Build Details

How It Works
Summary

This build deals loads of damage with Sever and DOTs, and it uses minions to deal generate resources.

Using our minions to generate resources and our Sever to deal loads of damage, this build is performing quite well. While this build lacks the multipliers required to make it an S tier build, it still deals enough damage to clear all of the content in the game.

The build has some weirdness with its stat priorities as a lot of its damage is coming from Sever and a lot of it is coming from the various DOTs this build generates. We try to take as many things that buff both types of damage as possible, but its likely that as we get to play and test this build it will start to prioritize either the DOTs or the Sever itself.

In-Depth Explanation

Resource Generation

Feed the Coven gives our minions the ability to have a chance to generate essence for us each time they attack, and Bloodless Scream gives us essence generation whenever our shadow skills deal damage to a frozen enemy. With these two things combine, we have plenty of resource generation to spam Sever.

Gameplay Loop
  1. Keep up all your minions and Skeletal Priest
  2. Use Bone Storm
  3. Use Reap to get a corpse, and then cast Corpse Tendrils on the corpse
  4. Spam Sever, and keep up Bone Storm and Corpse Tendrils
