If you don't have a 6 Link chest, use this amazing item! It is the equivalent of a 5.5 link.[/b]

Mechanics


Spoiler
We damage in two ways:

1. Damage from Scorching ray totems which stack, but the maximum buff on the enemy is always 8. Which means the enemy has -24% fire resistance from debuffs caused by scorching ray. Scorching ray has 8 stages, so the longer in place the totem stays while casting, the more damage it causes.

2. Damage from Righteous Fire, this one is obvious. It is excellent for clearing, you just walk through enemy packs.

3. Elemental Equilibrium, Orb of Storms and Elemental Overload: Orb of storms is vital because it does 2 things:
- It places The Elemenetal Equilibrium debuff on the enemy making them loss fire resistance
- Triggers Elemental Overload when it crits for 40% more damage
4. Why not pick Ancestral Bond? If we do, we will do less damage. Because we won't be triggering Elemenetal equiblirum as our self cast skills will do no damage.


UPDATED Leveling guide

Level 1-54 Tree
Spoiler



Spoiler
1. Use Lightning tendrils, orb of storms, fire storms until you can use reach lvl 28-30 and use flameblast totems. Or you can go Arc totems, ancestral bond and then unspec out of it once you get your first ascendancy.

2. On bosses use a self cast flammability curse. You can link this with arcane surge if you want.

3. Link Orb of Storms with increased critical strikes. If you have a free 4l you can add curse on hit and flammability to this.

4. At level 33+ after getting your first acendancy, link multi totems and scorching ray + spell totems. Dont forget to get Elemental Equilibrium.

5. Make sure you DONT have added fire damage to spells as that will do overall less damage because it willl mess up the Elemental equilbrium from Orb of storms.

6. Level 60-75 Use scorching ray totems or use Balefire till you can get a 6l. Or even a 5 link chest.

7. Level 75+ If you can get a decent regen up, use righteous fire for maximum damage!

Solid, ill give it a try in March. What cost you estimate for your current gear? That chest must’ve been expensive for sure.

The chest was from AbyssHC, I would rather use ligtning coil tho for more mitigation if I had one.

Use Lightning coil if you can afford a 6l or 5l, with lightning coil and watcher's eye this build takes 60% of physical as lightning + 26% phys reduction from endurance charges and oak. Has over 1.1k regeneration with full endurance charges.


How do you get 60% phys as lightning damage when coil is 30% and the watcher's eye max roll is like 10% just curious? I could see if you somehow got a god tier roll of 10% from purity of lightning and 10% from purity of elements but that is still 50%.

How do you get 60% phys as lightning damage


he probably meant as ele dmg, 30% coil 20% taste 10% eye
I don't really feel very tanky. Maybe I am missing something but I feel like I fall over when a mob breathes on me.

That is my current setup.
I saw your video a few days ago and slap everything together in standard where I already have a six link Lightning Coil. Having so many slots taken up by unique items, not to mention the Delirium gloves will limit the stats from that slot also, the -60 lightning resist from Lightning Coil makes capping your resist very difficult.

I only drop totems against very large packs or against high health monsters and bosses. I mostly charge from pack to pack dropping OoS regularly to proc EE and EO. Is this what you do also?

Doing Uber lab is super easy, I just turn off RF when going thru traps. It's almost impossible to die to traps.

It's a strong build, but takes a little while to feel comfortable playing it. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback, you can grab resis nodes from tree or jewels to capp lightning resists. Delirum gloves are optional, if you like take less life nodes as the build already has a lot of life.

As you can see a lot of the uniques are replaceable like helmet and belts. You can get replace them with better rares with resists on them.

Can you explain more in leveling section like what to link with firestorm, or flame blast totem ? It will really helps for people like me, who are new and never played templar.

Also if possible, maybe good unique to use on leveling ?
