Thumbs Up [1.0.5.1] Lifestealer DW Fire Burn Sorceress / Sorcerer - 14s MQ, Gargabol, Fabius, Kuba, Grava

[1.0.5.1] Lifestealer DW Fire Burn Sorceress / Sorcerer - 14s MQ, Gargabol, Fabius, Kuba, Grava






Video :
>>> Bastion of Chaos - Shar'Zul (Offensive Setup) NEW!
>>> Ancient Grove - Deathstalker - Gargabol (Defensive Setup)
>>> Some Nemesis (Defensive Setup)


Build Details :





A few year ago, I was struggling to make DW Melee Fire Sorceress works well
Tested a lot of times, changing devotions, skills, gears, etc...
It always died in the hand of Midas Fabius

With AoM released, it can works very well at this moment (tested this build since 1.0.4.1)
Arcanist now has Attack Speed bonus on one of it's Exclusive skills (Favor Melee Builds)
With increasing level cap to 100, it means we have more Skills points, Devo points, also nice Mythical gear versions

Why No Maivens ?
This Build shows that Non Maivens Arcanist Build is viable
- lots of spare skills points
- no total damage reduction
- clear visual, your cool illusions gear will be clean

This Build's theme is Lifestealer, so more Weapon Damage is inspiriting the soul of Lifestealer
That's why I maxed out Fire Strike and Explosive Strike

About Blast Shield, we can maxed it out for more defense
But I think : Phoenix, High Potency, Flashbang, Searing Light, Static Strike, Ulzuin's Wrath, Mirror, Nullification, Blazing Charge are good enough for supporting current Blast Shield as defensive layers.
Also rememer we have nice Lifesteal, not to mention Ghoul and Wayward Soul
More DPS = More Lifesteal

What will waiting us in the forgotten continents gods...

Wow, it's been a while since I saw a build, not twisted to death for Crucible runs or with a megaton DA.

Very nice job, man!

You have 1 unused point and two points overcap in Elemental Balance and no Maiven. A bit sloppy for a melee build, Maiven is just too good not to take it, even if you invest said 3 points in it, it's still 12% damage absorption.

Static strike beyond 1pt and explosive strike beyond 12/12 feel inefficient when there are other amazing things you could be picking up.

Blast shield -> 14/12 for the extra 1% max res
Maivens + 1 point conversion, durability and CC res
Max Brimstone because flat damage

Overcapped Explosive Strike doesn't look like it'd be worth it on your build since you lack the WPS to actually stack Burn damage. Soft capping ES makes sense

Static Strike is great but you should consider Maiven's and more points in Blast Shield

This setup is not the "Must Have" one
Sure we can change it later with more preference skills points allocation
(Testings are needed for min-maxing it)

Ah okay, you should probably add that to the main thread to make things more clear for future posters.
