I was on a different build when I felt I wanted a nice passive build. Then I found your thread and followed the instructions from the beginning. Now I'm on level 29. I actually didn't like the wendigo totem until I'm finally at the highest level of wendigo totem. Wow, now I rarely use potion. I love how the skills are helping me going through the game. Thanks for your build guidance

So is this build, or a similar, still worth to play? Heard many voices saying ret builds not worth anymore. Would like to play a ret warder with my 2 mates (maybe only skill soldier mastery and wait for the oathkeeper, who knows). but I'm afraid that 1. It will suck or 2. It'll be to boring to play.

Btw same thoughts about a pet necro..

Retaliation builds are boring anyway and atm can't really deal with ranged foes very well. OK should help that somewhat when FG is released.

Cabalist would probably be more fun, but skellies tend to lose their potency later in the game so if you want a pet build Conjurer is better.

Can we get an update on this?

And don't tell me it sucks. I'm really having fun with it for now. And yes, that may change later

Wouldn't hold your breath. Squib hasn't posted since last year and was last here back in April. Still maybe the changes to retaliation will draw him back again to update this when FG comes out.

Hopefully

Maybe someone will come along and give some pointers in the meantime.

While it doesn't "suck" per se, what I can tell you is that it is incredibly slow against ranged/casters and Crucible is nearly impossible on challenger/gladiator.

But that is a problem with every single build out there that relies on retaliation to kill.

The upcoming expansion however should give retaliation some love

Good lord don't get me started about casters. Yes they suck big time lol.

I've zero interest in Crucible, nothing about is fun and it seems pretty pointless, to me anyway. I'm glad others enjoy it.

I'm going to try another build or class till expansion release I think. But after facerolling Purifier, everything seems dull.
