[3.23] Impale Bladefall Trickster

Intro & build description

Do you want a single character that can do all content, kill all pinnacle bosses as well as thrive in Ultimatums in the upcoming Affliction Challenge league? Impale Bladefall Trickster might be the perfect build for you.

Regarding Wildwood Ascendancies, Wildwood Primalist looks like the clear choice as it is the most versatile ascendancy and allows us to build “your own ascendancy” based on your playstyle.

Build Pros

  • Great league starter build
  • Very defensive
  • Very high damage
  • Insanely strong boss killer build
  • Fast clear speed

Build Cons

  • Entropic Devastation (core item) can be expensive

Helmet

Rare

Rare Helm with high energy shield and resistances. Consider a helm with reservation efficiency to help out with the mana reservation.


Body Armour

The Restless Ward

Perfect and quite cheap body armour for trickster as it perfectly synergizes with the ascendancy we are running.

Use any rare chest with evasion and elemental resistances until you find or purchase The Restless Ward.


Gloves

Entropic Devastation

Our core item which allows our Bladefall to impale the targets. It can be quite expensive, but build can be played without it as well, until you farm up enough currency to purchase the gloves.


Boots

Rare Boots

Rare boots with high energy shield, movement speed and at least 50% chance to avoid elemental ailments.

Paired with Ancestral Vision Jewel, we are immune to elemental ailments.


Left Ring

Rare Ring

Important!

We require % reduced mana cost of skills on our ring paired with “Non-channeling skills have -# to total mana cost” in order to spam Bladefall.

Rest of the stats depend on what is lacking, but I suggest going for cast speed, maximum energy shield and elemental resistances.


Right Ring

Rare Ring

Stats on ring depend on what is lacking.

I suggest going for cast speed, maximum energy shield, elemental resistances or critical strike multiplier.


Amulet

Replica Dragonfang's Flight

I would consider this amulet core item for the build, as there is almost nothing else that compares to the damage we get from +3 to all Bladefall gems.

Depending on popularity of the build, this amulet can be expensive.


Belt

Rare Belt

Prioritize a belt with increased maximum energy shield, elemental resistances and reduced flask charges used.


1Hand Weapon

Rare Wand

Rare wand with global critical strike multiplier, spell damage and all physical spell damage skill gems or all spell skill gems, depending on which one is easier to acquire.

Absolute BiS wand would combine them both for total of + 2 skills.


Offhand

Rare Shield

Rare shield with spell suppression, evasion, high energy shield.

For damage mods, look for chance to deal double damage or increased spell critical strike chance.


Jewel

Watcher's Eye

Look for “Impales you inflict last 2 additional hits while using pride” and for spell damage suppression while affected by grace.

We socket the jewel next to the Fervour and Heartseeker notables.


Jewel

Ancestral Vision

Ancestral Vision can be socketed in any free jewel socket. Paired with boots, it should make us immune to elemental ailments.


Jewel

Impossible Escape

Socket it next to Frenetic and Infused notables.


Jewel

Elegant Hubris

Elegant Hubris is socketed in the jewel socket next to the scion start to allocate Gemling Training, Eternal Fervour, Eternal Bloodlust.


Jewel

Medium Cluster Jewels

Medium cluster jewels that grant Increased Critical Strike Chance.

– Precise Retaliation
– Pressure Points


Jewel

Large Cluster Jewels

Large cluster jewels that grant Increased Physical Damage.

– Battle-Hardened
– Force Multiplier
– Iron Breaker


Jewel

Rare Jewel

1. Reduced Mana Cost of Skills (Important!!!)
2. Critical Strike Multiplier for Spell Damage
3. Increased Maximum Energy Shield
4. Elemental Resistances


Flask

Flask Setup

1. Enduring Eternal Mana Flask of the Sorcerer (Important!!!)
2. Plentiful Quartz Flask of the Hummingbird
3. Chemist’s Diamond Flask of the Antelope
