[1.0.4.1] Aether Drain Essence Spellbinder - Hex Launcher



Tried Hex Launcher on Spellbinder

It's Nice, has more Aether conversion (Full Aether Conversion to Drain Essence) thus more DPS
Also in v1.0.5.0 we got several nice Buffs :

*Note, we can't use Reaping Arc Skills from Relic, because Reaping Arc require melee weapon (Hex Launcher is Range Weapon)
It's okay, since we're using chanelling spell anyway
I mean that since we are using Chanelling Spell, any other skills will interrupt this Chanelling Spells (in this build is Drain Essence)
Less active spells will increase QoL, we don't have push to much buttons that will interrupt our primary Skills

You can levelling with Drain Essence like this :

Or You can also levelling with AAR from Arcanist Mastery :

In Closing :
Spoiler!

Actually I expected that you (as aether drain essence build) will use this pistol for conversion.

P.S. It's a hilarious that today i finished (on stream) my apostate via drain essence.

Thanks for the builds...

However I'm not too interested in seeing videos where the only thing that is cleared is trash. Rather see some boss fights and see how it does against them.

By the time you have reasoable gear with any build, trash clearing is a one shot adventure anyway.

I started GD again with the expansion with a somewhat similar drain essence build but abandoned that one at around level 74 because I totally got oneshotted every time on one of the end bossese of the campaign.

Yeah it will get full conversion to Drain Essence,
I just couldn't resist the Crit Damage and % OA from this Dagger

I would like to try Hex Launcher when I've spare time later

I saw your Apostate, it's Nice Video
Congratz for finished it with Apostate
I seldom see Apostate builds nowadays

Actually those videos at least show fight to Nemesis, I just don't have enough spare time for search other nemesis and make/edit videos

Here the nemesis boss fights :
Fabius
Iron Maiden

Mad Queen
Zantarin
Valaxteria
Fabius

Perhaps these videos can make you satisfied :
All Nemesis / Bosses I
All Nemesis / Bosses II

Cheers

What about using https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/9320 as main weapon? Another -20% Aether RR is quite nice actually.

Damage isnt a problem for this build, actually.
Defences are.
