[3.10] For Scion - One Punch Girl (Crit. Infernal Blow / Cyclone w/ Facebreaker + Rigwald's Curse)


Spoiler

This is a crit based 3-in-1 build using Infernal Blow + Shield Charge + Cyclone.

"
I have been playing with Rigwald's Curse + Facebreaker + Lycosidae for over 2 months using various skills: Tectonic Slam, Ancestral Warchief Totems and Infernal Blow.

This build will be based on Infernal Blow mainly because of the upcoming changes to the skill:

3.3 Infernal Blow Changes
Infernal Blow will keep its existing mechanic, putting a debuff on enemies that causes them to explode when killed. We want to keep the skill's interaction with the Melee Splash Support, to make large pack of monsters explode as their cascading death explosions spread to those around them.

The main target (and any targets hit by your Ancestral Call Support) now get an extra debuff when hit that can stack up to 6 times. When either a target with this debuff dies, the debuff's short duration expires, or 6 stacks are reached, the debuff explodes, dealing a large portion of weapon damage in an area.

This makes the skill deal significantly more damage on a single target, gives it strong area damage when used with Ancestral Call when multiple targets build up stacks, or lets you rapidly build up stacks with the Multistrike support. You can hit one enemy while splashing the explode effect and walking away, letting it explode itself and then those around it, or focus your damage on a single foe for maximum impact.

The skill also has new debuff effects to show the infernal fires building up inside enemies, a new fiery explosion for when the damage effect is released and an improved corpse explosion.

"
At this point, I have managed to clear red elder in a T14 map (see screenshots) with 1 death and I would say the result look very promising for 3.3.

3 main skills are used in the build, namely: Infernal Blow (mapping and single target) + Shield Charge (mobility) + Cyclone (re-positioning + mapping).

Thanks mate :) as a newbie to this game i just want to see how the playstyle is, so i can see if that build is fitting my playstyle.
Can you maybe explain the choice of Lightning Golem?
Is there other possibillities?

I went for attack speed. Thus, Lightning Golem.

You can go for Ice Golem for accuracy and crit chance. But you will only benefit from the crit chance since you have 100% chance to hit.
Thanks for the build!

I love Infernal Blow, but I'm a beginner and will mostly play SSF.

Can this build work without the required items, using a weapon? (Obviously losing the "punch" concept...) What recommendations do you have for weapons / equipment to use whilst leveling, before obtaining the required items?
