Anyone know if this still is a viable POTD solo build in 4.0+?

Define viable.  Upscaled?  All DLC?  All megabosses?  

 

I've played this build quite a bit in 3.0 PotD upscaled so here are my thoughts:

  • Slime Megaboss is likely to be impassable.  Finite resources support your defenses and no self sustain except consumables.  Your deflection isn't high enough either to just dodge everything.  This fight is a major grind and without a way to "destroy" the first form, you're stuck doing the seperate and kill jig.  
  • BoW Dragon is likely to require a major shift in tactics.  This build relies a lot on CC to help reduce incoming damage.  Furthermore once the boss enters the "Spam Llengrath's Defenses mode things will get rough.  20 armor is a lot and the old Scordeo's/Rust's knockdown lock no longer works.
  • SSS Cipher Fight - With Fort this low Disintegration will always land.  Will require a major tactics shift.
  • SSS Changling Fight - No good innate bonuses means this fight is more or less an autoloss.  It's a stupid fight but it is what it is.
  • Nonock and The Oracle - Can't interrupt and caster bosses.  Again, tactics shift.

You can make it work, but there will be times where you probably have to go outside what the build's normal strategy is.  But I doubt it can clear every bit of content in the game.

Goldpact/Streetfighter is probably your best bet.

I’ll second that.
