Someone suggested descriptions of the ascendancy classes and I thought I'd take a crack at it. There are about a hundred caveats to each description, but I think as long as it's stressed that build variation is nearly infinite so these aren't proscribed roles it should be enough to deliver the basic ideas of each one.



These are a lot better than the low effort poo poo I had slapped in there earlier today, added them. Thanks!

Well well, mister fancy-pants, I hope you're wearing your matching sweater today, or you'll be cut down like the ugly tree you are.

Oh yeah, can a cool goon invite RighteousNoPantsLegacy to the guild? May as well get myself back in there now before the flood of players 3.0 is likely to bring.

What kind of ES totals are people getting on budget gear in 3.0? I wanna go ED as a league starter and occultist has always been the no-brainer, but I feel like life trickster (or hybrid? MOM?) may end up being better now

Would also appreciate a ginvite to dockam if there's still room, thanks

Hmm choices choices. Plain ethereal knives or 100% conversion to fire ethereal knives (ngamahu's flame) , crit or none crit. Scion looks like the winner unless frenzy charges get their spell damage back.

Today I realized that every ball of Storm Burst hits as it passes through enemies and (I assume) must roll crit chance individually. It also looks like it spams them pretty drat fast, with path of building showing 5-6 per second with no faster casting or GMP and only moderate cast speed on the tree.

Storm Burst CwC Discharge can probably be a viable thing with Voll's Protector + Devotion.

Oh now there's an idea. I wonder what the totem behavior will be for releasing Storm Burst? With Flameblast it just releases at full stacks, and with Blight and Scorching Ray it's binary on/off.

quote:

With the release of The Fall of Oriath, we're going to be changing the threshold so that you only need to deal 10% of a target's life to gain a maximum effect shock. This will make it much easier to apply Shock effects to very high health bosses, which achieves our desired goal; Lightning and Cold based characters can now apply their own ailments to bosses, but not at a strength that would make the encounter too easy without appropriate investment. This means that we can now remove all Chill and Shock immunity from end-game boss encounters. We've removed the minimum, so as long as you'd have a 1% effect with your Chill or Shock, the ailment will be displayed and will have an effect.

Also the weird split arrow jewel is out

And for those of you who are lazy, Power charge's increased critical remains, but at 40%. Frenzy charge's more global damage remains.
