[3.6] Elementalist - Armageddon Brand - Ignite. Elder/Shaper Viable - Cheap starter

Indirectly related but I'd thought I'd mention I'm using a Jugg with AB to start fires and Cleave to clean up as my starter in 3.6. The defenses of the Jugg make it a great option for an easy playstyle. Also if you have any ES on your gear you can try linking the new ES Leech gem to the AB for a "more" damage boost which I have found pretty useful so far.

Nice guide for an underappreciated spell.
After turning off the BS in the PoB Configuration, (Such as "enemy is Taunted" (Where are you getting a taunt from?)) the build only has 90k Shaper dps, which is abysmally awful. The Configurations also show that the build has EE, despite it not being allocated on the tree at all.

What is going on with this build? I was going to try it, but after looking around and investigating the items and config in PoB, it seems to be pretty poor.

Hi there. The Taunt is there to simulate our effective shock. To help with this we have a modified flask in PoB since PoB Does not calculate our buffs we get form our improved golems and such.

Also EE comes from the ring Malachai's Artifice.

Heres some info of the flask:

* 60% from having 3 golems summoned
* 75% increased effect of buffs from golems (25% per golem)
* 10% increased damage taken that comes from the Cinderswallow Urn flask
* The calculation of Elementalist's Shock depending on how much Ailment Effectiveness you have in the build (added to the previous stat)

I put the shock on 'Taunted' condition so it's easy to check it's impact on the build, and Taunted doesn't modify any other stat so it's safe to use.

The PoB I gave you had 55% effectiveness so 20 * (1+ 0.55) = 31% shock, plus the 10% from the Cinderswallow Flask : 41%.

25% of the ailment effectiveness comes from the tree and 30% from a craft on the amulet. It's an insane craft for Elementalists btw, you can also craft it on the boots. Knowing each 10% of that stat is around 1.7% more Damage, you can get almost 6% more Damage on a single craft.

Hello and welcome to the Armageddon Brand Elementalist build with a focus on igniting enemies and watching them burn to death.

I used this as a starter in 3.5 and i cleared all the guardians, Shaper and red Elder with it.
Armageddon brand is recieving some nerfs in 3.6 but from what I can see it should still be perfectly fine as a starter/mapfarmer.


3.6 Setup with MoM instead of Phase acrobatics. https://pastebin.com/4Ti3pppB


Shaper Down :https://clips.twitch.tv/AdorableSpeedyFinchFunRun
Red Elder down
T16 Lich Down
Hydra Down
Phoenix Down
Chimera Down
Minotaur Down

Thanks to everyone who has contributed and wished me good luck. Also it makes me really happy when people come into my stream and tell me that they are having a great time with my build!


For questions or input either reply here or visit me when im streaming on https://twitch.tv/seabazz87


How to play with Armageddon Brand
Spoiler

The general idea of the build is to run/dash around and toss out your brand on enemies or close to them. The brand then summons meteors to rain down on them. The enemies get ignited and then the fire spreads. If an enemy who's branded dies, the brand should automatically jump to a nearby enemy and repeat. If you have some brands laying on the ground a screen behind you, just use Brand recall and all the active brands will be teleported to your position, now with increased cooldown recovery speed and increased attachment range.

Hey,

Do you think you could add the jewels in the list at items and stuff? I`ve seen some on the pob link, but its much easier to follow if its in the post item list.
-Edit- You also don`t have belt listed.

Thanks

Hi there, I tried adding some more to the guide. but for some reason it ended up deleting the other half. I think it has reached some kind of cap:(

You will have to go on the PoB Information.

As for belts I always use a Stygian belt.

1. Alteration/Augmentation untill you get a high life / Res.
2. Regal orb for a second ress or back to stage 1.
3.Craft a third res.

Have a nice day!
