I want to do a cast build with a 1hand weapon (but no sorc :d )

Post by Afura on Wed May 14, 2014 3:19 pm

Hello,

I want to do a cast build which uses a 1hand weapon and it should not be a sorc hehe (sounds strange I know^^). First I was thinking about to make an ele druid which I have found in that thread here http://www.medianxl.com/t2850-xi-elemental-druid , but no idea if this build is still doable since the last patch? Scratch 

Do you have any build recommendations for me? That would be great  Smile 

Thank you

You could go with an Unholy Caster Paladin. Although I always prefer a 2 handed staff no matter what caster I use. Pally is great though and you can get Bear Stance on a shield later in the game and stick with some 1 handed scepter/mace options and nice cast rate with Superbeast.

Bear stance locks out ranged skills but yes pally works well cuz of the morphs.

Necros make very nice one handed casters as the casting rate is quite high and there's some very good wands and a wand necro head combo gives you the maximum number of totems. The only downside with them is you have no active casting skill in your skill trees but with brimmstone on rare/crafted circlets and hailstorm on rare amulets you're pretty much good to go. There are a few other nice options as well but those are the best imo.

Derp on bear stance. You do have options for Eagle Stance on some runeword Pally helms(although Vindicate and Tainted Blood work fine).
Necros are just amazing really no matter what build you go with. Versatile bastards.

Problem is, using staves on Necro, Dudu and Sorc means the casting has 25% less frames meaning 25% cast rate compared to any other weapon type. So if you limit yourself to 1h, you're nerfing your cast speed... gotta see if 1h + shield is worth it.

Thx for your answers guys.

An unholy paladin sounds good Smile . For the necro, I still have my old one, I could maybe respec his skills for it.

Ok now I see why a 2hand is better than a 1hand. I thought it would be like in diablo 2 LoD, for example occulus and a shield like spirit which gives you a nice faster cast rate buff. So in median a 2hand is the better choice for cast speed.

I am still thinking about to do that ele druid build Smile

Blood zon is an amazon build right?

1h + shield on sorc isn't really worth it if you're looking for fast spreading...Tested holy wars with boneshield...

Caster barb sounds nice too Smile . I see there are a lot of caster builds, this doesn't make my decision easier  Very Happy 

And what about an elemental druid? Too slow for the endgame?

While browsing in the forum and google I have found a bowzon build. It is said thats perfect for newbies and farming gear.
