2) Enemy is blinded
3) Sigil of Power Stages: 1
4) Doom on Hex: 51



Pro/Con
Spoiler

+ Fast clear
+ Good single target damage
+ Core Budget Unique
+ Do not have to stand still to deal damage
+ Layered Defenses (MOM / Bastion of Elements / Glancing Blow / Arcane Cloak)
+ Can do all content on a budget
+ Not a headhunter build

- Cannot face tank all content
- Bad map mods: Cannot Regen, Hexproof, Elemental Ailment Avoidance
- Does not scale well with higher investments (if you have over 100 exalt orbs, this build won't perform much better than with 10 exalts)
- Not a 100M DPS build
- Not a headhunter build
