I will start by saying that I never followed any pattern for example 3Vit and 2Str.
After I farmed enough HP+ Max life gear with high STR rings I only spent enough Attribute points in order to equip the gear that I had. I did not have the highest Tier of 291 str Armour top equiped either instead I chose the lower 278 str Tier.
I did not add any STR achievs either as I did Not want to be bound to STR achievments. After enough points are spent to equip all of your gear pump the rest of the points into Vit.
There is a lvl 49 [Job] Quest on heaven island that offers an Attribute reset, its chained from other job quests. The quests its self requires you to kill some bosses in relic zones you might want to get help if you havnt saved your attribute from the startEquipment and Preperation.
If you have done as I suggested and farmed enough gear and Gold then its time to enchant it and try get the best possible outcome for all the gear you have.
Do Not respec untill you are happy with all of your gear including Trinkets because after the respec farming with the build that im going to lay out is not much fun as you will have no AoE other than Sever from the Newbie skill trinket that was suggested for you to keep. If you dont have this necklace and would like it then go create a new BL and mail yourself the necklace.Achievments.
You will want to add All of the Vit + dmg achievments to increase your HP pool
even further, and ofcourse they add DMG aswell. I spent a lot of time AFK while not playing mythos to get the best achievments possible, after all time played is achievments gained.Health and Mana.
After I reset my attributes and equiped my gear with all of my achievments my total Health pool was 48k. My mana pool was very low due to not spending any points in wisdom but do not worry you wont need that much mana with this build.
With thick skin activated my HP pool is 60k.Its Not Life Leech.Before we go any further id like to talk a little about Life Draw and how it is calculated. For example Vamp strike passive for Piercing Flurry will NOT steal the enemys HP to replenish yours. The Life Draw is based on the ammount of DMG that you do to the enemy divided by the total Draw to replenish your HP.
Here is a very easy Example
If you do 1000dmg to the mob and your life draw is 5% to Draw 10%HP
then every time you hit that 5% to draw 10%HP with dmg of 1000 you will draw a maximum of 100HP.
It does seem very low it even seems like its not worth while but life draw does stack from other items and over the duration of your attempts to solo a relic I can bet you that little life draw will help you in the long run.
Sorted now we know its not life Leech lets move on to the skills.Skills that define a warrior.
Piercing Flurry only needs 1 point, Perforate 1 and vamp strike 8
Thick Skin Maxed and all of its passives.
Blood Might Maxed 5 points total.
Hard Blood 1 point
Blood Hunger Max 5 points.
Parry 1 point
Blade specialist 5 > Adapt of Edges 5
Deep wounds 1 > Blade Shards 1
Focusing Wounds 1 point
Furious Focus 6 > Blinding focus 6 > Focus Mastery 8
Razer Aura 5Lets Talk skills and there usage.
To start of ill explain why ive only spent 1 point in Hard blood, the reason being that there is an even further Defence Increase when combined with Blood Might.
Both of these skills will only work when the enemy is bleedling and they do need to be stacked.
Piercing Flurry has to be kept on 1 skill point or the mana consumption is just to much you can add dmg with blood might and the passives ive selected above.
Parry is pretty straight forward, 1 point for 5% block why thank you I think ill take that to increase my 27% shield to 32% block. If you have a 32% block shield even beter but still take 1 in parry.
Blood hunger will Replenish 10% of your HP per mob around you as long as they are bleeding, the more mobs around you the beter it is.
Furious Focus yet again straight forward, you want dmg dmg dmg and critical.Ultimate Tips for an Ultimate BloodLetter.
- The very first thing you will want to do before you aproach the final boss is to get those buffs stacked from the mobs bleeding around you. First stack blood might then stack Hard Blood and hover your mouse over the debuff timer to check they are at there maximum buff. BM 510% > HB 700.
- The single most important aspect of being able to solo any relic is your HP and how you recover it, You will want to try and save monsters DO NOT kill them keep them alive they are your life line and will keep you alive as long as you use blood hunger correctly. Try to get the attention of just 1 or 2 monsters at any given time while maintaining DPS on the boss keep as many of the mobs alive as possible with 1 or 2 bleeding behind you for blood hunger.
- Always be aware of your Buffs watch the timer or count down in your head Never let the debuff timer run out while your killing the main boss or you need to stack your buffs all over again.
- Smelt all your Armour one time for the 100% chance to success cant go wrong right ? and why not (any more smelts at your own risk).
Try smelt your weapon as much as possible I would suggest you find some weapon with the Title "Legendary" on it as these weapons offer more base dmg.
I would maybe go to 6 or 7 smelts and always use minor protection aids when the chance % starts getting low, Smelting weapons will increase the base DMG and smelting Armour will increase the Armour Base.
- Find a low level Necklace (lvl 39) that you can socket easy that has a lot of life because most high level trinkets are hard to socket as the materials required to socket high lvl trinkets are hard to get (tier 10), and tier 10's drop from the relic main boss.
- PvP, this build was not made in any way to be PvP viable I only focused on pure PvE.Last Words.
I made this guide because a lot of people where asking for advice on how to solo and end game boss without using the 500 pot method.... I must say its gone beter than I ever thought it would and am very pleased with my efforts with gear that is not even fully enchanted I have managed to solo a good Few relics even some hard ones just to make sure the build has what it takes. I set out to solo the Main boss only after all that is what people are wanting to kill. I only use about 1 or 2 mana pots per main boss and most times I didnt even use Health potions.
I have achieved this in very little time with very average gear, I did not want to add skill sockets to prove that it can be done by any Average Joe who doesnt have a lot of time to work on skill sockets.
Good luck and if you have any questions on the Build or infact any questions on a specific relic then please do ask. Ive included a screen shot of all my gear below to give you guys/gals and example of how average my gear is.
Some of the gear is ok but in time im sure ill have much beter with all gear enchanted to to the max.
