Since I haven’t played a Crusader in a while, I decided to rebirth one to give the Hybrid Bombardment build a try. This build makes use of several sets, but is actually fairly easy to gear up (especially as a 3rd character in the season).
So I finally got my Hydra build up and running. Sadly, it was far easier to gear this character than my demon hunter, but that’s understandable as my demon hunter was my starter. However, before I tried this build, I was going Legacy of Dreams just to give it a shot. It felt a little awkward since I had no idea what I was doing and made the decision to try the new wizard set instead.
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.
So after getting squashed and depressed by a failed Uber Lab run, I waited a few days for prices to come down on Voices and other gear. Ended up buying a few more Purposeful Harbingers, two 7 passive Voices, 1 Purposeful Harbinger/Heraldry and 2 Call of the Brotherhood rings (corrupted). How is this looking so far?
I saw Mathil with a Divine Ire Totems build the other day and it intrigued me as I had been pondering doing something with Divine Ire for a while. Originally, I was considering creating another Trickster, even though I already had done so in the previous league. However, I didn’t get to the endgame with that character for one reason or another and decided to commit to an extent to this build. One thing comes to mind: fastest leveling I have done this league!
With Legion slowly coming to the end, I wanted to give a review based on my experience with the league. I tried to explore what I could with the game mechanics and managed to hit a satisfactory level of end game content for this league.
Despite my initial misgivings with the Assassin CoC Cospri’s Malice Ice Nova/Frostbolt/Cyclone build, I still felt a certain emptiness driving me to give it a second chance. I knew that upon getting certain items, the potential of the build would be unlocked but the real trick was getting over that initial hump. In turn, I decided to re-create my character from the start and trying a slightly different path to getting him towards that end goal.
The Guardian ascendancy received a bit of a revamp last patch and I briefly gave it a spin. However, I didn’t push him into maps nor did I finish up getting even the Merciless Ascendancy. This league I decided out of boredom (and because I had some gear lying around handily) to give this build another shot.
A while back, I did another version of the Vaal Double Strike Gladiator build. I didn’t get very far with it as I ended up getting distracted and switching to another build before finishing it off during Incursion league. But there had been a nagging itch that needed to be scratched, especially in that I had a spare Bringer of Rain lying in my stash.
I did my general thoughts about Incursion league. In this post, I wanted to go over the various builds that I attempted. Some were failures in experimentation, others I would halt half way and a few I managed to get into maps. How did each compare at the end of the day?
