Burn and Frostburn builds have been popular since vanilla days. Electrocution not so much. I tried and failed multiple times. This time I managed to achieve some sort of success thanks to the support added in AoM.
1. Gearing -
You need 4 pieces of gear to make this work
-Mythical Wyrmbone Mask for strengthening the DoT potential of Stun Jacks
-Mythical Wyrmbone Handguards for strengthening the DoT potential of BWC
- Chosen Storm Seal for the improved duration
- Any off hand (MI or otherwise) with “Of Torrents Suffix”, if you can’t find it then use any +all skills off hand and use Ultos Chestpiece (BiS setup uses both Ultos and “Of Torrents” Offhand)
The rest of the items are flexible, although I’d say Allagast + Ultos Chest seems to be BiS
Relic is something I am having trouble deciding. Pyroclasm seem to be superior since most of my skills come from Demo line those +skills would be useful there.
But the problem that arises is that w/o that RR I loose potency of Electrocute ticks
2. Direct Nukers-
One of the main source of damage of this build is direct lightning damage through Stun Jacks and Grenado. While they’re strong sources of DoT damage they’re equally potent in direct damage department
3. Inquisitor Seal-
I like this skill but considering the playstyle of this build and how rarely I find it useful for this particular build I had no choice but to drop Seal. If you intend to try to crucible I’d still recommend you take seal but for vanilla you can manage w/o it (even against squidboi)
4. Faction Choice-
It’s pretty evident that Kymon’s Chosen are nothing but delusional fucks so siding them might be distasteful to some of you. So I’d recommend farming their rep to unlock the ring before Ultimate so that on Ultimate you can side with Order of the Death’s Vigil
And if you come across any other faction choice where you’re given the option to either kill them or side with them. Side with them regardless of how terrible they seem

I am missing only Pants and am using Vanilla GD MIs. Off hand is also Vanilla GD version but affixes are same
The Chestpiece is defensively superior to Allagast Chest Piece and adds % Duration bonus to our main damage type.
You can also go with Elementalist for Electrocution, the elementalist setup is just a theorycrafted setup for now - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/lV7w1qvV
If you want then go with Elementalist and Vindicator using the same concept. They both should work well
This build is a DoT build it has decent QoL because of that but it takes a while to learn how to play this and managing individual cooldowns. After that everything’s a cakewalk
I had a lot of fun with this build and hope you guys enjoy it as well
