Troubles with the Smith of anvil of fury

Post by D1sfigur3d »

Im currently fighting through hell difficulty with my lvl 38 barb and everything was going smooth and fine until i met the Smith in caves level 10 and found out how overpowered this boss is. Anybody defeated him in melee combat? Cant do anything to him even with the rage, inner fire and insanity skills on. He's just to fast, too accurate and keeps me stun locked forever. I know i could use telekinesis to avoid fighting him but id like to know if he's even beatable in melee. My barb has around 600 hp, all res incl phys at 75%, dps around 1200 using the lightsabre with ITD and attack speed at 306.
Thanks for ur inputs!

You can run circles around the area and pluck him off with ranged weapon to weaken him a bit before closing in for the melee kill.

If you can keep a golem on him as a shield, you may be able to do some hit and run combat.

1. you get close to anvil
2. the Smith appears
3. you make 2-3 teleport jumps to reach the opposite side of lava lake
4. the Smith can run after you. when he gets closer, you:
5. teleport back to the island
6. take good bow with ITD
7. bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang
8. PROFIT!!!

for melee combat, i think, you need weapon/gear/amulet rings that have attributes:
1 +(xx)% Chance to Knockback
2 Ignore Target's defense
3 Hit Steals (xx)% Life
4 Reduces Target Physical Resistance
5 increased attack speed
Maybe, you can use some skills like frenzy or inner fire
+mana shield

No way, he’s faster anyway and thus hits first and locks me in my stun. No matter what weapons I equip, fang of Cerberus or the edge of brutallus. Think I will have to try to increase my hit recovery as much as possible and return later, that should help IMHO.
BTW, skipped this Butcher and cleared Hell by now, Diablo wasn’t a big challenge and so were not Gamar and the Bloodlord. Now combating through Torment.
