• Hi everyone!

    As part of our plan to create a unified community across all sites/logins, we have now integrated VGAssist into the forum community here and ported over some of the more popular guides. This part of the community will focus on game guides as well as a community videogaming Q&A section and we encourage you all to get involved too :)

    While we were doing this we have fixed up a few visual anomalies in some parts of the forums too.

Patriarch SirTshirt - Conviction zealot

Screenshot_2020-10-13_21-41-07.png

The idea was to pair Conviction with 5FPA Zeal with Gimmershred as inspired by AJK's Tristan. Where AJK built a tank I used Treachery and wanted to get hit to proc Fade. Another spin on the build was to add absorb to all elements. Gear choices reflected these guidlines: add or absorb (preferrably elemental) damage. In the end SirTshirt was close to a full spectrum warrior: the only type of damage he did not deal (or absorb/reduce) was magic.

Lightning damage: 43 - 940 (average: 491.5)
Poison damage: 305 - 325 (average: 315)

Skills
--------
Sacrifice: 20/20

Charge: 6/6
Vengeance: 1/1 (brainfart, never used)
Holy Shield: 20/24
Conviction: 20/20
Cleansing: 1/1
Vigor: 1/1
Salvation: 1/1 (used this at some point while waiting for Fade to proc)

Gear
-------
Head: Vampire Gaze with jewel of fervor
Armor: Treachery Mage Plate
Gloves: Laying of Hands (original plan was Trang-Oul's Claws to enhance Venom)
Belt: Thundergod's Vigor
Boots: Gore Rider (original plan was Infernostride)
Weapon: Gimmershred
Shield: Tiamat's Rebuke with perfect diamond
Amulet: The Rising Sun
Ring1: Raven Frost
Ring2: Carrion Wind (for the fireworks mainly :) although Poison Nova frequency is a good indicator of how much I am getting hit aka do I need to worry about Fade running out.
Switch: Demon Limb & Herald of Zakarum
Inventory: assortment of elemental damage charms and a few resist charms

Might merc Fazel: Duriel's, Guillaume's, eth Reapers Toll.

Progress
--------------
SirTshirt started out with Irathas set and Rusthandle. Weapons used while leveling included: King's Grace Dimensional Blade, Honor Dimensional Blade, Holy Thunder Divine Scepter, Lightsabre. Zeal was left at level 4 for a long time while concentrating on Holy Shield & Sacrifice & Conviction. When those were done I went on to put points into Zeal and Charge, to whichever had less AR bonus at the time to keep them on par. Normal and NM were done on P8 (save bosses & ancients for speed). Hell was done on P3 for Act1-3. Then dropped to P1 for rest. Did try P7 Pits and WSK after patting. Not exactly fast, but fun. :) Ancients were done under 30 seconds.

Finds
--------
- Mal from forge
- Tal's plate from CS, nice with 3MF :)
- Martial arts skiller with 7frw.
- Shifter skiller

Stuff
--------
If there ever was a runeword more aptly named than Treachery... At times it is really hard to proc Fade and also keep it active. A good example of this was when SirTshirt entered plains of Despair. He was welcomed by some Gloams and at that same moment Fade expired and that was that. I realized alot of my proccing troubles were because of merc's Holy Freeze. I was better of being hit more with Might merc. Even so, to get a session going I went to Canyon of Magi, the lightning flying around seemed to work well as a Fade starter and was fairly safe. After reaching act5 I just stood in the fire outside town. Also in Act 5 there were so much projectiles flying around I had no issues where Fade ran out.

I did enjoy playing this character, no major hiccups. The ability to throw your main weapon when you are not in the mood to chase is nice. Lowish life gave a nice sence of danger.

What next?
-----------------
I have an eth Oath Balrog Blade rusting in stash that could be put to use: Maybe a 3 piece Tal's MF WW Barb now that I found the armour. On the other hand I have now two pats using that Treachery MP so a Treachery sept is well on its way. :)
