General Playstyle and Disclaimer
This build works a lot like CM/WW insofar that it resets your cool downs quite fast now that mob density is amazing. It is also VERY Arcane intensive and I have found that you need 3 sources of APoC.
The premise is when you see a group of mobs pre-charge your EB:CR then wander on in and start off with a quick nova then start Disintegrate while continually casting EB as it doesn’t interrupt the channeling of your CM fuel-Disintegrate. When FN wears off reapply as needed. I don’t like to perma-freeze as I like the mobs to keep coming into the EB radius. At times I have been able to stand in 3 pools of Desecrate while channeling. Also I would like to add that I have taken the build up to 2.2 APS and it was functioning quite well but on some long fights I ran into arcane issues. While it is not the most efficient build out there I am having a heck of a lot of fun playing it and it is amazing to watch on screen. As a side note I rarely play solo so I guess I would say this is a very party friendly build.
I did a little video to showcase the game play and a friend joined in partway through…( I always forget about the quick join). Unfortunately I do not have a great computer that can handle video capturing as well as me playing but I did my best and will try to make more videos as time permits.
If there are any questions I will try to answer them as best I can although I have always been more of a lurker/reader than an active poster.
Please have fun and feel free to try it out for yourself! :)

I would like to give some of the credit to Malakai as he helped me out a lot in the infancy of this build and made a lot of suggestions as I worked things out.
