Build Summary

Poe Cluster Jewels are a new way of modifying the skill tree. They are a better version of the Historic Jewels. Instead of relying on RNG to get the desired mods, you can now use crafting. This opens up a vast array of possibilities. As you can see, there are a lot of them that can be useful to us. Don't forget, though, that getting those nodes requires skill points, so you will have to remove them from other nodes. For now, This Build not going to modify the skill tree.

Build Skill Tree

Build Description

Poe Cluster Jewels are a new way of modifying the skill tree. They are a better version of the Historic Jewels. Instead of relying on RNG to get the desired mods, you can now use crafting. This opens up a vast array of possibilities. As you can see, there are a lot of them that can be useful to us. Don't forget, though, that getting those nodes requires skill points, so you will have to remove them from other nodes. For now, This Build not going to modify the skill tree. You can quickly grab the outer socket next to Ambidexterity if you want to add a real cluster jewel and see what that does for you. The possibilities are so many that it's hard for me to recommend a specific one at this time. We will need to wait and see what works best. As an essential and sophisticated new addition to the game, Cluster Jewels will take some getting used to before they are incorporated into the majority of builds.

Patch 3.10 brings with it no changes to the Build. After reading the spot, We could only find a few minor things that influence us.
1. Precision: Now grants 20% increased Critical Strike Chance to you and nearby allies at gem level 1 (from 40%), up to 58% at gem level 20 (from 59%).
2. Corrupting jewels can now grant "Enemies have -2% to Total Physical Damage Reduction against your Hits" as an implicit.
3. Fossils can no longer craft any prefix or suffix mods that cannot be obtained elsewhere. Body Armour: Socketed Attacks have -15 to Mana Cost (now from Warlord's Influence).
No1 reduces our damage slightly. In all fairness 40% crit for 22 mana was too much. I believe precision is still worth it though. No2 could give us a very small damage boost. No3 might make -15 mana armors a bit more challenging to find. Warlord's armour bases are not rare, though, so it shouldn't be essential.

Pros:
- We can easily do all the content in the game, deathless!
- Super tanky forgives mistakes (79% block, high life, Perma fortify)
- Relaxed two-button playstyle (leap, attack), no need to avoid damage
- Instantly switch between single target and clear
- Superb boss killing ability
- Good clear speed
- Relatively cheap, nonmetal gear
- Fast and fun to play, 0.17-sec leap slam
- Does all map mods (including Phys reflect)
- 7K+ life without Belly
- Great league starter
- Accessible to level, all skills available very early
- Not likely to get nerfed (no meta gear or mechanics)

Cons:
- Apparent speed is not as good as half-screen-AoE cyclone Slayer
- Good words can be hard to find

Ascendancy:


Pain forged: Some block chance but mainly needed to get the other nodes.
Violent Retaliation: Great node. Max block, lots of block chance, and damage.
Versatile Combatant: This is what makes the Gladiator unique. No other class can get so much spell block.
Arena Challenger: Good damage booster that works on mobs as well as bosses.

Pantheon:
This Build uses Lunaris and Gruthkul for physical damage reduction. Mobs usually surround us, so it works well almost all the time. You can change it to Solaris for the Shaper fight if you want, but it's so easy it's not worth bothering.
Ryslatha can be useful for the lab if you're having trouble with the traps.
