I love spinning EoR-type builds, but who wants to be confined to OathKeeper? This infiltrator uses the Yugol relic with 100% cold conversion and 90+% Acid conversion, with dual Pierce RR. The result was enormously fun to build and play.
I am using several easy-to-farm greens, making the build extremely flexible with regards to managing Resists, CC res, and damage (depending on what drops). I only use greens with one rare affix (no good triple rares have dropped for me) but I imagine GDStash users will do even better.
You can also go full Legendary if farming greens isn’t your thing, though damage will suffer a bit without the acid conversion on chest. So I would at least get one of those, they drop all over the place in Cronley’s area. Legendary alternatives for the other slots are really good.
- Base Damage is 160K+ DPS with Yugol. SS Burst damage is ~150-350K. Ulzad’s Decree and Deadly aim are significant buffs with ~50% uptime
- 2x RR Skills, one passive and one easy to apply (Word of Pain)
- Moving while dealing AoE Damage is a great way to stay alive
- Tons of healing via Yugols, Living Shadow, Scales
- ~42% Phys Resist and >2k Armor and >15K health, and overcapped resists!
- Inquisitor Seal is big enough to spin around, the recent update makes them last a LONG time
Playstyle is Simple and fun: Spin for damage and sustain. Shadow Strike for burst damage. WoP when you need additional RR on bosses. (I have tied Ulzaad’s decree to Ground Stomp because it’s reliable and ready when I want it. You could use your movement rune too.)
Gear alternatives: try to stack attack speed and flat damage to maximize Yugol spinning.
Helm: if you don’t have Ravager’s helm, the Bounty Hunter’s Hat is a great alternative. +1 skills to both classes and some other good stats, plus it looks cool.
Chest: Definitely want a Murderer’s Breastplate for the Acid conversion, there is nothing else that converts Acid to Pierce. Korvoran’s chest would be a decent legendary option.
Shoulders: Murderer’s Epaulets here also work and would convert some Scales Vitality - very useful. I prefer the huge stats of Fabius Pauldron.
Pants: Anything you want here, though I try to get +Death Sentence or +Death’s Chill for more RR. Mageguard Legguards is also great here.
Gloves: Anything with Attack Speed and damage
Feet: Use whatever you want to get the stats you need. Im using Stonewrought Groundbreakers for the Stun Resist and Physical Resist.
Belt: Spellbreaker Waistguard or Treacherous Pack pretty much mandatory for the conversion.
Medal: I like the flexibility of green stats - Galeslice Mark adds to SS damage and is easy to get in Act 1. Mark of Dark Dreams would work great too and might be better, but I I like stacking the flat damage and attack speed.
Amulet: Will of the Blade is BiS but anything with damage and +skills is fine.
Rings: I’m using Bladetwister for damage and RR Proc, and Belgothian for Damage + Proc. But anything with Attack Speed and damage is good.
Weapons: 2x Noctirn mandatory.
Devotion map is pretty basic for Pierce + Bleed. Feel free to suggest alternatives.
SR Performance: no boss on SR80 is very tough so long as you pull them one at a time and dodge what you need to dodge. Pulling mutiples can get tricky (and the coming update should be interesting)
Crucible: haven’t tried it yet.
NOTE: After typing this up I noticed a similar build on this forum:
The gear is mostly the same (kind of mandatory for DW Nightblade converting Cold and Acid to Pierce). But his build may be better - he puts more focus on maximizing SS and Autoattacks with WPS skills. Plus I’m a newbie so any long-time player’s build is probably better. That being said I prefer the Spin2win playstyle
