Hi everyone, another meme idea from me. We all know Deathmarked Blademaster with Executioner’s Judgment, which was kinda disappointing to me back then but should be better with monster resist changes, nevertheless that build was too squishy for me. Anyway I was thinking cold builds after the monster resist changes and came up with this.
PS: This is not a whole guide but merely a showcase.
This level is a bit hard for the build, death is inevitable and Kuba is not killable with %100 succeed rate.
Ravager of Minds Kill
No changes maded. Used Vitality,Acid, Fire,Cold, Lightning, Bleeding resist pharma aswell as Health, OA, Armor and Lifesteal. Added Aether Cluster on the skillbar but didn’t need it. Fight was easier than I expect so maybe it can be done with less pharma aswell.
Thanks for reading, any commen & feedback is welcome
I’m not a CR speedster but yes it is imho. Though some previously buffed archetypes might require nerfs. Chillwhisper is probably one of them and Blade Spirit buff could be reversed. Cold TSS builds should also be checked to be sure. I’ll test Cold Blitz and FW soon, retest some of my existing cold builds aswell but there’s probably too much time before we get 18.104.22.168 so folks can enjoy breaking new CR records with cold caster builds.
Afaik only Lee and Banana are frequently test builds since the patch release and I saw no Korba in their youtube channel and I don’t like Korba that much to prioritise Cold Rimetongue is also doing good times as I see.
Cold Spirits w/o Chillwhisper (or in general non-bleed Spirits w/o mods) were too weak imo (not sure about now). If you find Chillwhisper too strong, then nerf it not the skill itself. One of the reasons why my recent Cold Caster Infi maxes Shadow Strike and 1p Blade Spirits despite having full Pierce conversion.
The Korba Trickster is pretty dope but the “little thin” Chillwhisper with 14% Phys res is probably not a not a good all-rounder. Well maybe it is but I think a variant tested in a Top 20 thread fashion would be better to look at.
Chillwhisper is insanely squishy. Reaper, Level 100 (GD 22.214.171.124) - Grim Dawn Build Calculator While playing this build yesterday -after quite some time- at SR75, some Reaper of Souls literally one shot me, as in 100% to 0% with one basic attack. I had -15% Hp modifier but i was shocked. And my build has some defensive layers + health, unlike the ultra squishy glass cannon that is on one of the above videos.
The one on the video has zero hp and armor (without those buffs) or circuit breakers though. So the 4-5% ish phy res mean nothing.
My point is, the set is very squishy itself and if it is to be nerfed for whatever reason, it should probably be it’s AoE, but then it needs a big compensation on defense.
