[Summoner] Terra Destroyer - The Unstoppable [COLOR=“Red”]Meteor Summoner[/COLOR]
Please don’t open it if you don’t wanna see One of The most Hated Nemesis in Grim Dawn History :
~Terra Destroyer - The Unstoppable Meteor Summoner~
These Summoner won’t summon you any pets, but Full of Meteor Rains instead…
With Total Damage Modified Chain Mirrors, you’ll be The Unstoppable Terra Destroyer…
You’ll press Infinite Loop Spell Buttons w/o realizing that there’s No Enemies Left…
~Tetra Element Aether Meteor~
You’ll see Green, Red, White and Blue Meteors…
Fire, Cold and Lightning Meteors actually will be Devastating Aether Meteors
~Featuring some Cool Mechanics~
- Full Aether Spells (Full Aether Conversions)
For Full Aether Conversion in these Builds, I use :
Decree of Aldritch, and The Magelord Rings
Another way for Aether Conversion is using combination of Gear Above with Diviner’s Raiment and Diviner’s Mask
Damage Conversions really makes Grim Dawn has a very large options for Build Diversity!
- CDR for Infinite Loop Spells
With a lot of CDRs from Gear, Skills, and Devotion, we’ll have a very Fast Cooldown for DPS Spells.
You may suffer a little bit confusing until you adapt for those “Always Ready” Spells.
If you can’t handle the Infinite Loop Spells playstyle, I recommend you to check 2nd Post for different concept and playstyle Build.
- CDR for Faster Devo Skills Cooldown
I mention this once again since CDR placed great emphasis on the Devotion Skill’s Cooldown.
CDR will make our Devotion Skills Cooldown faster thus will have Faster DPS Procs and no less important also faster Cooldown for Healing and Lifesteal Devo Skills like Giant’s Blood and Ghoulish Hunger.
Ghoul reset with TD is nice concept for acquired some form of Perma Lifesteal… Evenmore on Lifestealer Builds
- Chain Mirror with Extra Total Damage (Mirror = DPS Boost)
Mythical Iskandra’s Focusing Prism is a great amulet that gives Total Damage Modified by 15% to Mirror of Ereoctes
This make we have Greater DPS in Form of Invincibility Grava’s Dual Nullification can break this
Around 6.6s for Raining Meteors on Enemies is Cool, Not to Mention the Increasing DPS w/o fearing about incoming Damage…
- Damage Absorption
Arcanist is a Versatile Mastery, you’ll like it if you do a deep analysis on this mastery.
Crate is really Cool for making such this Masterpiece Mastery (Thumbs Up)
It has almost everything except Bossproof Elemental RR
Even for Melee Builds, now one of Arcanist Exclusive Skills has Attack Speed added!
Well, Mirror and Maivens are those Arcanist Skills for Damage Absorption.
Damage Absorption concept is really good if we combine it with other defensive layer friends…
- Damage Reflection
Damage Reflection is nice for increasing our Damage while fighting Bosses --> Here’s a sample Reflection Build
Mirror Damage Reflection comes with 100% Damage Absorption, and reflected it more than 100% if we put good points on it.
I always invest 12 points in Mirror for Faster Cooldown and Nice Damage Reflection Bonus.
Mythical Iskandra’s Ammy make it Sweeter…
- Nullification for Clear Bad AoE and Taming Reflect Enemies
Yes, this one also Cool Skills from Arcanist Mastery
Can Clear Reflection Enemies, Cronley’s Bubble, and also Clearing Bad AoE Damage taken.
Also can reduces target Elemental Damage, nice for Elemental Enemies.
I usually put 1 points for Nullification…
- Health Regen (CDR will reset the Cooldown Faster)
Flat Health Regeneration Skills like Word of Renewal, Blood of Dreeg, Giant’s Blood or Healing Rain sometimes will help us in very dangerous situations.
