Post [v1.0.3.0] Blades of Vitality revisited - Badass knife spamming WitchHunter



Forword:
Basically all the credit goes to JoV's orginal build, PrinceXavieR's recommandations and the v1.0.3.0 patch! I had this build ready for version 1.0.2.1 but I am glad I waited to post this..it was pushed from a decent and fun build to top tier level!


Core Gameplay:
Set up Blade Spirits for maximum coolness, selfbuff with blood of dreeg and pneumatic burst, debuff enemies with CoF(Rattosh), proc Hungering void and Wendigo Mark and start spamming those deadly blades! Honestly for everything not having purple or red names, just do the last part...


More buffs coming with patch 1.0.4.0!

-Frenetic Throw: reduced % Damage Modifier penalty to -50%

-Mythical Demonslayer's Hat: added 50 Vitality damage modifier for Blade Spirit

-Demonslayer's Armament Set: added 100% of Pierce converted to Vitality and 90 Vitality damage modifiers for Blade Spirit

-Rattosh, the Veilwarden: added 18 Vitality Decay / 3s and 20 Offensive Ability, replaced % Vitality Resist with 15% Pierce and Bleed Resist. Removed pet bonuses.

All in all it seems like a decent buff, we will see how it stands up against the new crucible soon!
I will continue working on my builds after the 8th of January, when I am not as busy anymore!

*double seal of res. only for stun resist..if you have a better idea let me know (found that stuns were the only thing that really hurt him)

Regarding the gloves:

Mythical Riftwarped Grasp and Mythical Aetherreach come really, really close to each other. I assume the performance differences (which come down to 1-2 seconds on the dummy kill time) are neglectable. I would suggest picking the one that fit your gear rolls better. Maybe we should all just chill out a little and be grateful that we have the options to pick between 4-6 gloves depending on what we need!

Video: Quick Fabius Kill
*You can consitently kill him before he pops his barrier, which is awesome!

Attributes:
Physique: 96
Cunning: 0
Spirit: 9 (you might need 1 or 2 more depending on rolls)

Devotion Binding:
Hungering Void - Dreegs Evil Eye
Wendigo's Mark: Bloody Pox
Acid Spray: Phantasmal Blades
Will of Rattosh: Curse of Frailty

Devotion route:
1. Crossroads ( order)
2. Panther
3. Eel
4. Crossroads (eldritch)
5. hawk
6. Scholar light
6. Crossroads ( chaos)
7. Jackal
8. Viper
9. Wendigo
10. Solemn watcher
11. Crossroads ( ascendant)
12. Toad
13. Okaine lantern
14. Cross roads ( primordial)
15. remove toad
16. remove crossroads ( ascendant, order and eldritch)
17. get manticore ( except leg)
18. Ratosh
19. Dying God until hungering void.
*thanks PrinceXavieR

In Closing:
It just wrecks everything and has good sustain. The armor buffs and buffs to the Blades really suit this character. Gameplay is noob friendly. Might do a leveling guide sometimes soon. Definetly will follow up with better videos!

If you are lucky enough with Thunderstruck boots of Kings, you wont need 2x seal of resonance, you could go with nicer seals.
Also would like to ask why did you chose these pants, for the skill disruption protection?

Waiting for more videos!

Nice build man

I have been testing a similar build the last few days.. My version is a reaper. This is my current load out. Today's buffs to damage, as well as to our armor value have been pretty awesome. I was able to solo glad 150 no buff before, but its ez now. http://www.grimtools.com/calc/YZeYKO0Z

For reference on the damage, without my -39 vit resist from spectral wrath on the dummy i get 25-30k per blade crits.

the changes to the relic, makes it a solid choice indeed.. more dps, more resistances, more hp and a better proc, looks cool too.. OA whores might be a bit sad but the sacrifice is worth it..
