Matsukaze - Summoner Assassin

Character Intro and Overview

Matsukaze is the Assassin of my 7 softcore chars. She is a Ranger/Summoner build which is my favourite build strategy. The front row of her army consists of 7 Revives, which get a lot of fire support from Matsukaze herself, 2 high-lvl Shadow Masters and an act 1 Fire Rogue with offensive auras on equip.

Excess skillpoints are invested in Venom synergies, boosting her Venom damage to over 40k.

Even though her equip isnt complete she has no problems with Hell Baal or most of the Naraku/Domain areas, she got killed once by Fatalstorm, though.

To do list:

  • reach lvl 96
  • get and socket Unknown Hero from my GF char after tourney

Items to look out for:

  • 4 socket Shinobi Cloak with Shadow Master and Venom staffmods
  • better circlet (+1 all, +2 Assa, +2 Shadow skills)
  • better shield (+1 all, shielding, Spirit of the Wolverine, 3 sockets)

  • Why remaining points into Venom synergies, and not in Venom itself?... Also, have yu considered the Offensive barbariam to reduce the targets elemental Resists? It would increase both venom damage from you and all the charge ups and traps from the SMasters, as well as their own venom... no? -- Chando? 06-09-2010 (Wed) 02:37:50
