TL;DR Cast dread shade, and bone curse on your golem, and hit it with very fast attacking marrow shards that hits your bone golem, pierces through your golem, and enemies, applying DR debuff, CC, and damage to all nearby enemies with a massive amount of bone golem nova projectiles. Use transplant for mobility, positioning, and executing enemies.


go to last epoch tools and make a build planner to link…

I’ve been theory crafting this build as well, but haven’t quite figured it out yet.

Overall, Good start you have.

There’s no need for a planner, he listed every possible bit of important information. If you want a planner you can easily take this information and pop it into the planner yourself.

Looks awesome man, thanks for posting it. I’ll give it a try after I give Dark’s Wraith build a try.

This build is old as fk, I played this build over 1.5 years ago

Abomination is better in almost everyway though so I wouldnt recommend it nowadays

maybe if EHG added a unique: 'When you cast Rip Blood/Marrow Shards on your golem, the attack repeats every 0.5s until your Golem dies or is unsummoned"

So one cast = infinite loop of Novas. of course will never happen, fun to dream

Putting it in a planner is much easier, the user can then play around with it and see what’s different with changes to gear/passives/etc. All the OP would have to do is to select the “upload” button on the planner rather than flip back & forth between this page & the planner.

I agree and understand the reasoning but also it’s just as valid to say “all the reader would have to do is open up the planner and use the details given in the post to make their own” both are just as easy, so I’d side on whatever the OP is comfortable doing themselves.

If you can enter all of the info on a build in 3-4 clicks, I’m missing something… I’m just saying that it takes substantially fewer clicks for the build creator to share a build via the build planner than for a random user to enter it all into the build planner.

Not 3-4, maybe 30? Haven’t counted recently, it takes all of about 10minutes to set up yourself. Which is no time at all. If someone knows well enough to ask for a planner so they can play around with a build, they should know well enough how to input the info listed here. It’s a matter of laziness at the end of the day.

If only people who posted builds could also play the game for us too, that would be way easier :joy:

Took me exactly 4 minutes.


That’s genuinely impressive, would have taken me at least 10.

Thanks, I was curious. Compared to, what, 5 seconds if you have the save file to upload?

Well, I did cheat a tiny bit, cause I started on a different Bone Golem build I had saved, and edited it. Was faster than going from scratch. Probably saved a few minutes.

I was just trying to make a useful “for everyone” suggestion. Like if he makes changes to the build he has to upload all new pictures and then people have to find them in the comments etc…so relax Kohtas

:joy: 5chars
