[!] Stuck on Act III Hatred [!]

Post by Darkaaja on Sun Apr 28, 2013 8:43 am

Alright so after giving Median XL Ultimative a go I ripped through most of the beginning with ease all the way, until I hit Upper/Lower/Bazaar Kurast. These area's monsters just rip me apart while the previous Act III area creatures are just cows for slaughter. I want to know what is wrong with my assassin that makes her so weak to them.
(After Uploading pics I noticed I had run enabled, I have it disabled while fighting, I know it negates defense.) Here are all the stats/skills/gear I have, please let me know where I can improve.

Spoiler:










I would be grateful for any help Dizzy

Change your weapon with either better claw or TU naginata. Reroll rare amu with dragon egg and then use oil of renewal to get more useful stats +skills/laek/res/life/aa. Do the same with the rings + skill/Aa/res/... The main problem remains your weapon in my opinion. The lack of energy points disregards the energy factor, and makes your spell procs based weapon - useless. The lack of phy dmg on your current weapon weakens/disregards the purpose of % life stolen as well.

Lower kurast is overpopulated.
I dont like it, but people still like it.
I suggest lower the density, but hardcore player said it was too easy.

Problem with lower kurast is that the act 3 forest is unbearable.
So you usually rush the area and hopefully to find the flayer jungle WP.
Then you greet by some bosses.
Just a bit forward, you will get "SURPRISED! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! NO WP FOR YOU!".


Since you have shadow refuge, i think movespeed shouldnt be a problem for you.
If you still die to elemental damage, then you probably want to stack +%max resist for all your TU.

Lower Kurast WP is one of biggest hurdle in act3.
Btw, you might want to open a town portal near the entrance as an insurance.

I would suggest putting 1 point in barrier strike, bugs the mobs rly good + its a nice skill i personaly like it alot, in crowded areas using it prevents most of the melee mobs to hit ya dat much. But as some1 suggested, using TU naginata pwns alot, ull have no probs clearing imo, but all depends on playstyle.

Ok,for all your gear,I suppose you are a melee sin.

and from the shield your holding,I think you like claw,now you need to change your weapon to this

Thanks alot for all this imput. As for getting arcane shards, I already ripped through andy 500 times and I still have two crystals in my stash. And the reason I don't want to go with the nagniata is because Im centering the build on Shield Blocking and high defense. Definatly going to re-roll my amu/rings and change my weapon to another claw.

Your innate skill i think it is bloodbath or something,it is a very good block skill,it just got very short durations,but with sin's high avoid from prefect being skill,you should be able to use two claws

and two claws are not weaker than one naginata,read and watch this,see how powerful a batstriker could be

Thanks a lot but my current skill set is pretty good and since I changed my claw and my amu/rings I actually destroyed act III. Im starting Act IV now
