POE 3.8 Summon Stone Golem Elementalist Beginner's Build

By u4npoe - Views: (269) - Sep,21,2019

Build Summary

Incredible buffs to this build. Big buffs to our lightning/stone/chaos golems' damage. Massive buffs to golem effectiveness, life regen, Phy's dmg reduction, attack/cast speed, etc. Debating the effectiveness of adding the new golem. Vis Mortis now is a much higher damage chest option but would lose tons of ES. Honestly, so many summoners change that I might need to rewrite most, if not all of this guide. This might be a challenge as I am planning on necro mass summoner for this league.

PROS & CONS:
+ Very good damage with the right gear
+ Very low maintenance, pets almost never die
+ With new changes to minion nodes, hybrid summoner + pet dps variations possible
+ Easy to change to an ice golem build.
+ Multiple layers of defense
+ Dual Clayshapers for early leveling are really cheap
- Min-maxing is expensive
- High initial investment cost with Anima stone and primordial gems
- The trade-off for highest DPS variation is much less energy shield
- Hit hard by ES nerf
- Difficult to cap resists without expensive rares
- Getting 4 red sockets on an INT chest can be hard
- May not be "busy" enough for you, if you like that kind of thing
- Remembering to use your flasks and spirit offering all the time


ASCENDANCY:


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