[3.1] Storm to the Limit - Lightning Strike | All content viable | Videos

doVGrVm

This Build is inspired by [3.1] ELE LIGHTNING STRIKE - ALL T16s, Shaper, Uber Atziri, HOGM, Chayula, Elder. Ty for the Idea :)

This build also takes a lot of Abyss Jewels, so keep in mind that it is build for Abyss league. if the Abyss mechanic dont come into the core league i will try to rebuild this so its playable in all coming leagues ;)



Very Important:
To maximize your Lightning Strike Experience you have to do this little trick, wich allows you to always attack in place:
Go to your Input Settings and search for "Attack in Place". Now take one of your numpad numbers for it. After that you need every time you log in on your char this:
hold down your number number you choosed and deactivate the numpad. Now you have always "Attack in Place" Enabled. ;)

IdF9kbU

We pick first the Slayer overleech and his path. After that we pick the raider passive, wich gives us ez frenzy charge generation against bosses and always onslaught at max frenzys.

Bandits
We pick Alira for mana reg, crit multi and All res

Gear

Overview

Detailed & Gem Links

We play with Claws for the nice extra life gain on hit and mana (depends on the claw). i bought this 300 pdps claw for ~ 4ex. A Phys dps claw is better than a Elemental dps claw.

Gems: Hatred -> Wrath -> Enlighten Lvl 3 (better 4)

I also took a Watchers Eye with Lightning Penetraion and Crit Chance with Hatred.
Remember: When you dont take the Hatred mod, pick Herald of Thunder or Ice instead of Hatred



Our Shield is the Lycosidae for 100% Hit chance. in it our Shield charge setup with bloodmagic so we dont spend our mana. Faster attacks is not needed, we are fast enough.

Gems: Shield Charge -> Fortify -> Blood Magic


Our Helmet is the Lightpoacher with 2 Abyss Jewel sockets with our CWDT-Setup in it

Gems: CWDT (lvl 5) -> Immortal Call (lvl 7)


Our Gloves are the Tombfist with 2 Abyss Jewel Sockets with our huge Attack Speed Boost

Gems: Blood Rage -> Ancestral Protector


Our Chest is the Inpulsa because it gives us a good dmg boost, good life and the Explosion are nice for mapping

Gems: Lightning Strike -> Multistrike -> Dmg on Full Life -> Elemental Dmg with Attacks -> Increased Critical Strikes -> Lightning Penetration


We take the Kaoms Roots for a huge life boost and stun and freeze immunity



Our Belt is the Darkness Enthroned and put in there our best Abyss Jewels



We take 2x The Taming, wich ggives us at best 80% all res. a huge dmg boost because we shock, freeze and ignite. that means we get additional 60& elemental dmg per ring + the 30% from the ring, this means we get 90% elemental dmg per ring.

Our Amulet would be best with lightning dmg to attacks, elemental dmg, crit multi, crit chance and life. i take this because i crafted it myself and its pretty nice. You can also take a Bisco's for Mapping



Or flasks are: 1 panic life flask. The Wise oak (because we have ez balanced res we get all the bonus in offence and defense). The Atziris Promise. A Diamond Flask and the last one is up to you ;)



We take 8 Abyss Jewels (we want some with the higest lightning dmg and life as possible) and some Crit Multi jewels. Try to get at least one with str and one with all res on it. I also took a Watchers Eye with Lightning Penetraion and Crit Chance with Hatred. Remember: When you dont take the Hatred mod, pick Herald of Thunder or Ice instead of Hatred





KMfGpOZ
Skilltree at lvl 93

we go straight to the claw leech notes and than we pick crit % life. after that we take the slayer (duellist) path and at least the lightning dmg notes

Path of building Link

if you got enough all res and attribute from gear and jewels, you can go switch to this tree and gain additional 400k dps (depends on your gear ofc)

The Pantheon

The pantheon is full up to you. i Prefer the "Soul of Solaris" and "Soul of Abberath"




D0nEjEt
Enchantment

We have two good enchantments for our Helmet:
3 addtionial Lightning Strike Projectile is great in wide areas like dunes etc
Lightning Strike Pierces 3 Additional Targets is great for close linear maps like channel etc and for more than one boss like trio
The best Boots Enchantment is:
Add # - # Lightning Dmg if you haven't killed recently

Because we play without a curse you can try to hit Ele weakness or Temp Chains on hit at our gloves

Leveling Guide

These are good beginner claws wich help while lvling and in early mid-game. Keep in mind that you should pick up the "Lycosidae" as fast as possible and if you dont have it take a "Accuracy Support Gem" in your setup


And as always these are the most common lvling items:

And in the Abyss League take the Darkness Enthroned wich you can wear at lvl 1 and just with 2x 30 life jewels it helps a low in the lvling process:


In the Skilltree you should go straight to the Claw leech notes and pick up the jewel slots
Leech
d4gUFB8


After that fill up the rest of the notes around (life etc)
fill
twg2mwv


Now you should reach the Slayer Passive and the Duellist Tree Startpoint, wich means you go straight the line forward, pick up all what you prefer and finally change ur 3 int notes to 2 dex notes and close the gap
New Startpoint
Mq25wpL


[Abyss League] It also helps to buy some low Abyss jewels. Some jewels with "add #-20 to lightning dmg" is way enough for a supreme lvling expirience and they are very cheap with 1-5 chaos each

those abyss jewels are very expensive to get, with the price of one of those i can build a cost efective build to do all content lol.
It is good for an starter build ?

i dont think so you need at least like 35+ ex to make a build like that if not even more.

its a very good starter build, you can buy some cheap jewels for ~ 1-5 chaos each with 2x 20 lighting dmg and breeze through the acts like never before. i also tested a bit around in PoB and i would loose ~ 1/4 dmg without abyss gear. (atm im at ~4m shaper dps with abyss gear). but that should be still enough to clear all content without problems. and we dont know if abyss isnt coming into the core game or wich new strong uniques come in the next league ;)
