Dps/Note on Calculating Damage:
Spoiler

(With Linked PoB avg hit and 122% cast speed):


It's easiest to just calculate Storm burst DPS using your PoB data and this spreadsheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-bKUMuWRqNujEw343Vz4lF88fjj0p2aMNKIyAr1PM38/edit


Gearing:
Spoiler

No matter what else you do, you need, bare minimum: ele as chaos weapons, eternity shroud, two call of the brotherhood (non-shaped are fine), phys to lightning support, and cold to fire support. If you plan on using EK or another skill, you need to convert the other half of your physical damage somehow (wrath conversion watcher's eye, synthesized implicit gloves are really the only two options)

Base cost is pretty high right now because of how inflated ele as chaos daggers are, but you can probably craft them for 6-7 ex apiece.

Base endgame gear/costs:
2x Call of the Brotherhood 60c
6L Eternity Shroud with 5% roll 10 ex
2x Ele as chaos multimod daggers 14 ex self crafted
Storm Burst Enchant Shaped Helm 2-3 ex?
Arcane Surge Watchers 2-3 ex
Rest of the Shaped Gear 1-2 ex (make sure shaped amulet has phys added as lightning)
Bottled Faith 3.5 ex

Total ~35-40 ex with current prices. Cotb have to be shaped eventually which is cheapest with Trash to Treasure, so that's another 15-16 ex for both prophecies.

It's a build that ends up fairly expensive but will reward you heavily for investing in the right stats


Current Gear:

Links:

- Ele focus 6L for dmg











Priority is lv21 storm burst, then 23 quality on the whirling/faster attacks/culling


Notes on Crafting:
Spoiler

Weapons: Start with ilvl85+ shaped 1h of your choice. Sceptre/wand are good for damage, daggers are better for mobility (higher aps better for whirling blades. The 20% crit difference between an ambusher and a platinum kris barely matters.

Use alterations until you get T1 Ele added as chaos (16-20%) by itself. If you hit a good t1 Suffix (t1 attack speed/t1 multi/t1 spell crit) augment and hope for T1 ele added as chaos. Regal the 1-2 mod item, and annul off the mod you regaled. If the item bricked start over. Ideally you'd want to replace the flat lightning to spells I have crafted with "Gain X% of Physical as extra lightning damage" but that requires a very lucky regal.

Belt is fossil crafted, Pristine + Prismatic + Metallic. In theory you can get another gg suffix like spell dmg/cast speed during flask effect.


I'll do my best to keep this up to date and respond to any questions

Posted a quick hydra map - sorry for pauses while thinking about betrayal etc ahah. Will get around to an uber kill where I don't flail around panicking


Delve you probably want to swap in a phasing flask but aside from that its fine

Pretty fast Hydra run. Thanks for video. Any tips for leveling?

Lifesprigs, etc just go storm brand+onslaught at 12 with storm burst in chest for single target. Bereks pass is a big boost at 20, 28 lightning spire trap, rush ele overload on tree, once you do the first ascendancy and get harness the void switch to cotb rings with cold to fire on storm burst. I barely swapped any other gear all the way to mapping

What's the survivability of this like? I find EB+MoM to fall off pretty hard in higher tier maps, unless i'm doing something wrong or playing too aggressively. Also, is 1.1k ES enough for MoM?
Not really haha, I'd get more if I easily could. Surivability is okay but you mainly rely on the long range of storm burst + high movement with whirling blades. The 5k + 1.1k mom is enough of a buffer to get you through mistakes, but multiproj memories in tier 16s get pretty sketch

Putting up a somewhat messy uber kill, 1 death

interesting build. the lightning -> cold -> fire conversion and double-dipping at each stage for the extra chaos seems like a very powerful and flexible way to scale damage, and can be used for any skills that's phys to lightning or even just lightning?

for spells, storm burst and divine ire are the two obvious ones. storm brand, orb of storms, storm call i think should also scale similarly (without the phys to lightning of course). and on the attack side, lightning arrow, ts, barrage should all work too with some conversion (need to swap to bow + quiver of course)

the gear requirement/cost is high, but eternity shroud actually opens up a rly flexible way to scale damage that works with many skills (with minimal gear changes; storm burst and divine ire is literally a single gem swap i think), that the cost may be worth it, as you can share most of the gear between characters. have you tried other set ups OP?

question on sustain, how are you leeching life? is it purely through atziri's flask (and heal/regen via life/faith flask)? the only other place i can think of is the amulet % chaos leeched as life mod, but you don't seem to have any.

Yeah, i've done a lot of testing on PoB and most physical and lightning spells work very well, arc, stormcall and storm brand are a bit on the lower side in terms of dps, but that's to be expected, especially since storm brand is low effort.

I'm mostly using Ethereal knives myself, which gets up to 7m dps with a decent setup, but i'll pretty much put every physical/lightning spell to practice at some stage.
