F.Pick, Iron Rose, Nayr’s, Guardian’s set, Trag’Ouls set, Dayntee’s and RoRg in cube, krysbin and coe equipped. Squirts, nems, and your choice of DR/damage boost in any of the 6 slots that Trag uses.
Setup for poison damage and keep the bonus rolling. You’ll have 8-9m hp, 2bn toughness, heal to full in less than a second while casting blood siphon, and essentially be unstoppable.
But you will need a lot of density to really shine. The problem is that a lot of density with 2bn toughness will still likely get you 1 shot if the GR is high enough or your buffs fall off.
It clears pretty well and has more health and toughness than Inarius but probably less DR.
I actually prefer blood mage build over nova, it’s faster in lower tiers, a little more squishy (only about 600-800m toughness with my build), but doesn’t require managing buff stacks. You can literally just run in, drop some mages, and run around while stuff dies. It’s going to be 10-15 levels behind nova though when pushing.
Edit: Instead of squirts and coe you can use Traveler’s Pledge and Compass rose for more toughness while on the move. But you sacrifice a lot of damage and unless you’re doing 125+ you shouldn’t need that much toughness.
