I’ve been sitting on this build for a bit now. I love it, but It was always lacking a bit of punch. With 126.96.36.199 it got good enough to share, and with 188.8.131.52 it got good enough to compete with the top dogs.
(Craft for slow resist)
Gear and Devotions
Bramblevine, Misery, Conduit, and Mark of Lethal intents are core.
4 pieces Perdition set for armor and Retaliation damage.
Rings to hardcap EV or add acid / retal damage. They are otherwise interchangeable.
Pants could be replaced with Venomskin Legwraps for better resists and more damage, at the cost of armor and physical resist. (I’m still unclear which is better)
Devotions are all for sustain/defense, Retaliation, or RR
Build could benefit from more cooldown, better CC resist, and a better source of DR.
So few buttons, you can almost play one-handed.
Deploy Wendigo Totem, cast GV repeatedly, use Ascension, absolution and the 2 movement skills when needed… that’s it.
The key to the damage output is the extended duration on GV (8 seconds with all gear) allowing you to stack about 7 in a pretty wide area. One GV is usually enough for mobs. A bit slow to start on bigger targets, but once it gets going it’s pretty powerful. Sustain mostly comes from ADCtH on GV and Wendigo Totem.
Curtesy of @tqFan :
Cleared SR80 somewhat easily. Got bodied twice by Valdaran and Theodin Marcel in the boss room, but I wasn’t very careful. In my last run, I ended up aggo’ing them both by mistake, but with a bit of kiting I was able to beat both. Zantarine is very long to kill for some reason, but not very hard. Everything else is kind of easy. It can probably go a lot further in the right hands.
1: Cast lots of GV around
2: Dodge the red needles
(No pictures, sorry)
Bourbon clones and Lokar were pretty easy.
Will try more of them later
There is no doubt that this build can be improved, so if you have suggestions I’d be happy to hear them.
