3.3 OBEY THE ORB (Orb of Storms - based build, SSF)




This is a little guide-ish thing for my current SSF build around Orb of Storms. I experiment alot with unusual builds, try to use skills not as intended, or make some very specific non-mainstream builds.

Since orb of Storm got added to the game, i know i was going to make a build with Orb of Storm as the Core-skill. And because my english sucks anyway, first a little video, than more words:

Why should i obey the Orb?
Becasue its fun, it plays very smooth, and you will be they eye-catcher of every map-party!


All this flashy zap-zap, how does it work?
Its quite simple:
In 3.3.0 Orb of Storm got a major damage Buff (100%more damage than previous, 125% more damage effektiveness than previous). Also, it now scales with castspeed. In the same patch, almighty Cris and his Team reduced the base cast time of Tempest Shield from 0,5 seconds to 0,25 seconds and removed the cooldown.

So now we have an meaty Orb of Storm and a Tempest Shield on Speed! All i needed to do was trowing them into a mixer, and some vodoo.


What class should i choose to obey?
Honestly? Every class you whant. I have choosen Trickster, because he gets alot of castspeed, alot of random extradamage, and i generaly like evasion/dodge based builds.
But you can do this build with any other class, but usualy, a caster-based exile like Witch, Shadow or Templar should go best. Castspeed is very important for this to work smootly, and that the Strength classes do not get alot of that.
But hey, maybe a the Orb also works with brute force?


How to dress up?
I highly recommend a shield tho!
Anything else is yours to decide. I play SSF(Solo Self Found), so i do not have that mutch choices, but here is my gear anyway:


Iam quite proud of the Amulet!

Try to stack cast speed and survivability, becasue more castspeed always means smoother gameplay. You will teleport around alot, and have to press more than one button, casting different spells: Lightning warp --> Place Orb of Storms --> "channeling" Tempest shield --> occationaly trow in your vaal skill --> repeat that all alot!
So castspeed is mendatory.

Here are my flasks, because someone was interested in. They are quite standart and boring:



Passive tree PLOX!!!
There it is: https://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/3.4.1/AAAABAYCAAQHBLMFtQj0CSAPqxBYEQ8RLREvFr8c3CLqIvQj9iaVLJwtfTBxMHwyATLRNj031DpCOlg7DTwFPs9FR0WdSU9LeEyzTZJQQlFHUzVTUlVLVYVVxlq5XkVfKmHiYetirGpDbAtsjG0ZbWxw1HYRelN8g36vgLOCm4PbhTKLDow2jRmNfY2_jxqRR5LzkyeU8Zctl5WX9Jrgnaqf36IApcuu_7IZtDi1hbyqvOq95sBmwbTPetAf1CPVptlf3YzdqN_z4BLlGed06NbrY-vk6-7tP-9Q73zv6_Af-Jf5pPrr-_U=

Bandits i decided to help the Bridgerat getting fat and famous, becasue castspeed, movementspeed and dodge are the mainstats to get the chars fluid gameplay.

For Pantheons iam using:
Major: Soul of Solaris
Minor: Soul of Ryslatha



When is it time to start to obey?
You fight with youre bare fists until lvl 4, than equip Orb of Storm, and continue to cast it until you reach the Maps!

.
.
.
Honestly, i played with Spark and Orb of Storms until i killed the Eight-Legged spider at Act 2. Than i had most of the supportgems to use, and started to obey to the Orb via Tempest Shield.
But be aware, it used two elreons Rings, until i had normal Labyrintht. Tempest shield is quite mana intensive at the start.


Can i obey in HC?
I think, yes, to an extend.
I only died once yet (forgot an anti bleed flask, panict, dead), and iam now lvl 83, so this is not that squishy.
But i do not have mutch expirience in HC, so iam the wrong to ask, i only can make assumptions.

Update: Died 4 times now, 1 times corrupting blood and lack of anti bleed, 2 times aztiri(both times reflect, you can obey the orb,but you cant controle it!") and one times in a random t4 map, oneshootet by an architect (??????)


Any Questions regarding the build? Anything i should add?

FAQ: Becaue the question comes up every single time: No, Lightning Tendrils do not work properly with orb of strom. Channeld skill only trigger Orb of Storm aproximitly avery 0.5 seconds, REGARDLESS of any castspeed. So even a spark with 10% faster casting triggers it better.

THE ORB

OBEY

THE MASTER

Spoiler
I've worked on something similiar before seeing the changes to Orb of Storms, because just like you, I'm here for the memes. ;) Check my version based on the Elementalist ascendancy. If you want to check this for yourself, take a look here: https://pastebin.com/qxLjsLbP

Biggest + side to this approach is that you get lots of free penetration, area of effect and access to the best way of spreading shock to enemies.

I choose The Bridge Rat. Movementspeed, castspeed and dodge, all things this build highly benefits off.

Elementalist was a choice too, but i choose shadow trickster, sacrificing some offensive potential, to have a better mana-substainability, and extra dodge/castspeed. I tried to go crit, but it was dealing like 60% less damage, now iam grinding regrets xD

I dont use path of building, so i need a standart poe-tree link to watch your tree.


Btw, lvl 89 now, still only one death to corrupting blood and stupidity.

Cant find that last trial tho, :CCCCC
Got three twice enchantet, and the last pale council profecy, but still cannot acces the damn lab...

Ah yes, that pleasant moment of finding the last trial in SSF.. after some hard grinding, I found it almost exactly 1 week after starting the league with my SR Trickster. :)

Was thinking about Assassin's Mark for the mana sustain while grinding maps. It should work well with crits.

And I'd really recommend trying and downloading Path of Building. It makes editing and sharing builds just that much easier, with calculations on what's best the easiest. Me and my friend use that and nothing else. :)

Iam a bit retro, when it comes to creating builds. I love to have a bit of a suprise left to see if my build is working out or not :)

Still no trial.........

The boot enchantment i have on my boots is basicaly enought to substain the manacosts. Assasins mark wont work against bosses, how you handle your mana there?
