Arcanist Brand Build Guide

Arcanist Brand Arcanist Brand is a new Brand skill and supports all triggerable spells associated with it. Every time the Brand is activated, it triggers a supported spell, allowing you to build your own Brand setup, possibly triggering multiple different spells in succession.

Since Brand mechanics naturally has a strong ability to clear, the supported skills have less area, projectile range, and chain range. Triggering a spell deals damage penalty to balance its ability to activate multiple times. Triggered spells also deal more damage to branded enemies.

Projectiles hit the branded enemy, but each activation targets another nearby enemy, so they often use Pierce, Chain, and Fork effects.

Arcanist Brand Arcanist Brand’s duration is shorter than that of other Brands, so you won’t use it in any build to passively trigger effects, but it will be very powerful for Brands build. As with other brands, Cast Speed affects the activation rate, so it benefits from most spellcaster investments.

After you place Arcanist Brand Arcanist Brand on the ground, it will attach to an enemy and trigger any spells linked to this skill in a sequence. It works in a similar fashion to a few popular existing mechanisms like Poet’s Pen and other trigger skills. This one is basically a “build your own brand” thing. You basically put any other skill gems wherever you want, and it will use these spells. This opens a huge range of options for player’s builds, letting you use almost any spell as if it was a Brand.
