Build Compendium X (Forgotten Gods)

Main reason is there aren’t that many bleed skills in the game. Even less skills that have substantial bleed worth building around, as opposed to some skill’s “flavour” bleed (looking at you Primal Strike, Forcewave and Bloody Pox). Then even less skills that are cool to level with (transmuted Blade Arc is viable endgame but levelling with 5 sec cooldown melee skill will feel like shit). Add in that some skills just don’t have much budget support (Counter Strike, Vire’s Might) you’ll have our current situation when noone just bothered to make such a build.

I can vouch for only one bleed build that feels decent enough to level - it is the blade spirit build with Scarab Shell. E.g. this thread. There are even some levelling tips down in the comments.

Oh ok, no wonder! at least I’m playing a LIghtning Warder which is alot of fun! thanks for the reply!

Are the builds that are listed in the beginning of this thread still usable? They are on older patches, but maybe still usable?

Depends on the build in question, but most of them are.

Hello Dragon

After reading your rules I realised I dont have a vid of crucible under 6mins in the topic (only 6:36 naked with extra spawn). So here it is, with 13 +13 + 5 + 12 + 12: 55 tributes spent.
I wanted to only show naked runs but if its really mandatory I’ll also add it in the build description :slightly_smiling_face:.

@Stupid_Dragon Thanks for putting this together. I didn’t see any of my builds on there. Could you add them to the compendium?

Edit: Oh, I see I need to put it in a specific format with green text for you to add. I’ll try to update when I have a chance.

[] Vire’s Might Vanquisher Templar, Cooldown Cycler Mage Speed Tank

[] Devastating Spellscourge Battlemage, Max Block Cooldown Tank (Video)

[] Wildblood Conjurer, Super Life Leech Hybrid Tank (Video)

[] Blightlord Blazesser Shieldbreaker, Bombs and Bros (Video)


I see from other entries we’re indeed not listing passive/WPS skills anymore, so I left that out :smiley:

Thanks again!!!


Thanks for the builds! I really want to do the Vire’s Might Templar build. Could you post leveling guides for that character at some point? :slight_smile: Thanks!

Hi Dragon, i’d like to submit an update of my commando build. Currently it is listed as physical melee mortar and is horribly outdated, thank you!
