This highly mobile, autoaiming spec is designed for Greater Rift solo progression, but we also have a speed farming variation that you can access using the link below.

2.2.1.

Angelic Crucible Sanctification

Season 27 comes with the theme of Angelic Crucibles — consumable items that empower Legendary items with perfected Ancient-level stats, as well as infuse them with one of three unique, powerful, class-specific abilities at random.

Unfortunately, the LoD Bombardment build does not have a great way of utilizing the three Sanctification powers. Thus, you should simply use Angelic Crucibles on an item that crosses over most (if not all) variants of a build, and is also an item that is relatively harder to perfect than other slots (since sanctifying an item maximizes its stats). The Sanctification power outcome does not matter. In the case of this build, good candidates for Sanctification are your shoulders (Burden of the Invoker Burden of the Invoker) and your gloves (Stone Gauntlets Stone Gauntlets), which are present across all variants of this build.

You can read more on Angelic Crucibles and the sanctification process in our dedicated Angelic Crucible Mechanics guide.

Follower and Potion

We recommend the Enchantress for GR solo progression, speed GR and T16 farming. Check out our Follower guide for advice on their skills and gearing. For your legendary potion, we recommend Bottomless Potion of Kulle-Aid Bottomless Potion of Kulle-Aid.
