Mechanics and Playstyle

  • First, apply Decrepify to enemies. This maximizes cooldown reduction and weakens their attacks.
  • Begin by using Bone Spear to create a corpse. Alternatively, generate a corpse using Blood Mist.
  • Maintain your Essence by alternating between Bone Spear and Bone Splinters. This method also boosts your critical strike chance.
  • Use Corpse Tendrils whenever it's ready. This triggers the Offensive Aspect of Grasping Veins.
  • Use Blood Mist only when necessary. It clears crowd control and harmful effects, but its slower movement can be risky.
  • For regular enemies, use a quick attack strategy. For tougher foes, engage from a distance, considering tools like Corpse Tendrils for added control.
  • When facing elites or bosses, position them near walls or objects. This lets you bounce your Bone Spear for maximum impact.
