[1.1.3.0 - 1.1.9.2] [S&B Hybrid] Bottlemage - IT'S ALIVE! [5:10 Crucible] [SR100] [All Celestials]

probably yes. at least, it’s not so memish how it used to be. no way a top-tier but just a working build.

it’s a possible option but now I don’t want to sacrifice sth like Overguard or Fighting Spirit. :stuck_out_tongue: I also didn’t take Gladiator’s Distinction as skill points … where are you?

Crucible and SR 1.1.7.0.

GT is the same but due to recent buffs the build is considerably faster and more satisfying to play.

I have a build very similar to this one.
Yours was really cool to play, mine was a little weird already, it seems that I can’t easily kill the mobs / bosses. I’ll take yours as a base to remodel mine.

Thanks for the update, is the savefile as of 1.1.9.0?

Edit: It is updated.

I created a very simmilar build. https://www.grimtools.com/calc/r2B835DZ
I got to say Battlemage is turning out to be one of my favorite builds out there. I dont know why it is not considered more popular. Tanky with great offense as well.

EDIT: Where did you get that green ring? I would like to use one like that but the best I could find was mythical Cursebearer…

battlemage doesn’t have any -% Rr in both masteries, so it makes it a mediocre class.

the ring drops from Gargabol, though can be replaced by menhirian/any other good phys ring.

I understand this but it still does good damage with blade arc. I clear game contest and SR easily. And for me it doesnt die thanks to life steal and good defense stats…

Compare it with warlord, deathknight or witchblade

I’d say that it’s the Devastation that does job here :stuck_out_tongue: BA is for proccing AM and applying flat RR.

Converted to physical Devastation (which ignores armor) does like 80% damage of this build. Blade arc 1 hand weapon is just a filler for you to do while Devas kills everything (and proc staffs)

I really do love this build. It is very fun, but it still looks like raining poo.

it like it too, currently it’s one of my favourites among all builds.

I never played a battlemage, but I’m tempted to due to the obvious tankiness.
Have u tried out reaping arc? It could save some skillpoints to spend for war cry and u don’t have to deal with armor like blade arc.

no, I didn’t.
Deathstalker is too valuable here due to RR. WC isn’t needed here as we have flat RR from BA and DR from Empyrion’s proc.
