Hello, I wanted to add some cold build for my collection and it’s going to be Spellbreaker with Chillwhisper set. I made two separate setups with some another gameplay, one is faster and very consistent both in Crucible and SR but more Softcore suited (sometimes single death may happen in realms), second one use CDR defense mechanics I found to be good - it’s slower but basically unkillable, can delve up to sr100 without much troubles and any real threat from any boss and it should be good for hardcore or people who do not like to die.
1. More DPS/faster farming oriented setup
Crucible runs are 5:50-6:20, most around 6min. 75-76 is not a problem but death may happen if you pull all the bosses at once, although it’s still possible to kill them all. I’ve recorded additional 95sr run to show there is nothing to fear in lower sr and additional crucible 6min run with Yugol relic instead of Iskandra Balance if you like to spin2win style. Yugol was around 10 sec slower average.
Devotion route I found to be tankiest and still providing good damage, I didn’t want to make this build glasscannon. I’ve tested route without Wendigo and it was survivality and damage loss, our movement rune procs it good enough and we have high vitality -> cold conversion.
My pants choice may be arguable but this proc is really nice and we do not really need Arcane Harmony pants for disruption protection, at least Grava’thul or any other distrupt monsters did not bother me.
2. Very tanky CDR spec
Crucible runs on it are too slow to call it crucible build (around 8min) so I made additional changes which I will mention below. Because this setup is very skill points hungry it’s not possible to be faster without these changes. Build has no problems to delve into very high sr and can farm 75-76 without care about anything. Our defense mechanic is mirror+blade barrier cycle with a lot of cdr resets from eternity and hourglass. With pharma it can facetank Ravager for 90% time, without it’s around 30 seconds slower because some additional sidesteps may be necessary. Callagadra can be killed with kiting, couldn’t facetank her.
If you want to farm crucible with this setup without changing whole devotions it’s still possible just with fast gear and skill points swap:
Crucible runs were under 7min. Still I suggest to follow first setup if you want to jump between 75sr/crucible, this second setup is really mostly for comfortable shattered realm experience or some challange pushing runs/celestials.
- DPS setup:
~5:30 150-170 run
6min run with Yugol relic for some spin2win style
95sr showcase with a lot of kiting, our survivality is very good
- CDR tank setup:
SR 100, 2 unlucky deaths, easy facetanking, not very hard fight with Kaisan
Ravager 3:40 almost pure facetank with pharma, without it’s go up to a little bit over 4min because we can’t fullfill some defense cycle break with aether cluster
6:40 crucible run with few changes I mentioned above
