hey yo thanks for replying to all my questions have been having a lot of fun playing the build managed to get a pretty decent helm. i have some suggestions for some gear pieces. it might be cheaper to get a vitality life gain on hit watchers eye + discipline spell block since lgoh rings are very expensive and we stick to spinnerets until we can afford good lgoh rings. also we could put a large thread of hope on the left side of the tree to get the staff crit nodes and spiritual aid if we use a bone helm, along with ascendancy thats 60% inc dmg. we can also grab the sovereignty rmr nodes and amplify if we want to as well. overall very fun build. this is my pob with the thread of hope https://pastebin.com/WT1kt8JF . Im very bad at using pob so if you are free and feel like it maybe you could help me calculate the damage xd .

Damn that's absolutely brilliant! I have used Large for Spiritual Aid before but totally forgot Counterweight was in the loop too! You can even grab the spell block notable. Let me put that in the PoBs and credit you for it.

Ah! LGOH rings, I got them for ~1ex each!! Maybe drop your resist requirements? Also, that is one nutty helm, did you craft it yourself?

hello. can i do this build with 250c budget? i need clearspeed atleast


Hi mate, I'm afraid this isn't quite a budget friendly build. Closest I can do is:

Duskdawn = 195c
Inpulsa + 5L Prop = 50c
Fenumus' Spinnerets = 15c
Random item with Aspect of the Spider on it and decent stats = 20c

The cluster jewels alone are gonna cost 2 more ex even for badly rolled ones. Unless your character is already level 93+ with tons of points to spare, you're gonna have a bad time with 250c.


hello again primaeva, thank you for your answer. i'm thinking to start with this build. can't i use anything but duskdawn until i get currency?
hello !

i have some currencies ton put in this build !
I'm a bit annoyed with casting 2 different brands, can we just grab a 6link inpulsa or duskdawn and put desecrate with the cast on channeling from cyclone ?

Will be a huge QoL no ?

Hey, yea, but then you may as well play CoC VD. The brands are powerful because they scale with cast speed (200% extra cast speed) - so about 5 times a second. CWC is limited to 3 times a second.
do u think its possible to run mahuxotl machination for the overleech + shimmerons? we will have to give up on es scaling though but we could get 85 chaos res and 80 all res with divine flesh. then maybe run power of purpose or another timeless jewel for more damage. Or is the tree just more suited to staffs

The current power level afforded by staff nodes is insane - I did a weapon comparison in the new spreadsheet

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DG38nur_Yw9yDygdiV-Wg6heSodhQJjGKPMUkPafB0g/edit#gid=1159716722

And that doesn't even include Counterweight.

So in total we're getting 135 crit mult from Duskdawn and another 80 from the staff nodes. Global crit chance and mult are very precious because Spell Crit & mult doesn't affect corpse explosions.

I suppose you could build a tankier version of the build, for sure!! Let us know what you come up with. When I first launched it, it was as a "template" - the core mechanic of Arcanist Brand + Corpse Pact + VD supplies the backbone of the build. Building defenses and incorporating new ways to scale damage is definitely possible since it doesn't touch this skeleton.

Plus, we only used Overleech back then because I just loved not having to really care about life flasking. LGOH + ES OH feels very stop-gappy and if there was a new way to build a defensive layer, I'd love to hear it. I'm sort of just back to make sure the build can still do current content at reasonable damage levels and tankiness.

Hey!

Great build, have dumped a fair bit of currency into this and couldn't help but notice your insane helmet. Was it crafted with Aetheric+Faceted+Glyphic fossil spam and then ??? I'm not too familiar with crafting ever since the Harvest nerfs.

Thanks!

Heya! I bought it as is at a damn steal (12ex) but I had EXACTLY your thought process on wondering how the seller landed it. There's no way Horror Spamming could be efficient enough for him to just toss it at 12 - so yes, it's very likely its the combination you mentioned. (the +1 minion was an exalt slam on my part hoping for high life or Hybrid life.)

A crazy person would do Shuddering as well to try to land Hypothermia, which is the dream helm. However, that level of DPS seems a little unnecessary this league (given the insane cost).

If you want I can upload the build chunkstering A9 Sirus and A9 Conqs. Also if you notice in my weapon swap I have a WitchHunters Judgement which I'm actually using for some nutty burst combo. Just for fun.

The combo: https://streamable.com/b5kcum

Swap to Witchhunter's - drop two brands, which now enjoy 100% increased duration. Brandsurge. Swap back to main weapon. Brands pulse faster, sending your ramp to max (instead of old 2s wait). Do note I didn't even have time to Flammability + WoC her here!!

I've actually been toying around with that interaction ever since you mentioned it in our last conversation! It's a lot of fun but my investment (and therefore my DPS) is nowhere near where yours is yet, but it still does a very serviceable job with lots of fun buttons to press :)
