[1.1.6.2] Olexrian Luminari Mage Hunter, Freezing enemies and gunning them down, SR 65+

INTRODUCTION

Reason behind this build is to use freeze reduction on conduit to OFF (-30 %) and freeze reduction on aura of full Luminari set (-20 %). You can freeze even Nemesis bosses for a short while with this build like with full Mageslayer set. This adds a defensive layer to the build. Because of the Luminari set ranged DW is used for autoatacking with Beronath’s fury from the component. To help with bosses Stormbox is used.

I have other builds using OFF here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Crafting bonuses are slow resistance on the amulet and energy regen on the helm.

Nullification

SR, CRUCIBLE

This build is doing SR 65-66 easily. It is neither slow nor fast but reliable. I don’t push my builds higher but it is possible with this build. I don’t have a time number for crucible because I don’t play it.

I remember seeing wonderfully degenerate interaction with hourglass and OFF. Assuming that’s still in play for the current patch it might be worth experimenting with.

I love builds like this, that use an immobilizing skill like OFF or Nightblades Blade Trap as the centerpiece!

Always inspiring to see people creating these. Thank you for sharing!

Nice one :+1: Did you try using the new pistol phasebreaker instead of arcanum picstol?

I like the +1 to inquisitor skills on Arcanum Sigillis and If I remeber it corectly, this has higher DPS.

But maybe when I am looking at it now the phasebreaker might be better. But I think I didn’t use it because I wanted more plus skills to inquisitor I guess.

100% pass through on projectiles is very strong, and combined with inquisitor wps will help increase multi target killspeed

Yep I only saw that item in game and in game you don’t see that it has pass through. It will be better I guess.

But you will lose some OA from the gun and from +3 to overload.

Never thought to test but does equipping a Phasebreaker apply 100% pass through to Luminari’s Sidearm too? Or do only shots fired from the Phasebreaker side get the effect?

I can’t test it because as I looked at my chars. I don’t have phasebreaker actually.
Edit: I actually have it on another char. But in the mess of effects, I can’t really tell what is correct.

I would be interested to see how something like this works out https://www.grimtools.com/calc/p25lGlxN
boosted damage, attack speed, and a better proc in seekers than levithan. Accounting for spirit bonus you gain almost 400% more fire and lighting damage, and about 180% cold. You also gain an additional crafting bonus on the pants slot, which can be used to boost armor or physique more.

Well it will obviously have better AoE, slightly better single target damage. But less life. So it is for a better pilot therefore not for me :smiley:

What would you think about a Discord Cadence tactician version? https://www.grimtools.com/calc/wV1lgl72

I have never played DW ranged cadance. I don’t know how it behaves in game. It is the only archetype of cadence I haven’t tried. I will have to correct it :slight_smile:
But maybe it could have great single target damage.

On paper, the 100% chance to pass through (every third hit with cadence) and double seal of void seems pretty fun. Perhaps one should have at least one gun with 100% chance to pierce through (I used 2 luminary guns for some weird reason)

Yep that should be changed.

I made this magehunter right after the patch came out… https://www.grimtools.com/calc/1NXX8YWN I didnt bother working on him more, but hes a leech tank to a degree. its interesting with full pass through blessed steel

Great damamge but very squishy (low phys res, life, CC res). But for a great pilot OK I guess.

Something like this … https://www.grimtools.com/calc/YNn0BXOV

That is something I could play :slight_smile:
