↖ New Features
Before we dive into the build, let's briefly discuss some new features and aspects that play a crucial role in this setup. Keep an eye out for these elements as they contribute to the build's success.
- Coven's Fangs: Enhances your conjuration companion minions and bat familiar attacks, dealing 52% more damage to crowd-controlled enemies. It also provides a 30% chance to inflict Vampiric Curse, setting the stage for our DOT damage.
- Prey on the Weak: Grants a 16% damage boost against vulnerable enemies. Vulnerable status is now additive, so we don't need Frost Nova to apply it.
- Feed the Coven: Provides a 44% chance to inflict Vampiric Curse, which can also spread to nearby enemies. This introduces additional damage possibilities through the Vampiric Curse.
- Flowing Veins: Grants 60% increased damage over time to moving enemies or those affected by Vampiric Curse. This significantly boosts our DOT damage output.
- Feed the Coven (Resource): Conjuration, companion minions, and bat familiar attacks have a 60% chance to restore 10 primary resources and increase our damage output by 10% for 4 seconds.
- Anticipation Node: This is a great alternative if resource generation isn't an issue for you. It provides cooldown reduction and damage bonuses based on the number of enemies affected by your DOT effects.
- Battle Casters Aspect: A new source-specific aspect that enhances your conjuration skills. It's essential for boosting your skill ranks, which is crucial in this build.
- Aspect of Engulfing Flames: Increases burning damage significantly. When enemies are below 50% health or under the influence of your DOT effects, they receive up to a 150% bonus burning damage.
- Unique Rings: New rings provide unique effects that can lead to DOT explosions, enhancing your damage output.
