storm shaman - max light res?

Post by zerocool on Sat Feb 07, 2015 9:11 pm

hey i am trying to reach asap 500 sig's and doin nilhatak runs.

i am playing a bowzon, and get sometimes raped by storm shamans so hard. Bow down prostrate
if i try to reach him, he offscreen casting some LW's and i got wrecked by small stones they fly around the map and sounds like a nailgun. (maybe this is from thunderlings?) [fairy ring]
make it sense to fill my sockets with ambers only? Scratch



Tis is the Doc entry:
Storm Shaman ELITE

Immune to: Lightning.
Skills: Casts Lightning wall, uses his minion Thunderling corpses to cast Fairy Ring (weapon based, with both heavy lightning and physical components), which summons six turrets that shoot charged missiles. Rocks.
Comment: Hahaha! Who said that a glass cannon build isn’t viable?
Strategy: Basically, you have to take away his monsters and kill them somewhere he can’t use the corpses to cast Fairy Ring and melt you face. Done? Good.
Now all you have to worry is LW, which can actually deal high damage despite of your maxed resistances. Also dodging it isn’t exactly easy, since he’ll cast it on your head and you’ll get hit no matter how fast you run.
Melee characters should rush at him without caring about anything else, potting to tank the LWs.
Potting should be the perfect solution for ranged characters too, maybe dropping a lolsummon (Bane Monster wins this time) by his side so that not all of the heat focuses on them.
Summoners won’t have any problem with them, for LW won’t really kill their mobs, at least not instantly, which is the only thing that stops a summoner.

my bowzon used to rape destruction nilhathak. It's fairly straightforward

First and most importantly, get a piece of equipment with RIP modifier (and add one for your merc). That way everything that dies leaves no corpses for fairy rings to get spawned on.

2nd (somewhat optional), put more perfect ambers for higher lightning res (helps with lightning wall from storm shamen AND for the FAR more overpowered shock monkeys (their "lightning wall" is way more powerful))

ultimately, you should be able to kill everything with wyrmshot/phalanx/barrage. Kite and run around to keep safe distance from mosnters. Bowzons have no defense (which is why fairy ring wrecks you) and everything in nilh's halls hits HARD.
