14th December 2019: Added DW version with Nex & Ortus swords!
Screenshot with all permanent buff + Word of Renewal, Pneumatic Burst, Lethal Assault, Deadly Aim, Hungering void, and Sitting on Inquisitor Seal.
DPS shown is Shadow Strike
- The coolest looking set in the game!
- Mobility-skill based build, consistent clearer.
- Require hundreds and hundreds of run on the new rogue dungeon
Morgoneth set, modeled as infiltrator. Towering high OA, Skyreaching high Crit damage, synergize well with shadow strike built-in crit damage. For all OA whore out there.
Itemization is quite obvious except rings and maybe medals. The new morgoneth’s ring and anubar ring are used for its good proc. Tested alkamos purple rings also, performance is similar but less consistent due to weaker procs. Mark of shadow queen is used for super OA. Thanks to @mad_lee who suggest seal of the night, reminding me to make omega OA version of this build.
Current max damage of shadow strike (in buffed crucible, no vanguard banner):
Craft for +%physique. Get as max lightning>cold conversion as possible, get maximum CDR on Soulrend.
Armor of the Eternal Set.
Main / Off Hand: Soulrend. [High CDR, staple for CD based weapon nuke]
Amulet: Mythical Night’s Embrace. [MOAR SS crit damage, MOAR OA, MOAR RR]
Belt: Gargoyle Waistguard. [Converting vitality part of SS and nightfall to Cold. Tempest prefix is BiS for MOAR OA. Use whatever you like though.]
Ring 1: Prime Ring of Morgoneth. [Relevant skill bonus, good proc, good stats, love it]
Ring 2: Ring of Anubar. [Good proc, good stats, love it]

Usual cold devo with Dying God
Rumor > to Shadow Strike
Blizzard > to Blade Spirit
Hand of Ultos > to Inquisitor Seal
Hungering Void > to Amarasta’s Blade Burst
Raise the Dead > to Ring of Steel
Ghoulish Hunger > to whatever permanent buff
LMB: Shadow Strike
Keyboard 1: Movement Rune
Keyboard 2: Amarasta’s Blade Burst
Keyboard 3:Ring of Steel
Keyboard 4: Inquisitor Seal
Keyboard 5: Word of Renewal
Keyboard 6: Pneumatic Burst
- Always have Word of renewal and Pneumatic Burst active
- Shadow Strike / movement rune in
- Then always hold LMB while:
- Summon inquisitor seal below you (or not, just to trigger ultos)
- Cast ABB to trigger lethal assault
- Cast ring of steel
Stay in inquisitor seal only if facetanking multiple nemeses or bosses. In other cases, you want to move around sweeping and cleaning with shadow strike.
Build PerformanceCrucible: For 170 Crucible, video with 4 buff + 3 L1 Storm Beacon:
5:15 clear time.
This is current fastest. Usual clear time is 5:30 and super consistent because shadow strike just chase the enemy to the end of the world.
Haven’t checked. Honestly I havent played SR for a long time…
