I am a lvl 48 Marauder... With my normal group and with buffs, I am hitting over 2000 DPS with heavy strike... 661 base damage. You seem to get higher dps with axes, but I use ground slam with life leach. 3% health on 900+ dps is nice. biggrin.gif

who? At the time the NORMAL difficulty lightning skeles mirked me I had 50% lightning resistance, over 600 HP, and a ton of armor. This was only at lvl 26 in normal mode and I was almost insta gibbed. No idea how it happened. That 50% was with some resist on armor though. But does resist scale with difficulty? like having 75% in normal would scale with having 75% in higher difficulties?

^ Forget what I just said because I was thinking of a different game lol. But still I never really paid any attention to elemental resistance because all I have to do is equip 2 rings and it gives me an instant 70% resistance. For elemental skeletons, I don't think you really need a lot of resistance since you can easily kite them. Works for me in normal and cruel so far.

For physical damage reduction, does that go up with armor? I have 857 armor and only 26% physical damage reduction.

Yeah physical dmg reduction goes up wit armor rating. Thats what i mean tho man... I was insta gibbed by lightning skeles yet EVERY other map i was gliding thru with ease. Maybe it was lag/glitch something? Dunno... It was easily a lvl 21 map or something and i was lvl 26 wit mad HP and armor... also had a TON of life regen life leech and life on hit etc. for my level... I dunno though. Anyway, re rolled another HC duelist and we will see how this goes. I'm just glad I didn't lose my geofri's hammer to default league because I was one level away from being able to equip it tongue.gif
post #365 of 1104
Thanks gun for the feedback. Made it to 38 tonight in cruel. I'd like to gear a little more resist. I'm a couple points away from another nice picket of regen passives.

Edit: Had to log in this morning to get my fix, moved around a couple pieces of gear to focus more on survivability vs straight damage and feeling pretty good about it, lvl 38 with:
~1k life
41% phy damage reduction
71% lightning resist
40% fire resist
70% cold resist
400 auto attack dps

I aquired a Melee attack speed gem, but don't have the dex to equip it yet, gonna hold out for a 4 red socket item so I can equip the following:
Ground Slam -> Attack Speed -> Life Leach -> Melee Physical damage

any opinions on Leach vs LoH for aoe abilities? guess I could roll with both if needed and have supporting gear.

You may have been getting shock stacked from the lightning damage from the skellies. That can tear people up quick.

I would replace life leach with Elemental Damage. My Marauder is currently 50+ and I use Ground Slam with Added Fire Dmg, Elemental Dmg and Melee Phys Dmg. With Anger on my Ground Slam does around 900+ dmg/hit.

I also use Glacial Hammer over Heavy Strike even though HS does slightly more dmg for the simple reason that I hate knockback on HS.
Glacial Hammer with Faster Attacks, Elemental Dmg and Melee Physical Dmg with Anger on puts me over 2k a hit. Once I get a 5 link I will add Cold Penetration.

Overall I feel LOH and LL are a waste of a gem slot. You can get life leech on weapons, rings and amulets which is more than enough to sustain what I spend in skills through Blood Magic. My opinion may change in late game.


I switched to Blood Magic around 40+. The trick for a Marauder is to only use flat mana based buffs like Anger. Using any of the %mana buffs just kills your health pool or your small mana pool preBM.

Leave those buffs to your caster friends or wait for a reduced mana gem to slot in if you really feel the need to run a high mana cost aura.

From the wiki:
Quote:
Shock causes affected targets to take increased damage. This can be stacked up to three times on one target. In this state, monsters or players take 40% more damage per instance of Shock from all sources. Under the effects of 3 stacks of Shock, an enemy would take 220% of the damage that would normally be done without any Shock effects, no matter the type or source of the damage.

Not to mention the monsters can crit too. I had 75% res on my new templar, old one still alive biggrin.gif, and those skeletons didn't do damage unless I let the debuff get stacked and then my health would start dropping.

a bit ridiculous in normal mode if you ask me lol. its not like you can max out resists at lvl 20! haha thanks for the info guys. I thought "shock" was like "stun" though in which it wouldnt effect you unless the hit did a certain percentage of your overall HP, which I think 600+ was pretty insane for a lvl 26 character but i dunno...

regarding heavy strike, what lvl was your gem for the knockback? Doesn't it also reduce enemy stun threshold or increase stun duration or something? That's the only reason I want to try it on a ground slam build. ATM i have fun leap slamming in the middle of crowds and using sweep to clear everything. currently used hatred and anger... takes a lot of my mana but not really an issue atm at low lvl. I just want to get the gems leveled so I can dump them and wait for higher levels to use them again.

Good point. Ele Damage would be a nice addition since I'm looking almost exclusively for phy modifier armor atm. Until I can get a decent roll on some +% life from phy damage I'll have to use the life gems just cause need to offset the incoming damage. I see your point about Glacial hammer, the knock back is pretty lame on HS, another perk about Glacial Hammer is that you can freeze people... I'll have to try it out again with this new build.

You're a maurader right? Diamond Skin node (+15% res) + 2 res rings (25% - 30%) and you're close to cap on normal at least. Swap out the rings as needed for whatever you're facing.

If you're not using CI/minions/totem to soak up the hits then resistance is definitely a priority.
