That's how both of them used to work years ago, just % increased mana cost of skills. I don't know why they changed it in the first place, since the only real abuse cases were with Zerphi's Last Breath, which got nerfed into alch shards over a year before the mana cost changes on these other uniques.

they were part of the first wave of archmage nerfs iirc

Trying to decide between Kay's minions and vortex occultist for SSF. Never done cold dot before, which build would be better T bossing?

Vortex occultist single target is kinda mediocre (unless I was playing it wrong/bad which is extremely possible)

<e> felt mediocre to me I have no idea how it actually compares to anything*

Avoid Symmetry, Allow Complexity, Introduce Terror


When I played Vortex occ a few leagues ago it felt like it hit a major damage wall until I could switch to LL. After that it was excellent, but it requires enough gear that I don't know if it would be a good pick for SSF.

I imagine this will follow the pattern where only the final map boss you kill, when it's a multi-boss, is treated like a loot pinata, for the purposes of special map boss drops.

Vortex occultist is the kinda gold standard for good consistent dps in my book, but its when you use your vaal cold snap, cold snap, and vortex on the same target that it melts.

My buddy played an Exsanguinate Champion last league that went really, really well for him. Some gear overlap with Seismic Trap (specifically Cold Iron Point early) which is unfortunate because it's looking like that'll be popular again. Unleash got nerfed a bit and exsang didn't get as much of a buff to compensate, so that's too bad. +2 amulets will be harder to come by and without Sirus as the Atlas End Boss means Crown of the Inward Eye will be more expensive. I don't think any of this is enough to kill the build, though. I hope.

But we're still almost a full week out. I'll change my mind several times between now and then. Ultimately I want something tanky enough to survive the new bosses so I'm not just getting clapped and learning nothing as I burn through six portals.

I was either playing it badly or don't really have a good feeling for "good single target dps" then, since the latter is what I was actually doing

It is explicitly not back

Although Archnemesis is like if Ultimatum were for bosses. So. Close enough?

Where did they explicitly say this? Or was it synthesized to an implicit?

Archnemesis is not close enough. I don't even think it gives individual rewards for multiple party members like Ultimatum?

This seems like a good league to mess with Battlemage. Hopefully Templar remains unpopular
