All right, after few failed attempts and going back and forth between different setups I got it to a level where it can farm Crucible in 9, maybe 9:30 minutes with 4 buffs and no banners pretty safely. It’s not Infiltrator levels of safety of course, because, you know, no seal and no censure and no word of renewal (and even Aura of Conviction beats Oleron’s Rage for such build and it’s not even close). But with just minimal piloting effort you can do it. I mean, if I did, most players can.
Few surprising revelations I had when I was testing different stuff out:
Amatok is absolute hot garbaggio for this build. Yes, after I realised that 4 devotions points were spent on 40% cold damage/4% health and a proc that procs once in blue moon I decided I had enough of that weak shit and removed all points from it
Hungering Void is AMAZING for this build. With around ~3400 OA with Ulzuin’s Pact 40% crit damage and 10% attack speed is just sick. Everything melts. No awkward skill bindings to proc it (unlike Amatok’s Blizzard)
Best amulet is actually Executioner’s Judgment. I have tested it with Night’s Embrace and Mageslayer Protector too. Proc from Executioner’s Judgment is really really good, especially in Crucible. I know it looks worse than Night’s Embrace on paper, but just try it out.
EDIT: Did like 4 runs in that final setup. Runs vary from 9 to 10 minutes, with 10 minutes being the worst possible set of mutators plus Kubacabra spawning on every wave he can spawn. Died only once on the last run of the night, on wave 170 when I had only Moosie and Kuba left and Kuba had like 30% hp, lol (so obviously just own stupidity to blame).
Nice run, I saw you kited just twice and you just facetanked Grava/Kuba/Valdaran on wave 170 with no sweat. Dying God makes this BM hit like a freight train. I was kinda surprised that it hits so hard with cold with since it’s a single RR class combo and without a single green item, gotta be one of the most affordable close to top tier builds (and deathmarked set is also not that great compared to AoM sets).
Actually it’s a very powerful set, and Cadence is unexpected way to make it even better. I found no other builds using Cadence with Deathmarked.
The reason this build is so good is huge weapon damage; my other DW builds have 21-24k weapon damage and I think they are top-tier, but this particular one stacks up to 34k. That’s it
Oh, and Cadence itself supported by Execution hits like a bus. In 6 strikes you deal 856% WD via Cadence, 554% WD via Execution and 300% WD via regular attacks/wps. It’s super powerful
My calculation supposes that 6 hits include 2 Cadence hits, 1 Execution and the rest are default attacks and other wps. Maybe I should call it 7 hits, 2 for cadence and 5 for others including Execution with 20% chance to proc, doesn’t matter much. It’s a draft for understanding only
Avatar of Mogdrogen kill was surprisingly slow compared to Ravager kill, took 9 minutes: I had to sacrifice too much damage for +100% lightning overcap, stun resistance and +8% max lightning resistance.
But still, this kill was very easy and safe.
Deathmarked Godkiller, now certified. Tomorrow I’ll test it on Lokarr.
