well not sure how that would play for top leaderboard and solo vs 4p but I see a 5piece firebird and 2piece vyr Archon build there ?
As long as you can ignite elites by using beam, attack and explosion in Archon form you can gain the firebird 6p bonus dmg and dmg reduction easily enough(and forget chantodo, which anyway, bleah)?
I mean, you can easily put in another weapon like maybe sun keeper for extra damage to elites and rift guardian or anything with fire damage%, there's plenty anyway.
You could throw in lots of cdr, explosive blast source, archon stacks belt, aquila cuirass(or archon stacks helm even though we found out it's no longer multiplicative) the ring+neck set for additinal damage and damage reduction or xodiac ring and, and being able to survive on your own anyway ?
it'd probably pull more damage than the 2p vyr and 6p tal rasha with chantodo anyway, considering the 6p 2400% dmg woul dhave a way more consistent uptime than a 7-8 second burst damage of the tal rasha archon build ?
I'm not sure it'd deal more damage than the other build the 4p vyr and 6 tal rasha though. Those 100% attack speed, armor and all res are rather nice. At least for solo. probably would do more damage in groups ? Sorry for the rambling, off the top of my head :p
What i see is:
set neck+ring and halo of arlise for solo, possibly set neck+ring and zodiac for party ? or maybe even just zodiac + halo of arlise and a good neck.(cube is for rorg) if you jut want faster Archon and also halo of arlise protection in conjuctions with parthan defender
archon stacks belt
i'd wanna test if the Archon overlap head is worth keeping, it still is a good damage boost while not in Archon or when recasting depending on how much time you spend outside of Archon or if maybe it'd be better to switch to aquila cuirass for another 50% dmg reduciton suppose one or the other for solo/party again
archon - all runes with vyr 2p
familiar - sparkflint, e
weapon - deflection or ignite i guess i'd test which one makes your life easier(if bubble to absorb some dmg or one less ability cast for firebird 6p)
frost armor - armor rune if you have halo of arlise OR arcane armor if you have zodiac
a spender(if you go for zodiac ring) or a fire generator (if you don't)
teleport - stun rune, I guess you'd still use parthan defender even in party, no alternatives there really.
Weapon i see sunkeeper being the best for extra elite and rift bosses damage in party, but I guess that zankis axe would do too, an extra defense buff might be nice for solo ? or even a in-geom if you're fast enough with the killing to benefit from the 10 seconds less of Archon at least while clearing.
What do you say ?
