If you want absolutely insane single target damage, this is the build for you. It can do all the content in the game, survive and has great clear speed. It will without doubt fare well in the new Harvest league due to its massive AoE and damage.

- Can do all the content in the game, including Awakener and Uber elder
- Immune to elemental ailments
- Can do any map mod there is

Craft it using Dense and Metallic fossils, to get decent energy shield, -9% Lightning resistance for nearby enemies and some resistance.
Body ArmourShavronne's Wrappings

BootsRare Energy Shield Boots
Look for rare Energy shield boots with 30% movement speed, at least 120 energy shield and some resistances. Intelligence would be good stat as well, if resists aren’t a problem.

Get one with Herald of Thunder buff effect mod, good second mod would be extra lightning damage or lightning resistance.
Right RingRare Moonstone Ring
