[3.6] Shadow Builds List



Hello, I am Deathbeam and from now I will be maintaining Shadow build list previously maintained by haamoo. I will be keeping some sections from original list without changes because they were well written and easy to understand. I also want to thanks to haamoo and previous Shadow build list maintainers for maintaining this list over the years.

Build lists for other classes

Witch Builds List by StormHavoc
Marauder Builds List by StormHavoc
Duelist Builds List by StormHavoc
Ranger Builds List by Amongalen
Scion Builds List by Tzikk
Templar Builds List by Lilyliciously

What is needed to be featured and kept in this list?

- Your guide should contain more than just your gear and a skill tree. This means there should be also some explanation of your build, skill choices and gear choices (see Helpful links section)
- If possible a leveling and progression section would appreciated (for our beginners)
- Pure theory crafted builds will not be added, builds should have at least made it well into maps. Exception to this rule is new league builds, after detailed review
- Builds with "clickbait" titles will not be added, for example "55 Bajillion deeps, UE AFK"
- Your build should be updated, inactive builds will be eventually removed
- To submit your guide, post a link in the thread or PM me with format that is used in this list (see Legend section) and with some TLDR of your build

Legend

Each field in legend has range of (low, medium, high, very high).

Title: Title is in format of Main skill: <link-to-build-with-build-name>
Damage: Indicates how much DPS this build has relative to other builds for this class. Currently the values are < 500k Very Low, 500k-1m Low, 1-2M Medium, 2-3M High, >3M Very High
Survivability: This field includes both mapping and single target sustain, combined defenses and defensive tools. Again, this is relative to other builds for this class.
Mobility: This fields includes movement speed, tools to manually dodge incoming attacks, overcome gaps but also time you have to dodge between attacks
Clear speed: Indicates how fast is this build when clearing maps. This do not includes killing the final map boss, just the time spent from entering map and clearing all it's mobs. Usually builds with high mobility also have high clear speed, but this is not always true, that is why this field is separate.

There are 2 Divine Ire builds in the main post. EK is not there because of lack of guides on forums.

I just didn't see it (divine ire), and (on ek) alot of the builds i'd assume have minimal guide info because the older builds tell you everything you need to know, minus the newer stuff which is written into the newer guides, but yeah i get it, so thats why theirs alot of skills that are missing, i know the update has something to do with some of them disappearing to but just figured i'd ask thanks.
