[3.24] Exsanguinate Trap Trickster

Intro & build description

It’s hard to go wrong with Exsanguinate, especially when paired with traps as they autotarget the mobs for you. Exsanguinate has a high base damage which helps during the league starts as good gear is scarce. With some currency invested, builds scales very well into the endgame. If you haven’t decided on what to play in upcoming Necropolis league, this is a good time to try this build out.

  • Great league starter
  • Cheap

Heatshiver

Heatshiver is BiS for the build. While it is not 100% necessary, it is just too strong to pass. Since item is receiving nerf, it might not be as popular, but it will be still very strong option.

Amulet

Replica Dragonfang's Flight
