[XVc] Akasha - The Scorpion Queen (WIP)

Post by GoDLloyD on Tue Dec 09, 2014 10:29 pm

Introduction
Abbreviations
Synergies
Stats
Skills
Equipment
Other stuff

Introduction:
(Short for now, since it's WIP anyways):
I am currently building a Poison-based onehit assassin using scorpion blade skill

Abbreviations:
SP = Scorpion Blade
EPR = -%Enemy Poison Resistance
PD = %Poison Duration
CtC = %Chance to Cast
SD/PSD = %Skill Damage/%Poison Skill Damage <- I read up a little more on spell damage and how it works, looks like it does work for SP
AR = %Attack Rating
FRW = %Faster Run/Walk
FHR = %Faster Hit Recovery
FBR = %Faster Block Rate
WotS = Way of the Spider

more to come later~

Synergies

Here's a list of things that synergy with our poison damage:

Spell Damage and Poison Spell Damage:
These only synergy with the damage on Scorpion Blade itself (not with the ways or any other source of passive poison damage)

+ x to skill level / assassin skill level:
These synergy with our skills (Scorpion Blade, Maelstrom and the Ways) - NOTE: this DOES NOT increase our SP knives!

Adds x-y poison damage over z seconds:
Scorpion Blade uses Active Poison Damage, this means it will increase our min/max poison damage per second by x/y and our duration by z (check the docs for more info on Poison Damage: http://mxl.vn.cz/doc/ -> Concepts -> Poison Damage Explained)

+ Poison Duration:
This simply increases our total Poison Duration by x%

- Enemy Poison Resistance:
Caps at -100% (for Heroic Bosses up to -199%) and will not actually increase our Poison Damage itself, but instead will decrease the enemy's resistance against it and thus lead to higher damage output

Stats:
Strength - enough for Equipment
Dexterity - enough for Equipment and high Attack Rating and eventually high %block
Vitality - nothing
Energy - rest

Skills:
Remember that it's WIP, it may still change:
Scorpion Blade - SMAX
Way of the Spider - SMAX
Maelstrom - 24 or 30 (something you can divide by 6 since Scorpion blade gains an extra knive every 6 levels)
rest into other ways/perfect being/queen of blades (spread some more poison -NOTE- I am not yet sure if this overrides SB poison damage)

Equipment

early-game
Weapon:

If you can't afford Uniques at the very start, go for Patriot (Eld in throwing knives) or Chrysopelea (Thul in throwing knives) for -%epr

Death Touch (Throwing Knife)

Tier 6
Throw Damage: 43 to 46
One-Hand Damage: 27 to 28
Durability: 8
Required Dexterity: 167
Required Level: 45
Adds Dexterity Damage Bonus: (51/256 per Dexterity)%
10% CtC lvl 29 Scorpion Blade when you Kill an Enemy
+(2 to 3) to Assassin Skill Levels
30% Faster Run/Walk
(171 to 200)% Bonus to Attack Rating
Adds 21-23 poison damage over 6 seconds
-(36 to 40)% to Enemy Fire Resistance
-(36 to 40)% to Enemy Poison Resistance
Socketed: 2

Body Armor:
There is no good Body Armor for poison damage, so we will go for survivability and Rainbowdamage with this one instead:

Jitan's Kamon (Splint Mail)

Tier 6
Defense: (2170-4307)
Durability: 75
Required Strength: 391
Required Level: 49
100% CtC lvl 42 Singularity when you Die
10% CtC lvl 19 Guard Tower when you Kill an Enemy
Adds (241 to 480)-(481 to 960) fire damage
Adds (241 to 480)-(481 to 960) lightning damage
Adds (241 to 480)-(481 to 960) cold damage
+(191 to 220)% Enhanced Defense
Damage Reduced by 10%
Socketed: 6

Well who would've expected that? A character with Weapon Damage using Jitan's Kamon. *Sarcasm off*
10% CtC Guard Tower will help us spread our poison and fire/lightning/cold dmg will take out those poison immunes for us.

Another option might be the Cathedral RW for %PD and high + defense

Helm:
Glowskull (Crown)

Tier 6
Defense: (1742-2628)
Durability: 83
Required Strength: 519
Required Level: 54
1% CtC lvl 12 Unholy Armor on Attack
+(36 to 40)% Bonus to Poison Skill Duration
-(18 to 20)% to Enemy Poison Resistance

+(181 to 210)% Enhanced Defense
Poison Resist +(66 to 75)%
Total Character Defense Plus (27 to 30)%
(18 to 20)% Chance of Uninterruptable Attack
Increase Maximum Durability (46 to 50)%
Socketed: 4

Shield:
Destroying Angel (Small Shield)

Tier 6
Defense: (804-1310)
Durability: 42
Required Strength: 90
Required Dexterity: 199
Required Level: 46
Adds 512-768 poison damage over 5 seconds
+(36 to 40)% to Poison Spell Damage
Attacker Flees after Striking (14 to 15)%
+(121 to 140)% Enhanced Defense
Poison Resist +(46 to 50)%
Socketed: 4

'nuff said.

another good option might be this shield:
Leoric's Legion (Bladed Shield)

Tier 6
Defense: (937-1676)
Durability: 64
(Assassin Only)
Required Dexterity: 353
Required Level: 52
+(36 to 40)% Bonus to Poison Skill Duration
-(23 to 25)% to Enemy Poison Resistance

