If there’s one thing I learned from playing Agrivix binder last patch, it’s that CT spam nets you a shit ton of sustain, thus if ever there’s enough support for conversion so you can have enough damage, then it will be a good candidate for a conversion build base. I was searching for things to complement a theoretical Fire CT Sorc but there’s just not enough Aether>Fire conversion around to make it work. Luckily, we got a few goodies from this new patch, some Aether>Elemental conversion, which made it possible for this build to exist. Let me present to you.
Invoker set is taken for conversion, monstrous CS bonuses, RR and a great proc from the necklace. Perfect for this build.

This girl isn’t as tanky as your average binder but if you’re tired of the words AETHER and NERFS and BINDER but still wants the beauty of fartspam and rock slides then this is the build for you. Clears in 9 mins on my pc so it’s gonna be better if you’ve got the rig, maybe 1:30-2 mins differential cause there’s meteors.
Gear and Skills
IMO, the purples and the blue are all core items. Green Shoulders are absolutely necessary for this build to work. What you need to do if you’re playing legit is to enter everything in grimtools except shoulders and pants, farm the shoulders like crazy (the more you get, the better. they drop like candy on aetherial mage areas in the base game) then get the best affix combo you have, one that fills resistances, preferably one that also gives DA. After that, get whatever pants you have that can fill the holes on your build. The one I use isn’t necessary. You can use crafted pants and be fine.
Skills are what you would normally expect. You can take some liberties with regards to Renewal/Steel Resolve/Vigor/Seal/Empowerment/Elemental Balance/Maiven overcaps. I personally wanted 2950 DA for more consistency in cruci so I maxed Renewal.
Thanks Zantai for adding more conversion options. But I still want more Aether to Fire items. Please
