Defintely seems like an interesting class! Saw the blood scythe in the preview, and decided to give a Ritualist build a go. HP% caster seems pretty neat. I guess you'd want to go for Focus/Vit to really pump that hp?
Fun fact: Had to nuke my first Plaguelord because, uh, you can't relearn DisableBodyboost if you happen to get rid of it. Mistakes were made. x3
Edit: Found an odd bug. They can only equip 3 spells? I had 4 briefly, but every time I leveled up a skill, I got a prompt to remove one. Eventually did and it went back to normal. Not a major deal, I guess, but still kinda weird! If I had to guess, Boodyboost or Infestation are somehow counting as a spell. Weird.
I also noticed that hey drop the feedback on steam also with a bit of luck maybe the bugs will get fixed. i also tried a ritualistic build but at end game the price are to much for me... i only had the summon witch is awesome with 15 points but the 40% reduced hp does a pretty big hit.
Uh, yeah. I can imagine the -40% hp summon doesn't work well with Ritualist. I'm not gonna bother with it, myself. With the passives and fairly even split of vit/focus, I have a ton of hp(1950 at level 13), and I'm pretty much fine on costs. That +18% focus skill for one point is a really nice boost. =3
So far, I've had good success by using Constrict into Bloodscythe. I wish I had better single target, though(Grell took a bit), but it clears mobs well. Blood bouncey ball seems nice, but the damage is low...it's only the +magic damage listed?
Edit: Okay, so Vital Burst is some nice damage. Did like 2.8k+ on the elite I found. That's...pretty nice, yeah. Using it on big mobs causes the action to pause for a second, though, I guess due to all the rapid damage calculations? Iunno. Still, funner skill then expected. I'm not very far yet, but Ritualist is fuuuun.
