I like attack speed, the game already penalizes you enough for playing ranged so i don't recommend switching from Dread Skull

I won't be able to dual-wield if i switch the belt. I am aware of the Medal that allows me to go DW-ranged but Mark is really helpful so i use it on pretty much all of my builds where i don't have a CB skill

Right, my bad, I forgot about dual-dielding skill from belt, sorry.

Btw, thanks for the compliment. Zeus happens to be my favorite Olympian.

Thanks for updating! Really cool build. Couple questions though...

1) How are the Wind Devils doing for you DPS-wise? I typically hear mediocre things about them, do you invest in them because you need more places to put points or are they actually a worthwhile source of DPS?

2) Basically same question but for Mogdrogen's Pact. Do you really need all that energy regen? I typically see that skill as a 1-point activation for HotW and Oak Skin.

Welcome, this guide's update was long over-due. I was busy levelling the character since the original guide was a concept guide made using screenshots by respecing an existing Ultos Conjurer- hence the long delay.

1)
-Imo, their AI seems more sucky than Blade Spirits. But Maelstrom is really strong skill.
-One can go for Storm Totem for better results.
-DPS wise, i have done nemesis runs where i don't cast them and i still don't have trouble with enemies.
-Think of them as filler skills when you are kiting

2)
-Hmm, it's a free source of more flat regen which goes along nicely with Savagery's second modifier. You can refund points from it and keep it at one point.

1) I see, that's a good point to have a source of DPS while kiting.

2) Didn't think about the synergy with Tenacity. Makes sense when you put it that way.

Thanks!

I generally don't need to use that one. Sometimes he can freeze me at a bad time but mostly i am fine which is why i didn't mention Hoarfrost Ointment

Great build i just dont understand why you use arcane bomb in devotion, dont make sense to me since you are lightning i would rather use the points in recless tempest instead both for the nice skill and boost to lightning dmg. Ill use reckless tempest instead and try the build.

Funny I play the exact same character but with dual crystallum swords! Devotions differ as well. I try to beat the crucible with it and at least it feels doable compared to elementalist. But OA is a big issue for me I have a hard time to go over 2500 unbuffed... working on this.

Oh and I use aspect of the guardian as it helps a lot in the crucible.

Btw do you believe that wind devils with this investment beats storm totem dps wise?
