This is what Red Lightning looks like in game.
I wanted to post this before the patch notes today but got lazy and now surprisingly enough Valguur Set supports Corrupted Storm transmuter. So instead of adding it to the Vitality Hagarrad guide I am posting it in a separate thread.
Below I’ll show two setups one is the original setup and the other one will be around Valguur Set
1. Conjurer - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/gZwKEQqZ

2. Ritualist - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/D2pnyRpZ

What is that Conjurer wearing?
Why not go for Valguur’s Life Leech RR?
You are tanky enough for the campaign, but more importantly going full Valguur turns this into Ptiro’s Leech Tankwhich is a different build entirely. For Storm Totem focus, the Groble MI is BiS.
Is Valguur not usable on Conjurer?
It is but I see no point in using it. My current setup gives me more damage.
Have you tried Light’s Defender Helm on Ritualist?
Yes and the CDR from Valguur’s Helm makes it much more valuable.
The Light’s Defender Shoulderpads on the Ritualist look odd, are they BiS?
Don’t think so, I didn’t want to add another MI so I kinda stuck with them.
Isn’t the Conjurer variant basically a Doom Bolt build?
Not quite, you see most of the time I don’t bother casting DB at all. The Groble MI’s skill mod makes Storm Totem a good damage source. Once you get 2+ storm totems, the damage stacks really fast.
Which is better among the two setups?
I prefer the Conjurer personally but the Ritualist is pretty good as well. Probably is a little stronger.
Does the Groble MI require specific rolls?
NOPE! The base item’s skill mod is key to this build.
Where to farm the Groble MI?
Refer to this thread - http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61826
Is Fang of Ch’thon better than Mythical Damnation?
4% CDR and RR proc make Fang of Ch’thon BiS on both setups.
Is the Groble MI better than Valguur’s Focus?
Yes, that skill mod is the key to a proper Storm Totem focused build.
Is Rattosh not good for this build?
Rattosh is a great devotion but not going for it gives me more freedom in devotions. Of course one could go with Rattos-TD-DG setup.
Is Solael’s Witchblade not usable here?
While it’s true we have a little bit of Chaos damage left on our DB but Harvestman’s Energy regen, DA and other defensive stats is what I prefer.
Do you really need Harvestman’s Scythe?
We have a lot of energy so feel free to drop it. You won’t miss it.
Firstly credits to Superluff for introducing the TD Bolter concept to the forums and to skipperx for reminding me of the Conduit skill mod.
The build is fun, this is much more enjoyable to me personally than my otherVitality Casterthat I posted. I was particularly surprised at the Ritualist as I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much, but it was pretty fun as well.
Hope you guys enjoy these builds as much as I did.
