I don't have much experience with aspirant/challenger, so take what I say with a HUGE pinch of salt.

But it seems to me that you're struggling simply because of a lack of gear. Do you play self-found? If not, I'm willing to craft ignaffar's combustion for you, and the justice helm for you as well.

These recipes were found before I used GDstash, so you can rest assured that they will be 100% legit so long as you pass me the mats.

I can also check my pack mules to see if I have any spare:
1. justice shoulders/gloves
2. pyroclasm medal
3. Ulzuin belt

Again, these items are all 100% legit.

If you ARE playing self-found, and are uncomfortable taking it, your best bet is SoT runs.

The reason why your build is suffering is mostly because:
1. Lack of skill points
2. Lack of armor absorption
3. Lack of OA/DA

In the mean time, try something like this:

thank you a lot.
But for me is important to grind the stuff by myself and "earn" it I know I could push my build and "craft" some items or trade or so but this will be boring for me very quick. Most of the arpgs end for me if my char can handle the endgame easy
https://www.grimtools.com/calc/b283gD7N the helm I could craft by myself. The devotion stayed. I thought about the ghoul often but IMO the problem for me is not lifeleach. Most death are actually from bad plays or bad beat situation.
I can farm with this guy 100-150challenger on repeat with 2 tributes. Found now the Justice Shoulders and a lot of other stuff

edit: btw is there a addon/tool for getting the right augments to min/max resis? Your guy posted with other augments and components look instantly so much better then my og.

I'm biased, of course...but Ghoul is a must IMO for most autoattacking builds.

It's not the life leech, it's the circuit breaker.

Getting 30% or so phys res + a fuck load of lifeleech = full health with 1 shot for 6 seconds. This means you can't die for 6 seconds.

Combine this with bloodthirster and you become a lot tankier. I suggest trying it out.

No, there's no addon/tool for augments/components unfortunately. Just experience.

Regardless - fiend is better than magi. Definitely make that change.

Just try fiend. It has no cooldown, and you basically get 2 fire streams circling you which means that you deal (26% * 2) = 52% weapon damage each time they hit an enemy.

With 2, or 3 of them up, you basically can get one free autoattack every second.

Magi isn't that great unless you can tank enemies and have them sit on top of the fissure, and have the fragments shotgun their butts.

EDIT: You also really want to get 100% armor absorption. Scaled hide is a must IMO.

2nd EDIT: I would do this - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/0V0Pdq1V

I'm just glad it's useful. If not it'd have been a huge waste o' time.

NICE!!!!

P.S. Made some tiny changes in skill distribution - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/b28311yN

12/12 exploding shot is needed for more weapon damage for more lifesteal. 11/16 vindictive flame for more attack speed.
