update 27/01: clared 77 with this (~rank 500 season EU)
With this build I cleared only 2 grifts below the "gg op dmo arcane orbit" build (my equipment on dmo is much better with a gg wand + almost perfect ring/amulet. overall just better than this EB only build).
Currently I'm at grift 73 (season) and working on beating my own grift 75 record to get into the leaderboards with no standard build. shouldnt take too long.
This build is shared to show people that there are several builds working this season.
The idea was born since I wanted to make a pure EB build work and when I switched to the "flashfire" build for speed rifts.
EB does double damage with firebird equipped (if the item effect of woh now triggers the firebird set, too - it used to don't do that). Also the burn effect is quite nice since it gets boosted by the 6pc tal rasha bonus.
So that would 4000% increased damage with both sets. unfortunately the burn effect actually is weird with this. so you get 4000% dmg until they burn and then the usual 2000% from tal rasha + the burn effect (which is unfortunately far inferior to the ramp up in the first 3 seconds)
If you get CDR on all your pieces you can try switch out esoteric alteration for taeguk. the damage increase would be huge but unfortunately it still stacks very slow compared to lets say whirlwind or something else. and knockbacks or other cc could mess your stacks up. Still need to get some cdr pieces to try it out.
max arcane power in paragon for more uptime on aquila.
primary skill (to proc lightning attack) is up to you. i like spectral blade cus it's the best for stutter stepping. electrocute with surge power is another option and maybe you can drop the max arcane power points in paragon.
I would like to fit barrier blades in here but it seems impossible!?!
This build is NOT optimized. Give me feedback what you think. The potential is there.
