Currently Gravechill is lacking item support. The only legendary that comes to mind is Mythical Deathbound Amethyst and it sucks.
This is a Drain Essence build for its transmuter Gravechill.
This is a non-MI version of this build - http://www.grimtools.com/calc/vNQ98KXN
I’ll try to summarize everything that I deem important:-
-Spellbinder was preferred over Reaper since it brings Damage Absorb, energy management, CDR and a Nuker to the table.
Alternatively Apostate can also be considered its energy management isn’t too shabby and Rune of Haggard is pretty solid if used right.
-Since sheet DPS abysmally low I had to compensate for it through a nuker i.e Trozan’s sky shard. The second modifier of TSS isn’t worth it unless you have Frostburn damage to work with which we don’t so we get remaining points in the final modifier
Alternatively you can go for Bone Harvest for nuke as well
-Since we lack Night’s Chill for RR we have to resort to using Crescent Moon and Necrosis for more RR
-The Off Hand was selected for Vitality to Cold conversion, aim for the highest possible conversion value. If you’re lucky enough then you might get max rolls on Life Leech resistance and Energy Leech Resistance
-Gloves and Amulet have been chosen as they restore whatever ADCtH was gutted from our main skill through the use of the transmuter
-The MIs help us cap cast speed and resistance. Don’t look at me like that we have no gear to support this build. These are level 75 MIs minus the boots. I don’t think MI drops have been increased I seem to be finding more double rare affixes on redeemer pants than on MIs
-For devotions you can get Crab for more defenses through Arcane Barrier but with ADCtH on our main skill, two defensive skills and one Circuit Breaker I thought the shotgun from Blizzard is a much better choice (in fact I enjoyed it so much I’ll update all my cold builds with Blizzard if I can squeeze it in)
Gravechill has a cool animation (no pun intended), it’s hard to build around due to lacking gear support
In my opinion the devs should do what they did for Tainted Power and make dedicated set for it.
Anyways, I personally enjoyed this which is why I posted it even though I was uncertain whether a guide was needed for something with little to no item support
The cool animation, multiple cold projectiles flying at the screen and whirlpool easily make this one of my favorite Cold Casters. Hope you guys enjoy this
