High defense

Post by laogan on Fri Jan 03, 2014 5:44 am

Hi all,

Im new to this game and have been looking around the forums and been seeing people mentioning that their defense is in the 200-500k ranges. I am currently playing a bowazon and i only see my defense at 23k with 9k life (due to the talent that gives me life with gems.) I am not sure how u guys can achieve such high def ratings. Can you guys roughly share how u guys achieve such high armor and life? I been farming destruction chaos sanctuary (only 1 i can farm as in K3KBA i die instantly in destruction and in terror i keep having problem getting the totems).

Getting to such amount of defense is pretty easy with some characters. Bowazon however, don't rely on defense to survive. In fact, most people use ectasic frenzy ,wich set your defense to 0, for the dmg and speed it gives. It's pretty much impossible to achieve such high def with a bowazon, you need to run and kill faster than you are killed. If your main goal is to achieve such defense, you could respec into spear zon, because she have huge def bonus from her passive.

TL:DR The best defense is attack.

Thanks for the reply gg2. But with no defense at all, it seems that any range attacks on me basically brings me down and i still cant progress out of chaos sanctuary. Any idea how we can deal with that?

Try not to get hit too much, with your skill paragon and around 10k life you should be able to handle a few ranged hits , dodge others and stay out of range :)thats how i did at least ! Hehe you can almost kill everything out of your screen as a bowzon

Its mostly a don't get hit situation. Utilize your environment to control angles of attack, try to pull only what you can handle at once. Funnel and try to keep enough room to sidestrafe/circlestrafe projectiles. Maybe even utilize a lolsummon to draw an initial volley for a chance to poke/draw safely. Just slowing down in general to avoid frustration's negative effects on playing ability helps.

10k HP is a nice buffer. Takes ~800 damage to put you into hit recovery. If you have poor FHR it becomes impossible to avoid the other projectiles after the first connects so that is also worth consideration.

Utilize your surroundings, kite into choke points, etc.

Also, gear with Damage Reduction or Life when Struck help a bit with this as well.
