[] Full Korba Trickster, no tricks and no greens, just pure melee!

Are you deliberately overcapping some resistances?

Yes, mate. Basically you need solid overcaps to play in Crucible. The reason is there are lot of monsters with RR debuffs. The most dangerous is Anasteria. She reduce your resistances by half. In 169 her RR is stacking with the fat Fleshworked bosses. So your resistances can hit even 0. So aether is the most important overcap in Crucible. Others are important too, only 2 you can get away without overcaps are pierce and bleeding.

Why Revenant in every second build this days? Is this a new trend?

Best Flat RR-Devotion ingame maybe? :wink:

It’s in my way. For cold DW builds you usually wants Revenant anyway. Flat RR is bonus. Also important are attack speed, AdctH and undead racial bonus.

I enjoy roleplaying. All my toons are Dark Souls NPCs or bosses and only Nito can spawn skellies. :sob:

is this build good for high SR? :slight_smile:

Haven’t tested it. 65 should be consistent and 75 will be probably possible with favorable combos but DW melee outside of SR set or super tanky setups isn’t really suited for deepest shards and Trickster is not by default strongest defensive mastery.

For SR I will suggest defensive devotion route. Also you should take Wendigo totem. In Shattered realm is always important to have passive heals, that will sustain even if you’re running away from Nemesis.

This is my 2nd character and I haven’t even hit 100 yet. I also don’t know much about the game still so maybe you can give me the specifics on the devotions I should take. Also what should I replace for Wendigo, should I take Wendigo’s passive Blood Pact, and should I max them both out? Thanks for w.e. info you can supply :smile:.

Ah, you are not 100 level yet. I have this guide made, that can help you. [] Beginners/budget DW cold melee Trickster

Wendigo main skill is what I meant. It’s nice healing power. Blood pact is good if you can utilize the flat vitality damage. For example if you don’t have the Spellbreaker’s belt, you can use Gargoyle with +1 to Nightblade that converts vitality to cold.

so just to be clear this guide you linked me is the one I should use for the Devotions?

Depends, the devotion setup in my budget guide is for undergeared characters mostly. I will use setup with Dying God in campaign or Crucible for this build.

By writing in this thread, made me realize I want to play more Korba Trickster, but this time with Ring of Steel at 26/16 :yum:

Thanks for this fun & very strong build!

Really nice build, I tried it recently! :slight_smile: Small question about the devotion setup: could it be better to go for Leviathan which has a lot of cold damage and a cold-related proc (+ taking Toad for extra ADctH), instead of going for Dying God and Ultos? --> something like this but without elemental storm and with viper for the % reduced target elemental resist if Ultos is not taken: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNY5dGXN

I used Leviathan in few other builds but here’s supbar to DG/Ultos. Also Ultos is must since you have lightning to cold conversion and big weapon damage.

What I tried and will update the build is RoS at 26/16 points used as nuke skill. But devotions are classic!

Ok thanks for your answer!

Oh nice I’m waiting for the update! :slight_smile:

This build needs to undergo serious changes, including fresh new devotion route and greens to function. Actually build well it will be monster one, I’ve tried it actually with Zantarin shoulders, Elena’s necklace as amulet, green belt and Kuba’s pants. It’s pretty different than my original build sadly. But Korba can still function well.

I can help with that :slight_smile:

What’s your idea?

Also this devotion route of @thejabrixone is interesting, although I would like to feature Yugol.


Korba is an old build i really wanted to see shine for i worked on it a bit this week and results were very good.

It’s an aggressive setup for max damage, especially devo wise, but that can be mitigated.

Here is the update and video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRFY6cxVNFM - 4:44 - It could be faster but I chose to play it safe here and there since it’s pretty risky. Maybe a ‘‘golden run’’ later :slight_smile: But it’s a good time that i’m satisfied with regardless
