Build Description

INTRO:
This build is designed to become pretty well-rounded. It has good clear, good survivability, and actually robust single target. The Agony Crawler can be a really fascinating minion coming from the gem Herald of Agony. It follows you about and has three attacks: 1 melee attack, which can be essentially never utilized, one projectile attack comparable to split arrow, in addition to a barrage of explosive projectiles. It was designed to have decent damage devoid of requiring investment in any minion nodes, so due to the fact this make is focused on it and hence requires minion nodes, it yields an amazingly sturdy and fast little guy.

This build relies on the Agony Crawler, from Herald of Agony, to cope with the damage. In order for it to appear and to handle damage, we must apply poisons on enemies. You will discover various approaches to accomplish so; as an illustration, another create uses Molten Strike. I chose to work with Rain of Arrows, for various causes. 1st, it hits a lot of enemies and makes it possible for us to become at 40 virulence stacks, the maximum, just about permanently. It could also hit bosses various times, which suggests it could be utilized to sustain Virulence against bosses. Ultimately, Rain of Arrows is utilised to apply 3 curses, plus the reality that it can hit complete packs with no the require of some piercing is vital.


PROS & CONS:
+ Good clear
+ Good single target
+ Great survivability, with over 10K ES, three curses, and very quick start of ES recharge
+ Cheap to get started - all required uniques are cheap, and ES gear is on average cheaper than their life counterpart
+ Can do all map mods
+ No need to worry about resummoning your minion, he's invulnerable to damage and summons/unsummons itself
+ Fun to play
+ Can take everything down up to Shaper without heavy investment, and can take down Uber Elder with some further investment
+/- It's a minion build, which feels clunky to some people and relaxing to some others
- The Agony Crawler doesn't have a perfect AI, and will sometimes get stuck behind walls, altough this can be solved by having a Convocation gem
- Requires one six-link for HoA, and one for sustaining poison - you can play with a five-link for your poison setup, but you'll only have two curses
- Off-colours can be hard to get on chest


ASCENDANCY:


1. Void Beacon
2. Vile Bastion
3. Profane Bloom
4. Malediction


BANDITS:
Kill them all. Easy choice: the only bandit worth helping on some builds is Alira, and since we do not profit from the crit multi, the two skill points are what we go for.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Arakaali
Minor God - Soul of the Brine King
