Post [1.0.7.1] Budget Krieg CT Spellbinder [g2/g3][c+][vid]

Preview

Overall Spellbinder is one of the top classes in Grim Dawn.Right now Agrivix Callidor Tempest is the king,but is it possible to build decent build,if you dont have top tier set?Malwiglenn created very good guide for begginers-http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80822
and the next logical step is to try build around Krieg set,because it is easy and fast to obtain it.Of course there are some issues like low cast speed,small regen and small amount of resistances.Still i try to cover the minuses with the items form my shared stash.

Gearing

weapon,off hand
Wrath of Ascendat+Reaper combo is very good.Any aether off hand can do it,for example Vanity is nice.For weapon option is Warpfire.
jewels
Rings are flexible.Albrecht duality for conversion and crafted Eternal Haunt seems BiS.Blue Magelord are good too.I use two Albrecht,but i have some problems with rr.Amulet is Callidors Shard for fire to aether,but other blue items like Arcane eclipse and Essence of beronath are good too.Medal is crafted,jut like helmet.
relic
Relic is Haunt.Cheap and usefull,plus spammable skill for rr.
other
Belt is mythical Cord of violent decay.Non mythical is good too.Pants are hard to be replaced,maybe Barbaros will fit.

Devotions
Nothing crazy here.Hourglass,Dying god and Spear.I dont have reset button for TD,so i use haunt.Anyway I will take hourglass even without proc.

Grim calc

Crucible
This build can clear fast and reliable Gladiator 100-150.My time is around
20 minutes on 2 buffs.Only hard enemy is Mad Queen.Higher waves are different story.Build have outsanding aoe,but subpar single target damage combine with rr(111% total)not activatet at same time reduces clear time.Reaper is hardest nemesist.Alex is slow,but with nullification posses no threat,Grava is dangerous,but has small health.Kuba dies quick too.My clear times are usually 2:30 or more slower than top players due to my mediocre skills and lag,but still...My only recording is at my first try on 170 with spellbinder and its 11 minutes long,ridicoulous time for Spellbinder.I try playing with chaos strike,but its not worth it.

Conclusiion

If you want to play CT build,try Agrivix.Krieg binder can be used to farm Crucilbe on 100-150 for better pieces without random drop set or crazy Mi greens,but i dont think its to build.Click image for larger version

Nice write-up dude! I will include this guide in my "further reading" section

I think it looks decent-ish and it is nice to show off these "transition builds" for new(er) players

It should be so easy for you just to modify the "rules" of your thread (that is not even a sticky) "you can use green items from faction vendors" xD

"We have spoken about this" btw

Nice to see another CT binder. But I got some feedback if you don't mind:

- the point in Foul Eruption (it does absolutely nothing)
- overcap of Mental Alacrity (if it's about energy then put those points in IEE - better returns)
- off-hand (Reaper is probably the worst choice here, if you really don't wanna use anything Agrivix then use Codex of Lies for rr, skill cost reduction and cast speed not to mention disruption res and better energy regen)
- no flat RR (I would rather complete Krieg since you already got 17% adcth but I'm not sure how it would work - would surely be much faster though)
- double Albrechts (makes little sense if you're not using Agrivix relic or Eye of the Guardian - pick Eternal Haunt as the second)
- armor augment choice (you're prioritizing bleed and acid res overcaps over aether and vitality)
- relic completion bonus

I made some changes to get more resistance reductions:

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

Also from a Bugdet perspective, I do like these off-hands that can be shopped from Hyram https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/8613
They give some QoL when you dont use caster helm and chest

Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. But now it’s got shit core stats... Try Viper and two crossroads instead of Lizard and Jackal but I don’t know...

Also, get rid of that Ectoplasm and use Arcane Spark on the medal. That’s ~50 oa/da and better energy anyway.

I did not do anything about the devos, but yeah you are right

2.9k OA and 2.8k DA is kinda "decent" I guess but not great.

Here is the build with your suggested changes https://www.grimtools.com/calc/pZrarpjV
