*scraping the bottom of the barrel for some build ideas in my build ideas cellar
Dark One set has been rejuvenated recently with some strong Shaman mastery support. Idea to make Wendigo Totems into something offensive looked like a meme at first. However upon exploring Dark One Conjurer and testing different gear combinations I have managed to concoct a very strong vitality build in which Wendigo Totems are anything but a meme.
One of the most popular builds in the game gets even stronger! More damage, more tankiness, more immortality!

Conjuring some dark q&a
What about Mythical Soulbearer? Orb of the Dark Flame? Blood Orb of Chton? Cursebearer ring?
I have tested all those options and this setup is optimal. I haven’t tested Cursebearer ring since I needed stats from Signet of the Damned and also I wanted to cap Wasting.
Isn’t devotion x better off when bound to skill y?
This one I am not that sure of. The curent setup works pretty well, but if you have any other devotion bindings that you are certain of, please do share
What about Blood Pact? Why not cap that?
%Damage gains are miniscule and flat damage is useless on this build
What about Fevered Rage? Your build looks like it can afford it
It can but tests showed that clear times are more or less the same.
Core of the build is Dark One set. Everything else is pretty much best-in-slot. Numerous gear combinations have been tested to come this setup.
All the main and support damage spells are hard capped. I chose to go for Wendigo devotion because of how well it scales with huge %Vitality damage boost that this build has.
For levelling check dedicated guides in the build compendium section. This is an endgame build and it works the way it was intended once you have Dark One set and all the gear.
In Crucible build doesn’t die. Period. So your goal is to heard as many mobs together as possible to get the maximum out of your Wendigo Totems damage.
In Shattered Realm you can go very deep, Shards 75-76 are not a challenge to this build. However, don’t get too brazen on boss chunks and try to aggro abuse bosses.
