Who am I? I have been nerfed more times than the quality of The big bang theory, I was once a fierce lion, now am pitiful kitty. Yes I am the one and only Cold Lol The Nerftaking Deathmarked Blademaster.
My namesake for the build is Khan Krum the fearless Warrior, who beheaded the Emperor of Byzantine and after that order the making of drinking cup from his skill. So after the Byzantine diplomats came
after the war, they were forced to drink from the Skull cup.
Today’s build have new patron though, Hello Kitty!
So what’s nerfed here. It’s hard to say all of them, but:
Flat pierce on head
RR to proc
RR to Night’s embrace
flat from LA
Mod to Execution
Crucible for DW builds
- perma buffs including DM and LA

I have tested quite few version of devotions, items were same. Other than standard, I made some controversial selection. Kuba pants for DM and LA, used stashed affixes Stonehide of Kings. Also Judgment for amulet, is still trash, but Nights’chill and DM bonuses are somewhat useful, Serenity for relic is much needed
Devotions, tested 6 different routes, this one gives best times, but is squishy. It’s similar to route from DM Infiltrator by @mad_lee
Veretragna original route is slower than that. Most stable version is this with DG, Ultos and Amatok. GRIM TOOLS- https://www.grimtools.com/calc/1NXWGRgZ
Crucible with Yugol and Leviathan can do 7 minutes or slightly faster, but have problems with bad mutators. DG version do 7.10-7.20 all the times and is safer. Other versions are not worth it, at least in my test.
I think DM needs to be buff. In current status of the game DW melee is not overpowered and certainly DM taken some hits. I think some of the changes needs to be reversed. Also this amulet needs - RR not unusable flat.
