemy Fire Resistance
-10% to Enemy Cold Resistance
+3-4 to Immolation Arrow (Amazon Only)
+3-4 to Freezing Arrow (Amazon Only)
+5-7 to Enchant (Sorceress Only)
+5-7 to Chilling Armor (Sorceress Only)

Hellrack - the lvl82 uniqu col crossbow would probably be outstanding endgame as it gives you oskill immolation arrow.

There are also lots of runewords that may fit in with your build. Check http://blue.arimyth.com for a full item list.

Ask on the trade forum and you can probably get some of these items for free or a few pgems. White items with +good skills are also a great way to build up some gear as you may stumble across a +3 poison strike wand that would really help a high level character that has a lot of powerful gear to trade.

Another good bow would be Eaglehorn since it has both multi shot 3-4 and guided arrow 2-3. I had a sorc once minus the hydras that used guided arrows energy shield and chant. Oh the fun i had hunting bots and PKs on Bnet nothing like a sorc teleporting every where and arrows flying every which way.

You cant beat exploding arrows IMO, no need to worry about AR and bosses cant block them unlike guided/multishot. Kuko + razortail belt gives 100% piercing arrows, fire 1 arrow into a mob and it will explode 3 or 4 times, dealing 4* the damage to each enemy. GG!

Holy craft is only good for physical dmg, not elemental.
