Deathblow Striker Build Guide for PvE

Build

required skill points: 296

This build takes only two Esoteric skills since each skill will consume all your 4 orbs at once.

The Normal skills are used to recharge your Esoteric orbs then until you’re ready to land the big one. Remember to use “Lightning Whisper” first to buff yourself and debuff your opponent before casting your main damage spenders.

Overall, it's the meta build we recommend using after getting the full Entropy set.

If this doesn't sound appealing, check out the Esoteric Flurry build instead.
