Older players might remember the Boogermancer build, probably the oldest meme build I have ever seen. For those who don’t know what a Boogermancer is, it’s basically a build that spams a lot of items with the ‘of blight’ suffix which grants the ‘Poison bolt skill’. With good proccers like CoF, pox and Night’s chill, you can have an endless stream of boogers all the time. I haven’t played during the time the original build was posted but I found it around September 2017 while digging through older build Compendiums. The build was so fun to play especially if you go full boogers. Full booger is very hard to make work in cruci though. All your items have to be greens with specific affixes which aside from affordability, will cause you to have lacking OA and DA as well as damage. I therefore decided to take a main damaging skill in ABB and just go for partial boogers. This version is what my successful attempt at making a Crucible Booger build looks like. Now onto the build:
I didn’t intend for this build to be a crucible farmer, however this can be made into one with more reliability and speed at the expense of boogers. As for the link above, build clears in around 12 mins give or take 30s WITH HORRIBLE LAG. People with better pc’s should do better, around 10:30-11 mins.
- A lot of good non booger procs
- ~40% phys res
- double heals.
- Faction Weapons. Epic rings
- Seriously boogers are enough.
- You basically look like a drunkard drinking mana pots almost everytime even with ulzuin buff.
- Squishy. Needs a lot of attention when piloting on cruci.
- Don’t look at the negatives. Look at the boogers!
Gameplay: You just play like a regular caster, casting CoF and Pox to hordes, getting RR, multiple eyes up. SS into ABB for the Tainted Eruption and ABB poison (all Cold/FB is converted to acid/poison courtesy of the helmet). Always keep BoD and Pneuma up but only heal when needed, especially in cruci. Minimize CoF and pox spam to only the necessary ones. Build is one of the most energy hungry builds I’ve played since cruci changes. If things go badly, do what any Dot Caster would do, KITE.
Skills: I basically wanted to make ABB my poison dealer skill cause I knew boogers weren’t enough for cruci. DEE nets you more damage but I wanted Lethal Assault in cause OA is very important for a DoT caster. Maxed NB tree for stats and 1pt Nightfall is very useful for proccing Tainted eruption.
Items: Double Coven Biletouch for boogers. Also better than even the best Slithtongues cause tongues can only have one affix, which are all unable to compete with the crit and OA the Biletouch gives, also Biletouch boogers are better. Vileblade set for head and chest for the ABB support. Dark One Grasp for Pox mod (thanks sir spanksalot!). Radaggan Mantle cause I didn’t wanna have another green. You could use Zantarin Shoulders for more boogers. Mark of the Forbidden, as well as Ring of Eternal Rot provide great bonuses both offensively and defensively. Pants and Boots can be non-green ones and will probably make you tankier but I wanted boogers.
Devotion: Standard poison stuff. Went Ghoul cause the proc is a very good lifesaver. Bind Acid Spray to CoF and Scorpion to ABB. I messed up the bindings in my char.
Closing: Big thanks to mothballs for the original boogermancer build. I know he isn’t active since like forever but still. Also to sir spanksalot for some good advice for this build. Thanks for reading!
