Kill bosses before immune phases :)

Spoiler
Life - Elemental Resistances - spell damage


How to make the weapon
Spoiler
You buy a Void Sceptre Ilv 84+ SHAPER base, Then buy a 3 socket resonator and These fossils - Bloodstained - Scorched - Aetheric. Use on the weapon base and hope you have a open Prefix for the Spell damage and non chaos as extra chaos enchant. This cost about 2.5ex to craft each weapon. They well Very high with really good flip rate.


How to Off Color Chest
Spoiler
This video is still relevant and can help explain how to do this even past 3 sockets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycrneiNryNw, Do this before you chest is socketed. Cost about 100c in jewelers to 5 off color with this method. (can even go for the 6 socket but very expensive for little benefit) If you do not have the patterns they are found in Delve depths or find someone in trade with them. I can also help people out if im free. Lastly you could also use Vorci lv 3 and pray the RNG you land white socket over the green, then it's GG.


How to make the helm
Spoiler
You will want a Elder base with the 40% increased damage with Molten Shell and use a ESSENCE OF HORROR for the 30% MORE damage with socketed spell as this is HUGE then pray you RNG a 5th or even 6th Sudo link (example Conc effect) This is all RNG on how well your helm rolls. about 40c per try.


Gem links
Spoiler
6-Link Setup:
5link is more then enough as this chest is hard to off color
Last link Would be Increased Duration (red) or you can use Portal Gem here none Linked



4-Link Setups:
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO GEM LEVELS For CWDT

This build runs 2links in each 4 link item They are as Followed
-

Check "current gear" how they look"



3-Link Setups:

Weapon 1 -


Weapon 2 -



Ascendancy:

Spoiler

Skill Trees:/POB's -


Tips and tricks:


1. You must Cast when channel till you get your first vaal stack then pop your flask and go go go :)
2. Pay attention to your surroundings

It's a rough start and a weird playstyle to get used too but man o man, is it fun!
Why did you choose pathfinder if it is so far away from the ignite nodes? Is it fine to lose them and instead take master alchemist? Ive got a similar concept on one of my characters atm, running around with abberath hooves.

Pathfinder because flask and movement speed is key, also no you need the ignite nodes as they are how we do damage. Think of it as a hurt your self, let out rage type of build.
oh man looks like you'd crazy gain from elder helm with horror + immolate. what would you replace immolate gem with if you obtained such a helm?
It is a rly good guide but it is viable as Elemantalist or only Pathfinder?

You want elder helm as shaper adds attack modifier's, but if you land immolate you use conc. And vice versa.

It could work as elementalist, but pathfinder I'd deff the stronger option. Also thanks for the complements on the guide.
How does this do with end game bossing (Uber elder/Shaper)?
