Active Skills: Righteous Fervor, Ishtak’s Mercy, Vire’s Might, Blood of Dreeg, Ascension, Curse of Frailty, Doombolt, Unleash Chaos, Summon Guardian of Empyrion.
Passive Skills: Solael’s Witchfire, Possession, Resilience, Severed Faith, Presence of Virtue.[/li]

Please bear in mind that Rune of Wretched Desires makes the build significantly stronger (safer); I simply did not have the blueprint while testing the char.
Another option for the build is Revenant + Blood Sigil of Ch’Thon. Please check the latest edition: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNYdPgXZ
The build is focused on Righteous Fervor autoattacks with extremely useful WPS (2 railguns, 2 explosions). Although this is a ranged char, he basically doesn’t need to kite due to decent tankiness and 2 destination-based mobility skills which are also instruments of offense: they damage/debuff and help to draw monsters up in line to be railgunned.
Damage is magnified by Ascension and Hungering Void; Time Dilation allows to reduce Ascension CD to 18 seconds with 8 seconds of vulnerability window and make Hungering Void almost constant. TD is tied to Doom Bolt with 100% chance of activation.
Time Dilation makes this build a bit complicated from the skill timing point, but it gives its results. The usual phrase for your keyboard solo is: Curse of Frailty, Blood of Dreeg, Ascension, Unleash Chaos, Doombolt, Doombolt, Unleash Chaos.
Crucible 151-170 is completed in 10 minutes with 4 blessings and 0 banners which allows repetitiveness. The result is stable.
Shattered Realm 75 was easy (I might have been lucky), did not try going further so far; If I decide to do it and succeed, I will update the post.
Callagadra was defeated (make sure you cleared the area of healers!), Ravager of Minds was not - it is real, but I don’t have enough patience to do everything correctly :).
For leveling purposes I rushed Tectonic Shift for speed and damage and used Obsidian Tremor for some time.
In theory, [18.104.22.168] made the build weaker. Nevertheless, Crucible timing even turned out to become slightly better. Here is my first attempt with the patch (actually, there had been several failed attempts before I noticed I had unintentionally swapped weapon sets and Hungering Void had been inactive after the update lol).
Thank you guys for your requests for a video. Due to them, I learnt to record and upload :). Enjoy! And if you notice I am doing something tactically wrong, your advices will be appreciated.
Methods of application of mobility skills:
0:13, 3:37 - offensive jumps
0:34 - adjusting line of fire in favour of railgun WPS
1:34 - anti-regeneration jump vs Chubaka’s pools
09:07 - I’m tired, I’m leaving (mobility fail)
09:17 - finally, a successful evasion
2 items of my build dropped
Killing Callagadra took 13 minutes.
- Choose an arena where you can run in circles for a long time (enough to have sandworms disappear). Sunbane Oasis is inconvenient for Disengage skills, but complies to that rule.
- Kill everyone in the arena in advance (healers!!!).
- Whenever Callagadra casts sandworms (the long animation of hitting the ground), take a distance of 17 meters. It often casts them after teleportation.
- Don’t be me! Use consumables!
