Post by Nurbz » Sat Apr 21, 2012 9:54 am

Starting Traits:
Lucky
Wizard's Apprentice
Brilliant Mind
Military Training

Note: You must take -5 from Strength, Dexterity, and Spirit and -2 from Constitution to fit these traits.

In-Game Runes:
Savant
Gladiator
Archer
Undead Hunter / Saboteur / Prospector (I usually took Prospector for random mine claims)
30 Dexterity

End Stats:
Dexterity - 150
Constitution - 100
Intelligence - 105

Note: I usually maxed out Intelligence, took Constitution to 70, maxed out Dexterity, and then put my last 30 points into Constitution.

Skills:
Bow - 120%
Light Armor - 153%
Dodge - 120%
Way of the Gaana - 133% (Gold)
Archery - 95%

Note: You could take some points from Bow to put into Dodge, although I liked the extra bit of ATR for Naargal's Dart.

Spells:
Hide - 18
Sneak - 40
Grace of the Panther - 1
Call the Sky's Fury - 40
Phaedra's Fury - 30
Vashteera's Blessing - 1

Hematite Ring of the Thanes (12 Int/12 Con)
Hematite Ring of the Mastermind (24 Int)
Peerless Windbow of Oblivion/Truth/Mentalist

Note: The rings are really personal preference. You could do x2 24 Int, or x2 12 Int/12 Con.

Lower End Gear:
Truewrought/Aegis Raptor Hood of Stoneskin
Truewrought/Aegis Raptor Vest of Stoneskin
Truewrought/Aegis Raptor Sleeves of Stoneskin

Nurb,

Not that it would make that much difference but drop Wizard's Apprentice and add a 10 int rune later on if you really like that stat spread. You'll get 2 more con at the end. (150/102/105)

I've actually pondered that option before, because I would also get 5 more Spirit for a little extra mana in addition to the +2 Con. Usually when I made this build it was at a point where +10 Int runes were rare to come by, but if I had the rune available I'd go with your suggestion for sure.

I would take out 10 points from savant mana regen, i know youre a caster and all but its not excessively helpful at 20 as opposed to 10. The stare I would bring down to 1 point instead of 5. I would GM phaedras, it is dex/con/str buff, so youre getting more than just 5 stat points.

I noticed that your atr was looking pretty weak on your bow, I'm not sure about your spells but I would also suggest using some int/gaana or con/gaana jewelry. They give slightly less spell damage but give a huge atr boost on both your bow and your spells.

Phaedras scales horribly ans since this is a nuketress the dex/con/str have even less favorable returns.

If I'm not mistaken you need 5 pts in the stare to ground unnatural flyers, sure you have grounding shot but it has a recast.

The 20 pts in the mana regen is very useful, you'll need all you can get on this toon.

Just wondering why no one uses fleet of foot on a huntress? I contemplated building one with it but didn't. Any thought?

No need to really keep up, just let the poison dot hit and laugh as anything that can outrun you dies to it. Also 2 sprints and +mov speed on catform.

Not a wasted rune, but not necessary

Yes huntresses are great for killing scouts and this build aswell as alot of others will work fine aslong as the scout is dumb enough to come out of stealth.

The last bit particularly, the scout will either leave you alone, which I my book is a win, or he will wait until you have your hands a bit full, maybe have made a slightly optimistic pull, and then have you.

This template is outdated. For killing scouts, and in general imo, you're much better going either all con/int or all dex/int and wearing huntress pierce stacked MA, con/hr jewels and training dodge. No decently played huntress should go down to a scout anyway.

The bolded is rather true.

Figured I'd chime in as the creator of this thread/build. I haven't touched this template in four years (or really given much mind to Shadowbane at all for that matter) but I'd argue it isn't that outdated. I might change some stats/point allocations around here and there for efficiency, but I liked what this build could accomplish when I was playing correctly. But of course I think this just boils down to a difference of playstyles, which I can respect and understand. I'll definitely tinker with the build though once I'm playing again. I just enjoy high-defense, assassin-esque characters and that's what this particular build provided me.

Why would you tie up precious creation points on the two int runes, one of which is terribly inefficient, if you're just going to end with 105 int? Take a 20 int in game and do something more useful with those creation points.

This was brought up earlier in the thread and I have no disagreements. The build was more catered to people who didn't have the time/money to get the rarer +5/10/15/20 runes. I've played several versions of this character with different stat spreads so I only posted the one that I still had saved. Like I said, I'll tinker with the build and post my updates.

I think it's outdated in today's environment. With the changes to cat form and the HR buff I think you're much better off going o-stance with lots of con, spiked dodge and resists but that's just my opinion. I actually prefer playing high def rogues and I loved my huntress on Mourning but with the popularity of bird bow rogues there are too many def cuts out there.

This is so true. If def cuts could stack in some situations you would have a screen full of def cuts. On my nuketress I rarely, if ever, get to fight just one scout by itself. Its always 2 scouts or a scout/thief combo. I play mostly in precise stance these days because of the constant atr debuffs.

Def huntresses in today's shadowbane aren't as effective as a con/int pierce specced MA build. I've played around with vorg LA def huntresses and with the perpetual def cuts from the 11ty billion scouts playing it will actually make killing a scout a little harder. If you are a def huntress vs an aracoix skydancer/glad/runecaster scout and he def and atr cuts you then he now has the upper hand on you because he has more survivability. With a con/int resist MA dodge huntress then the def cut won't hurt you and his bow shots will hit for a lot less per shot giving the huntress the edge in the fight because they can stance dance from O to precise if needed where as the scout is stuck in def stance if he wants to have a chance.

I can't comment on the current environment as I've yet to play the emulator, but if that's the case then I see the benefits to going that route as well. I'll have to try out both builds and see what the results are like. Personally though I never felt too vulnerable or crippled by DEF cuts. You're gonna face ATR cuts as an offensive build anyways, so it's the same counter in a different form. I just liked the versatility of having that defense to fall back on when you needed it. I usually stayed in Precise Stance vs. most rogues anyways with this build (I had like 45 pierce resist with my build though so that helped.). This isn't meant to downplay either route, of course. They are both viable in their own regard and have their own sets of strengths/weaknesses. I'll test a bunch of stuff out and update this template when I can.

So what starting runes would be ideal for a croix nuketress? I'm not a huge fan of the double int runes but they seem the best way to get decent high int on a croix.
