[1.1.8.0] Olexra of Kalastor - freezing and exploading Mage Hunter, easy SR 65+

INTRODUCTION

I decided to do another Olexra build this time with Rune of Kalastor. Other skills I use with this character are Burning Rift (nice teleport with burn damage - deals a lot of damage) and Flames of Ignaffar for lifesteal. Gameplaly is freeze them with OFF, teleport into the middle, put an Inqusitor’s Seal on the ground and Rune of Kalastor under them and burn them with Ignaffar. Everything will die in seconds. All these OFF builds are extreme fun to play. Thanks to freezing and fast killing you don’t take much damage. The Mage Hunter class combo has naturally good defenses (Maiven, Censure, Seal, Mirror, Nullification and Word of Renewal). I also use Eternity relic to shorten cooldowns on skills (it helps a lot).

I have other builds using OFF here.

Here is a list comparing all my Olexra builds from best to worst. All are at least SR 65-66 capable.
  1. Olexrian Luminari – great build, OFF + DW ranged elemental Beronath‘s Fury, offensively a little slower, defensively quite tanky (best of my OFF builds)

  2. Olexrian Judge – great build, OFF + physical Obliteration and Judgment, offensively a little better than Olexrian Luminari, defensively weaker than than Olexrian Luminari

  3. Olexra of Kalastor – great build, OFF + fire RoK and FoI, offensively a lot better than Olexrian Judge, defensively a little weaker than Olexrian Judge

  4. Spinning Freezer – great build, OFF + fire EoR, offensively a little better than Olexra of Kalastor, defensively a little weaker than Olexra of Kalastor

  5. Olexra of Vire – great build, OFF + fire Vire and Judgment, offensively a little better than Spinning Freezer (best of my OFF builds), defensively a little weaker than Spinning Freezer

  6. Olexra of the Sky – great build, OFF + cold TSS and Devastation, offensively a little weaker than Olexra of Vire, defensively similar to Spinning Freezer

  7. Albrecht von Frozenstein – good build, OFF + fire AAR, offensively a little weaker than Olexra of the Sky, defensively a little weaker than Olexra of the Sky (but better than Olexra of Vire)

  8. Albrecht the Freezer – good build, OFF + fire AAR, offensively and defensively similar to Albrecht von Frozenstein

  9. Olexra of Menhir – OK build, OFF + fire Aegis and Vire, offensively a little weaker than Olexrian Luminari (weakest of my OFF builds), defensively a little behind Albrecht the Freezer

with OK CDR + Eternity relic you can use defensive skills very often (freezing often, Phoenix up almost 100 % of the time, Bat + Ghoul also benefits from it, more often healing with Word of Renewal)

SR, CRUCIBLE

I play SR with camera pointed away from enemies and I try my builds only in SR 65-66 and SR 80. I play around 10 SR runs per character.

This build does SR 65-66 relatively easily. With mutator increasing enemy CC resistances fighting Grava and Reaper is not pleasant because you can’t freeze them. It can even do SR 80 with good mutators (if you can freeze enemies) but it is tougher. It is squishy in SR 80. If you can’t freeze Grava and Reaper it would be impossible in SR 80.

I don’t play Crucible so I don’t have a time number for it.
