The COE Wiz can do it even faster. Don t shoot the boss with the Archon bean cause you cancel the hydra procs. So shoot in the other direction.
This is incorrect. I think you may misunderstand the hydra bug. If hydra is cast and it procs it will take priority over any proc chance you will have, thus eliminating your damage and only hydra will deal damage
you want to still target the rg with your beam so you can build stricken, whether you hit the rg or not has no impact on hydra damage itself
