Looking at the leaderboard it seems raekor is the best. But could it be bacause people like that playstyle more than Migh of the earth?
Or is it plain better? Personally i hate raekor playstyle and currently enjoying the Leap set. But i would like to end up on the leaderboard end of the season. Do you think its possible with leap set? Or must i equip the dreadful raekor at some point?
Raekors just does so much more damage than EQ esp once you get every single piece of the build thats needed.
Unless they make adjustments to EQ build the Raekor build will always be at the top.... More dmg, more survivablity and faster
Honestly wouldn't say survivability here.
Raekors is the build for the push on the ladder but the hard part about Raekors is also the fact you have to get the right rift, right pylons and right guardian. Don't get that you might as well just leave.
I played full Raekors to get my 55solo clear. It was so glass cannon and my fingers were getting rekt from all the clicking. It wasn't a fun build for me. I like EQ because its fun, just jumping around here and there.
Yeah sadly Reakor is so glass cannon in higher Grifts its not "that" fun to play. It is fast and enjoyable for t10/bountys but for grifting/gem leveling i switch to EQ build. I just cant bother with grift fishing to make it work.
Currently the leaderboard is about 800-900 people log jammed around GR 72-76 running a pretty much maxed out EQ, and then the top 100 or so are the ones using raekors and phishing for the perfect rift to clear 80-86's.
raekor can definitely push further but you need a lot of luck, a lot of patience and a lot of fishing to make it work. IMO EQ is a lot more fun.
so to answer your question, yes you can leaderboard with EQ, but your not gonna break the top 100 with it.
also the majority of the people who are geared enough to be the top actually run globe barbs in 4 mans to power level and gear, and then switch to raekors for solo play.
Raekor is good, but i asked a top player he said he dont even bother with most elites just killing trash mobs is where its most effective at.. i think its sad i hate the play style of it, shame ww or earth cant compete much..
