I am clvl 26 on Vet, with 3 skills point left, and with a blue offhand with +1 to occultist and a nice green weapon with +1 to DEE and BB and poison and acid dmg. All stat points go to life, 10 free left. DA and OA at approx. 560+.

My hp are 3200+, element res 50+, the bottom line of res 30+ aside from stun that sits uncomfortably at ...0

What shall I prioritize now? DEE and the 2nd skill BB? or put some points in BoD?

Equipment wise, what stats shall be a priority?

I noticed mobility is a riority as getting used to a different playstyle...hit and run, always moving. Run speed and CoF are a must for me atm.
Post a grimtools link with your epic items equipped

The rest green and yellow...but this weapon rolled with nice stats lots of +% poison and acid dmg.

are there any monster infrequents i shall be on the lookout for?

At level 85 crucible, do you just chug mana potions non-stop whenever off cooldown? I have a focusing prism on my amulet, but it still drains pretty quick. I'm not using a Dreeg's pieces since I only have the helmet (recipe) so I'm missing the Energy Regen from chestpiece/helmet.

I got it to work, finally. But it still say Ultimate difficulty, and I am still in Veteran and hence my res are all way higher...

I could use some tips on where to head next...equipment-, skill-, devotion-wise.

Btw, manticore's acid spray - is ir better to bind it to DEE or CoF...I tried both and CoF seems to be better....

cheers!!!

There's nothing too specific that stands out in my mind, use whatever you can to fill the resists as that is the sole purpose of these slots for us. Incorruptible rings and Stonehide boots/pants are always good, after that look for epics or really nice yellows with the stats you need

I use them, but certainly not non stop off cd. The extra regen from those pieces and the leech from the belt when used with DEE/shadow strike provides enough

Don't worry so much about your early game Jacko! Part of what makes GD fun (and why I don't include detailed lvling guide) is, because you can do w/e the fuck you want and it'll work until ultimate rolls around. Focus on DEE/Blood Burst, the other 2 mods are pretty worthless unless you go spammable dee in which case vile eruption is good. DEE/Burst, Vulnerability, Night's Chill, BoD, Pneumatic burst are things to focus on leveling up, don't forget to grab shadow strike too early for movement. Personally I think you should invest some more in your damage as you've got a lot in your mastery bar for the moment. I think 50/50 split or even bit more focus on abilities is better in vet/elite unless you rly struggle to survive gd

On equipment always always prioritize resists/health. Our damage is respectable even in ultimate with shite items, but we are naturally squishy and will stay that way till we stack enough health/hp regen/resists/dodge so that we can be crazy diver. There are no good MIs to look out for, the Groble snake clan drops the toxic effigy offhand which gives some +skills and +psn/acid, but the drop rate isn't so good and they kinda suck without good affixes. Slithtongue is always a decent option for this build though not really an MI

CoF provides more procs against huge mobs, DEE is better against a single target or small mob as you can proc it faster. You will 100% want CoF for Wendigo if you ever intend on doing crucible and it's still ok in campaign those think there are better options for it then

How viable is untransmuted DEE in Ultimate? Does anybody use it?

This is the last build i remember seeing that spams DEE. It's a bit old but should still work pretty well. I don't think DEE has really changed over the last few updates.

Thanks, Evil_Baka. I'll give it try. I've made a couple of transmuted DEE builds, haven't tried the untrasnmuted approach, as it were...
