"...and they take one and put it on the finger of the right hand, and make it spin round many times, and so they hurl it at their enemies, and if they hit anyone on the arm or leg or neck, it cuts through all." - Duarte Barbosa, A Description of the Coasts of East Africa and Malabar, 1866.
I was initially hesitant to make a guide for this build, but after continuous requests on stream, I decided that I would indeed make one. I will, however, give credit to TriKster's own Lightning Chakram build guide, which I realised after I had already been playing this build for a little while was largely identical to my own. I'm not one to step on another content creators toes, but after a lot of people have been asking me to create my own guide for it, I had to oblige.
After noticing I had 2x 3LPin my stash (still finding the perfect exalt to slam on them), I immediately began to create to a Lightning Chakram build, as I LOVE returning projectiles, let alone when you have the Bladedancers 5 shadows also throwing chakrams that return to you. provide a huge DPS boost with the massive throwing crit multiplier, and extra shuriken projectiles (which add more damage with ). It still has a long way to go, but I am very happy with how powerful the build is in its current form and I intend to continue updating as the build gets closer to perfection.
The build is entirely possible without 2via the use of either or on your helm/chest. We zoom around nice and fast with this build and rely on a lot of self healing and the principle of "the best defence is a good offense" to stay alive. My own resists are not nearly capped and I only have 1600hp, but so far we're happily cruising past 350~ corruption and still climbing, that's just how potent the damage potential of this build is.
It is absolutely a build I am excited to retry on the Falconer once it releases, and one I recommend to new players eager to try out the Bladedancer mastery due to not requiring any uniques to get going and the ease at which this build can continue to build up power as you accumulate gear and levels, and I hope everyone enjoys this speedy and flashy playstyle as much as I do.
