Hello, this is Dr3ad from Apprentice Corner, in this forum topic, I will be going over my new build, Shadow Cascade Shift Movement Speed Focused Monolith Farmer Blade Dancer, that is not abusing the combination of Synch Strike and Shadow Cascade (infinite mana lul), so when that eventually gets nerfed, this build will still be standing, even after direct Shadow Cascade nerfs (probably). This build has been my personal favorite so far this patch already, and has gotten me through hundreds of Monoliths in a single night.
Special Shoutout to Doom Tucan who kept badgering me until I started making written guides again! If you like this post, please like, comment on the video, as well as sub to the YT channel, as its the best way for you to show your appreciation for my work!
We are using the interaction between Smoke Weaver,
Shift’s movement speed nodes,
Acid Flask proc’s from Shift
And then using the strength of Shadow Cascade, it allows us to clear monoliths at break neck speed, rivaling most other speed farming archetypes thanks to the ability to attack while also on the move. Our single target doesn’t have any issues thanks to the interactions between
causing extra shadows which will nuke most targets in the Monolith of Fate
The main nodes we want here are
So we can proc’ Acid Flask for the 2 seconds of haste, pretty much giving us 100% haste uptime in ideal situations.
so we can get even more movement speed, which is almost 100% uptime,
And finally this, which allows us to proc Shadow Cascade from our shift, and the node behind it will summon a shadow for it to consume as well!
The main nodes we want here are,
for a free 80%+ more damage from 4 nodes.
Giving us extra shadows to increase damage and AoE, and then your usual fanfare of more damage. Pretty self explanatory, also base crit is amazing for us.
The only node that is 100% mandatory (imo)
Everything else is just icing on the cake, not worth mentioning here. If you want to be a meta slave, you can run Synch Strike here instead and change Cascade to give mana back on shadow consume. But that is probs gonna get nerfed so…
Main nodes of Importance :
- Agility, movement speed to damage, pretty strong.
- Swift Assassin, lots of flat and attack speed which gives our cascade more damage.
- Critical Precision, is an insane amount of crit chance for us.
Main Nodes of Importance :
- Pursuit, Movement Speed and % damage, double dips for us.
- Flash Of Steel, more attack speed and damage.
- Weapons of Choice, insane amount of crit multiplier, main reason we are using 1 sword
and 1 dagger, instead of 2 smoke weavers.
- All In, Crit Multi is very strong for us.
- Shadow Master, insane amounts of single target damage for us.
This tunklabs is up to date, but could probably be improved. Important parts are just cooldown recovery on the helm, 2 aboreal circuits and then a Smoke Weaver. Pretty basic.
4 of these, BIS
Play this build, follow the leveling guide, until you get a Smoke Weaver and enough currency to gamble Arboreal Circuits, which just gamble these,
