with all permanent buff + Word of Renewal, Deadly Aim, and standing on Inquisitor seal.
DPS shown is Primal Strike (Transmuted)
- Mix Damage
- Primal Strike + Rune of Hagarrad
- Quite clunky to play at first, like all rune build
So this time I tried to combine another best skills from both masteries, thus vindicator with its primal strike and rune of hagarrad.
Concept is simple, 4 piece of runebinder + a weapon to strengthen primal strike. In this build, I use Ugdenbog Sparkthrower for flexibility in damage type, as I also want to support my other elemental damage. This may be able to work with Ultos 2H-Axe, although I haven’t tested yet.
TL/DR: This is a rune of hagarrad build with Primal Strike supporting from each rune casting. Again, What could possibly go wrong?
Defense is quite minimal: 21/12 inquisitor seal + 21/12 damage reduction from aura of censure. Minimal Armor and Decent DA. Heal from Word of Renewal, good lifesteal, and circuit breaker from ghoul.
Craft all equipments at arngrim for +%armor or +%physique
The Runebinder set minus the bow.
Main+Off Hand: Ugdenbog Sparkthrower. Build Defining Item, “of scorched runes” suffix is BiS. Use anything you like for prefix, it would be nice if you have elemental one though.
Gloves: Mythical Chilling Grip of Hagarrad. Converting pierce from RoH to Cold
Medal: Luminari Commendation. Converting pierce from RoH to Elemental
Relic: Ignaffar’s Combustion. Perfect fit for this build and provide important stackable elemental RR, get bonus to aura of censure as completion bonus
Pants: Mythical Legwraps of The Tranquil Mind. I really need that OA and Slow res
Belt: Mythical Arcanoweave Cord. Nice plus to vindicator.
Boots: Mythical Stormtitan Treads. Should be BiS for any Primal Strike Build
Rings: 2x Mythical Reign of Ice & Fire. Nice %OA, godly procs, +to Artifact Handling. I haven’t checked elemental balance ring though
May be able to be optimized later

151+ Crucible, Video with 4 buffs:
This is my current fastest run (7:39). Longest is 8 minutes.
As always, kill AoM nemesis first, except Kuba. Kill kuba lastest. Usually he will die due to RoH collateral damage.
Reaper is the most dangerous one. Kill him first and always stay in inquisitor seal. If you encounter 2 reapers, after kill one, kite a bit, then stay at inquisitor seal to kill him.
Also, do not facetank Alek Meteor!
This build is not as tanky as tactician, thus need extra focus. The clear time is worth the loss of tankiness though :p.
A bit lazy at the moment, might expand this thread later.
