Mathil loves this build as well, and he played it three times, but i had a totally different vision for that since the very beginning. First of all i wanted to utilize insane Elder 8L staff i had, beef up the neglected Frostbolt (my very first ever build was Frostbolt back in 2017! Gotta pay the dues!), and go CI ES TANK as well, with ES spell leech.
All these ideas are combined and reflected in this build you see. I successfully killed all content deathless, so i guess it kinda worked!
Just let them kill themselves! No need to press anything, not even the flasks! This is probably the craziest build i’ve done during the Legion. Expected to be a meme, but turned out to be super strong against everything. Reckoning has been there for a while, but it has never been as strong as it is now, with all melee and accuracy as well as flat damage buffs. COUNTERATTACKS KILLING THINGS AND NOT A MEME ANYMORE 😉
Build: https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2611619 Lightning Arrow was always a popular choice for levelling, but rarely was it used in the end-game. I kind of fell in love with LA during my Kinetic Blast levelling process (went from level 1 to 85 on LA) and decided i am gonna min-max it and push through Uber Elder and all content to see where “borders” are.
Kinetic Blast has been nerfed twice. First time in 3.4 when it got less area damage and explosions were changed to prevent shotgunning near walls. And then in 3.7 when abyssal jewels were all lowered down by at least 30%. So what’s the state of KB Wanders now? I must say i devled quite deep into the build to answer the question. And the short answer is: still viable. Still doing the job. Still expensive. Still needs barrage for Uber Elder. Still ridiculous aoe which one shots everything offscreen, still insanely fun! The goal of the build was to create a TANKY, HIGH dps character capable to do ALL content, and not just silly currency farming. The basic goal was to achieve at least 1 million shaper dps on KB, but eventually i surpassed it and now sitting on 2 millions KB dps as well as almost 5 million for Barrage.
Just when 3.7 launched i really wanted to play reworked Cleave with Ahn’s Might. Once i started and got to maps though, i quickly faced the reality of SHITTINESS that Cleave is. It’s just bad and reworked threshold jewel does not fix it 🙁 So i’ve started looking for options WHAT ELSE can work with my original plan to use Ahn’s Might and Berserker and stumbled upon Ice Crash and OMG it just perfectly fit! AOE! Great single target! Fantasic eye cancer effects! P E R F E C T! This build is balanced around offense and defense. Berserker in general is very glass cannon, but can be very frustrating to play through rippy League content. Esepecially if you are a new player. So after decent amount of experiments i came to an optimized balanced setup which allows you to sustain most damage while dealing enough damage to destroy pretty much everything.
Before 3.7 even started i’ve been theorycrafting a fresh, strong, 2019 ready SRS league starter, as a tribute to Yoji’s SRS build that i’ve used back in 2.6 to reach level 90 for the first time ever! When 3.7 launched though it all became even better! I was totally surprised by the damage and the smoothness of current SRS. Killed Uber Elder on a 5L in just 3 days at level 88 which is the LOWEST LEVELLED character kill i’ve ever had, and i am not your super “i dodge everything” guy. And i am pretty bad at bossing 🙂
