2.2 Wings of Entropy / Molten Strike

*I do not plan to update this guide if anything drastic changes. Hopefully, someone else will make a solid molten strike guide for yall. Feel free to plagiarize.*

Disclaimer on Wings of Entropy
Spoiler

Wings of Entropy is not actually required. Molten Strike is a very flexible skill. If you choose to use a different weapon then you should make alterations to the passive tree.

That said, the benefits of Wings of Entropy: (basically, jack-of-all-trades, master of none)

Cheap unique
Respectable damage
6 link

Spoiler


Just stuff I had available at the time. Plenty of room for optional uniques. Meginords = over 100 life and over 35% increased physical damage.

In order 4 link to 6 link.


A little extra damage. Consistent endurance charges. 5 or 6 link optional.


Movement skill. Can one shot common monsters with damage supports.


Utility Gems
