just wanted to say i love this game!

Post by shnurr214 on Tue Apr 07, 2015 4:36 am

Hey guys. I have just started playing median xl seriously and I have to say I love it. I just hit level 120 on my bow druid and am totally struggling through destruction difficulty getting completly owned all the time. however I am really enjoying it.. I am having trouble farming T fauz ( i pretty much get 1 shot) and havent finished the rest of my brc but i might roll a caster or a summoner barb to try to experience a more cheap spec. I also kind of feel bad since a guy i met in game kind of powerleveled me from 90 in tcows and i feel like i missed out on a lot of learning. Any tips tricks or advice is much appreciated. I also wanted to say that the community here seems pretty awesome and im looking forward to the reset on sin war soon. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the game before that happens.

im using a yul rw bow and a bunch of random t6 uniques for my gear. ie splint mail, chain gloves, heavy belt etc...

Don't worry, with BRC done you'll be better at surviving. Your weapon of choice is great, and the rest of the gear is good for now. Anyway i don't think you a have a serious problem so i don't know what advice to give. Don't rush and get overwhelmed? Caster/summoner druid is also fine if you want to complete BRC, you don't have to make a barb unless you want to try something slower but tankier.

Yeah as you already realised, getting rushed when you are playing untwinked is a bad idea because you end up at 120 with no gear and skip the learning experience that is clearing terror and destruction.

Here is a topic on the same bow druid subject that got many good replies: http://www.medianxl.com/t6904-bow-feed-the-pack-druid-can-t-do-throne-of-destruction-on-terror-without-dying-every-second-mob-pack

BRC is very important for a druid. Unlike other classes, he gets one of his core defensive options from it. You'll find things a lot easier once you complete it.

In order to do so however, you're going to need a lot of defense. I suggest wearing 2-3 T6 honorific items and MOing them with 2% TCD orbs for a total of 60% TCD each. Make sure all your gear is at least T6 (I suggest using a Sacred runeword for your body armor) and at 350% ED. You could also MO 30%-60% reanimate as Fallen/Skeletons in the same honorific gear.

Also don't attempt the BRC until after you're level 120 and have these easy charms from the first 3 acts of Destruction - Horazon's Focus from Creature of Flame uber, Scroll of Kings from Tal Rasha uber, Laser Focus Crystal from Death Projector uber. The stats and HP they provide will make things a lot easier.

When clearing T Fauzt for the BRC make sure you use Elven song a lot. Cast it in front of you before you move ahead.

I think re-specing to caster druid for BRC is a totally viable option in addition to all this advice.
Otherwise necrobots are so difficult to deal with
