An Uber Killing Kicksin 1.11 (with notes and tables from Ilkori’s Kicksin Guide)

With the new 1.11 patch, everyone’s hot on the trail to kill an Uber for the Hellfire Torch Large Charm. What I realized was that the players with cookie cutter build (Hammderdin, Windy Druid, WW Barb, Sorc) were screaming for help after hours of trying to kill the last three ubers in Tristam.

My Dragon Talon Kick Assassin was built primarily to hunt Diablo clones in 1.10, and was the ultimate slayer. I thought maybe I should try her on Lilith ….. 10 seconds flat. Then Uber Baal, Meph and Diablo. 6-8 minutes. She was even faster then a smiter or zealot.

First things first….

For those who do not know how to get to the uber trio of Diablo, Mephisto and Baal

Hell Mode (all keys are dropped randomly)

Countess = Terror Key
Summoner = Hate Key
Nihlathak = Destruction Key

Place all three keys in Horadric Cube and transmute them in Act 5 to open a random portal to either Uber Andy, Izzy or Duriel.

Uber Andy = Diablo’s Horn
Uber Izzy = Baal’s Eye
Uber Duriel = Mehphisto’s Brain

Step and repeat starting with the 3 Keys until the Horn, Eye and Brain is collected. Transmute all 3 the Horadric cube to reveal a portal to Tristam. Careful when u step in….. Kill Uber Baal, Diablo and Mephisto to get a Standard of Heros(not sure what it does):

Hellfire Torch:
3+ to random class skills
20 to attributes (varies)
20 to resistance (varies)
and couple of crap mods

So what is a Dragon Talon Kicker? It’s a Kicker to own in PVM and Bosses. This Kicker will kill Diablo Clone in 1.10 in 8-12 seconds. Its main Mods of choice are Prevent Monster Heal and Crushing Blow (amongst many others) applied with the fastest attack of any character. Strafazons are slighty faster but lack even 1/10 the power of a kicker when it comes to Uber Bosses. This Kicker also utilizes Mind Blast and Death Sentry to control crowds.

Here’s what applies to kick damage.
Crushing Blow, Open Wounds, Slow Target
Magic, Elemental, and Poison Damage (not displayed on the character screen)
Knockback
Life/Mana steal/kills
%Chance to Cast on Attack/Strike
+% Damage (except from weapon)
+AR (except on your weapon)
+% AR (from anywhere)
Blind, Freeze, Prevent Monster Heal
MF and Gold find

Properties that do not work with kicks:
Deadly/Critical Strike
Enhanced Damage from equipment
+% Damage to Demons/Undead
+ Min / Max damage (so no 3/20/20 charms for kickers)

Kick Damage Display Bug - For Dragon Talon and Dragon Flight, only the physical damage is listed. Magic, elemental and poison damage is still added to kicks, but it isn't displayed on the screen. And it still has not been fixed in the new patch!!!!

Main objectives

Kicking Speed – 7 fps initial 2 fps next 6 kicks WOW (at level 37 its 7 kicks)
Crushing Blow - As high as possible
Hit Recovery - Try for 48, then 86
Damage Reduction - 50%
Resists - Maxed in Hell and then some

Stats

Strength - Enough for equipment
Dexterity – enough for max block. Your gonna need it
Life – rest
Energy – none

Skill Points

Venom: Max
Dragon Talon: Max
Death Sentry: Max (for radius)
Fire Blast: 18 (for shooting Death Sentry 11 times)
1 pt in all shadow and trap skills except wake of inferno
Rest in Burst of Speed/Mind Blast/Lighting Sentry. Whatever u favor.

The main thing with the skill points is the u have 1 in each and Maxed Venom/Dragon and a few in Death Sentry. Skills are very flexible on this sin. Now for the fun part.

Equipment. I only included what I deemed necessary information

Weapon: Is this weapon perfect for this kicker or what? For those who can’t afford the this Super Kicker weapon, Fleshripper is still a incredible for a Dragon Talon.
Last Wish 6 Socket Swords/Hammers/Axes

6% Chance To Cast Level 11 Fade When Struck (its nice to auto cast fade when u most needed)

Helm: Although COA and Delirium is nice, Helm is not really important for this sin. She can make do just fine with Shakos.

Crown of Ages with 15 res 15 ias facet. Need to Stack Resistance and Ias when I’m in Fade is nice for Kick speed)

End Gear Results from needed Main Objectives…and then some

Hit Blinds Target


Strategy

Oh yes there is a strategy. No gungho, Me Tarzan U Jane stuff here. With Izzy, Duriel, Lilith it’s run in and kick ass but in Tristam you better be careful. Don’t bother with tp’s since you can’t open any and bo and all that other stuff BEFORE going in.

