Intro & build description
One of the most popular cookie-cutter builds there is, and for a good reason as it performs very well with next to no investment and scales great with invested currency and it won’t be any different in the upcoming Forbidden Sanctum league. If you are not sure what to play, why not go with a build that has proven itself time and time again?
- Very good single and AOE damage
- Quite mobile
- Can be played as league starter
- Not the fastest build around
