Bombsin, how stronk?

Post by Zartok on Tue Jul 30, 2013 2:37 pm

Hello everyone, I'm thinking of making a caster of some sort (that is not eledruid/sorc/pala).

The casters I have been thinking about now is:
-Totemancer
-Bombsin
-Casterbarb

*It should be untwink-friendly
*Can compete with other caster
*Fun to play

Guys, any input?

Bombsins got stronger in a way because you can use immolation bomb and nova bomb from rare/crafted claws which will save you a ton of skill points. Those bombs also changed in that you used to only be able to put them at your feet whereas now you can place them at a target point. As far as assassins go they're relatively strong and have some nice cheap gear options like Dar-al-Harb shield runeword (Ix in assassin shields) and the aforementioned crafted claw.

Barbarians get a ton of free spell damage and are incredibly powerful. they also have a lot of built in survivability options in their skills as well.

Totemancers are my favorite of the three. They get a ton of free spell damage from shadows and burning veil which the totems get twice (once from the auras being on you and once from the auras being on them) which makes them deadly, especially fireheart totem. You can pretty easily build them without a single SU which makes them cheap and the high minion count, defense uberskill with built in avoid, life bonus from embalming, and an untimered teleport in bend the shadows aid his survivability greatly. The fact that totems are self firing also enables him to make use of oskills (hailstorm is my favorite but there are other great ones). He is a very strong character but will struggle with certain bosses like laz and astroga due to his minions and totems. Another downside is he is also rather action intensive in that there is always something that you can be doing whether it is casting burning veil, maintaining minion counts, casting your oskill, repositioning yourself and your totems and things like that. It makes for some fun involved gameplay but some don't like that.

Rundown

For an all around fully capable build with the correct gear I have to say go with the bombsin. She can do all ubers if played and built correctly but gearing for them is extremely important as it is for all assassins.

For an offbeat build that is also quite powerful go with the barbarian.

For finger melting command inputting nightmare of a build that can do duncraig with runewords, crafts and TUs go with the necromancer.

Sentries in sin's tree are normal for regular game but sucks hard in uberlevels because of next delay in their explode nova, so as it was mentioned you can try bombs from craft claw / sin's shield: nova bomb and immolation bomb and they do not have any nd but they do not attack before explosion so as you can see they are require something more then brainless strategy to just cast them. So you can use combination of them and other sins's caster skills. Be sure that current caster assassin does not have any guide and gl to find a person who could give good idea/combos/strategy for that build atm.
Caster barb looks badass. Totemancer is limited for ubers. Atm strongest casters are Unholy paladin/ Sorc/ Druid.

Abu, good points about the Bombsin but try not to triple post. You can just edit your original post.
