[3.5] Balls On Fire Witch <> Waves of Destruction <> Brand New Video Guide 3.4


Hello guys,
I want to show you the build I played in 3.3 in the flashback event. A Magma Orb Elementalist for fast clear speed which also melts most bosses in seconds. The build is pretty tanky and has also very good sustain. The defence is based on a evasion, dodge and block and uses the great synergies with Mind Over Matter to push the effective health pool to +7K and additionally enfeeble and blind mechanics are used to push the survivability to the next level.

Any thoughts on using Oni to level with, barring Her Embrace (or that just may be the deal breaker)
hey there, nice build. you might want to try to fit in some high lvl decoy totem or maybe some ice wall. it helps you to keep stronger oponents away wich gives you two great bonuses:
1. you are even safer because enemy is occupied and won't reach/hit you with single target attacks
2. the enemy is further away and you get more out of your last chains.

If you prefer to level with an attack skill Oni-Goroshi is a good option but for this build not really necessary. Magma Orb scales pretty good early on and I had no problems to level it SSF.

Thanks bro, oh yeah I checked the wither totem could really push dps a lot. I will take your advice and drop scorching ray and get a wither totem instead. The Frost Wall makes also sense in theory but I guess I am not sure how to fit that also in... thanks for you advice!

How viable will this build be as a starter build for Delve?
Is the gem swap 100% needed for bossing? I mean lower tier maps, and maps where you fight the boss in an open environment, not in a room?
What is the difference between Inquisitor and Elementalist?

It should be super viable... I used it as league starter in the flashback event in 3.3 and nothing changed. For me it was really easy because Magma Orb scales pretty good early on.

You can kill all bosses without swap but it will just take a little longer because without slower projectiles you need to go pretty far away to hit the enemy with some of the last chains (gloomfang mechanic). For lower tier maps that should not be a problem because the bosses will just melt.

Inquisitor is normally crit focussed and bit better for single target dps. ELementalist is normally better for clear speed and does not need to be crit focussed. In this case we use Elemental Overload... and invest nothing into crit.
