This is rather strain forward build focused around Archon Warmaul AoE and fire dmg with a small amount of extra burning.
Hellfire or Infernal of Arcane balance/Conflugation/Scorched runes Archon Warmaul is BiS, but any combination of above prefix/suffixer should work.Probably any warmaul will work
Another option is Sharzul Worldeater. Beware of mana PITA with Zully mace.
Justice set is BiS for both dmg and survivability. I tried to make it work with Ulzuin, but it simply suck >>
Elemental rings for fancy proc. Amulet can be changed for empowered beronath, but I get sick of crafting that shit for every build >>
Formidable Stoneplate greaves of whatever are BiS.
I still cant chose my relic - both Korvak and Ignafar provide good results. Korvak is better against Reapers and provide mobility boost, Iganafar kill IM slightly faster.
you can use ulzuin myth gunner medal, has 5% AS too.
These archon mauls drop quite a lot in crucible sometimes. An infernal one would be great. Also wanted to try with Void seal. This build is already stupid strong. If it had proper WPS it would be ridiculous
I hope to see changes to Demon fire - with a proper source of %dmg reduction Elementalist should vastly outperform Purifier with such builds. Right now just don’t work cause squishy >>
BTW, really need moar %RR. I hate mines, but pushing it to 16/16 helps a lot against IM >>
Haven’t tried fire strike yet (well, actually all demo skill in general), but it’s interesting that auto-attack build can be good without WPS. Can regular fire strike do this? Or the massive quadruple fire strike modifer from archon’s warmaul make it happen?
Also, OA is quite low, but I guess deadly aim will always proc due to aura of censure constant damage. Lastly, it might be hard, but I think you should squeeze in Viper. It should increase your damage further.
Interesting that most fire melee/ranged build posted are using justicar set, although it doesn’t grant any plus skill to their main damaging skills.
Archon is god tier. I tried numerical superior Infernal brimstone, but it wasn’t even close. Explosive strike multistrike shotgun help a lot, it aslo proc Fiend crazy, adding 156% WD per second. Elementalist should be better in terms of DPS output due to Feral hunger.
Viper cannot reduce resistances intro negatives and it work as last %RR, so it does nothing.
OA with buffs is fine 3k effective w/o deadly aim, 3.4k with it. No reason to push it further.
Justicar is godtier, it outperform Ulzuin in both defence and offence.
