Dear fellow warriors! I collected some artifacts and want to build a suit around it for my Thrower. A Thrower in Wraith form who quite obviously would love to chain AI. Using soul stones the gargoyle might be a thrower without wraith at times. Why 'temporary'? Because of Publish 81! Spoiler: My intention: to achieve the most with minimum efforts I had a lot of fun reading lots of threads here. My initial plan was to gather some important artifacts and then craft some great pieces with runic re-forging and enhancement after imbuing. From what I understand about Publish 81 it will bring some changes to armour and weaponry so I don't want to spend dozens of millions on imbuing ingredients, runic tools and forged metals of artifacts before Publish 81. I do want to take the thrower out of the house now and don't want to wait until Publish 81. What I want is a temporary budget suit. I am unsure how to achieve the most with minimum efforts. I don't care much about materials like relic fragment consumption as they are easy enough to farm. Aims: PvM, if possible including bosses like Medusa, Navrey, etc. Available artifacts: Shroud Of The Condemned Crimson Cincture Mace & Shield Reading Glasses (I guess this is too good to forgo) Ranger's Augmentation Wings (SSI 5% and other mods) Berserker's Breastplate (SSI) Void Infused Kilt (HCI) Mana Phasing Orb with 15% DI, LMC 6%, 5% DCI Edit: A Primer on Arms Damage Removal is also available I came to the conclusion it will be rather hard including enough Stamina Increase for some decent swing speed. I know the suit will have some drawbacks. My thoughts about the necessity and importance of mods so far: Spoiler: Personal thoughts so far about DCI, HCI, DI, LMC, SSI... Defense chance - I guess I don't necessarily need it maxed as a ranged fighter. Damage Increase: should be maxed out at all cost. Hit Chance: should be maxed out at all cost (will be difficult :-( ). Lower Mana Cost: Should be maxed out. Elemental resists: Can usually be easily be maxed out, but maybe not as important as hit chance and LMC? Stamina - as high as possible but difficult to reach 180+ with given artifacts. It might be worth leaving out one of the artifacts to make a better fitting piece with imbuing. Don't know which one to leave out, though - Void Infused Kilt gives highly needed HCI, Berserker's Breatplate gives SSI and even DI. Weapons hopefully will be usable even after publish 81. Whetstones seem to be out of reach right now, though. I doubt I will go out and collect a dozen of them, too tedious. I have some runic hammers (from Dull to Bronze) in store if runic re-forging would help. Which mods are the most important for my (temporary?) budget suit? Which mods are important but don't need to be maxed out? A side note: Area damage? Spoiler: Area damage On a side note: How effective are those are damage mods on Throwing weapons? I like them a lot on melee weapons but am unsure if are damage is as effective for ranged fighters as it is for melee fighters. I hope some of you have some great ideas for a 'budget' suit around my artifacts. Thanks in advance!
