↖ Stormclaw Build Overview
The Stormclaw build is all about lightning-fast attacks and annihilating your foes. It's characterized by high attack speed and incredible sustain through Vampiric Powers. When you play Stormclaw, you'll find yourself rapidly swiping through hordes of enemies and staying alive through massive life steal.
Note: While I currently use a mouse and keyboard, I'll likely switch to a controller during the season for a smoother gaming experience.
↖ Core Mechanics
Stormclaw's gameplay is straightforward yet immensely satisfying. Equip a few essential abilities and unleash a flurry of left-click attacks. The dash ability adds mobility, but you may find it unnecessary with the build's insane movement speed.
↖ Key Features of the Season 2 Stormclaw Build
Let's delve into the elements that make this build truly shine in Season 2:
- Vampiric Powers: Season 2 introduces some fantastic powers, including "Moonrise." It offers a substantial boost to basic skill damage and attack speed. Plus, with the increased attack speed, you'll be triggering two spell casts with each swipe. The healing potential with this build is exceptional, reaching up to 12% life per swipe.
- Unique Item Choices: Keep an eye out for items like Tempest Roar and Mad Wolf's Glee. These uniques offer bonuses to max life and additional damage, making them ideal for Stormclaw. Experiment with these items and see how they synergize with your build.
- Seasonal Uniques: Season 2 introduces new unique items that can significantly impact your build. Take the time to test them out and see which ones work best with your Stormclaw setup. Consider items like "Tarity" for even more healing.
↖ Skill Allocation
Here's a breakdown of the skill allocation for your Stormclaw build:
- Storm Strike and Claw: Maximize your DPS by investing as many points as possible into these primary skills.
- Shred (Optional): While Shred provides extra teleportation, you might find it unnecessary due to the high movement speed achieved in this build.
- Spirit Boons: Depending on your needs, you can focus on either Critical Strike damage, Critical Strike chance, or cooldown reduction.
↖ Paragon Boards
Achieving the ideal Paragon board setup is crucial for maximizing your Stormclaw's potential. Here's a recommended allocation:
- Spirit Glyph: Start with "Exploit" and transition to "Spirit" once you reach higher levels.
- Aspect Glyph: Prioritize "Fang and Claw," "Earth and Sky," and "Wolf Aspect" for optimal performance.
- Ancestral Glyph: Ensure you have "Werewolf" for damage to close enemies, which synergizes with your build.
↖ Equipment Recommendations
Equip the following items for your Stormclaw build:
- Weapon: "Great Staff of the Crone" is essential for this build.
- Gloves: Experiment with "Edge Masters," "Overcharged," or "Night Howlers" based on your preference.
- Armor: Look for stats like damage reduction, maximum life, and damage reduction from close enemies on your chest piece.
- Pants: Prioritize damage reduction from close enemies, total armor, and maximum life on your pants.
- Boots: Choose boots with movement speed, total armor, and either all stats or willpower.
- Amulet: Seek an amulet with movement speed, ranks of invented passive, cooldown reduction, and damage while shape-shifted.
- Rings: Opt for rings with Critical Strike chance, damage to close enemies, maximum life, and lucky hit chance.
