Can you link your gear as well so I can see what you have to work with?


Sure. As below. It's barely optimal, and I don't trade much because of how troublesome it is to trade (especially for lower level stuff; been trying to buy a good cutlass but nobody seems to be online).

Spoiler


At this point (obvious, I know ;)) you would need to either get better gear (for increased DPS), or sacrifice some blocking and such for more DPS...

You could drop the 3 nodes near (and including) Sentinel and then opt for Berserking for a (somewhat) minor change to get 18% more attack speed.... or take the 3 Phalanx nodes (would need to do the math to see which gave you more dps). If you could handle the loss of resistances, you could lose the 9 nodes going up to get Phalanx and then take the 3 nodes of Water Dancing, 3 nodes of Testudo, and 3 others...

I've been watching and using your videos for map boss ID's for months now, thanks for all of the effort and time you put in to create these to share.

I had a Kaom's Heart drop for me a couple of days ago in a map, and now have been using this guide for a new Ambush build.
Do you think that it is still a good enough chest to use in a build with these passives, and basic pieces?
I realize it looses out on life right off of the bat, but with the added fire damage thought it could still be a contender with some changes to the health vs damage passives. I see where you mentioned you were considering experimenting with this chest piece, and I'll be honest I did not read through all 13 pages of this yet so if you covered this already in this post just say so and I'll find it.


Yes, you could use the 500 HP one and drop from 9000 HP to 7500 (and then see in the vids how often I get down to 1500 to know when you would have died).. of course, there have been multiple patches, but it is basically similar.

Mort, I have to ask you a question as I have this build almost the same except I haven't been able to get the mana leech on gear yet, so will have to use reave with blood magic.

Can you tell me what your damage is if you were to replace one of your reave supports, I am just curious before I change some things around and see if its even worth it.

Thanks much for everything <3


Losing multistrike would leave you with about 30% to 33% less dps if my math is right. There are pros and cons with MS. Losing MPD would be a few % more dps loss, but would allow you to retain the pros/cons of MS. Losing Concentrated Effect would be about a 40% dps loss.

Possible? Yes. Smart and safe to? No.

It would be possible to beat her and facetank her, but I am guessing it would be multiple deaths (or failed attempts) per success. I've only tried her once though, so would need many more data points to have a better picture.

I went with a guidlie who got the fragments and let me go with her. We got her down 25% to the quad phase, and then we both died. I let her use up the last portals attempting it. It is doable, but it is nasty.

I always like to facetank stuff the first time I try it to see the damage potential... then I modify strats if needed... But, only had one attempt :)

Great guide!!

Only downside I have i am running with a koam's heart 500.
I have been thinking isn't it better to go for a hybrid armor/es chest then?

I and I am using a 1h axe so you can't use cleave.
Is dubble strike the skill I need to use for single target?

Maybe infernal blow as aoe
Also thinking about ST to use that as AOE skill

Hope you have some idea's
