[3.14] The Nightblade | Videos #1 : Oshabi | #2 : Uber Elder/Maven | #3 : Delirium Ultimatum

Hi Exiles,

here is a new video, that features four of my characters in 4 difficult delves.
First, my Caustic Arrow Occultist, which brought me to these depths.
Then, the Lightning Tendrils Trickster, followed by the nasty Pestilent Viper Occultist.
And the Nightblade Assassin closes the waltz. This time, I'm going with Cyclone, which is much safer.

Behold :

The Unholy Four - Delve 666

None of these builds are particularly made for delving. It's more for the challenge, as we are way past what is reasonable to do with these characters. Can I reach depth 700 one day ? I don't know yet.

Hi,
Amongst the uniques, the Belt of the Deceiver is the best budget alternative.

Ah okay thanks for the response :)
Hi Exiles,

here is a second video for our lady Sanguinar Scion, a Paradoxica/Saviour variant of the Nightblade.
This time, she is fighting the Shaper, who invites her to come to...

#2 : The Edge of the Abyss

PoB : https://pastebin.com/Qcz2QH1V

As you can see, the DPS is quite respectable, but the weapons are feeling too slow for me, which makes Whirling Blades not very good. This variant was fun to experiment, but I'd prefer very fast weapons (2 APS jewelled foils in this case).

I will play some more SSF Harvest before league ends, but I must admit that crafting is not my passion. So it not going core does not bother me.

To celebrate the 500k views on this thread, here is a preview of my cha(t)racter next league :

Next week we'll reveal our September expansion! We've seen a lot of speculation about what it includes. In the spirit of this, the next expansion includes at least one of the following:

- 900 Gems
- A giant
- 13 NPCs
- A new town-like area
- A cat with a monocle and bow tie


Now that you've teased it, GGG, you can't backtrack !

Jokes aside, thx to all for your continuous interest in this build.
I have some videos coming before 3.11 ends, including a new episode of the Unholy Four and the return of a popular variant of this build, the Invisible Killer.

Thx again, Exiles ;)

Sometimes, when you want to juice a map up, it can result in a big clusterfuck on screen, and instead of having fun, you are just overwhelmed by swarms of enemies, and after losing 3 portals in a row, you just ragequit.

But sometimes, when crafting the map, you set the cursor perfectly on the difficulty scale, and the result is spot on.
This is what happened to me in two T18 Palace maps, that were not too easy, not too hard. One map had the Gloom Shrine (sextant mod), which makes enemies explode like Profane Bloom from Occultist, the other had the Purifier boss.

Crank the volume up to 11, Exiles, and enjoy the fest, this is :

#10 : Gloom Palace

Ok, I want to be this guy :



If he is not the very incarnation of the Nightblade, I don't know who is :)
In the trailer, he is using Double Strike. I may try that skill, but of course, I'll keep an eye on the new alternate quality gems and see what they've got for Blade Flurry.

As I've said the other day, I'm preparing a video where I'm using again the Invisible setup from 3.8.
Until then, it was a fun gimmick. It could be used to slow down a tough fight, by impeding enemies to attack for some seconds, leaving you time to regen etc.
Now, I hope it will be useful during this stealth infiltration league, à la Dishonored.

Basically, you use Aspect of the Cat and you use Phase Run when you are under Cat's Stealth buff effect, which reduces your aggro range by 100% = enemies cannot attack you at all.

I've featured the Invisible setup in several 3.8 videos :

1- The Invisible Killer, a first demo where I was slowing down voluntarily to show how it works.
2- The Return of the IK, 7mn of farming.
3- The Invisible Plague, a fun variant where I add Plague Bearer in the mix.
4- The Revenge of the IK, some high-level farming and bossing.

I hope it will help us on the escape route ;)

Last time, in one of the Palace maps, Zana opened me a T16 Coward's Trial, meaning the entry floor is T16 and then you have to go down to the fourth floor which is T19.
I thought that was a good mission for the Unholy Four.
Here is the video :

The Unholy Four #2 - The Cowards' Trial

- The Nightblade Assassin takes the first room.
- Then, it's the Pestilent Viper.
- Third floor is for my Lightning Tendrils Trickster, clearing here with Orb of Storms.
- And finally, the Caustic Arrow Occultist deals with the Summoner boss at t19.

Hope you like it :)

I'm currently working on a Double Strike version of the build and I'm levelling my character to level 96. I think this will be mainly featured in 3.12.
Gl & hf !

Here is the last video of the Unholy Four in 3.11.
This time, it's more about farming, in 4 maps going from T17 to T20 !

First, at t17, the Pestilent Viper hunts with Einhar.
Then, the Nightblade fights his way in an overcrowded T18 Arena.
At t19, the Caustic Arrow Occultist fights a Beyond Boss in a map with almost no ES recovery.
And finally, the Lightning Trickster ventures into a T20 Vaal Area.

The Unholy Four - #3 : The Harbingers of Disorder

Hope you like it :)

Next time, we'll come back to the Nightblade only, with new videos to prepare for 3.12.

Cheers and have fun, Exiles.
