[1.1.9.0] Chaos ravenous apostate mage, Mogdrogen killer , SR 75+

Introduction

Hello, ever since 1.1.8.1 landed I wanted to try the newly reworked soul catcher and fiend’s resolve together, and I was surprised by the result. The build deals insane damage especially when you stack RE on top of each others and it is also very tanky ( almost impossible to kill ). Another reason why i wanted to play this build is because i never played an Apostate before :slight_smile: .

Pros
The build deals decent damage ( highest damage 300k ).
insanely tanky comparable to a vit conjurer.
It is very satisfying to play.
Can facetank garbagol and aleksander’s meteor.
Cons
The build sometimes feels squishy outside of Seal of inquisitor to certain bosses.
Some people might not like the playstyle of seal of inquisitor.

Mogdrogen kill

Conclusion

Ravenous earth is a pretty strong skill due to its shotgun mechanic which makes it a unique skill. Thank you so much I hope you will enjoy it. :). Special thanks to @tqfan he has his version of Chaos RE. See you next time.

No completion bonus on the relic?

Here is my sketch for Chaos RE apostate I was trying to make but sort of gave up farming medal and shoulder, never got any decent suffixes :stuck_out_tongue: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/0V00LaMV less dmg than yours but somewhat tankier/more sustain

I’m lazy when it comes to completion bonus on relics i just craft one and go with it btw your version is really nice more suited to HC.

But your GT has not completion bonus, didn’t you upload your char to grim tools to generate link?

No i usually upload my character differently btw completion bonus does not really matter in this build since it is tanky and deal decent damage. :slight_smile:

Build Update

Changed helmet component to titan plating instead of prismatic diamond.
Changed a bit in skill points distribution.
overall the build is tankier and deals the same amount of damage.

Update

Added mogdrogen kill

Tried to take the first two nodes in torch for +5% OA and chaos res instead of two nodes in solemn watcher?

The main reason why i did not take first two torch nodes because i would lose cold res

Change a black ash to the rover augment instead.

I tried to use combustion before but i ended up with a scuffed aether and chaos res. I will try your idea for sure since combustion is way better than the memey blue ring that i have :grinning:
