This is a build based around an MI that drops from Gargabol. Since it doesn’t exist in the game yet I had to test the Fire Bolt concept using Bloodsworn Sigil which is basically doing the same thing as that MI.
How does the build work when the MI doesn’t exist?
Don’t sweat it, in truth you can make this work using only Vitality to Fire items. Although the MI isn’t picked for the conversion but rather for the flat damage it adds to Doom Bolt.
Now Bloodsworn Sigil’s flat bonus isn’t as high as Gargabol’s Gun but it’s still a decent amount imo.
Why dual damage types?
Honestly I hate going this route but since our conversion doesn’t get rid of that useless Chaos damage we have to use it as well. Fortunately Chaos-Fire is decently supported in gear and devotions so it’s not an issue
What about Grim Fate?
That weapon isn’t something I’d recommend even if your primary focus was Fire based Sigil caster. The damn thing is useless and inferior in every way to Warpfire or even Blazeheart. Grim Fate’s conversion is pretty low and it doesn’t give any ADCtH boost or even any significant damage boost to Sigil.
What about Time Dilation?
Didn’t test TD Fire Bolt with this particular setup tbh. So can’t say for certain but imo with the amount of CDR and HP regen we have it’d be a waste to not pick Dying God. Also the OA and Chaos damage bonuses help us a lot since we have two damage types
Although part of me tells me TD is superior
Bloodsworn Build vs Galgabor build?
I can’t speak about an item from stats alone. But my experience with my current build tells me Galgabor’s MI build should be slightly inferior to this one. As you’d loose out on your second nuker - Blazing Charge and loose out on very valuable RR from Warpfire.
The setup I theorycrafted around that MI is much safer in that it uses MoD. But lately I’ve been having a lot of playtime w/o any CB so I won’t exactly call CB a solid advantage
Enough talk…GT time
Grimtools (Theorycrafted Gargabol’s MI setup)-
Grimtools (Field tested Bloodsworn Medal setup)-
This was surprisingly fun to play then again which Doom Bolt build isn’t
Chaos Lightning, Blazing Meteors and Flame Torrent filling your screen is a very pleasant sight.
I had fun with this build and hope you guys do as well.
TD seems better than DG, not sure tbh since I am getting inferior kill times though TD is at level 1
I’ll update the GT link soon, I also have something else in mind and I am hoping I’ll get to update TD setup along with the other thing I have in mind
By picking TD you loose chaos damage bonus, roughly 200 OA and 40% Crit damage. But you gain 2x DB and 2x Blazing Charge, also your BoD and BS cooldowns get 6 second reduction helping your defenses.
