Shaped Helmet:


Body:
or


Shaped Boots:


Shaped Rings:


Shaped belt: Life, Spell damage during flask effect and the MUST have 33%
reduced flask charges gained 14% increased effect of flasks bench craft

Shaped wands: Has 1 Abyssal Socket??
Vaal Skills require 20% reduced Souls Per Use??
craftedCan have up to 3 Crafted Modifiers
crafted50% increased Spell Damage
craftedAdds 3 to 107 Lightning Damage to Spells
craftedGain 8% of Lightning Damage as Extra Chaos Damage
craftedGain 4% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos Damage

craftedCan have up to 3 Crafted Modifiers
crafted15% increased Global Critical Strike Chance
crafted38% increased Energy Shield
crafted+97 to maximum Life
crafted28% increased Damage during any Flask Effect
crafted22% increased Elemental Damage if you've dealt a Critical Strike Recently

Jewels:Either are the best for my build. For budget you only need 1 multi and %life and a resistance incase you're lacking to be able to clear all content per jewel.


League details (Read!!!)
Spoiler
Your main skill will be Arc (not vaal arc) to clear map trash easily (use Lavianga's Spirit) without the need of vaal storm call making the vaal variant boss specific which is what it really was intended for.
In addition, to have 3 stacks of storm call (Maximum of 4) you will need a triumvirate ring (new vaal ring) with these mods; Vaal skills deal 150% more damage, Vaal skills ignore enemy monster resistances, Vaal skills have reduced soul gain prevention and your vaal souls gain 1 additional soul. Any of those mods in combination will work.

Questions
Spoiler
Q: Can you league start with this?
A: Yes, even with 1 stack we are good in the current league and it's mechanic's.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Check out my cost section :)
Q: I am having troubles sustaining perma vaal storm calls in ultimatum, and I am wondering if I should get more chance to not consume charges, or more flask charges on crit
A: You will need the Atziri jewels for chance not to consume yes, both of them.
Q: Hello, I am looking forward to your pob when will I see it
A: Please check my POB section :)
Q:if i understood correctly, VSC usually hits every 0.25. with all the reduced and less reduction, that frequency shoul be every 0.25*0.18= 0.045sec, or 22.2 hits per seconds.
A:No we hit 26.25 and it cannot be modified below that sadly. The math is simple, DPSx26.25 from there you will then know how much dps you deal per stack. We have 15 stacks for vaal storm call.

DPSx26.25=stack
Stack=15
CPSxStack is your total possible dps
Q: How do we get more than 1 vaal soul in league?
A: Sacrificial harvest jewel and Chill of corruption jewel paired, triumvirate ring also (Refer to league details).


Crafting

Spoiler

Weapons: For our weapons we will be crafting with only bloodstained fossils and Hollow fossils. Once you apply your fossils to your wands or whatever weapon you have chosen you will then annul until you obtain just reduced vaal souls and abyssal socket. All that is needed from here is to multimod spell damage non chaos as extra chaos and lightning damage to spells and your weapons are now completed!

Example


Helmet: For our helmet you will use Hollow fossils and Prismatic fossils until you hit either Lightning damage to spells or Cold damage to spells. From there you will then annul until you hit just the Damage to spells and abyssal socket and multimod life and a resistance that you need.

Gloves: Bloodstained fossils will be used and per usual you will annul until you just have critical strike chance with vaal skills and then multimod with these mods, Increased damage during flask effect, increased Elemental Damage if you've dealt a Critical Strike Recently, increased Energy Shield/to maximum Life and increased Elemental Damage if you've dealt a Critical Strike Recently.

Boots: For our boots we will be using Hollow fossils and Shuddering fossils, annul until you only have the abyssal socket and t1 or t2 movement speed and multimod a resistance and anything else you may need.

Amulet: For our amulet you will need to Alteration and Augmentation spam until you get both spell damage and crit multi t1-t3 and then regal and pray on your annulment orb. After you will multimod Life, area damage and critical strike chance.


Example


Mirror Service
Spoiler


All fees are 60ex+ Mirror.

Nice build, do u have the POB?


Hello there! Thank you for asking about my pob. Once i am finished with my detailed section the pob will be released into my guide! I want to make sure everyone knows what they're getting into and to fill in any questions that will occur.
any way to pull this off in league / without legacy gear?
"

Yes. I am leveling as i have time and so far i am one stacking all bosses and mobs. I will have a leveling section coming out here within the week! Stay tuned!
WIth harvest nerfed the gear presented in the POB is hella unrealistic however im not saying that its not possible to play this build with similar gear or different setups, considering your either going to be focusing on more of a boss based vaal skill or a clear based. I have some stuff in std to do with vaal builds, will probably mess around with it and come up with something.

the few items i have related to vaal stuff:


This is standard though, just a heads up xD

Clearspeed looks kinda bad, so why not then just do a miner that can instaphase anything on a much lower budget?
It's hard to remember what you have forgotten

Vaal Fireball and Vaal spark are what i use for clear(3 gem swap). The budget of this build in league is not much as me and another are this exact build and the budget is under 10ex. Your point is kind of valid for the Vaal Storm Call clear.
To confirm, in ultimatum league, we can only ever have 1 stack of vaal storm call up? So both the clearspeed and single target will be a lot worse right?
