thejabrixone for this version w/ double Misery
It’s my first polished SR set build. SR set is… a perfect cookie cutter. Painfully banal, auto-fix to all GD problems. Everything beyond SR set will always be missing something. There will always be some holes to fix. Not with SR set. You don’t know how to make builds in GD? SR set. Now you do.
Build is pretty much indestructible under a reasonable debuff density. SR set provides Ulo and Empyrion blessings to any build. 2 Mad Queen Claws make sure that your Belgothian Sheers hit like you’re on Ghoul, always, and themselves got a healing proc each. Bat is stronger than on all reasonable vitality builds I know. And then there’s Ghoul just in case but it feels redundant. Extras were selected to get warlord-tier armor which more than makes up for not-too-stellar phys res. Res could be better, true, but res could always be better, and here all key ones are well over 30% (aether, too, GT is freaking out).
This setup was not made with offense in mind because I don’t think this is the function of SR set. But even as is it qualifies for 2-2.5 crucible farming runs. No kiting, no thinking, no dying.
What’s more, 5 active skills (including 2 self-buffs) so with a good mouse it can be played with no keyboard. The advantages of having one hand free don’t have to be explained to any gamer and won’t be digressed upon in this guide.
Archmage Aleksader. Courtesy of the murder of Anatomy of Murder this patch, the guy has celestial-tier resilience. But all it takes is patience. His meteors are harmless before SR 75 (unless heavily debuffed like by Anasteria or immediately followed by an unlucky crit).
Grava and Slathazzar are always a pain for melee. But I got Slath at SR78 or 79 during the climb when the op vid was made and facetanked him without any problems. I got Grava at SR 80 and besides his null - no problems.
IS DOUBLE MISERY BETTER?
Offensively. IMO it gets very close but isn’t better than Misery. There is too much damage in the masteries to be bought with those few dozen extra points from Misery’s +1 to all.
But defensively Mad Queen Claws are way better.
Thanks for reading and comments and suggestions/crtiticisms always welcome.
