Gem Links

This is to sustain extra crit during boss fights or mapping and also to proc Mastermind of Discord.

Leveling

1) Good leveling items for early on: 2x Driftwood Wands, Tabula Rasa, Goldrim Leather Cap, Doedre's Tenure, and Wanderlust Boots.
2. At lvl 10, swap out 2x Driftwood wands for 2x Axiom Perpetuums. You can use these until Act 9 (or at least I did).
3. Early on, Magma Orb can be linked to Added Lightning Dmg and Increased Critical Strikes. This should be enough to carry you until you get support gem rewards from NPCs. (Such as Spell Echo from Oyun in Act 4.)
4. Pick up Herald of Ice in Act 2.
5. Your first golem from Act 4 should be Lightning Golem. (I picked fire tho cuz it was cooler looking).
6. Swap in main gem links accordingly when u get them. If you don't have a Tabula and are on a 5L, your 6th link should be Fire Pen.
7. Ascendancy Order -> Pendulum of Destruction -> Mastermind of Discord -> Liege of the Primordial -> Paragon of Calamity

Just got through act 6 and I'm loving this build! Only question I have is about pantheon choices, what do you recommend?
One of my group is trying this build any new comments etc . We just got a ring tonight with warlords mark on it . Still trying to find a 6 link chest that isnt a tabula lol .

EDIT what jewels man ?

Im curious, i love magma orb ..

What do you think about pledge? double crit dagger better?
I actually started with an SRS build, but fortune brough me a magma orb gem in the cave after movement speed boots on twilight strand, I've enjoyed the damage of this move a lot more. Going to switch to this endgame build, even if I am level 24. Or at least some kind of combo if possible. Love the video.
Hey man. I have some questions about the build. If you go the crit route, why not Inquisitor? And then , if you were to build this character in SSF, would you recommend going crit (it is going to be hard to get enough crit early on to make it efficient) or would you go non crit with ele overload and transition later on into crit? And then, if going non crit , would it be smarter to start with a simple firestorm setup with Herald of Thunder until i get enough crit on gears ? Thank you :)
the actual build for 3.2.0 ???
Why have attack speed on the daggers?
