I disagree, I feel EB is really good for this build. Allows me to put on many defensive auras and still have mana to spam EK.



when i followed this guide, i could have 3-4 auras. Now i can have 4 easily with same ammount of life and +1.3k es
How's that possible? You must have taken some mana nodes somewhere, or invested in mana items.

At the moment I am running:
Vitality, Determination, Hatred and Discipline.

I use blood magic to cast my projectile weakness, which I plan to level to the max (for wider area coverage).

I have enduring cry for more physical resists (Up to 59% with 3 charges).
I have 30% chance to evade, 40% if I use my HP pot (adds % evasion).
I am at max elemental resists, and 30% chaos.

Having a blast with this build! Good damage, good survivability.

only thing I have had a hard time with was Oak in Merc...darn guy jumping everywhere...

otherwise I have owned pretty much.

level 61 now :)
Anyone else having a hard time picking between this EK build and Etup's EK build?

I keep finding myself switching from one to the other.
Hi All!

I respec'd my Shadow yesterday so please forgive the randomness of my gear. I'm currently lvl 51 but my Ek is barely hitting for 200dps. This is a total hodgepodge right now from what I currently have but I wanted to see how the build feels before investing in more.

My gem is underleveled but is there anything else that I should be doing? I think I'm approaching this the wrong way.

Thanks in advance for your help... here's my gear :X

This is pretty much it, you're also not using Projectile Weakness which is making matters worse, but gem levels are huge for EK when it comes to DPS.
I live by this from the OP

It is a physical spell
What this means is that EK's DPS is affected by:
- %Cast speed nodes as well as %cast speed mods on gear
- %Spell damage nodes as well as %spell damage mods on gear
- %Projectile damage nodes
- %Spell critical chance/multiplier nodes + Global Critical Chance mods on gear
- %Increased Physical damage mods on non-weapon gear
- %Increased elemental damage nodes + %cold damage/%fire damage mods on gear (slightly)
Aww, I kill all bandits at cruel, it's so bad?

What supports are better for EK

Chain, Pierce, Fork, Faster Proj, Faster Cast, Added Fire?

I use EK with blood magic, life leech and iron will, but I'm in doubt about the remaining 2.

I like fork..never tried chain as I dont have one and not going to pay for one
