This build mainly revolves around Corpse Explosion, with many of the other Skills powering it up or enabling you to use it more.

Besides Corpse Explosion, the core Skills of this build are:



Nayr’s Black Death will allow all of your offensive Skills to boost each other’s damage up, as they will all deal Poison damage. Grasps of Essence and The Johnstone will both increase the damage of Corpse Explosion. Trag’Oul’s Corroded Fang, Krysbin’s Sentence, and  Convention of Elements will all increase your overall damage. Razeth’s Volition, Aquila Cuirass, Ancient Parthan Defenders, Dayntee’s Binding, and Stone Gauntlets will all help with damage reduction.

Legacy of Dreams is an essential Legendary Gem to this build, as it will massively increase your offense and defense for having only legendary gear equipped. Bane of the Trapped and Bane of the Stricken will generally be the other best choices for Legendary Gems, both of which will further increase your damage.
