[Version 0.1.09729] A guide for Knight focusing on astral retribution meteors to kill the entire map in a few click
The build is focusing on the legendary ” EARTHBREAK “.
Wich mean you will not be able to play it without this item.
There is another legendary that is not mandatory, but will help tremendously with the gearing process.
and this is the legendary bracers ” Damasius Awarness ”
since it let you have around 50% crit chance on your gear to be optimal instead of 70/75%.
Now that you are aware of the mendatory item you need let start with the guide.
– Very strong (kill and entire room in 2 -3 click)
– Very fast farming (you just walk in a room and everything died)
– Insane AoE
– I’m singin’ in the rain
– Relient on a specific Legendary to work
– Really squishy on rift start without the right set of legendaries
– No mouvement speed apart from the gear
– Meteor doesn’t leech life ,and grapplingling hook having a 2 sec CD this mean you have a 2 sec CD on your leech life so you need to be extra carefull.
The most powerful sword is ok too
Sword of the nimble warrior can be use at the start if you dont have enough crit chance and/or ancestral strike chance
– single target : chain link
– AoE/farming : Long chain
– Captain Hook
– Gather Intel
– Shining star
-Miracle : Head Slam
basically every ancestral strike grappling hook’s doing, an Astral meteors proc thanks to the “earthbreak” legendary.
since we are playing captain hook we can gather all the room in once and with enough crit chance and ancestral strike chance you will see a LOT of meteors falling down on everyone
Chain link can be better on single target thanks to “enhanced luck” trait from the specialization letting you chain a lot of grappling hook when you are lucky, but long chain will be much faster overall.
Secondary skill can be whatever you want
Personally i play with the elder lance for the align the star trait from rank 2
The other rank doesn’t matter
You can play more defensively with creste shield
The others rank doesn’t matter
You juste need to have it in one of your skiils slots to always have minimum 15 % blocks
– Astral Descent
– Elder Retribution
– Astral repercussion
– To Glory
– Blessed Strike
– Rain of Meteors
– enhanced Luck
All the damage multiplier come from here, with Astral Descent and Armageddon, and we get A lot of proc thanks to Rain of Meteors to double our meteor procs and Blessed Strike to get the proc in the first place .
all the reste are little bonuses
Get to rank 30 to get
Then everything else on Savagery
Big damage buff on demande
Some stat cause why not
Gear Stat Priority
Mana & Life Leech, one roll of each, aim to get these on epic stats to free up important magic/rare stats.
Critical chance depand on if you have the damasius awarness legendary or not, you should aim for 50/55% crit on your gear with the legendary (see on the gif at the end i am at 52% critical strike chance and its more than enough) and 70/75% whitout
Once you have the required crititical chance the reste goes as follow :
ancestral strike chance on every gear/slot that can have it
Damage to Elites
Maximum Life (flat and %)
does not really matter since we are not using the damage from the skill itself, you can use mastery levels to fill in the skills mastery until they’re high enough without.
fury until rank 30 then everything else on savagery
canot be played whitout.
thats what makes grappling hook procs astral meteors so no build whitout this item
higly impactful legendaries
Damasius Awareness [bracers]
Free up a lot critical strike chance slots on gear .
Inextricable tourment [belt]
Help a lot in survivability especially on rift start when Gather intel (rank 3 from grappling hook) didn’t stack yet.
GOOD TO HAVE
Young phoenix feather [helmet]
a nice cheat death , always good to have.
Swift wings of hermesal [chest]
to get a lot more uses from the fury atribute 30 rank
how to play
then just use your grappling on everything to see the apocalipse rain down on everyone , juste be carefull when you dont have the gather intel stack up you can very easily be one shoted.
dont forget to use your Ascention on cd to get the fury attributes bonus
