Okay, I started a new elementalist, im thinking of going pure melee.... you know, just "enchantments" etc etc, to boost the elemental damage i deal when fighting melee.

I think i'm about lvl 10 now. (dont get that much time to play)....
I've maxed Earth Enchantment & Brimstone so far. Its nice to see monsters flying so early in the game. :happy:

This is kinda what i'm aiming for = Titan Calc Build (http://www.titancalc.com/TitanCalc.asp?mastery=Elementalist&master1=8&master2=1&sa=0&m1=32-0-10-0-0-8-0-0-12-0-0-0-6-12-0-0-1-12-0-8-0&m2=32-12-0-8-1-12-0-12-0-0-10-0-8-0-8-0-0-0-12-0-0)

What do you guys think?

Think this will work quite well? Or epic phail?

You can check out my thread 'Crazy melee elementalist'. Some people gave some very good tips on it. Just invest a lot in intelligence and a bit in strength and don't forget dexterity. With high intelligence you'll be dealing very high elemental damage. And for that matter I'll also suggest volcanic orb. It makes the monster crowds fly.

Hey Matseb, Thanx for your response!
Yeah i checked out your thread a while ago! That kinda inspired me...

You see, the thing is, i dont want a damage dealing spell like Volcanic Orb,....

I wanna go enchantments & buffing spells.

You guys think this will work?

I don't think it's going to work very well..but at least it's something different.

It should work good up to legendary...I have a kung fu melee elementalist that only use squall and a LB from time to time and she is not using any weapon. The only thing that is stopping her right now is the legendary hydra, so I guess that using a weapon, you should be able to go further than that.

Hahaha okay cool.... Yeah Cookiemonster i saw your thread about your kung fu elementalist. Hats off to you man! (You're f***in brave)

Yeah i was going for the idea to assign squall on my RMB and normal attack on left. That combined with a lot of enchantments on me, that'll hopefully make me uber! :D

I have been wondering,... does the wisp's enchantment really work THAT well? (in terms of boosting the player's cold+lightning dmg?) Doesn't the wisp die easily?


PS. Thanx 4 the feedback everyone! ;-)

The Wisp has 99% to dodge attacks and projectiles, so it doesn't die easily. AoE is devastating for it.

You won't be having the +% elemental dmg on you all the time, because the Wisp doesn't cast it on you instantly after the bonus disappears. It's still on quite often.

Wisp is quite good actualle...my melee prophet liiiikes it a whole lot.

I see I see. So just pure fight with enchanted swords and axes. Must be fun, but I can never play without casting something. Keep us tooned.

Thats it! Now you see my idea! :razz:

I will be casting "some" stuff.... like the wisp & squall & stone form, but the rest will be enchantments.

Yeah i'll probably start playing on monday again, as i never play games on the weekend... :( (I stay at my girlfriend's house on weekends)

So i'll probably give you guys an update on monday or tuesday! :rockon:

Sure thing. Looking forward to seeing how your melee elementalist goes. We have quite a few of them now between us, as CookieMonster is thinking of making a second one for himself. Perhaps they all can form a team. LoL!

Hey guys! Okay i only got to play with her a bit yesterday.
She's lvl 17 atm and in Memphis.
Her biggest challenge so far was the Minotaur Lord, for my defense sucks...

She's doing much better now, large mobs last 2 seconds (at most) against my ring of flame! (And shrine of Mastery rocks!)

This is her skill distribution so far = Titan Calc Build (http://www.titancalc.com/TitanCalc.asp?mastery=Elementalist&master1=8&master2=1&sa=0&m1=5-0-4-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0&m2=10-12-0-8-0-12-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0)

The epic items she's wearing =
Oedipus Armor (http://www.gamebanshee.com/cgi-bin/search/banshee_search.pl?_layout=TitanQuest_Items_Page&_cgifunction=search&TitanQuest_Items.id=107)
Theban Crested Helmet (http://www.gamebanshee.com/cgi-bin/search/banshee_search.pl?_layout=TitanQuest_Items_Page&_cgifunction=search&TitanQuest_Items.id=263)
Ardent Greaves (http://www.gamebanshee.com/cgi-bin/search/banshee_search.pl?_layout=TitanQuest_Items_Page&_cgifunction=search&TitanQuest_Items.id=279)
Bristlebash (http://www.gamebanshee.com/cgi-bin/search/banshee_search.pl?_layout=TitanQuest_Items_Page&_cgifunction=search&TitanQuest_Items.id=1476)
Thornwall (http://www.gamebanshee.com/cgi-bin/search/banshee_search.pl?_layout=TitanQuest_Items_Page&_cgifunction=search&TitanQuest_Items.id=1598)

Yeah i know it's not the best, but it's the strongest i have for her at the moment....

Will post screenshots as soon as i get the chance!

I think 1 point in Stone form is enough.
Any reason you are not using energy shield and reflection?

Mmmm.... to be honest i haven't though about energy shield yet..... maybe i'll just drop stone form and go for energy shield.
Stone form isn't my style of play anyways...... i'm more of a guerilla tactics guy... :rockon:

Wow! Level 17 still and Memphis already. My one is quite the opposite as she has a diadem with +10% XP gained, so she is higher on levels than where she is.
