[1.1.4.2] (DW Melee) The Spirit Seeker - Elemental Cadence Tactician [c+] [sr]

Small foreword: never played a 3-elemental build and a tactician class so decided to mix things up and make this build. Actually, it’s pretty obvious and similar to @mad_lee’s one but I’ve changed items a bit and chosen slightly different devotion route.

GEAR EXPLANATION

  • Armor - Bonemonger is surely the best elemental set and it’s also very flexible, so it is here;
  • Weapons - DW Malakors as the best ele weapon. Boost cadence, AoC and give very useful RR bonus to it;
  • Pants and boots - both have nice procs and help to hardcap Cadence;
  • Rings - cool proc, %OA, %crit, damage etc;

PROS AND CONS OF THE BUILD

PROS

  • Sturdy and tanky build with good OA/DA, crits and armor;
  • Dynamic and colourful gameplay with lots of ele procs whirling around us;
  • Metric ton of racial damage - against aetherials, eldritch, cthonians and undead.

CONS

  • Very modest RR - only -98% + Viper;
  • Cuba suddenly takes a long time to be killed, and becomes a true problem in SR;

BUILD PERFORMANCE

Build is tanky but lacks RR, so isn’t very fast in Crucible. The best run was made under 7 mins, though more average are about 7:30. In SR farms 65-66 levels but probably can go up to 70 (hadn’t tried it, actually).
Among Nemesis the most annoying is Cuba, also Reaper can hit hard. Grava is not a big problem on his own, Kaisan too.

Nice to see this post!

I like DW melee builds and had lucky run. So nice to see house of Malakor standing proud! Later with post my take on Purifier.

Ah, yet another elemental build with these weapons - nice. It reminds me about my 2-elemental battle mage build using the same weapons as your build. :wink:
