Default [Dual-Wield Lightning] Amarasta's Savage Assault - Lightning based Savagery/ABB Trickster

With Crate finally adding support for Tricksters via Korba Set, the concept of Lightning Tricksters got overshadowed greatly. This guide is meant to present that concept. This build has changed a great deal since vanilla days, for the better I might add.

*Screenshot with Pneumatic Burst, Lethal Assault and Tenacity of the Boar



FAQ -

Why not go with Tempest?

Tempest probably is better than Leviathan. I just wanted to retain the Lightning Whirlpool from vanilla days so went with it.


How does it compare to Maelstrom?

I personally prefer the Maelstrom over this. Mainly because I personally dislike temporary flat damage buffs on auto-attackers.


Why not use Glyph of Kelphat'Zoth?

It's a sheet DPS increase (boosts sheet DPS to 100k+) but to me it felt slower in terms of performance. I lost a considerable chunk of attack speed slowing down my overall build performance which is weird tbh.


Why not use Mythical Light's Defender gloves?

Purely for the proc on the non mythical one.



In Closing -

I like the idea of Cold to Lightning conversion but the lack of attack speed on crucial conversion weapons is rather disappointing to me personally.
I personally enjoyed this build quite a bit, hope you guys do so as well.
