Last update 01/202016 (will update this build regularly, so make sure to come back every once in a while)

A consistent non In-Geom, cooldown and Teaguk depending, fast speed grift (50-60) build!
Please remember to like it when you enjoy this build!

It is one of the fastest and easiest build to play with and doesn't need that fantastic gear.
Currently I'm soloing 50 in 2 to 3min and 60 in between 3 and 4min. Not tested in groupplay yet.
Damage mitigation will be the bottleneck above 65+, switching gems and skills will slow gameplay too much.
65 is doable in 6min, but it will be more gear and para depending. Might wanna swap BotP to Eso.

For the T10 speed DB version, check: Spectracular TX farm 700+ Death Breath + 80L/h

A totally different, same speed build: Converged speed T10 farm 700+DB/h


Please note that stats shown as above are ideal, but you'll be fine with 'any' rolls.
Slot whatever weapon has highest DPS. Might have to run some calculations with bonus damage on Fragment later.
For belt and pants, unless you have 100% Depth Diggers, take Shame of Delsere.
Remember that vitality and life% influence your shielding (Dominance / Galvanizing / Deflection) !
Try to get some attack speed on rings (and maybe even on gloves + weapon when you can lose some vitality).


Get Explosive blast going with the numlock trick, or just spam it. Keep an eye on your stacks, since they're important to your damage mitigation!
Press both 'Force Stand Still' and right mouse-button to always spam Spectral Blades en keep teleporting right in front of the mobs.
This will keep both bonuses from F+R up, Deflection up and allows you to infinite teleport without getting out of AP.
For the Tal's bonuses you'll have your fire+arcane+lightning up, so last thing to do at an elite-pack is to drop your frozen mist.
You'll never lose your damage bonus and clicking Frost Nova will pretty much always give you the full 4pc bonus.

Make good use of your teleport stun ability, this way there are times you don't have to take any damage at all at elites / RG's.


Recommended: use Tal's Source and then get St. Archews gloves when you feel you kill packs fast enough.
You can swap Corruption and Nilfurs to get the 2pc Firebird cheat death.
Swap Nilfurs for Ice Climbers, works great.
Nemesis for Ashnaggar's, will slow gameplay down.

If you die a lot, have a look what is killing you. I suggest switching BotP for either Esotoric of Mutilation Guard, depending whats needed.
If you're pushing just a bit higher having no trouble surviving, swap BotP out for BotS.

Low 50's you're likely to play around with skills (and gems), 60 I'd suggest to stick to the build.

More DPS; Magic Weapon - Force Weapon
Swap Domination for Unstable Anomaly or Unwavering Will.

Hardcore: need to test some more.

Video is recorded on 3rd run ever, have to work on Orb stacks. Now playing St. Archews version instead.
