Diabola - Lightning Sorceress with oskill Firestorm

Character Intro and Overview

Diabola is a Lightning Sorceress, with high level oskill Firestorm as her secondary weapon.

Like Igniss & Frostburn, the basic concept is to use a high level oskill, plus 20 skill points into corresponding elemental mastery, to help dealing with those immune to main tab skills.

Diabola is built around three items related to oskill Firestorm:

  • Unique Devil Mask Diablo's Horns (+30 to Firestorm)
  • Runeword Odd Charm "Diablo" (+28 to Firestorm)
  • LoD Runeword Armor "STONE" (charged Level 16 Molten Boulder, which synergizes Firestorm).

The former 2 pieces combined provide +58 to Firestorm, which obviously outnumbers all other oskills can attain with only 2 pieces. Level 16 MB charges on "STONE" not only raise Firestorm's damage by 80%, but also increase its missile number from 5 to 8.

To take advantage of Diablo's Horns' +Lightning skill dmg & "Diablo"'s reduce enemy lightning resistance, Lightninig skills are chosen as main tab. Because 20 skill points are spent in Fire Mastery and most equipments are not optimized for lightning skills, the damage of Lightning skills (Chain Lightning & Charged Bolts) is comparatively low, but still sufficient to kill most monsters in /p8 Domain.

Since two of the central equipments are about Diablo, this character is named after a feminized name of the Prime Evil. By the way, she also possesses the ability to transform herself into The Lord of Terror, which is kind of funny especially in Chaos Sanctuary.

The 3 key pieces for oskill Firestorm:

  • Diablo's Horns: +30 to Firestorm
  • "Diablo" Odd Charm: +28 to Firestorm
  • "STONE": Level 16 Molten Boulder charges as synergy.

Other equipments are selected towards more +All skill to raise Firestorm slvl. However, due to lack of Knowledgeable (+1 All skill) jewel, most sockets are filled with +Sorceress forged unique jewel.

Good +All skill bonus (+3, plus oskill BC), -15% enemy Fire/Cold/Lightning resists, stat bonus.

Nice +All skill bonus and -16% enemy fire resist. It took a lot of effort to make a second Sun Kanji rune though.
