It’s rare to see builds focusing on purple/green devotion path using Seru+Seekers. And we see this type of a build, it’s usually elemental build. This one is not though. Aether build with full elemental to a aether conversion focused on having offensive procs… lot’s of them. End result is really fun and strong build actually. And that’s Apostate, which isn’t that good of a class usually.
Key is Bonemonger set, which is tailored for Apostate class. Also weapon+rings convert fully elemental damage to aether with slightly above rolls. Pants&Boots for stun and slow. Belt is for much needed vitality to aether conversion. Relic have nice proc and medal is actually pretty impressive, since I use both Pain and Box. Off-hand and gloves increase my OA. OA/DA are low, but I have big amounts of shred.
Seekers+Seru doing fully aether damage, really nice! Also Bat&Phoenix for defense. Decided to skip flat RR devotion, is present on scepter anyway.
Word of Pain
Will of Kings Augment
In Crucible build smashes all trash mobs, even most aetherials aren’t a problem, despite no racial damage bonus. Big RR and damage helps with that. Because lack of Ghoul and other circuit breakers, you have to be aware of burst damage. Otherwise multiple layers of defense makes it very safe. Times are around 5:20 on average, my fastest run of 5:07:
In SR performance is a bit erradic, depends on spawns. 65/66 farming should be easy, although 75 is also possible. Video from 75th wave, boss chunk.
Word of Pain and Storm Box with Siphon will do some really hard work leveling up. My Purifier was lightning based, but she used nothing but Word of Pain, Storm Box and Chain Lightning all the way through SR 65 with no gear to speak of. As long as you can kite you can get away with a lot.
