History

Hi there,

Randomly saw your build, and wanted to test it... i had a few spare exalt for zerphy but suddently a wild timeworn key and guess what it gave me !

Zerphi's Last Breath

    you may be spared from its wrath."

    So i've spent my money for other part of the stuff ! :D

    I already had a good 6L inpulsa and didn't know what to use or to buy (at decent price) so i gave it a try : the damage are already over the top so the aoe explosions are not that efficient like on other build, but shock immunity, shock effect, global damage boost are good to take. ^^ (the shimmerons add lightning damage so no problem with killing shocked mobs even with just the unearths projectiles) edit : just notice the "YOU have shocked", so i'm wrong i was probably shocking when i had a shock nova in a cwdt early on.
    I was wondering about a very big armour but colors would be long to get and the final reduction don't seems to be that good... friend talked about a classic lightning coil for the conversion physical damage taken to lightning, but i'd have to manage with lightning resist... so for now i stick with inpulsa. (edit : found the messages talking about lightning coil, so i'll keep it in mind for later ^^, just forgot it was armour/eva, so better gather some jewelers first... but that means some armour to mitgate scold bridle too)

    BTW Aul's uprising with "anger reserves no mana" is 50 exalt atm... so i'll stick with essence worm until i get big luck !


    Level 74 atm, damage output is excellent, just the whole build a bit tricky to take in hand, especially in the mine (learn to time the flasks and check the mana and check the mobs and check the cart) but it'll be fine in a few level i guess.



    Actually i'm reading all the messages since begining of the thread to get some infos, so i don't have a lot of questions yet but one considering the skilltree :
    -on far right of the shadow you go to the big wheel with clever construction & highexplosives. Why don't you take the Devastating Strikes node ? Either on pob or your lobster from previous league you don't take it... The wheel is a complete circle so you could keep the mine laying speed node that leads to clever construction and keep on that way, take trap&mine crit chance (20%), Devastating Strikes major node (50% crit chance, 40% increased detonation area of effect), trap&mine crit multi minor and back to high explosives.
    You remove 2 minor mod 16% mine damage each, you take 2 minor node for 20% crit chance & 15% crit multi to get a major node for 50% crit chance.

    And btw, can anyone confirm that detonation area of effect grants pretty nothing to us except maybe VD /unearth more likely to aim further away mobs ?

    edit : ding level 80. Now got it smotthy. 27K damage tooltip, 75K with buffs. Multiplied by whatever number of balls... Anyway to know how long a ball last and how fast we cast the mine ? I doubt the cast time on the tooltip mean anything...
    For now my only fear is to get hit, not that i may die, but i don't know what it'll do to me. It's a huge level more rampaging than dual poetpen VD. I'll say hi once i get some more level and tried some big bosses.

    Bit slow on the reply here, so not sure how much of this is still relevant. That said:

    Yes, keeping up with the cart without stepping over various on-death effects can be tricky; my advice here would be to not worry so much about keeping pace with the cart if you're in a sketchy area. You'll have more than enough regen to proceed slowly and tank the darkness from well behind the cart.

    The upside is that the build excels once you're at delve checkpoints themselves: very easy to position yourself away from mobs and pump out VD orbs from behind frost wall.

    You certainly could. The build is extremely point-strapped, however, and I value crit chance less than health or multi elsewhere. Not a bad choice to take it by any means.

    Yes, detonation radius increases the range at which VD will target mobs. Quite possible that it has greater utility in delves—might be worth experimenting with.

    Sustained DPS is easy to calculate, but you're right: orb duration does make "burst" damage more difficult to ascertain.

    Level 85 and 80 ex enough to make the seap over? Tried this at the beginning of the league and couldnt sustain.

    Would this be enough to tur this into a bosd killer or whould I be better off going for another build?

    Boss killing is where it excels. I've found it uneven for Delving generally (which is why I haven't recommended it for 3.4), but it can still global bosses. Budget-wise, you've got more than enough for a Zerphi's, which is the main thing.

    I saw your video on reddit, that seems nice so far :D I was wondering if there is any mechanic that wouldn't also work if i tried the build as lowlife?

    Looks great, I'm pleased that someone picked up the torch on this build.

    Let me know if you're planning to do a guide, and I'll edit this one to direct to yours.

    There is an ES build guide similar to this. So I think that it is possible.
    But I've never play ES / lowlife character. I cannot imagine whether I can manage ES. Sorry
    GL for ur plan!

    I enjoyed a lot by playing your build in incursion league.

    I'm happy that you told me so!
    But, I'm not good at English unfortunately. It's difficult to write a detailed guide. Really sorry X(

    I don't know why, but Zerphis seems to still work with this build.
    Not as op as it used to be, but somehow the regen is still working. Any1 can figure it out:
