I tried your other Lich build and can’t stay in Reaper Form long enough due to missing healing effectiveness affix.
Does it build work better that I can stay in Reaper form longer?

Well i dont know about longer but this build does Leech so as long as your attacking you should stay in it

Great Guide, Thank you!

Trouble is that the decay because faster and faster therefore comes a moment when we don’t leech enough to sustain the huge amount of decay. :wink:

I take it the current Loot filter is not working?

Welcome to the community!

It should be working. What issue?

Was just wondering, since I noticed you been updating them on some of your guides ^^

Great and detailed guide, some things changed in last patch though (in Lich tree u need different queue when putting points, cuz they mixed the requirements for some passives).

Anyway, very smooth and easy leveling, really hard to die if u pump up your health a bit, capping all res with this build is pretty easy, u have huge boost for necrotic from Acolyte tree, u have another huge boost for both poison and necrotic from reaper form.

Also, it’s pretty easy to transition into permanent Aura of Decay variants.

Thanks Boardman!

Is there a more up to passive date tree for this for 0.8.2.l?

I havent gone back through this guide to change the passives around. You can respec easily in LE though so just testing stuff out wont set ya back at all :slight_smile:

Its on the list to get updated soon :slight_smile:

okay great thanks! Some of the stuff I was worried around seem to have just moved around in the tree. I was looking for Crippling insight but it’s further down in the tree. I took Dance with the dead instead and grabbed crippling insight later
