Thumbs Up [1.0.1.1] DW Lightning Druid - The Frozen Lightning

#include <frozenLightning.h>
int main() {

~ Dual Wield Lightning Druid - The Frozen Lightning ~







This thread is made to response for this thread

May be the infamous Druid is more known from the Trozan Set / Build

This build show that DW Lightning Druid is still good and viable for clearing Ultimate

Videos :
~ Ultimate Fabius
~ Ultimate Fabius Cronley Run
~ Aetherial Mobs Flash Run





- If you don't have Crystallum, you can use Empowered Lightning Rod or Stormheart

- Empowered Lightning Rod is better than Stormheart due to more AS and + to Savagery and Storm Touched skills (Check here)

- If you don't have weapons above, you can try your luck crafting Lightning Exalted Dagger :



Craft it via Blacksmith "Enchanted Lightning Implement" :



- Run Speed is a bit slow, so if you have good boots with Run Speed or Of Haste or Of Featherstep suffixes, don't hesitate to use it

- Good roll Cronley's Ring with OA, Attack Speed, and Lightning Damage is good alternative if you don't have Glyph of Kelphat'Zoth

- One advantage of using Druid is it has high Crit Damage from Stormcaller's Pact + Elemental Balance, so we must stack good enough OA.
Good roll Dreeg-Sect Legguards or perhaps a Wraithborne Legwraps for our Pants

- Phantom-Thread Girdle or Guthook Belt can be as alternative Belt.

- Any Gear/Skills/Devotion suggestion is very welcome


Grimtools :

- Press 'S' for Masteries and Devotion Tabs
- Relic Completion Bonus : +1 to Blood Pact and +1 to Entangling Vines

Devotion in Grim Dawn is like a Puzzle and a bit tricky
There's "Affinity Requirement" for Devo Constellation, also some bonuses after completing Constellation
You can refund spent devo points with Spirit Guide (Sahdina in Devils Crossing, Novi in Coven's Refuge, or Rena in Malmouth Steelcap District) - cost Aether Crystals and some Iron Bits

*Note : Point can't be refunded if the constellation has depedency with other constellation bonus

For devotions in this Lightning Druid, you can follow this order :
Crossroads Green
Crossroads Blue
Hawk
Scholar's Light
Eel
Widow
Crossroads Purple
Wraith
Rhowan's Crown
Crossroads Red
Viper
Jackal
Chariot of the Dead
Lizard
Solemn Watcher
Refund Scholar's Light
Refund Crossroads Green
Refund Crossroads Red
Refund Crossroads Blue
3 Points Behemoth
3 Points Spear of the Heavens

If you follow the order, you should be able to complete it succesfuly :-)

Also some note for this Druid :
Since AoM release, Wind Devil's Raging Tempest (Shaman Skills) now has %Elemental Resistance
It stacks with Elemental Storm's Flat RR (Resistance Reduction)
You should allocate some points to Raging Tempest (12/12), just remove points from TSS
Resistance Reduction will boost your damage significantly
Like this : https://www.grimtools.com/calc/a2EOpA3Z

May be if I have time later, I'll try to update this build to level 100 setups and use Mythical Gears

There are definitely some decisions that I don't agree with, but nice attempt.

i wouldnt have gone same way too, still seing OP builds i can say that he sure loves some gear that are always around, and not use MIs most players wont get, which is something often asked and appreciate
but and more important,
this build he posted is sure more than just an "attempt" which sound a bit rude imo.

Damn, didn't mean to be rude or anything. It's a working build and it's decent since it kills Fabius and clears Ultimate. Sorry

Well, I've spent a lot of time optimizing my Druid (since it's 1 out of 2 complete characters I have), and I have few general comments about your choices:

- Reckless Tempest is a decent chunk of damage for us, I would try and include it in our build
- Healing devotions don't really contribute to druid's tankiness since we have a massive heal in a form of overcapped Wendigo (I suggest leaving 15/12 in it). So in general I would say it's a waste for the build
- I don't agree with your amulet choice too. Yes attack speed is great, but you already have like a huge metric tonn of it. At this point you should try and test advantages of having more conversion/oa/da/resists in a form of Ultos Gem versus attack speed and +skills of Empowered Essence of Beronath
- Heart of the Wild is optimal when it's at 10/10
- Do you really need Primal Spirit?
- Storm Totem, in my opinion, only looks good on Light Defender Elementalist.

I will stop here, any extra suggestions would look like I am imposing my druid build

I tried to build it around your gear choices. (Which are solid, except the amulet)

I still don't understand why you are using Sky Shard tho.

Bind Mines to Savagery and Reckless Tempest to Vines. Spam vines frequently.
