Still bashing away at this concept. I am not an expert theory crafter, but I do enjoy playing around with alternatives to the different class builds out there. The RNG gave me the fire items for the gavel and helmet from my lvl 100 farmer, so I just went with those with an existing dervish. I am currently at level 91 in ultimate and am crushing all I encounter (barring the embarrassing beating I got from the priest in steps of torment, but that was just stupidity on my part that won’t happen again - too Cocky with a fire resistant enemy).
The “Living Shadows” to me seem to be an asset to the build as I can have 3 of them up almost permanently when linked to PB. As I said, I am no expert builder, but my theory is that the belt “Cinderplate Girdle” converts the Shadows piercing damage to fire?
Shoot me down in flames if that is incorrect, but they are definitely the FIRST pets that spawn right at the targeted enemies of PB, even before the Guardians, Blades and Kitty have even thought about attacking them and even before I have used my “Pet Attack” key. Visually they appear to be hitting with fire damage, either way they are fast, hard hitting, aggressive and are my elite Ninja fast attack squad.
The devotion using Seekers may be better later with fire boosts, I dunno yet, but it is really fun to see 3 “Living Shadows” charge into the battle and get reinforced by the Immortal Army.
I really like @Contragor suggested use of the Justice set and have equipped it as I already had BOTH versions of that in my stash. I will stick with it and equip the lvl 94 version when I reach that level.
(I knew that there was gonna be some sort of use for that set somewhere )
Lets see what enfolds …
