If we're talking Phoenix, that's actually not hard compared to other guardians. Just use Spell Echo / Faster Casting, and stay out of the blast. Takes longer, but it's less risky than most of them.

Anything else, like Ignite Immune maps, you just play as usual (again, use Spell Echo if you care, I don't bother :D), and pretend it's not there. The only problem is it lowers the clear speed a bit because no prolif so sometimes packs take 1-2 more shots for stragglers.

Fine, fine, I'll make vids :D
sheesh

EDIT:
There you go!
T10 Malformation - 60% Fire Res
T15 Underground River - me playing badly and being lazy :D
T15 Dark Forest - wasn't as lazy, still without Shock.

New gearing test. So far feels better for clear, better leech for bosses. Using Enfeeble as 3rd curse atm, might try Temp Chains / Proj Weak later. Either way, the 3rd curse is far from a must.

So far Proj Weak seems to be the best for safety :D

At the higher gearing levels, it feels like Facebreaker is the less safe version for Reflect. Also, it's easier to aim with the Proj Speed from Winds of Change. Overall, both work, but for later on, it feels better. For Pure DPS, Facebreaker is of course better (~15% more on the Hit DPS, ~6% on the Ignite DPS on my gear).

Eye of Innocence / Mokou's Embrace and Faster Casting add a HUGE boost to clear speed, recommend those 100%. Vaal Haste is of course an option if you want to blaze through maps.

looking really good thanks for sharing.
Great build! Works perfectly in High Tier :)
Testing a non-AoF version with Pyre, EE and Mastermind of Discord. More than double the DPS for bosses, but clear speed suffers a bit.
EDIT: I should mention that without AoF, you can't reliably Ignite yourself for boss fights (used to rely on Orb of Storms to do it), meaning I'm mostly using the Tiki + rare ring and War Mark (6947+965 life, roughly 77% of the DPS).

Pros:
More Boss DPS
More Reflect Resistant
Less Curse Reliant
No more Detonate Dead/Porcupine Deaths

Cons:
Lower Clear Speed (no Prolif, Equilibrium)
