I searched in this forum for a decent defiler build and yea… found nothing. so i did it myself. The Idea is to convert nearly all fire damage to aether, bescause there is nearly no synergie between demo and necro.
The only way i found to put these two classes together is the “mythical Dreadfire”. If nice rolled it converts nearly 50% of your fire damage to aether damage. Dual Wield (you will need the direwolf crest for it) meens nearly 100%. So we go for the full fire strike and some passives in the demolition tree. on necro side we go for the reaping strike to heal ourself + some passives and the siphon souls (converted to aether).
The other gear pieces are just easy. Get some aether damage plus and some survival stuff like resists or life leech.
If you like the build, i will write a guide maybe. but its nearly impossible to level this from lvl 1 because you need several important high lvl items to use this. maybe the best way is to skill overpowered skeletons on early levels and reskill later.
Much of this is just based on theorycrafting. till now i didnt try the super bosses. big groups of elite are easy to face tank and kill in 2-3 seconds so it could work. atleast u will easy finish the game on ultimate with it.
Thank you for reading and NO! english is not my mother tongue. i am really sorry for that.
