Yesterday I used this guide to get some devotion points through the Crucible, and got to level 18 with a new character:
At the end of it, I was level 18, with 10 devotion points, ready to start the main campaign.
This character was the result of a Legendary drop I’ve been seeing a lot with all my characters:
I figured the game was trying to tell me to create a Warlock, so I finally made a Warlock. My plan is to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while: create a character that uses the Arcanist Death ray. And since my other class will be Occultist, I’m going to go with the Tainted Power modifier that changes the blue death ray into an evil Red Death ray. It changes Aether and Lightning damage into Chaos and Vitality damage, respectively. I’ve always been fascinated by the prospect of using the death ray, and also of having it be Chaos and Vitality damage one.
One nice thing about using the Crucible to get all these Devotion points up front is that I’ll soon have access to Eldritch Fire, which is a move you get from the Devotion tree, which lowers the Fire Resist and Chaos Resist of enemies. As for Vitality resist, I can lower that using Curse of Frailty + Vulnerability in the Occultist tree.
Hopefully this should make the Red Death Ray effective against all enemies, even with high resists to Chaos and Vitality damage.
