ive been playing median for years and years (on and off) and ive never done samAel. still i have a feeling that i completed the game :)

This maelstrom assa is defo a top notch cheap farmer build that is definitely usable, like a lot of builds who are farm builds.

I know that Samael has been killed before with storm crows and batstrike (possibly noctule?), and labs were cleared by trap and claw sin. Maelstrom is just 1 of the many skills (and builds) of an assassin, and doesnt define the class on its own.

Which brings me up to a question about this build: Can Storm Crows be used with this build as a single-target ability, or is said build simply too different(Especially with the buffs to the Ways coming to 1.4)?

Storm crows is a weapon damage build, maelstrom is not, its very different.

How would Storm Crows compare to a orb of annihilation sin? What are the differences between maelstrom and storm crows build wise?

You concentrate on weapon damage instead of dex and leech over LAEK

Storm Crows is only for single target, compared to OoA and maelstrom. Maelstrom focuses more on Dex and Laek, while Storm Crows relies on weapon damage more and Dex both (similar to 1h melee Necro), and some LL.

Added a video. This should help all the maelstromsin wannabes with some tricks to farm dunc with trash gear :) I will try to record more in the near future. Sorry about the quality, I only have an ssd, and it doesnt have the storage to record 720p videos. And if anyone knows why that black border is there at the right side, let me know, I am newbie to this :)
