I don't understand well how u can regen so fast your life?if u vent skillpoint on reg nodes..let me understand ...mmm


Well, I have 10% of physical attack damage leeched as life (2% from passive, 8% from blood rage), so lets say I'm at 13k DPS thats around 1300 regen/second when I swing (using the main hand physical damage portion you calculate from, not cold damage or etc). That regen goes up if I am in a DPS build variant. Anyway, max leech is 20% of max life/second, or about 18xx/sec potential for me. Above and beyond that I have a few hundred life I regen natively due to passives, so you can end up around 2k regen/sec... That's why AFK videos are more impressive, no swing leeching ;)

PM me if that doesn't make sense and I can elaborate.

How many maps to go from 99 to 100? It is around 460, well-rolled level 78 maps.

So, that means if you are level 99 and are 50% of the way towards 100, and you die (on std) and lose 10% of that level's exp (i.e. down to 40%), then you would need to do about another 46 well-rolled level 78 maps to get back to 50%.

Thanks. I am not at home right now but if I recall it is 52% naked (around 10k armor), 62% with self-buffed determination (around 16k armor), and then another +28% (i.e. 90% physical damage reduction) with all endurance charges.

Nice guide!

I modified the build around a little for a lower level, more defensive tank Marauder. I intend to use it as a first character for questing/farming, during the next batch of 4-month leagues.

You reckon that it could work, assuming my goal is to get farming going and NOT to do end-game maps? I tried to get as much of my defenses from the tree, so that I don't need to get so much defence on gear AND also allow me some MF mods if possible.

Here's my little variation:

Yes. Are you thinking of a HC league? If so, that would make sense, though if you aren't in HC and you aren't building for end-game bosses then I'm not sure I would go for all that defense at the lack of offense...

I wrote a guide for 1h sword shield reave Marauder that does pretty much the same as the marauder here, only "on a budget" as I'm not nearly as rich as Mortezzah.

Maybe you want to check it out.

I go to Ranger area instead of upper left and skip the scion lifewheel for some sword nodes (which results in about the same damage with a sword that has half DpS, but costs some survivability).

I still feel pretty tanky, 75% Block is all you really need to make 99% of the content of the game a walk in the park. At least until you reach the higher lvl maps... ;)

Nah, I prefer the laid back nature of the SC leagues lol. I'm trying to get as much defense as I can from the skill grid so that I don't have to worry about it so much on equipment, which I can then get purely for damage at a cheaper cost. Which areas would you recommend modifying? I like the idea of getting enough resistance from the grid so I don't have to balance that out on equips.

Thanks man, I'll have a look! Just doing some planning ahead for the next batch of ladder leagues. I'm thinking of going maybe Double Strike with Melee Splash, though. I have a nice CI Crit Reaver on Standard now but the APS feels a bit lacking.
