LF Master of Shadows Build
Hey! im looking for a good master of shadows build! i cant find a Build. Start spells and good other spells for Al'Ar. and please talents. calculator (sorry for my english xd)
@Durokian1337 When you say "start spells," do you mean low level spells or the best spells to begin crafting a build with?
Here's my two cents on the RE, from my experience:
- Your #1 limiting factor is energy. Find ways to increase your available energy or energy regeneration. You could do 2/2 Vigor talent to increases maximum energy by 30 or 1x rare Vigor RE to increase maximum energy by 20. 5/5 Malice talent pairs well with Master of Shadows, causes Garrote and Rupture ticks to grant 5 energy. 3/3 Focused Attacks talent pairs well, too, causing any criticals (spell or attack) to generate energy. 3/3 Combat Potency talent isn't bad, causing successful off-hand attacks to generate energy, but only procs from off-hand attacks (I like Focused Attacks better because the shadow spells you cast can proc it, too). 3/3 Vitality talent increases energy regeneration by 40% at all times and 1/1 Adrenaline Rush talent can give you an energy boost in a pinch.
- Your #2 limiting factor is mana. If you run out of mana, you can't utilize the shadow damage you get from Master of Shadows procs. I have found Seal of Wisdom ability, Judgement of Wisdom ability and 3/3 Judgements of the Wise talent to be enough to keep my mana going to cast spells.
- Focus on other RE's that can combine physical attacks and shadow spells, reduce the mana cost of spells or make casting spells in melee easier (either instant cast spells or spell haste). My favorite epic RE's to pair with Master of Shadows are Shadow Strikes (causes melee attacks to proc the Nightfall talent for free, instant cast Shadow Bolt), Growing Corruption (causes Seed of Corruption explosions to apply Corruption), Mindburn (increases Shadowburn by 25% and triggers Darkness talent to cast Mind Blast), and Dusk Till Dawn (makes Shadowburn a casted AoE). My favorite rare RE's to pair with Master of Shadows are 3/3 Restorative Shadows (causes Shadow Bolt and Mind Blast to generate energy), 3/3 Stab in the Dark (increases Shadow Bolt damage based on attack power) and 3/3 Nightfall (increases chance to proc Nightfall by 6%).
- Make sure to pick up 5/5 Mental Quickness talent to increase spell damage based on attack power and consider 3/3 Mental Quickness RE to increase that. Consider 3/3 Mental Dexterity talent to increase melee attack power based on Intellect and 50% of Intellect as spell damage.
