I’ve been playing for 600+ hours, mostly campaign.
I’m often amazed by how little difference there is between my builds and builds posted by top players… but somehow they always seem to be 3-4 times more effective. Clearly there is a lot of thought that went into then, and things I consider trivial must be more important than I think… but I have no idea WHAT. Or sometimes I just flat out don’t understand WHY they work so well…
I want that insight, and I can’t think of a better way than to apply that thinking to a build I know and have already tinkered with.
Can you guys pick my build apart and tell me how to improve on it ?
Be it gear, skills, devotions … stats I’ve ignored ? Anything is welcome, even “This is trash, start over” if it is warranted and explained.
I’ve always wanted to make a build around Word of Pain (for no particular reason other than I like it). I knew I needed a solid single target attack as well, and I’ve bounced around Storm box, RoH, even changing the other mastery to try Thermite and Mortar or Wind devil and Storm Totems… I’ve tried Aether with blaze Herald, Chaos with Visage of black flame, Pierce with an Infiltrator… I’ve settled on using obliteration for now as it is giving me the best results so far, but it’s much harder to kite with that skill. Yet to try are devastation and PRM.
Basic gameplay is WoP on basically the whole screen to proc Elemental seeker every second, drop Seal underfoot and Obliterate anything with a star next to its name.
Potion, Mirror, Nul, Arcane resonance and WoR when necessary, Glyph out when pressed.
I have a few defensive procs as well that help keep me alive
(Beronath is basically there for the elemental bonus, but I figured I might as well bind it to my left click. I never really use it)
Things I already know need to be improved (But don’t know how) :
0% physical resistance (No idea where to source that)
Get my hands on a Mythical version of that off-hand
…and I’m probably a pretty mediocre pilot as well, so maybe I just need to get better.
Any and all forms of help are appreciated.
Oh! and if any actual good pilot can take it for a spin so that I can have a feel for how much I’m part of the problem, that would be really cool.
