Finally got my Marauder up to lvl 25ish. Picked up the Blood Magic and the never miss/never crit perk with a 2h hammer. Good lord I like making things explode with the infernal blow gem. That KATHUNK is just so satisfying.

Anyone looking to get rid of the sweep gem? I've got a Cleave that im lvling up if you're into the 2h swords.

Started a Marauder today just to get the Life on Hit gem you receive for the Siren quest. Wow Marauder sucks early. I'm not dying or anything, but all you do is stand there and swing your club at mobs. At least with the Ranger I kite and feel like I'm doing something. I guess Melee isnt my playstyle.

Also I do have a Sweep if you want it Slofton

I found out you can get it from the 2nd quest as a Templar. I went ahead and did that this morning. Thanks though! Might I suggest getting lots of +hp on hit with infernal blow and sweep/cleave. Tons of fun making things explode

Yeah, I really, really hated Marauder on my first attempt. Just felt super slow and his accuracy is complete shit, so not only do you attack slow, but like one out of three attacks miss.

I then tried out freezing pulse Marauder and I'm now level 62 and am uber tanky while also doing pretty good damage. The first 30 or so levels suck though, up until you can really get good gear to support the build.

The never miss, never crit skill is a game changer for a marauder. Especially if you use 2h.

Resolute Technique right? I saw it but it just states "hits can't be evaded."

With Evasion being a stat I wasn't sure, if it's *always hits*, that's pretty damn awesome!

I started a few days ago and I'm really liking the game. Great ambiance and style.

I actually switched my Marauder to use Ice Spear and Freezing Pulse and had fun with that. Got my Life on Hit, so I'm done with him for now.

I gave Life on Hit to my Ranger and made the switch to Blood Magic. At first I wasnt too sure about it. I did the math and I needed to hit 4 enemies with my Ice Shot/Pierce/Lesser Multi/Life on Hit attack to get my life cost for the spell back. But the gem levels up so damn fast, and it gains another 2 life each level. Now I'm getting like 14 life per hit, and only need to hit 2 enemies per attack which is pretty easy to do. At the rate it's leveling though, I'll have it down to like 1 enemy before long. Right now my friend and I are working through Cruel. Just killed the Warden, and it's been REALLY easy with this build.

Next order of business is find a 5-link piece of gear, and work my way across the bottom of the skill grid. I'm working towards Iron Reflexes and am going to pick up Berserking and maybe Golems Blood along the way. Once I get to Iron Reflexes I'll grab Unwavering Stance too, no point in taking it before hand. I think it'll take me like 15 levels to get all there. After that it's all life nodes and maybe some IAS if I can find some.

Basically you never miss. It can still be clocked but it goes from hitting 50% or the time to hitting 95% of the time. This skill really makes a difference.

What 5L are you looking for? I'll keep my eye out for ya.

Also, if anyone starts finding some summon skellies/zombie gem can you let me know? my next char is going to be a summoner.

I need a 5-L bow. Obviously higher level is better, or of course 6-L. I'm really not sure what I need armor-wise. Since I'll be using Iron Reflexes and probably Armour Master, I can use either Evasion or Strength based gear. Most of the gear I'm looking for right now has Life(+Max, on hit, or Regen are all good)/Strength/Increased Attack Speed (only available on Bows I think, but maybe Gloves too?)/Increased Movespeed (boots obviously).

Right now I have a 3-L bow and a 4-L armor. So my armor has my main attack on it while my bow just has Lightning Arrow, Poison Arrow and Fork all together.

I do have a couple Raise Zombie Gems and a Summon Skeleton. No quality on them though.

Actually I've got a lot of the common gems if people need them.

Ha! My buddy gave me his Quill Rain today to play with. Holy crap 3+ attacks per second is crazy. Too bad the damage is so low. I think I might play around with some different stuff on it though.

Yeah, we've got two of them between my group of friends and I. Its fun, but the 50% decreased damage makes it only good up until a point.

I guess it used to be good with explosive arrow + pierce. EA stacks with each hit (up to 5) but it wont explode if you keep re-stacking it. So pierce used to cause it to blow without the delay. They fixed that though, now it's not so great.

Found an Exalted Orb last night, and pretty much nothing else. Anyone know how much a Lioneyes Gaze Bow goes for? I know it's really high-end gear as most rangers use them if they can get them.

Updated the first post with some useful websites.

I've got my ranger set up a little better now. Still running the freeze arrow/pierce deal, but now I have a Frenzy/Weapon Elemental Damage/Faster Attacks/Life on Hit for single targets.

Worked well on everything I tried last night until the Act 2 boss. He was 1-shotting me with his laser. I'm not sure if I need to hurry up and get Iron Reflexes or spend more points on Life.

Heres my build so far

Friend of mine died in HC on his 66 Templar. Merciless Vaal literally one-shot him. It was pretty funny. I wound up re-rolling (AGAIN) with him. We're doing dual Templar dual totem builds. We got to 40 in a day. He's doing dual fire totems and I'm doing dual spark totems. The ability to clear full mobs in mere seconds is kind of dumb.

The only downside is that people in pub groups are morons and think we're standing around doing nothing, because once we cast two totems, we cant use spells, so all we do is curse. We get all kinds of derps yelling at us to "DO SOMETHING", all while our totems are raping everything while they stand there typing.

This is why I try never to play with pubs. My buddy is using a Witch with GMP Fireballs and has Flame Totem as a extra ability. He spends most of his time on Merciless Ledge just dropping a totem every so often so he can farm orbs. Seems like totem builds are kinda OP right now.

Totems are definitely...good. We can farm SO easily, but if stuff does wind up getting to us, it becomes a mad dash to try and gain enough distance to cast another totem uninterrupted. So yeah, they do a lot of damage, especially in small concentrated areas, but you are left pretty vulnerable at times if you aren't careful.

Doing MF runs on Merciless Brutus with my friend. We're both right around 300%. That said, we're doing it with the Wondertraps, so we both BM Purity to get our HP low. I'm at 129HP with like 1500ES. Our last run I apparently almost died. On his screen Brutus pulled me and did his ground slam thing. On my screen I just walked away from him. I wouldn't of even know unless my friend said something. Sure enough I look at my health and he took me down to 100ES. De-syncing is awesome.

I'm to the point where I'm going to need to open a forum store just to get rid of my gems I dont need. I've almost got a full page.

I kinda wish they would add a recipe for gems. Like any 5 gems will give you a new random gem with some quality on it. The quality of that gem would depend on the quality of the gems you sold. That way you can get rid of all your 0-10% quality gems and maybe get a better one.

Got my Ranger to Merciless last night. I had to drop a couple life nodes in exchange for some resistances. I've got some better gear now though, had lucky rolls on some rares.

Sucks being poor though, saw 2 different Lioneyes Glare bows for sale and couldn't even offer enough to warrant a reply.

I'm not sure there really is a totally OP Ranger. I'm not sure how mine is gonna do tomorrow after the new patch drops. Theres a change to LOH that I dunno how bad it'll hurt me.

Hey last night I found a decent gem. Got Reduced Mana with 10% quality. I took my 5L bow off my old Ranger and gave it to the new one, but I might need to re-roll the stats on it as it doesnt really help my new guy. But with the Reduced Mana and that bow, I was able to switch Lesser Multi Projectiles out for Greater. I still need to hit 2 enemies for any life gain, but once I get the gems leveled abit I think I'll be ok.

I think bow Duelist is better than a bow Ranger at this point. The new Duelist tree is pretty awesome.
