I dont know if this is a good starter, but its the first build idea I have posted here on these forums, so please be gentle.
This is a goofy DK build I was testing around => convert as much stuff to physical as possible!
I thought that using some key items to convert elemental/chaos/vitality to physical would make this a killing machine.
The key items for this build are listed below=
-Mythical Beronath, Reforged --> chaos / elemental to Physical
-Mythical Gladiator`s distinction --> vitality to Physical
Main attack skills being Bone Harvest and Reaping Arc. From the devotions I was looking for some RR, and chaos/ele/vitality dmg.
Of course I dont have all components installed etc, Im now merely testing it in Elite before going to ultimate.
Before that, I would like to get some opinions on =
-The general idea, is there too much damage conversion squeezed into one build?
-Item choices near OK?
Im not too confident with changing my setup towards the WB set, as I try to go the vit/ele route instead when it gets converted. Of course, if it happens that the net phys dmg is too low, I might have to rethink.
Cadence is your main attack,put as many as possible points here and bind assasin mark,also deadly momentum is good.I like for devotions crab,the proc is helpful.Some players will suggest Oleron for T3 constellation,I prefer Empirion.
OP link: you got 800% total phys multiplier, my friend. It doesn’t matter how much flat you stack if it doesn’t get multiplied enough times. Should be at the very least 2000%. You need +% physical damage stat on almost every piece of gear.
Besides, check out that Mad_Lee’s build or any other soldier build to see a proper point distribution. Like Field Command is always max no matter what, War Cry is at 12/12, Scars of Battle is until you get 100% armor absorption, etc. Necro: Spectral line is always maxed, both. Reap Spirit is not needed and the mastery bar going so far, Mark of Torment is 6/10 or more, etc.
Scarab sure is handy as an accessible option for stun resist and % armor. Spares us from the need to invest in things with either high point demand or low completion bonus like shieldmaiden or bear. I’m a bit surprised you chose 3 points into obelisk instead of Ishtak. Doesn’t seem to affect DA all that much.
I see your point. That sweet slow resist though. Your old setup with 3 points in Ishtak was an eyeopener for me. I swapped crab and eel for wraith and 1 point in crossroads in order to get both (don’t ask me why not just complete one of the 2 :rolleyes:) but the loss in DA doesn’t seem to worth it, not to mention losing the crab proc and some damage. Oh well, 53% slow res ain’t that bad. Your min-maxing is as bulletproof as ever
I hear you. At least people playing retal or hybrid retal builds will have Messenger’s proc to help with that. Speaking of procs, do you think it’s worth it to squeeze Azrakaa in the devo setup? It’s feasible, but, on paper at least, it seems inferior to the current one. Even so, that proc it has, with such a low cooldown and everything is dishes out, could be worth the trouble.
Another proc i’m curious about is the one from Targo’s pet dodo. Ironically, it’s pretty much what everyone was asking to be improved in the way Light of Empyrion works. Was trying to fit it in a s&b version for Beronath, cause it would seem like a great addition, but the requirements are a pain
