Arrow [1.0.6.1] Cholol, the Breathtaking - Deathmarked Cadence Blademaster, Gladiator farmer (10 minutes)




Hello, wonderful people!
It's been a while since I seen Deathmarked set and paid attention to it. I think it was in Vanilla.
Today I unexpectedly noticed this set, and considering my love to Cadence I thought - what about?..
Well, I did it. Yep. That's right.

Meet Cholol, the Breathtaking.

>> Grimtools << no green items used
>> Grimtools << alternative (mad_lee's spec: Dying God, alternative gear)

Clears Crucible in 8-9 minutes.

Core of the build
  • Main damage skill of this build is Cadence supported by Execution.
  • Core of this build is Deathmarked set.
  • Other items are pretty much self-explanatory: Alkamos rings and Hagarrad gloves for pierce->cold conversion, Chausses of Barbaros are the most versatile pants in the game, boots cover resistances and provide additional DA.
  • Doom. Yes, I prefer this relic over Nemesis. Its flat physical damage gets converted into Cold and its proc provides huge payload of trauma that gets converted to frostburn. I love it.
  • Build's defenses include moderate ADCtH, fumble from Circle of Slaughter, some dodge and deflect chance, constant 38% physical resistance, big armor and Ghoul.

Gameplay
  • Aggressive melee combat.
  • This build is a glass cannon like other Deathmarked BMs, so don't rush like headless berserk and kite if you're in danger.
  • Aleks meteors are dangerous, choose the arena wisely and cover under arks when you see him.
  • Anasteria and Theodin do some damage too, but they are killed fast enough to not worry about them.

Max crit landed in Crucible (solo, Crucible buffs, no banners)

Без зеленок любому блейдмастеру очень сложно настакать здоровья, у меня есть еще 2 БМ и там тоже по 11к, кажись
Да фиг его знает, че с этим делать. Будь у тебя 28к или 18к хп, в горниле одинаково пробивают, только персы с печатью более-менее живут

Update.
I changed some components around, swapped some points in and out and unexpectedly uncovered the true potential of the Deathmarked. And now this character is totally not glass cannon.
Now this character is my most damaging one and I'm happy to share it with you.

hey, man, just a tiny suggestion to that revised classics. Restless remains in gloves + coldstone in weapon would be much better for performance, imo. Your 5% adtch from Seal of Blades makes you leech with just one weapon, when 3% in gloves slot would work for both.

I would also suggest stacking that slow res - greatly increases performance of a melee build in Crucible (I think Decorated Soldier is more valuable than Fighting Spirit).

And since it became a kind of a tradition for me to meddle with your builds when you don't ask for it, here is an alternative setup from me

More leech, much more damage, 38% slow res versus 8%, more of everything except armor.

Much more damage? Where? 32k in your variation vs 32k in my, except minus Cadence and minus lifesteal.
First version of my build had double Coldstone and had 34,5k WD, but I came to this one because it's not a glass cannon anymore.
I'll complement this reply tomorrow, can't look at constellations from phone
Edit: no ghoul. I don't see its ADCtH in 2nd tab. Unacceptable

Edit2: no offense, bro, keep writing

Not sure where you are looking at, I have both ghoul and more adtch than your setup, no offense taken

When you are home, give my setup a run or two. By damage I meant more oa and much much more flat cold coupled with slow res. Not sheet dps, sheet dps doesn't reflect anything.
