POE 3.8 Popular Scourge Arrow Ignite Elementalist Build - Friendly, Budget

By u4npoe - Views: (352) - Sep,07,2019

Build Summary

In Path of Exile 3.8, Elementalist also got some love with some numerical buffs and QoL improvements. So this is scourge arrow elementalist build of my first. This should be the best iteration of the build so far, damage and smoothness wise. The build also dodged the Mana sustain nerfs.

Build Description

INTRO:
In Path of Exile 3.8, Elementalist also got some love with some numerical buffs and QoL improvements. So this is scourge arrow elementalist build of my first. This should be the best iteration of the build so far, damage and smoothness wise. The build also dodged the Mana sustain nerfs.

I don't know if Build of the Week is still running this League but I would love to see one of my build featured in an episode one day, and out of all that I made, I think this one is the most inventive and original. I'm not sure if it's worthy of an episode or not, but that would be the peak of my PoE experience!


PROS & CONS:
+ Very fast clear speed.
+ Strong off-meta Skill.
+ Strong off-Meta Ascendancy .
+ Good damage on end-bosses for an ignite build.
+ Completely functional at level 60 and doesn't require Uber Lab to do so.
+ Cheap to start and scale well the more money you invest.
+ Viable for 95% of the content.
+ Party play friendly thanks to the Shock from the Elementalist
+ Meme bonus points for playing a Chaos skill with Ignite.
Cons:
- Squishy on a full damage setup, not really HC viable.
- Some pieces can be hard to obtain in the first few days of the league.
- Can be heavy on Uniques, but the recommended uniques have a lot of resistances so capping is not a problem.
- Scourge Arrow is a Channeling Skill so the gameplay can be disliked by some.


ASCENDANCY:


1. Shaper of Desolation
2. Beacon of Ruin
3. Liege of the Primordial
4. Elemancer


BANDITS:
Kill all, +2 Skill Points
The build doesn't benefits from the bonuses offered by the bandits.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Arakaali/Sou of Brine King/Soul of Lunaris
Minor God - Soul of Ryslatha
