I THOUGHT YOU QUIT??
I did. I’m pulling off a chinese retirement cause patch buffs looked really great. Thermite buff as long as the many arcanist buffs made me wanna go sorc tho thermite focus and full cyclone wasn’t really a first choice. I arrived with the current setup which I’m happy with so I guess it’s time to share
Char sheet with all permanent buffs. OA items are all top rolled, hence the huge difference from grimtools
GRIMTOOLS - updated 220.127.116.11 to keep up with the nerfs.
- Why Lightning Sorc? - Cause most sorc builds posted are fire, people might think fire is the only viable sorc. Also, the very first build I posted here is a lightning sorc
- Main Skill Choices - My first setup was Canister+BWC, then BWC+Thermites. Both were good and tanky but not fast enough for cruci. This current Canister + Thermites is the best of the three. Thermite is now a good damage skill, especially if you put all 9 mines on top of a boss!
- Devotions - I wanted to get the most % lightning damage while still being reasonable. Spear + Ultos is obvious. Bat is very useful. Ghoul too. TD is there purely for offense with double canister double BWC combo. I could’ve snuck in Imp but it needs one more skill and I’m not the type who can clear fast even with piano.
- No Barrelsmith? Even 1 piece? - Double Barrelsmith breaks Cyclone, so that’s not an option. 1pc Barrelsmith might be better damage-wise but I’m OA whoring. Also a mage holding a gun and an effigy doesn’t make sense
- Relic - If you wanna suggest something like Eternity or Korvaak relic. I won’t accept it cause Pyroclasm has a nice proc Eternity might be better damage-wise tho if you really wanna minmax. As for Korvaak, the OA is nice, DA isn’t needed, skill is just more piano and you lose a bit of lightning damage.
Cruci Performance and Video
New video for 18.104.22.168
Cruci cleartime is around 6-6:30 with 3 buffs and 1 banner. Video shows 6:02 run. I’m no John_Smith or Shoot, they might be able to elevate this to sub 6 mins.
To play this build follow these steps:
- Choose a spot
- Plant a crapton of mines
- Wait for enemy
- Mash 1,2 and 3 buttons on your keyboard.
- Blink to next mob group
- Repeat previous steps.
If you’re on boss waves you wanna place all 9 mines on top of each other. 9 mines hitting a single unit is huuuuge damage.
Other Stuff* **Realms** - I don't like realms. I did have some spare realm sets back when I played it last patch tho. There's a shitton of them drops before it was moved to vendors so it wasn't a problem finding good rolled parts. - copied this from the previous thread again
