PX1player Posted March 31, 2016 Share Posted March 31, 2016 Thinking here of optimal weapons to aim for, that are also achievable in a way that the game isn't already over by the time you get them. Been considering trying out a solo barb run since I've not done solo before, and potentially going for dual wield since 2handed on solo just sounds rather suicidal because slow. Granted, the soulbound 2handed swords are quite nice though, but don't synergize well on carnage I think? At the moment I was thinking that for example The Unlabored Blade and that durgan enchanted stiletto with divine mark would be a good combo to go for. However, both weapons being fast, I'd probably be relatively weak against high DR opponents with no way to mitigate it, other than hope for more burn procs. Maybe a war hammer like Strike Hard as an alternative weapon to use since it comes with speed, disorienting and has enough slots for either legendary or superlas and has higher base damage? Downside is that it has a different weapon focus from stiletto for when I swap it in... Open to ideas Also considering that there are likely to be times where a shield will be necessary, and the soulbound one seems best suited for that. Would it be worth picking up weapon+shield talent for the extra reflex and deflect? Non-class talent wise, I imagine I need at least 1 weapon focus, maybe 2? Hold the Line will be necessary due to solo and not wanting -10 deflect/sneak attacks. Two weapon fighting. Superior Deflection. Maybe weapon+shield focus, maybe bull's will (though less likely to be necessary in solo?) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
