RUNE OF HAGARRAD/MELEE HYBRID SILVER SENTINEL + CHILLHEARTS INFILTRATOR
This concept has a very long history… of plagiarism. First, I made a N&O hybrid in 126.96.36.199 basically ripping John_Smith’s pure melee version . Now, I did the exact same thing with thejabrixone’s recent Bonemonger .
This is one of those builds that were argued not to exist in this thread . It’s a hybrid melee in a caster armor. One of the glassiest builds there is. Exposed and Afflicted mutators are alt+f4, Aethermarked and Tainted are very bad. Best played with Courageous Tincture (didn’t use in the vids for clarity).
It needs to be piloted really well. It can die at any moment, even to trash mobs. It used to make up for it with crazy RoH damage. Now… it’s 75% crazy RoH damage plus assorted nerfs to just about everything infiltratory… It can still kick ass when the stars align but it’s kind of a sad shadow of a glorious past. Maybe my favorite build ever, still. I really wish Crate didn’t try to decimate glass cannon meta, which is currently 99% accomplished.
HOW IT WORKS
Maxed cooldown on the rune, maxed pierce to cold, some melee for sustain and voila. You can imagine that RoH was never nerfed…
For defense we got the Seal… and that’s it. Use your spider sense to disengage when the one-shot is just about to come.
What is notable is thejabrixone’s idea to stray from the generic cold melee devo path (DG, Revenant and Amatok) and go for Elemental Seekers. It affects defense (Revenant is a huge loss for any elemental melee) but gives a crazy offensive boost.
Add that 2% cdr on Silver helmet. Would be so nice to have 3 Seekers.
Buff Deathwhisper pants. 300-500 health would be spot on.
Energy regen on Silver would be nice. It’s a caster set after all. Being blue and only 3pc is no excuse.
Stop nerfing stuff just because someone somewhere achieved a time. Revive true glass cannon meta. Peace.
THX FOR READING. THX TO THEJABRIXONE FOR THE CONCEPT.
