**Character Intro and Overview [#i903638b]

This character is a classic strafer and absolutely rules the domain primarily due to having a great merc and two maxed valks with the right mouse button free to re-summon them quickly.  I have tried using one of my nice 0skill rings on my right mouse button and it does improve damage some, but this build is so strong as-is it really doesn't need it.
This is my old Strafer who is mainly a very strong gold find and magic find character using the Waves and Noir sets.

I died a lot in the domain until I maxed resists and got 2911 life so I would say it is pretty much the minimum for the build. I use the Act2 Might Merc, and when I initially built this character I used the merc set/Achilles'.  This worked ok, but he died often on the end bosses in the domain and the treant pack etc. I admit I splurged a bit on my upgraded merc equipment, but it was probably the final key to having a successful domain dominator. 

Bambi herself was relatively cheap to assemble, using Atlas Trust, Noir's and Waves sets. For those newer players wanting to try this, the noir helm is usually the difficult piece to get.  You can get lucky with a drop or chitting, but most likely you will chit/get 3 unique exceptional helms that you can base-up and cube.  The build is so strong that I really didn't have to maple the bow at all.

I set up this character to be a duel purpose gold find and magic find since it was one of my earlier characters.  If I had to do it over again I would have it all magic find since I have another strafer with 3000% gold find.  Basically, this character is all about getting top level uniques and lots of rares in the domain.
I decided to change things around so radically that I made Bambi2 for the Hall to show the differences.
**Stats and Attributes [#f7b45bb7]

All Dex

The waves set pretty much guarantees either amp or decrepify is on full-time.

As you can see below, crushing blow, open wounds and deadly strike are maxed - AR is super high and 170% to demons.  
As you can see below, crushing blow, open wounds and deadly strike are maxed - AR is super high and 170% to demons. I have 34% life steal and that is important to survive the various elemental damage in the domain along with the good resists.  If I were to max this char I would add more life and more life steal - more damage is not needed (never thought I would say that!). 

I saved a couple of points by having deadly strike and pierce large charms in my inventory.  

I also have 100% shorter poison duration, that helps considerably.

**Equipment [#i0eaf287]

Really pretty standard stuff, Waves and Noir all socketed with good jewels. I have all unique charms close to perfect and forged +Amazon. It wasnt horribly expensive to forge and dstone the resists and %life. This is probably my least expensive end-game character overall.

I have a perfect +8 Anniliation Atlas Trust, but I use it on another character and because this strafer works so well I have not needed to reroll to perfect. I have an Insight runeword chest that I tried on this character because it has lots of +skills and significant magic find, but Annihilation is really "the bomb" and Bambi just didn't feel the same without it.  Because of diminishing returns on MF, I decided to keep the Atlas Trust.

Most of my filler charms have some +damage etc, but since I diverted my best damage charms to my melee characters these charms are my best that have both GF and MF.

**Merc and Merc Equipment [#pf8d0597]

Showing off my fancy runeword polearm and ethereal Chains of Binding (probably one of my best finds ever). I show my favorite merc amulet - plenty of dstone space left. My two rings are just standard rings of vengence for the extra damage dstoned with 80% life steal.  I could easily get this merc to 12k life if it was needed.

My two rings are just standard rings of vengence for the extra damage dstoned with 80% life steal.  Notice how much defense this merc has with the defiance amulet forging!

Additionally this merc has 33% damage reduction, 16 magic reduced, 12 damage reduced, 14 lightning absorb, 11 cold absorb.

All other items except for the amulet and the merc forged chest/pole/helm are forged +1 all skills to build up his innate might auora.
