Rift sin
Throw barb / horker
Fb sorc

All 3 of those are little off beat, fb sorc will probably be meta soon if it isn't already.

Rift sin is prob my #1 pvm build. Physical + traps + aoe

Throw barb was something new I tried. P4 or under Ideally. Can handle p8 but clear speed is pretty slow at that point. Isted or lem'd babas on swap. Generally 700 eg / 500 mf with standard equipment.

Since hardcore, it's really hard to get killed with dragondin or with a hydra sorc. You need to actively try. Both are effective with sunder charms. Wind is frustrating at times due to tornados missing all the time, but cold hurricane druid is also very safe to play.



Is a nado / hurricane Druid the same thing? 🤔

Grief best average single target DPS damage weapon sure
Rift on you and merc with the native high level conviction is going to be loads of AOE

what did they break on strafe?



i believe he's talking about the more recent patch notes saying the 75% weapon damage penalty was removed (and the tooltip/stat screen reflecting that), but in reality it's still there

Eh I’ll give it a try, the rune word is cheap. I’ll try it later tonight. Should clear p1-p3 as long as I’m not attacking with my cta anyways lol

Hurricane I meant a druid that maximizes cold dmg, like nightwings and doom. You spend 60 points for hurricane + synergies, you can get strong summons with the rest. You just tele around without casting anything. Very safe to play at P1 since everything dies immediately.
