  • Wyrdward

Its a basic SC build with some changes to abuse Wyrdward+Parthan protection.

Eye of Peshok: We need one with 15 Max Spirit increase, since we need max Spirit. Dex+Vit+Crit+Socket(Amethist) as usual.

The gear: We need to boost Cold resist and Poison resist (since we can dodge most of lightning/fire affixes) with Cold, Poison or Arcane resists for our necks, gloves, rings and chest. You can swap Fulminator for FD. String of Ears boost your toughness, but you're dodgin most of dmg (51%, more then 70 with blinding speed instead of radiance). Thundergods helps to procs Wyrdward, and increase your lightning dmg.

Jewelry: FnR mandatory as always, with Poison/Arcane/Cold resist as secondarie. We need Exalted soul for HF amulet, or Near Death. Eye of Etlitch is a good option to boost our defenses against fire chains and electrified, can drop with Melee dmg reduction too, good option. You can swap FnR+Wyrdward for CoE+Unity+Wyrdward for extra survivability.

Gems: Swap Bane of the Stricken for Bane of the Powerfull/Pain Enhancer for Non-Season/Non-rift farm.

Build Guide

Hello guys! I'm here to share this build that i'm trying to improve!

It is based on the protection provided by Parthan Defenders due to stunned mobs around you. It is simple but tricky, since there's a chance of dying before starting to enjoy the protection of Parthan, but once the charges are spreaded and the mobs are around you, you are protected.

Fulminator helps procs Wyrdward, along with the charges.

Initially you should group the mobs, relying on its high dodge chance and the right kind of mob (for high rifts you need to fish a little, but with the right kind of mob its gg) to spread the debuffs, Fulminator begin to act together with static charge activating wyrdward and so Parthan, then your thoughness goes through the roof!

Hope you enjoy and help me with this.

I think theres already something like this build, if so, sry!
