I have been playing with Invoker set until a few days ago when I hit GR70 with it. I always wanted to try LoN Bombardment but never had the luck. Recently I gathered up 10 Ancients gave it a whirl in GR65 with high hopes.
Turns out I'm way way way too squishy. Even some of those hard-hitting normal trash could oneshot me. I looked up on forums, youtube etc. and saw everyone had at least something like 150M toughness even without Caldesann's Despair, while I barely have 80M. I know my gear is far from optimal but I didn't expect it to be this bad.
this is my character. No Hellfire Amulet because I never got an Ancient with a decent passive after crafting dozens and dozens of these. I prioritized Ancients over stat rolls and BiS gear. I'm lacking Vitality in several slots, but that's pretty much the best I could afford as far as Ancients go. I have non-ancients versions of BiS items like Sun Keeper, Lidless Wall/Final Witness, St. Archew's, Illusory boots, etc, but I don't think I can miss any more Ancients than I currently do.
How am I supposed to get enough Toughness(how much, 130M? 150M?) AND get over 60% CDR at the same time? Am I just supposed to keep on farming until I get the best possible rolls on everything?
Gloves: missing Vit and Area. Also, St. Archews are massive survival increase because of the shield. The only gloves you use as this build for GRs.
Shoulders: missing Area and CDR.
Helm: missing % Life or All Res.
Belt: missing % Life.
Bracers: Need to get some Strongarms with Phys/Str/Vit/All Res ideally and drop Law for Condemn.
Weapon: missing Vit.
Shield: missing Vit and Bombard(or Physical if you had a Lidless Wall).
Boots: missing All Res(your boots are unrolled?!?!?! fix it?!)
Pants: Non ancient Hexing Pants are better than any ancient pants because its a seperate multiplier from LoN(btw current pants are unrolled you can get like 80 more str).
Chest: should have bombard instead of % Life but you had to get thorns but thats ideal when you can.
Rings: You really shouldn't have rolled Thorns on those rings. You HAVE to have over 60% cdr. Should be Str/AoE/CDR or Str/Vit/CDR first is better than second but you want either of those everything else is a worthless stat on ring.
Neck: You literally HAVE to have a Hellfire. I wouldn't bother without one. Not only is a cheat death strong. Crusaders cheat death is a dps increase. You are immune to damage for 5 sec and do 35% more damage. You play around your cheat deaths from that and Akarat's.
That is the wrong Akarat's Rune. You have to use Prophet.
Drop Consecrations for Shield Glare: Divine Verdict for 20% damage increase. Also this helps you live too you can use it on CD basically long as it is also up for Phys Ring burn.
Use All Res gems for pushing.
Outside Phys ring you should just be running around trying to take 0 damage. Also you can't play the build without 60% cdr(you really want 61% or so because of lag otherwise you can miss out on full phys ring bombard). You want to cast Iron Skin during Lightning Ring and bombard about 1 second before Phys ring > Shield Glare > Horse and rape everything. Make sure you are moving around the whole time because of Hexing Pants once you do get them.
