[Grendel] mains rejoice as our god Pablo bestowed us with a rework and an amazing one at that.
This is supposed to be a Hybrid Endurance build meaning that it is not the most optimal one (for an optimised or a more enery efficient ver. please look at the ALTERNATIVES further down in the guide) but it will definetly keep up with lvl cap no issues as long as you have the energy for it. Btw 2nd Arcane slot is up to you so go figure what you need.
HOW TO PLAY:
1.) Cast Gloom (3) and forget about it (69% slowdown ain't no joke)
2.) Feast (1) on your enemies. 5 if possible for max armor passive (2k [Gourmand] | 1.25k Base)
3.) Refresh Nourish (2).
4.) Use Regurgitate (4) to Armor strip enemies and drop a Zarr or anything that can kill fast in that matter to easily convert they/them into was/were.
Repeat 2 and 4 and occasionally refresh your Nourish buff while at it and you got an Armor Stripping - Shieldgating Monster
Optimised: Umbral Vitality -> Overextended + Gourmand -> Any Mod = 104% Armor Strip with 16m Strip AOE (Also 66.25m Feast range) | Values shown are without switching out Gourmand
Efficiency: Umbral Vitality -> Fleeting Expertise + Gourmand -> Augur Message = 100%+ Armor Strip with good efficiency but lower Duration. You may want to take a Decaying Dragon Key
