Normal tanky route, however I find Targo to better than Tree of Life since our regen is shit anyway. Or you can drop it and take Fiend for more clear power. Remember to bind it to Ravenous Earth so it’s up all the time.
I find pure physical Bone Harvest to be quite fun to use, great at clearing trash and shit. Other places to dump your points to are Siphon Souls and Ravenous Earth.
Note that Fighting Form is 12/12 in-game with relic bonus.
Warborn set, Beronath and Gladiator belt are mandatory, obviously.
For rings Black Matriarch is BiS. I find Bladetwister cooldown to be too long ti be reliable so you better find some OP green ring. Myth Open Hand of Mercy is also a good choice.
For boots a green pair is the best, Myth Runeguard is also fine.
You may use Avenger of Cairn if you want to be more tanky but I think we’re better off with Essence of Beronath since this build desprately needs that AS.
Shit I totally forgot seal of might has its own conversion, will try that later
I think the only thing that WB does worse than DK is a bit of clear power, but I think everyone (including me) was tired of WB anyway :eek:. Basically just take JOV’s build and drop Gladiator’s Distinction in.
Was going to post this but saw this. Good you posted this
We had the same idea besides the ring slot (I don’t have that MI) and component slot (SoM helps you convert Spectral Binding’s damage)
And our devotion routes are different as well (I am guessing you wanted yours to do be able to do 170?)
I think with that conversion DK might catch up, and it’s also more interesting than WB:). Add to this flat from soul harvest and I see no reason Wb is better. Was also pretty sure i’d do soul siphon but harvest max is nice too
I updated my stuff and it definitely feels better. I overlooked the conversion since this is the first time in my life it’s actually useful.
Yeah DK sure is interesing, you can heal with SS or maybe wear a Dread Knight’s Legplates that everybody ditched in favor of Barbarossi.
Take a nap dude, you’ve been posting new build insanely fast lately :rolleyes:
I think main problem is there are many enemies that resist vitality heavily so extra RR from Shaman and Occultist are more welcomed. Gear sets are also exclusively made for them and melee vitality is poorly developed.
I know you are a big fan of WB but I am frankly tired of it:)
And yes numbers don’t lie, for some reason I forgot the build is DW and uses Beronath sword (probably due to sleep deprivation:rolleyes:- @Chthon, now i finally understand what you said too) so that is indeed a lot of flat dmg from occult, more than DK unless we could convert all aether, maybe, somehow. I’d still go DK for style points combined with actual combat efficacy:p
AFAIK Markovian always hits with both hands, while Zolhan depends on how you’re attacking when it’s activated (can be either hand or DW).
For WPS to work well with 2H generally you need your default attack to be something to multiply your weapon damage up, (which Cadence isn’t ).
