CD EF just wasn't cutting it over my other weapons when I was testing it multiple times over and over again.

...O_o? ... I trust that you did have FiTL/Wall of Light in your build while doing this?
I'm not defending that EF is the best weapon but... just asking ...


It's a tradeoff. +150dex vs. +.25aps. It all depends on how you are geared.

At the moment, when I was testing it, my rares were giving me more juice.

SoJ = wow! !!

I actually lost 56k pdps but I am just about able to take down most elites in 1 cycle! The ones that take 2-3 are shielding, reflect, and nightmarish or extra health.

I'd have to say that taking 15 seconds to down a pack compared to 1 min+ before that this is easily the most powerful build I've ever used in game.

Takes some time to master the execution of skills but when you get it right... :-)


I told you! :D

Yeah, your stats say you can definitely do it in my eyes. Sometimes it's hard to pull it off because the mobs around it dies before I down the yellow or there are other annoying things that can prevent you from killing it in 5 seconds, but it's all good. Fun stuff.

I think this build is excellent. I'm using it on MP10 solo now. Killing elites are very easily. I will try to replace my MH marquise emerald to marquise ruby later. I saw you changed to SW cyclone. Is it because you use WKL right?

Of course, I need to "Thanks" to "Fitz" offering this original Nirvana build on the forum.

I don't understand how you manage to keep things alive long enough to kill the elite. I seem to drop one bell and everything is dead and i lose my spirit regen.

:(.

Nice.

Ruby is definitely better for the builds that use bell as the main dmg dealer.

I changed to SW Cyclone on the VOTA spec because I wanted more sustainability. No WKL for this spec.

First line in OP dude.

Thanks. THere can be other variants depending on the playstyle. I usually use WOL SOJ over other ones if I'm using bell.

How about Topaz for some thorn dmg? That should be GG.

It's very tricky. Pulling this off in action is actually the hardest part I would say. haha You have to strategically FoF the mobs that are on the opposite side of the unique mob or aim the bells at the edge of the unique to avoid killing the mobs around that's giving you the spirit regen.

Its really the hardest part. They are dying too fast :(

I've tried Sunkeeper for this build - it works well. With high dex, 90%CD and 10% against elites - it costs much cheaper than dps equivalent rare mace (7 euros instead of 50 on eu-rmah for top stuff, e.g.) - and produces 10% dmg less to white mobs :)

My profile is showing my new SKorn set up. It downed the pack within 1 cycle as well. Seems a little easier with this set up. SOJ on.

Using CS to bring them in is the best way to gather mobs, and a soj with cold doesn't hurt ether. With the right pieces you can get 70%+ crit chance So bringing up the lower end of the damage with rubies really helps to crit in the millions.

Awesome ! Well done. I always wondered why some people say 2H Nirvana = fail.

Well because the dmg multipler from blinding flash depends on attack speed; thus higher attack speed has the counter-intuitive higher edps with flash up. Its a bug imho. Also you can't take advantage of main being high dmg + ruby + high attack speed while the offhand is a meh dmg, LS, 210CD, dex weapon.

@op
That is a nice burst on a stationary rare that does not get kb as much. What are the solo mp10 vota clear times?

It's using the synergy of Breath of Heaven INfused with light and Way of Hundred Fists Fist of Fury. You get infinite spirit regen for 5 seconds if you hit +2 mobs with FoF.

common problem, frankly and it the downside to this build... I usually just DS directly to the elite hauling some trash behind hopefully, activate on the trash, then turn around and let bells fly at the E. I have to try to activate on something that isn't taking the full bells treatment; also, I had to keep FoT:Q on my bar for the nirvana downtime to keep alive...

works OK for me

I find this build hard to use without Sweeping winds to help with damage during downtime and more important the life steal for sustain. Why not just keep your mantra or SW and use FOT:TC for better dps during downtime and a short dash to mobs?
