HOW IT WORKS
This build makes use of procs in order to maximize your damage output, by forsaking defensive statistics you’ll be able to decimate your enemies in a matter of seconds.
Lightning manifestation allows you to hit additional enemies, not only does it deal a moderate amount of damage for a 2 resource consumer over the time that it’s active, it’s also counted as a full hit for each target allowing procs to have 2 chances per second to activate provided you also hit enemies with other abilities. Enhancing Lightning manifestation with a rampant augment allows you to hit up to 11 targets with lightning manifestation alone, often proccing and applying affliction to enemies beyond your other abilities 6 target limit.
Molten Earth allows you to lock down a singular enemy while dealing a large amount of damage. Make sure to run behind ranged enemies that are rooted so you can avoid taking damage.
Optionally you can use Stunning Swirl which allows you to impair 6 targets around you, dealing damage and stunning them for 3 seconds giving you some time to recuperate health through leeching frenzy. Use this ability if you have trouble with larger groups of enemies.
Leeching frenzy can be purged so make sure to reactivate it after ghouls decide to strip you from your buffs before using your consumers.
Immortal Spirit provides you with a reliable way to activate Thirst/Equilibrium/Coney island band should you have these, (Thirst is a requirement for this build, do not use this build without it).
Martial Discipline gives you a 50% chance to glance incoming hits, abilities that are glanced take no effect, so impairs have a 50% chance to fail, in addition every glance will incur a small healing affect that can critically heal and activate Thirst/Equilibrium/Coney island band.
