How exactly are you supposed to use cast on melee kill? You have to use two links for cast on melee kill and a spell, reducing the damage your melee skill does and causing the spell to have no links (or to take more from the melee skill). Is there something I'm missing or did they just forget to add something like "Spells cast on melee kill deal 300% more damage"?

Pretty sure support skills can affect both the attack and the spell, and the spells do get a more multiplier from the cast on melee kill.

Also, don't use Cast on Melee Kill.

If you must, you want to use passives, supports, and items that scale your spell and attack.

Do we know if Dark Pact is going to work with both life and ES? Or are you just not going to be able to self cast it as CI?

I assume you would as CI. If you cast it and there are no skellies, you lose 6% of your life. I would guess that gets rounded down when you have 1 life. But someone should test it, preferably on hardcore

I was hoping it would work on your ES pool instead of your life pool. RIP my CI Dark Pact Occultist. I guess I could go totems.

CI is fine for for builds that don't utilize leech. There were builds in beta that hit 11k ES and killed Shaper. Its just not the default choice anymore.

So I got a random rare ilvl 100 body armor from divination cards, and of course the one I got isn't good. Question is, is it worth to keep and use chaos orbs on it simply because it's 100 ilvl? I have no idea. Base is Carnal Armour if that means anything.

Don't bother. You should be able to buy ilvl 84 chests, which can roll the highest tier of mods, in whatever flavor you want for dirt cheap.

Hey y'all I'm puttin the finishing touches on a new OP but what I really need a hand with is beginner friendly starter builds, preferably with a link to a build guide. I'm trying to put together a small collection of melee, ranged, caster, summoner, etc type starter builds.

Engineering Eternity just posted a pair of Starter Builds for 3.0

His other videos about how to move through zones quickly in Acts 1-4 and things like the Forgotten Masters etc. are also great introductory videos for new players.

No love for your made-up things.


Thinking about Cyclone, it looks like Berserker if I want to min/max and Juggernaut if I want to not die?

Slayer is a good middle ground between those two as well. Lots of leech for survivability, stun immunity and some two handed damage and AoE to top it off.

It used to not have a cooldown, so every melee kill resulted in a cast. These days . . . yeah I don't know why the bothered leaving the gem in the game files if they were going to gut it so hard. I understand it was to prevent abuse cases like Wormblaster, but it's seriously bad now.

Rage Your Dream

How would RF Zerker be as a starter? It seems like it would at least be tank but it might require too much gear to be able to effectively survive since it's melee range /w no leech.

Why Zerker instead of Juggernaut or Chieftain?

Mostly cause that's the build that Pohx showcased on youtube, and the 40% damage and regen/speed you get from the ascendancy seems good. I'm not sure the build is viable w/o the items he has, which is why I'm asking here.

Like half the video is dedicated to him showing how the build can be done with no gear, no flasks, a purity of fire aura and spending your normal ascendancy points on the warcry heal

2h or facebreaker for grandpa totems? 2h has the constant upgrading a weapon but has more gem slots plus a disfavor eventually. But facebreaker has a shield and no need for a weapon.
