FAQ
Spoiler
Can you kill all invaders?
-i killed all of them at some point, but it really depends on the monster level/map-mods etc.

Can you play maps up to 78?

-i dont know, the highest i played so far was a 76.

Can you play all map-mods?
-i dont know, i avoid dmg-mods, blood magic, no/low-regen.

Is this build original?

-it was inspired by the DS/Spectral build from phox, but turned out quite differently i think.
Check out his steam anyway, he`s a chilled dude.

Seems like a nice and cheap cookie cutter build. Was looking for one like this. Nice break from all those crazy flicker discharge righteous fire out your frenzied arse builds out there. I'll be trying this one out.
