How important are two points in Wendigo totem? You need just 5 points to overcap Storm Touched. I remember I have discovered how dps-y Storm Touched is when I was assembling my Lightning Trickster.
That nerf to Stormreaver was classic Zantai’s move, axe was good as it was with +1 to Inquisitor then out of the blue it gets buffed with more skills to Inquisitor for some weird reason then bam, no skills to Inquisitor.
Very. No SR90 without it. Extra 6% adcth is golden. Any heal is golden. The dmg you eat that far in SR is insane.
That’s right. Nightblade has crazy good wps so anything that improves melee - like attack speed - pays off better. Also, Storm Touched electrocute scales great (like 7-11/s per point). Trickster also has better wps to spread that electrocute (Whirling Death and Belgo Shears).
On this Stormreaver, if I got 10 free skill points, I think the first to max would be Savagery, then Storm Touched. Reason is Electrocute doesn’t leech, and I hate those RNG bonuses like 20% for 500%damage.
I don’t really mind it, honestly. Build is still VERY TOP-TIER. It’s just funny that they added +1 to inquisitor just to take -2 next patch.
you are absolutely correct. it makes little sense for DW melee. i always like a DW melee lightning build. sadly they make inquisitor WPS exclusive for ranged only. seems like to go DW i would have to go the Death Knight route.
many thanks for this build. was looking for a really good lightning build and this by far is one of the most strongest and even exceed warder.
Any class can dw but nightblade is the mastery specializing in it. So lightning is not the best dmg type for dw. Pierce, cold, bleed and acid are best.
Lightning trickster used to be okay a few patches ago but now it might be weak.
It’s not really my build. It’s a very old build and many people posted different versions of it. Anyway, it is THE strongest lightning build (arguably second strongest after Cyclone but Cyclone has been nerfed much harder than LD) and one of the strongest builds in the game in general. Warders can’t hold a candle to vindicators, btw.
was wondering why not take elemental storm instead? revenant 6% adcth would it be redundant to feral hunger? of course, 25% chance to proc… not really sure how crate implemented the proc chance though. if don’t get proc once every 4th attack then, that chance sure is pretty low and need very high atk speed.
and yes i’ve played warder before and this is indeed really a nice build. btw, i’m not sure why i can’t achieve your skill points allocation. i have the exact +6 shaman +1inquisitor.
i’m already level 100 and did all the hidden paths quests.
i have the same completion bonus on eye of the storm. but well noted on the quests and from SR. much thanks! this is a nice build. but i do find the HP dipping real fast when fighting some mobs in lower crossings which has an on ground aoe. looks like poison/acid. but other poison/acid i have no issue. resists are pretty much high though.
btw is it me? i have noticed that kasparov’s experiment don’t award skillpoints anymore in normal/elite and even ultimate.
grubnar? is there a link to grim monsterdb? just died being overconfident in temple of the three. those riftspawn sure crazy? i already have overcapped poison… not really sure what kills me though. armor isn’t that bad at 2.8K with 100% absorption.
