[3.0] Sidefx Mjolner Velocity - Clear maps like a god!

Hello, I'm Sidefxmayinclde
I wanted to play to play something flashy so I started thinking. We have not really seen a decent Mjolner build in sometime, why dont we give it a try! I bring to you my "Mjolner Velocity" build. Nothing more satisfying then blowing up whole lines of mobs with a slight flick of the wrist. I really hope you guys enjoy!
This guide will be updated overtime with more information as I progress into the league.

Path of Building

This build focus on utilizing the weapon Mjolner and equipping two of these bad boys. This is a life based build so perfect for 3.0!
If you enjoy flashing things and having it all go pop before your very eyes then this is the build for you! This build is strictly a mapping build and the idea behind this build is to get it to clear maps as quick as possible (Endgame bossing is not possible with this build as the single target is not near competitive)

This build is a SOFTCORE viable build.

Any questions please feel free to ask on my stream! Www.twitch.tv/Sidefxmayinclde or Click this image! please dont forget to FOLLOW to know when i go live!


Shreds maps in minutes (will give more detail as i progress into higher tiers)
Tons of gem options (currently going with Spark Nova (the new jewel) and Ball lightning
Utilizes the new cyclone pathing!


Hard to gear as you need TONS of different stats
Could be frustrating early gear gem levels and ascendancy mean tons
Gear could end up getting slightly pricey


+2 skill points, we need all the points we can get

Required Uniques

The bread and butter of the build without these it wouldnt be possible

These gloves give you IRON WILL (strngth effects spell damage as well) and since we already have the stat requirements its a win win!

This is a beast. Helps us get the stats we need while also giving us more leech and giving us tons of damage while leeching!

Since we are all lightning damage this helps us convert some of that to cold. Giving us more potential to free then shatter also gives us a better up-time on Shock

My current rares

Strength roll, life and res

Life roll, and tripple res

Double Strength roll and life (could fine a res on it 2)

Strength, life and res and even a little lightning damage too!

Life, res and move speed

Stat Priority/Flask

Stat Priority: Strength - Resistances - Life

Flasks: Im currently using
Adding in a vinkatar ASAP

Gem links

6l Setup: Cyclone - Faster attacks - Additional Accuracy - Culling - Onslaught - Enhance (that order for 4l/5l/6l

Build Overview

This build requires you to get 412 strength on your toon before you can equip the weapon,
also requires you to get 300 intelligence but as inquisitor that is not a problem. That's Over all the most difficult thing about this build. You maye get luckly like I did as i started this as my 3.0 league starter. Any further questions please feel free to ask.

My other builds if you are intrested

the current set up is with projectile scaling in tree Spark with nova Jewel and Ball lightning,

another set up I play is discharge with Shock nova ;)
Looks like it could be fun and flashy. may have to try at some point this league
Hey, played a Spark Mjolner Berserker to lvl 89, can confirm its a fun playstyle. Switched to Discharge now so I can do guardians.
Hope you dont mind some criticism, spent a lot of time theorycrafting around similar builds:

- Fortify is HUGE defensively and I dont think your onslaught culling setup is worth it in exchange. And if you just use this 4 link you can use all your mana problems with an elreon ring for example (since you are using a mana flask). Also Kaoms heart, expensive though.

- You listed Carnage heart as required unique, would think of it more like a niche budget option. Stats are worse than you get from rares, and the leech should be barely noticeable. You could put Life Leech gem in on of your Mjolners maybe for leech.

- If youre just speedfarming maps anyway, you could work towards a devotos for the movement speed. Or maybe Rats nest for your build.

Cheers, and thanks for the guide always appreciated :)
This looks like a build I'd play once I save up more currency :P
Will give it a try, i have 35 chaos on the harbinger league to make my templar, hope it will be faster than my rf totem boss melter ahah
