would such a build work? Understand that it could be a challenge in inferno, and maybe hell because what Ive heard the dogs really sucks later game (They already do, in normal :<)

well, I am not the one getting hit, my pets are.. duuh
Well, if you have 800 life on hit, each of your pets will do 13.3 damage per second. (Oneshot pets with 60 sec recast)
That is if they don't just die to some ground effect.
you think your pets can take hits any better? rofl
it was a question you arrogant kid.

26/05/2012 21:04Posted by SharkajI'm trying the thorn build, I guess with some decent armor you can keep your pets alive for a second hit, allowing the thorns to deal the damage.
thanks, finally a decent answer :) well, I will definatly try it out even though I suspect it wont be that viable, but if you get enough armor and life reg maybe your pets could be pretty decent in higher difficulites afterall
but in hell the mobs start to kill your gargantum faster than you could recast and with tanky + thorn gear you wont do any dmg by yourself (the dogs are by far earlier useless)
on inferno your gargantum will be a 1-3 hit depending on your life and def stats... but even some normal mobs start having 500k+ hp
calc by yourself how much thorn dmg and hits you need to kill just ONE mob
thorn is almost useless, even for melees... using that passiv would be a waste on higher difficulties
test and enjoy it as long the mobs are weak enough
Anyway, good luck - and have fun experimenting ^^
And on a sidenote, don't worry about the nay-sayers. A player in EVE-Online long ago was ridiculed for proposing a similar passive setup - now everyone uses it.
and run with Bad meciine and Leeching dogs..
Lets say you waer 10 items with 2000 dmg on hit each, that 20.000 dmg per hit. Each of you Pets can take 1 or 2 hits b4 they die. Mr. hulk can take 3.. Thats roughly 140.000 dmg you can deal. Then you have to wait another 60 seconds to resummon you pets.
Give it a few weeks, maybe some stuff will be rebalanced.
and who's pets are still getting one shot? mine can take around 10 hits...
There are several build ideas which will work very well the problem with these builds isn't using them it's the farm / money needed for said build.
I am aiming for 852 resist all min (from All Resist increase), 200 res from int (meaning 2k int), up to 2.5k life regen (not sure if I'll get there) 5k-10k thorns, then making sure I have the CC effect on the items which I'm using (helm with fear shoulders with freeze etc...) then using the pets with the AoE damage abilities (which proc those CCs) and using AoE damage abilities.
