This build is provisionally vetted good pending more votes.

This build has received a provisional rating in the range from 3.75 to < 4.75 and thus qualifies for the lower category of working builds: Good.

This build has been designed for the following use:

Hero team build for a dervish player relying on Fevered Dreams; designed to make use of a dervish's ability to apply plenty of short-lasting conditions on adjacent and nearby targets. It will work fine for most hard mode content such as explorable areas, missions, most dungeons and the winds of change questline, but struggle in areas such as the domain of anguish, the underworld and slaver's exile.

In order to function properly the build requires exploitable corpses.
