Default [1.0.1.1] [DW Aether Warder] Dual Wield Aether Lightning Warder - Dual Mindwarp

After playing for a while with Dual Wield Ceno's Zenith's Skirmisher (Zenith is really Cool ), it has nice synergies between Aether and Lightning.
Champion is Awesome ! (Very nice concept Ceno, I like the skills that increase your health pool when our HP is running low - remind me to Sacred 2 Inquisitor's Purifying Chastisement, the lower your health, the damage getting bigger)
It looks interesting if we have new Grim Dawn mastery with skills like that. As an example, skills that increase Armor and DA if we getting more hit from enemies

Back to the topic, in this build we make use of nice synergy between Aether and Lightning in devotion constellations. Aether damage we get from Physical to Aether conversion with dual Mindwarp, and Lightning damage from Shaman and Devotion skills.

Now Mindwarp has 100% up time when attack, converting physical to aether. It's not 100% physical to aether conversion like the old one (I used to play Dual Wield Cadence Aether/Physical Witchblade with old Mindwarp). So we need 2 mindwarps for getting more aether. Also Wrathstone component adding up the conversion.
Since Aether - Lightning has good synergies in Devotion, so Warder with Lightning Support is nice choice to go.
For Aether focus build, we go to Dual Wield Battlemage or may be Witchblade with Chaos to Aether Conversion.

Different from Lightning Elementalist, Trickster, or Warder that use Savagery as main attack, this time I use Cadence with Deadly Momentum as source of Physical damage for Aether conversion.

Aether Conversion :
- Mindwarp has around 15% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage (Mine 17%)
- Mindwarp procs : 18% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage (100% Chance on Attack)
- Wrathstone : 10% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage

So with double Mindwarp with Wrathstone component , we'll get :
(15 + 18 + 10) * 2 = 86% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage

In this build, I only use one Wrathstone on weapons, so the conversion is less than 86%

Offensive Setup
These setups using no MI's, have more OA and DA than the previous ones.
The Exalted Treads can be crafted at BS, if you have better luck, you may get the better one. Mine only Stonehide Exalted Tread.
Chausses of Barbaros can be subtituted with Stormcage Legguards.





For Offensive one, we use Elemental Storm and bound it to Storm Totem (Nice AoE damage)

Offensive Setup Grimtools :

*Note :
If you want to use Wind Devil - Raging Tempest, don't take the Elemental Storm, since the RR doesn't stack (GD RR Sheet)


Defensive Setup


Defensive setting use the last 3 points to Behemoth's Giant's Blood

Defensive Setup Grimtools :
http://www.grimtools.com/calc/YZewnp28

Attributes :
Physique - 60
Cunning - 16
Spirit - 12

Skills & Devotion Binding :
Arcane Bomb --> Cadence
Wayward Soul --> Field Command
Elemental Storm --> Storm Totem (Offensive Setup)
Giant's Blood --> Mogdrogen's Pact (Defensive Setup)

OLD SETUP
Spoiler!

~ DW Aether Battlemage - Dual Mindwarpz ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BATTLEMAGE VERSION (CLAIRVOYANT'S - BSoD)
This is DW Aether Battlemage using Clairvoyant's Set and Black Star of Deceit for flat RR
Has 100% Aether conversion.

BATTLEMAGE VERSION (WARBORN)
This is DW Aether Battlemage version using Warbon gear.
Has more Aether conversion from Arcanist Reckless Power.

In this Warborn Battlemage version I only use one Wrathstone on weapons, so the conversion is < 100% Aether conversion.
For DW Battlemage with Iskandra's 100% Aether conversion, please check Kasatscho's build here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WITCHBLADE VERSION
I used to play Aether Witchblade with old mindwarp.
Now with new mindwarp that has 100% uptime when attack, we don't have to wait the Mindwarp's procs to cooldown.

Aether damage got nice attention since 1.0.0.7 when aether resistant of certains mobs had been reduced.
Here is an example of Aether Melee builds using chaos to aether conversion.

In this Witchblade version, I use dual Albrecht's Duality rings for Chaos to Aether conversion, and dual Mindwarp for Physical to Aether.
For Chaos to Aether using Clairvoyant's as suggested by Korsar, you can check on Kasatscho's thread.

Aether Conversion :
Physical to Aether
- Mindwarp has around 15% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage (Mine 17%)
- Mindwarp procs : 18% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage (100% Chance on Attack)
- Wrathstone : 10% Physical Damage converted to Aether Damage

Chaos to Aether
- Flat Chaos damage from Occultist skills and Devotion skill Solael's Witchfire, Possession, Dying God
- Albrecht's Duality has around 50% Chaos Damage converted to Aether Damage (My rings with 52% and 47%)

Build looks good mate!
I dont wanna hijack your thread but you wrote; "For Aether focus build, we go to Dual Wield Battlemage or may be Witchblade with Chaos to Aether Conversion."

I just got my Battlemage to lvl79 and i made it because i had 2x Mindwarp.
Do you mind posting me a grimtools-link with what you think the dualwield mindwarp battlemage should look like?

I thought you never used any MI's in your builds so that kind of surprised me

Idk the build seems out of place at some parts especially on the devotions. I'd rather focus more on one damage type instead spreading bonuses.
I think OA is really lacking, i wouldn't mind on other build types like CT, casters but this particular one needs a lot higher OA imo.

http://www.grimtools.com/calc/r2BYDKNA you can change boots with Golemborn and one component to cap resistances without any rares.

Thank you,
No, you didn't hijack the thread. It's okay
Yes, it's good to go for aether using Battlemage or Chaos conversion Witchblade

Here's the grimtools for Aether Battlemage : http://www.grimtools.com/calc/qNYxnBZ6
Video : Mad Queen

I use Warborn set in my build.
If you want use Iskandra's, and reach 100% Aether conversion, please check this thread : http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54671

Hope it helps you

Yes, it's finally dropped from Bysmiel
It's so rare and have nice poison resist, help me a lot to cap resistances

Aether - Lightning, I just got inspired by Ceno's Zenith.
Btw it's nice setup, has high OA and nice DA.
Perhaps I'll try it later when I have spare times

Thanks
