Hi guys, what’s up. I just got super into this game all of the sudden and I’m finding the devotion system and the build system in general to be really intricate and engaging. It’s like PoE with better ambiance, graphics, and game pacing!
I am playing a vit conversion Deathknight with Cadence and Ravenous Earth as main skills. At some point if I get the right gear I might try Aether conversion, but those builds are completely gear dependent, so I won’t do anything with it for a while. (Oh, but I do have an Empowered Soul Splitter…would you recommend trying a 2H Aether build?).
At this exact moment, my character looks like: www.grimtools.com/calc/lV7Mb4bN
(I can’t link).
I am trying to build something that will let me farm gear but that doesn’t need gear…this being my first (good) character. The 15% conversion from the aura makes a big difference when playing self-found. (Also, building vit makes Ravenous Earth better, and RE gives me a much-needed way to clear trash and to proc Twing Fangs).
I know there’s a random drop shield with 10% and a random drop trinket with 10% as well, but those will just have to wait until they drop.
I’m finding him to be quite strong. My only other character is about a ~69 purifier and this character is much much stronger. I’m loving the tanky style, too.
I was comfortably doing Crucible without ever spiking down in damage until I got straight ONESHOT by the final boss of wave 150. (Grrr, no idea what he did to me, anybody know? Or are the bosses random in Crucible?).
Anyway, I’m mostly just here for suggestions. What would you do if this were your character and you wanted to improve it? What gear would you try to get, etc?
I do have a better plan for devotions. After working on it for at least an hour I finally found a few different ways to get Hourglass, Dying God, and Rattosh in the same build. I think the best I found for a vit DK is this one:
Not a single point is unused, so I will switch to this build when I have 55 (I have 52).
Basically, this one ended up working by switching Scorpion for Imp. Scorpion is useful for my build and Imp really isn’t, but Scorpion is 5 for 5 and Imp is 5 for 6, and I can’t find a way to make it work with the Scorp. (Does anyone know a better way to get those three devotions?).
There’s also the option of lizard + 1 point in Wendigo.
And, for another way, non-synergistic, but at least creative, I actually managed to get there with lion, panther, wretch: http://grimtools.com/calc/pZr3wAGN
Thanks in advance for all your advice. I love this game and look forward to many years of theorycrafting here.
