Theory on Morgoneth

I know this isn’t close to an optimized build, but I’m hoping you guys can help me with the concept.

I am trying to combine the following items:
Morgoneth set (cold melee)
Mythical Bane of the Winter King (awesome 2h with +2 to skills in Shaman and Nightblade)
Conduit of Wild Whispers to convert Primal Strike to cold damage

It should have pretty darn good resit reduction:
-18% Mythical Bane of the Winter King
-30% Night’s Chill
-37% Wind Devil
32 from elemental storm

TOTAL: -117 Resist Reduction + 20% from Viper

Issues I see:

  • Low Attack Speed
  • ADCtH (wind devils will reduce resistance to life leech a little…)
  • Resists don’t have huge overcaps
  • Not amazing OA/DA (tried to offset with getting Eye of Korvaak Devotion)
  • Currently has a badge of mastery to max out Primal Strike

I’m open to any and all improvements.

Similiar concept was tried by none other than @Valinov and it was okay-ish. Decent, like 6-7 minute Crucible Gladiator 150-170 clear speeds. Main problem was that there are just too many buttons to press to spam Primal Strike effectively.

Your concept is pretty flawed tho (devotion map, components, augments, some item choices as well). But even when Valinov tested more or less optimized version it was just okay-ish.

Have you guys ever tried to make an Aether Primal Strike Druid/Ritualist build for that greenish lightning (a reason good enough for some theorycrafting)?

yes and it’s mediocre at best
