hi guys, i’m new in here. So need help for any tips to dealing with Iron Maiden and Fabius(Ultimate) as a pyromancer rifle(Hellborne) build .They hit like damn trucks :furious:
sorry for late reply: my gears
yeah followed jajaja’s guide so skills and devotions familiar like him https://gracefuldusk.appspot.com/items/8204-Tinker’s-Ingenuity for -15% Physique Requirement For Armor(Mask of Infernal Truth from 829 to ~720 physique and btw i’m an idiot, put most of points to cunnings) , +8% Chance to Avoid Melee Attacks, Maximum Bleeding Resistance and Increases Health Regeneration https://gracefuldusk.appspot.com/items/8018-Stormtitan-Treads for 25% Reduced Stun Duration Most Of The Time 1 shot is REAL, i think they hit with crit
PS: Mad Queen(Squishy) = easy for me, lure her near the exit then she’ll retreat, quickly put 2 Morta traps and Thermite mine(Ulzuin’s Torch) block her way then repeat ultil dead :o
Just use Blast shield. Flashbang Searing light for Fumble at lvl 7 (owrks on bosses and Nemesis) with + skills and life steal. Rest is in the build.
@kb27787: Haven’t felt the nerf much. Yesterday he Crit me with 14K damage on a tank character that normally can drink coffee while killing him. Was very surprised, and he didn’t have any special weapons, just a very lucky Execute. He wasn’t too nerfed really.
His skills are much less dependant on weapon damage now (this applies to Iron Maiden too), making his damage more predictable. That was the main issue Fabius had, sometimes he would deal next to no damage and suddenly, poof, half of my hp gone in a blink of an eye. He was nerfed along with Iron Maiden in 18.104.22.168 hotfix 1 or 2, either one of them.
Like others said, cap pierce, cold and bleed resist. These are Fabius’s three main damage types.
Mad Queen is harder for me because i have no choice but to kite her to avoid the shotgun retaliation effect, and rely on burn to counter her heal. Iron Maiden is tankable with enough bleed/stun resist and HP.
Ok a few things. First of all skills. You are not a lightining build so static strike won’t do much for you. Get aspect of the guardian to 12/12. Blood of dreeg You can keep at 16/16.temper you don’t need at 12/12. Put 1 skill and let + skills do the rest. Blast shield is just lvl 5 with + skill, that is bad. It should be lvl 12 with + skills. You will notice the difference immediately. Posession keep at 12/12 it’s optimal.
Equippment. replace Boots with Golemborn as soon as you can. More armor, phys resist and that proc will get your total armor rating to 1500. Very good. Your boods are paper thin. They are only good for a build running around totems:). Get Shadowflame Mantle even if dual guns, if you have it. Try to get mask of Infernal truth. Ulzuin’s Toment Belt. Ih switch to 2h get Harbinger’s grasp gloves ans Sigil of Ch’ton medal.
Devotions. If you go 2h follow the link I posted with Jajaja’s build. As you can see it works and wrecks fabius in approx 40 seconds. Use the dovotions from that build.
If you don’t go 2h I’d drop Magi. It’s too cumbersome for a gunslinger. you need to proc lots of fissures and your enemy needs to stand on them for you to benefit from the damage. Currently you are kiting a lot.
