Just figured I would make a thread to share the build. I have ~80 mana regen (4 pc zuni, mana regen on offhand AND weapon) or so and am able to support the following build. I find that it is an excellent range build with equitable dmg to bears, but lacks AoE outside of Locust Swarm, which becomes pretty much spammable with this build (within reason).
Chuck is still trying to determine if it stacks or not but frankly that doesn't matter, its more useful for this build for mana regen. When using LS, if you hold down shift and using Locust Swarm in a circular motion around your character (think 360 degree here) making sure each individual unit gets infected - this allows for the jumping of locust back and forth, even amongst enemies already infected, and each jump gives you 40 mana or so... which adds up.
This build is great with either 1h mojo or 2h, try it out and let me know what you think!
Items to look for:
SB dmg on offhand, SoJ, and (if possible) mara's. 25% MORE DMG TO SB + 20% from PtV + 30% to ubers/elites = a LOT of extra dmg before crits.
The goal is to increase the dmg by such a high amount that WoS, by itself, can melt things. I have used this on MP10 to great effect but it really shines in MP8. Have not tried on ubers but i dont think its an issue. I cant make a video at some point for this.
Just swap out SH for ubers if you want. I think locust would still be very useful (esp maghda fight) for ubers so I would hesitate on removing it but that will require further testing.
Also this works well with LoH (pyrogeist/locust) or lifesteal (SB). I would say though that having both is optimal - LoH on BT only for myself, around 400 loh.
My only issue is that you cannot fully control where ur dmg is being directed at sometimes between pyro and SB. Also, you will be half empty on mana a lot but apparently that means you are fully maximizing your dps.
Anyhow let me know what you think! I also feel like this could be decent pvp build, meaning pyro + SB + (PtV/VQ/RoE) with whatever else lends itself well for pvp.
As always, try it out, let me know what you think, and please provide suggestions/comments!
