Basic Gameplay Top

The idea is to use Shade of Mephisto to go in, Lightning Nova to get damage, and Skull Missile to slow

Consume Souls is NOT Balanced Top

This build is disgusting.

Malicious Intent gives you 20% Spell Power.
Static Barrier improves your survivability.
Ghastly Armor improves survivability.
Consume Souls is OP.
Abhorred Skull gives you 20% spell power on skillshot.
Static Field synergises with lvl 4 and lets you have additionnal damage.
Consumed by Hatred is a bonus to ensure you are 100% disgusting.

The main focus of this build is your Ultimate Ability aka. Consume Souls.

After getting enough damage, here is the disgusting part.
At lvl 13, use Shade of Mephisto to get 20% spell power.
Throw Skull Missile to get 20% more.
Cast Lightning Nova to be annoying and get your shield.
Cast Consume Souls with 40% spell power to win the fight...

At lvl 20, this is just more disgusting.

Durance of Hate is Balanced? Top

This build focuses on having Durance of Hate availiable for every teamfight.

Anger activates your trait on Basic Attacks.
We sacrifice Spite because Static Barrier is just so much stronger.
Ghastly Armor is still my favorite lvl 7 for survivability.
Durance of Hate is very impactful in teamfights, but you need to land it!
Hysteria will lower the cooldown of Durance of Hate and synergises with Anger.
Animosity helps you reduce your cooldown even if you can't cast Lightning Nova right away. You just need to extend its duration (unless you're in a pinch and want the shield ASAP.
Unspeakable Horror is just too powerful of a lvl 20. If you land it, it's disgusting.

Consume Souls might see some nerfs, so it's great to practice the other ultimate which is very strong and has a lower cooldown.

Full Sustained Damage Top

This build focuses on having your cooldowns always reduced while surviving and dealing a lot of damage.

Anger activates your trait on Basic Attacks.
Static Barrier is the go to.
Ghastly Armor is my favorite lvl 7, but you can take Trickery.
Durance of Hate will help you get a lot of damage out of Lightning Nova. You can still go for Consume Souls since it's so strong...
Shard of Hate is the key talent of this build. Big synergy with Anger, your cooldowns are non-existant.
Animosity also has a strong synergy with Shard of Hate, with the passive effect on Basic Attacks.
Unspeakable Horror just seems too impactful for me to give it up. Only Mimic looks a bit weak.

This build makes you a beast. Having Lightning Nova almost alaways availiable, you always have Static Barrier and it stacks! (which should be nerfed... for real.)
