Default [Melee Aether] Theodin's Disciple - DW Fleshwarped Strikes Spellbinder

This is a very generic and easy to figure out build based on the brand new Auto-attack replacer Fleshwarped Strike granted by the new MI dropped by Theodin Marcell a.k.a Shaper of Flesh.

Before anyone else talks about the lack of Aether Spellbreakers or Aether Reapers, check this thread out.




Screenshots -

1. Clairvoyant Setup-
Spoiler!



2. korsar's Setup
Spoiler!




FAQ-

Would Haunt and Blademaster's Talisman work?

Yes both of the relics are good but Belgothian's 1 second reset is much more valuable to a CDR build such as this one.


Why not use Decree of Aldritch or Magelord Rings?

Magelord rings and Decree of Aldritch are a net DPS loss and therefore are not BiS.


Why not go with Imp and Solemn Watcher on the Clairvoyant Setup?

Now korsar's devotion uses these his overall setup gives you extra defenses, I personally didn't feel like losing out on some extra attack speed that I get from my current setup. Go with whichever one you feel comfortable with.


What is more preferable Clairvoyant or Krieg?

Personally I have no opinion regarding either of them. They are both solid end game sets. Krieg set is much more easier to farm and therefore is the best one to suggest for NEW PLAYERS. But for anyone having both sets I'd suggest try both and go with what you want


Do I need any specific affix on the set?

Not really you can easily make a good end game build around this item with any crap affix you get. To prove a point I'll attach a screen and a GT link using a crappy rolled weapon inside the spoiler tags below.






In Closing-

Be sure to checkout korsar's take on the concept.

The build is indeed pretty straightforward but I figured I might as well post a guide for those interested in building around this item. I am glad Fleshwarped Strikes got added to the game as it works not only with Aether but with Vitality as well

Overall it's a fun build and I hope you guys enjoy it.

You beat me to post this build
What I've noticed - Fleshwarped Strikes is very nice auto-attack replacer, much better that Beronath's Fury and Necro WPS are good dps increase.
BiS scepter is Void-Touched of Conflagration, it looks like this:

nice to see the weapon in action already..

quite sad though that we did not get an equivalent weapon for the Chthonians, a tentacle weapon would have been perfect! now I feel sorry for this faction already!

seriously great build guys, and a looks fun!

There's a distinct lack of spellbreakers in here.

Chthonians are probably the least loved faction in the game where everything turns around Aetherials. Even though Chthonians have the best story, best nemesis, more disciplined and fight for a just cause in terms of celestial affairs. I hope there will be more focus on them in the future, as they truly are a gem on this game in lore and the atmosphere they give to the overall gameplay.

You're awfully into aether builds, dead god.

Some of the mortals claim that Empyrion had returned, but I know for certain he's merely a pretender.

Aren't you one as well, "Chthon"?

If this existed it should be a big vagina, like Aetherials has a big dildo-weapon

Wouldn't it make sense to have at least one different weapon component here? You are not converting any physical damage, so maybe Haunted Steel or Seal of BLades (or even Seal of Might)?
