Default Enchanting and Build Advice Thread

For those seeking the help of more experienced players.

Let em start, what should I reforge on this Thunderfury? The weapon ain't bad, but I wanted to use it on my Monk... Change str to dex or enchant something else and use it for a Barb?Should I wait for another TF with Dex to drop and level a Barb for this one?

Depends on whether or not you really want to play your monk a lot. If you're planning on playing a barb anyway, save it for him/her and reroll the damage, as you have quite a lot of room there still (1490 max afaik).

You already have a socket on it, so you have the luxury of deciding to either maximize the damage for a barb, or reroll to dex.

I'd add though that the weapon is pretty much BiS for several monk specs, and barbs prefer % elemental damage weapons such as Devastator/Burning Axe of Sankiss for Fire (very strong build).

Either way it's a strong weapon - a great optimizable high dps 1h for any barb spec with a strong proc, or a decent monk weapon that could have higher dps roll.


I'll hang around this thread a lot, I consider myself something of a Diablo nut and theorycrafter, so I'll be able to help most folks out ;P

I think I'll keep it for the barb. Mostly because I got an Andariel's Visage with str. (Although... now that I think about it, that Visage has +lightning% and a Crusader skill, so it probably won't be used for a fire build. )

There's several viable Barb and Crusader builds with lightning too =)
Lightning WW Barb is pretty popular atm, Thunderfury would work perfectly with it. Crusader obviously prefers a 2hander unless you go for a block-based build with procs.

Yeah, I'm actually playing a lightning Hammerdin, so it all worked out. Simply turned the skill into +Blessed Hammer, and whenever I switch to the Heaven's Fury build I can enchant it again for my, as of now, level 8 Barb.

I recommend Fist of the Heavens - Fissure, I much prefer it, keeps you much more mobile and if you use it smartly you can zap entire quadrants of areas with it.

I've found that Divine Well, the holy variant, is by far the most effective rune of Fist of the Heavens however.

Finally got myself a Thundergod's Vigor.

Why is the game giving me all this Lightning gear when I'd finally given up and decided to go Holy?

Same thing happened to me -_-
Got a Thundergod's, a Schaefer's and a 20% Lightning SoJ....

Yet even at 58% Lightning and only 20% Holy damage, the Divine Well rune far outperforms Fissure for Fist of the Heavens.

But the mix works ok, the % lightning affects both the Thundergod's and the Schaefer's procs as well as the Provoke effect.

After 3 Rifts with no legs at all, I finally got my Hellskull from Kadala, two legs to disenchant and my third class set piece.
Anyways, should I go for vit or Wrath regen?

So still no Golden Scourge for me.

Why does the cool wolf flail have to be one handed?

(Have any new flails been added since Blizzard started this season business? I hated that the best build, back when I was still playing, involved swords...)

At long last, I finally got the Ancient variant with the stats I want. Now, if only I had a few spare gifts to add a socket....

I haven't bothered to compare the bracer's stats, so I'm saving both. I saved the weapon for reforging and to see how many I'd get before getting the one I want.

I also keep some duplicates for my other characters, if it's not a class item.

Not bad, eh?

Now I just need to get that CDR up to 10.0%... Sadly, I have no DB left, after trying to do so 49 times.

Sure, Dex and AD could be a bit higher, but it's one of the better Ancient Lion's Claws I've seen.
