Or you can use runes like I am - a sneak peak at my next build: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/DV9Q0j6V

Still very much so being min-maxed.

While pierce runes look interesting, I can't escape the idea that it's so much easier to just convert to physical and have my gear slots back. Might just be me though.

That's definitely true. But if you're gonna go for phys conversion, you're more or less stuck with octavius/beronath combo which I've done before.

The nice thing about pierce based runes is that there are plenty of skill modifiers which really beef them up.

Just don't go melee or you'll very quickly realise that you should have gone with a belgothian set build or even good old demapteran slicers. Converting a few procs and such is not worth sacrificing two rings and a belt, I can tell you from experience. Melee pierce is supported decently, what this combination of items does and that nothing else can do is make full pierce ranged builds.

Still isn't nearly as good as cold or even aether runes. Problem imo is % pierce sucks and I didn't have a secondary skill to provide supplementary damage. Also not enough artifact handling points. Still does the job fine though. 40% phys res is soo good for tankiness.

I know you like Kalastor but wouldn't +2 to inq be better than +1 to inq in tbe ammy? Runebinder gem looksnso great for that one.

I'll check it out, but I stuck with the conduit mostly for health. 10k is terrifying in crucible especially when the -25% mutator comes around.

I mostly run around the place crying to myself when annie shows up.

@Belzzzz - pm'd ya.

Small rebuild of the infiltrator I posted on page 1 of this thread, this one uses different pistols and ABB + LA which is a bit more conventional. Still has my silly devotion setup, there is undoubtedly a much better one that solves the many weaknesses this crudely and quickly slapped together attempt has.

So yeah it has wildly insufficient hitpoints, resists are semi awful, it probably needs godly double rare crafted boots and devotion setup that gives 5k hitpoints. But I'm not a crucible player and this works fine in the campaign.
