This is the first build I played since the patch went live cause I was very excited with the new Oathkeeper green amulet. Pretty generic RE build that gets 4 Guardian summons but this nets the most acid>vit conversion on guardians so this at least a bit more unique than Blightlord.

FAQ - even if no one asked questions yet
What exactly is that build? - Well it’s built around Vitality Guardians of Empyrion and Ravenous Earth. Some items support both skills in a single slot so it’s pretty efficient building around them. Also, GoE and RE are the strongest vitality skills for their respective masteries.
Doesn’t Blightlord build exactly like this? Yes, but Blightlord is Vit/Fire and the fire part is often a waste in that build. This build addresses that weakness by using items that actually convert the acid to vit in both main skills. There’s some tradeoffs too, like Blightlord having the RR advantage, meaning I can’t really say if this is better or worse than blightlord. One thing for sure tho, if you’re levelling, you can play this earlier since some relevant items are available at lower levels.
Why use the nerfed Biting Blades, it’s shit. - It’s not that bad. Meanwhile Acid purge is ugly and I’m not even sure if that’s a better option.
Wouldn’t the mafia kill you for using so many greens? - Lucky me, it’s the golden age of greens right now. Don’t even need to use the exact affixes, that’s 4 greens meaning 4 items that can have flexible stats depending on what you need/want. Just make sure you’re using those greens cause you want the skill points and the mods. The affixes are less important.
What’s Soul Harvest doing there? And Foul Eruption? Wtf? - Foul Eruption is very potent against mob clusters. You can trigger a chain reaction wherein one guy dies with RE, which activates eruption, which then kills another guy and activates another reaction and so on. Yes, it’s useless against bosses but remember there are more mob waves than boss waves. Soul Harvest because idk where to put my remaining points.
Scales of Ulcama is all the rage now! Adapt to the meta you noob! - Vit builds are the last ones that need scales. Wendigo is way better for the nodes.

Cruci Performance and Video
Cruci 5:11 run
Average run is around 5:25 or 5:30. My best run is currently 5:11 but there’s huge personal potential for sub 5 runs considering the above run finished 160 faster than my 4:53 spite run (coming in the next build post). Better pilots will surely get sub 5 ez.
Uhhh, Thanks @Zantai and Crate I guess for a patch that reignited my desires to play, cause I really quit the game for I think 2 months already. Also to the private chat group @mad_lee, @nery, @banana_peel, @Valinov and the less active ones @Dmt @ya1 @thejabrixone which kept me interested in GD during the time I wasn’t playing.
