Totally fine by me :slight_smile: I missed it somehow in the rules.
This is a good motivator to test builds - getting them in the compendium

It is also rule in dragons compendium I think

I have some theory crafts myself that I wanna play one day

anyway, I know I have seen Blind Assassin builds and Daega set builds, but not recently… if someone know about them or any recenty updates let me know :slight_smile:

@Valinov has a magnificient Blind Assassin Spellbreaker
(look at the cooldown!). I’ve just asked him if he tested it.

The build I was thinking about with blind assassin was a melee build that used one devotion I think it was bull rush to just proc like popcorn.

Hope build exists and is tested in game, looks fun

both of these are faster on current patches with new items/tweaks. the infiltrator can push sub 5 pretty consistently when shadow strike focused or 5:15-5:25ish when beronath aa. The breaker can maybe push 5:30 at best.
I also made a neat hybrid trickster that was fun/solid. https://www.grimtools.com/calc/pZrdRL32


I never got around to testing this… but Sharpshooter pally with silly GD stashed greens. On paper looks like a monster, but who knows. https://www.grimtools.com/calc/lNkG0DlN

the augur + Pyran sorc https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNYp7L4Z (old gt link. could use a bit of updating)

Lightning retaliation warder with Dawn shield https://www.grimtools.com/calc/0V098daZ (not tested since reta nerfs, but doesnt look too badly hurt)

@Valinov what can unseeing gaze trickster and augur sorc do?

I kinda wanted this compendium to be like epic version of dragons compendium, but less strict in format and no “video proof” etc. But at least one sentence what stuff build has achieved is appreciated

trickster is ~5-5:20ish I cant remember the pyran one… its been since right after the augur set was added that I tested that… That was hundreds of builds ago lol

dawn rta guy was 5:30ish? cant remember exactly

I guess I include them just because you are valinov :sweat_smile:

#1 GDstasher NA
I have a build somewhere that uses three full sets (two of which are blue) that was a 6min build

Guess it’s sharpshooter’s duty night. Lee had tried one recently that was stronger than Valdun, so this should be a banger with an extra +1 all purifier after patch

I think the following could use a pass over:
Dreadwalker - not quite as good after losing +2necro

Also a mythical version of the adornments of valiance and deathly miasma would be great additions

Nevermind, the way this build looks doesn’t bring me joy, so I’ll just find Lee’s video and link. :sweat_smile:

Excluded from list but don’t care, going to revisit Oathbreaker set. Last time I tried the sheet looked amazing and yet it was awful in practice

Best I could manage was around 6minutes if I remember correctly

Don’t have any pet builds for submission sadly as I have never been able to make an Epic Set based Pet build perform to my satisfaction.

Wondering if I should make a statement in bold saying how it is impossible and Zantai’s sense of balance is an epic fail just to see if someone might take up the challenge and increase the number of pet builds :3

But that aside, a bit of off-topic related on-topic stuff…

As someone who has never done any actual farming, how easy/hard is it to farm for epic items compared to legendary?

Do you go to lower SR shards for those if you want to focus on epic items?


I see a ritualist briar skele set in there, so I’m on it. I have no idea what I’m doing


Epics are very easy, except rings/amulet/medal. And transmuting is cheaper. I do this quite often since I play SSF a lot.

I think someone did a loot comparison of SR, Iirc normal SR was more epics and also will be way quicker. Also totems are good for epics.

I might change my mind, I just don’t wanna have 69 builds with magelord and alkamos rings LOL. In the case of mad lees build that valinov posted, I can do exception “if the set granted skill is main ability”
