I wanted to share with you guys the build that emerged while I was trying to complete the crucible achievements. I leveled this guy up in build 30 and 31. In the latest patch, I changed his gearing a little bit for more tankiness to be able to tackle higher crucible difficulties.
The gameplay of this here may not appeal to everyone, but it is very safe and effective. You quickly apply poison DoTs on the enemys, and run away. Rinse and repeat until everyone is dead.
My priority was to max all resistances, including CC resistances. While I still struggle with Trap resist, everything else seems to be ok.
[184.108.40.206 HF1] Crucible on challenger difficulty, waves 121 - 150.
[220.127.116.11 HF1] Bastion of Chaos + Shar’Zul.
[18.104.22.168 HF1] Fabius.
[22.214.171.124 HF1] Mad Queen.
[126.96.36.199 HF1] The Sentinel.
I have +1 to All skills from Helm and +1 to Occultist from Relic. Main goal is to boost Dreeg’s Evil Eye and Nidalla’s Justifiable Ends to the maximum.
Acid spray -> Dreeg’s Evil Eye
Scorpion Sting -> Shadow Strike
Tainted Eruption -> Dreeg’s Infinite Gaze (skill from Mark of Dreeg component)
Wayward Soul -> Veil of Shadow
Giant’s Blood -> Possession
Keep Blood of Dreeg and Pneumatic Burst buffs up, while saving them for an emergency heal.
Curse of Frailty should be cast before applying DoTs, otherwise it doesn’t work. Also use it to slow groups of enemies.
Use Shadow Strike as gap closer and escape tool as well as one of the main damage dealers.
Dreeg’s Afflicted Spines (from relic), Dreeg’s Infinite Gaze and Dreeg’s Evil Eye to apply as many different sources of poison as possible.
For single targets, the usual rotation is:
- Curse of Frailty
- Shadow Strike
- Dreeg’s Evil Eye (2 and 3 can be swapped)
- Dreeg’s Infinite Gaze
- Dreeg’s Afflicted Spines
- run away until you see that DoT tick are getting smaller
- repeat from step 1 until monster is dead
