POE 3.8 Bladestorm + Perforate Champion Build - All Content Budget Guide

By u4npoe - Views: (207) - Sep,27,2019

Build Summary

In POE 3.8 changes are almost negligible to the build, only tempered flesh is affected because the Strength cluster nodes have been moved away from its range. Brutal restraints will be harder to obtain. Simple, Champion has +2 maximum impale on enemies, more added Phys damage based on the number of impaling stacks on the enemy. Banner reservation requires no mana, which allows us to run all the auras required. Pulverise got nerfed in terms of aoe, but gives a higher damage multiplier, this increases dps by roughly 20% but reduces aoe by around 25-30%.

Build Description

INTRO:
In POE 3.8 changes are almost negligible to the build, only tempered flesh is affected because the Strength cluster nodes have been moved away from its range. Brutal restraints will be harder to obtain. Simple, Champion has +2 maximum impale on enemies, more added Phys damage based on the number of impaling stacks on the enemy. Banner reservation requires no mana, which allows us to run all the auras required. Pulverise got nerfed in terms of aoe, but gives a higher damage multiplier, this increases dps by roughly 20% but reduces aoe by around 25-30%. Multistrike support buffed, the initial hit is stronger, but the overall dps with 3 repeated strikes is almost the same


PROS & CONS:
+ Has a budget version
+ Crits, lots of satisfing crits and screen shaking
+ Hit and run playstyle for dangerous legion release
+ 4M-5M dps if you are able to use 2 6link for both perforate and bladestorm
+ Using cool new skills
+ All map mods except phys reflect and no leech
+ Not a cyclone build
+ Not alot of mandatory equipments required
+ Budget version is strong enough to clear all content
- Min maxing can be costly(watcher's eye and multimodded wep)
- Definitely not HC friendly
- Requires Blood/sand stance dancing to maximise single target damage
- Does not instant explode legion mobs, probably have to jump around and tag key targets
- Can be super tough to calculate true dps, because we use impale and brutal restraint in the build


ASCENDANCY:


1. Unstoppable Hero
2. Inspirational
3. Master of Metal
4. First to Strike


BANDITS:
Help Alira, more resist, crit multi and mana regen is good enough for 2 points.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Solaris
Minor God - Soul of Lunaris
