Hi, everybody. Phantasmal Blades + 4 Blade Spirit is a good combination. Shows excellent survivability and damage results. Such a witch hunter can keep super bosses in close combat and easily pass the crucible and live on high SR. All the details on the video below.
Interesting setup. But I agree with Sparks. It’s not a no-green so that green belt is a must. But the relic and the medal… you gotta take into account that build is low on oa. But then, no Hawk, no Panther…
But the times are really good. Maybe we should revisit a few concepts. Like Alex made a Stormreaver with AAR amulet, and I was like WHAT??? And then I tested it and I was like what? (not in capital letters) Conduit is still BiS but there are valid arguments for the other one.
I look bad for builds on the forum, but I also did not see yours, because I rarely visit other builds, because I do not know English well. I’m in discord with @Safarel most of The time. So no relations this build to you not has). About the builds itself. The goal was to make an effective pseudo-pet. Then I decided to add to the effectiveness of knives. The goal was accomplished, the witch hunter turned out to be very effective and strong. If we talk about maximum efficiency, the strongest and fastest build on knives is a dervish at @mad_lee. But my goal was to make a witch hunter with pseudo-pet). I find it difficult to translate my thoughts into English, but for a number of reasons, the given things that stand in this builds are BISS. Some options I tested and based on the results came to this conclusion.
It’s possible on PB and not shocking. Imo sub 5 is possible on Rancor, just nobody was lucky enough that I know of. Times on PB are very skill dependent and RNG. Things have to literally “align.” And when they do only Pyran has more dmg.
This is unfair - it’s not like this is a unique concept. Maybe they haven’t read whatever build guide it is you posted that you’re talking about. ‘Courtesy’ would be letting them know that you had this idea as well, not assuming the worst and that they must have taken it and deliberately omitted credit.
IMO it’s just a nicety which most builders here exercise. And I think alexgoldfish has posted enough builds here to be aware of this.
I didn’t accuse him of doing it intentionally. All I said was, “it would be nice if you could credit me for the original build idea.”
I.e. it’s a request/me giving him the heads up.
Where did I accuse alexgoldfish of intentionally doing this?
EDITED: My criticism was aimed solely at his itemization.
Maybe you should practice what you preach.
@sly-winking-usury: I don’t want to derail this thread, nor do I want forum drama. So I’m going to PM you. Given my harsh criticism of his build I do think it understandable for you to assume that I was accusing alex.
@AlexGoldFish_322: And I’ve already told you what the forum etiquette here is. Everyone - mad_lee, nery, ya1, etc.- does this. But you do you. Either way, I’m done with this thread.
Alright, well - I think everyone should be allowed to use a specific off-hand without checking the forum for it and credit every builder who did so before. I do like the high standard of politeness that veteran build makers established. The same politeness though should stop them from being too harsh to anyone that does not meet those standards.
I don’t see problems going either way. If someone wants to post something I will be happy if that person used my ideas without wanting or expecting something in return.
But build options are limited of course. You have so many builds posted, impossible to invent new stuff constantly. So if you saw/someone told you about similar previous build, you can just mentioned it or give credit. It’s not mandatory or rule, just a common courtesy.
