POE 3.8 Blade Vortex Chieftain, Strength Stacking Budget

By u4npoe - Views: (412) - Sep,28,2019

Build Summary

This build stacks a shit ton of Strength! We utilize 3 unique items that give us crazy bonuses for each point of Strength: So from Geofri's Sanctuary, we get a crazy amount of flat Energy Shield, from Shaper's Touch gloves we get huge %Energy Shield increase and lastly from Doon Cuebiyari we get over 300% Increase Damage boost. We use Blade Vortex as it is a very strong skill that scales with our % Damage Increase and Chieftain Ascendancy nodes. I've also tried Armageddon Brand and it was fun but for me personally was lacking single target damage. Vaal Righteous Fire is used to get some extra damage when finishing bosses.
