Still cant find the build your looking for?

Join my Discord and use the !Search function in the Search bot channel to find any build it is your looking for by name/creator/tier rating/class/master/skill/patch and more!

I have build it almost the same like you. But why do you take the spirit Claws note in druid tree instead of 5 more points in vale Warrior?

Awesome build theory once again, Mr. Boardman21. I’ve been watching a lot of content you’ve made. Gotten lot of build ideas from you and your videos!

I’d really want to jump into this build if the Entangling Roots bug would be fixed, let’s hope EHG reacts to this issue. But even without it, build is perfectly fine. The intro in the video really shows the tankiness

Cause I can :slight_smile:

So there is no specific reason for it? Normally there is always a reason you do Something specific that i dont understand or dont even think about it :sweat_smile:
Just a mistake? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Cause the healing effictiveness would Help even more. Same for Minion dmg :thinking:

No reason, when i Respec’d probly just missed it. Vale warrior will do you much better as the spell/melee physical damage for ourselves is pretty useless in this setup

so i shouldent level on this build?
from 0

sry think i misunderstood,thougt vale warrior was another build

hmm, it feels like a lot was lost when werebear cold not cast entangling roots cheaper.
The idols that focused mostly to scale Spriggan damage are out.
And there is a switch to dodge rather than armour.
Is it me or the damage went down a lot overall.
And no more shield , so did the tankines also go down?

The Damage will be back to its “normal” amount once entangling roots is fixed and the spriggan gains another 20 spell physical flat and 100% Cast speed.

I would level the 1 to 75 werebear version and then transition sometime after the campaign after you have found some gear

ok thx,i will try that.
is that the old vertion?
never mind found it with google :slight_smile:
ahhh its a melee build,think i stay with this one then.

So it would then be again an S tier build?

This fix is really needed. The Spriggan is a shadow of his former self without it.

Aren’t the Raindance unique boots interesting for this build?

If you decide to run maelstrom and ltos of dodge i suppose they could work well.

I believe the bug for roots may possibly be fixed? (I only just started the game and read the patch notes that may pertain to it). So where can I see where to go on the entangling roots tree? do I look at the previous version of this build you posted and follow the tree for roots from there?

Welcome to the community!
I will post a picture soon. But yes just take it as it was before with all the spriggan goodies!

Since I’m not maxed level, I’m extending roots duration so I cast it less times (dont have enough points to put on shaman passives yet), and still have 2 points that im still playing with it, testing enlarging roots area or chance to bleed/poison so if you still dont have enough mana regen like me I guess you can try this.

I tried entangling roots , but I think it needs one more mana regen on the other ring.
I just never have enough mana. And I have 17 mana regeneration
and I have 2xT5 and one T4 mana regen items
But besides that , the build went from being an autocast walking around relaxing build to having to play FPS to target the spriggan with blessing and stay close to it so it is within entangling roots.
Feels like FPS tetris at the moment and honestly not fun to play any more.

So if you could recommends another S rank facetank with a pet that does everything for you , please do.
