Alright ladies and gents its time for another rogue build!! Today we are going to be using permanent stealth along with crushing flames for maximum survival and maximum damage! This is an ascending build, so don’t use it for farming.
What we are going to need:
6 crushing flames:
obviously. no explanation needed
stacks with relentless talent for extra damage when enemies health goes below 25% hp
Needed to hit max amount of cool-down reduction for stealth, 75% attack speed for ricochet and increase elemental critical cap.
helps stack more immolation damage and increases speed of immolation damage
very important, because we are using 100% dodge, this is going to be our main source of BASE damage.
5 Angelic: used to get the maximum APS out of Ricochet.
75% cooldown reduction:
when combined with stealth at 40 we can achieve perma-stealth so that we will never die.
when using stealth you will have 100% dodge. very broken
67% immolate: when using coatweapon this will get you to about 100% elemental critical
normally using crushing flames you would want more, but the extreme APS of ricochet combined with bleed ticks will be more than enough to kill elites.
4 multi attack and 4 extra attack:
Any amount of crushing blow: because we are using crushing flames
+10 all skills: good because you are going to be using all 4 skills
+5 all talents and +5 all assassin talents:
will get into this later.
we aren’t concerned about health, so this is a good base damage modifier.
Lets talk about talents
mutilate: +45% damage to extra and multi attacks. This allows us to increase the base damage of ricochet substantially. each additional bullet will add to the hit frequency of crushing flames.
Veil: increased dodge and coatweapon duration while stealthed. Very important, because you wanna have coatweapon up at all times to increase crit and elemental crit. Because we aren’t using any normal crit chance or crit damage, this will allow us to compensate for it. the added movement speed will stack with stealth.
Relentless: this is the true secret of the build. When combined with demonic, if the enemy is down to its last 10% hp, its going to take almost 175% more damage. This will make sure it won’t regenerate health faster than you can kill it.
Blindside: whirling blades is mostly used for killing lots of trash mob in pack size maps, it also procs bleed. good when you have 20 furies spawning on you at one time.
Razored: bleed is great in this build, it will trigger crushing flames damage.
20 whirling blades
20 dexterity( extremely important)
Pistol: nothing too complex. need the extra attack and all skills along with +5000 and + 100% weapon damage.
Vial of blood:
Extremely important for the +damage to elites and +resource cost reduction. We need the socket for the other +5 all skills, the hp boosts don’t matter
Disaster carapace: we need the crystal mp regen to pair with the RCR from vial of blood. since we are going to be rotating all skills, we don’t want to ever run out of mp.
Eternal Apex of Epiphany: my favorite piece of gear in the game, every slot is helpful, as is the bonus for the base damage increase
Loop of epiphany: always a good starting point to craft for when you need elemental crit damage, we need sockets for multi attack and all sets, having +10 veil helps for coatweapon and dodge.
Amulet: can really be anything, need the crystal attack speed so we only have to use 3 slots to achieve the bonus from the apex of epiphany.
adds more elemental crit, bleed, crushing blow and attack speed.
Always have coatweapon and stealth on, you’ll be suprised at how much movement speed you will gain. On pack size maps, whirlingblades will wipe almost all trash instantly, while ricochet will tear elite enemies to shreds.
im using this on map 1325, and it has had no issues taking down mythics.
