Garl’s Warlock Hellbringer Fury PvE Build [Mod 10.5]
Scourge Warlock – Hellbringer Fury PvE Build – Mod 10.5
Welcome – This is the Mod 10.5 Updated Build for the Hellbringer Fury Warlock. This build will dish out some hardcore DPS while still being able to take a few hits. Don’t get me wrong, you will still be a glass cannon, but the new mechanics of Pillar of Power does provide us some mitigation. With the recent “fix” to Tyrannical Threat, the Warlock has lost loads of DPS. However, don’t get too discouraged. We can still handle our own and do a pretty decent job. Also, if you need to contact me to ask questions or just have general feedback. Please, contact me by either my Youtube channel or Twitter. I try to check the comments here as often as I can.. but those two ways will be the best option at this time.
Race – Tiefling / Dragonborn / Human – All 3 will be viable Races to play. Just remember, if you do choose a Human, you will gain an extra 3 feat points.
Stats – CHA/CON – You want to get high initial rolls in both CHA/CON – Then build full CHA/CON throughout leveling up
Gear – Best in Slot is going to be the Relic Armor. Eventually the Vivified Relic Armor when you can get all pieces and get them upgraded. The stats are all Power/Crit/Defense so you will have to make up the lost ArmorPen with either enchants or mount insignias. The added DPS from using an Everfrost potion just can’t be matched by anything else at this point.
Weapon / Offhand – The Relic Weapons will currently be Best in Slot. The grind is long and painful.. but the reward is well worth the effort.
On your weapon you want to put Hellish Rebuke +12% Damage
On your offhand you want to go with Flames of Empowerment for the added DPS
Rings – Ring of Rising Precision & Ring of Rising Power +5 would be Best in Slot for the two offensive slots. However, you can use +4 rings just as well.
3 Piece Set – Best in Slot is going to be the Orcus Set. (Neck, Belt, Artifact) DPS increase of over 10%
Artifacts – Wheel of the Elements & Sigil of the Devoted in your Active Main Slot. Thayan Book of the Dead and Tiamat’s Orb. If you don’t have access to these, You can always substitute Lantern of Revelations or any other Artifact with Power/Crit/ArmorPen
Enchantments – This is going to be up to you and what your character needs. You need to have 60% Armor Penetration, as close to 100% Crit Chance as you can get.. Then you can stack Power. I personality use all Radiants in Offensive Slots.. and all Darks in Defensive Slots. Power + Lifesteal – You can use all Brutals if you want to split stats between Power/Crit.. but they can be a bit more expensive.
Armor Enchantment – We are going to be using the Transcendent Negation. 30% Damage Resistance, 10% Incoming Healing Bonus (Works with Lifesteal) and 10% Recovery. You can’t go wrong with it. Works wonders for this build. Pure Tankage!
Weapon Enchantment – We are going to be using the Transcendent Dread. You can still use the Trans Vorpal and I am still testing what will actually be best.. both either of them will work just fine. Remember, Crit Severity does actually have a cap.
4/5 Energizing Curse
3/3 Weapon Mastery
3/3 Empowered Rituals
5/5 Determined Casting
2/5 Blood Pact
3/3 Devastating Crit
Total 20 Points – If you roll a Human you will gain an extra 3 points that you can either place in Blood Pact to make it 5/5 or place it in Soul Reaping 3/3 if needed. Also, Scornful Curse 3/3 is another great option.
5/5 Critical Promise
5/5 Gatekeeper’s Empowerment
5/5 Executioner’s Gift
5/5 Murderous Flames
1/1 Creeping Death
5/5 Hope Stealer
5/5 Hellish Condemnation
5/5 Dark Revelry
Total 41 Points
At-Wills – Hellish Rebuke / Hand of Blight (Can Sub Dark Spiral Aura for AP Gain if needed)
Encounters – Killing Flames / Pillar of Power / Fiery Bolt
Personal – Flames of Empowerment / All Consuming Curse
Daily’s – Tyrannical Threat / Brood of Hadar
All should be maxed with 4 points in each as soon as possible.
Below will be a Spell Rotation Guide – Or you can click HERE for link.
Legendary Pet – 3 different options will be available. If you can’t afford to get the top end of the market stuff. You can go with the Air Archon. If you can afford the top end of the market, then the Fire Archon is also an option. However, my personal opinion is the best companion for any DPS class in the game is the Con Artist. It costs 2 gold, has 2 offensive slots, 1 defensive slot, 3 ring slots.
Rank 12 Bondings Stones – I also chose to go with Sudden Crit, Sudden Brute, and Sudden Lifesteal as my 3 ring choices. All stacking either Radiant or Darks. +5 Rings would be Best, but +4 will work as well. What makes this companion so special is one of his effects is a 10% debuff. Can’t go wrong with that. It also stacks.. so if you have 3 people in your party using it.. 30% debuff on top of every other debuff.
Other Active Pets – Owlbear / Air Archon / Siege Master / Erinyes
Boons – All are more in depth in the video.
I view mounts as sort of a “bonus” system to make up for missing stats. As far as combat power goes.. if you are lucky enough to have a Legendary Mount, I would suggest the Tenser’s Disc for the 10% DPS increase. As far as mount powers go, if you are lucky enough to have 2 Legendary Mounts.. The Black Ice Warhorse for the 4k Power is a must. If you don’t.. any 2k Power Mount is fine as well.
Insignia Bonus can be used at your liking. However, I find this to be the best set up currently. More in depth in the video.
