Build Guide

This is a New Meta build for 4 player pushing and speeds. Works best with a rift guardian killer, support barb, and support monk.


Rotation

- Ignite an Elite with Arcane Torrent and Electrocute to get 20 Firebird stacks

- Cast Wave of Force in large groups to get damage stacks

- Fill your Arcane Power with Electrocute (at least 5 casts to gain Arcane Dynamo)

- Cast Meteor

- Cast Electrocute 3-4 times to gain some Arcane Power

- Channel Arcane Torrent while Meteor hits. You need to be fast enough to start channeling before the Meteor lands!


Video explaining the rotation and how to practice it in town: www.twitch.tv/videos/218355045 (Warning: I sound condescending due to someone accusing me of using a macro since my "timing was too good.")


In large groups, wait until 1 second before Arcane Convention of Elements rotation starts to cast your first Meteor. The second Meteor needs to be casted 1.25 seconds before Arcane Phase ends. You want 2 Meteors to land during the Arcane rotation. If you have enough trash coming in, you can continue to cast 3-4 more meteors between Convention of Elements Arcane phases.


You can also drop Magic Weapon Ignite for Black Hole Spellsteal and use the 2pc Firebird bonus to ignite elites. (Warning: This variation is much harder to play and only recommended for trying to push to the limits.)
