Well imo it should be inferior. You have slightly higher direct damage than your convention Infernal Knight Sorcerer but in terms of burn potential IK is ahead. Although it really doesn’t matter since even with this build you’ll melt enemies in seconds.
How are the ticks on this one?
Pretty decent, it’s rather easy to achieve 280k+ consistent ticks. This means our burn potential is very good I consider it decent cause I expected 350k+ ticks :p.
Our current DoTs are good enough to spam our skills and wait for the message “Enemy Boss Killed”
Is Rune of Kalastor any good w/o the mods?
Ignition’s burn potential is very good. Moreover the rune itself is excellent for proc’ing devotions.
In Closing -
This is one of the better builds I have played. I’ve wanted to use Canister Bomb and Grenado for a Burn Caster for ages and being able to use both on the same build is nice.
I hope you guys enjoy it.
Not having a second Cindercore would mean lesser and short lived Burn ticks. Yours looks like a different build since I personally am more focused on Burn damage so I’d have gone for Entropic Coil instead of Elemental Harmony in ring slot.
That being said I like Cataclysm Set and Elemental Harmony Rings so rate this 10/10
Defenses generally are not an issue to someone who can pilot a DoT build so don’t worry about it. I would advise you to keep a close eye on Energy. It runs out surprisingly fast
Currently lvling with this build on Elite at lvl 69 past first act I am loving it so far I melt things left and right but I have also been staking fire and burn as I lvl. Very pleased with the build plan to take it further as this character is currently my main and highest toon.
