Warlock is often outperformed by other classes but Trozan is one of those sets that make the class shine, so here is my take that has a little more focus on the sigils than usual, and provides a setup working for both Crucible and SR.
The build focuses on both lightning and cold, can complete 150-170 fairly safely thanks to the ridiculous CDR it has and the sustain provided by hardcapped sigils, and has a high success rate at farming SR65 or 75.
Roman’s setup with more CD on Mirror but more DoT on TSS for crucible :
Like any classic Trozan build, we have the whole Trozan set with 2 pieces of the Eastern Set.
Belt + Boots : Fill the holes in elemental, chaos and slow resistance, and hardcap the Sigils for extra damage and safety.
Relic : Eternity is there to effectively reduce the cooldown of Mirror, Nullification, Devastation, and sometimes get a double TSS/Sigil. Iskandra’s Balance works too for a more offensive approach.
Rings : Boost both our damage types and provide a nice damaging proc. Since the relic is crafted for a bonus to Shattered Star, you can use an Allagast ring to hardcap Shattered Star without the relic’s bonus.
Alternative choices :
Storm Gem of Allagast, Glyph of the Storm Witch, (Mythical) Starfire, the epic version of Anubar’s ring.
Off-Hand : Thunderstruck of Fallen Skies if the best combo for damage and survival thanks to the physical resistance.
The alternate setup uses Warding of Spellweaving, to overcap the aether resistance and grab a little more damage.
In general, aim for rolls with high CDR, you can get up to 51% to bring TSS to 1.1s CD and Sigil to 1s ; with Eternity, Mirror is practically on a 9s CD.
Nothing fancy, we focus on getting RR of all kinds, and add Blizzard for more meteors. The devotions to get there are chosen to get CC resistances and some casting speed so that we can cycle comfortably between our skills.
The build works well in SR without having to use cheap tricks like Camera Abuse, you can facetank enemies one by one or just kite them all (dangerous approach but we got CC res to help).
Here is a completed run with pretty terrible mutators (15% elemental resistance to enemies, -20% cast speed for me) :
Since I can’t record, I asked Roman to run it for me and he got a very good time (5:37)

didn’t tried yet, I’ll fill that part later.
Thanks to @romanN1 for the help and the Crucible run, and the whole GD Discord for the support !
