Build Guide

This build continuously fires off a channeling skill while it quickly teleports through the dungeon. The items Aether Walker, Hergbrash's Binding are crucial to this build's core functionality.

This build can be played with one hand possibly even one finger (if you map all your spenders to the mouse {LMB, RMB, WUP, WDN} and use numlock for channeling).

Upon starting a Greater Rift activate Storm Armor and Magic Weapon, then cast one Meteor and one Blizzard. Immediately initiate Arcane Torrent (hold that button down and never let it go). Tap Teleport once to trigger the full Tal's bonus. If you ever lose your Tal's set bonus redo this initial setup routine.

Combat is rather easy. Use short jumps to lock down mobs. Jump in a triangle or square pattern to avoid missiles. Always shoot where you are going to be not where you have been. If you stand still then cast Meteor to refresh the Tal's bonus (once every eight seconds).
