Interesting use of phalanx. I like the ideas you have, especially with killing king Koth.
Also, i'm not sure if this goes against your principles, but you could temporarily respec to wyrmshot/ghost arrow when fighting creature of flame, cathedral of vanity, akarat, tran athulua, and island of sunless sea.
wyrmshot is just so much easier on certain maps.

You mean like ghost arrow behind the wall to kill stuff ? Smile I do that sometimes, but it won't help with creature of flame, cathedral or even akarat since the range is short. And if you wana get in close range then barage is better. Wyrmshot is usefull in island of sunless sea to detect those invisible enemies or to reach the floating ones. But 1point is enough for that. Plus wyrmshot is kinda slow-ish compared to other skills.

One note you may want to include about Phalanx. The speed of its deployment is based on FCR and not IAS. Many new players don't get this and end up writing off Phalanx as a "bad" skill.

I use phalanx exactly the same way in some of the above mentioned ubers.
Occasionally phalanx cannot reach the crystal ball in CoV. Also the easiest way to spot if Phalanx is hitting the ball is having arrow/throw knife on striking, cause sometimes it hits the Boss or the cleric.
For Duncraig's entrance I use GA to clear a bit then I go in and spam wyrm+barrage. Phalanx does a great job clearing the big rooms, but I find it faster and easier to just kill them by using wyrmshot and barrage.
But many charms can be obtained using Phalanx pretty easily.
Kudos for the guide.

Does it mean through the wall ? Cause i do that too. Ghost arrow up and to the left side before entering main hallways Embarassed.

I had to use search to find what IAS and FCR mean Very Happy i will update my guide soon. And maybe some later. There is still many places/bosses i haven't even tried yet.

Oh i meant the combination of the skills for more targets and range of wyrmshot.
I'm pretty sure i did cathedral of vanity (1-2 tries if i recall correctly) by just running in circles, stutter stepping and firing wyrmshot in every direction. No need to aim wyrmshot that way.
And i lured creature of flame to that empty space his attack can't go through, and cheesed him with GA. Easiest uber next to akarat (summon, back off, wyrmshot, profit).

For azmodan though, i just re-speced to Spearzon, and then back to bowzon..
