Update: Build updated for V2 where damage is increased significantly and kiting is no longer necessary
with all permanent buff + Word of Renewal, Deadly Aim, and standing on Inquisitor seal.
DPS shown is chillspikes
- Using not one but two the best skill in the game as nuker
- Fucking insane damage, everything melt like butter
- No TD, need to time MoE right
- No continuous devastation, again need to cast it right
So the RnG god finally smile at me, the filthy GDStasher. He decided to gives me Ascendant Hood with interrogator’s prefix adding +3 to Aura of Censure!!! Thus, I decided to revisit this build again with all of my accumulated experience and what I studied this past 2 months.
Main damage dealer is Cold RoH with 1.5 sec CD. In between CD, supplemental damage done by chillspikes, also 12.5 sec CD Fire/elemental devastation for boss & Nemesis Wave.
For Defense: 21/12 inquisitor seal + 20/12 damage reduction from aura of censure + 14/12 damage absorption Maiven’s sphere of Protection. Heal from Word of Renewal. Really good lifesteal with chillspikes. Decent DA and decent armor. Mirror of Ereoctes for further facetanking.
Craft all equipment at Arngrim for +% armor or +% physique. Get as much CDR as possible from off-hand & Amulet and/or main hand
3 Pieces of Runebinder set: Chest, Amulet (CDR & strengthening RoH), and Shoulder.
Helm: Ascendant Hood. Build defining item, converting 100% devastation’s aether to elemental. Have whatever prefix that has CDR. For suffix, use whatever you like.
Gloves: Mythical Chilling Grip of Hagarrad. converting up to 30% piercing damage to cold. This works for chillspikes and RoH
Medal: Luminari Commendation. converting up to 36% piercing damage to elemental. This works for chillspikes and RoH. Also really nice +2 to inquisitor seal skill line
Relic: Ignaffar’s Combustion. Just a perfect fit for this build, get +1 to aura of censure as completion bonus
Pants: Mythical Legwraps of The Tranquil Mind. We really need that OA. Spirit and Slow res is also nice
Belt: Mythical Arcanowave Cord. Supporting our damage and plus to both masteries
Boots: Stoneplate Greaves. to cover resistances, get any prefix/suffix you like
Rings: 2xMythical Reign of Ice and Fire. nice OA, godly procs, plus to artifact handling
Main-Hand: Mythical Spelldrinker. Just a nice +400% elemental damage. Also give +1 to inquisitor and solving energy issues
Off-Hand: Cataclysm’s Eye. Supporting our damage, + to all skills, and plus % cast speed. Also giving so much Res.
Cold & Fire Offensive setup. Ghoul for a nice circuit breaker and ADCTH

Keyboard 1: Nullification
Keyboard 2: Mirror of Ereoctes
Keyboard 3: Rune of Hagarrad
Keyboard 4: Inquisitor Seal
Keyboard 5: Word of Renewal
Press to activate Word of Renewal. Always have it active and/or save it for heal
Cast inquisitor seal and sit there most of the time.
Mash RoH button while continuously casting chillspikes.
Cast devastation when you have rounded the boss mobs / nemesis. Most trash mobs is fine with RoH and chillspikes.
Cast nullification on yellow spellcaster mobs, shielded enemy, enraged MadQueen, and half/fully charged reaper.
The build doesn’t need to kite at all. It can kill quickly before being killed. Just make sure you are in inquisitor seal when get surrounded. If things get hairy or surrounded by a charged reaper + other nemesis, MoE gives 3 sec invulnerability which is enough.
170 Crucible, video with 4 buff:
Current Fastest run, 7:40. The build can complete 3 set of 151+crucible in a single buff, consistently if you know what you are doing.
The only most dangerous enemy is reaper due to its charge type auto-attack. Cast nullification on him after getting about three hit from him.
Don’t facetank Alek Meteor.
Grava is quite a bitch, but staying in inquisitor seal helps greatly.
Don’t worry about other nemesis.
That is all, I hope you can enjoy the build
