you talked about 107..., and yeah im para 1450.... Dunno what you mean by 100 is different to 110? Isn't that obvious?
no rocket science math: 20% multiplicative from orb = 20% more dmg (not to mention the def bonus it gives outside of archon and during the most important time inside archon...). simple as that. If a rift was just the boss fight, any aether walker user would switch to orb / pig sticker / or anything else immediately.
Just trying to give alternatives. If that's not ok or welcome, then I'm fine with that as well.
as i said i cleared 104. and hm, I'm kinda like the only one using a slightly different build (with orb in cube, GW as passive instead of PH, shield bracers, teleport/safe passage, no force armor; still wondering why, since it's MUCH more consistent in clearing rifts overall), just can't fit in power hungry without fishing for that perfect rift like in that #1 clear right there (and many other #1 clears tbh).
I have much less problems with agnidox. regularly doing 100s solo and yeah, np. Boss dies in 2 min most of the time, I know that
still I'm confident to say, if you go for Power Hungry instead of GW you just have 20% more multiplicative dmg compared to that Aether walker build, so yeah in theory it's capable to go higher...
I tried that Aether walker / calamity build, but....you know: fish, fish, fish, you can just leave without density.
And by the way on my 104 clear I was just messing around, since I was mad at dying. I cleared with 14k int / 11k vit... you just need that perfect right so you can push properly
the rift festering/mobtype is just too easy in comparison to everything else. Done my 104 yesterday getting it on floor 5... the difference in difficulty is just stupid. Can clear 50% of the rift in 2-3 min...
All rank#1 clears as it looks like have the exact same rift... It's more pigeonholed as it was before, which makes me sad, since I'm not willing to open 500+ rifts just to get that on floor 1...
Gratz anyway, very determined it seems
Still this wiz build is only playable in crazy density, and it was nice and refreshing to see how much that aether walker build actually struggles in killing bosses
