“create an acid grenado build” - well, time for another of my “exotic” builds
The idea was to make acid grenado work, no matter what. Since there’s no good way of converting the damage on grenado itself to acid while getting the required amount of skill points to the grenado line I went with RATattack to grenado instead, added global conversion from oathkeeper and murmur’s kiss belt, put on the sentinel of the three set for acid retal dmg and filled out the remaining gear slots with fitting items leading to the usage of acid retal canister bomb and aegis of menhir on top. The result is quite the meme character (big surpise), but it can still do most content decently.
“Is this build viable on 188.8.131.52 (public testing)?” - I have played the char both on 184.108.40.206 (public testing) aswell as on 220.127.116.11, the build has seen no changes in 18.104.22.168 (public testing) (so far).
^ingame stats with all permant auras up, no temporary buffs (no ascension), highest crit 371k (I assume Grenado).

Crucible Gladiator 1-170
I did only two 150-170 runs so far. The first run was 9 min 27 sec, second run 8 min 15 sec, game crashed during third run so I just stopped playing crucible on this char for now

Feedback & Final Words
While it should be no surpise that this char ended up being quite the meme build and asking for buffs on meme builds is a little ridiculous, I’ll still give some feedback and say that I think the %rata on grenado’s Shattering Blast should be buffed. Highest crit on this char is very low (371k) especially considering proper grenado builds can hit >1million crit easily. Especially the overcap nodes on Shattering Blast feel pretty bad to invest into and I haven’t seen any other retaliation grenado build (fire/lightning/physical) which would become OP with a buff like this.
As always any kind of feedback is apprechiated!
