Introduction

Emerging from the 2.6.1 reworks of the Natalya's Vengeance set, the Natalya Marauder Hybrid implements the best of both worlds — the empowerment and damage reduction of the former with the remote, Sentry-based playstyle of the latter. This durable, long range, beginner-friendly build is one of your easiest entry points into endgame pushing.

2.2.1.

Angelic Crucible Sanctification

Season 27 comes with the theme of Angelic Crucibles — consumable items that empower Legendary items with perfected Ancient-level stats, as well as infuse them with one of three unique, powerful, class-specific abilities at random. For this build, we recommend aiming for the Cluster Arrow Cluster Arrow Sanctification, which adds the following power to your build:

  • Cluster Arrow Sanctification: Firing Cluster Arrow no longer drops explosive ordinance. Instead, it concentrates its explosive force into piercing rays of light.

Use Angelic Crucibles on an item that crosses over most (if not all) variants of a build, and is also an item that is relatively harder to perfect than other slots (since sanctifying an item maximizes its stats). In the case of this build, a good candidate for Sanctification is Bombardier's Rucksack Bombardier's Rucksack, which is present across all variants of this build.

You can read more on Angelic Crucibles and the sanctification process in our dedicated Angelic Crucible Mechanics guide.
