Overview

Important: "Allow Skill Retargeting" must be enabled for this build to function.

This build specializes in tagging multiple enemies very quickly. It has relatively low damage, and so is generally inferior to Staff builds for farming large groups of mobs. It excels at farming in extremely fast-paced trains where damage matters less, such as the Mad King's Labyrinth or Lake Doric Leather Farm.

The instant-hit of Arc Lightning creates a very powerful synergy with Sigil of Fire provided you have a little crit chance. Very strong build for tagging.

This build provides tagging potential at a safe distance, allowing the Tempest to earn loot without putting their life at a risk. While overall this build deals poor damage and is underwhelming for solo play, it excels at what it was designed or, tagging mobs in large group events, such as farming Silverwastes, Dragonfall, or the Halloween Labyrinth. However, Tempest itself is overshadowed by other classes with better tagging potential like Mirage or Daredevil.

Strong, reliable farming build with lots of self-buffs and utility when needed. Hitscan AA makes for some lazy tagging. Only slight disadvantage is 900 range. Can advise Arcane Shield for safe Lake Doric farm.
