[2.6] Low life Kinetic Blast Ele Wander (Raider)

Intro & build description

Insanely fast clearing build due to Raider ascendancy and high movement and attack speed. Low life also allows us to use several auras that are boosted using Prism Guardian for more damage and defense, finding good balance between both. Build is pretty pricey but Legacy league has been going for a while now and item prices have dropped considerably, although this is not a budget build.

Build Pros

  • Fantastic clear speed and single target damage
  • High Leech
  • Can kill Guardians and Shaper
  • Very fun to play using satisfying skill

Build Cons

  • Expensive
  • Energy shield can be a bit low when compared with CI builds that are meta right now

Helmet

Crown of Eyes

Best helm for our build because it allows us to scale our attack damage through spell damage due to it’s unique affix.

Ideal enchantment for this helm would be additional barrage projectiles but that enchant is very expensive, you can also go for increased barrage attack speed.


Body Armour

Shavronne's Wrappings

Chest of choice for mostly any low life build. 5L can work but ideally we should be looking at 6-linked Shavs.


Gloves

Thunderfist

Great gloves because they give us free 5-link for Kinetic Blast, Attack speed and flat lightning damage.


Boots

Sorcerer Boots

Look for boots with at least 170 Energy shield, 30% movement speed and some res if you can get it.

Extremely good enchant would be “Adds 1-160 Lightning damage if you haven’t killed recently” but that’s a luxury.


Left Ring

Opal Ring

Rings are expensive for this build because Opal Ring base is expensive by itself, especially combined with good mods.

On rings look for:

Elemental damage with Weapons, Attack speed, Lightning damage to attacks. Any energy shield mod is great as well.


Right Ring

Opal Ring

Pretty much look for same stats as previously mentioned ring.


Amulet

Presence of Chayula

Perfect amulet for low life builds – gives us stun immunity and scales our Energy shield from our max life.


Belt

Crystal Belt

Look for high flat Energy shield (at least 40) and resistances. If you have resistances covered, elemental damage with weapons is very good on belt.


1Hand Weapon

Prophecy Wand

Look for wand with at least 65% increased spell damage, at least 10% crit chance and at least 1.5 attacks per second attack speed. Lightning damage to attacks and Crit multiplier are nice bonuses.


Offhand

Prism Guardian

This shield allows us to boost our auras and reserve them using life instead of mana.


Jewel

Build Jewels

On jewels look for (in terms of priority):

1.) Attack speed with wands
2.) Global crit multiplier
3.) Spell damage while holding a shield

4.) Attack speed while holding a shield

5.) Increased spell damage


Flask

Flask Setup

1.) Vessel of Vinktar (Adds lightning damage to attacks version)

2.) Basalt Flask with bleed removal

3.) Dying Sun

4.) Quicksilver flask of adrenaline

5.) Atziri’s Promise or Diamond Flask with freeze removal

  1. How about Pierce? Is the Kinetic Blast clear speed great enough even without Pierce? And why do you not use a Silver Flask, as it grants Status Ailments Immunity due to Raider Ascendancy Avater of the Veil?

  2. So this is the first time I’ve seen a build go for a Prophecy Wand instead of an Imbued Wand, is there a particular reason for this?

  3. Tree is broken

  4. Would the tree be any different if I used skyforth’s?

  5. How would this compact to use a witch occultist in place of a ranger? I know it would be useable but from what I’m reading same to slightly higher aoe and defences but a little slower in terms of movement am I missing anything?

  6. Second question – Why do you need an Anti-Freeze flask when you have Avatar of the Veil?

    • gems

      You might as well run without it because the chance of getting frozen is extremely low, however I like to have one for emergencies when you are not phasing.
