Intro & build description
Melee build with massive area of effect damage thanks to Vaal Reave. If hitting almost full screen of mobs while maintaining huge damage and insanely fast clear speed is something you would enjoy, check this build out. Works great as league starter as well. The only downside is, you will have to switch reave for blade flurry for certain highest endgame content like shaper, guardians or uber atziri.
- Satisfying to play
- Fast-paced action
- Very reliable damage and defense wise
- Shock immunity
- Scales very well with currency invested
- For tougher encounters, you have to swap in Blade Flurry instead of Reave
