With all permanent buff + savagery charges and elemental imbalance.
DPS shown is not important.
- Insane cruci clear speed
- Non clunky and enjoyable to play
- Full spellcaster gameplay
- Non Trozan druid
- You need to learn to kite
- Using spear of the heavens, so arches will reduce your damage/leech effectiveness
Ludrigan seems to be forgotten since @ya1 and @John_Smith posted the vindicator version, which all of them said that it’s torturing to play due to totem’s long CD. So here is the druid version! High QoL, having 46% CDR, 2.7 sec CD totem, 1.6 sec CD panetti, and 13.5 CD giant’s blood! BTW, electrocute ticks in dummy is 350k max and dummy kill is 19sec. Pretty good for an AoE spellcaster.
I will not going into much detail here as some of the itemization is quite obvious.
On defense, we have prismatic diamond proc, decent wyrmscale proc, dawnshard’s proc reduced damage, 3.5 sec Giant’s blood downtime, decent 2.2 armor (only 92% absorb though), decent health regen, Mirror of Ereoctes for panic button, and nullification. Use nullification generously for both offense and defense.
Try to get maximum CDR, and Craft equipment at Kaylon for stun res or arngrim for +% armor or phys.
Ludrigan’s Pride Set
Invoker’s Will Set
Belt: Mythical Storm Shepherd. [Shaman’s lightning belt that convert Aether to lightning, get as max conversion as possible.]
Relic: Iskandra’s Balance. [Massive relic for elemental Arcanist, get +Star pact as completion bonus]
Shoulder: Mythical Dawnshard Pauldrons. [Increase bat’s leech, giving massive Aether res, giving phys res, and reduced damage proc. What’s not to love?]
Gloves: Cindertouch. [Converting some fire to Lightning, giving massive OA, and proc]
Pants: Mythical Legplates of Valor. [Just to cover Res and pretty good defensive pants]
Boots: Mythical Wyrmscale Footguards. [Freshly buff in 18.104.22.168 giving massive stun res. Perfect for storm totem build]
Movement Rune: Use whatever you like. I use rune of Ultos’ Arrival at the moment.

Cast Mirror of Ereoctes when you are surrounded by multiple nemesis or when giant’s blood is in cooldown.
Kite if necessary.
For 170 Crucible, video with 4 buff without banner:
6:25 clear time. Yes, this is a NO BANNER run.
The build is consistent around 6:20 to 6:40. Basically never hit 7 minutes mark.
Also worth noting that this spec kill mogdrogen without any drugs. Need to kite skillfully though.
Will be check later, too lazy to climb higher shards
Another build with insane clear speed! Enjoy…
