[3.6] Behold the Orb - Orb of Storms 6L, All Content Viable!

Hey, I'm looking for a orb of storm build for the race which is actually nice to farm maps as well as uber elder, I've tried a bit the reddit's video build but got only to level 52, and not a huge fan of tempest shield. Would you advise trickster ?

Depends on your playstyle, I guess. Currently I'm playing this as a Trickster, and feels amazing.

If you don't use Tempest Shield, you're not using Orb of Storms as your main skill, it's quite simple. You can use it as a 5L/6L in addition to a main skill, but overall it might not be more dps.

Thanks for your answer, I may go for another build then, but I like the idea of Orb of storm being a main skill, nice job mate :)
Viable for starting Flashback? And how do you lvl it?

Either that, or some unique like the ones that have Abyssal Jewels, or a -res aura helm... Plenty of options.

Simply because it has the fastest cast speed (for a non-channeling skill, those don't trigger each cast). More casts per second = more DPS for Orb of Storms.

"You clear with Chain, swap to Hypothermia for bosses (Guardians, anyhow), or Ele Focus if you have a white socket. You'll still Ignite with Storm Brand so it's fine."

You mean chill and not ignite right?
