If you have more titans per stage than heavenly strike splash skips, HS is not a viable build.
This guide will contain two versions: HS Mana Siphon pHoM and HS Mana Siphon Fairy.
In order for the mana regeneration function correctly you will need to have a Mana Pot active at all times, not having it can make the runs considerably slower. having the Chained Clockwork set is not a must, but it helps a lot.
You will need to calculate your own Heavenly Strike level based on your current stats. If you don't know how to do that, go to the HS Calculator linked at the bottom of this guide.
READ ME. Angelic Radiance was optimized accordingly just like any other skill. If you wish to have even faster runs, MAX OUT Angelic Radiance as soon as possible, else, follow the guide accordingly.
This being a push build contains Anchoring Shot, Lightning Strike, and Poison Edge. They can slow down runs considerably, in the exchange of more strength. If you wish to have faster runs, remove all 3 and continue following the columns accordingly.
While Forbidden Contract can make your build stronger, in theory, ignoring it gave equal to higher results in strength. If you wish to use Forbidden Contract, MAX it out and get Mana Siphon as high as possible. A minimum of Mana Siphon 20 is recommended.
Removing Poison Edge from the build will not make it as weak as one would think, the difference is minimal and totally worth for the extra speed and lazyness over the QTEs
This build guide does not take into account Quality of Life skills, like Fairy Charm. If you wish to have Fairy Charm, level it between 4 and 6, or straight to 10, and follow the guide accordingly.
While you can stack Poison Edge's bonus up to 10 times, it is recommended to use one dagger per titan in an attempt to not slow down the run by using all of them at once.
If you use up all your daggers on a single titan, you will need to wait 30 seconds for another set of daggers to appear.
You will heavily rely on Poison Edge's damage boost when you are getting close to your max stage, so using the daggers correctly will ensure that your run does not take longer than expected.
Mana Siphon was left to 16 as a default value. For more accurate results, you should go to Mmlh's Minor Sheet (linked below) and calculate your Optimal Mana Siphon level. Go to the "LB/Siphon Optimizer" tab.
You will have to input all of your corresponding data in said tab and look at the bottom table, the one that gives you an estimate of mana/min depending on your LB and Siphon levels.I recommend leaving LB as lvl 2.
According to Mmlh, having around 725 average mana/min, a mix of Mana Siphon and regular mana regeneration, should be enough to sustain a Mana Siphon run. Example: 600/min from Siphon + 120/min regular regeneration.
Remember that you need to have a MAX level Shadow Clone in order to regenerate mana properly with Mana Siphon. This is because higher levels of SC have a higher special attempts count, which is what procs Mana Siphon.
If your Heavenly Strike splash skips are lower than your titans per stage, you won't splash properly, but it will enable durendal push for HS.
Remember that this is only a guideline, it will always be better to make your own build based on your own stats. Mmlh's Optimizer linked below.
Prioritize the trees as following: Sorcerer -> Knight -> Warlord -> Rogue.
If you have the Ignus, Ironheart, Kor, or Styxsis sets, toggle the setting to Yes.
Additional Notes :
Bold number values indicate an increase in level of the skill per new total sp column bracket.

Keep HS at the optimal level, all other skills at level 1. Max out the other skills as soon as the HS damage drops. DO NOT level up Deadly Strike, it does not grant any damage increase.
Spam HS as much as you can while upgrading your heroes in between activations.
