A new patch and a new chance for builds :-). I love Shadow-Strike-Auto-Attack-Builds since the early beginning (B27)! My first build here was a SS Witchhunter: [Witch Hunter] 200k+ Poison ticks / 250k+ Crits. As i saw the new Morgoneth’s Set my first hope was to reactivate a SS auto attacker … and it worked really, really fine
Playstyle is very fast due short intervals between every Shadow Strike. Crucible Gladiator (a good pilot will be much faster than my postet time in the video below), Avatar of Mogdrogen and Ravager can be easily farmed. You need to pot (mana) only in rare cases -> completly comfortable, one-dry-hand-playing with a smile in your face … guranteed.
=[ CONCEPT ]===============
Maxed out Shadow Strike every 1.1s with 90% WPS (20% Execution, 20% Whirling Death, 25% Necrotic Edge boosted by Mythicall Dreadchill Mark, 25% Reaping Strike) in the auto-attacking-phase between + Soul Harvest and Lethal Assault buffs. AoE-Damage is really nice. You kill default monster groups without attacking easily.
With all Procs/Passives/Actives
=[ OFFENCE ]===============
- Up to 3.228 OA
- Crit Damage +116% with Shadow Strike
- Killing-all-default-monsters-AoE with Nightfall, Whirling Death, Necrotic Edge (+3 Target’s/70 Degree Attack Arc), Icechill, Night’s Chill
- 119 Cold-RR -> 23 Rumor + 25 Ill Omen CoF + 46 Veil of Shadow + 25 Tip the Scales
=[ DEFENCE ]===============
- 3.004 DA
- 2.796 Armor
- 27% Dodge
- Awesome ADCTH -> 16% Dagger’s + 10% HoS + 5% Scales of Ucama + 4% Ghoul + Tip the Scales + Ghoulish Hunger + Nightfall + Bone Harvest + Reaping Strike + Hungering Energies
- Ghouhlish Hunger
- Really good mobility -> SS every 1.1s + Rylok Wings
=[ GEAR EXPLANATION ]===============
- Head, Hand, Shoulder, Chest: Armor of the Eternal Knight
Support’s both of our damage types, give’s rr, a lot of amor, acid to cold conversion + 0.2s for SS
- Neck: Mythical Night’s Embrace
Flat damage, rr, +1 to all skills in Nightblade and 20% Crit Damage to SS
- Weapons: Loxmere’s Frostblade
Since patch 22.214.171.124 this weapon is competitive! For a SS auto attacker tailor-made. It is also a dagger and can role awesome prefixes like “Assassin’s”. Choose suffix and prefix as you can get ist. In my opinion “of Voracity” suffix is BiS. Optimal prefixes are “Assassin’s” with +3 NJE and “Theurgist’s” with +3 Soul Harvest.
- Medal: Mythical Dreadchill Mark
Flat damage, 8 usefull skillpoints and 2x good skillmodifiers! BiS
- Belt: Gargoyle Waistguard
+1 to all skills in Nightblade, vitality to cold conversion. Hardcap SS with “of Shadows” or Night’s Chill with “of the Winter Storm” suffix. Choose prefix as you need/get it.
- Pants: Reaper Legguards
BiS, thanks to Xervous. Hardcap SS with “of Shadows” of Night’s Chill with “of the Winter Storm” suffix. Choose prefix as you need/get it.
- Relic: Belgothian’s Carnage
-1s to all currently active skill cooldowns = one more SS every 4.5s, +1 to all skills in Nighblade (+1 NJE/Night’s Chill is optimal)
- Rings: I choose Alkamo’s Torment and Alkamo’s Agony. It’s a offensive choise with total speed and a ton of OA. If you have problems capping your resistances or need for DA replace this rings. Alternatives are Mythical Lifegiver Signet, Deathguart Sigil, Mythical Band of Wandering Souls or Dread Sigils og Alkamos
- Boots -> I choose Morgoneth’s Step.
All in all fits good. If you choose different equipment form the above mentioned than use this slot to compensate.
=[ DEVOTION ]===============
Changed my original setup for a more cold oriented one (skipped Rattosh for Ultos).
=[ CRUCIBLE / SHATTERED REALM ]===============
Farming Crucible is very comfortable with this build (3 Buffs / 1 Banner). I played shard 50 for the skill-point-quest with no problem so far.
=[ PLAYSTYLE ]===============
SS in and activate Soul Harvest. Change target’s as soon as you can see that frostburn kills them. Thouger guys get Ill Omen und Lethal Assault on top. If damage comes in -> MoT and Rylok Wings to debuff. Keep Pneumatic Burst up.
Easy to play (“q u a l i t y O F l i f e” by jajaja).
RMB: Bone Harvest
M5: Pneumatic Bust
2: Ill Omen
