This is the third iteration of my Warlock build based on the Clairvoyant Set. The big change is a moving from PRM to AAR.
I. The Build: Click me
II. Game play and Bosses
The General Approach
III. Pro’s & Con’s
-Good burst and sustain damage, 3.4k+ resting OA
-Fun if you like to gamble, Time-Dilation on Doom Bolt is amazingly fun. https://clips.twitch.tv/PoisedSteamyBasenjiPeoplesChamp oh. my. endorphins.
-Good single target and decent aoe damage now that AAR pierces.
-Surprisingly good survivability with 2k+ armor rating at 97% armor absorption, maxed resists, 3.1k+ resting DA.
-Is gear dependent.
Curse of Frailty (CoF)
Aether Corruption (component)
Albrecht’s Aether Ray (AAR) - primary source of damage.
Doom Bolt - sprinkle in some doom with your ray.
Blood of Dreeg (BoD) - Primarily used for Poison/Acid/Physical Resist and OA, without it your Poison/Acid resist won’t be capped, so be sure to keep it active.
Nullification - Used for anything and everything that you want to nullify, I’d suggest using it for mob affix’s (ie Reflect) or removing a snare.
Mirror of Ereoctes - Used for OH $%^# moments.
Bloody Pox - OA debuff.
Maiven’s Sphere of Protection.
Iskandra’s Elemental Exchange (IEE).
-Dying God. Bound to AAR
-Part of Spear of the Heavens.
-Aeon’s Hourglass. Bound to Doom Bolt.
-Tree of Life. Bound to IEE, Important do not bind it to Maiven’s Sphere, if you run out of energy MS deactivates, IEE doesn’t.
-Obelisk of Menhir.
Hat/Chest/Weapon/Shoulders- Mythical Clairvoyant’s Set
Legs - Mythical Wraithborne Legwraps
Belt - Mythical Phantom-Thread Girdle
Gloves - Mythical Riftwarped Grasp
Boots - Crafted Stoneplate Greaves -or- Mythical Golemborn Greaves
Offhand - Codex of Lies
Amulet - Peerless Eye of Beronath -or- Mythical Essence of the Grim Dawn
Medal - Mark of Divinity -or- Mythical Mark of Anathema
Ring - Mythical Open Hand of Mercy
Ring - Mythical Closed Fist of Vengeance
Relic - Eternity
VII. The Approach
-Keep BoD active at ALL times.
-Initiate trash fights with CoF and hit them with AAR or Doom Bolt
-Initiate hero/boss fights with CoF, Aether Corruption and Bloody Pox. Begin with AAR then pepper in Doom Bolts for large bursts in your damage.
-Reserve your Mirror for when you need it, OR, gamble it to get more DPS on a target
-Nullification is maxed out so use it whenever you want. We have the Eternity Relic so cool downs should be quick.
VIII. Leveling Guide
Use Bloody Pox w/ Fevered Rage. 1 point in the base ability, max out the second node and 1 point in the last node and build around Vitality until minimum level 68 (which is when you can equip non-mythical Clairvoyant’s). Whatever gear you pick up along the way is basically what you’ll build your skills around.
An important item that is really easy to acquire that will greatly benefit bloody pox is the Boneblade which is available as early as the Mountain Deeps before reaching Homestead and after talking to Ulgrim in Deadman’s Gulch. This thing will keep your pox strong, I used it up until lvl 68. Easy to farm.
I’m still in the testing phase for nemesis bosses and will upload footage when I beat them.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Any criticism? I’m always trying to make my builds better, so have at it!
