I would start by crafting new shoulders (same set, better version). Roll for higher CD on Granduar ring and after that it becomes "hard". You want to get Frostburn Gloves, Witching hour, Tal'rasha pieces and I dunno how good your off-hand is as they wont show us :/ but maybe gamble for that aswell. Then you want some more useful bracers and after all this it really depends on what you find. If you find 2 pieces of Firebird then you maybe want to swap out some stuff and get that 500 int bonus and so on.
l2d3.com/calculator - I put a link in the guide this calculator that can help you out with this stuff - simple to use and its really handy to see if for example getting 2 firebirds pieces would be better than your gloves and helm and so on.
I was wondering though, I've gotten very used to hydra for my builds. Would a frost hydra fit in there as wel, substituted for sparkflint?
They seem to do some nice damage and slow upfront.
Yeah you can play around with the skill in sparkflints place. Can also be frost nova, archon, ray of frost and so on. I linked in a earlier comment 2 items that makes using hydra in this build very awesome.
Also another thing, is it worth using azurewrath without int? I got 3 so far and none had int, the best one I have got 7% aspd, 17% Cold dmg and socket, 2170 dps, and I still have the option to reroll something, I was thinking or change spd for int or try more damage. also is it worth changing my current one for azure? thanks.
Sorry to those who asked for help with their builds. I havnt had the time to sit and look through it yet and it will still be a day or two. Anyways! A lot of your questions are already answered in the guide and or by using the calculator on l2d3.com so make use of these tools and just play around with items and builds. I will gladly help and point you in a direction when I got the time but don't rely on it
I have Andariel's Visage but it currently boosts Arcane damage and has 0 crit chance. Because my Winter Flurry also doesn't have crit chance, I don't want to reroll the Arcane to Cold damage and equip the helm till I get a Winter Flurry w/ CC or a Mirror Ball. (I use MM instead of Electrocute because it's really been better for my survivability. Can comfortable run T1 rifts with no deaths. Only done a couple T2 rifts but they take a lot more time than T1 and I always get one or two deaths
Russian is not quite my native language but if it got: Int, vit, crit, 4 apoc and high damage then the only thing you could do is reroll vitality to arcane orb damage. The legendary affix is not the best for this build so even a mirrorball with alittle less stats would be better but yeah.. It is a super awesome orb for the lightning build so you could even go and try that out.
Following Improvements can be made (From top to the bottom):
Head (Decent) - Get rid of the attack speed, attack speed is bad. Aim for Arcane Orb damage or Socket for Life %
Shoulders (Good) - Secondary Could be the only improvement (Healing Orbs/Damage Reduction)
Necklace (Decent) - Attack Speed is bad, aim for Crit Hit Damage (You can get almost 100% in this slot!) or Cold Damage.
Chest (Good) - Although the Int roll is a bit low and the secondary can be better.
Gloves (Good) - Enchant either Fire damage if possible or the attack speed, but mostly this slot is pretty good.
Waist (Bad) - Go for Toughness here (Armor/All Resist), also poor Int Roll & Secondaries.
Wrist (Good) - Nothing to improve except for more Intellect.
Rings (Good) - If you can sacrifice Vitality try aiming for Base Damage
Legs (Bad-decent) - Get rid of the life per second, try aiming for better secondaries.
Weapon (Decent) - Good weapon, can get higher base damage or a weapon With cold Damage
Boots (Good) - Nothing to change, legendary boots will improve the stats but aim for those you have there now
Offhand (Good) - Reduce Cooldown is a bit useless
In General, try to aim for better secondaries (going higher Torment means you want to maintain secondary stats more). Reduced Ranged/Melee damage, Resistance, Globe Healing is all pretty decent. Your gems should get upgraded, expensive but farm/grind that gold. Remember you only need to craft them once and they are really worth it. Also you wanna try to gather some decent set items with Ring of Royal Grandeur, Aughild bracers + Shoulders are good to craft and they give some insane toughness at the same time with the (3) bonus while only equipping two set items. Vyr's Amazing (2) set is also +500 intellect and Tal'Rasha is just awsome in every way always go for this imo.
Great thread. I'm running this spec and looking to further improve. I'm about to get the DPS spreadsheet for exact details, but do you all have any thoughts on upgrades from here on out? I think I can get a better neck, and other than that.... I guess hoping for decent + cold damage items.
