Have you ever used punisher and thought "if only I could spam this"?

Well now I will show you a way that you can spam it.
It isn’t a new Toraja runeword, it isn’t some high level unique.
It is a low level runeword that has been there all along.
I am to referring to the bow runeword "Shockwave"

All you need is a 'Sol' rune and you can laugh at punishers spell timer as much as you want.

-Timerless punisher spam
-High poison damage output

-Requires some time crafting
-Can't farm all ubers
-Aiming can be hard with lower densities.

Core item

Level: 27
0-5 Jewels +Sol
100% Chance to cast level 16 Punisher when you Kill an Enemy
+(101 to 125)% Enhanced damage
+(41 to 60) to Maximum Damage
+5% to Poison Spell Damage
(11 to 15)% Chance of Crushing Blow
Slows Target by (11 to 15)%
+(21 to 40) to Energy
+(21 to 40) to Dexterity
This is the item that we must use throughout the whole game.
What we use it for is the 100% chance to cast punisher when you kill an enemy.
We use it to start a massive proc chain of punishers that can get big really quickly if you know how to use it


Unholy Skills

Tainted blood: Leftovers.
The healing is good for when we have superbeast and other times when we need all the regen we can get

Mind Flay: Supermax
It synergises punisher well, including our proc punishers.
It is also will be our skill to deal with immunes.
It can be useful to deal with small mobs that arent worth punishering

Punisher: 15
We will use this to start our proc chain.
15 points is enough to be able to do enough damage with it late-game.

Slayer: 20 points
20 points give Punisher and mind flay 2 extra missiles.
It is also useful for summoning ubers because we can’t us punisher

Dark King: Supermax
The stat bonus is really useful and we have spare points

Neutral skills:

1 point in all prereqs

Rapture: 5 points.
Good for the speed bonus.

Holy Armour: 1 point
Useful for corpse retrieval and cheesing some ubers.

Uber skill:
Superbeast: Supermax
The only choice for any unholy paladin. It increases spell damage and maxes out cast speed.

Challenge reward skills:

Divine apparition: 1 point
Better than blink and jitans gate because of the lower spell timer

Scourge: 1 point
Over 100 points in unholy tree = high life for scourges, even with 1 point.

Charm skills

Huge bonus to defense

Blessed life:
The damage reduction is nice to have

Don't get it from a charm, it has ND, which can interfere with punisher at critical moments.


Strength: Enough for gear
Dexterity: Enough for gear (with dark king you shouldn’t need any)
Vitality: none
Energy: All the rest

Early Gameplay

Early on punisher will only have one missle, so its probably best to play as an unholy caster until you have enough missles to make a good proc chain. If you do so its probably best to change your gear to suit an unholy caster until you get 3 missiles on punisher.
Alternatively you could do whatever you want then respec once slayer has a max level of 20.


Early game:

Look for bonuses to lightning spell damage and phys/mag spell damage, you'll be playing as an unholy caster until you get at least 10 points in slayer.

End game:

Make shockwave in a tier 6 short bow.


The best choice would be a shimmering crafted armour with plenty of +PSD% and +2 skills.
