i am playing similar build with diff devotions, skill tree and items… so i like your idea, we were talking with jov about this build last night
things you may tweak or consider,
this is sabo not infiltrator; you basically have ZERO pierce dmg to convert cold, no pts in dual blades not using sword, no rune of haggard no seal, no aura of conviction… so you may wanna change rings to elemental balance rings since they add more flat cold damage and proc is also gives more aeo clear etc.
id change gloves to iceskorn they look more promising imo,
sentinel set was my first goal to complete whole set after AoM, but tbh helm not worth to use or it might dont know,
… ill swap helm with +1 demo nblade sparkhoodor w/e blue helm or something diff… i dont think cold dmg dealers need -%15 cold RR anymore from helm.
i have tried ABB a lot and SADLYpls GGG buff this shit its not worth putting more than 1pt, its there for lethal assault buff for me. dmg is meh, fburn is meh everything is meh for abb imo. or lets say, you will benefit more from investing other skills.
due to low OA of char you need flashbang at least - 200 DA range imo…
didnt like that medal idea, korvaak medal is godsent for this char you lack oa + da and medal gives you that and might save you 2pts from shadow strike… consider that as an option imo.
1 pt in temper instead of ulzuins wrath is more valuable imo
you dont have any slow and trap resist and freeze resist is low for me to play comforably. you may wanna increase phys res aswell… id suggest thinking sailors guide here and 1 component swap on ring for freeze rescouldnt remember name
well i tested torch devotion, is it good ? hell yeah it is… esp %5oa and + crit dmg is nice but sadly blizzard gives similar dmg output, pathing is easier, and more valuable stats for build imo.
i am addicted to ghoul for melee builds, proc is just lets you tank all nemesis and hard content before proc runs out : you melt bosses… i am sure you already know it but i would try to fit ghoul into build.
you def need more oa + da to play smoothly imo.
conclusion, since we have similar concept with small difference
my final thoughts on sabo, actually demo is: demo is weakest class after expansion to me
no da - no hp - no res - no armor absorb demo offers simply nothing other than unreliable blast shieldwhich is meh without cdr
dmg is awesome, aeo clear is awesome , playstyle is always satisfying to me since i am nblade&arcanist fangay… but its so hard that melee sabo can compete other dw melee builds these days but who cares i am loving it
in the end, cold sabo should beat fire sabo ez pz on dmg, but due to OP justice set gives insane hp armor etc, fire sabo tankier, cold sabo more like dps junkie.
I tested a variant with korba chest for converting static strike partways to cold, and ravager helm to leverage the high amount of + skills the build desires, as well as elemental balance rings due to the massive amount of flat damage you get from them with full conversion. Eventually it was sitting around 130k tooltip dps but was ultimately underwhelming due to the lack of armor and phys res, basically just a squishier jajaja fire sabo.
Actually item filter set to purple is the best way to do it imo. It’s a little risky but when everything around you dies you can toggle filters to check for MIs.
I prefer this as this way I don’t have nonsensical crap cluttering the screen and getting in the way of targeting
Must attack Fabius!!!..But first let me pick up this sweet looking Murder’s Cowl (Priorities :rolleyes:)
GJ on the build Tz, does this mean your obsession with Tome of Arcane Wastes has ended?
i tinkered around with cold sabo for awhile before deciding to go back to fire, was able to stack pretty good damage but felt very squishy. eventually settled with korba trickster for cold dw, for the loss of blastshield and explosivestrike AOE, i ended up with much higher HP,OA/DA,crit dmg, and boss kill speed.
somethings to consider:
-1x chillflame is enough for nearly full conversion on FS, for the other weapon ugdenbog chillstrife is much better even with a crappy roll.
-silver sent helm/haggarad glove are kind of meh, very low pierce dmg to convert, rather have icysckorn talons, and possibly ravager helm. alternatively and more defensive option with 2 pc justice is ok too since flat fire is converted to cold.
-in the same vein, if u are using silver sent shoulders to convert acid, you’ll want to max lethal assault to lvl22, this you can do with kupa pants+icyskorn
-with full conversion, elemental balacne rings give u alot more dmg than alkamos, altho i hate the proc (it hurts my eyes
-not sure maxing ABB is really worth, feels like underwhelming skill to me, and skillpoints are pretty tight.
Dual Chillflame is for matching Sun n Moon theme. (Sun from Meteor and Moon from Whirlpool)
Demolitionist has several Flat Fire Damages for conversion.
Also for making Cold Meteor Shower.
If we aiming for only FS conversion, yup you’re right, 1 is enough.
Silver sent helm was testing for full Sentinel sets and also aiming Cold RR bonus.
Justice, ya I think it’s better than Sentinel, it has more armor/health.
I should try it.
Silver sent shoulders to convert acid, nice idea !
Now, I already change my rings to Elemental balance rings and iceskorn talons gloves. Thanks to Stoya, Chthon, n you that reminds me
ABB, well I just make it 1 point wonder now. Just aiming the LA
