[3.13] Dejuvenate's Flameslinger Elementalist. Best League starter and unethical clear speed

"
That really looks sick. I'll keep an eye on this build, most likely will be my league starter :D

*Btw, you're talking a lot about Chieftain and and Trickster without really talking about the benefits you think Elementalist has compared to those two.



Thanks for reminding me. I will update the first post.

Main strength for elementalist is of course golem and exposure.

Since we are technically spell caster with low dex, our accuracy is atrocious. Having 4 golems (270% buff effect and ice golem giving accuracy) lets us cap accuracy much easier.

If we decide to go all out in stacking golems (primordial chains, anima stone, 2x prim harmony), we will end up with 9 golems. The buffs with 9 golems are ridiculous, giving us tons of regen, inc dmg, phys reduc, accuracy.

We can easily sustain RF and VRF if we decide to stack golems, bringing good QOL. I have tried both trickster and chieftain, it would be hard to sustain RF without too much change to your build and gear. Elementalist has no such issues.

Exposure would be big. With combustion, we are looking at -69% fire resist to enemies.

Also shock gives us essentially 15% more damage.

All in all, just the exposure and shock debuff already bring us to the dps lvl of chieftain and trickster; the golem buffs bring us numerous QOL and phys reduction.

I will update POB later today after work.

Why kinetic blast over frenzy?
Kinetic blast has explosions.

Frenzy with gmp hits 5 mobs

Kb with gmp hits 5 mobs and explodes, hitting everything around them. With pierce and enough aoe, kb + gmp + pierce will hit everything in your screen and beyond, resulting in unethical clear

Look at the video to see how stupid it is.


Of course if you are running against conquerors/single target mobs, you can swap to frenzy for ez 12% more dmg.

This is very exciting. What's your take on Kinetic Bolt instead of Blast?

The other alternative, if you for some reason dont wanna use kinetic blast, is power siphon due to its innate 10 additional projectile. Frenzy for giving 3 frenzy charges aka 12% more dmg. I cant see kinetic bolt performing better than them.

You of course can swap to frenzy for tougher bosses like guardian and sirus.

Another nice thing is that Efficacy got moved from LVL31 to LVL8, should make leveling even better than it already is.

I have a fully fleshed out POB for my league starter version of flame slinger Elementalist that is focused on survivability quite a bit and doesn't use clusters, but I don't wanna "hijack" the thread and it doesn't have millions of DPS so I doubt most SC players would be interested.

Please do share it if you dont mind. I will of course credit you for it and put the POB in the first post if its ok with you.

Thanks

I am thinking to sustain RF at 2k life with 4 golems begining.
And get aegis at 3rd lab for defense.

My KB 4th link would be unbound ailments instead of combustion to scale shock effect. As I think combustion need fire damage to trigger, then it will ruin my ee. So my idea is having some lightning damage from the wand or ring to apply shock and ee in one hit.

For combustion, i guess i will use
wave of conviction - curse on hit - flammability - combustion

My ascendancy point will be
4 for golem, 2 for shock and 2 for aegis

Please comment if my concept is wrong, didnt play this before, thank you.
