What is so special in this build that would be helpful to gain DB's faster than in ordinary way? This build is extremely good for gold farm and to icrease speed of rift farming because you dont need to collect coins from elites.
Sage's set. Nets you 1 extra DB everytime it drops.
Slow as in to kill enemies or slow as in how long it takes to clear the whole rift?
I do admit that it starts slow - but once you kill the first elite and you keep the ball rolling - everything becomes a lot quicker.
Remember - it's all about killing that first elite - once you get everything proc'd - you need to get to the next elite asap or it's just an uphill battle.
Even with all the Tal Rash stacks, you're main damage dealer is the Explosive Blast - SO NO AETHER WALKER - as that just eats up your arcane. Especially once In-Geom kicks in, it'll eat that up with the amount of Explosive Blast it casts. But once you do have all those stacks up - killing elites shouldn't take more than 3 seconds top! And you can teleport as much as you want. Skip all the regular mobs and attack ONLY Elites/Champions. Killing them, nets you those orbs which reduce the clear times by a lot especially if that's all you are killing.
The flashfire build is alot slower. The Db gain / time spent is alot better with my archon variation.
You're playing it wrong then. You need to have In-Geom cubed - You kill an elite/champion - you gain the In-Geom proc - teleport to the next elite/champion and kill him. Don't need to kill everyone, just enough to proc In-Geom. You can do a Tier 13 in less than 3 minutes.
