2.4.3 T13 MH Sage DB Speedfarming (Rasha+Sage)
This is a high mobility/high damage build for speedfarming T13 DB/Bounties.
A very fun and efficient build.
This build uses Tal set+MH for the high damage output, Aether walker+high RCR for high mobility, and Sage set+Nemesis in order to maximize DB per hour.
The problem when using Sage set is mostly survivability. This build uses Orb Of Infinite Depth+Aquila+EW for damage mitigation while moving, and OOID+Aquila+Mantle Of Channeling+Tageuk when standing still.
I've based this build over various AT builds I've encountered that were mostly suitable for GR.
Spam teleport to move between elite packs, and try to keep OOID stack+Aquila Up.
Once you get to an Elite pack Refresh Tal's 4 stack (make sure to also refresh OOID with EB) and then use your AT:SD to try and hit all enemies around you in order to proc Pain Enhancer AS bonus.
After that focus on elites spamming AT:SD till they all die, try not to drop stacks as those will hurt your damage+DR.
Always try to fight within dense mobs, this will increase your AS and your MH proc chance.
Rinse, repat, enjoy.
APOC on off hand is mandatory.
Preferred stats on gear can be found here:
You need sage on Boots, and Helm or Gloves.
I usually prefer gloves because they need more "special" stats which you have more control over when you craft them.
You can pick whatever armor skill you like, I personally recommend Energy Armor:Force Armor or Ice Armor:Crystalize for increased survivability.
In order to maintain > 90% uptime for Aquila while spamming Teleport /Spamming AT we need:
1)High Regen with Arcanot+Astral Presence
2)High RCR (~40%)
4)+Max Arcane Power (Weapon+Orb+Paragon)
It is possible that with higher RCR than 40% you will be able to drop Astral Presence, however this will take stat slots that should be reserved for AS, as AS is very important for MH procs.
At the moment +%Lighting damage does not increase your MH proc, and therefore get trifecta on your Amulet and LOH instead of +%Elem DMG on your bracers.
There is a variation with dropping Arcanot +Astral Presence for Magic Weapon:Conduit+Blur/Unwavring Will, however I find that the Arcanot+Astral Presence combo is more reliable.
AT and Calamity are staple, you can change runes on EB, and pick a different cold skill than Glacial Spike however:
EB:CR is best used with OOID.
Glacial Spike along with HighCC and APOC can be used as generator if your Aquila drops.
Head: Socketed Topaz
Paralysis, Audacity, Astral Presence.
You are free to pick whatever 4th passive you like, I personally like Unstable Anomaly for the cheat death.
UPDATE: I did notice that my Aquila dropped more on this rift than usual, and it appears that between switching builds I forgot to put points into Paragon:Max Arcane power.
This is very important, having an higher resource pool will make spenders cost less % overall, and therefore you are more likely to be above the 90% resource required.
With my current setup I am farming around 800 DB/hr. I'm guessing that with fully optimized gear, Caldesann Despair/High paragon this one can go higher, maybe even 1100-1200+ DB/hr.
I hope you will enjoy this build, special thanks to everyone who did extensive tests with various Wiz builds this season, you guys rock.
