Malakor was a man of simple taste. “Simplicity and homogeneity” was the slogan of his house and more than everything Malakor hated mages. “Those dirty pesky weasels, always coming up with their petty little tricks, can’t they just take blows like a real man, without those witch spells that make them invulnerable”. Malakor also liked when certain things took certain amount of time to happen. You couldn’t convince him that with certain artifacts you can make things happen faster, just a thought of that made his face (that for some reason could never grow a beard or any kind of hair) purple like his two favourite maces. He also never married and some naysayers made jokes behind his back mocking his rainbow attire and his colourful mastery of melee combat.
Decided to rework this “used-to-be-cookie-cutter” into something decent after all the Inquisitor nerfs, nerfs to Malakor weapons and some Soldier nerfs. Obviously build took a huge hit. And on top of that, I think Cadence’s transmuter works in a weird ways (i.e. just on “cadence hit” not on other 100% weapon damage hits). Nevertheless, I could somewhat replicate the tankiness and general easiness with Bonemonger set. But damage dipped, build is not 7-7:30 Crucible build, so lower end of top-tier.
(if you come up short on Pierce res, cover it with one of the craft bonuses)
Build can farm Shards 64-65 very comfortable with almost zero risk of dying. I think 75-76 is possible, but might not be as consistent, haven’t tried myself (didn’t have the waypoint, lol).
Green free and efficient. Enough said. Weapons could use a buff though.
Drop a seal, say your Word of Pain (usually it’s “I hate all casters”) and hold mouse 1.
With Word of Renewal
With Fighting Spirit and Deadly Aim up
Flat damage standing in Seal with all the procs up
Very slow 7:13 3 blessings/1 banner run (should be 6:30 on a good PC, really slow, Tactician could use a buff)
Unbearably long 11 seconds Mad Queen fight (build is literally unplayble)
Some witnesses who knew Malakor more closely claimed that he had a simple three letter tatoo on his inner thigh that said “CDR”. Nobody knew what it meant or was brave enough to ask Malakor. He died burying the secret with him.
