Some people said, I am the “Maya of Bleeding Builds”. That´s quite an honor because I am quite impressed with her pet builds although I don´t understand them.
In this thread, which I could update regularly, I will collect all Bleeding Builds I made and I know of. I can´t go back to all the old builds (some lost in old forum), but if you want me to add something, just say so.
For me, the most important one: Bloody Assassin by TZ_Tz
Because of this thread I started to play my Bleeding Trickster. This is the reason for all my builds and thoughts about Bleeding Builds (so blame him, if you don´t like my posts! )
Bleeding Warder by Shoot2033
Absolute beast. Yes, Guillotine got nerfed again, but this build is still strong. “Strong” like in “GRONK-STRONG”!
Bleeding Conjurer (has to be updated to 188.8.131.52)
Easy to play build with insane RR and up to 66 % Physical Resistance (before Ghoul).
Perhaps not as strong as other builds, but quite fun and easy to play. But no EoR…doesn´t help with Bleeding Builds.
Bleeding Ranged Archon by Stupid Dragon
Can´t say anything about it, but when checking Grimtools, it has to work! (Can´t test it because…well, Ranged Builds are not my specialty…)
Surprisingly strong. Very good ADctH, very high Crit Percentage.
Don´t know why it works, but it does! Very fluid gameplay, strong in SR. Over 30 % Damage Absorption.
Tested it. Well, quelle surprise, standing in Seal with 12/12 Wendigo Totem does the trick. Damage is not going through the roof, but enough to kill fast. SR 65/66 viable.
The last one. Easy to play, Flashbang fits well into skill rotation.
Oh, what a ride. 3 (!) Buttons to push (Mousebuttons included), no Heal outside ADctH and cooldowns. 4 craftable items for massive %-Physique for DA and Cunning Dump. Over 100 % Crit Damage, kills very fast. No kiting, no surrender…just hit everything! SR 65/66 made, further test perhaps another day.
Variant: Frenzied Berserker …a Crucible Setup (devotionwise) without Ghoul for crazy pilots like @John_Smith, @Shoot2033, @ya1, @Superfluff, @sir_spanksalot, etc… and, of course, @Nery, who wished for this build, with even more damage and Crit. Good luck, if you try it.
Bleeding Witchblade ; Blade Arc spam…have to see, how it works. Edit: It does work.
Bleeding Pet Conjurer by Maya
No clue about Pet Builds but I know Maya a little bit. If it isn´t easy to play and couldn´t kill everything Crate throws at her, she wouldn´t post it.
Bleeding Witch Hunter by Superfluff
Didn´t play it myself but everything seems to be strong on this build. And like Maya: Superfluff wouldn´t post it if it is garbage.
Some builds may use Bleeding as a second form of damage.
Builds, I am working on.: (rough sketches; any input is appreciated)
Bleeding Deathknight with Cadence and Blade Arc Nuke
Sometimes, I have an idea and try to make a build viable. Sometimes, the whole concept seems to fit, but the results are…not good. Two examples, perhaps someone wants to work on it.
Bleeding Ranged Vindicator
I took up Adoomgod´s challenge and tried to make something with Bloodborer. Well, I suck at playing ranged and this build sucks, too. Flashy FX for a Bleeding Build, sadly, no damage.
I really thought this might be a build which plays like good ol´ vanilla Trickster: Mobile, High Crit, lots of WPS…well, it doesn´t. It doesn´t survive (had problems to finish campaign (SR 50)), no AoE…absolute fail. If Crate wants to make more Bleeding (Melee) Builds viable with Oathkeeper outside Archon, there have to be buffs for Bleeding to Righteous Fervor or another AA-Replacer like Shard of Beronath (imho).
That´s all for now; if anybody wants things to be added, just tell me.
Why is this guy so addicted to Bleeding Builds?
Well, when I started Grim Dawn, I had two types of damage in mind: Chaos and Bleeding.
If I had chosen Chaos, this thread might look like this:
