[3.2] Fully Corrupted All-Unique Dual Wield HOWA Molten Strike Build - 15.5M DPS, 9.1k ES, 44% Evade


The build in this guide uses two HOWA (Hand of Action and Wisdom) Imperial Claws and Molten Strike as the main skill. The guide is intended for experienced players as the build is gear dependent and requires many optimizations.

This build can destroy all endgame contents as of 3.2; Uber Elder and Elder Guardians, Shaper and T16 Guardians, Uber Atziri, Chayula, Hall of Grandmasters and all map bosses in the Atlas.

For a more practical build, refer to WaffleT's guide using Atziri's Mirror shield

HoWa dual weild might give you alot tooltip dps, but other than that, only the %int is what you gain. Dual-weilding HoWa does not give you the flat damage twice since they changed it to "hits with this weapon". Does not affect the PoB calculation anyways, so it's no big deal.
Getting balanced res for Wise Oak might be a pain in the ass if you have to corrupt everything, but let's assume that this is just a matter of time/currency.

Now to your calculation... assuming "chance to hit" means the probability of a ball hitting the boss and not the mere ground.
Your formula is (39,866.6)(11.68)(0.47) + (20)(764,180.0) = 218,851 + 15,283,600 = 15,502,451 aka projavgdmg*atkrate*assumedchanceaballhits + projamount*meelhitdmg ... why do you multiply the melee hit with the projectile amount?
Lets fix that:
projavgdmg*atkrate*projamount*chancetohit + meleehitAVGdmg*atkrate
Making this (39,866.6)(11.68)(20)(0.47) + (65,426.6)(11.68) = 4,377,033 + 764,180 = 5,141,213

Now this looks alot more like the actual damage you do in the videos shown - still impressive and more than enought to clear endgame.

It is still a rather nice build and if one has the currency to test the setup, it might be worth it.

PS: As people pointed out on reddit, it is rather weird, that all those "Look mom, I got 15mil deeps"-build-creators have their profile set to private.

edit: Ancestral Call hits two more targets, so wouldn't that make it 30 balls?
(39,866.6)(11.68)(30)(0.47) + (65,426.6)(11.68) = 6,565,550 + 764,180 = 7,329,730
