Orochimaru - Hydra Summoner


Character Intro and Overview

Orochimaru is a Necromancer that uses Hydra as source of spell damage while having powerful summons at the same time.

Hydra may not be the best damage spell that necros have, but it is in the summoning skill tree (boosted by +summons gear) and its synergies (Fire Golem and Summon Vampire) are very helpful boosting the "real" summons.

On top of that, Hydra does elemental damage which is more easily boosted (masteries, dstoning, Conviction aura) than magic or poison damage.

To do list:

  • get Unknown Hero
  • find a good Fire Mastery ring to free weapon slot
  • complete forgings and dstonings for more life
  • maple fire skill damage to weapon
