    I moved up to TL130 and finally managed to round up a mob that I wasn't able to one-shot with Heatseekers. I finished Season by completing TL145 with Stalker BH, so I am still a bit below that with my Havoc BH. I will have a better idea how close I can get to that level once I craft some jewelry to tweak my survivability stats a bit.

    TheExorcist I am testing with a 6 piece Havoc set using level 77 Celestial Igniters pistol set to get the extra Tracer Ammo stacks. I have 3 level 77 pieces: helmet and gloves are also celestial. Since they offer damage bonuses, helmet and gloves were a priority during ANB crafting. I also got a dropped level 77 legendary Havoc pants. The rest of the pieces could still use upgrades which I will work on if I decide to play Havoc in next ANB. I put CD on every piece of gear and jewelry, but I probably could use more CR since my CR is currently just around 45.6%. I am using a ToS and Charm of Qol that are both level 74. I am mainly using the Charm of Qol because it is one of the few unique trinkets in my stash that has Fire Damage. Magnetic Trap (for pulling mobs) and Heatseekers are both Fire Damage, so I have it on trinkets and belt. I am currently equipped with a level 74 Assassin's belt because it gives me Sticky Bombs, though I probably should break down and craft a Belt of Ordnance to get the additional 50% Heatseekers bonus to see if those bonuses stack on top of my existing bonuses. I also have a BoM with 99% Heatseeker damage boost, which I feel is a must have item for pushing the Havoc build.

    Through TL130 it is mostly just moving through the map to get mobs moving toward me, then locking them down with Magnetic Trap, and finishing them off with Rapid Fire and Heatseekers. I have 3 healers from my Stalker build, so I can also use Vortex to pack enemies in tight to get the most out of my explosions.

    Ozymandius or any BH expert
    Would all of you be so kind (later after all this testing ends etc) to set say: a simple & step by step havoc build for all of us to use as a Guidance. We have the step by step flower Protector build by Arionthe. We very much like a: Havoc build. Wat say all of you?

    I'm looking forward to see what you find out. I'm new to bh and only been playing for about 4 months so don't have the experience with bh or the legendary gear. The IM, trinkets, and jewelry are borrowed from my mage and he wants them back. I did clear tl115 in a little over 4 minutes with Epic lvl havoc gear so its definitely has promise.

    I thought that 1.5.71 was showing more missiles firing, but after running the old version 1.5.51 on my PC, I am not convinced that you can evaluate what is happening just using the visual display. What I did notice was that my Havoc BH in the old game version is easily outperformed by a similarly equipped Havoc BH on 1.5.71 version. TL120 took about 4 minutes longer, and much of that time was spent in the boss fight (i.e., it took a lot more Heatseeker attacks to bring down Kara in the old PC version of the game). If I have time this weekend, I will try to collect some data in Training Grounds, but it feels like the buffed 1.5.71 version of Havoc dishes out a lot more damage than the old version.

    My Havoc BH is enjoying the buffs to Heatseekers, which is now launching 9 missiles instead of the old 6. I just completed TL120, and I found it hard to round up a mob size large enough that the Heatseekers cannot one-shot. I need to dial up Vitality and maybe the build would benefit from higher AR (currently 1250), but Havoc is feeling more powerful than ever.

    Note: I am testing with a 6 piece Havoc set with 2135 CLs and Level 77 Celestial Igniter's pistol set, helmet, and gloves. Also equipped with 99% Heatseekers damage boost on BoM and with Assassin's Belt with Fire damage on trinkets and belt. Probably will use some of my 3 stash pages of jewelry boxes to tweak the stats a bit before pushing to higher trials.

    FYI: I also cannot complete the Quartermaster quest, and I still cannot make any in-game purchases. Maybe they are hoping that the purchase bug will be fixed when this version goes live, but they will lose their main source of revenue if the new version goes live and no one can buy event packs or season passes. So I am guessing this is a high priority now that alpha2 is in beta test.

    TheExorcist I'm refering to the one from Block: before you only get half as Power boost while Shield Block is up, now you get the whole amount...

    Wat does more power boost means??
    Is it: refer to Power increase as a result of more block or Power increase bc we put power as one of gears status?

    Turgeon I never figured out the Shield Wield build properly, so not too sure...

    The Armour & Health boost isn't much to be honest, since it's to the base values... but I suppose any increase helps

    The addition of Whirlwind to the 2x proc also helps, I failed to see the logic of having Charge & Leap as proc for Shield Wield... doubt anyone uses those.

    Damage boosts from 4x & 6x will also help, and I reckon it's even more incentive to have Block on everything, rather than less - higher chance of Critical Block, plus more Power boost.

    And then there's the defensive boost from Blackguard... so overall, there are quite a number of boosts, but I'm purely going "on paper"... due to my lack of experience with the build.

    The 6 piece havoc bonus for bh is great. I applaud the developers for at least trying to balance some of these sets.

    Correction: the 6 piece havoc set is only adding 6 not 9 heatseekers. So the change for the last update isn't showing. I went back to the TG and recorded it then counted the missiles and still only 6 extra.

    I think that well be able to reach 150 quite eazyly with all the new addition for SW. 1000% shield slam instead of 600%. Plus the defender 4 set bonus at 400% instead of 200%. Plus some tweak on DT. Extra life armor. Less block stat to put on. A lot of improvment well see next week when everyone gonna have the new version

    Nhat do you think the changes on SW can help add few more trial levels on the build? I know you're DW but on the warrior perspective, will those changes good enough?
