I’m currently working on an Elementalist version of Carrion Golems that has become popular due to the high area damage. However, another variation is the Necromancer, which I’ve read is tankier. I did some research on how the two builds and differ and wanted to write my thoughts down.
I haven’t really posted anything about Diablo 4 since it was announced at Blizzcon. Most of my time has been spent on playing Path of Exile to get my ARPG fix. However, with the direction of GGG and the recent leagues being what I consider bad jokes, I feel it’s a good time to discuss Diablo 4 and what it means to Blizzard.
Another week down and this time I’m up to 3 level 24 LCs on my main and 1 23 for my secondary account. I hit a few jackpots along the way and a few downturns but in general I would say it’s been a successful week.
Path of Exile has obviously captured my attention for the moment but I have not stopped pushing on both my accounts for Boom Beach. Right now, one account is at level 68 and the other 66. Progress has been going well but slow mostly because of the cost of upgrades at this point.
Despite having an older Vortex/Cold Snap Occultist character, I decided to start from scratch a brand new version. I had read about a Spellslinger version, which employs Creeping Frost, Frostbolt and Cold Snap into the Spellslinger portions. This intrigued me as I felt that I never gave my Occultist character a fair shake.
I was reading about Ice Crash recently and how one could buff the damage by increasing the area and using some of the new war cry effects. So I decided to pull out my old Hollow Palm Raider that I left at level 68 and push her into maps. Right now, I’m loving it.
Decided to use one of my passive respecs to give my old Hierophant a rework with Freeze Pulse Totems. I had a Soul Mantle and two Kikazaru rings as the basics to get this build started. The goal was to see how this build would feel since I did not want to start from scratch in leveling a new Hierophant.
I really enjoy the idea of an Elementalist in Path of Exile; a witch focused on manipulating the elements of the world to cause great damage. The Elemancer portion of the Elementalist ascendancy probably makes the idea of an Elementalist appealing to me in how you use your golems as buffs. So how does a Fireball hybrid caster feel in comparison?
So I had been wanting to play an Essence Drain Spellslinger Trickster recently. I really like the Spellslinger concept in that it functions similarly to a Poet’s Pen or trigger when used to support a spell skill while wielding a wand. Here’s my evaluation thus far with the build.
Okay, so I ended up playing some of the Harvest league since I have downtime and wanted to get some game time with my main rig turning into an overpriced paper weight. In short, I got bored and needed a distraction for a week or two and figured why the fuck not.
