What things do you think need the most work? What are my main priority mods on the weapon for damage? Biggest problem right now is single target.



Buy level 20 gems (Bladeblast, Contr. Destruction, Ele Focus and Fire Pen) for an easy ~40% more damage.

Check Arcance Surge and what it does - hint: it should be level 6. That way you get more spell damage and cast speed everytime you use flame dash.

Any reason Blade Fall is only lvl 1?

Next get a weapon with trigger mod and clusterjewel setup.

Then work on optimising your gear. Dmg mods on gloves, rings, amuletes etc. Take a look at the guide what's good.

I also noticed you can spec into Bloodless instead of 2 5% life nodes - 3% more life :D




looking at your gear daflipp, is a very good indicator for some solid good early league gear with very low investment that can take you very far. so for tyler he should check it out. however you waist one point in str between maruder and templar :D

How did I miss that? lol

Ty :)
Like the playstyle of the build.

But, do anyone face animation twitching when casting Bladefall?
The problem is the character cast animation only - overall fps keeps totally stable.
I noticed that the problem occurs only if unleash is used. Spell echo or faster casting seems don't cause the problem. Also if you spam Bladefall when unleash has 0 seals - animation if also fine.

How much boss dps / map clear I would lose if I replace unleash with echo/faster casting?

your a big boy, make a math equasion
Anyone doing this build having mana / dps issues vs longer fights? Ie wave 20 kosis and Sirus A8. I know i'm not min maxed yet but it's pretty rough in these when you need to sustain. Otherwise mapping is good.

I had the same problem when i was undergeared, ran out of mana flask and had to kite for mana to regen and finish sirus 8, at that time i was using wrath(whatcher eye with extra phy as fire dmg/hoa/hop, i dropped wrath and the w/e, set up skitterbot with clarity lv7 and using a intuitive leap at mage jewel socket to pick up the mana reg node plus the shield block one. That solved my mama issue. Luckly i got an aw multistrike gem and invested in the aw aoegem, aw spell cascade and i just eun trough maps, i havent try 100%deli (did 80% before gems so i think im able to do it) my gear is still crap, the chest is meme i think i got the worst possible rolls there sadly but im surprised how good is this build. Aw sirus 8 die in seconds now(if i manage to proc everything in the 100% extra fire dmg window). Id say keep investing on it, theres a point where the damage is just way too good and bosses just melt.
hello,
im pretty much done with league starter, i made about 12ex so far, 600c and 7ex right now, and sitting on about 200 stacked decks i could sell, i want to get into this build, i tried a BF/BB build in deli league and it was a lot of fun, it was not chieftain though, but this looks really good and tanky, I am wondering about a few things; 1, is 12ex budget good to make this build go far? 2, how does glancing blows feel after the huge nerf, my league starter is CI and has 9k ES with 69/58 block without glancing blows, and it feels really good, when i was 39/38 block and used glancing blows for 75/75 it felt really bad, but that was with CI, so was wondering is it better to go glancing blows with this build or try to get as high %/% block as i can without it? and 3, how is leveling the build with currency? like since i have like enough to buy twink gear without hurting just seeing what it would be like to level.
thanks in advance for any answers/suggestions
hello again,
one more question, how hard is getting the gear for this build now? all of your descriptions for crafting your gear is harvest crafting, should we skip most of that entirely now? I heard its a real pain in the ass/expensive as hell to get chaos resists on your gear
thanks

It is all indeed much more difficult to craft endgame gear without harvest, however the build is very solid without the tempered flesh which might even not be worth after the recent nerfs/difficulty of getting it to the maximum.

Regarding your previous question about block, if you can get recover life on block shield then go for glancing blows otherwise don't, that's my take after trying both for few days.

Gearing to get this build started is dirt cheap, you can get half decent rares for almost nothing and we don't need much ele resists since we get so much from our tree/ascendancy, just get your cast speed so it doesn't feel like a slugfest going trough the maps.
Hi guys! First time trying blade blast and i'm loving it.. just did sirus 5 and it was a breeze.. im really enjoying the tankiness of this build, but right now I feel that im lacking damage.. I know Im missin the shaper helmet and my weapon and jewellery are kinda garbage but I'm wondering what should I get next.. Maybe get a better a weapon first? thanks!
