Hit 4 times at 200% WDM

A) What default attack are people using? I've been using Backstab as my basic attack, in between Barrier Strike and Broadside. I tried using Crucify, but it seems like its damage is just incredibly worse than Backstab spam.

B) Speaking of Backstab... can anybody explain what it is that Backstab actually does? It says it has 4 hits per attack at 200% weapon damage? That almost sounds like Zeal, but it's obviously not Zeal. And the +100% Weapon Physical Damage doesn't appear to be reflected in the character sheet numbers for non-Backstab attacks while it lasts?

B.2) I haven't put points in Execution because I've been using Backstab, as mentioned, as my basic attack, and I didn't want to end up disadvantaging myself. It seems like it turns Backstab from a basic attack into a Use Once Immediately Before Broadside buff?

C) Hades Gate has completely underwhelmed me. The cooldown leaves it unable to act as a default attack and the damage seems meh at best. 5/5 Momentum and Bloodbath should remove the cooldown, but I'm still left with it not seeming like a huge improvement over Backstab or even Crucify.


Barrier strike is the most used skill. Crufiy is something you ignore after level 10

Hit 4 times at 200% WDM. The bonus ewd is a very low duration buff that happen after attacking, not very reliable so it's hard to track on d2stats but it exists. I recommand more using execution for new players

Yes with execution you do one backstab every 10 secs (not strictly needed to bother to while farming it's mostly for bosses)

Hades Gates is strong especially in 125 rifts but scale down later and don't have the damage (read : the multihit) to clear well in like scos. I wouldn't say the skill is amazingly strong but it should be years above crucify

Hello gamers,

Trying out some builds in 2.7 and found myself a zkt. Was wondering, in the end game build list of zkt, you are showing two of the same build pictures while talking about two different builds (farm vs bossing). Is this on purpose? Since lets for example u are talking about hades gate while the builds shown dont have a point in it? I get it, 1 builds had anathema and the other dont but the rest is identical

To add to this, was wondering if i should go max hades gate and zero points broadside for a farming set up or if you get proper items, is 1 point hades gate enough to farm? Playing ssf so cant relocate my skills/attributes that often, thats why im asking ;) also English is not my native language so bear with me :D

Cheers, awesome builds nonetheless

lmao I understood what happened
I had another picture for farming (which remove broadside and specialization points to add melee devotion, 1 hades gate, 5 momentum, and max way of the spider) but I guess at some point I made another picture of the bossing spec to remove anathema (because the skill was useless before this patch, the guide isn't updated) and replaced the wrong picture, now the old farming one is lost.

To reply, yeah hades gate is best kept at 1 point, the damage doesn't go up more than maxing another way and the mana cost skyrocket. The important part is the upgrade that remove the cd

I went ZKT 3 seasons in a row, then went SSF mode last season and found 3 Frysts, the nagi set, but no ZKT.
Having to use what I could find, I was very surprised by how good the nagi set is… it’s really, really good. The key is to ignore the supposed Poison element of it (forget Ways and pierce) and embrace the weapon damage.
I switched out of SSF mode this season and am doing very well with the nagi set.
