you create cool builds with good ideas&concepts, but whenever i read your caster guides all i see is ‘double mirror’, looking other one again ‘double mirror’ cmon man.
i love 5 nodes leading to time dilation proc esp slow and trap resist and da is lovely but by going time dilation cheeze, you give up potentially %200-300 light dmg which is %10 more dmg, %150-200 electrocute with some duration maybe yet another %10-15 more dmg, and you potentially give up min 200 to 500 OA and possibly +5-15 extra crit which also potentially %20 dmg loss.
so what you do is exactly by expanding your kill time you put yourself into a positon that needing of double mirror OR
dont get this part wrong this is all friendly post; you stuck your mind&play&piloting skills behind double mirror cheeze, which effects your playstyle badly in long term. cause this method makes you abit lazy all i see.
not every caster relly/need heals to finish crucible or banners, there are other methods aswell. and i guess i wanna see much from you about this part, cause i think you have the potential.
I saw something like this build before, but this one must perform better iirc.
Did you consider dropping Aeons and Dying God and take Scholar’s Light and Ultos instead? Not sure if it’s optimal, but lots of lightning damage and extra powerful proc must add lots of damage output.
Also I see you facetank nearly everything, maybe Wendigo Totem for extra safety? Wendigo totem and Blood Pact 1+1 will make Hand of Ultos proc and Chain Lightning leech some life for you.
