GS Drain Reaper


A direct damage teamfight focused reaper that draintanks and makes your allies harder to kill with your presence alone



Instead of Spectral Grasp

While these skills are nice you dont have a lot of mobility and spectral grasp is another way to keep enemies close but they are not to be ignored

  • if you are finding you need a little more survivability protection in shroud and ticking life force generation will keep you alive at the cost of a chunk of damage



If you don't expect to be fighting close enough to your allies Rune of the Soldier and Rune of Vampirism are both perfectly valid, albeit a bit selfish, choices but they still allow you to drain tank. Rune Of the Soldier is also a great option against high condition damage allowing you constant cleansing. If you choose the rune of Vampirism you just have to be a bit more mindful of finishing downed enemies in fights and may want to use sigil of Exploitation.


  • is an excellent way to recoup life force even at full health because of which converts excess healing into barrier
  • While you are stronger in melee and have much more power with the greatsword many wont chose to fight you in a head to head, and can force many confrontations but if you can't get on your target swap to the axe you have it for a reason
  • While fighting in melee and you know your opponent will try to win can be used as an almost instant inturrupt for large skills or as a medium gap closer for when your opponent wants to make distance
  • is a wonderful setup tool for you slower hit like and if you follow that up with the damage from , , and will kill most medium health or damaged enemies
  • If you can fight in make sure you do as it will mitigate a ton of damage
  • , and are your reaction skills, the armor for stunbreak and suffer for cleanse, although you can use before you shroud to enhance your durability in shroud

Very fun build, unkillable, makes your team unkillable, good damage for the fact that you run avatar and flock. Doesn't need a support which is a first for reaper, easy condi transfer which is pretty destructive. Yeah, after condi reaper gets nerfed into the ground, this will be the be the best version of Reaper

Very fun build that can't die, but try switching Ritual of Life for Overflowing Thirst and use Dagger/Dagger instead of Greatsword. Daggers are faster and you get Immobilize and heal in their kit along with ability to transfer conditions. Also I use Soul Eater instead of Decimate Defense.
