[POE 3.11] Witch Storm Brand Elementalist Bomber-Heralds Friendly Budget Build

By Elementalist - Views: (2524) - Jun,15,2020

Build Summary

Welcome to my Elementalist Storm brand semi-autobomber build in POE 3.11. It is an all-content build viable as a League starter. I have done >100 T16 maps, farmed Uber Elder, and completed other endgame contents without any problem. Lots of interesting cluster passive points that can augment our Heralds damage or golem buffs. No nerfs to elementalist or this build. I will not be using this build as my league starter this league, but this build either the 3.10 version should work just fine.

Build Description

INTRO:
Welcome to my Elementalist Storm brand semi-autobomber build in POE 3.11. It is an all-content build viable as a League starter. I have done >100 T16 maps, farmed Uber Elder, and completed other endgame contents without any problem. Lots of interesting cluster passive points that can augment our Heralds damage or golem buffs. No nerfs to elementalist or this build. I will not be using this build as my league starter this league, but this build either the 3.10 version should work just fine.

We dual wield Shimmerons and use 6 power charges to give both Herald skills and Strom brand +3.6% crit chance and +120% crit multi. To combat the degen from Shimmerons, we use stone golem and scale the heck out of the golem buff effect for being an Elementalists. We use primordial chain, anima stone, and two other primordial jewels to get 9 golems total, and > %500 effect of buff granted by golems. With the ascendancy "Mastermind of Discord," we get a 25% reduced mana reservation for heralds. This means we can use both herald skills without Coming Calamity. The damage is lower, yes, but it is enough to clear T16 maps. Bosses and beefy rares won't die to the heralds. That's alright we also got storm brands. Use brand recall to recast them without having to stop in mapping. This is a semi-autobomber build but not having to stop and cast. For bosses, storm brands melt them, and you have nothing else to do besides dodging/running clockwise, making it quite easy.


PROS & CONS:
+ Budget Friendly
+ Scale well into the end game
+ Fast and satisfying clear
+ 2-3 M Shaper DPS with Storm brand
+ Immune to elemental aliments
+ >30 % physical damage reduction
+ 39 % chance to block spell hits
- Golems die occasionally to Leagion rares/Minotaur. Kill them before they kill you.
- 7-8 K eHP, not the highest, but high phys damage reduction and spell block makes it a pretty beefy build.
- No ele-reflect map
- No regen/60% less recovery map can be annoying but doable with Cinderswallow Urn


ASCENDANCY:


- Liege of the Primordial
- Elemancer
- Pendulum of Destruction
- Mastermind of Discord


BANDITS:
Kill all.


PANTHEON:
Major God: Soul of Lunaris
Minor God: Soul of Shakari


MAIN SKILL:
