Notes: Damage boost against Warriors

A physical ritualist build to attempt to avoid the failings of dagger-based builds. It mostly doesn't make a difference.

Creatures you create have 52% more Health, and weapon spells you cast last 52% longer.

Template code

  • Barbarous Slice Barbarous Slice WTB non-stance IMS. Use over Sever Artery if you think you can pull it off for bigger spikes (haha).

In AB/FA, replace Resurrection Signet with:

  • Hamstring Hamstring for a snare.
  • Savage Slash Savage Slash for an interrupt and quick spike finisher.

You aren't completely useless when SS is stripped (just mostly) so you can sorta not really consider dropping SBS for one of the above variants.
