Made to crush the deeply frozen skulls.
Meet Aizarincu, the Assassin.
It’s mainly a caster build based on Rune of Hagarrad and Rune of Kalastor heavily converted to cold. It’s an evolution of my previous Gin Yursis build using nearly the same gear and devotions, but different mechanics to deal damage.
Approved to farm Gladiator/170 with ease (9 minutes average time).
Approved to easily kill Ravager if you pilot this build correctly (17 minutes last time).
Nice Build! I wanted to do the same build with two Chillflame Evokers, but I’m still in the leveling process. However, it is good to know that the build turns out well
This is my take on. Since my character is only in the mid 60s, I was not yet able to optimise it. Since I do not aim for Crucible or farming for good MIs, my build usually tend to be a bit ineffective.
Especially Rimetongue Pendant! +% Pierce and Cold damage, additional RR proc, and +1 to Inquisitor and Nightblade will make this amulet very BiS for every Pierce or Cold infiltrator.
UPD: Or even pierce blademaster.
Nice one. Rune stronk lol. Btw, I find it weird for you to have Haunted steel and Coldstone in a build that doesn’t focus on weapon damage. Os there any particular reason for that? I think Chillspike seals are better especially since you don’t have much OA before lethal.
Coldstone gives +100% cold damage, while Seal of the Night gives only 50%. I don’t want to take the chillspikes because shooting 'em breaks our kiting. It seems more dangerous for me to stop and shoot the spikes.
Haunted steel provides some ADCtH against trash enemies (especially when applied through ABB to all enemies in radius), so I decided to leave it. If ADCtH was useless, I’d take one more Coldstone to boost Rune’s damage even more.
OA is totally not a problem because of Rune of Hagarrad DA shred, effective real OA is near 3200 without Lethal Assault.
The key idea is that you can make devotions self-supporting. Viper requires 1 pt of Chaos and provides 2 pt of Chaos, so you can remove not-needed Chaos node from Crossroads when Viper is completed.
Sometimes you need to take temporary sources of needed points. For example, take Crossroads Primordial, Crossroads Order, Sailor’s Guide, Wolverine, Lion, then take Bard’s Harp and you can safely remove Crossroads Primordial and Lion now, since Bard’s Harp gives 2 Primordial and 2 Order points and can support itself.
