Build guide

This build is only viable for season 17 due to the inherent Legacy of Nightmares buff freeing up ring slots for Convention of Elements and Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac. All gear must be ancient for the buff to work. Hardcore players should prioritize working the Nerves of Steel passive skill into the build with the Hellfire .

In season 18 this build may work by dropping Esoteric Alteration for Legacy of Dreams, at the trade off of significant toughness.
