I tested it x4 times on Fabius and i'd say he dies a little faster with Horn of Gandarr (87% proc almost always + good Crowd Control skill). In the time i use Winter King's might i can hit him ~2-3 times and deal more damage. I will stay with Horn of Gandarr in this case

I see. Can't argue if you have tested it

Great to see more 2h elemental damage builds!

EDIT: I had done a theory craft of a similar build in the past, tweaked it a bit based on your build for crucible farming. It prioritizes damage over survival, so not for HC use.

This cold infiltrator idea seems popular. I also theorycrafted it and went for this: grimtool.

My build surely lacked RR (not BIS amulet + aura of censure instead of conviction) and I wasn't impressed and retired it for Radaggan set testing.

I'd be curious to see this 11 sec. Lokarr video though ? I can't believe this is a few steps away from a t1 build.

Most levelings are made with one particular skill that has enough damage to carry you at least through the first 75 levels. There are mostly no guides on how to level, because most of us know how to level our characters. In this case, the best would be using Word of Pain tree and focusing on elemental damage. You'll eventually see when your damage is kind of weak/solidly weak and you'll know you gotta re-build.

Rune of Hagarrad is also excellent for levelling. Great AoE and great shotgun/damage for Boss killing.

WoP is way better, imo, because it has no cooldown and, arguably, more AoE. Also Rune of Hagarrad needs to arm if I remember correctly (actually used it only once the second day of AoM release, so I can be wrong here).

I haven't levelled with Word of Pain so don't know how well it works but Hagarrad is pretty damn good and with this build means you get used to how it plays as you level rather than using a skill that you'll drop later on.

I'd rather say it depends on the playstyle at this point. If you're like "fuck off, gimme 94", you go WoP, if you're like "OH DAMN LET'S PLAY GRIMMY DAWNY!!! <3 <3 <3" then you go Hagarrad, because it actually requires you to put it in a good spot or move around it to deal effective damage (hitting more enemies at once). Word of Pain just requires you to push a button. Oh and run forward. :P
