    I was finally able to try this set out with 5 necro and 5 infallible aether. I actually do MUCH better with 5 necro, 3 willpower, and a heavy/medium infernal guardian. Guess maybe the extra magica? I dunno. Still haven’t gotten a sharpened vmA lightning staff, but am sure that will propel my power.

    Did Undaunted Infiltrator get nerfed in the Homestead update? I saw it’s no longer in the mix. Or is it because you named the build after Infallible?

    it didn’t get nerfed :) it was never part of my sorc build, only of the dk build… And I might be changing that soon too.

    Hello,

     

    thanks for this build im finally able to farm maelstrom pretty easy,since i am a healer and never intended to actually gear/level up for a soloarena,but had the gear laying around and gave it a try.Without really knowing the mechanics i managed to even do my first run with a 5kk score ^^but i got some questions:

     

    Currently im wearing 5xnekro,3xaether,2xilambris and a charged lightning maelstrom staff.I also have a precise lightning maelstrom staff would that be better?

    Theres only Stage 7 Endboss where i keep dying(2-3x per run) because very often my pets kill one of the Casters and the second one is near the boss dying from Volatile Familiar AoE.Do you have a tip for me?(“Controlling” the Pets feels quite clunky to me)

     

    again thanks for the build,

    greetz

    wouldnt this build do more damage with moondancer sharpen lighting staff front bar and Vma lightning staff back bar, cast wall of storm from the back bar because the crushing wall enchant carry over to the front ? and you get the 4 pcs moondancer bonus on the front bar plus the benefit of the vma staff crushing wall enchant ?

    Have you had better results with Kena or illabris for the 1 piece?

    It seems they may drop cost reduction cp completely and drop regen cp to 15% from 25% with the next expansion. If that happens, this build is going to get REALLY popular.

    Hi,

    thanks for the build. I was able to complete vMA finally.

    Quick question – which would be better:

    5x necro 5x elegance 1x monster

    5x necro 3x willpower 2x monster (ilambris, slimecraw, infernal guardian)

    I dont have access to trial sets yet.

    Edit: one more thing – do you use empowered ward? or hardened ward? in the video and skill picture it says hardened but in the description it says empowered.

    I’m not the SME, but I would imagine 2 piece monster and 3 wp> 1 piece and elegance, simply because of the proc.

    I just got my second piece of ilambris last night and am dying to test out my previously unsuccessful VMA. Stage 5 giantess keeps owning me with surprise shatters. when my shield is down.

    Mind giving more insight on your setup? What do you have in your Overload bar?

    Here’s a full vDSA run with this build, 2 other petsorcs and a tank. The damage is amazing, it is very easy to break 40k scores with it. No healer needed, 3 times crit surge and one with twilight heal (me in that case). More damage than any other traditional tank, 2 dd and healer setup.

    So I finally got all the pieces necessary and gave this a try and blew through round 5 everything FLAWLESS until the final round of the ice stage and now I have died probably 100 times trying to beat this god damn round. The ads are murdering me and I do not know what to do. I can’t even spam shield fast enough once the first platform is broken and that damn neried spawns. Her plus the mages almost one shot me and I don’t understand what I am doing wrong.

     

    Tips?

    This one is the definitive hard round for anyone doing VMA.

     

    Die, over and over until you learn.

     

    What I do is : I start all platforms, get speed, then i start the regen one, lastly I get defense + attack sigils. This keeps me alive vs ranged, while I aoe burn down all the adds at the last round + the boss. You can focus on the adds until shes at like 20%, to whcih she’ll automatically destroy the last pad.

     

    Make sure to interrupt the trolls with “Force Shock” over and over. It helps to run to their pad and simply aoe them, adds, and the boss simultaneously.

     

    Aside from this, she detroys pads at 70%, 50%? and about 20%. After she detroys the 2nd pad, nereids and several ranged adds spawn – this is where I grab the defensive sigil, it will deflect their projectiles. Lure them in, AOE them all. Finish up boss.

     

    It takes a lot of practice, this one is tough for most people.

     

    Be prepared to die a lot in all arenas 5+, especially 7 and 9 :). Took me 15 hours first try.

    Hello,

    Very much enjoying the build and have had many people asking about it in vet dungeons and complimenting the dps.

    I have tweaked it slightly and am running double slotted bound armour instead of the twilight matriarch but wondering if this is the best thing to do or not? Is the passive dmg from extra pet better than more magic and defence?

    Thanks in advance

    Good stuff! Call me masochistic but I was also trying to do it without using any sigils which I finally did accomplish. I think it was something to do with a little red circle the neried puts under you and maybe I wasn’t moving out of it.

    First try took me probably a year since I didn’t have the patience and only spent an hour or two in there and then quit. 2nd completion took me about 2 hours. Now goal is to get 510K+ so I can get on leaderboards which I can see doing fairly soon with this build.

     

    EDIT: How long do sigils last? Being on xbox it is hard to tell.

    I want to say 30-40 seconds. They seem to last the same amount of time potion effects do (major sorcery, prophecy)

     

    i only use two digits : shield and axe.

     

     

    I use the shield during ranged heavy mob phases. I also use it during the Ashe demon? In arena 9, and I use it cs the arena 9 boss after the obsidian sphere phase, when he instantly nukes you with skulls. During this time I burn him down while enjoying him standing still for free.

     

    I also use use it during third platform in arena 5.

     

    They only take take a bit off your points. It is better than dying for sure.

     

     

     

    As for the guy using bound armor, neighbor bonuses over a free heal from matriarch.

    Oh damn thats awesome. I thought it was only maybe 10-15 seconds. I can’t wait to do a run with sigils. I should have flawless down in no time. I’m guessing this build isn’t ideal for high scoring speed runs though.

     

    I read each sigil is worth 750 points unused too.
