Transform into a being of pure arcane energy for 20 seconds. While in Archon form, your normal abilities are replaced by powerful Archon abilities, your damage is increased by 30%, and your Armor and resistances are increased by 150%.
Each enemy killed while in Archon form increases your damage by 6% for the remaining duration of Archon.
An explosion erupts around you when you transform, dealing 3680% weapon damage as Fire to all enemies within 15 yards.
Archon abilities deal Fire damage instead of Arcane.
For hardcore, you switch from Ancient Parthan Defenders to Ashnagarr Bracers and the fourth passive from Power Hungry to Galvanizing War. Reason: On HC you want to keep a bit more distance and not play as offensively (you can of course go all-in and play the SC variant on HC as well, but be prepared to rip!)
