Chthon, nice build! Finally we can use PM skill to create fine lightning builds with cool gameplay.

Did you test the build in Crucible? I have crazy idea to try to complete the Crucible with 2H ranged lightning build using Empowered Will of Fate. May be switching to another weaponto be used against some Bosses and Nemesis.

What kind of logic is that? You can't kite every enemy w/o gimping your kill speed. Iron Maiden is a good example of that, you have to facetank her

Theorycrafted GT link =/= Not proof of a concept

You need to field test it to see the actual difference in performance
Not to mention even on the theorycrafted setup you still have extremely low DA and AS
Even sheet DPS isn't an accurate indicator of build's performance at times. AAR builds can get over 200k DPS but they still can't measure upto some builds with 100k DPS

Don't play crucible with every build, so no
Will of Fate isn't strong enough but I imagine Evoker of Elgoloth Savagery Vindicator should do the trick. I can't speak for the success rate of Primal Strike Vindicator in the crucible

I am thinking Skyfallen of Voracity is the best. In this way we can drop the over- usage of seal of blades aura and instead attach a relevant component such as hellbane ammo with electrifying weapons aura on. That way you can remove aura that does not match with the theme of the build!

Voracity has low AS too low for 2h, 1h might be fine but here more is needed. Of Fury/Alacrity are boss

There are other ways outside of Seal of Blades or voracity to get adequate life steal

Skyfallen of Fury is pretty much the best version of Sparkthrower for this build.

I guess I will add it to my To-Do list and will try to test both 2h range builds - Lightning Vindicator and corrupted lightning Druid.

I know you're joking on the seal of blades part, but it's still by far the best weapon component right now for weapon damage builds (and even for some pure casters) unless you specifically need the other seals. That armor is so good couple with the lifesteal.

Doesn't "of Fury" lack the "%total speed" bonus at higher levels, meaning it has less %AS than "alacrity" suffix
Or did I miss something?

Literally the only person who got it right

I am using SoB for the Armor and the Pierce Resist, I can easily use Haunted Steel or Hell bane ammo

Use Haunted steel if you want, I wanted more armor so went with this
And the best suffix would be "of alacrity", I am still unclear as to why "of Fury" is a contender

EDIT:

Okay so "of Fury" has %damage bonus and flat OA. So yeah it's also a good one but priority is getting lightning prefix

As per GT it has less 3% aspeed, lost its total speed bonus but has increases of 40 OA and 40% + to all damage. I could take either one!
