Gems:


- Helm: Diamond (CDR)
- Armor: Topaz (Int)
- Weapon: Emerald (CHD)

Gear Notes:


- Your highest +Elemental% has to be Lightning% (this is mandatory! the dmg of your Archon is dynamic and refers to your highest rolled +Elemental%)
- Arcane Power on Crit on both Helm and Offhand (at least one roll is required)
- As on every Archon Build, CDR is the most crucial stat and should be #1 priority
- In-geom and Starfire can be switched - equip the better one, cube the other

Variations:


Skills:


For passives, you can use Illusionist instead of Power Hungry or Unstable Anomaly for the movement speed buff, which is nice for picking up items etc.


Frost Nova: Frozen Mist is just there to proc the cold Tal'Rasha stack, you can switch it to any other skill which procs TR, for example Blizzard: Snowbound. However, Frost Nova has no Animation and doesnt cost resource, therefor imo its the best choice.


Avarice Band:


You can drop Obsidian and use Avarice Band like i did in the video. This requires you to kill at least 1-2 elite packs during Archon since you cant manually reset it with Arcane Torrent. This can be a problem in bad rifts which lack elites but it shoud work fine in most of the rifts.


If using Avarice, i recommend to replace Zeis' or Trapped for Boon of the Hoarder - your damage will still be more than enough.


In the video, i used a little different setup with Electrocute: Chain Lightning, which works ok and doesnt require APoC, but i would definitely recommend using Arcane Torrent.

Build Guide

Rotation:


  • Keep up Energy Armor and Magic Weapon
  • Have 3 Tal'Rasha stacks from Arcane Torrent / Teleport / Frost Nova before you enter Archon
  • Morph into Archon (this will give you the 4th Tal'Rasha stack)
  • Kill enemies with Archon Desintegration (right mouse button)
  • Keep distance from enemies to proc your Zeis' / Starfire / Power Hungry
  • Try to kill 1-2 elite packs before Archon ends

This is a variant of the known Vyr'Rasha Build, which combines the new Manald Heal with a few range-multilpliers. The damage is just insane - in the video i didnt use Zeis' nor i spent any paragons on mainstat and it absolutely crushes T13.


Update:


  • Changed Prismatic Armor to Force Armor to prevent getting oneshot at higher tier GR's
  • Changed stat priority on Amulet to Intelligence (instead of Lightning%) due to the Lightning% bug - keep in mind you have to have one Lightning% roll on Bracers whatsoever to make Archon deal Lightning damage

LordFluffy made a great video, explaining the important things of the build in detail. The video can be found here.

Thanks @LordFluffy!
