Salve!
Here is my PB-Trickster. I’ve made a new Topic, the old one was from game version 1.0.3.1. Build is completly overhauled und can relaxed farm Crucible Gladiator 151-170 and SR75 in under 6 minutes.

Concept is Phantasmal Blades spam with full Demonslayer set. Play offensive to eliminate dangers before they come for you. Stay close to hard enemies for shotgun effect.

Use Coven’s Bane augments for weapon and off-hand. You have no use for flat damage, but more energy regen is always welcome on a pb build. Prismatic Diamond in helmet will be better both for survivability and damage.

Can’t comment on the build, items are a bit unrealistic. I would definitely use Mark of Consumption medal tho.

Don’t you have like 240% WD at point blank range (336% with a Groble Death Effigy)? Sure, that’s not exactly crazy high – but still, for a caster like this its not terrible either, right?

That just does not scale well at all on transmuted Phantasmal Blades, it has been tested many times. You can test it yourself, just check PB tooltip with 5 flat damage augments and then check it with 5 non-flat damage augments (but with similiar +to %Vitality).

Huh. Interesting, the dps increase from flat boni is indeed fairly negligible…
Does this mean that they are only useful on auto-attack replacer/WPS builds? And if so, what exactly is the difference between the two? Is it the base damage of the weapons? Because the total %WD between them and PB appears to be pretty similar to me on paper :thinking:

Did you account for nerfed frenetic throw in your calcs? WD is tiny for spam PB now. I’ve been maining a PB demonslayer trickster for over a year until I respecced her yesterday and i agree with lee’s suggestions.

Yes, I did take into account the extra 5% WD they cut in the last patch; but even then, 30%WD x8 is still 240 (or 42x8 = 336 in case you use Groble Death Effigy)…

Yet, after a first round of testing (with Effigy!), I also agreed with @mad_lee that going for flat dmg is hardly worth it (the dmg increase of 5 flat vit turned out to be about equal to ~6% vit on my spec). I was just wondering how that comes to be :confused:

Damage bonus to vitality is the same. I have no serious energy issues and Ravager’s Harvest has a bonus to Bleeding Damage, flat Vitality Damage and 250 HP.

Right, Prismatic Diamond is generally better. I had chosen Sanctified Bone because of the damage bonus, Grava’Thul is no problem for this build.

Thank you for your feedback, guys.

A belt augment would be useful. Not sure which one is best.

I think since your cast speed is near cap without hungering void or diamond proc, bonewraith pauldrons may give you higher dps (conversion). Worth trying if you haven’t.

Thx for your input.
I’ve choosen Bloodfuries for a lot of vitality/bleeding +damage (~235% +damage both). Cast-speed comes on top. With Prismatic Rage, Battle Cry, Bloodfury and Hungering Void cast-speed is maxed. Bonewraith Pauldorns could be an alternative for more cold to vitality conversion but need 915 physique. Furthermore, they have no stat boost. Overall not good enough.

Well over max :stuck_out_tongue:. But uptime on all of them isn’t perfect so bloodfury is still nice to have, agreed.

I used to run bloodfury on my old PB trickster too and results were good, but I did also have more invested in bleed side with Rend devotion in the build. Anyway, all fun things to play around with.

why are we using 2 purified salt on both offhand and weapons when we can replace one of them with haunted steel for 8 more life stealth and some bonus vitality damage?

I use purified salt for racial damage/DA/aether res. Basicly components in MH/OH are free. Purified salt fits good for me. More ADCTH isn’t needed on this build. If you want to go for more vit-damage -> replace it.
