There are some topics like “best class”,“best lvl8&9 power“ and “best solo build”,recently. I think they all have the same answer: single class monk.

My friend “八两” have finished his ultimate monk build, killed The Voracious Mountain in 2 min.

The same build could also kill Dordugan in 5 min.

https://m.youku.com/...gxMjQyMA==.html

Single class monk is really overpower and need a quick nerf in my opinion.

Kill Dorudugan really quickly, yes. Able to tank him? I see no way a single class monk can tank Dorudugan. The only way I could see it work is use the Grog pet (you are immune to engagement) and kite Dorudugan's attacks which pretty much makes you unkillable. Downside to this is that it can be quite tedious microing everytime Dorudugan is about to attack.

Kitchen Stove will be a really good weapon considering it has higher accuracy (due to being one-handed) than Frostseeker and shoots 4 projectiles rather 3. Build Resonant Touch until 550 stacks and bye bye Dorudugan.
Yes summon and Frosterseeker. with this build, 400stacks is enough. A good tactic AI will save lots time.

True, summoning will be a lot easier than microing to dodge every attack of Dorudugan. Kitchen Stove is better. That's weird? I've been testing it just a week ago and 500 stacks (at 35 might) and Dorudugan still has a sliver of health left. I do it at 550 stacks just to have some leeway. 400 stacks should not be enough.
I can ask for more details. As for melee, battlemage and arcane knight are much easier in my opinion. You just need 167def and 166for for cri immune, summon flank, dodge most of cleav and prevent its self healing by moving away(Deleterious Alacrity of Motion). A simple adventurer with good gears and food buff is good enough to solo dordugan in melee.

 

 

If you gonna do that, you might as well just run a melee helwalker (more damage) and use the pet grog. Same thing, dodge the attacks while deal damage. No need for tanky stats.

I had 31 might and 700 stacks were not enough, he had a fraction of hp left, so i think 750 is enough. But after you use resonant touch, your fps drop to 2-3.

The Dev gave me this command to have a Dorudugan with accurate stats so this is what I use, LaunchRandomEncounter RE_Helfire_Construct

 

At level 20 with 35 might, it should be at around 550 stacks to blow him up.

On PotD Upscaled? Because i tried it with 600 stacks (bloodied) and 700 stacks (fraction of hp) and 31 Might.

 

Any suggestions for Belranga? I think about Greater Maelstrom scrolls for the mobs and Long Pain, when she starts to attack in melee mode.

He's got a lot of self-healing coming from somewhere .... also I'm amazed at how much damage he is doing, even just on the first megaboss ooze ... Given how hard it was for other people to solo this boss, including to stay alive (on things like Tactician/BloodMage), i'm just curious if other folks can break this down. Is it possible this is not PoTD upscaled?

There is a moment when defences of ooze are visible so if you want You can fight thru and compare if it is PotD. Healing looks like two greater regen rings and whiteleaf with dawnstar blessing maybe?
edit. Just download it if You want rewatch

 

I thought it was Ring of Prosperity Fortune (crit ring) and some other ring (the silver one) I don't fully recognize.  From the picture, the silver ring looks like Kuaru's Prize, which maybe he is using just for the stat bonuses (+1 Int, Per) and not for the 5% spell damage buff: https://pillarsofete...m/Kuaru's_Prize

 

Footprints of Ahu Taka sandals?   What are the gloves, maybe Dungeon Warden?  Cape?

This is a hellwalker monk. When pause and rest at 0 o'clock, you can keep food and rest bonus at the same time as far as I knew, which would be a bug.

 

This is the 2nd time I have seen someone hint at a "pause" tactic to rest and keep food bonuses etc.  In both cases the phrasing has been weird and it has not been explained clearly (at least for me) -- what does "pause and rest and 0 o'clock" mean, in pratice?

 

In the no-rest run thread, someone said you could "pause" before resting at shrines, and I tried it but could not get the results of not having the shrine overwrite the other bonuses / lose no-rest bonuses.

 

Beyond this, I still don't get exactly what's going on here.  Boeroer said he's using blade turning to deflect melee attacks, so we're staying a single class monk can do enough damage with his fists between blade turning attacks to take down the Ooze so quickly?  And then presumably somewhere at the end he hits resonant touch to finish it off?  And then spams WoW with the stalking cloak to chain stun the split oozes while he kills them all so quickly?  I'm just sort of stunned because the other vids I've seen of people soloing this boss make it seem so long/tedious and we're saying a single monk can do it this fast and can do Doro in 5 minutes? Just makes me wonder WTF I have been doing on Tac/Bloodmage or Thaumature ....

 

I ran a dual-blunderbuss monk through SSS with a full party, and he still had trouble with certain fights (like the ones with ever-increasing giant boars), so I'm just scratching my head a bit here.  *Shrug*

I have done the Ooze as well, but it took me 15 mins to kill him. Around 5 mins for the big one and i ****ed it up a bit, cuz one pair of oozes merged back together, so i lost maybe 3-4 minutes, but i clearly can not do it within 2 minutes. Blade Turning only lasts about 8 seconds and if you **** up once, it's mostly game over with my dumped down CON monk.

yep, POTD upscaled. You just do the same thing as Dorudugan. Stack resonant strikes and detonate. But before that, take out some spiders until Belranga's deflection is low enough. I would switch some gear too so the small spiders deal -75% damage to me and have some healing. Also leave some spiders infront of you and Belranga should not be able to melee you. After that, it's pretty much GG

Belranga was pretty easy =) Only 11 Minutes haha ;D

 

But i still don't understand, why my Dorudugan needed so much more to kill.

I don't think there is something unusual in this monk besides massive stack of food and drink (picture), i would not be suprised if he went whole nine yards and stack every meal and drink in Eora :) i have hard time to stack shrine blessing. Abilities are visibile, from passives i suspect Bull, Bear, Snake, Razor Edge, Enervating Blows, Heartbeat Drumming, Prestige, TWS, Rooting Pain, Lesser Wounds, for sure some others too.

How is it possible to stack so much food and drink? Do they not overlap and cancel out?

As I commented above, the whole stack-shrine-blessing and or stack-food by using "pause" has never been clearly explained. I also commented this in the no-rest thread where it also was teased with no explanation, and ppl said they couldn't reproduce it.

With my bare fists i get even 16 penetration with tenacous, prestige and potion of ascension + shark soup, because it scales with transcedent suffering.

My guess is they're just using a mod/cheat to enable multiple "unstackable" buffs and use "pause method" as an excuse to seem legit.

brasilgringo, try to trigger event with the shrine. I did it this way.

I could get the shrine bonus to stack with 1 food bonus if I trigger the scripted events - I wrote about it in the no-rest thread.  But if there's multiple food stacking or multiple shrine stacking, I can't get that to work.  Even doing 1 shrine scripted event after the first one, the second one still overwrote the first shrine buff (but not the food buff).
