-> GRIM TOOLS BUILD LINK <-
Relic : Ignaffar’s Combustion
Key Item. Best with Horn of Gandarr completion bonus. Relic also gives a decent -10% Elem Res.
Rings : Mythical Reign of Ice and Fire (craftable) - Both with Runebound Topaz and Sylvarria’s Essence.
Gives %crit dmg, good %dmg bonus, OA, %total speed, +2 AH and a very good granted skill. Can also have %armor on it if crafted at Angrim, or more %crit if they are crafted at Gaius in Mamlouth Outskirts.
Feel free to test with any other rings you want, but from what I have played so far 2 Reign rings works best.
Medal : Mythical Sigil of the Bear King - With Attuned Lodestone or Tainted Heart.
Key Item. Gives DA, +3 IT, +2 RF and +15% crit dmg and +150% internal trauma dmg to FW.
The granted skill is very good, but very good for other builds focusing on phys, but it’s still there, decent for this build, with 20% main hand dmg, 25% chance to stun for 2s and the phys and internal trauma dmg it does.
Weapon : Mythical Arcanor, Blade of the Luminari - With Seal of Blades and Potent Malmouth’s Soul.
Everything the blade offers is perfect for the build. The build is actually made around it starting with it.
100% phys to elem convert + base elem dmg to FW, and -10%elem res to Inq Seal with +15s duration to it. Very good.
Helm : Mythical Wyrmbone Mask (craftable) - With Prismatic Diamond and Coven Black Ash.
Also a key item in build, giving very dmg good bonus to Horn of Gandarr and to FW also 100% phys to light convert to FW. Very good health bonus. Can have %armor if crafted at Angrim or %crit if you craft it at Gaius.
Gloves : Mythical Handguards of Justice - With Restless Remains and Coven Black Ash.
Key Item. Very good bonus to blitz skill, but for this it’s build used just for fast movement. Gives good health bonus, OA, attack and cast speed, +2 FW, base dmg to FW and another 100% fire to phys convert to FW, and ofc set bonus. Even without the set, these gloves are 100% needed for any forcwave build if not phys.
Belt : Mythical Scales of Beronath - With Ugdenbog Leather and Venomguard Powder
Very good belt for build. Vit Res from it not needed, so any belt can be used, but this one gives +1 Inq skills, %armor, %elem dmg, %crit, and +2 IS. Haven’t really tested with any other, had it from before I reached 94, and been using it since I could use it.
Pants : Tempest Solael-Sect Legguards of Kings - With Ugdenbog Leather and Venomguard Powder.
Pants drop from Guardian of Solael in the The Hidden Path quest. Fastest way to farm them is with a blademaster, using blitz, shadow strike, and chaos strike from Riftstone compo.
Until you get the specific roll for pants you can use Mythical Mageguard Legguards, which are also good, res remain almost the same, gives a good granted skill, +2 IS, +2 AE and %phys res, but you lose %ADCTH, the very good granted skill, health, %energy, DA and %OA.
Boots : Tempest Stoneplate Greaves of Kings (craftable) - with Ugdenbog Leather and Coven Black Ash.
It will take some time until you get them, if you don’t already have them, no advice here, just press that button and craft. Craft them and Angrim for %armor or at Gaius for % crit, it’s your choice.
Until you find the roll for boots, you can use Mythical Earthshatter Treads with +2FW, or Mythical Spellsage Boots with +2 AoC.
I crafted helm, rings and boots at gaius all for %crit on them, and it seems to work very good in main campaign, and crucible up to 150, but more armor never hurts in crucible, and overall it’s your choice where u craft them.
Word of Renewal always on - all max res.
Always spawn an Inq Seal before fight, stay on it.
Very important, after Seal, use War cry and Horn of Gandarr in that order, 1st War Cry and 2nd Horn, cause Arcane Bomb on War Cry reduces light res on enemies, and Horn has more light dmg from the Luminari Blade skill modifier, and Elemental Storm, who also has dmg, has a lower duration then Arcane Bomb, and it’s best if it’s after it.
Combo works very nice with hoards with very good dmg and RR at the same time.
After this imediatly cast Arcane Devastation, from Luminari Blade, that will spawn at least 3 Elemental Seekers from Blind Sage.
Now u start attacking with Forcwave, during which u spawn more Seals for enemies to stand on for RR, and u keep spawning Elemental Devastation.
Blitz is just for fast movement.
Gameplay is very easy, and u get used to it very fast. Been playing it for a lot of time now since I finished my char to lvl 100 and it’s very fun to play also. You can facetank mostly anything with exceptions ofc.
You mostly massacre almost everything in Main Campaign on Ulti diff, and even in Crucible up to 150 on Glad diff.
Haven’t tested Crucible 150 to 170 yet, and I’m pretty sure it’s not viable, but will test soon maybe with some changes in skills/devos.
Haven’t tested on Ravager ofc, no chance, not tested on Avatar.
Killed Clone of John, and every nemesis, with mostly np, except Grava ofc.
