Today’s favourite number is:
*Deathmarked pieces or Inquisitor masteries needed to assemble the Best Melee Build
Old man was examining his dusty fur chestguard: it was covered with countless weapon and fang marks as well as some old blood stains origin of which he couldn’t even remember. Kids who usually laughed at his weird furs and his old hat made from a skull of an ancient beast were playing outside of his rickety small hut. They were each holding two sticks and apparently having a heated argument trying to decide in a shouting match which warrior is the greatest: Malakor or Olexra who is rumoured to be back from the dead. Those names meant nothing to an old man for he could barely remember his own. Dog, they called him, for his weird hat and his old rugged fur coat and a distinctive poor man’s stench. “Dog”, he mumbled to himself finishing his rice bowl. His memory was blurry but he used to have dream-like flashbacks when he was dozing off after a meal that he once had a great following and all of his students were either murdered or recruited by the growing clan of Deathmarked assassins.He couldn’t tell if it was a real memory. He looked at his own old and rusty axes gather dust in the corner - he only used them for chopping some wood nowadays to sell it on a market on Sunday. Something stirred in him. Suddenly, kid’s voices outside ceased and he heard a light knock on his door. Outside he found a big wooden box, one that was used by old Imperial guard to carry precious ceremonial weapons. Big “O.” was engraved on it. Suddenly his head started to clear like a sky after a midday shower and he felt his strength slowly starting to come back to him. “Korba” he said. “My name is Korba.”
This build is a result of joined efforts of me and another Russian builder John Smith.
*in-game pierce resist is capped, you can cap it with a different augment setup if your gear rolls are different
We appreciate it. True King of melee (for real this time).
And really inexpensive to assemble, plus a lot of craftable pieces for that juicy %armor bonus.
Might dodge the incoming melee nerfs
Because it’s not Deathmarked.
Nex and Ortus swords coupled with Elemental Harmony ring set seem to be all the buzz right now. Helmet choice is obvious, chest and shoulders buff Savagery and give us relevant resists, and we don’t need Pierce to Cold conversion from Chilling Grip Haggarad gloves, because with swords set bonus hard capping Lethal Assault yields more flat then pierce to cold conversion. Relic could be Nemesis for even more damage but a glassier spec too. Craft everything at Angrim for armor bonuses.
Just murder everything. Shadow Strike even with minimal investment is still a nuke, especially if you choose to bind Blizzard to it, so press it frequently.
With Lethal Assault and Savagery charges
Korba stood still while blood slowly dripped from his new swords. Before him were three slaughtered warriors wearing the same set of armor and weapons. He thought he recognized his old student in one of them or maybe it was just his memory playing tricks on him. Those were the last of the Deathmarked clan. He thought his swords were talking to him, in whispers, asking for more bloodshed, saying something about Witch Gods urging him to go East. But all Korba felt was weariness. He could use a rice bowl by now.