+(191 to 220)% Enhanced Defense
+(36 to 40) to Vitality
(14 to 15)% Reanimate as: Horror Sorcerer
(14 to 15)% Reanimate as: Burning Dead Sorcerer
(14 to 15)% Reanimate as: Bone Sorcerer

Socketed: 6

Lots of meatshield = more survivability
Class Shield = extra %block = more survivability

Belt:
Wormtongue (Light Belt)

Tier 6
Defense: (757-970)
Durability: 34
Required Strength: 173
Required Level: 46
(131 to 150)% Bonus to Attack Rating
Adds (301 to 600)-(601 to 1200) poison damage over 6 seconds
(17 to 19)% Life stolen per Hit
+(131 to 150)% Enhanced Defense
+(36 to 40) to Dexterity
Socketed: 2

again really nice poison damage added and even quite good duration, this is gonna help us out very well.

Gloves:
Vilehand (Leather Gloves)

Tier 6
Defense: (174-185)
Durability: 25
Required Strength: 64
Required Level: 43
+(18 to 20)% Bonus to Poison Skill Duration
Adds (201 to 400)-(401 to 800) poison damage over 8 seconds

+(18 to 20)% to Poison Spell Damage
Poison Length Reduced by (22 to 25)%
Socketed: 4

Boots:
There seems to be no great option for boots, so either go for stat boots like lion paw or make yourself some honorific boots and pump them with %res and if you haven't hit yet -%epr, otherwise TCD and other stats for survivability

Jewelry:
For Rings there are 3 options, my favorite one:

Xorine's Ring
Required Level: 80
15% CtC lvl 9 Punisher when you Kill an Enemy
(51 to 100)% Bonus to Attack Rating
Adds 175-613 poison damage over 7 seconds
Poison Resist +(31 to 40)%
(11 to 15)% Chance of Uninterruptable Attack

The other one for stats is obvious:
Empyrean Band
Required Level: 40
1% CtC lvl 7 Singularity when you Kill an Enemy
(3 to 5)% Bonus to All Attributes
Increase Maximum Life and Mana 10%

(51 to 100)% Extra Gold from Monsters

And for early-game you can aswell go with this one:
Ring of Truth
Required Level: 20
15% Faster Hit Recovery
25% Faster Block Rate
(31 to 50)% Bonus to Attack Rating
Total Character Defense Plus (11 to 15)%
Slows Attacker by (3 to 5)%

+2 to Light Radius

Amulet:
Angel Heart
Required Level: 40
+1 to All Skills
(6 to 10)% Bonus to Strength
(6 to 10)% Bonus to Dexterity
Total Character Defense Plus (16 to 20)%

+(3 to 4) to Light Radius

other option if you need more AR
Athulua's Oracle
Required Level: 60
+1 to All Skills
10% Faster Run/Walk
10% Increased Attack Speed
(101 to 250)% Bonus to Attack Rating
(16 to 20)% Chance of Uninterruptable Attack


The other stats are pretty good aswell, mainly because we'll always have to hit and run, so %FRW is welcome.

For the Maths!
I am only implying the early-gear for this calc:
(for easier calculation purposes, I'll expect perfect rolls)

Scorpion Blade poison (not in calc)
Way of the Spider poison (not in calc)
-60% EPR
+60% PD
1883-4017 poison damge
39 - duration in seconds (no %PD applied)

Looks like I've got to redo the whole calculation, because I assumed the "x-y poison poison damage over z seconds" to be x-y poison damage per second over z seconds, but I have to x-y/z to get the poison damage done per second...


mid-game
Weapon:
We might change our weapon to Gehenna RW since it adds significantly more poison damage and additional -%epr, although it loses the awesome 10% CtC lvl 29 Scorpion Blade when you Kill an Enemy

Body Armor:
Keep Jitan's Kamon or Cathedral

Helm:
Cauldron
Level 100

0-3 Jewels
+Yul
Helms
20% Chance to cast level 11 Miasma on Attack
+1 to All Skills
Adds 596-1789 poison damage over 5 seconds
+(201 to 250)% Enhanced Defense

This one is pretty nice, once I know whether or not other sources of poison damage overrides our SP damage, I'll add more info on this.

late-game
Weapon:

Dead Star
Level 100

2x Poison
Throwing Knives
10% Chance to cast level 21 Shadow Blade on Striking
25% Chance to cast level 25 Scorpion Blade when you Kill an Enemy
+(0 to 1) to All Skills
+(300 to 350)% Enhanced damage
Adds 150-200 damage
Adds 801-1602 poison damage over 2 seconds
-30% to Enemy Poison Resistance
+2 Life on Striking

Shield:
Khalim's Protector
Level 100

4x
Poison
Shields
+(0 to 2) to All Skills
40% Faster Block Rate
2% Increased Chance of Blocking
Adds 1602-3203 poison damage over 4 seconds
+(300 to 350)% Enhanced Defense
+10% to Maximum Poison Resist
Total Character Defense Plus 50%
+50 Life after each Kill

There is most likely no other option.

I haven't looked up a lot of late/end-game weapons yet, but the 25% CtC Scorpion Blade and the stats just look amazing.

One thing, please don't use that color yellow/gold. It is practically unreadable against the grey background.

In Dutch it's actually a word Wink

It's a few things, it's a seesaw, but it's also a verb, look it up Wink I won't tell here.
