Nightblade + Necromancer

A poison dealing assassin class character with the ability to weave in and out of battle while unleashing their barrage of skills they have available to them. Poison damage can be very strong, but it does also imply more of a DOT damage type (Damage Over Time). Our combination of skills and devotions make this a serious contender as a support damage class in group play, but also a capable damage build for solo play.

While poison damage is not a common damage type to use, we will make every effort to use every poison type skill and devotion at our availability. Starting with the devotions, this build has one of the largest pool of devotions that are tied to a skill that I have made. Nearly all the devotions add poison damage, and the ones tied to skills enhance the skill to deal even more poison type damage. The Deathguard set is one of the poison centered sets in the game, and we use it here to combine our Necromancer class with our Nightblade class, converting other damage types to poison or acid when having all 4 pieces equipped. Lastly for our skills, Dual Blades, Veil of Shadows, Merciless Repertoire and Bone Harvest are the center points of the build that really bring it to the next level. This is also one of the easier builds to gear into as there are no rare items to try and find with a specific suffix/prefix. All pieces are legendary which make them a lot easier to find and use.

This will be your starting class, we focus into many different skills so let’s break it down. Dual Blades will allow you to dual wield immediately into the game, the following skills in Dual Blade enhance it’s abilities. The Veil of Shadows tree is another really important segment of the build as it reduces the enemies ability to defend themselves. Shadow Strike is a nice movement perk that deals decent damage, but there are better damage skills available. Focus on the mastery bar and unlocked each skill as you go along. Dual Blade and Night’s Chill should be prioritized in this process as well. 

This will be your secondary class, focusing on Bone Harvest as this will be another main damage source in this build. It has some strong passive abilities that add on to our default attacks. We also use Mark of Torment to deal with single target enemies effectively. While we take many more skills in Nightblade, there should be an equal focus on Bone Harvest while unlocking the Nightblade class.
