This is a gimmick I tried a few months ago: meteors everywhere. I went aether damage and full devotion procs but it wasn’t good enough. I decided to work again on this concept and instead of aether, it’s now focused on Elemental/Fire with Aether to Fire conversion.
Core for the build are obviously Devastation items: Helm, Amulet and Off-hand.
Other items have proven to really good elemental pieces.
The Medal is the weak link of itemization. If you have some suggestions ? The build isn’t very dependent on resistance/augment/component management.
Note on the only green item in the build:
It is only used for the -3 seconds on Devastation. Any prefix/suffix would do, though good damage affixes are welcomed of course. And it’s easy to farm.
An unsual path, for me at least: Meteor, Eldrtich Fire, Elemental Storm and Flame Torent. Charriot could be cut for Blind Sage (Elemental Seeker) but I like my characters to be defensive.
Word of Pain (Eldrtich Fire).
2 Devastation for AoE that proc Meteor Shower and Elemental Storm.
Stormfire is your spamming ability (Flame Torrent).
Nullification for debuff.
Inquisitor Seal for Damage absoprtion essentially.
Word of Renewal for health sustain and defence.
Mirror of Ereoctes for the “oh! shit!” moments.
The fight is easy. More than 2K armor and 20% physical resistance is very good for a caster. Process:
Stand in Inquisitor Seal.
Pop the Devas’ and spam Stormfire.
Run and dance till the cooldowns are back.
AoE is obviously very good. It lacks a bit of RR to my taste and some single target damage but it’s a very safe build. Note: not a build for people who suffer from epileptic seizure
I was playing a WoP build previously and without Gildam Medal, WoP damage is really low indeed in this build. Maybe switch for Stormbox then ?! That’s always a dilemma, DA shred from the box vs. easy, spammable and high range from WoP.
Medal choice for elemental caster is quite low indeed. Youalways end up with the same process: if you have shaman, then Tempet Sigil. If you have WoP and Stormbox, then Gildam. If not, just cry and take whatever has the best resistances you need.
