[] PB-Trickster - 8 Blades for 1 Halleluja (Crucible Galdiator ready)

Overhauled and ajusted for

Salve guys!
Here is my PB-Trickster. Build is completly overhauled und can farm Crucible Gladiator 151-170 in under 7 minutes.

Concept is Phantasmal Blades spam with full Demonslayer set. Play offensive to eliminate dangers before a situation comes too dangerous. Stay close to hard enemies for shotgun effect. Killing with vitality damage is a bit harder but we have good resisantce reduction (145rr). It could be higher with eiher Haunt relic, Voidheart ring and/or Symbol of Solael (35rr) at cost of surviveability/quality of life (casting solael’s flame/haunt).
With 147% crit damage eight blades strikes a PATH OF DESTRUCTION in the ranks of the opponents!

DPS vs. defensive is alway a difficult trade off.
2789 DA
23% dodge/reflect
86% fire res (36 overcap)
80% cold res (63 overcap)
80% light res (38 overcap)
80% poison res (8 overcap)
84% pierce res (60 overcap)
85% bleeding res (39 overcap)
80% vitality res (4 overcap)
86% aether res (11 overcap)
63% stun res
86% chaos res (2 overcap)
7% physical res is a nightmare but Ghoul + Demonslayer’s Guard proc in at 45% health with 51% physical resistance over 6 seconds!
huge life gain (adcth + Wendigo Totem + Twin Fangs + Devouring Swarm)

Grimtools with actual gear, devotion and skillsetup.

Hungering Void, Pneumatic Burst, War Cry and Wendigo Totem

Avatar of Mogdrogen: facetank, overcap lightning res 80+, rearrange components/auguments/prefix/suffix to push DA/HP/RES (shred all resistances except lighning/cold/physical/pierce)
Lokarr: facetank, overcap lightning/fire res by 40 with potions

Until level 75 use primalstrike then change to this build with non-mythical equip.

-Movement could be better (applies to all casters with no melee weapon for blitz/shadowstrike)
-Mana consumption can be high
-Defensive could be stronger (as always…)

-Clear speed
-Awesome DPS
-Versatile to fight from distance
-Strong adcth allows to facetank a lot
-Fun, simply shoot 'em up

can someone tell me how to insert pictures?

In attachment.

Nice build, but there are several things:

  • Stormcaller’s pact would be better then Primal bound cause of crit damage.
  • Take Wendigo totem, its extra heal.
  • Drop Breath of Belgothian, you’re not dual wielding.
  • Circle of slaughter 4/12 enough.
  • Haunted steel a bit useless for this build due to small weapon damage. Same for weapon augments.
  • Replace component in head and pants with Leathery and Scaled hides for more stun resist and armor absorb.
  • Tortoise isn’t worth to get.

Two buttons right of instert linc is insert picture. You will first need to upload the pic to a site like imgur and use the link from there(open pic in new tab after upload).

Then just insert the link here

i’ve inserted this line:

nothing happens :frowning:

Use bro

sure … exchanged the brackets for visibility

You’re inserting link to page, not to pic. Use this https://image.ibb.co/extHk6/screen.png

thank you for input
-stormcaller’s pact vs. primal pond: primal bond is the better solution for me. 15% damage absorb + less damage from beasts (kubacabra…)
-wendigo totem: i give it a try
-breath of belgotian: you’re right
-circle of slaughter: tricksters skillable survivability is difficult. for me 8 points for 30% fumble is min.
-haunted steel: which component/auguments did you recommend? i like bloodthirster
-components head/pants: i have 95% armor absorb; stun resist is at 60%. i’m searching for of kings moosilauke-shoulders than stun res is capped
-turtle shell could be stronger. from my experience it is a good complement for this build. in practice my health is steady full except i catch a big hit. this is were the turtle shell comes into play…

holyshit ur vid is laggy, you can actually play like this? or its just the recording issue. looks like u got graphics turn up pretty high too

it’s the recording. thank you for the tip, i’ll make a new one with ajusted video settings. which settings for xplit do you recommend?

i dont remember adjusting any settings after dl’ing it, i have trial version. for crucible, i generally put all game graphics on low. but if ur game isn’t lagging and its just the recording then i dunno. maybe fps limitations on the record?

Updated build. Changes:
-Dropped Solael’s Decimation: Big improvement in live gain through lowering life leech resistance by 20%! Also damage is improved through -15% vitality resistance. 18% Fumble+impaired aim/-7% damage from undead strengthens the defence. little flaw: haunt has to be casted, oa-loss
-Changed off-hand component to purified salt: Damage bonus to aetherials and aether corruptions also overcapped aether resistance by 3%
-Added a crucible gladiator run (waves 140-150) … this time without lags :wink:

I’d say pretty impressive performance in that last video given that your green items are far from optimal. Any reason to choose those gloves?
