So right from the get go when we first got our hands on build calculator a few years ago, I had plans to go with what is now...
This was before I knew that they would end up being "cookie cutter" builds. Now post 1.2 both builds I hear will be pretty much obsolete. So now I'm looking at more options.
So first things first, I love PvP. PvP is what keeps me coming back to play a game day after day, not PvE. So obviously I am looking for a decent PvP set up, however i do like to grind mobs occasionally to relax and make extra cash from drops etc. (hence the Cultist build). I really had my heart set on Reaper because it fit my play style so well, high burst/crit, kiting "glass cannon" is what i love to play.
Typically I try to stay away from "cookie cutter" builds but, I really would love to make Reaper (and maybe the Cultist) work somehow even with me hearing rumors that it is bad now. So is Reaper (or Cultist) still viable or do I need to plan for something else?
As far as other options go, I was thinking maybe...
I really like the shadow mage concept but I can be flexible.
I would prefer responses from players who have had interaction with these builds in game, but any constructive criticisms/opinions/suggestions are encouraged!
