In my experience with the skyfire grenado purifier I did, elemental blast was not worth the ulzuin belt. But it could be different since we are talking about different skills.

Tried that in grimtools. Well, loss of 180 base OA hits this build a lot. I'm sure Arcanoweave Cord is suboptimal choice here

Any cataclysm build is a good build in my book.

Nice

It seems to performs really well vs large target for some reason. Weird shit (in a good way) happens from 1:55 to 2:10.

Have you considered hard capping Melstrom? It seems to do very well in this build.

You also get a neat little extra lightning proc all over the place.

3 storm shards (up to 1000 lightning damage per second), 3 Wind Devils (up to 600 per second), 3 Storm Totems (up to 1500 per second), Reckless Tempest (up to 250 per second) = 3350 base single target damage per second. For comparison, Doom Bolt 26/16 deals ~2300 total damage per hit and Blade Arc 26/16 with transmuter does ~5000 per hit with 2H weapon.
And 260k electrocute ticks on top of that

I think yes, it should work. I lose some trap resist but with Ulo it should remain at 60%. Reasonable suggestion, I'll try that!

Try it with even more demigii too maybe

https://www.grimtools.com/calc/dVbDk4gN changed medal which nets you more %lightning and electrocute. I also put SB at 24. It's almost 200% more lightning dmg. With all your dmg sources this should have a noticeable impact

Yah but it's still strange how it goes into overdrive vs large targets. there is no shotgun. Edit: it's the racial dmg actually lol

Maybe, maybe. Personally I prefer to have that racial bonus against basilisks and Kuba, but moar damage should be better. Will test it.

Yes, makes sense.
No shotgun, but still 1.5 Doom Bolts per second

Doom Bolt needs more power yes

In 0.2 you could do 1.5 DB but nerfed it for reasons i can't understand

Nope.
In this setup my success rate isn't even 50%, I died 3 times in a row on wave 160 or 170, then I swapped to my default setup and made it in first try.
Either Footpads of Grey Magi or Direwolf crest are mandatory here.
