View Full Version : How would you mod your favorite scythe?

While everyone agrees that different builds demand different scythe setups, what would be your general choice?


I thought of a

Zealous
Scythe of
Fortitude +30

many +2/+3 Energy swings in PvE.

But a Sundering Scythe (combine with Wild Blow) or a Vampiric Scythe (5/1 !!!) for sure have their merits, too.

I also like the Icy Mod of the Preorder Scythe, it is good as long as you do not fight rangers. Plus I hope there will be some cold vulnerable desert creatures out there.

But how about the 20% Enchantments mod? Are there really that many enchantments that you want to extend by 1/5? I often used enchantments just to trigger their effect by using a scythe attack to remove them immediately.

I will most likely be using the preorder weapon and adding either a zealous or a vamp mod and a +29 fortitude. (+30 is too expensive)

Scythes!

I'm planning to try Vampiric, Zealous and Sundering.

What worried me was when I used the priest of balthazar to look at scythe mods they seemed to be lesser than other classes. Like I could only find an armor+4 mod not +5. Is this just me not pvping enough to unlock such things or a subtle way of balancing scythes?

Either way, I'd say a zealous mod against mobs really would be pretty fearful.

Not sure about having a favourite scythe just yet though. With any class I always like to have varying weapons for builds.

But my pre-order one will do nicely til I get a green or a good gold.

Probably elemental, vamp, and zealous of defense. I'll be aiming for all four elements. Inherent "inscription" either while enchanted, or 15^50 depending on playstyle.

Zealous Death's Grip Scythe of Enchanting

I have a build planned that would like the Enchanting mod :D

Zealous is just for the energy.

At least 4 scythes( including pre-order one)

Icy pre-order one
Earth for Earth paryers skills
Vampiric( That you seem to hit 3 in one strike means 15 health per strike= yummeh! )
Something with 15^50 or 15 While under enchantment( since D's have a lot a lot a lot of enchantments to play with)

That's just what happens when you have nothing unlocked. It defaults to the lowest level upgrade and you work your way up from there.

First of all i would love to have a one handed +5 sword with enchant longer and a 12 foci for one slot. since i have a build that doesnt attack and uses enchantments for AoE damage ( and the hiting for like 2-3 damage would go perfect for those nasty reversal monks. Gain 2 life punk!!! )

But i love the enchant longer mod first off. This would only be for builds that need enchants lasting for mystic sweep. (+40 damage per hit ???? FTW!!!! )

also zealous is mainly for pve and you will see alot of elem damage for pvp damage giving.

+30 health is going to be popular as well since the lowered lvl of armor compaired to warrior and paragon.

I'll be going for Zealous ... of Enchanting, maybe Zealous ... of Defence.

I'm thinking

Zealous Scythe of Defense

I mean a dervish needs armor, right!

I'm going to get 2 Scythes...

Zealous "15% while Enchanted Scythe" of Fortitude(Defence if can't find the mod)

and a

Vampiric "15% while Enchanted Scythe" of Defence(Fortitude if i can't find the mod)

Tne Zealous one will be the preorder scythe modded to save money and because i'm going to need the zealous mod first(and i find that scythe to be damn sexy) and the other one will hopefully be dropped or will come from a chest, or there is a green that matches my wanted scythe perfectly...
