POE 3.10 Guardian Build - Herald of Agony Mana Budget, Cheap/Friendly/Fast

Build Summary

This thread is a building plan that's going to turn into a build guide if all goes to plan. It is untested and purely theorycrafting. Herald of Agony Mana Guardian is definitely one of the tankiest builds in the game, but one of the most expensive too. It is one of these “elusive” builds that you always wanted to try but never had the currency for it.

Build Description

INTRO:

This thread is a building plan that's going to turn into a build guide if all goes to plan. It is untested and purely theorycrafting. Herald of Agony Mana Guardian is definitely one of the tankiest builds in the game, but one of the most expensive too. It is one of these “elusive” builds that you always wanted to try but never had the currency for it. 

When you deal poison damage you summon Agony Crawler from the Herald of Agony. By constantly dealing with poison damage you ramp up Virulence stacks thus buffing your crawler to the max. You, on the other hand, is a tanky walking buff for your Crawler, so your only purpose is to keep stacks high and survive.

There are 2 main skills that can keep stacks high: Ball Lightning is great for general purpose mopping. You just throw a ball and run through enemies. Storm Burst is overall much better for bosses as it’s a precise channeling skill, and you can stand quite far away and still get stacks.  Other cool skills for fast trash clearing: Storm Brand, Orb of Storms. They all suck for bosses though. They also stack withered stacks through withering touch as well as constantly provide feeding frenzy buff. If you can’t get them for now, get Undying Evangelists and Diabloists, but you will have to give them meat shield support and attach feeding frenzy to Golem.

 

PROS & CONS:

+ Super tanky, practically unkillable character (by 99% of content)

+ 40000 armour, 20-30K es

+ Great for everything, mapping, bossing, Delving

- Can be very, very expensive on the “higher end”

- Can be stunned to death in some rare situations

- Bossing damage is very low in “cheap” variants

 

ASCENDANCY:

Radiant Faith -> Radiant Crusade -> Unwavering Crusader -> Harmony of Purpose

 

BANDITS:

Kill all.

 

PANTHEON:

Major God - Soul of Arakaali/Brine King

Minor God - Soul of Tukohama