Take the portal and runnnnnn to a far corner where you can lure one boss at a time. There is no way to win if three bosses and their 70 minions are hitting you. The good news is that the Ubers tend to stay in one spot while only their minions chase you. They wont spawn other minion if you are not near them. With MB, convert a few and lay some death sentry. Dragon Talon will easily provide corpses for the traps.

Once the wave of minions are lessened, lure one Uber where the other can’t interfere. Dragon Talon’s 2 fps and 85% Crushing Blow will turn a uber’s life down to almost nothing in a matter of seconds. They spawn more minions really quick so back up a little to kill a few minions lay some more Death Sentry and finish of an Uber!!!!

Try not to die if you are soloing since the minions will actually “Camp” over your body. But if you do die, cast burst of speed then shadow master as a decoy for the minions to chase while u are spamming Mind blast. I turned the wrong corner once and got clobbered by all ubers and minions at once. After a few ink’s, using the above-mentioned tactic I was able to get my body back in less than 30 seconds. First killing the 3 Ubers of Tristam: 10:20 minutes, 3+ sin Hell Torch. Second Time: 6-8 minutes, 3+sorc Hell Torch for my poor level 70 hammerdin friend hiding in town. On those 2 runs I died 4 times, but from the number of people I saw dying and screaming over bnet, make sure to keep a pile of gold by Malah for potions and mercs. Although I was fast, I was very careful and ran to town in any sign of trouble.

I hope this guide will help those other who do not have four super friends with auradins/smiters/javazon/zealots to help them kill the Ubers. This assassin is pretty cheap to make and is still quite effective with modest gear.

Please don’t try to play PVP with this though. CB sucks PVP and the knock back kicks the player out of reach of your 2 fps attack.

Hello

Nice guide, nice strategy, however a tad expensive. I use alternative gear (most my high-end stuff went for my enigma-warcry keyfinder), that works good as well.

I maxed fade, since fade gives you 1% PDR each level, so it pretty much takes care of all your PDR needs (ok, not really, but hey) . For shield I use an upped mosers, it has high block and 63% resall. The trick is the armor, I went with Guardian Angel, allowing me 90% resall in hell (and a LOT higher blocking, faster, too, allowing for less dex -> more life).

Ok, now about the weapons and CB. The real killer is CB, but it works in a messed up way (at least it worked so in 1.10, and my experience in 1.11 seems to confirm that this stayed in the game): the chance of successful CB is determined by the SUM of the CB on you, but the effects are applied ONCE PER ITEM, thus making wearing multiple source more effective... This means, that if you use your fleshripper and shoes with a CB glove and CB helm, your kill speed will double. Go try and be amazed :)

Ok, about alternate weapons: if you're cheapshit like me, you can't afford to BO yourself. However, you CAN curse the damn monsters! The way to go is either Lacreator (amp) or Lawbringer (decrep). Sure, you loose your life tap, but if you have enough leech, the higher damage will pay off (mind you, not against meph -- there you need the tap or you die).

That's about all there is to it, a less effective variant that is a LOT cheaper, it might be viable for more.

ITD works only on minions and the number of minions in Uber tristam is nothing to luagh at

Venom and Dragon Talon maxed is nice but I would really emphasize death sentry if you ever plan to kill ubers AND Minions

Azurewrath would not be suitable for this build. I can not think of much suitable weapons but a fleshripper dagger is cheap and ez to come by. On the subject of armor, I wouldn't suggest anthing other than a Chains of Honor. The Uber Mephisto has conviction aura and will ripp apart your resistance along with the 100 or so elemental damage minions that springs up everywhere.

*EDIT: I have organized your triple-post into a single, space-efficient post. It's very respectable that you ahve taken the time to reply to each question, but the lack of organization has tarnished this respectability. Please reply in a single post whenever possible.~Sean

As Ata pointed out quite astutely, the 'Ignore Target's Defense' mod does not apply to Bosses, so only the Minions would be affected. Please remind our readers of this descrepancy.

Not as mainstream as most would like, but still a highly distinctive build which seems to perform well on paper. If anyone would like to test the effectiveness of mustangjake2073's build on Non-Ladder, their input would be a valued.

Mustangjake2073, if you could add some key screenshots of your Uber Tristram encounter with the Kicksin, it would help our readers visualize the power of your build.

Otherwise, this is a commendable contribution which should be acknowledged for its distinction as a lesser-known build.

*STICKIED*

Peace and blessings,
Sean
