Christ I just did an amazing run. Shield, maxed-out aspect of Zeus. Zeus on special. Boon for the chance to double lightning bolts. Legendary Zeus boon for more splitting lightning. Hermes for +speed on special (epic), and...maybe jolted? I honestly don't remember since at that point it was academic.
I also had other boons, like Artemis cast + the duo boon for the secondary arrow + exit wounds, and poseidon+shoals+boss damage on normal attack (great for slamming regular enemies back into the shield where they belong) but they pretty much didn't fucking matter at all because the lightning shield was illegally powerful. Just, disgusting. Not sure why I bother with anything but Chiron Bow and Zeus Shield. And maybe Lucifer rail. And maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe Eris rail and Excalibur. And maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe Enkidu fists.
The multiple shield throw after dash? Yeah, I've tried it. Sucks, miss me with that. (Nah it's fine it's just not as impressive.) You should try Aspect of Zeus. It is far more truly fucking wild.If you like the shield, please try the Chaos shield. It is WILD, truly fucking wild
The fourth area is less of a joke than the third! Or at least an equivalent level of joke!The third area is even less of a joke!
(The fourth area is somewhat of a joke, meanwhile)

Yeah, before I unlocked Zeus my best shield runs were all where I had an awesome setup on my shield throw - like the hammer for it hitting more people, and hangover or lightning when it hit, etc. And I can definitely see how doing that except a lot more can be really powerful! Heck, even when I did my 4th-aspect run, the shield toss ended up pulling a lot of weight, so multiplying it is Good! (Especially with that hammer for more chaining, or burst when you catch, or more.) Achilles is my fave spear because of the extra mobility. And the gun is just fun.It won't let me quote you for some reason Paul, but yeah I'm gonna try the Zeus shield eventually. But right now, when Titan Blood is kinda scarce, I'm really feeling the Chaos shield. The post-rush throw does a ton of damage if you hit them with all of them up close, it does good crowd control on top of that, the rush itself does on-hit attack effects so a rush/shield throw combo can proc attack AND special status effects...it's just really strong overall. And guarding is a part of the equation too, so it's really safe on top of all of that! There's literally nothing but upsides to this dang thing. It's like...stupid good, just completely broken.
I get that you can keep the Zeus shield out indefinitely with proper movement, which is nice, but I kinda don't see how anything can dethrone Chaos shield. I'm taking a break for a bit because this game consumed my life for like 2 weeks, but once I get back into it and have the Chaos shield maxed out I'll give it a go
Uh...if I don't upgrade the gun and spear first (I like the gun a lot too, and I went to the trouble to get the Yuan Gu so may as well check it out...and the Achilles spear is mad good)
I'm actually in the middle of a Magnet Cutter run right now. It's good, definitely the best normal-fist aspect, and I've had a couple neat builds with it. It doesn't click with me quite as much, though. Is Gilgamesh better? I dunno, but it feels cooler. But I'm not reliably great with either of them, so, shrug! :/Are you me?
Magnet Cutter's good, though. Not a huge fan of Greg fist.
OK so I accidentally made an absurdly good build with this. I had: The magnet cutter's cast-damage boost; Aphrodite cast (already a good match for the magnet cutter, because of the short range and weakness helping melee survivability); duo secondary projectile for 30% duo; Epic hermes auto-cast (60% cast speed); Legendary Hermes for crystals to come back immediately; Weak enemies take extra damage; I feel like there's some other stuff I'm missing but that was basically the power combo. I'd hit them with the magnet cutter, hold the cast button, and 1000+ damage would just kind of happen.I'm actually in the middle of a Magnet Cutter run right now.
