Forum Index Community Showcase Uniting Wraeclast - Duo Builds

History

Thank you this endeavor. My wife and I (Weretigress, who posted a few days ago) just finished Act 10 with this pair and we had a blast! We really look forward to the other builds you've hinted at.

These build ideas are awesome. I don't get a ton of enjoyment playing solo, but at the same time playing duo is a pain in the ass if the builds don't mesh.

These are some good ideas. Here's one I ran with my buddy last league in BHC, worked out pretty well.

1st character was an Occultist Autobomber, non-crit and ES + CI based (had about 6.9k ES) with 100k Herald of Ice and Herald of Thunder DPS. 80% freeze chance and freeze proloferation. It also wore Impresence for a free Frostbite.

2nd build was a Scion (Occultist & Inquisitor) and ran Elemental Weakness and also Enfeeble. 2 curses on enemies, with a 3rd from the Occultist above netted a 24% damage boost for the Autobomber + Malediction, as well as a basically constant source of 30% ES regen from Occultist. The Scion focuses heavy into single Target DPS with Barrage for bosses and just providing curses during the map run process.

Nothing really clears faster than an Autobomber, but their downfall is single target. The Barrage Scion sets that straight with nearly 900k Barrage DPS on bosses.

I liked it a lot, may try it again this upcoming race.

Hey guys, did you test any charge generator + charge spender duo builds? I'm wondering if it's possible or fun/worth it

Like a support build with some auras generating charges and a discharger using them

cool builds btw, great stuff

The Boss Farmers - Low-life Whispering Ice Guardian / Low-life Discharge Inquisitor is going to be one of those. Planning to run it in 3.3. It uses the Guardian charge generation + sharing with Romira's and Icestorm to generate a ton of charges for the Discharger.

Also I want to plan out a double discharge (cospri/mjolner/coc) duo at some point too as I think it would be pretty awesome (except 0 FPS!).


@Graiseperiod - That's a pretty good idea. We've toyed with the idea of a speed clearer + boss killer but haven't spent too much time looking into options for that yet. Might steal some of your ideas there in the future! Personally I would run something other than Barrage for single target. With a lot of currency it scales well but there are other skills (molten strike for one) that have a lot higher single target DPS. That said the "best" isn't always the funnest or what you want to play and having fun is way more important!

Yea, I only picked Barrage because you can do a 90% conversion to cold (all the cold pen is good with Ice-based autobomber)

With 3.3 coming up, a Stormfire Ignite Autobomber combined with a pure fire molten striker would be pretty sick... especially with all the ignite buffs for elementalist.

I really look for this kind of cooperation when I play with a friend. Thank you for building those suggestions !

I'll be playing the Flashback League with a friend who's set on going Righteous Fire. What comes to mind to go with that ?

First things I've looked at are:

-Dyadus in some build that would chill everything that I can't think of.

or

-Flame Surge low range caster. Without having to worry about the ignite; the damage might be really high against small groups. On the other hand the AoE from RF is alreay quite small...



What does the OP and fellow coop players think of this ?

Funny you mention RF, EvilTony mentioned to me yesterday he wants to come up with some sort of RF combo. There's a lot of different routes you can go based on which playstyle you like. The first one that came to mind that seemed pretty good was a RF Elementalist with EE, probably want to work Scorching Ray in there either self cast or on a totem as well. Then a RF + Blade Vortex 100% fire conversion Chieftain. Throwing Dyadus on Animate Guardians with a Minion Life gem would be really strong to go along with that. RF is a really flexible skill and has a lot of things you can abuse like EE/SR/Dyadus etc.

This looks Awesome. Do you expect a lot of changes in the build into the Incursion league?
