Default [1.0.5.1] Krieg's DW Aether spellbinder - MoE/MoT/TD

This build is a DW Aether spellbinder. The Devotion setup is based on a build by Suede Lee, in combination with Krieg's set.

Grim Tools link:
https://www.grimtools.com/calc/DV9AeYnV

In-game screenshot:


Skills:
  • Damage: Aether
  • Actives: Fleshwarped Strikes, Chaos Strike, Siphon Souls, Callidor's Tempest, Krieg's Wrath, Ravenous Earth, Mark of Torment, Mirror of Ereoctes, Aether Corruption
  • Passives: Iskandra's Elemental Exchange, Maiven's Sphere of Protection, Reckless Power, Spectral Binding
  • WPS Skills: Reaping Strike, Mutilate

Devotion Skills:
  • Aetherfire - Bound to Fleshwarped Strikes
  • Giant's Blood - Bound to Iskandra's Elemental Exchange
  • Time Dilation - Bound to Chaos Strike
  • Spear of the Heavens - Bound to Maiven's Sphere of Protection
  • Hungering Void - Bound to Reaping Strike
  • Ghoulish Hunger - Bound to Reckless Power

Items:
  • Weapons: Aetherfire Heart of Theodin Marcell of Fury & Mythical Mindwarp
  • Helm: Krieg's mask
  • Chest: Krieg's Chestguard
  • Pants: Thunderstruck Grava'Thul's Legguards of the Flesh Hulk
  • Belt: Mythical Cord of Violent Decay
  • Boots: Krieg's Boots
  • Gloves: Krieg's Gloves
  • Shoulders: Krieg's Shoulders
  • Rings: Magelord Band & Magelord Signet
  • Amulet: Conduit of Undying Whispers
  • Medal: Mythical Mark of Anathema
  • Relic: Blademaster's Talisman

Binds:
  • LM: Freshwarped Strikes
  • RM: Chaos Strike
  • 1: Siphon Souls
  • 2: Callidor's Tempest
  • 3: Krieg's Wrath
  • 4: Ravenous Earth
  • Q: Mark of Torment
  • W: Mirror of Ereoctes
  • MM: Aether Corruption
  • M4: Tonic of Mending
  • M5: Elixir of Spirit

This build enables the possibility to chain Mark of Torment with Mirror of Ereoctes. Aeon's Hourglass devotion resets the cooldowns. All credits for this idea go to Suede Lee's devotion build.

Most Spellbinder builds have fairly low Health, which I tried to tackle with my own build. I think that turned out pretty decently. Higher Health is exchanged for DPS, though, as opposed to Chthon's Aether Spellbinder builds (link).

I am always looking for feedback, please discuss!

With spectral binding it's impossible to had a low health.

A few things:

Replace all the AV salves with Ugdenbog Leathers. It's just better.

Reallocate skill points. Transfer all points from IEE to Elemental Balance. You don't have Elemental to Aether conversion and crit is much more useful. Remove OFF. It doesn't affect bosses and you won't have any problems with trash for this build anyway so OFF is useless. Remove Foul Eruption. If you didn't know, it obly triggers if RE kills something which is very unlikely with your build. Mindwarp provides the RR anyway. Transfer it to Decay. Pretty sure you'll have lots of points left after that so spend them on maxing Mark, Mirror and overcapping Maivens. You also don't need Conversion overcapped. Stun res already gets to 80 without much investment.

Won't be able to provide sample grimtools cause I'm on mobile but you already know Chthon's build so you can use that as reference.

I've been wondering: it's not possible to fit in Manticore constellation in there, is it?

I do, but I have to admit I wasn't sure if DA was more important than armor rating + health regen, as I already maxed bleeding resist without Ugdenbog Leather anyway.

Added new version to first post. Much beefier and more solid overall I feel.
