Ulvar1 is the author of this compendium.
From the thread
[Feedback] Uroborruk's Reaping Arc the almighty Z hinted with this information regarding next patch (18.104.22.168)
On a similar note, I can’t say when v22.214.171.124 will be released as there isn’t exactly anything pressing that needs to be addressed, but supporting Grim Dawn is still very much on our minds.
I can say already that there are some Epic sets that could use some love, so we’ll probably give those a pass for the patch as well.
So let’s adress this by making a new build compendium where we celebrate and hate on epic set builds
What is this?
This will be a community collection / challenge to make end game viable builds using epic sets! Perhaps this initiative could both trigger some nice builds and also provide some feedback about the sets!
Rule 1: Build must use an entire Epic set, that is not a set with only jewelry and have more than 3 pieces. This means that the following epic-sets are NOT eligible:
The Arcane Tempest - I make exception for this if the granted skill is used as main ability, i.e. not only for stats.
Misery of Alkamos
The Paragon of Panetti
Note: you can use these items of course, but then you have to use another epic set as well, from the list of eligible epic sets below.
Note: I made these rules just to not ”bloat” the compendium with 18 builds using Magelord or Alkamos rings same with the aetherstorm set ring + amulet set.
Rule 2: The build must exists, i.e. no pure theory crafts.
Rule 3: Build needs to be ”playable” current patch. Can have been made in previous patches but with no major gear/skill/performance changes.
Rule 4: Besides using an entire epic set, you can use whatever items you want – GD stash like crazy or make a reasonable build – its up to you
Sets that are eligible
Corruptor of Souls
The Silver Sentinel
The Unseeing Gaze
The Eastern Oath
Keeper of the Blaze
How do I submit build?
No own thread for build is needed, you can just submit the GT link and the information about what content you can do with the build by writing in this thread
Try to write all information in one post, the same post that you post the GT link to. In that way it will be much easier for me to link to it in the compendium
No need to provide video proofs etc, just mention what the build is able to do.
(in alphabetical order, excluding “the”)
If you know about more epic set builds, just post them below and I will add them

@fordprefect for help with polishing this idea and his enthusiasm
Nice, so I should update and retest my Witch Hunter and share the stormserpent one
Didn’t make it, maybe I won’t not sure.

Flame Keeper build, I played Crucible successfully
with it but I didn’t test it properly (I mean get proper time) because
I was playing very badly then (instead of badly as currently )
Here’s a 126.96.36.199 link I played:
Here’s a 188.8.131.52 link with untested new take on it with focus on Static Strike
and Lightning to Fire conversion: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/4ZDPGgkZ
(not sure if it’s better)
If someone test it better in Crucible / SR / makes more up-to-date build,
feel free to swap it out.
Here’s my thread with videos:

LOL. Love this post. Haha! As always, looks great! Looking forward to reading more posts here over time!

For Blazeseer I have every possible combo of 2 masteries that this set supports.
All with 2Handers because IOnlyPlay2hBuilds.
These are only theorycrafts though, not tested
might need to think through adding them to compendium.
Guardian / BWC / Reaping Arc Shieldbreaker
Sigil / BWC / Oblivion Pyromancer
Guardian / Sigil / Oblivion Sentinel

Totally fine by me
I missed it somehow in the rules.
This is a good motivator to test builds - getting them in the compendium
April 5, 2021, 9:33pm
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

@Valinov has a magnificient Blind Assassin Spellbreaker
(look at the cooldown!). I’ve just asked him if he tested it.
April 5, 2021, 9:42pm
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
Spellbreaker is an iconic classic grim dawn class. While there have been some builds posted lately, I think there needs to be a few more. So in the next few days I will be posting another one. This one is unique in that it allows for the single highest amount of flat CDR; 57% with high rolls. It allows for devotion cooldown only possible otherwise with eternity offhand.
The unseeing eye 4 pierce is chosen f…
I know pierce builds are somewhat scare out there and I thought it was time to add another great one to the mix. This build utilizes The Unseeing Gaze , a nice rare set which gives a solid amount of CDR for a melee build to use. I combined this with the Belgothian’s Carnage relic to give very good cooldown reduction. To that base of solid CDR I tried to stack pierce weapon damage as high as possible. To do so we use that often criticized acid to pierce on Mythical Sp…
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.
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)
April 5, 2021, 10:07pm
@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
April 5, 2021, 10:14pm
I guess I include them just because you are valinov
#1 GDstasher NA
I have a build somewhere that uses three full sets (two of which are blue) that was a 6min build
