Last night, Moneybags Martin dropped a Temporal Archblade. When I had a moment to breathe and take a good look at it… I was a little confused.
Normally, it’s not too hard to look at an item and figure out which mastery combination the developers had in mind when they made it. But this one? What is it for? Some kind of Battlemage I guess, but I couldn’t figure out what to do with it and I couldn’t remember seeing it in any builds that I had read.
Very interesting build! I’ve been reading your build threads because you come up with some creative combinations but I missed this one somehow. Maybe because Conjurer ordinarily doesn’t appeal to me for some reason.
I noticed that in your build thread someone replied and said they were doing Aether/Lightning with a Druid. I thought about that when I was looking at the tooltip last night but didn’t know if it would work.
Edit: How would you recommend leveling your Conjurer build?
Some points here and there depending on item spirit requirements.
If an intermediate item needs more spirit than the BiS item, then you don’t go for that intermediate item regardless of how good it might be
I know it’s generally considered all physique is the only way to go, but some time ago they made cunning useful again and you get pretty nice OA returns from it. I suggest if anyone lacks some OA on any build then you can invest a little into cunning provided your defenses are strong enough.
But then I would have to sacrifice something different - most likely Magi…
The %weapon damage might be nice - I did actually not consider it. One reason for me to get Magi was the extra cast speed. And Fissure has a stun. Not sure which skill does more damage in the end, but with Forcewave I already have a strong skill for close combat. I think Fissure being cast on ranged mobs makes my build more well rounded. And with OFF it can proc twice … unless I fight a boss. And Aetherfire is already assigned to Forcewave. Apart from that I do not have AD.
Fine with me, if it only works of regular mobs and some(?) heroes.
I have Haunt, Arcane Bomb, OFF and BotEH. Manticore does not fit into my build at all. If I benefitted from spending 6 devotion points just to get that stat, then I would think something was wrong. I wanted to get Viper though, but I could not fit it in.
It is Imp in my case, but Tsunami exists, too. You are welcome.
