Why Avatar of the Chase? How do we get Onslaught? Because my char does not get Onslaught ^^
thanks :)
Look at the node before Avatar of the Chase.

Rapid Assault:
-50% increased onslaught effect
-Onslaught

So yes, your char has 100% onslaught uptime. You don't get a buff icon for it, but it's there nonetheless.

If you'd like to see proof, equip a silver flask, use it, and notice that your attack, cast, and move speed do not go up by 20%, because you already have it.

Good points - the conductivity 4L was a temporary setup; I'm now playing with vigilant strike which seems a bit awkward and the uptime on fortify does not seem to be permanent. Currently running it as a 4L with ancestral call, increased duration, faster attacks. Experimenting with flasks too.

Do you guys actually use vigilant strike, enduring cry, and sigil of power on cooldown in ultimatums, while spamming BFBB and managing to stay inside the sigil? That is an incredibly intense way of playing - there has to be a better way as the build has more than enough DPS and just needs a little boost to survive in t16 passively without all of this work. I'd gladly spend 10-20ex on extra gear if it can achieve smoother gameplay.

Also are there any streamers who play this build? Curious to see what their ultimatums and boss fights look like.


I don't bother with staying in Sigil as I find it more comfortable to kite in circles and like you I find kiting within the Sigil way too difficult.

After trying out Conductivity/Void Sphere/Purifying Flame spell trigger on one of my scepters, I highly highly recommend it.

Auto-casting conductivity is either one less skill in your rotation or alternately frees up a curse-on-hit ring for a good mana regen ring (unless you're rich enough to get a good ring with both).

Void Sphere is amazing crowd control in ultimatums, it groups up all the enemies chasing you and allows you to hit them with a huge BFBB volley.

Purifying Flame gives you some regen through consecrated ground and Divergent quality also makes enemies take more damage.

The 8 second cooldown isn't really an issue, I get good enough uptime for all three skills.
@scrambled777 This is my char and what im using right now;
IGN: UMRaider
My actual Gear





Like you see i use Shield Charge + Faster Attacks Support + Fortify Support

And yes i only use one aura wrath and just use the vall grace and vaal righteouse fire the last one because i dont have enought currency to buy anomalous clarity because... i consider this build the best setup i've seen so if u can aford all of this guy has raiderWicked then you will be fine i think and verry smooth, what i have seen his mana flask is verry effective.

Second upgrade I've done to my build and going for Clarity setup now.



I can do all Ultimatum fights without dying in T16.

Fortify + Sigil + Arcane Cloak + MoM are very powerful survivability mechanics.

I can also tank some Sirus "die" beams. Also, I've been using this build to farm Harvest Uber Lab. So far so good.
anyone got passive tree progression for 90~100 for wrath with cluster?

Thank you very much :) It is true that i did not see the buff icon and was very confused ;)
Just switched to bfbb in my small private HC league and accumulated decent starter gear for this build. So far it feels very strong compared to the vortex ll build. Thank for you for the strong build chemist. After reading through a few pages on here you really start to wonder if people actually read through the guide with some questions they ask. Also the discord is overly helpful which is amazing.

I'm barely at 3.6k life and 6k mana at around lvl 72. Undecided if I should run basalt flask over jade/quartz but jade and quartz has been working very well so far in hc.

Jade and Quartz give you better value, basalt is nice if you know you're going to be dealing with large physical hits or degens. Thank you for the kind words :)

Of course you deserve it your guide and discord are one of the best I've encountered, very thorough and you explain everything in great detail. Yea with ultimatums having a lot of phys damage it sways my opinion a little, it can be very daunting to have all those giant apes coming at you lmao.
