Hello, just another retaliation build for my collection, lightning warder this time. I made it based about Rata a lot because mage type enemies can slow build like that in Crucible a lot. I did not go full offense too, wanted it to be viable in sr and for celestials too. I focused more on Crucible but it’s possible to make it viable in sr100+++ with stacking armor, da and going with Dryad + Scales + Absolution but that was not my target with that build so only sr100 this time, maybe later I will add another variation.
18.104.22.168 Update: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNYogpJV
Changed some skillpoints because of buffs to Storm Touched, for more tankiness and deep sr stay with 22.214.171.124 version because more points into Overguard.
I use Citadel relic + Callagadra helmet because it gave me best results - with shotgun Vire Cascade + chance for %all retal damage we can burst down worst enemies like Alexander or any mages, it increased clearing speed a lot. Dawnshield helmet can be used instead of Callagadra but it’s a little bit worse choice with Honor.
Medal can be changed for Markovian’s Stratagem (in theory may be few seconds faster because additional rata) but this rare one is faster vs superbosses, we can help fix resistances with some prefixes and it has %armor + 12% heal on Overguard. Mythical Serenir’s Commendation is another viable choice.
Instead of 1 ring of Sethris some Creeping Ring with multiresistances mod + OA/DA is absolutely viable.
All performance videos were played with ~2.7k da as in GT link, do not be afraid of survivality. The more chance enemy has to hit us the faster he will die. With 5k Armor, absorbtion, overcaped resistances, block and 20k health character shouldn’t die.
126.96.36.199 Crucible 5:50
5:10 (11?) run
Did few runs with GI, had some 5:2x, 5:3x, there is 5:10 or 5:11?
Easy 170ex naked
Sr 100 - this build is not designed for it really, 1-3 chunks are annyoing but I recorded it just to show our survivality with 2.7k da is more than enough in some normal content. With pharma used it could go easier probably.
Sr 80 full room agro, not even kiting. 75-76 is a joke for us.
Callagadra 1:48 with pharma because 2.7k da is not so safe vs her, especially we have no absolution. She is dangerous after reaching 50%.
Crate facetanked with some kiting away from his one-shotting boxes, pharma used. Medal switched for Serenir’s Commendation and auguments in jewelery for 3x Arcanum dust to overcap elemental resistances.
