This character has 1.5k life,2.5k shields, 58% block chance, and focuses on using life leech to restore shields through ghost reaver, I also use enduring cry to fortify my armor. (4 charge max)
the build shines in most fights, only falling victim to freeze or chaos damage, it has a very tough to break tank, and enough drain to outpace most map bosses and large packs, with enough control to mitigate the damage.
The primary drain skill is actually shock nova, the support gems for it are elemental proliferation, life leech, and faster casting. the EP allows me to spread shock to maximum stacks over a large pack in only a few casts, greatly improving the drain amount and damage.(i focus on stacking chance on hit to shock skills instead of crit. I feel it gives me
this curse is used to assist my tank, I found it greatly increases my survivabiliy.
This is actually what I use to kill bosses and mobs inside of my shock nova. I have it linked to concentrated effect and faster casting. This skill packs an amazing punch, and with ignite it has been known to one shot bosses. (later i would like to link my quality 15% molten shell with chance to ignite on top of CE, giving it a major on hit burn chance.)
I mainly use this skill for the added block chance, although the extra damage is nice. both this skill and Clarity are linked to reduced mana cost.
everyone needs mana!
In cruel i picked up the +1 to endurance charges. This skill has proved priceless for strengthening my tank and forcing mobs to detonate my molten shell.
This skill is linked to LMP,faster casting, and life leech. I use this skill 1v1 with bosses or for smaller groups of mobs, it basically fills in the shield life steal when the shock nova range isn't quite right.
Thanks for taking a look at my build, and if anyone has any questions feel free to ask here or in game.
