*The last battle against the nerf crusade
This build was a result of me making a joke in @Safarel’s Discord about finally making a decent build out of the The Arcane Tempest epic jewellery set. Just few hours of testing and polishing later build was done.
Gave this monster a bit of a facelift. Tankier and more damaging than before!
<<<< GRIMTOOLS >>>>*
*Affixes on the shoulders and belt don’t matter much, just use the ones with some DA and relevant resists
**Craft two items for Stun resist and one item for %Physique
Green items, how could you, mad_lee…
Yeah, not my style, but shoulders are easily farmable in Cronley’s Hideout out of all places and belt drops in Port of Valbury as well as in SR and Crucible
Why not use Reap Spirit, you even got bonuses to it?
I have tested it on this build and it’s still bad
Those OA/DA look somewhat low.
That’s not a question! But build is plenty tanky and strong despite low-ish stats
The core of the build are The Arcane Tempest set, Temporal Arcblade, two pieces of Diviner set and Ascended Shoulderplates. You can easily farm those shoulders in Cronley’s Hideout, just get ones that patch your DA/resists. Krieg pieces are bis here and also farmable.
Skill distribution is pretty optimal. I did test few things (including Reap Spirit), but this way build deals most damage while maintaining solid level of defenses. Devotions are on a defensive side and it’s somewhat required here.
For leveling check out multiple leveling guides on this forum.
This is an endgame build and it works as advertised once you equip all the items/skills/devotions as in GT link above at level 100.
Everything is facetankable in Crucible. Do use Mirror/Mark of Torment rotation when you are cornered against multiple Nemeses on waves 160/170.
In Shattered Realm SR 75-76 is a smooth sailing if you rotate Mirror/Mark of Torment (you don’t need to do it precisely before Aeon reset, just switching on one after another one expires is enough against anyone). Everyone is facetankable except maybe the gatekeeper guy from Malmouth.
