Why are you saying you can’t shock bosses? Beacon of ruin lets you shock anything in the game as long as you do at least 1 lightning damage. It’s one of the main advantages of playing elementalist to begin with. For everyone following this build, I just modified main pathing and some gem choice. It will be a bit more efficient that way. Do you want to poe buy items? If you do, you can visit U4GM to have more guides and methods about this.
This is a build for an Elementalist, Lightning Tendrils Cast While Channeling Arc for the clear, that can apply 50% shock to every monster in the game, even endgame bosses.
3.2 BSC League Achievements and DPS :
At level 87 I cleared Uber Izaro, Shaper and his Guardians, Red Elder and his red Guardians, Uber Atziri. Only Uber Elder seems out of reach with this build.
The DPS is at approximately 2M on Shaper with my current semi-optimized setup, you should expect around 1M dps with recommended item and non optimized gear, and between 500 and 600k dps with budget gear.
+ Extremely fun.
+ Fast clear speed.
+ Insane damage even on bosses.
+ Off-meta build.
+ Party play friendly.
+ Viable for 95% of the content.
– Squishy on a full damage setup, so not HC viable unless you change the passive tree to a more defensive one.
– Some pieces are costly.
– You need Uber Lab for a fully functional build.
– Elementalist 2pts Ascendancy doesn’t feel rewarding to take, so Normal Lab and Merciless Lab feels bad to run.
I have quite a few bloopers here and there sadly,as english is not my native language. Beacon is a huge boost against bosses of cause, especially against shaper, since without it we would shock him for 1% more damage taken at best. With beacon though it’s 20% minimum which is great.
