It seems like that should make it as good or better than the fire runes with firebird set, and still allow us to wear Aughild's and Crimson's. It didn't seem that great when I tried it though. I missed using MM conflagration and I actually ran into AP issues. I wonder if it would be worth it with all the good lightning items though. My gut feeling from playing with it is that it's just not as good as Firebird chain reaction, despite how good it looks on paper. Anyone have a different experience? Anyone makin' it work?
