[Concept] Fire/Chaos hammerdin

The build concept comes from a simple idea: I like Biting Blades because swirling projectiles are awesome, but I’m not a big fan of acid damage.

Fortunately we can make it a sexy fire/chaos skill using conversion: http://www.grimtools.com/calc/M2gW37W2

  • 45% piercing to chaos
  • 50% piercing to fire
  • 80% vitality to fire
  • 100% acid to chaos

From there the main devotions would be Wendigo’s Mark [Biting Blades], Flame Torrent, Eldritch Fire. The only issue is that you can only start playing at level 90… :slight_smile: Feel free to steal the idea, I would like to see how it plays but I’m lazy to level another character for now.

You seem to really like that orb. :slight_smile:

Ahah do I? Conversion in general is very interesting but I have to admit this one is just too strong. It converts 100% of four damage types it’s madness!

Heh. No criticism at all intended. I think I remember you expressing great interest in word of pain combined with it back before xpac released, which stuck in my brain obviously.

Hmm, I am guessing you intentionally didn’t go for Amarastan Bladethrower for the exotic feel right?

Did not feel criticised! :slight_smile:

Yeah this build could use Word of Pain + its chaos RR and maybe Siphon Souls with Flame Torrent bound to it. I think we need more Apostates!

To be honest I did not remember this weapon before you commented. It does not have enough conversion or damage bonus.

It has 60% conversion on max rolls
With Venomblade Chest you get 35% more on max rolls

You have 95% of the skill dealing nothing but Acid damage

Alternatively you could extend your current concept to full chaos Direwolf Crest/Blademaster Talisman to DW Fangs + use Blood Of Dreeg for Acid->Chaos (using Darkblaze)

Sorry I’m a fan of single damage type :stuck_out_tongue:

I personally hoped that this component would finally fill the void of Pierce Casters but nope! More fuckin’ acid/chaos casters. Like we don’t have enough of those already.

For Pierce casters you have… Horn of Gandarr :stuck_out_tongue:

Mythical Pack of Treacherous Means + 2 Bladetwister Signet = 75% elemental damage converted to piercing but honestly I’m not sure where you can go from there. Maybe throw in a Beronath Reforged in the lot some elemental DoT is not wasted.

Dont want to be party breaker but blood orb converts acid to vitality.

Oops my bad. Remove the Orb then because the amulet is sufficient.

Yup 100% Converted, I mean 100% Agree :smiley:

Btw, since you brought this up, anyone know is it possible if we want make Obliteration Ray do full Chaos Damage?
It’s no possible to us to use Dual Off-Hand…

Not really. You can convert all of the fire but cold and lightning no, unfortunately.

Darkblaze Headguard: 30%
Blazeseer Girdle: 25%
Blade of the Black Flame: 30%
Voidheart: 25% each

Unfortunately, I hope Crate create conversion gear for Ele -->Chaos.
Full Elemental to Aether conversion is possible now.

Thanks KoalaeiO for the answer :slight_smile:

Yeah any extra source of conversion is always welcome. I’d love some fire to lightning!

Glad to chat! :slight_smile:

Yeah you’re right, conversion is always interesting :slight_smile:

Fire to lightning, I tried it on Sorceress
Only get around 25% fire to lightning.
I think currently there’s no gear that support for full conversion…

Glad to chat with you too :slight_smile:
