LoN Whirlwind idea

1 post in this topic

Hey everyone,

 

Seeing how most of LoN builds focus on Hack and Thorns damage, I was thinking about something like this:

http://www.d3planner.com/240277617

Mantle of Channeling and Aquila should provide damage reduction, alongside APD combined with Wyrdward in cube. That all plus LoN's 52% DR.

As for damage, it has potential for total of 85% Lightning damage (Andariel, Thundergods, amulet and bracers), and since it's dual wield, it can get in the 550+% cdmg.

Most of damage would come from Fulminator passive, which would behave similarly to monk gen build, zapping madly in high density, and Schaefer's is there just to add a bit more juice.

Now all this is under assumption that item passive (fulminator and schaefers) actualy gets boosted by LoN and elemental damage increase, in which I am not sure.

But it looks tempting (to me, at least).

I will give it a go once I get all gear, but I was interested in hearing what you might have to say?

      I just can't find the answer.  Why are elemental shamans who  take ascendance as their final talent not supposed to use earth shock during ascendance?  earth shock does 920% spell power.  lava burst does 275%.  If you overload with lava burst you do an additional 206% totaling 481% spell power.  if you have 25% crit during ascendance lava burst is now 343% spell power and the overload is 257% equaling a total of 600% spell power.  you are missing out on a instant cast spell for 320%  additional spell power worth of damage; and quite often times twice during ascendance.  that's 640% spell power which is more than a lava burst cast during ascendance with 25% crit.
      I currently have 18% crit chance and during ascendance I'm critting lava burst at 434k (not extremely well geared I know, but the ratio is still present).  earth shock at 100 maelstrom non crit is 400k.  If you don't crit with earth shock you lose very little damage.  However, if you crit  with earth shock you do easily over 1million damage (several lava burst crits worth)  I really don't see a down side to using earth shock during ascendance other than 2-4 seconds off of fire elemental due to elementalist in your artifact tree.
      By all means show me that I'm being silly. Please.  Thanks all

      Has anyone else been doing more damage with aftershock than with ancestral swiftness (lvl 60 tier talents)?  the big thing I've been noticing is how many more earth shocks I'm getting off.  Other things are that I don't ever have to worry about how i'm going to set up my maelstrom for full length flame shocks and icefury/frost shock casts. Also, lower damage decrease while moving due to more maelstrom. I'm 865 and I'm doing 20-28k more dmg with aftershock.  Your thoughts

      Hello all,
      I don't know where else to go for help.  I've been struggling with enhance since the changes in 7.1.5.  Originally I thought it was a gear issue because I was performing okay on some fights in Heroic NH, but as I've gotten more gear over the past week, my numbers haven't gone up.  Here are the logs from my raid tonight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/N8P9vaGYHCFbmtDA#type=damage-done&boss=-2&difficulty=0
      I had been using Windsong and Overcharge last week, but noticed that it was just not working out, so when I swapped to Tempest instead, my numbers were about the same, so I've been using Windsong, Tempest, and FoA, like the  Wordup guide says.  Here's a link to my Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/Arthas/Donlionheart/advanced
      I've run a few sims, but I'm new to sims and I'm not sure I'm inputting the data right, so it's not worth mentioning the outcomes.  Basically, I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I tested out the Hot Hands talent on the dummy tonight after raid, and I did a Windsong test too, and for some reason, they were withing 10k of one another, with Hot Hands coming out on top.  Windsong seemed to give me a bigger opening burst, but I was higher more often and for longer with Hot Hands, though by the time I stopped after 4 minutes for each, they were so close it was barely worth mentioning.  Any advice is welcome, thanks.
      -Don
      P.S. I'm also using Chesder's (from MMO Champion) TellMeWhen strings, so maybe there's a problem with those.  If anyone has WeakAuras strings to recommend, or different TMW strings, let me know.  I used to use WeakAuras from another Shaman (a girl, I think the name was Corixa, but she doesn't make them anymore), and moved to TMW when a friend had some good strings.  Thank you.

      I play in Asia, since I got back to China, with the great firewall of China, its such a pain to still stay in US servers.
       
      please note that this is not a power build, but can perform pretty well.
       
      Anyway, lets start.
       
      The game is full of archon wizards and flashfire wizards, it will be fresh to see some new variations, after some testing, so I came up with this: the CC Blaster.
      A build can CC the entire screen and hit really hard while teleport around untouched with 5 times of your life shield on! Sound to good to be true ;)
      Read on.
       
