Marcel wrote:Overall the damage is great, but the bats are a just a bit too slow and lack AOE for endgame farming zones. You're about 1/3 the clear speed of a normal endgame build and 1/5 the speed of a top tier meta build. They're really really great for some bosses (e.g. you can farm the Invasion 1,2, and 3 riftwalkers if you want) and really terrible for some bosses (e.g. Xazix where they just hit his minions). It's close to being a build, but desperately needs support from one or two uniques (2x max bats at 1/2 damage would be amazing) and some QoL love (summon bats with 3 charges please).


ty for your sharing, and i'm looking for a build that can clear nymyr's light, void, laz.
is this build right?

Most of those are purify fights, so any build really works. This build is huge damage when you can line it up, but really really lacking in all other cases. Bosses are either trivial or basically impossible.

Winged Calamity:
*New level 80 skill, upgrades Batstrike
*Adds a Bat Attack skill to your Familiars that deals Weapon Damage in area.
Does this mean the damage of the familiars that I see in the ambush passive?

Kind of. They do a tiny aoe and have massive issues farming endgame.

That damage is their base phys damage, it also uses the ways with their boosted scaling, so what you see in ambush is but a tiny fraction of their inflicted damage (it is, in fact, huge).
The downsides are a bit of clunky play and not huge clear because 5 minions only, but don't worry about the damage, when you can apply it, they do a crapton of damage.

Many changes ! I've edited a lot of things in the main post
- Gear reccomendations
- Slightly alternate playstyle
- Video showcases (some new videos showcasing the build, another uber (belial) done quick, and some farming videos at last to show how it performs when farming)
- Skillplan

So most importantly, switch weapons seem to work. So you can charge up twice, switch weapon, release bats, switch again, charge up twice.
in other words, the cycle went from "click click summon, click click (prepare for next summoning)" to "click click switch summon switch click click".

And why the hell would I make the clunkyness slightly worse? Because

+3/4 is also a big plus. Slightly less MO space, but +100 vit on our vit-stacker, nice, and most of all with our decent hp, avoid and tons of elemental defenses, the most dangerous thing for us is definitely getting overwhelmed by a ton of physical attacks.
Getting a bit of +%defense from Laserblade in the naginata tree + getting 200'd hp back each hit (from locket) goes a LONG way to help with that.

You really are much better off with dex stacking over vit stacking. Attack rating is a huge issue, and dropping a claw offhand for Zayl's gives you 40-45% block and max res at the cost of 2 skills. I'll mess around with tempest swapping, it's probably good for bosses if nothing else (not that damage has been an issue at all).

Well I have no problem getting 35-40k AR with a mostly VIT build though? ^^' I do have some dex, its something like 25 / 75% split.
As for defences, I'd still rather have a lot more hp then 40-50% ish block (if it was the old 75%, it'd be another story)

edit : just tested some scosglen, and it worked alright, no problems whatsoever with AR. I do chug potions quite a bit, but killspeed is decent/nice with the nagi-boosted bats :mrgreen: Will make a video later on

Edited main guide with a scosglen section.
It went well and it's fun to farm but I have to say the xp and loot are inferior to a multiplayer lvl125 farm area (for instance 4 or 5 players game and farming solo in fauzt, bremm or vizjun... way more xp/loot, and same difficulty in terms of monster damage/hp). Thus I'll only go to scosglen at very high levels when lvl125 farm areas dont give any relevant xp anymore I think, if I decide to level up that high :)
