Thanks for making this build and giving it some light, hehe. Well done.

This is one of my favorite builds so far! It just melts once you get it dialed in and I still need the sword! Not to be greedy :wink:, but did you make a loot filter for this build? Thanks for the hard work, your builds rock!

I have not made a lootfilter for this build :frowning:

You cant run dual daggers on sentinel class. The offhand weapon is a sword.

I realized that immediately after posting lol. Looks like a dagger visually. :stuck_out_tongue:

Build is absolutely ripping through things atm, just level 60, but it feels very good.

One thing I do think is a legit question though- why the one point in lunge that gives you 5 armor per point of dex? I see this all the time in builds that have zero dexterity and Im just confused.

This might just be a mistake… usually the extra point in a skill is to get to something else in the tree but in this case I cannot see what @boardman21 needs it for…

Just leftovers from a previous build. Switch it to extra charge

Is there any specific way to farm large idols? Or anyone who sells them?

The only way to get them is to kill mobs, you can get a buff to their drop rate from one of the Fall of the Outcasts blessings, but idols aren’t sold at vendors.

There have been several more than viable Smite builds.

So I don’t think I fully get how to use volatile reversal well, and I know you mentioned other skills, sigils would eat mana, but would rings give it more survivability on the big hits? For now I am just pursuing the build exactly as you laid it out. 75 and kicking but, still can’t hit 80 in arena, keep getting nuked at wave 79 lol.

Volatile reversal.takes some getting used to. Ring oh shields can help. It can give you more armor and the shields themselves can block ranged attacks.

I have run this build and it is very powerful :rofl:
fast movement speed makes farming a lot of fun.

but since haven’t invested in armor or dodge, need to be mindful of evasive maneuvers.

Thanks Boardman, it’s really fun to play with it.

what skills does void damage over time help? just wondering why you chose that affix for your helm

It should only affect Smite’s Fissure node (& Abyssal Decay and Time Rot), unless Boardman knows something I don’t. It shouldn’t affect Future Strike since though that is an ailment, it’s not a DoT (which is why it can crit).
