which build do you recommend?
this build or the one that was created last month?

Depemds what you wamt to do. If your only wantimg to push arena, nothing beats this build. If you want just echo running and monolith of fate corruption building just play last months version

what is the main difference between the builds?

I want smooth sailing farming like monolith, not a lot stopping and casting.

this is arena specific, just cuz of the root.
super lazy arena build, very tempting.

I’m not entirely sure you could call anything that hits wave 1,000 in the arena lazy.

Tunk got zombies in his build, can you add that tree too please?

Taunt will be nerfed next patch, probably end of the month. Unsure it’s worth tuning the build before the patch. :wink:

Im not sure what tunk’s zombie tree looks like :frowning:

Will this build good after nerfs or I must look to another builds?)

The build itself will still be good.

As for what all gets nerfed, not 100% sure.

Dread shade will do less for us. Taunt will be less powerful. other than that should be good.

Why doesn’t the skeleton have an ice arrow?
