⚔ Nery's beginner build collection

Introduction

Since the tendency is to create collection of builds,here’s mine.It’s part of crossed build links system,that is meant to help people find what they are looking for more easily.

I love different kind of builds and gear,here’s beginner or budget ones at the same place.

I consider beginner build,one with leveling guide,explanations and easy to farm,faction or crafted gear.

Budget builds are to my mind,the ones with MI items with yellow affixes,blue items. Semi budget,the ones with farmable legendary gear,like Dark One,Krieg or now Vanquisher

You stole my :crossed_swords: in the title thread :sweat_smile:

I added this collection to my collection. Now Dragon needs to do collection thread then the circle is closed

I used the swords for cross reference on purpose!

Stupid Dragon needs to be in that network. :+1:

We cross our swords, we cross our links. All for the sake of the beginner build crusade!

up to now I have used the swords to see if Iget replies in my collection :stuck_out_tongue:

Yes, I need that Stupid :dragon:'s collection for my collection too…

Thanks for adding my skater to the links! I’ll do some more SR runs with my G2 setup this evening and will update the main post to make it more suitable as a semi budget build.

NP.

I hope to see more builds from you in the future,cause your guide is very interesting to read!

Do you think I should re-post the CT spellbinder guide btw? Since you have this beautiful Krieg version of it?

If you have time,why not? I love the Krieg binder and yours with item from Hyram and faction gear is excellent stepping stone.Plus I personally don’t know how to level Spellbinder :sweat:

I can give it a try, I got kinda burned out from that build with all the freaking nerfs! I felt same way with cold rune caster but managaed to put it back up again.

I need to do some video guides for my builds soon, Do you want me to do some for yours aswell? like 20 min videos summarixing the build guide basically and show some gameplay

Someone doing the work for me?Yes please.Plus your video channel is popular and will have broader audience.

Same apply for you,if you’re interested in Crucible tests for some build,you can send me your build and I can test it.

Hi im using : [1.0.4.0] Beginner's melee 2H Lightning Elementalist by stupid dragon on HC. i would like to ask You guys could You look into it and tell me would be there anything major to change in skills/devotion or what sort of end game stuff i could look up for this build since there were all those dlc’s and patches that maybe changed something major and im to noob yet to figure it out :frowning: also its HC mode so would there be a better devotion route to not die or it’s fine ?

Hi,Cubix Stupid Dragon said,that he received multiple requests about updating his build.His idea was to create similar Conjurer,but Idk.Personally have not played with this build.

But definitely guide needs update.There are lots of new faction and monster infrequent items,since the build was posted.For example lightning 2h weapon can be Korvan Storm Halbred,which is excellent for Primal Strike build.

Also if you wan fire 2h Elementalist,check Blazerush.You need to craft it,but recipe is faction bought.

Then someone will make a collection of collections thread :eyes:

Post in the post,collection in the collection,Spiegel im Spiegel,etc.

Nery: what are the pros and cons with DW melee trickster vs. infiltrator from a beginner perspective?

As I see it, infiltrator has the option to also go down the pierce damage route whereas trickster can go with bleed.

In my leveling,actually underestimated the power of Savagery early on.It’s still very strong even in normal difficulty,while in Infiltrator you need to wait to level 55 to get Beronath fury from component.Even without conversion Savagery is pretty strong.

Infiltrator is less stressful against burst damage,especially in higher difficulties,because of seal and damage reduction,basically better defensively.

As pierce route,I like Belgo Infiltrator,but if you don’t have it or full Assassins set,it’s tougher to make.Bleeding Trickster also is gear dependent,I think.

yeah, probably not something you can do well with faction gaer / epics
