Anomalous Awakened Unbound Ailments Support boosts not only our damage, but also gives increased Effect of non-Damaging Ailments, which further increases our Shock on the Enemy, based on Shaper of Storms. Awakened Swift Affliction Support, Awakened Burning Damage Support and Awakened Empower Support are generic damage increases.
Hatred is our main active offensive aura. It provides a large amount of Cold Damage, greatly increasing our overall DPS. Determination and Grace are our main active defensive auras. They provide a bonus flat and % multiplier to both Armour and Evasion, to scale up our base defences. Herald of Purity and Herald of Ash are our Heralds of choice, increasing our Damage output as well as our clearing potential. Discipline grants flat Energy Shield as well as an increased recharge rate. Since we are using Eldritch Battery and Mind Over Matter combo, we increase our effective Health Pool as well as our "Mana Pool" to cast spells and activate Haste or Malevolence with Divine Blessing Support when needed. Vitality grants more Life Regeneration as it is levelled up. You might need to keep this gem at a lower level to be able to reserve everything else.
Since we use Determination, Molten Shell is our Guard Skill of choice, granting us a huge absorb shield which scales with Armour. The more Armour, the larger the absorb shield, up to a maximum of 10,000. Keep in mind that Molten Shell only works against Hit damage, not Damage over Time.
Single Target Debuff
To enhance our single target damage, we use a specific Arcanist Brand setup. This Brand periodically activates while attached, triggering linked spells in order. We link it with Hydrosphere, Flame Surge and Combustion Support. Hydrosphere acts as our target dummy next to the boss to gain a massive damage boost from Gloomfang.
Flame Dash is our mobility skill of choice. It allows for swift teleports to zoom from pack to pack or to avoid dangerous mechanics. It also lets us blink over obstacles or dash to higher environmental layers. Since it is dealing Fire Damage and leaves a trail of fire, this can potentially ignite foes and let them explode in the same way our Ethereal Knives does.
