Default [Fire/Cold Melee] Nex & Ortus Saboteur

Here I present a Nex v Ortus Saboteur along with a Cold Fire Strike Saboteur.

FAQ -

Which one is better?

The Cold variant, you don't even need to ask.


Why not go with Coldstone?

Well I wanted more OA so went with Seal of the Night.


Why not use Amatok on either of the builds?

The nodes of Leviathan are better imo even though Amatok's shotgun is milestones ahead of Whirlpool. Pick whatever you like, I went with Leviathan for the nodes but you can go with Amatok for Blizzard. Ofc, I don't mean to imply Whirlpool is a bad proc in any way.


Why not use two Chillflame Evokers?

Ugdenbog Chillstrife's RR and attack speed rolls make it the better weapon.


Why use Rimetongue Chestpiece?

It has 30% Lightning to Cold conversion that is used to convert portion of Static Strike's damage to Cold.


Can't the Nex v Ortus get Fiend?

Sure Flame Torrent is usable here, you just need to sacrifice a few things to get it. I am kinda sick of the proc so didn't want to use it here.



In Closing-

Credits to Dikkiedik for reminding me that Shadowspark Hood exists in the game and to korsar as the nex v ortus setup's devotion was inspired by his own setup.

Nex v Ortus has its fair share of problems but overall is pretty fun to tinker with. Be sure to check out Valinov's Infiltrator variant.

The Cold Fire Strike Saboteur is something I thoroughly enjoyed, it was fun to play with

Both builds were fun and I hope you guys enjoy them as well.

Always found these swords very weird, cold based one looks very nice as a stand-alone though.

Multi-elemental damage looks really hard to work with with everything being scattered all over the devotion map, and Sage having such ridiculous requirements that make it only workable with Leviathan on top of not granting a particularly desirable skill imo.

Is bat chosen over fiend because of the ADctH?

I always wanted to make a Nex & Ortus build, but I could never shake the feeling that it would just be a worse version of the Tri-Element Sabo.

This build seems very nice. I just started playing the nightblade mastery, and it seems like a really fun class. I will definitely try this out next!

Same opinion about swords, no idea how good they were stand-alone though

Multi-Elemental isn't hard it's a bitch to work with
You're spot on about Sage, Leviathan's skill is decent imo. The overall constellation is much better than Sage can ever hope to be

And yes, while i play 1.0.0.7, i try to tune things to 1.0.0.8. And hence tweaked things based on 1.0.0.8 ADCtH nerfs which is the reason i picked Bat.

Thank you, yes NB is a pretty fun to play class

Thank you.

It felt hard sacrificing stuff to arrive at this setup but it was worth it at the end.
