Got a Blood Orb of Ch’Thon earlier…Looks shweet. I was already farming to try and get the Outcast’s Secret, thinking I would try and make a multi-devastation build. Looking at Blood Orb…Well, now I’m wondering how a combination would go, maybe Arcanist/Occultist for some Warlock action.
So I did some digging, and I made a little theory craft…But it kinda seems like I’m missing something. So I thought I’d post it here and check, before I went out of my way to be looking for gear for this.
Obviously would be using Outcast’s Secret, and Blood Orb.
Also thinking three pieces of the Clariovoyant’s Set, can’t use four because the last is a hat.
I did spot the amulet that acts similarly to the Secret helm, Arcane Shard of Agrivix…With the Blood Orb on, that WOULD be converted, right? Even though it’s an item skill?
I thought about trying to do it pure caster, but with Blood Orb, and scaling Chaos/Aether…Aether Ray was the only thing I saw where that would really work out on Arcanist, and nothing stuck out on Occultist. So I thought perhaps maybe a melee style, when I wasn’t casting Devastations. Solael’s, the Transmuter, Reckless Power, Iskandra’s, and do Aether/Chaos mostly.
That did raise some questions there however, namely…Can anyone see a better casting option, other than Ray? Can I even use a Scepter in melee, I’ve never tried it. I figured, since I didn’t have a melee attack on either tree, I’d use the skill from
Does that have a CD? Would the Phys-Elemental on Iskandra do me any good, or would it not chain convert? I didn’t think we could chain convert in Grim Dawn.
Assuming melee works, then I’d be thinking https://grimcalc.com/build/1007-Aqhp2z generally.
If it doesn’t, then Ather Ray seems to be where it’s at, and that’d be https://grimcalc.com/build/1007-at5dGM
Answers, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. I’ve not particularly made many casters so far in Grim Dawn, so I can’t say as I’m certain on all the ins and outs. Also, if anyone can think of another Devastation styled item skill/proc of any kind, or maybe a Devotion, that would go well with this build, I’d appreciate it.
Really, the dream here is I drop a Devastation, which triggers Secret, which triggers Shard, and then whatever hero/boss was under that mess just kinda dies before the rubble clears. Obviously I can’t just drop Devastations forever though, so I need something to clear the trash with when it gets in my way.
