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.
- Great league starter build
- Very defensive
- Very high damage
- Insanely strong boss killer build
- Fast clear speed
- Entropic Devastation (core item) can be expensive

Rare Helm with high energy shield and resistances. Consider a helm with reservation efficiency to help out with the mana reservation.
Body ArmourThe 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.
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.
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 RingRare Ring
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 RingRare Ring
Stats on ring depend on what is lacking.
I suggest going for cast speed, maximum energy shield, elemental resistances or critical strike multiplier.
AmuletReplica 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.
Prioritize a belt with increased maximum energy shield, elemental resistances and reduced flask charges used.
1Hand WeaponRare 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.
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.
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.
Ancestral Vision can be socketed in any free jewel socket. Paired with boots, it should make us immune to elemental ailments.
Socket it next to Frenetic and Infused notables.
Elegant Hubris is socketed in the jewel socket next to the scion start to allocate Gemling Training, Eternal Fervour, Eternal Bloodlust.
