[] Skywalker - high DPS DW lightning Eye of Reckoning Shieldbreaker, SR 65+


The reason behind this build is to create a DW lightning Eye of Reckoning build which I have not seen anywhere yet. Because of bonuses to OA, DA, lightning RR, total speed and more I have chosen Demolitionist as a second class. As weapons I use two Emypyrion’s Mercy scepters. Build uses no monster infrequent item. It has high DPS of almost 300k. It kills things fast and defenses are OK.

I also have other spinner builds here, here, here , here and here . I also have other lightning melee builds here, here, here and here.

This build does SR 65-66 relatively easily. No boss is a problem. Even Grava goes down pretty fast. You have 9 passive auras so be careful around arcane heroes. Getting nullifed is not pleasant at all. I don’t push my characters higher but it can go higher if you are a skilled player. I don’t play Crucible so I don’t have a time number for it.

Not a Templar this time? :rofl:

Very nice arthouse build!


Not this time but don’t worry more Templars are coming :slight_smile:

I have several more unusual but strong spinners prepared too.

Compendium could always use some more builds for the less popular classes like Templar. :slightly_smiling_face:

They will come but I will also have to start doing other things than gaming :slight_smile: I have kind of monopolized Templars. I hope there are no anti trust laws :smiley:

Hah, if anything I’m having a kick watching you single handedly make Templar appear better and more popular than it really is.
