You can even keep it in the inventory to prebuff if you really want to min max.
Better than max roll Empyrian Glory on each hand? Req level 50 leaves a lot of room for MO's.
Yup it was what carried me through my first Xazax kill (kite the mobs in circles around Xazax hitting DA off cooldown, he passively dies). Worked well for Astrogha too.
Elemental band gives Hive which adds 25% to energy which adds tons of damage to Divine Apparition and Symphony. The other buffs also add 25% to other base stats which all synergizes extremely well with Stormlord. To farm, I kamikaze into packs of mobs and they all rot away and die before the cooldown is up to DA again.
So that, plus the lightning buff stuns mobs.
Keep in mind, UHM gets -200 to all elements for free, so all the buffs are doing triple the damage of the tooltips.
You get 10% spell dam from the ring itself.
I would go so far to say that it's the single best item for UHM for a spell damage based build.
Like you suggested, if you have a godly roll ring with a low level and you throw UMO's at it, maybe it's better in some situations. In those situations, it's still great for a pre-buff
