Last week I was actually thinking about writing a complaint about the Crow of Bysmiel because it looked pointless to me on paper and was never used in a build on this forum and hardly even mentioned anywhere.
It is a chaos 2h ranged weapon that supports poison pets. So it is a doombolt shooter + blightfiend build, but a necromancer doesn’t support chaos damage or ranged builds and a cabalist has almost no cunning. I thought as a puzzle game I could make a SR60 build out of it, because the gameplay would be fun, but…
I ended up finishing SR80 on the first attempt and it wasn’t even hard.
This is my best hybrid pet build so far and uses only single rare MIs and more purples than usual.
Up to SR80 you don’t need to do much kiting, since your enemies will often be facing your blightfiends, but the deeper you go the more it will work as a kiting build.
There are actually 2 builds: a chaos doombolt shooter and a chaos bone harvest shooter, both are solid SR80. The bone harvester is a bit tankier and better at group fight, I reached the SR85 bossroom with the bone harvester but then died. I think it could do very well in CR but I don’t have the setup or much knowledge about it.
Chaos Bone Harvest (16m range):
This was the hardest boss in SR80, because piercing
I overdosed a bit before fighting Kuba as I couldn’t believe this was possible, but he was easier than fabius, just keep walking out of his pools.
well this was furthest I ever got
