You are missing -30% Aether RR.

There is nothing that Arcanist gives outside of 25% crit and inquis as Deadly aim with CDR itmes.

Overall Apostate is boss for Aether DE

How to level this guy before 94?
Is it strong enough before Dreadwalker's Grace?

I recommend a Spectral shield Asap if you want to play DE from scratch. Then move to Siphon to nuke mobs

So Mirror, CDR, reduce energy cost and devastation don't add anything?

Or did you not mention Devastation because of Taco Bell Earth?

You forgot cast speed, free 30% spirit and Maiven :roll: And Arcanist has better gear choise that Apostate.

Might as well make Devastation build then and drop DE. JoV already posted one. As for mirror+CDR, i'd hope not to need it if all my main abilities life steal like crazy

If you want to play DE build through and through then highest Damage is apostate. Also skillpoint spread. If you focus on SS and DE fully you will have mediocre devastation with medicore DE

Haven't gotten around to it but i will certainly make the apostate happen. Uroborruk helm and hex launcher have some pretty sick modifiers

Agreed on free spirit and CS but not on Maiven
Don't get me wrong, I use it on all arcanists I just hate that skill with a passion. The only build where I don't mind using it is on my CT Battlemage as I have it at Max Ultimate Rank. Basically Maiven is the skill I hate the most in this entire game surpassing Cadence

Didn't mean to point at a Meteor build. You can use only one devastation and still be fine
If we overlook Devastation, Spellbinder looks better I say this as most of the gear seems to be tailored more towards Spellbinder than Apostate and as Ptirodaktill mentioned we have Maiven, Free Spirit and Cast Speed. Energy management would be much better with Spellbinder. And there's Eternity and CDR for Spellbinder
