[1.1.7.1] Malkadarr's EXECUTIONER - DW Reaper [5.24 c+] / Dummy 0.10 / MadQueen 0.05

Salve!
A new patch and a new chance for builds. Malkadarr’s Dreadblade got a really nice buff and forms the heartpiece of this build. This guy kills really fast - i had problems taking a screenshot of the char screen. Most of the time my target is dead before Beronath’s Fury was fully charged.

Friendship ended with Ugdenbog Chillstrife. Now Malkadarr’s Dreadblade is my best friend.

Seriously, cool build! I never thought I’d see Silver Sentinel get some real use.

Have you taken out Crate straight up with no potions or other buffs than what your build shows here ?Been looking for a build that can do that without too much piano play. That celestial seems to give me heartburtn no matter what type of character I build and play.

This build shows an easy way to clear main game content or making fast runs crucible gladiator 151-170. Lokarr can also be killed easily (added video). In order to kill crate comfortable and without potions you have to find another build. Last but not least, the Silver Sentinel Set is not known for its resilience (armor, HP, etc.) which is needed. You can simply farm Avatar of Mogdrogen and Ravager with this DW Reaper (facetanking and disciplined cycling skills).

A dual-swords-wielder accompanied by a black panther ? And no one has made a Drizzt Do’Urden reference yet ?

Fixed.

I’ve stolen his swords during a random encounter in Baldurs Gate II :wink:

I’m kind of new to the game. Are these greens hard to farm? is there a guide somewhere?
Thanks in advance :smile:

exactly those rolls are hard to get, but not the basic ones. You can only get the swords in crucible and Shattered realm because they drop from the “champion” of deths vigil and you have to side with them as necromancer.

I think @Nery has beginner friendly reaper guide

All those double rare items you’re never going to get legit, that’s for sure. They’re GDstashed items. Maybe the author could post the same build but using realistic (single rare) greens?

I did a “cheap” and realistic stating point https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNY1qpeN

Full silver sentinel set is probably worth it for the cold rr proc though: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/RZR1Pw4V

Upgrades would be to get good reaper pants in SR / Crucible, Alkamos rings, better swords and amulet and belt. Also craft boots for CC resistances :slight_smile:

This axe is also interesting to use https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/9272 but make sure to alter WPS chanes so you dont get over 100%

@Ulvar1 - so I need to side with Kymon’s, then in ultimate I can farm the swords from Malkadarr, Champion of Death’s Vigil?

yes that is correct but you can not side with kymons if necromancer. If you wanna farm malkadarr swords in ultimate you need to play nightblade solo until you get to homestead in ultimate.

or just farm the swords in Shatter realm and crucibal

you can use ugdenbog chillstrife meanwhile :slight_smile: very good sword too (or rather dagger)

@Ulvar1 - I had no idea, thank you! Do you have the link to the alternative weapons?

Can I farm, Malkadarr with a different character? That way I can level this one up and not worry about the whole necro part.
