Ignore the pretty green colour, this is a ray of pure chaos. This build differs from other Chaos AAR builds by not having to deal with pathetic vitality damage and by converting all the non dot damage to one type. I originally came up with this before the conduit nerf hotfix so I had to make some changes to fix the survivability issues that come from using Essence of the Grim Dawn.
The gear is focused on converting all the AAR damage and also capping AAR + Disintegration. I think everything here is BiS, but the affixes on the belt don’t really matter. All that really matters is the +1 arcanist really. Craft everything for %physique.
The devotions were originally more aggressive, but now that Essence of the Grim Dawn provides far more damage than conduit I had to make some sacrifices. Guardian’s Gaze and Behemoth made the build much more stable and reliable while still being incredibly fast.

4:39 with pretty good mutators and good spawns. It’s pretty consistently at or under 5:15 though. I haven’t tested it in SR, but I imagine SR75 should be fine. Not sure how far it would go though.

AAR is still way too strong. The last nerf to the conduit hurt sustain more than anything when it’s the damage that’s the true problem. Sub 5 minutes with chaos AAR and sub 6 minutes with cold AAR is a bit too much. @romanN1 Managed a 4:19 world record with clairvoyant binder after the hotfix. I think the base skill needs some sort of nerf and I think clairvoyant needs a bit of a nerf too to bring it all in line.
