- How real Wind Devil looks like
Trozan set got Occultist support few patches ago. That immediately made Warlock suitable class for TSS caster, not just Druid. But this build of mine is actually … Conjurer. Playing Trozan set without Trozan skill, cause why not? Not that lack of Arcanist will stop me from making the caster’s signature spirit dump anyway.
- permanent buffs, DPS for Chain Lightning.

So Trozan set is the key providing mods to Wind Devil and Sigil skills. Off-hand is also crucial, I selected bis affixes but the -2 seconds recharge and +1 summon is key.
Conduit is with Wind Devils mod. I tested Storm Totems one, but QoL is bad. And 5 devils all the time is so so great. -15% RR to CoF is nice too but +1 Occultist don’t have value here.
Also took some weird or not very popular items. Like pants(BiS here actually), rings combo and medal. Belt is MI but Storm Shepherd is great too. Lightning damage converted from vitality boosts bat proc and Wendigo Totems.
Relic is standard for lightning Shamans, boots+gloves boost my spirit.
NOTE: If you don’t have top rolls or good MI affixes don’t invest that many points in spirit.
Aggressive lightning map with Spear, Ultos and Tsunami procs. Also Elemental Storm for massive flat RR. Bat and Ghoul provides the defense and overall balance.
How this build survive?
Mostly by healing. Nice sustain from Bat with ~ 50 % vitality damage converted, also Wendigo Totem and Sigil. Also small boost from offensive devotion procs with weapon damage. Physical resistance for Occultist caster is good as usual. Ghoul and Grey magi procs makes you reach record amounts.
Build is somewhat vulnerable against burst damage, due to lack of damage reduction source and absorb is limited to prismatic diamond.
Most of the waves in Crucible will be very easy, sustain allows you to maximize your damage and draw in the middle enemies. Mad Queen, 169 and some Nemesis combos can’t be facetanked fully though. So build success rate depends on piloting skills and caution.
I recommend 4 buffs + 3x level 1 beacons setup. Elemental Storm is attached for Sigil, so can proc directly under the tough enemies. Beacons provides decent AoE RR.
Average time is slightly under 6 minutes, probably like 5:50-5:55 with my playing. I think it have more potential, my fastest run is 5:25!
