This build is highly inspired by @Plasmodermic’s 90% converted TSS cold druid. After seeing that build, I got to thinking can I build a pure lightning version of this? The result is this 90% converted lightning build that’s also chock full of proc goodness.
Why this build over the myriad other TSS druids already out there?
- Can go over +3000% lightning damage depending on the affixes of your shoulders and high rolls on gear. (I personally have around 2950%)
- 5 TSS shards
- Average 75% and max 90% cold to lightning conversion means your TSS and Wind Devils are converted to the damage that’s focused on. Conversion coupled with super high lightning damage, all that damage stacks up.
- Almost every offensive skill has a devotion attached. More procs = more fun.
Con is this build is glassy AF. You’ll constantly be kiting and letting your WD and totems do the work while you throw TSS on cooldown.
All perm buffs up
Eastern set, Trozan hat, Spark of Ultos, Ascendant Shoulders and Starfury amulet are irreplaceable.
Shoulders: Ascendant Pauldrons
The shoulders are core to the build but I intentionally left the affixes on the GT link empty to show that you only need the base item for the build to work. Any extra stats you get from the MI is gravy. Highly suggested suffix is Fallen Skies for the mini TSS proc.
I picked Stormtitan for the resistances and damage reduction proc but Stormbearers is a solid alternative.
Craftable and it is golden with Fallen Skies suffix.
Medal: Mythical Direwolf Crest
Strong option that enables dual wield and comes with higher OA and racial damage against beast. I wanted to push lightning damage as high as possible so I went Korvaak.
