    There are tons of other threads related to PvM dexer builds so I won't go into it but the cliff notes version: If you want an effective champ spawn dexer then go Non garg dexer (swords). Use a barded swampy to ride for damage reduction and spam whirlwind. Use bladed staff on the champ.

    If you want to play solo Itll be tough to kill the spawn quick enough, but dont fret! Your thrower is still a powerful character. Very powerful against big single targets that you can kite around or have buddies holding aggro. Throwers just lack the area attacks of some other dexers.

    Whirlwind rocks spawns, and even archers have the magical shortbow. Whirlwind has great damage and with that lots of heals/stam/mana for samps. The swampy is a big help with survivability, too.

    I hope so! I love seeing hit area proc off of an AI, esp against a target with a lesser slayer or under EoO.

    My only thought is you can also put those aoe's on a radiant, a double axe, or a magical shortbow and really dish out the carnage against large groups of spawn.

    An archer has the same ability with a composite but can also use the shortbow for the first cpl levels. Samps can use WW weapons to keep hp/mana/stam topped off. But obviously, if you're doing well on spawns with your thrower just using glaives with hit area, that's awesome. I'm glad you went and found out for yourself!
