Shaper of Desolation
Beacon of Ruin
Pendulum of Destruction
Mastermind of Discord
1. Bring King - Chain stuns are annoying
2. Garukhan - A little bit of extra evade after a big CHONK helps to stay alive sometimes.
I swap Garukhan for Yugul during Elder/Shaper runs.
1. Cyclone + Shock Nova + Cast on Crit + Power Charge on Crit + Increased Crit Strikes + Inc. AOE/Concentrated Effect
2. Whirling Blades + Faster Attacks + Blood Magic - Movement skill, allows to move around map + reposition yourself during boss fights
3. Ice Nova + Firestorm + Blind + CWDT - Potential blind on enemies when hit for 500~ish dmg. Could be life-saving, usually doesn't do anything
4. CWDT + Immortal Call + Vaal Grace + Inc. Duration - Can be life saving, generic + super common defensive setup. Vaal Grace for an extra defensive layer
5. Summon Ice Golem + Minion Life + Faster Casting
6. HoI + Herald of Thunder + Haste + Enlighten - HoI for the shatters in map clears
How's Shock Nova now?
- This skill got one of the bigger buffs in 3.6. I definitely recommend playing it now as it's super strong with the recent CoC buffs in 3.5.
Why Rat's Nest over Devotos?
Devotos is definitely BIS for the helm. However, I was able to get enough dexterity into my build to forgo it. This allowed me to pick up a Rat's Nest for more crit.
Why not use a 2H sword w/ Socketed Gems are supported by CoC?
You definitely can! Actually, I even recommend it! You will want an Exquisite Blade base + "Socketed Gems are supported by CoC" + "20% chance to deal double damage" + Good attack speed roll (hybrid with 20% chance to deal double damage). These bases are kind of expensive and hard to roll for. If you have the currency, you could probably pick up a fully 6 linked one on Poe.trade for 10-15 ex.
How are you sustaining?
I use Warlord's Mark ring. You can use
a Warlord's Mark curses aura and drops Haste from the aura setup if you'd prefer to not buy the ring.
