Arcanist also has Mirror which is pretty OP and can help a ton in tight spots. Unfortunately since we already use a shield, have two CBs, have back-up healer this build rarely gets into tight spots...
With all do respect that is straight up wrong conclusion.

Im testing with it and it has highest potential for aether dmg but what is gimping it is lack of auto attack replacer, you are forced to use shard or smth

i have a melee chaos-aether Warlock with more emphasis on chaos, but as you stated, using shard straightup sucks, the damage output is horrible but survivability is decent.

With all due respect you're the one who is mistaken. Occultist is better in melee support, a battlemage is only slightly behind so most won't notice the difference but a witchblade is definitely better than a battlemage

Pretty much what JoV said, it has a got great potential but a melee aether warlock while doable is a real pain in the butt to build cause neither masteries have a default attack replacer.

Btw, JoV have you tried Troll Rage?
Sometimes i wonder why it's even in the game, it's like the turtle of relics.

Thin on points, AoE isn't a big issue i noticed since Flame Torrent + Malice clear trasg

Interesting i have pure melee fire based warlock and i feel the same. Damage o/p isn't the greatest.

I don't, if i wanted more physical to aether a battlemage would be the way go. Here the majority of conversion happens from chaos to aether.

Ok, I dont want to argue so I will just leave this here.

DM and mind warp proc on:


.

Dont forget that this setup has 10 flat (manticore) and -15% (BotEH) more aether rr

Wait is that Discord?
Why go for Discord? (because of Arcanist's innate elemental support?)

Btw, you're right no point in arguing
Highly unlikely we'll ever agree on anything. You're the Offensive Ability whore i am the Attack Speed whore
