How come you don't take m/any casting speed passives? I thought they were important for boosting incinerate damage.

I'm not really at a place in the tree to take much casting speed. I do go past one node with 3-2-2, but that's actually about the worst casting speed nodes you can possibly find. I do have 18% from my weapon and a 20/20 gem, so it isn't as though I don't have a ton of it anyway. And of course anyone running dual wand will likely have more.

In general though, I don't really use many passives on damage - and of the damage nodes I can afford to take, 7% cast speed just isn't enticing enough for me.

Maybe I'm missing a good one that's close by?

Have you done any experimentation with faster projectiles?

PS: Thanks for a very fun, versatile build!

Yeah, before I had a 20q incinerate, I was doing faster projectiles/gmp/totem/incinerate/fc. It works quite well in outdoor areas, but a lot of indoor rooms make having more than the quality bonus a bit redundant.

seems like spell totems are about to get nerfed.. how much do you think this will nerf it by? I'm not sure how spell totems calculated the casting speed before the nerf and after the nerfs
yep gets nerfed -.-
flame totem is far superior now.. especially with low life + crit. I have 8k dps with lmp without my skill tree being optimized for it since I was initially building for storm call which isn't that great lol.
My tooltip damage has gone up since the patch - and notably so. Still trying to explain it - perhaps the ele damage passives helped that much???

Ah - the tooltip is confused. It's using my summoning speed as the totem's cast speed. Real dps is down by about 19-20%. All things told, this isn't a huge damage hit, and if I corrupt my incinerate totem successfully (+1 gem level) it'll be fairly close to where it was.

Also, it takes a lot less time to summon totems now, since only the totem takes the cast speed penalty.

Flame Totem is still underperforming for me, by a large margin.
