[22.214.171.124.] DoT ’n Proc - Elemental Deceiver
The build is better in FG.
- Storm Box has been buffed in the Gildam Medal.
- Malakor Mace has been nerfed but that doesnt hurt the build much.
- Rings now have 8% adcth each. That’s a lot. Kra’vall is now another mob like any other. You can facetank the fight.
- This Korvaak Helm has a very good proc and +1 all skills, i.e. better than Gaze of Empyrion.
With 126.96.36.199, Obliteration (granted ability from Off-hand) now has pierce. It’s offcially and obviously better than Stormfire.
And the FX on Korvaak Helm’s proc is really nice.
Toggles + WoR + BoD.

Details on the build
I’ve always loved DoTs (Damage Over Time) and have played some really fun multiple DoT builds on GrimDAIL and Grimarillion mods. I’ve never found one on Vanilla GD but here we are!
Word of Pain (linked to Elemental Storm)
Curse of Frailty (linked to Eldritch Fire)
Storm Box of Elgoloth (linked to Hand of Ultos).
The gameplay is simple, DoT everything and run. If something stays alive (not often), finish it with Stormfire or Obliteration. For defence purposes, you have incredible sustain with 2 heals/buffs: Word of Renewal and Blood of Dreeg; and Inquisitor Seal does wonders, as usual.
Nothing special, going for max RR and OA/DA on the way.
1 - The nice combo for Inquisitor Elemental builds since 184.108.40.206 is Empyrion Helm + Mace of Malakor for an incredibly large and powerful Aura of Censure.
2 - Core for the build is also the -15% elemental resistances from the Occultist Conduit Amulet.
3 - Rings, Gloves and Shoulders for very nice procs.
LOKARR AND NEMESES
Nice and easy fight, as seen in the video. Valdaran, Moosilauke and Alexander are on the easy-kill list. I didn’t encounter the others yet.
MAGE HUNTER VARIATION
Actually, I came to this Deceiver build after a rework on my Mage Hunter. I wanted to make an Auramancer and failed miserably; I tried a full proc’ build and it worked really well. And then it hit me: I could create my beloved DoT’er build with Occultist’s CoF instead!
Mage Hunter has less RR, less life sustain and physical resistance. You can’t facetank Lokarr like I did with the Deceiver in the video but you have: a powerful panic button (Mirror of Ereoctes), a debuff (Nullification), better OA, great energy sustain and damage absorption.
This is a really nice guide for Crucible on this build from thejabrixone :
QUICK LEVELING GUIDE
Take Flame Torrent asap for a nice damaging ability. Then make your way to Rhowan (Elemental Storm) and Solael Witchblade (Eldritch Fire), with Viper on the way. And finally Hand of Ultos. From there, you can ditch Flame Torrent and finish the path.
Word of Pain is one the best ability early game. It will carry you through Normal/Veteran. By that time, you’ll have a heal (WoR), some good defence (Seal) and offence (Deadly Aim and Aura). I usually have a component ability on off-hand to spam (Fireball/Greater) instead of taking Storm Box right away.
So, to sum up, rush Aura of Censure: WoP (at least 8 points each), Deadly Aim (1), WoR (5), Seal (5) then max Aura of Censure. From there, Occultist: CoF (5), Vulnerability (10) and BoD (12).
What I love with this build is you can adapt your skill points for what you actually need: damage, RR elemental, DA, aether/chaos resistances etc.
Shard #65 was done 3 times. No deaths and even one run with a Grava’. I won’t do any shard further but if you try it, let me know
Proof of 65th
This is a high damage DoT and Run build. It is very solid and totally greenless, as usual.
I hope you’ll like it!
