Default [1.0.3.2] Full Aether AAR Spellbinder / Mage Hunter

[1.0.3.2] Full Aether AAR Spellbinder






These Builds share same concept with This Sorceress and This One
Convert all Elemental Damage to Aether Damage by using The Magelord Rings and Decree of Aldritch

All Elemental Damage (except DoT) in AAR will be converted to Aether, make these builds Full Aether AAR.
Beside that, CT and any other Elemental Skills will do more Aether Damage :
- AAR (Full Aether Damage)
- CT (Full Aether Damage)
- IEE (Full Aether Damage)
- Devastation (Full Aether Damage)

Devotion Skills also will do Aether Damage (I choose different devo skills for different variants) :
- Phoenix (Full Aether Damage with 100% Aether Retaliation)
- Arcane Currents (Full Aether Damage)
- Spear of the Heavens (Full Aether Damage, except DoT Electrocute)
- Arcane Bomb, and any other Devo Skills that has Elemental Damage

Spellbinder has very nice synergy.
Passive Spectral Wrath's Aether RR is so sweet !

We also have Aether Siphon Souls by taking Sear Souls that converts all Vitality Damage to Aether Damage :
- Siphon Souls (Full Aether Damage)

Making this build more Full Aether ^^

Grimtools : Grimtools Link

Devotion Path (Assuming you already have 55/55 devo points) :
- Crossroads Green
- Quill
- Hawk
- Crossroads Blue
- Eel
- Widow
- Remove Eel
- Empty Throne
- Chariot of the Dead
- Oklaine's Lantern
- Eel
- Crossroads Yellow
- Harvestman's Scythe
- Remove Eel
- Remove Crossroads Blue
- Remove Crossroads Green
- Phoenix
- Toad
- Attak Seru, the Mirage
- Crossroads Red
- Behemoth (3 Points)

Default [1.0.3.2] Full Aether AAR Mage Hunter

Check Post Above (1st Post) for Full Aether AAR Spellbinder

[1.0.3.2] Full Aether AAR Mage Hunter - Spear of the Heavens








In this setup, we're using Aether Spear of the Heavens (All Lightning Damage will be converted to Aether)

Video : Fabius, Grava, MQ

Grimtools : Grimtools Link

Note : For more DPS, we should use Word of Pain's Death Sentence, it has % Aether RR.
You can sacrifice some skills (ie. Inquisitor Seals or Callidor's Tempest) if you can't stand too much active skills, or still keeping those skills but invest some skills points in WoP's Death Sentence (12/12) by taking points from Vigor / Steel Resolve


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


[1.0.3.2] Full Aether AAR Mage Hunter - Phoenix





In this setup we can take all Tree of Life, Spear of the Heavens, and Phoenix.
You can take all SotH last node and change weapon augment to Coven's Terror or Ravager's Eye for more health
Ravager's Eye is very nice augments that will give you HP and DA (You need to make friend with Barrowholm faction to get this augments)

You can also use nice roll MIs if you want more HP

Video : Mad Queen, Fabius, Grava

Another well-performing AAR build, nice =)
I used different setup, but ended with almost the same numbers

Great MQ and Grava kills. I don't get why you don't go for those juicy bonuses of full Iskandra's set (1,3k armor seems squish af) or maybe use Codex of Lies for more RR.

EDIT: Also Iskandra's Text got casting speed bonus which is a direct damage boost to AAR, isn't it?

Also I think he should put point on ravenous earth -> decay, 25% dmg reduction is very good. 20 points Elementals balance is just a bit much when your aether build only has +1% crit benefit when its over 12.

leveling past onepointer Elemental balance is borderline useless for AAR build, the overall impact on DPS is close to zero.
