Build Summary

Herald of Agony has usually been a low-maintenance, high harm skill that demands little passive tree investment to complete great harm. Despite many nerfs, it is still one of several most trusted skills within the game, and I genuinely think this is nevertheless the case post 3.10 nerf. By utilizing a power like ball lightning that hits lots of times in addition to a jewel-like golden rule to double the number of poison applications, we build virulence stacks exceptionally swiftly, which spawns our invulnerable crawler to do damage.

Build Description

Herald of Agony has usually been a low-maintenance, high harm skill that demands little passive tree investment to complete great harm. Despite many nerfs, it is still one of several most trusted skills within the game, and I genuinely think this is nevertheless the case post 3.10 nerf. By utilizing a power like ball lightning that hits lots of times in addition to a jewel-like golden rule to double the number of poison applications, we build virulence stacks exceptionally swiftly, which spawns our invulnerable crawler to do damage.

Mana Guardian has continuously been on the list of most influential defensive classes within the game, and I genuinely believe that is nevertheless the case post 3.10 nerf. By reserving our mana, we still have a lot more power shield than every person else. Thanks to the Memory Vault helmet, we've got enormous armor for 80% physical harm reduction, and it also enables us to pop massive molten shell. Vaal molten shell's which make us practically invulnerable outdoors of their short cooldowns. We also have a pretty high block chance.

Lastly, by adding four Spectres to this build, we are obtaining 25% Much more damage because of feeding frenzy buff for our crawler and onslaught bonus from ascendancy. Additionally, the tank for us with a meat shield! Please see the Spectres section.

Immunity to chaos harm, ignite, shock, chill and frozen effects
It truly is as superior to a defensive resume since it gets. Greatest of all? You use ball lightning so you could cast in the full-screen variety, so you don't ought to face verify things like corpse explosion from a sturdy box on a map with substantial damage mods.
Fullscreen clear with Herald of Agony pierce, and you clear quickly for such a defensive build! Herald of Agony is also invulnerable, so you don't ever be concerned about points like harm reflect or zombie dying in deep delve. Ultra-luxury gear with level 31 Herald of Agony can pull of level 8 Sirus in just over 2.five minutes, Uber Elder in only over two minutes, that is leading tier harm. Substantial damage mods.

Pros:
+ Moderate upfront cost with the first set of unique items scales exceptionally well with end game gear if you want to spend more currencies.
+ One of, if not the tankiest builds in the game:
+ 10K energy shield with discipline, 20K armor (40K when we flask), three endurance charges after you get hit, this is without the expensive clarity watcher's eye which takes you to 13K energy shield
+ 4K molten shell / 12K Vaal molten shell (8K and 24K when we flask)
+ 500 energy shield regenerated every second, 3000 energy shield regenerated every 5 seconds
+ 48/16% block chance without flaking, 75%/36% block chance when we flask
+ Four tanks with 175,000 health each as your indestructible front line!

Cons:
- Somewhere between 1000-1500 delve level, defense no longer matters. Builds like deadeye ice shot perform well with "kill them before they ever touch you" mentality and a much higher skill ceiling in the hands of players who can take out Aul without getting hit a single time.
- Unblockable attacks, especially massive ground damage, can still kill you.
- You are playing an old bald man; perhaps this is why guardian has never been super popular compared to more refreshing classes.
- This is not an SSF build like Lacerate Gladiator, easily the best budget build in the game, tanks as good or better than us at lower budgets, and you can craft everything. The upfront investment and particular gear pieces are needed.

Ascendancy:


1) Radiant Faith - what makes this build work, gives you massive energy shield from mana reservation.
2) Radiant Crusade
3) Unwavering Crusade
4) Time of Need OR Bastion of Hope
Stun immunity and 20% spell block vs. high (albeit slightly random) recovery. You can't go wrong with either one.

Pantheon:
Major:
Soul of Brine King, protection against stun locks
OR
Soul of Lunaris, protection against chain damage

Minor:
Soul of Tukohama If you enjoy stationary face tanking as I do.
OR
Soul of Garukhan Extra movement speed for mapping.
