Elementalism+Blood Magic DPS
Does anyone uses elementalism+blood magic for DPS?
Share your experience.
Ele/Blood is what I currently use most of the time.
I am not sure how its going to be after 1.2 when Blaze is getting toned down. (rightfully so)
Right now my rotation is
Ignition x 5
Blaze x 1 Bloodshot x 2
Ignition x 1
Blaze x 1 Bloodshot x 1
rinse repeat ( this rotation allows me to not waste any consumer combo points)
Another way is use your blood to power bloodshot but I personally dont do it often.
I bring Blood for one main reason, decent dps and Ranged Impair.
Left hand of darkness although clunky (imho) is nice and if you dont mind
dropping Do or Die... Cardiac Arrest is an amazing interupt.
My Actives are
Utility (Purge/Impair/Slight of hand/Anima Charge)
Do or Die
Lethality ( I run Fever pitch so it stays up almost 100%)
Twist the Knife
Utility - either bloodsport/12 Gauge/Punisher/Live Wire if no utility is needed.
Hope this helps

Many thanks for your reply. How do I open these skills - testing.

There are other DPS rotations from other weapons that will yield slightly more damage than Bloodlines > Bloodshot + X, but very very few that will offer the range and full moblilty of Bloodlines > Bloodshot + X.
Try it; you'll like it.
BTW the trick to making Bloodlines + Bloodshot really sing is to also use Blade's Finish the Movement.

Even with the need, keep Blaze. It's still powerful. Also, I use a similar build to the first response except I use Ignition x5, Blaze, Lightning Manifestation, Bloodshot

Personally I like elemental/blood for AOE duties and for the self building of resources. Ranged weapons are just rough in certain parts of darkness war because they build resources on target, and those targets teleport away or die really fast. Typically I keep bloodshot and blaze/adeilon for boss burning and then use either infection and electrical storm or guts and glory and lightning manifestation for AOE needs.
