This has been interesting. I was looking for something different. Its taken me awhile, I'm used to either getting in a demons face and pounding on it, or blowing them up with a ranged, either two hand or dual wield. Hosing them down with DE is fun too, lol.

Thanks
You can leveling with Drain Essence like this :

Video :

Nullification, Mark of Torment, and Mirror is good enough for defensive layers
Take a note, Drain Essence is also a Defensive Skills, it can reduce enemies OA signifivantly via Decomposition

Gaze of Beronath just for additional CC (not for OA reduction)
You can also use OFF for CC mobs

Leveling via AAR is also fun, it more faster, playing with Glass Canon Style

Help me a bit here.
I dont get Devotion choosing. Why Manticore with its poison boosts? Why Spear with its lightning boosts?
Why not Rattosh or Affliction? Bat? Vendigo? All the stuff with Vita damage. Or maybe some Aether constellations.

Spears adds %OA, Crit% and Aether dmg also.
Manticore adds OA and reduces resistances.

I can understand not picking Time Dilation, Eternity and Devastation in your setup since it feels like those three things have been overdone

But have you considered this?

And this (it uses Devastation and Eternity but not the Uroboruuk Set)

Yes, this :

Manticore usually taken for it's Acid Spray (28 Flat RR on lvl 20)
You can also use BSoD for Flat RR

SotH like Bloodsword said :
- Flat and %OA
- Crit Damage
- Flat and %Aether Damage

Remember, this Build is an Aether Build

Btw Bloodsword reminds me to this

https://www.grimtools.com/calc/r2BkgwwV

And this (it uses Devastation and Eternity but not the Uroboruuk Set)

https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNYe9J4N
The first one, https://www.grimtools.com/calc/r2BkgwwV
Reckless Power seems give more Aether Damage, also we'll have half Aether Retaliation from Belt

We'll lost increasing on Vitality Decay DoT without Harbinger of Souls
I think Aether need to have its own DoT

Aether Siphon Souls is nice, it's okay since we're using ToL in this build

If only it doesn't have minus Health Regen
I don't use it on some of my builds due to negative health regen, I just had un sweet experienced when using Siphon Souls while fighting hard hitter mobs


Second one, https://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNYe9J4N
Nice gear combination for Vit --> Aether conversion
With nice rolls perhaps it'll reach 100%, idk for sure
Didn't realize that Fleshwarped Tome gives 50% Vitality to Aether conversion

Only Behemoth for Health Regen, watch out when using Siphon Souls
Need to be carefull

And last, the weapon Wrath of the Ascendant
Nice weapon that gives nice +1 skills and sweet Aether RR
it's included in my to do list weapon for testing later
Comparing with Hex and Jaravuuk

Fabius will have his tears down when see a Spellbinder using this weapon ^^

I'd like to try that Apostate build. What would be the easiest way to get to level 50 and higher, through which skills?
