There will be blood.*
*When devs realize that best Apostate build doesn’t use Apostate set.
This build was inspired by @Dmt’s tests of Vitality Rune of Haggarad Apostate. Basically asked her for save folder and after a whole day of different tests and molding made what is probably the best Apostate build yet.

*Craft for Slow Resist. Try to farm an off-hand with Physical resist and high CDR. You can choose to invest more into Spirit
Blood-dripping meat and bones questions
Why no Siphon Souls? Just two points needed for 8/12 SS and 7/12 Blood Boil.
Build has pretty heavy rotation due to main skills having low cooldown but it’s still pretty comfortable to play. Adding another skill will make it a bit too piano
Will it work without those boots, pants and Cursebearer ring? Because they can’t be target farmed.
Yes, just try to get similiar amount of physical resist, stats and key resist overcaps.
Devotion map is a classical one pre Scales meta Vitality powerhouse that I have used in my Conjurer build.. All items are pretty much best-in-slot and build-enabling with an exception of the Boots, Pants, blue Ring and the Belt. Almost everything is target farmable in this build. Check for farming and leveling guides on this form. This is an endgame build.
In Crucible everything is facetankable. But build does require some skills to pilot. Be sure to maintain a steady rotation of RoH, RE and Inquisitor Seal. Don’t forget to always have someone tethered to have constant leech. Place Inquisitor seal under mobs and stand on its edge so mobs get affected by its RR and your char is protected. Use Mark of Torment for Nemeses waves (not always needed but just to be sure).
In Shattered Realm SR 75-76 is a sweet spot. Caution has to be taken though, it’s still Apostate.
Magical with Dark One proc up (100% uptime in battle) and Dying God proc up (80% uptime).
It might sound strange but Apostate could use some love from devs.
