Talking [1.0.3.1]Pure Casters with No Main Attacking Skill - Fun Builds with Elemental Electrocute Beam

[1.0.3.1] Pure Casters with No Main Attacking Skill - Fun Builds with Passing Through Elemental Electrocute Beam



It feels cool when you can shoot passing through all enemies in line with a channeling single beam shot and your AoE spells do the rest
Even if you can't channel the beam due to interruption (or lazy), your AoE Spells still did a great job
Not to mention you have a lot of skills point to spare ^^

Now using both Elemental Storm and Wind Devil-Raging Tempest is not an anti mainstream idea anymore.
Crate did a wonderful change for Elemental RR in Raging Tempest

Obliteration is not an AAR, it do less damage than AAR (but AAR can't pierce through), so it needs other spells for support it's damage.

There are a few builds before AoM using Obliteration :
- Elemental Ray Pyro
- Sorcerer-Want to play ARR that pierce trough
- Frozen Lightning II - The Forgotten Obliteration
- The Storm Mage - Lightning Obliteration Druid
- Twin Meteor Fire Obliteration Warlock

Here are several New Pure Caster Builds with Elemental Beam from Tome of the Arcane Wastes
These Pure Casters are using Caster Gear, Caster Off-Hand, and no LMB Auto Attack Skills like Cadence or Savagery. You'll feel really a Pure Caster.
Currently you can facetank Fabius with these builds, less kite on Mad Queen and Final Boss (Master of Flesh), Grava need to be kited.
These builds also nice for Port Valbury run.

I'll add/update my new builds in this thread when they already tested.

Default [1.0.3.1][Caster] Lightning Obliteration Elementalist

See previous/upper page for Lightning Obliteration Vindicator


Update v1.0.5.1

[1.0.3.1][Caster] Lightning Obliteration Elementalist





Grimtools : http://www.grimtools.com/calc/a2d7kEGN
Video : https://youtu.be/jw2MwZKdyHk (I have funny moment with Cronley's Door - It didn't allow me to enter the room)

This build also has strong Defense, thanks to :
Demolitionist
--> Blast Shield (Damage Absorption, Resistances)
--> Flashbang (CC)
--> Vindictive Flame (Stun, Health Regen, Total Speed)

Shaman
--> Mogdrogen's Pact Line (Health & Energy Regen, %Health, Posion and Bleeding Reduction, Increase Health Regen)
--> Wendigo Totem (Our Main Healing Spells)
--> Wind Devil-Raging Tempest (CC)

Blast Shield makes us feel Strong, just throw Flashbang into pack of mobs, then cast our spells, shoot our Electrocute Beam.
You don't have to worry to facetanking (except some special enemies), combination of Blast Shield, Mark of Divinity, and Wendigo Totem really makes you has strong defense. Just shoot everything with your Obliteration Ray !

[1.0.3.1][Caster] Lightning Obliteration Conjurer





Grimtools : http://www.grimtools.com/calc/nZoWJazZ
Video : https://youtu.be/CaxJkfKZxD0


Conjurer has CoF for more Elemental RR, for defensive line :
Occultist
--> Dreeg's Evil Eye Focused Gaze Modifier (Physical Damage Reduction + CC)
--> Blood of Dreeg-Aspect of the Guardian (HP Restoration and Physical Resistance)
--> Summon Familiar/Raven Mend Flash (Healing) --> Pet Version

Shaman
--> Mogdrogen's Pact Line (Health & Energy Regen, %Health, Posion and Bleeding Reduction, Increase Health Regen)
--> Wendigo Totem (Our Main Healing Spells)
--> Wind Devil-Raging Tempest (CC)
--> Summon Briarthorn (Physical and Bleeding Resistance) --> Pet Version

Here are The Pet Version Conjurer, mainly I use Pet for additional defensive line :

[1.0.3.1][Caster] Lightning Obliteration Conjurer - Raven's Healing
Grimtools : http://www.grimtools.com/calc/D2p35zKN

[1.0.3.1][Caster] Lightning Obliteration Conjurer - Briarthorn Physical Shield
Grimtools : http://www.grimtools.com/calc/m23nBx4N
Video : https://youtu.be/s4YF7CQgf4Y

Both of Pets Conjurer above are nice, they can facetank fabius without tonic of mending, suitable for farming Fabius Run
Pets can alternatively used for additional Defensive lines

[1.0.3.1][Caster] Freezing Burning Lightning Sorceress Edea











Thanks to lord_mayak for give me idea for Cold/Lightning Sorceress.
This is a Sorceress with Fire to Lightning Conversion from Cindertouch,
it doesn't give us full Fire to Lightning conversion. But it's never bad idea since our primary damage here is Lightning

Mad Queen, Fabius, Master of Flesh, and Kuba had been tested.
- Mad Queen, play safe with Nullification and Mirror. Nullification her Red Glowing Aura
- Fabius, use Miror when active. Chaos Strike/Obliteration for clearing mobs
- Master of Flesh, use Chaos Strike for transfer position to mobs/boss, Mirror, and you can also use Nullification for yourself (Clearing AoE Damage)
- Kuba, you need to properly aim TSS in right direction, since we will do a lot of manuever for avoid its pools, use Mirror when active

For Fire Burn Phoenix Sorceress, check here

--------------------

Leveling :
I'll try to pointing out some points for leveling up :
- You can leveling with Greater Fireblast (LMB) (Flintcore Bolts component socketing into guns, crossbows, or caster off-hand) combine with Conflagration (Trascendent Relic that gives Conflagration skill)
Conflagration can be place on RMB and use it for bosses.
Use ectoplasm if needed on rings, and Arcanist Mental Alacarity is also welcome
- Take OFF (Olexra's Flash Freeze) from Arcanist, it has great Fire RR and nice CC for mobs/trash
- Take BWC and High Potency modifier for defensive layer (BWC can reduce enemies OA significantly)
- Don't forget Blast Shield if you have enough skill points
- Take Meteors Shower (Ulzuin's Torch Devo Constellation) for clearing speed
- 1 point to Mirror or more for 3 seconds invincible mode
- 1 point to Maivens's Sphere or max it at least 14/12
- Nullification can saves your life a lot. It can be used for clearing AoE damage taken by your toon (Also can dispell enemies spells like Reflection or Cronley's Bubble)
- Sorceress generally very good for Fire Burn Builds. It has very nice support Skills. Levelling should be easy.
OFF, Thermite Mine, Flashbang, BWC can make your toon clearing so fast. Glass Canon build while leveling is Fun !
I ever leveling with this one : https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/2941

Cheers :-)

Looks good

On a side note I'm hoping to try pure Aether version of Obliteration at some point
Yes, that already in mind using gear for full aether conversion, like magelords rings and Decree of Aldritch

Are you using trozan set just for proc? Modifier to wind devil? Percentage boost for lightning? Mythical only has 1 fallen comet now and there are way less sky fragments on other related gear. No more sky is falling.

Initially I want to use light defender sets.
But combining between Mythical and non mythical doesn't give bonus set.
So I go to Trozan Sets.
Yes it's for lightning boosting and also give nice bonus to wind devil.
