[3.4] EQ / Sunder Juggernaut - Uber Lab / Guardians - League Starter / Budget - with Videos

Hello Everyone!

This build is a solid league starter. It is able to progress into red maps and farm the Uber (Eternal) Labyrinth on a tight budget. Below is the setup that I am running for farming Uber Lab and Guardians. Instead of Atziri's Disfavour you can use any two handed axe, but it is a big upgrade in terms of damage.

3.4 changes:
Spoiler
Sunder:
- Base range reduced by 20% at all levels.
- Base explosion radius reduced to 15 (from 16) at all levels. Radius now grows more slowly, gaining +1 to radius 1 gem level later than previously.

70 points: www.poeurl.com/b3l5
Level 84 tree: www.poeurl.com/b3l9
Level 93 tree: www.poeurl.com/b3mc

94+: whatever you prefer: regen / armour / socket / attack speed / ...

Notes: You may level with 1h axes till 58 (personal preference); buy Kaom's Primacy at 58; if you have mana leech on any item / jewel, you can take Hematophagy instead of Vitality Void

Links:

Either
6L Sunder: Sunder + Conc + Melee Phys + Multistrike + Fortify + Maim
or
6L EQ: EQ + Less Dur + Fortify + Conc/AoE + Melee Phys + Maim

6L: Warchief + Melee Phys + Faster Attacks + Conc + Bloodlust + Maim

4L: Leap + Faster Attacks + Blood Magic + Culling Strike or Fortify

3L: CWDT lvl 1 + Enfeeble lvl 5 + Blood Rage lvl 7 (also concider Blood Rage when optimizing EQ attack time and duration)

1L: Enduring Cry, Hatred, Herald of Ash and/or Arctic Armour

Notes: EQ requires certain items / optimization in order to perform well. You may use Ruthless instead of Fortify. Link Leap + Fortify if you don't use Fortify in your main attack setup.

Gear breakdown:
Spoiler

Helmet:

- Starkonja's Head: 10% attack speed, up to 100 life
- Devoto's Devotion: 16% attack speed, no life
- Rare helmet: high life, resists
- Abyssus: a lot of flat phys dmg, BUT 40-50% increased phys dmg taken! => may get you killed... I do only recommend using Abyssus, if you're playing a build which is able to 1-shot Izaro / bosses. Abyssus doesn't provide any life either.
- Enchant: 15% Sunder attack speed or 40% Sunder damage or "Blood Rage grants additional 12% Attack Speed"

Armour:

- Rare body armour with high armour, life, resists (I recommend 2k+, but 1700ish will work in the beginning too)
- Craiceann's Carapace (Probably not available in future Leagues): high armour, life, resists
- The Brass Dome: very high armour, but no life, no resists; expensive at league start

Belt:

- Belt of the Deceiver: life, resists, phys dmg AND intimidates nearby enemies: https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Intimidate; !!! +1 max endu charges IS NOT AVAILABLE on belts anymore !!!
- Perseverance: life, resists AND "You have Onslaught while you have Fortify": https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Onslaught

Gloves:

- Rare gloves: life, resists, attack speed, flat phys dmg; recommended crafting base: spiked gloves
- Tombfist: attack speed, life, 1-2 abyssal sockets: life, resists, flat dmg, attack speed AND intimidates enemies on hit if you're using a murderous eye jewel: https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Intimidate

Boots:

- Rare boots: life, resists, movement speed
- Death's Door: some res, cannot be inflicted with bleeding, +1 endu charge; I prefer rare boots because of life and resists - another endu / bleeding... is not needed.
- Enchant: % life regen or % attack speed (personal preference)

Amulet:

- I prefer Bloodgrip for Lab, Carnage Heart for Guardians, Bisco's for mapping; If you're low on chaos, get Bloodgrip
- Rare amulet: life, resists, flat phys dmg, IIQ if shaped (requires a certain ilvl)

Rings:

- Rare rings: life, resists, flat phys dmg
- Kaom's Way: +1 endu, regen per endu - decent choice, but not really needed

Weapon:

- Main hand: high pdps two-handed axe; get Kaom's Primacy at 58, Disfavour as soon as you can afford it
- Weapon swap: Brightbeak + Prismatic Eclipse (3 green sockets) for faster leaping
- Dual wielding: high pdps axe (Soul Taker will be fine in the beginning) + stat stick (60%+ of phys dmg as extra ... dmg)

