En1gma so many choices so little time. IC is a classic favorite, Also thinking about OG Smokescreen, or energy storm /lighting blade...decisions decisions. Thinking though on my lunch at work. Any new builds or twists on old builds you've tried after all the updates?

A working idea atm. VKVS, vraes...because vraes is my favorite, Kyera first for EA then later banishment, Vincent to electrify everyone and Selen as melee.
Vraes will be the forward punching bag when needed not 100% sure on build yet phs +br is a proven classic, but I kinda want to stick a 2 hander on him and let him go ham not good for nm survivability though.
Kyera: for EA the best curse in the game -ap, dodge, and acc for 2ap. Will pair with the 4 so cost of banishment, which is a fantastic talent for ep3
Vincent: is the primary aoe range and dps enhancer of the group. Energy storm, thundering blades lighting spear enough said +A little off curse allowing for -3ap curse
Melee Selen, been forever since I've gone the melee route with her, but dual would Selen is a single target dps beast that can off tank at higher levels.
Coming back to this game after about a year or so. I left off with a Dex Vraes build. Is Dex Vraes still a thing or have the updates pushed him to a more traditional Str character?
That's still a viable build. Strength-based weapons have gained a lot of nice base damage bonuses in the mean time making them even more awesome in Vraes' hands. We chose to improve Strength instead of nerfing Dex.
Curse Vincent into a smart surgical strike melee might be best. Maybe look into getting Flash Freeze and maybe Frigid Air just to have some ranged suppression. With Flash Freeze doinking AP at range, Torrent of Steel can handle AP close up and stack it to really bring enemy attacks to a minimum. This lets you use Fyona for Strickening and off-tanking, and gives you all res curses to stack and wreck with Sundering.
If I go Fyona probably ferocity should stay low (and bonus physical dmg from rage is a bit wasted) she could solve dmg problem(with tos from tamilin) and she could also heal (I think I won to need her dmg).
Curse Vincent is out of group idea but i use flash freeze 2 and frigid air 1 frequently. Also EA 1 if I got Kyera so AP curse is not problem.
I also tried going from dex Vreas with shield and dex Vincent to two handed Vreas and and strenght Vincent and dmg was pretty good but misses hurt so much and was frequent even with pinning shot and full strenght.