With CDR their Cooldown is faster thus we’ll have reliable Healing Skills as additional defensive layers
- Lifesteal / ADctH (Attack Damage converted to Health)
ADctH : 10%, and up to 95% with Ghoul Procs (CDR will reset the Cooldown)
Lifesteal Spells with Weapon Damage (WD) and Devo Lifesteal Skills (Ghoulish Hunger and Twin Fangs)
Skills that have Weapon Damage component can replenish our HP with Lifesteal.
Example of that Skills : Callidor’s Tempest (CT), Chaos Strike, Shadow Strike, etc…
Take a note, Ghoulish Hunger can become our Circuit Breaker since it also provides nice Physical Resist.
Huge ADctH from Ghoulish Hunger when activate, combine with WD Skills will Fully replenish our Health in a blink eye, out from thin air…
- Chance to Avoid Melee and Projectiles
These one also nice additional defensive layers if we stack it good enough.
Nighblade Mastery also has them, and due to nature of NB that need to fight in melee range, these kind of defensive mechanic is very usefull.
Well at least these two has chance to reduce incoming damage taken to our beloved toon… (when Mirror still on CD)
- Bad AoE Reduction
Aeon’s Hourglass and Maiven’s Conversion will help our Overcapped Resistances for reducing incoming AoE Damage Taken.
Well, we actually can just release a Peacemaker Nullification
- Knockdown, Petrify, and Confuse target for CC
Arcanist actually has it’s own Famous CC Skills called OFF - Olexra’s Flash Freeze I never meet Olexra in GD
I don’t use OFF for some reasons :
- I don’t want more spell buttons pressed
- OFF doesn’t affect Bosses --> it’s not usefull for triggering devo procs
- We don’t need more CC if we can Kill Enemies fast enough --> Good Offense is a Best Defense
I just mention here since this mechanic actually has it’s usefullness when leveling and surrounding with cruel mobs
This build has Knockdown, Petrify, and Confuse for CC
Note, sometimes CC skills will make you hard for targetting enemies, especially in default weapon attack melee builds.
Freeze and Stun is good as CC for default weapon attack melee builds.
Even Knockdown can make your Meteor Rain misses it’s target…
- Slow Resist
Slow Resist is very usefull for Kiting Builds and also in Crucible
This build has more than 90% slow resist, with Maximum 135% Run Speed
You can run for avoid some AoE Bad Pools for herding enemies in Meteors Landing Page… Well, I’m not talking about Online Advertising
- Up To 40% Physical Resist
To make it simple, thanks to Ghoul and Iskandra
- Energy Leech (This Build use Non Energy Regen Devo Skills)
Thanks to Fabric of Reality and Iskandra’s Elemental Exchange
- Energy Cost Reduction
Again Thanks to Arcanist Skills Mental Alacrity
See, Arcanist is Cool isn’t it ?
- Hidden Flat RR (No Flat RR from Mastery Skills and Devotion)
Hidden Flat RR will automatically triggered by OA, Cool isn’t it ?
- More than 80% Crit Damage
Besides RR, Crit Damage can Boost your DPS significantly, it’s Multiplicative
- No Green Gear Used in This Green Build
Fortunately, No Green for this Evergreen Build
You can use Mark of Divinity (MoD) as Circuit Breaker for helping Ghoul
Enemies in Crucible has lower stats compare to Main Campaign
Enemies OA in Crucible has toned down
You have Buff and Bunner in Cruci
Nemesis is toned down in Crucible
Enemies HP Pool is lower in Cruci
Kuba won’t Duplicate, Moose has no second phase (You can kill Moose in less than 10s in Cruci, in MC Moose will have 2nd phase)
Crit Damage in Cruci will be higher if compare in Main Campaign
New update Buff seems favor Cruci very much
Time Dilation, AoE, Kiting, Builds tend to success in Cruci
So I believe this humble meteor build can clear low level aspirant w/o buff and banner with ease ^^
This build probably has not shown it’s full damage potential since not all devo skills maxed out.
Well, writing non only GT Link Build Post seems harder than writing my master thesis several years ago…
English is not my native language, so please pardon me if I make mistakes…
Please check 2nd Post for different build…
