the video guide for COLD version is up: https://youtu.be/hv3zrPDGGQk
So, for some unknown reason Spirit Barrage is STILL considered a pet, even though it does not work with Zunimassa anymore. However, it gets Ring of Emptiness buff as well as other buffs from Mask of Jeram and Enforcer gem. I think that this is a bug and potentially will be fixed. However, this bug is not entirely ground-breaking, overpowered or life-changing, it just gives the opportunity to play a powerful spellcaster LON WD build, which in my opinion is great. So let's use this opportunity while it lasts!
Cold version can be completely passive if you use Manitou or spellcaster-oriented if you use Spirit is Willing or Phlebotomize. I absolutely prefer Phlebotomize for more recovery.
Build is still work in progress, but is already pretty solid and you know it does well on the leaderboard wtih R1 on NS NA (GR103).
Please support the build by upvoting if you like it.
GR80 VIDEO IS TEMPORARY AND FOR DEMONSTRATION ONLY FOR NOW, I HAVE ZERO AUGMENTS AND NON-ANCIENT MOJO THERE.
Once i will do augments and get better mojo i will record a proper video guide and a GR90 (i hope) as i usually do.
And this is the Fire version of the Spirit Barrage LON Barber build.
It also works well, and in fact does more damage then the cold version, although it's a bit jellier cause we don't have Freeze from Frostburns.
The build is very different from the COLD spec so i had to create a completely seperate build for it.
FIRE VERSION OVERALL SHOULD GIVE MUCH MORE DAMAGE THAN COLD VERSION and be MUCH SMOOTHER cause we have FOUR Spirit Barrage runes.
For now i think that mainly Phantasm counts as pet and therefore gets a MOJ/enforcer buff. For the self-cast SB i am not so sure and tests must be done.
Asians did plenty of tests but i can't undertstand anything on their forums.
There's a lot of things that need to be tested.
1) Like what is exactly is a pet
2) what buff does pet get. Does it get furnace for example? What multiplies work? I think someone wrote that furnace does not work and i have a feeling that others multipliers might be broken as well.
3) how much damage is from selfcasting or from phantasms
4) how much damage mimics do and what exactly affects them now
5) does barber proc area damage or not (i saw reports that it DOES NOT)
and many more.
Unfortunately i have very limited time for bug exploration right now. Might find some later on