      ----------------------
      Skills:
      Primary: Magic Missile: Conflagrate Secondary: Arcane Orb: Obliteration Button 1: Blizzard: Frozen Solid Button 2: Black Hole: Supermassive Button 3: Teleport: Calamity Button 4: Slow Time: Point of Return  
       
      Passive: 
      Galvanizing Ward;  Arcane Dynamo;  Evocation;  Unstable Anomaly;  
       
      (Teleport: Reversal is also an awesome rune, but it is really bad for travel and easily messed up when in dire situation making panic error happens a lot, if you perform well, Reversal can makes you pop out from nowhere and gone for the mobs with infinite teleports 1 second CD, seeing mobs mindless chase you back and forth, especially with Slow time to Slow/stun and making enemy missile slow motion, managing the battle field )
       
      You hit pretty hard with Obliteration rune, can 2-shot anything in TX including Rift Guardians, most will die in one hit.
       
      --------------------------
      Tal Rasha 6 set proc with the following skills:
       
      {Fire} Magic Missile: Conflagrate {Arcane} Arcane Orb: Obliteration {Cold} Blizzard: Frozen Solid {Lightning}: Black Hole: Supermassive {Option Arcane}: Teleport: Calamity  
       
      ------------------------
      Gears:
      [Tal Rasha 5 sets] with [Royal Ring] for full set bonus [Delsere 3 sets] with [Royal Ring] for up to 4 set Bonus [Bastion will Ring set] for signature spell & spenders alteration damage increase. [Unstable Scepter Wand] for Arcane Orb double trigger. [Triumvirate Source] for 600% Arcane Orb damage increase. [Ashnagarr's Blood Bracer] for 520% life of shield increase  
       
      (Note: tal belt & tal amulet must be taken, as it is a un-conflicting slot; others are by choices as long as the two sets bonus goal is achieved, tal armor also need to be taken for the IAS roll)
       
      ---------------
      In Cube:
      Mirrorball (3 conflagrate missile) The Shame of Delsere (AP Rege & Faster Speed of Magic Missile) Ring of Royal Grandeur (make wearing two sets possible)  
       
      (you may use the aether walker teleport no cd in weapon slot. but with so many spell u need to cast and rotate, its pointless to have a no-cd teleport in most situations.
      also, since you cast so many magic missiles so might as well increase its damage potential.
       
      in-geom is not needed, since spawn cc will have diminishing returns, and you can't use teleport too often with spells need to rotating.
       
      The Furnace in the other hand is a good choice if you need more elites damage.)
       
      --------------
      Gem:
      Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard (200% life shield) Simplicity's Strength (increase signature damage and reliable heal) Gogok of Swiftness (for IAS & CDR)  
       
      ------------------------------
      Basic function layout as below:
       
      Offense (with Gogok Gem IAS)
      1. Arcane Orb: Obliteration  2. Magic Missile: Conflagrate /with Mirrorball & Simplicity Gem 3. Tal set meteors 4. Arcane Dynamo Passive & Triumvirate Souce Combo 5. Bastion Will Ring Set.  
       
      Defense
      1. Tal set 4 set bonus 2. Tal set 6 set bonus 3. Del set 4 set bonus 4. Galvanizing Ward with Blood Bracer 5. Molten Wildbeest Gem with Blood Bracer  
       
      Mobility
      1. Teleport with CDR & Gogok Gem  
       
      Life Rege
      1. LoH with fast IAS 2. Life Rege with not taking damage (Molten Wildebeest Gem) 3. Magic Missle with Simplicity Gem  
       
      CC
      1. Freeze CC with {Blizzard: Frozen Solid} 2. Disable CC with {Blackhole: Supermassive} 3. Stun CC with {teleport: Calamity} 4. Slow CC with {Slow Time} 5. Stun CC with {Slow Time: Point of No Return}  
       
      With all five CC you can make the whole screen disabled!
      ------------------------
       
      Build favors Cooldown reduction & Attack Speed
       
      IAS makes your AP Rege super fast, and making magic Missile a viable AOE skill, and you can move out your location faster.
       
      CDR makes your an acceptable teleport cooldown and can span blackhole to gather for Arcane Orb Obliteration kill.
      Obliteration also is the fastest travel rune.
       
      That concludes the guide, I'm on low paragon level and can not test beyond TX Rift. If anyone interested, can test it out on high GRs for end game performance.
      So far it is a fun build to play.
       
      Just keep in mind that you are a ranged Blaster build, need CC to survive. You will be crashed if you go into Melee range. So be careful with your teleport as it still has close to 4 secs CD with CDR. 
      If you need to teleport on top of mobs to disable mob skill, followed by blizzard freeze is recommanded.
       
      Any feedback is welcome.
