Download and Play Schot's Level 140 Bolting Terror
Here's the very same HE I made a video of and posted about in January. Whew, she's an oldie.
Most Wicked Sacred 2 Combat Art... Evah!
She's an oldie but a goodie. I created the Bolting Terror about a year ago. In fact I think it's the second character that I made and surprisingly it has survived not only all the enemies in general but it also seems to have withstood all the game patches, nerfs and so on. I'll eventually go into greater detail with how I leveled her, what gear she wears and so on but for now I'm just fulfilling a request for Barristan to talk about this HE of mine. For now a test drive will have to do. ^^ One catch though... Her gear needs to be forged because all of her slots are empty, haha. I still haven't updated her gear since moving into Ice & Blood. A lot of her jewelry was changed into poo... I did buy crap loads of new jewelry which is all sitting in her backpack so she's good to go. She just needs her gear forged.
The primary reason for making her is to eventually use Shadow Step as her main attack against mobs. She's aaaaalmost there. Presently her Shadow Step cooldown, not regen, is at 6.7 without any jewelry socketed. If I can get that baby down to about 5 secs I'll be good to go! Since the only way to lower the cooldown at this point is to add more skill points to her Delphic Arcania Focus I'll need to level her up even more. Presently at level 140 which essentially makes this a Niob build. Her second fave mob Combat Art is Cobalt Strike. That one is a real kicker! Heavy Damage - Chain Reaction - Explosion are my preferred modifications. The tighter the mob the better the chain and explosion.
I'm fairly certain I put about 80% of my points into Intelligence. May have put 20% into Stamina but I'm afraid I didn't keep track.
Skills I chose in order (Based on a level 140 HE):
Delphic Arcania Lore Always max
Delphic Arcania Focus Always max
Ancient Magic Master this second and stop at 75
Mystic Stormite Lore Approx 1/3 of char level
Mystic Stormite Focus Approx 1/3 of char level
Concentration 20 points
Combat Discipline Master this first and stop at 75
Armor Lore Approx 1/3 of char level
Riding 5 points (Exchange this with Bargaining if you're in dire need of some bling bling)
Constitution Approx 1/4 of char level
Combat Arts I modified in order:
Grand Invigoration (Mystic Stormite Expertise - Replenish - Resilience)
Shadow Step (Shadow Step - Sanctuary - Explosion)
Crystal Skin (Glacial Mirror - Focalize - Frosty Breeze)
The Glacial Mirror modification requires a bit of explaining. The game has three different definitions for this modification which can lead it to be undervalued. Those three definitions are:
- "Increases the chance to reflect incoming detrimental magical effects" on the mod icon tooltip
- "Chance to Reflect Magic Attacks" On the Combat Art's tooltip
- "Chance to reflect: Combat Arts" on the Sigma when buff is active
Frost Flare (Spell Flow - Frost - Icy Circle)
Cobalt Strike (Heavy Damage - Chain Reaction - Explosion)
Glacial Thorns (Frost - Devastation - Pierce)
Expulse Magic (Strength - Pentagram - Protection)
Magic Coup (Target Focus - Steal Mana - Stray Damage)
Ok, gonna stop there cause I can already feel myself spending the entire evening on this and I really just wanna go and shop, lol. <=(I wrote that more than an hour ago... Doh!)
Detailed version soon...
