Arrow [1.1.1.2] Cholol, the Breathtaking - Deathmarked Blademaster, Gladiator (6:08) and SR 80 viable

1.1.1.2



Hello, wonderful people!
It's been a while since I seen Deathmarked set and paid attention to it. I think it was in Vanilla.
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.

Clears Crucible in 6-7 minutes (6:08 best run by John_Smith)
With slight refinement kills Ravager and Avatar of Mogdrogen with ease (see Ashes of Malmouth stuff).
Completes Shattered Reality up to Shard 80 (85 for Infiltrator).


>> Grimtools << default setup << Blademaster
>> Grimtools << default setup << Infiltrator

[1.0.7.1] Ashes of Malmouth GT links


Core of the build
  • Main damage skill of this build is Cadence supported by WPS skills such as Execution.
  • Core of this build is Deathmarked set and Dread Sigils of Alkamos rings.
  • Mythical Night's Embrace amulet is what makes half of the job on boss chunks for this build. It provides very good amount of OA, +1 to Nightblade, phys->cold conversion and super powerful granted RR skill. This is especially useful against cold-resistant enemies such as Kubacabra, Fabius and Moosilauke.
  • This build stacks huge load of flat cold damage using weapon augments, jewelry augments, devotion route and all its gear if focused around flat cold damage. Its autoattack damage is immense, and it is supported by many sources of AoE damage including Hand of Ultos, Blizzard, Black Blood of Yugol, Dreadfire, Nidalla's Final Strike and two moderately powerful Shadow Strike skills.
  • Build's defenses include moderate ADCtH, fumble from Circle of Slaughter, some dodge and deflect chance, constant physical resistance, decent armor, Prismatic Diamond and Ghoul. Its secondary resistances (to Stun and Slow) are high enough too.

Gameplay
  • Aggressive melee combat.
  • Nothing can hurt this character in campaign and Crucible.
  • In Shattered Reality this build is rather on fragile side of balance, but it always completes boss chunks in first or second try. But always use Venomguard Ointment when you see Kaisan and always avoid Aleksander meteors, they start oneshotting you at approx. 77 shard.

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.
