  • Starfire

You need a mixture of 5 tals 3 vyrs. Chest/Amulet/Source ( and belt if Swami) must be tals. Shoulder, boots must be vyrs

weapon: starfire

armor: swami/fazula (whichever one you don't have on)

jewelry: ring of royal grandeur

Attack speed on 3 items (pref weapon, zodiac, and chest), cdr on all but amulet (can be on amulet too but AS on amulet is better IMO), need lightning to be highest elemental damage so have it on bracers or amulet, you don't need it on both because MH damage doesn't benefit from it (starfire being exception, watch Cratic's vid below for more info). APOC on source preferred. You could also put on a Swami for more APOC. Cdr 55+ preferred.

For speeds you simply put ingeom in cube, put on nemesis bracers and use teleport calamity over spellsteal (change cold spell if needed).

Build Guide

Archon rune MUST BE COMBUSTION, otherwise you will not get 4 stacks of Tal Rasha.

As soon as you enter rift get your 3 stacks of Tal then pop archon for your 4th. Gather mobs in this phase to prepare them for the swami overlap when you pop archon again.

Try to hit elites at max range (50 yards) for maximum bonus on Zei, same with RG.

Melee range oculus is not worth it.

Taunt on templar if using.

https://twitch.tv/xfrequ Haven't played that much since week 1, but I do hop on d3 every now and then (I'll most like be testing stuff on PTR now that its live). I'd also check out fuczzang who was rank 1 wiz in s8 and is (as of January 31st, 2017) rank 1 wiz world in s9. He streams often so he is a great resource (he's korean but understands english and will respond to your comments too).


So on PTR (which was what the vid was recorded in) I said Pig sticker/starfire was better than SF/Furnace, I assumed it was just due to higher APS from pig sticker=more procs but it also turns out that the bonus damage to elites doesn't even affect MH proc damage, neither does lightning% (starfire being the exception). Cratic tested, vid here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_DkfY1SU_4
