I'm not sure why it will not let you buyback jackal then - perhaps you have another constellation that requires the red?

Also, just kind of a blanket announcement, I haven't had time to answer questions on this build and don't have plans to update it for the expansion. However, it should still provide a good "stepping stone" on the way to making a proper Ultos-based lightning elementalist.

I'm trying this as my first character, and I'm level 59 in A2 elite now. Would it be viable to use primal strike either as a second auto attack or a nuke as a clearing skill? Thermite mines with reckless tempest just feels awful to me. I don't know if losing the -lightning resist from thermite mines is too much though. Thanks

On thermite mines with tempest: This build is now several game versions outdated, as I've said several times now (including in the post immediately before yours). I do not recommend taking tempest for this build anymore. You NEED the RR from thermite mines. However, reckless tempest with thermites is bad - switch to elemental storm instead IMO.

On PS as a nuke: It could work. I've seen a few elementalist and vindicator variants using it for such, but i haven't setup a calc myself for this.

Thanks, I'll pick up elemental storm and start leveling it on the side to switch over to.
