Build Summary

This build is creating off-meta builds capable of reaching the endgame. In Poe 3.8 Blight league Update: Huge Ignite buffs!

Build Description

INTRO:
This build is creating off-meta builds capable of reaching the endgame. This is my second guide on the forum, you may have seen the Shocking Elementalist I made back in Bestiary League. I hope this new guide will reach the same level of success and would be happy if it could make you want to play Scourge Arrow!

3.8 Blight League Update: Huge Ignite buffs! Elementalist also got some love with some numerical buffs and QoL improvements. This should be the best iteration of the build so far, damage and smoothness wise. The build also dodged the Mana sustain nerfs.


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.
- 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. Beacon of Ruin
2. Elemancer
3. Paragon of Calamity
4. Pendulum of Destruction


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


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