    Default [4.0] "The Aftershocker"

    AS OF 4.1 THIS SPEC IS DEAD PLEASE DO NOT USE


    "The Aftershocker" is pretty simple and propeller hatty in that it doesnt require much buttons at all. It primarily uses the stacked legendaries of Aftershock to make it a spammable hard hitting ability.



    The build:


    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#!0mGyyA2/Rkaw8/!3

    Legendaries: Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent, Font of Savagery, Tectonic Spike, Fury Blast, Scald

    Masteries: Primordial Strength, Steadfast Rejuvenation, Ursine Tenacity, Elemental Affinity, Savage Blow

    Edit: 12/15/16 Use Savage Blow as mastery and keep it up 100%, its super buff

    Buffs:
    -Legendary Font of Savagery
    -Zephyr

    Legendary Tectonic Spike: The silly thing about this legendary is you get the Aftershock Bonuses' without having to cast it, you just have to invest the legendary point and boom, strong aftershocks


    Rotation:
    -Go into another spec and get to full fury( I find preserver great for it)
    - Precision Bolt Pre-pull > Fury Blast > Tectonic Spike (To get stacks of tremor going)> Avatar > Scald x2 > Beacon> Aftershock > Lashing Wind
    - At this point you are going to go back and forth with lashing and aftershock except if you:
    - At full Fury do Fury Blast
    - Refresh Precision Bolt and Scald at 0-2 seconds

    Macros

    #show Aftershock
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Aftershock
    cast Lashing Wind

    propeller spam if you choose to use it

    #show Summon: Beacon of the Drake
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @gtae Summon: Beacon of the Drake

    and good ol' beacon macro


    Other Abilities:
    - Squall
    -Fury Blast
    -Scald
    -Precision Bolt
    -Savage Twister
    -Wind Serpent Avatar
    -Scirocco (Interupt)
    -Shifting Winds (Defer Death)

    If you have any questions im Papyrus@Deepwood, first time writing a guide that wasn't on our guild forums so go easy on me haha.

    Side Notes:

    About Molten Wave over Fury Blast:
    - It IS a dps loss, buuuut Molten wave definitely bursts higher than using the fury blast variant, but its overall damage is a little lower, but with multiple enemies MW would be a dps upgrade over fury blast, depends on how much your are cleaving.

    -This spec can be played 100% at range with avatar up, if you happen to die just go into melee and it plays the same (except with cast times on PB and Scald)

    -If you happen to get no crits during the build up phase (it happens not often, but sometimes.) Just throw a tectonic spike to get the tremors going and you should be good from there.

    Kalerts that may be helpful:

    When i tried before also whats new with dervish.. (one of my favourites) with legendaries scald and tectonic seems to me that Aftershoc pop quite a pretty nice numbers but this propeller hyb.SHOCK hat definetlly overcome my expectations man.

    Numbers looks rly delicious, after some practices in rotation, especially after 2nd avatar what could be the best to minimize drop dps i can post this one. i used only legendary Font of Savagery

    STATS status + RiftMeter

    GOOD JOB MAN for exploring somethin new what rly works and will make happy many primalists ,)

    Default question about "get into another spec"

    Hi, as you will see im new at the class. I love to test out the latest guides from the forum and have a lot of fun at it. But i cant understand that "get into another spec" in the pyromancer/aftershocker guides, Can you please explain me what it mean?
    Maybe im stupid but i realy want to know!

    Great work from all the people who write guides, thank you a lot!

    Imagine this, focus bar is like combo points of rogues / attack point (or whatever warriors use),
    Its mostly useful and even necessary to be at full combo points to start a fight,
    Same for primalist, for builds you'd either want to be at full fury or cunning to start.
    So, going another spec means that, switch the spec and use abilities on fluff to change your focus bar.

    Tl;DR
    Its basically that you may want to start the fight on certain amount of fury or cunning, so you have to change to another soul/build to achieve this.


    On these builds you need full fury so go with the first way.
    To get full fury fast: go Vulcanist or berserker and cast their primal avatar to hit full fury.
    To get full cunning: go Dervish or Typhoon and cast their primal avatar to get full cunning.
    Note: if you somehow get in combat before the actual upcoming boss fight, your meter will take 10 seconds then reset so don't let this happen or just dont forget to redo.


    Hope it was helpful :-)

    Beserker has a buff that puts you at full fury. swap into that spec, use the buff, swap back to aftershocker, buff up and let rip. It's an optimal starting position for highest dps or for the best opening rotations.

    Awesome build mate, Primalist supremacy restored

    Just one thing, wouldn't it be wiser to choose Lava Lance over Scirocco for interrupt since it has a greater range?

    U can macro it and even if u have sciroco first and u will be on +20m it takes LL.. if u kicked by sciroco u also debilitate or snare for 4s (ofc bosses are immune)

    I got a few people asking for my stats and a parse/breakdown. So here it is, in my dimension a 67 dummy with no planar buffs/ weapon enchant.

    If you have the same dmg split.
    Your internet connection is also good to get the same swings and you have a good critluck, then it should be possible^^.
    Lets say all of that is given, the biggest problem is imo to get those stats without weaponstones and vials :P

    I am missing not only a little bit and the only thing which can push me is to get the bis essences and the new dungeon weapon.
    Also push the fragments from 9 to 15, but it is too expensive :P

    Hiya, i made a even lazier spec for myself, pullin decent numbers.

    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...8/!3/Rgl8|PYPg

    Legendary skills: font of savagery, tectonic spike and primal avatar wind serpent from dervish tree. Vorpal salvo from vulcanist tree, and scald from maelstrom.

    I use 1 main macro spam, keeping up 2x stacks of legendary scald, and precise aim. It`s a single target spec, no Aoe whatsoever lol.

    Main macro:

    #show Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent
    cast Savage Blow
    cast Aftershock
    cast Vorpal Salvo
    cast Subduction
    cast Tectonic Spike
    cast Seismic Smash
    cast Lashing Wind

    Focus is almost all the time in cunning, therefore using legendary vorpal salvo triple dmg.
    Hope you like this build, first one i ever posted
