[quote=“Nori, post:1, topic:999”]Sooo, what’s the best way to find rarer stuff like demon dust and nice nether orbs? I feel a bit stuck since I have a rough time getting past realm level 12 despite being level 90…
Got a Nether smith and I have a couple crappy Orbs that I’m working on using. Planning on a Nether Carnage and either a health based Witch Doctor or the Nightwing Gargoyle.
Right now I’m running: Diamond Paragon, Nightwing Gargoyle, Emerald Paragon, Nether Brim Smith, Topaz Paragon and Fallen Carnage.
I don’t think I’ll keep the Emerald, in fact I might put my other Brim Smith in there instead.[/quote]
I’m assuming when you say Witch Doctor that you mean the Sacrificer, since its Blood Dance ability is the most commonly used.
If you want a Fallen Carnage party, I suggest replacing the Diamond with a Brownie Captain situated directly behind the FC to give it an edge. The Emerald I would replace with a Stronghold, which I would keep in a row with your Topaz to maximize survival. Your Witch Doctor, instead, should have maxed Topaz; the Stronghold will absorb all attacks, so you want Blood Dance to come out as swiftly as possible (though if you want to sacrifice offensive initiative, you can put both Stronghold and Sacrificer in the Topaz row to stonewall enemies right off the bat, though this will mean sacrificing the Captain, probably a Dark Brim Smith). Later on if you find a legendary mat for the Cloak and Dagger ability, the Sacrificer will go invisible when defending, which invariably means that as soon as it gets a turn it becomes untouchable on top of making your other creatures unbelievably tanky, which further favors Speed and means you can swap out your Stronghold for something else.
Prospective setups look like this:
Option A - Offensive:
Brim Smith / Topaz Paragon / Fallen Carnage
Stronghold / Witch Doctor Sacrificer / Brownie Captain
Option B - Defensive:
Witch Doctor Sacrificer / Topaz Paragon / Stronghold
Brim Smith / Dark Brim Smith / Fallen Carnage
I doubt you’re dealing with legendary mats yet or you’d have mentioned them. When you start playing around with them, let us know and we’ll brainstorm a setup.
As for Rare Items, Orbs and Pills can now be reliably found in the Arena, though it’s a tough sell for lower-level characters. You want to maximize Loot Hoarding and Power Balance in general, since they both act as multipliers for your loot value.
