Hi just want to ask if there is any use or remake of condemn build in 2.4? I did rly like that build so if any1 did tried it in ptr leave some comment plz. I don't have much time to do ptr my self.. Thnx
I'm in the process of building a different take on an Invoker based build, specifically one that utilizes the Hack affix and Heavenly Strength to use two handed weapon, which can (in turn) make Falling Sword, Consecration, Phalanx (Bowman), and Bombardment usable. What I like about the the skills selection is that it allows me to stick with Crush for my primary skill, and everything sort of makes that work with all of the other stuff. [Edit: Consecration will be moving to the thorns run next play session, probably better than the current one]
I've put the build through it's paces, and I still like the Slash/Zeal interaction that I started with o so long ago, but many of the above skills have been replaced with Steed Charge/Endurance (had to keep up with mages and barbs that like to tele and leap, but still greatly prefer Falling Sword/), Iron Skin/Reflective Skin, and Akarat's Champion/Hasteful have replaced Falling Sword, Consecration, and Phalanx.
It's been working rather well, as Torment 4 solo is very doable, and a buddy and I are working our way through the torment levels, as we're at Torment 5 for the moment only because my buddy's a bit to squishy (silly barbs >.> ). While nothing to really write home about, I basically hit 70 while holding my own in Torment 4, then moved to Torment 5 shortly thereafter, so the build does work, even though it's not that optimized just yet.
I'm able to solo Torment IX, and as I just pulled Aquila Cuirass and cube'd it prior to logging last night, I'm expect that I should be able to take Torment X easily. I haven't put that much attention into Greater Rifts (as my focus has been on acquiring the Ring of Royal Grandeur), but I'm expecting to do well there based on what I have seen in the Torment bounties.
Any optimization tips, or other build suggestions, is greatly appreciated =)
I never really played much D3, but since S5 my girlfriend and I have been going pretty crazy and enjoying it a lot. Now as a relatively new player I have loads of questions regarding how a lot of things work, but I can't really find the answers to them anywhere (in a clearly written/explained way).
Please critique me and if possible guide me a bit through the questions I have to get a better understanding to how builds, gearing, RNG and classes work.
Currently I'm running this build: Invoker Punish and I have all of the pieces of the set and the "recommended" ones (in case there's more of them, in my stash).
What I want to know is, if my enchanting, gearing currently looks "okay" on the gear I'm wearing. I know there's still lots of room for improvement on items which don't have all of the proper stats as shown in the "guide", or did I make any big mistakes which I should change ?
Is it "mandatory" to have Thorns on all items as a "secondary"' stats for them to be "bis" ? Since on the recommended stats in the guide there's not always shown "thorns" as an affix.
edit: Armory currently shows my Weapon as one without a gem-slot, which I changed with a Ram's Gift for an extra 38k Thorns.
I also started working towards the LoN Bombardement build and have all the pieces (non Ancient) which the guide states. I've read that it's mandatory to have all pieces Ancient due to how the 2 set works (incr damage per ancient item equipped). I only have a perfectly rolled Headpiece at the moment, so my quess is to wait until I have all pieces Ancient ?
At what point should I start switching Builds -> From Invoker to LoNBomb ?
My Stash is currently full of items of both sets, mainly since sometimes I don't know whether an item is better or not.
How I'm obtaining gear currently is mainly running speed TX's for Keys, then run GR65's (highest I've attempted atm) for gear. The Blood Shards I get I use them to gamble on items for the LoNBomb build, since I personally think that's where I'm lacking most gear. With my Death Breath's and other items I use the Cube to upgrade them to Legendary to hope for a properly rolled item. Should I instead just keep rerolling with the Cube on the Legendary pieces I have instead of trying the method to upgrade a Rare -> Legendary since I already have the item ?
TL;DR: How does my gear currently looks like, what's the "best" way to gamble for better pieces, and when to switch to a different build for higher GR's ?
Thanks for reading and I hope I can get some valuable information which could help me charge in the right direction ^^.
I'm here because i actually need some help. I'm playing a LoN bombardment crusader. I'm actually blocked at greater rift 69. But literally blocked. take ages to kill elites or regular enemies, and if it's not taking ages, I die fast, even under prophet, iron skin etc. (like really fast)....
I'm already aware that I don't have an optimal hellfire amulet ( bad passive) and I don't have the two ring in ancient. But it can't be the only reason right ? it's actually ok in Grift 66, 67, 68 but impossible in 69.
On top of that my weapon and shield might be improve by better ones.
So is just this plus that plus this who make it impossible ( amulet + rings + bad roll on gear pieces) , or Am i missing something ?
Could you please give me some advices on what should I do first or aim first.
If not, watch out that all your timings are correct.
You pop Iron Skin when there is like 1.5s left in the Lightning CoE phase, you move a bit and cast Bombardment (if you stand still, cast Iron skin and Bombardment you actually get a loss in damage due to Hexxing pants) - that way the main damage of Bombs will be in physical phase. So if Iron Skin is up and you cast Bombardment, Bombardment is buffed for it's whole phase. But the CoE physical buff is dynamic.
If you first cast Bombardment and then pop Iron Skin, the bombs will not get buffed!
I'm far from perfect with my gear and timings, but cleared a GR76 and GR77 after that on first try (with no Hexxing pants or some other well rolled items). I had like your paragon at that time.
Here the GR76 clear, I didn't upload the 77 one. At the moment I do upgrades on gems for augmenting, so I will attack GR80+ afterwards.
Currently doing ok with sub optimal gearin, not full set, no ancients etc. But would like some advice on how, if possible to improve it. All thanks go to teaiwen for makeing the build. I am just useing it for my personal bash fest.
hello everyone i was brain storming last few days about builds,items that aren't used as much or at all and came up with an idea for set items
so i came up with this Instead having drakon Lessons and a piro marrella shield what about making them into a set items
making set items bracer,shield and 1 handed sword would balance it from not using a 2 handed weapon and also allowing it to do dmg as well
i also made the set item skills having 2 parts on (90%or higher wrath adding 50% dmg reduction) and the 3 part The DMG of your shield bash is increased by 1.5%for each point of wrath you depleted and all dmg is increased by % Wrath is Reg by 60 per second
so i made the set or brain stormed on it at high wrath u gained DMG reduction and low wrath you do More Dmg having full wrath you do less dmg but gain dmg reduction
