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



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, because it was made in Abyss league. But i also added a non-abyss jewel version wich is a bit weaker but can still roll over all content ;)



Very Important:
To maximize your Lightning Strike Experience you have to do enable "Attack in Place" for Lightning Strike

Gear

Abyss Jewel Version

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 (Use an Vaal Lightning Strike for the extra Vaal Skill Effect if you get one ;))

Gems: (Vaal)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.



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

Gems: Blood Rage -> Enhance -> Ancestral Protector


Our Helmet is the Rat's Nest with our CWDT-Setup in it (best option to get the right colours is with Vorici Jewelcrafting or the save 3 Red Sockets with Cromatics)

Gems: CWDT (lvl 5) -> Immortal Call (lvl 7) -> Ice Golem (lvl 7) -> Increased Duration (lvl 20)


Our Gloves are the Maligaro's Virtuosity with our huge Attack Speed Boost gems (try to get some with elemental weakness on hit corruption)

Gems: Shield Charge -> Faster Attacks -> Fortify -> Blood Magic


Our Chest is the Inpulsa because it gives us a good dmg boost, good life and the Explosion are nice for mapping (Use an Vaal Lightning Strike for the extra Vaal Skill Effect if you get one ;))

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



Our Belt is a Rare Belt with Life, Resistance and Elemental Damage. A Stygian Vise with a Abyss Jewel (flat lightning damage + life/ele damage/crit multi/all res [wich you prefer]). Or BiS would be a "Darkness Enthroned" with 2x Abyss Jewel (flat lightning dmg + life + All res)



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.

We take 7 (6 if you have a Watcher's Eye) Crit Multi Jewels (if you can take some with %max life/all res). 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








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"





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:

Take the Darkness Enthroned asap wich you can wear at lvl 1 and just with 2x 30 life jewels it helps a lot in the lvling process:


The Berek's Pass rings are a blast while leveling with every elemental build. you should realy try them :) you can also upgrade them into the taming rings with the right other rings


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


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


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


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 ;)
