Hello people of Cairn. I’m here to show you another fun build, a vitality Doom Bolt spammer. So far I was able to play through all acts of ultimate, the four roguelikes, killed Lokarr and managed to do SR 50-51 on HC.
new set up using Hourglass: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/DV9zRlWZ
old set up using Obelisk of Menhir https://www.grimtools.com/calc/b28jEBDZ
crucible: I kinda lack the motivation to play that mode atm
celestials (except Lokarr): Didn’t try with this meme build and don’t think it will be that nice to do.
Main Campaign Bosses and Dungeons: check twitch Vods for that, if you like to see the runs, e.g. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/446842388
- Viper: OA, affinities
- Hawk: OA, affinity
- Jackal: phys res, total speed, affinity
- Sailor’s Guide: phys res, movement speed, slow res
- Lotus: my favorite out of the new devotions, phys res, HP, energy, improved healing
- Bat: best tier 1 devotion in the game, insane lifesteal, %vit damage and good affinities.
either 2 or 1 (+eel) out of the following three:
- Panther: OA, affinities
- Stag: movement speed, pierce res
- Scarab: bleed res, %armor, stun res
- Eel: DA, pierce res
- Solemn Watcher: the best overall defensive devotion, DA, armor, res
- Will of Rattosh: -RR, must have for any vit build, %vit damage, res
- Dying God: OA, DA, %vit damage, crit damage and %vit damage on proc
- Aeon’s Hourglass: -6s cd proc every 16s, very nice for Ascension, Blood of Dreeg, Resiliance, Doom Bolt, etc.
- Obelisk of Menhir: very good defensive tier 3 for any build, DA, armor, stun & freeze res, armor absorbtion
head: Covenant of the Three (CDR mod for DB)
gloves: Mythical Riftwarped Grasp (CDR and damage mod for DB)
weapon: Mythical Damnation (100% Chaos to Vit conversion mod for DB)
offhand: Mythical Codex of Violent Rifts (CDR and damage mod for DB, CDR and conversion for Judgment)
amulet: Mythical Pestilence of Dreeg (OP for acid / vitality sentinels)
rings: Mythical Signet of the Fallen and Voidheart for RR
chest: Mythical Clairvoyant’s Robe (many other options here)
shoulders: Rah’Zin’s (many other options here)
belt: Mythical Girdle of Stolen Dreams (insane OA)
relic: Eldritch Pact (helps out a lot with missing AoE)
pants: Grava’Thul’s for +3 Celestial presence (the affixes are just to overcap, not mandatory for capping, choose whatever you like more here)
boots: Mythical Footpads of the Grey Magi (craftable, can get nice smith bonus, many other options)
medal: Mythical Mark of Divinity (many ofther options here, actually the first time I’m using this medal on a char, fits nicely here imo)
level using Bloody Pox, Curse of Frailty and Judgment with DB for single target dmg (vitality) or just lvl as fire Oathkeeper (Vire’s Might + Judgment)
rush bat devotion
using the new Totally Normal Bulwark is totally awesome for lvls 50+ when going the vit route
DB = Doom Bolt, RR = resist reduction, OA/DA = offensive/defensive ability, CS = casting speed, CDR = cooldown reduction, HC = hardcore, HP = health points
I’d suggest giving Mythical Damnation the same -0,5s mod for DB as Mythical Clairvoyant Wand and the Bloodsword Repeater already have (or just give it more flat damage). Also could you make Mythical Pestilence of Dreeg’s ability a proc instead of an active? This build really has to press a lot of debuff buttons. Making it work the same way as Blightlord’s proc (you did an awesome job changing that one to a proc) would be nice! Then the build could possibly make the jump from being a meme build to being an actually good build.
Even though performance obviously can’t keep up with the meta builds the build is a lot of fun and DB is more viable than ever. I can recommend this build for anyone who is not an absolute beginner and who has nicely filled stash, the build is a lot of fun!
Have fun bolting down DOOM onto your enemies!
