Kraken Stance + Overkill barb gear question

Post by Syzygee on Sun Mar 16, 2014 2:18 pm

Hi guys!

It has been ages since I last played MXL:U (V1.13, PLugY 10.00).

I played now for some hours, and crafted a good Kraken stance barb helm with +2 to barb skill lvls. I've used Lion stance so far (str source dmg bonus), but everyone told me back then that Kraken stance if better for multihitting Overkill (I know Stoya made a video guide about Rebound barb, so I tried that yesterday (respecced at Akara  Very Happy ) but I felt that i do less dmg with rebound than overkill (the reason is maybe my gear  Rolling Eyes )

So here is my current gear:

Weapon:

Helm:

Chest:

Ring1:

Ring 2:

Amulet:

Gauntlets:

Belt:

Greaves:

Shield:


My current stats with Kraken stance + 3 Wolves:


Here is the gear of my Bloodmage hireling:

Weapon:

Helm:

Chest:

Belt:

Amulet:

Shield:

Greaves:


So these are what I have now.

What I need are:
- Good skill tree that works well with Kraken stance + Overkill
- Tips on my current gear (what should I change)
- What kind of gear should I look for (stats on the gear like -enemy resistance, +elemental dmg)
- Stats allocation? (currently i have 100 vit, 100 dex, rest is pumped in Strength (old Lion stance based allocation)
- Is Overkill with kraken stance / lion stance / wolf stance can be that good in late game as Rebound with snake stance?

I am now on Act 3, Destruction difficulty.

Sorry for the long post, I tried to give every relevant information about my char.

Thank you guys very much for your helps, tips and replies!

Merc: your ranged offensive = get a merc that tanks for you so either A2 Exemplar or A5 Barb
Boots: Ath/Nih Boots or Crafts either Str/Vit depends if pure yolo offensive or tank
Amulet: try get one with Doom on kill + stats and + targets takes additional dmg if possible
Rings: empyrian bands or try get lvl 30 rings with one skills, usually get them earlygame from dragon   egg hatred
Weapon: Weapon is good mid game, try get SU balanced Axe with 50% bearclaw on kill later
Gloves: Craft see Boots (Quiet/Creepy Shrine)


Stats to look for:
Life Leach
- enemy ress
Str/Vit depending on Built

Upgrade your gear to tier 6...
And that helm is pretty awful, find a new base item and craft a better one, and max your poison resist

It could have +% or flat str, and 350% for tons of defense and some other good shit. Indeed it is good for the beginning, but if he wants a strong char, it is bad.

All i see is low atack rating. Do this overkill skill need no AR (didn't play this build, so not sure) ? If it does, more AR is really needed to hit stuff.
Plus the "upgraded" color shows that you are not using latest version of MXL. Why not ? Was this overkill barb better before patches ?
