Thumbs Up [1.0.6.1] Oirunas, The Lord of the Watch - 2H Aether Savagery Ritualist, Gladiator Farmer (11")



Hello guys!
Inspired with a success of my previous Cold 2H Savagery trickster I decided to make something curious to think about. I don't see any Gladiator build with Temporal Arcblade I always loved and (I think) no one uses melee Aether Savagery.
So, here it is!

Meet Oirunas, The Lord of the Watch.
>> Grimtools << No green items used


Core of the build
  • Savagery really shines this patch, and I had lots of fun with this one. This build uses Savagery converted into Aether using Conduit of Wild Whispers with proper prefix.
  • The second part of the recipe is class combo of WPS: Shaman provides Feral Hunger, and Necromancer provides Reaping Strike and Necrotic Edge. With these WPS procs you have 50% chance to hit 5 targets with 367% or 488% WD (Necrotic Edge or Feral Hunger), and 50% Chance to heal yourself for 36% of damage dealt (Reaping Strike and Feral Hunger) with 21% constant ADCtH on top.
  • Very good survivability and sustain coupled with layered defenses and huge HP.
  • 124% Aether RR to support our damage.

Key explanations
  • This build is relatively easy to assemble due to bunch of craftable items: weapon, ring, amulet, helm.
  • Always look for % Armor bonus on craftable items.
  • With 75% WPS pool Upheaval becomes redundant, since it's only 25% chance to hit someone with regular attack, and with 15% crit chance it's totally 3% to proc Upheaval. I almost don't see its procs during main campaign, so I decided to take it out and invest only 1 pt.
  • Do not be fooled with only 11k Aether damage in Weapon damage on sheet: it doesn't show the Lightning->Aether conversion from Savagery. With conversion you totally have ~18-20k Aether weapon damage.
  • In comparison with Arcanist, Necromancer don't have so good additional sources of flat Aether like Fabric of Reality and Reckless Power, but additional Aether RR and 2 strong WPS procs make Necromancer more preferable for Aether Savagery build like this.
  • Aetherfire Fleshwarped Core of Shattered Reality weapon is in fact little better, but all its damage bonuses are wasted with its low attack speed. I found one and total damage gain is 6% - not worth spending so much time to find one.

Gameplay
  • Aggressive melee combat. Debuff everything and crush'em all!
  • As I said, this build is super durable: you live on ADCtH from Weapon damage, ADCtH from Reaping Strike and Feral Hunger; if you're in danger, place Wendigo Totem; if that's not enough, cast Mark of Torment; as the last defense you always have Ghoul proc. This all together translates into 15-20 seconds of practical invincibility, so you can face (for example) 2 Reapers and Maiden with ease.
  • The only danger is Grava'Thul, kill him first. His ridiculous 64% damage reduction makes our healing WPS' ineffective, so you must kite a bit until your damage returns.

Medal is questionable, I traded it in net game for previous build, and transferred it to this one. Other craftables are crafted by me.

How much iron coins it cost? I suppose around 30 mil for okaysh rolls on 2h, conduit and relic.
Anyway its possible to replace BoM with any green Infiltrator medal of attack.
Anyway a build with +5 BoM, dooblerare pantsu and exact suffix on conduit is not "supereasy" to assemble. Even with substitute like Legplate of Valor and green medal.

All my gladiators are multi-millionaires, so I just eventually transfer all iron to current gladiator and craft things till success.

Now to the items:
Relic and shoulders are from the previous build.
On Conduit I looked for Aether Savagery prefix, resistance suffix doesn't matter much - I crafted one with poison and closed other resists with armor augments.
2H and helm - can't say, I just crafted them and looked for armor bonus.

In summary it don't take much time and money.

UPD: edited the description for "relatively easy".
As for pants: they must be "Stonehide" and cover elemental resistance also. I have this pair of pants, but maybe Kuba chausses are BiS with elemental-res suffix.

7% Armor roll require 12 attempts to craft with 80% chance to sucsess. If you want a good item, it translate intro ~30 crafting attempts. For 2H, ring, shoulders and hat.
Then come mithycal relic with exact skill bonuses. ~9 crafting attempts.
All this stuff would require around 300 hours of farming for coins and mats. "Easy" to assemble, lol.
