Forum Index Scion 3.6 Ascendant Wild Strike - Melee is "dead" Part 2! +3mil dps/~7k life (Shaper/Uber Elder down)

History



Hello Exiles,
welcome to my Wild Strike build. This build is using an unpopular weapon "Voidforge" but that doesnt mean that this weapon is bad right?

Voidforge
Infernal Sword
Click to expand
  • 30% increased Global Accuracy Rating
  • 98% increased Physical Damage
  • 8% increased Attack Speed
  • +90 to maximum Life
  • Your Elemental Damage can Shock
  • Gain 300% of Weapon Physical Damage as Extra Damage of a random Element
  • 20% increased Area of Effect for Attacks
  • Deal no Non-Elemental Damage
  • A weapon born of nothingness,

    can only create more nothingness.



    Well to be honest Wild Strike isnt that popular too... This makes it more fun to make these nerds to look good.


    Defence
    - Fortify
    - Stun Immune
    - Life Leech ~1400/sec
    - Life Regeneration +400/sec
    - Max. Resistances capped at 80%
    - 22% Phys. Damage Reduction (without flask)
    - ~ 7000 life

    Damage
    You must edit Voidforge in Pob to proper calculate the damage.
    Pob cant calculate "Gain 300% of Weapon Physical Damage as Extra Damage of a random Element". To work around this problem edit it to this

    -->
    Gain 100% of Weapon Physical Damage as Extra Fire Damage
    Gain 100% of Weapon Physical Damage as Extra Cold Damage
    Gain 100% of Weapon Physical Damage as Extra Lightning Damage

    Since Voidforge comes with huge flat elemental damage all we need to do is stacking crit chance and crit multiplier.

    Loreweave got his maximum resistances nerfed to 78%. Still pretty solid chest but i feel like we need some alternatives. So for now i recommand to craft yourself a body armour with fossil crafting. Here is the fossil you need to get the most important stat.



    Try to hit high life, resistances and supported by maim.



    Also new to the game are these gloves.



    My guess it that they would be fit perfectly into the build and i recommand to use them.

  • Weapon
    Voidforge - This build is working around this weapon.

    Chest
    I think the best allround chest for this build. Offers good offense and defense stats.

    Jewlery
    Xoph's Blood - I think its easier to focus on 1 element. Getting Avatar of Fire, Fire Penetration and Cover Enemies in Ash

    Call of the Brotherhood and Pyre - Using to convert the rest of cold and lightning damage to fire.

    Helmet
    Try to get high life and accuracy rating. When you got some currency also grab "- fire resistances to nearby enemies".

    Gloves
    Use this slot for fixing your hit chance and resistances if you have problems.
    Stats to look for: Life, resistances, accuracy rating and attack speed.

    Boots
    Since we dont need movement speed because we are jumping around like a little bunny we can grab some decent life and more important stun immunity with Kaoms Roots.


    Ascendancy

    Shadow Ascendancy --> Assassin (Power Charges and +1% to Crit)

    they had no hope of understanding, let alone defeating,

    and one by one, they became a part of it.


    Watchers Eye - +x% to critical strike chance while affected by hatred is helping alot for pushing crit chance

    All other jewels - Look for life and more importantly critical strike multiplier since its boosting our damage alot! We can use critical strike multiplier in all variants: fire, elemental, cold, lightning, global, melee and with swords. Try to find jewels with 2-3 crit multiplier on it.

    Hello,

    i have Mechanic Questions.

    My train of thought:

    Wildstrike have 100% Conversion and you Choose Random between lightning, cold and fire.

    How works the Conversion from Rings and Amulet in these case?

    So you get the Conversion only for the extra Damage or you get the conversion for all damage include the Wildstrike?

    Does that mean all of your wildstrike attacks are just making fire or are cold and lightning unaffected by the conversion?

    Well we play Avatar of Fire in this variant. So every damage we deal gets converted to fire damage. With Pyre and Call of the Brotherhood we nearly convert all cold and lightning damage to fire.
    To answer your question - We convert all damage including Wildstrike. This does mean we deal only fire damage!
