Getting back into XL Ultimative, what's the best class to go solo?

Post by tyranius on Tue May 06, 2014 4:11 pm

Hi there, I'm trying to get back into Median XL, figured I'd go with the newest version - XIV. The thing is, this time I'm going at it alone [had a friend to help me last time] so I'm looking for the class most fit to go at it solo. Saying the class and a build suggestion is fine too.

Thanks in advance.

Lighting/cold sorc, pros: insane boss killer, easy and safe to farm, later walk in TA and dunc like a boss. Cons: need crafting. Stuck in fauzt, but u can resp to psn and use psn set (easy to get) anytime.

Skill: max icequeen, warp armor, witch blood, 16 pts familiar, 1-10 cold elem and frigid sphere, choose thunderstone or tempest to max or 1 pts, up to u. Choose early gear from docs, sr i resp to light cold at dest so i dont know 'bout this. Later change your weapon and armor to ilvl 99 rare, the rest use honorific. Basically u can follow bass2mouth's unholy casterdin guide in gearing part. Use tempest/ abyss/ stf to train and controll crowd, abyss and ts to f*ck boss. Hope it helps. Gl and hf.
P/s sr i can't edit with my java phone, have to doublepost Very Happy

Summoner necro is a good choice. By the second act, your summons can be immune to basically everything except physical, and can lay waste to everything. And they mainly cost gold to make them viable.

Necromancer is the best option indeed. But not a Summoner Necro -for the god sake!  Hitting a Wall 
Yes, use summons, but only to buff U or tank for you... Damage is to be dealt best with an unique crossbow supported by Fire totems. Pure summoner is totally unable to do most of the ubers... and that's what this game is all about -doing ubers for charms first of all...  Exclamation  Crossbow Necro will take U to the end game content in no time  Wink  -while summoner ..well, NEVER!  Razz
I trust U will use alrady available skills for the life boost and life leech plus the fire damage and maybe the Slow... Anything beyond that is just an eye candy... (bearing in mind summons and fire totems as stated above)
..easy peasy  Whistling

I noticed. It's an honor!

And I'm pretty sure there was a guide that showed summoner necros doing ubers. It's perfectly viable.

I'm sure U're pretty referring to some guide instead of the actual experience... Wanna see the video wild killing the Quov Tsin with a viable summoner  Eh? 
..don't get me wrong -been there for several days just to prove I've failed in proving the mod wrong by thinking summoner rocks  Booty Shake

I used to always choose summon nec in the past, but this mod changed me Laughing. So hard to do ubers as we can't tell them to atk this not that or protect char not to go away :lol:And if u said it mainly costs gold then may be u haven't bring it to fauzt, even TA is a pain as the most important aura-bringer die in 1-2 hits with 400-500% minion life. summon nec can be viable in main act but for uber he sucks without another char getting him some decent gears. May be it's just me, I played a summon nec back in 2012 v4 and afaik ultimative is harder.

I made a summon necro guide and I'd have to say it's a great build *until* you start doing ubers, as only the easy ones are doable in any realistic amount of time**. The nice thing about them is you can have nothing in terms of gear, play casually, and still make it deep into the game before having to respec, however just know that you will eventually have to respec to complete the other ubers. If you enjoy a summoner type build, you can always respec to a totemancer with full caster gear, however I found it easier to respec to an xbow necro as I found the gear was fairly similar to my old summoners.

**to be perfectly fair to the build, I never bothered farming for perfect SU gear so I really don't know what a perfect summoner is capable of. Basically, the summoner moves so slowly compared to every other build out there, it can get quite boring, which is the main reason I gave up on him.
