Intro & build description
No idea what to play in Legion? Reworked Storm Burst feels great to play if you haven’t tried it yet. While Legion league focuses on revamping melee combat and melee skills, it works great for spellcasters since items tend to get cheaper. Storm Burst feels great to use as soon as you get it (end of Act 1) and only keeps getting better as you progress through the game.
- Very high single target/AoE damage
- Can take a hit (not squishy)
- Great clear speed
- Fun gameplay
- Some items might get expensive (depends on meta)
