holy melee

Post by solipery on Mon Mar 16, 2015 9:18 am

Hi!

Can anyone give me a quick skill plan of a holy melee character, and maybe some gear suggestions? I tried looking through the guides, but the ones that i did find seemed very outdated, especially with the changes in xvc. Cheers!

Sure here you go:

Holy melee tree:
Retaliate - 1pt (this is your aoe skill)
Hammerstrike - 1pt (this is your single target skill)
Merkabah 1pt (buff)
Lionheart - enough points to reach 1000tcd cap (initially this will mean smax, but as you get more charms or use prebuff gear you will need barely any points here)
Colloseum - leftovers to reduce cooldown timer

Holy caster tree:

Dragon Oath - smax, cooldown timer capped at 1sec but it deals crazy fire damage and and it gives energy factor to boost spell proc dmg.

Dragonshout, Demonrend, Burnout - 1pt. We won't be using these as we are melee wdm (except shout for cc)

Deva king - smax, gives you insane attack speed, losim, deadly strike and allows you to spam retaliate without being hit for its duration.

holy /unholy influence tree: 3pts in the buff skill and 1 in all others

reward tree: 1pt divine apparition, enough points in blessed life to reach 50% dr cap, smax plague

Stats: 100pts in dex, rest in str.

Gear to 120 and for easy ubers:

TU6 holy spear - the crucifier. Replace with Taquiyya runeword in a sacred pala spear (preferrably in a tepoztopilli) when you reach destruction.

TU6 gothic plate - steel golem. Replace with Dragonheart runeword in a sacred ancient armour/gothic plate when you are in destruction.

TU6 hundsgugel - godhead. Tu6 heavy belt - deadfall. Tu6 light plated boots - zealot rush. TU6 heavy gloves - toorc's fist.

Jewellery - rares with + skills and at least 15 -epr.

Socket chest with Jah runes and all other slots with Eld runes, runewords with rare 2% str jewels and attack rating (if you can be bothered to reroll that much). Reach 100 enemy poison resist pierce and then as much fire pierce as you can up to 100.

Gameplay: Cast deva king every 5 seconds to keep the morph up. This gives you retaliate sparkles allowing you to spam retaliate and demolish all normal mobs with plague. Use colloseum and hammerstrike for bosses.

Alternative Holy Melee:

Skillplan Holy avenger (Paladin, Ultimative XVc)]

Use Zohan Shield (Zod) and Brahman Weapon (Nas)

@suchbalance
And how is one supposed to survive with this build, where's the healing coming from? Deva King's ~260-300+ life on strike with a melee hit can't even outheal the dmg that comes in river of flame.. let alone "easy ubers".

1.) Don't jump in and facetank

2.) Use health potions

3.) Analyze situation and adjust playstyle accordingly.

You kind of new sMaxed Blessed life (for all the DR%). That helps tremendously with tankiness. As does LL% in addition to strike on melee. If you want, roll a amulet that has 5% CTC hymn. That'll help further.

You may also need to raise max res with pgems. These things add up

Here's how:

Part 1: Defence

- Free 1k TCD from Lionheart
- Free 50% DR from Blessed Life (btw brc is a joke thanks to poison damage passive skill, just ask javazons)
- Most stats in strength, can wear the heaviest armours right off the bat, which give insane base defence to combo with Lionheart


Part 2: Sustain

- VINDICATE
- Deva King Losim
- Huge physical damage, so life leech is more effective on this char than most others at this stage of the game


Part 3: Misc

- Retaliate nova knocks back -> melee mobs are harmless after first retaliate
- Divine apparition - 5 sec timered blink with screenwide fancy stun (gap closer for ranged mobs)
- Tanky as fuck hoplites with decent damage due to inherited plague
- Sacred armour
- Colloseum



Probably forgetting some stuff but this should be enough to get you on your feet.