Jewels:

- attack speed, dmg, life if you can afford it

3.0 Harbinger League gear:

Bandits:

Help Oak

Ascendancy:


Lab: Unflinching, Unbreakable, Unstoppable, Unrelenting

Mapping: you may take Unyielding instead of Unrelenting or Unbreakable or Unstoppable (kinda depends on map tier / map mods / gear / personal preference)
Note: Unyielding is ~5% more dmg (8 endu -> 40% inc dmg -> results in ~5% more dps)

Pantheon:


Farming maps: Gruthkul, Lunaris
Farming guardians: Tukohama, Solaris

Flasks:


Atziri's Promise, Lion's Roar, instant heal (+ bleed removal), another instant heal (+increased armour during flask effect), basalt (+freeze removal)

Jewels:

24+ Damage from:
- Melee Damage
- Physical Damage
- Physical Damage with Axes
- Physical Damage with Two-Handed Melee Weapons
- Area Damage
6+ Attack Speed from:
- Attack Speed
- Attack Speed with Axes
- Attack Speed with Two-Handed Melee Weapons
poe.trade: http://poe.trade/search/ahoabokaruzisa

Note: You may lower the numbers... depending on the results / your budget.

Earthquake optimization:

If your attack speed is "too high" you will only get the aftershock every second attack. Adjust your attack speed and skill duration to have a shorter skill duration than attack time. To achieve this, I'm using:
- 30% less EQ duration enchant
- 20% quality Less Duration gem
- Warped Timepiece amulet

Dual wielding:

DW setup which has similar dps to the Disfavour setup:

- 370+ pdps one handed axe: http://poe.trade/search/enisikukonooto
- 60%+ phys as extra ... dmg stat stick: http://poe.trade/search/oreyonamakehek

Soul Taker + stat stick will be fine till you can afford an axe with higher pdps.

Level 93 DW tree: www.poeurl.com/bUZu

Hints:

- Aim for 20-21k armour - It's fine to use Determination in the beginning!!!
- Avoid extra elemental damage mods on T15/16 maps
- Avoid poison on hit mod on high tier maps
- Avoid physical reflect mod on all map tiers!!!
- Avoid no leech / no regen mod
- Do NOT use Hatred / Herald of Ash on elemental reflect maps
- Ensure to keep up 8 Endurance Charges and Fortify when fighting high tier bosses

Hey, build look nice. Im gonna start leveling this today. What u think about going with maces? Seems like 450 pdps maces are much cheaper than same pdps axes. I can't afford Atziri axe now. I have 85 lvl RF zerker without kaoms but I don't like it as lab farmer, pretty easy to kill him for traps and argus.

Also what do think about carrying ppl in uberlab with this build? Is damage high enough?

This will be tree for maces, what do u think? :

Get
and use Hatred + Determination. That's fine for Uber Lab and even Minotaur (I did about 30 Mino kills like that - on 5L!).

Thanks for linking it. Skill the bleeding nodes in the end - get everything else before that!
Hey im running this build im at lvl 72 so far and its working well i just have a few questions:


How important is the golem in this build? Instead of a golem i'm using an extra curse on cwdt since the golem dies so fast.

Is this build high enough dps for endgame such as shaper without a really expensive axe or would it be best to run a crit variant to do shaper?

Golem is just nice to have, but it's also fine to play without one. For T16 Phoenix I switch Golem to Purity of Fire. It's also possible to use Golem in a CWDT setup, but don't bother too much. This build is NOT a Shaper farmer ;)
I got yesterday cheap 5 link brass dome for 20 c, gonna try with that.



Gonna chance Unstoppable to Unbreakable later when I can use devoto devotion and get art of the gladiator. I thought that Juggernaut Unstoppable gonna help for Brass dome reduced movement speed but not.

What you suggest for fast mapping setup to level up to 80? Or which lvl did u start ulab?

Did yesterday a1-a10 end (not killed kitava yet) in 5 hours with all bosses and 3 labs :) Merc lab done at lvl 61. Build feels good.

do you think you'll have enough damage to kill shaper once for the league challenges?
