will you make a starter/low budget version of the hop build?


Yep! Already tested it.

Unfortunately it won't be 100% "starter build" because it needs Coming Calamity, but the price for 6L isn't too bad after week 1: https://poe.ninja/challenge/unique-armours/the-coming-calamity-destroyer-regalia-6l

I still need to think about how to organise build guide on forum because the 3.14 update is already at "this post is more than 50,000 limit". :(

No need 6 link body armour. 5 sockets and 2 links are enough.(cwdt+ic) If you have 6 sockets, add tempest shield for defense and make 3 links.(cwdt+ic+ts)

I watched your video. Nice demonstration of 5L. :)

Sorry if this is answered previously but can any of the variants do 100% Delirious maps comfortably?

I'm struggling with a Carrion Golem Necro and was looking at alternatives.


Are the carrion golems dying a lot?

You might want to try Elementalist because it has auto respawn for golems and +2 golems.

I didn't test it, but I think my HoP build can do it.. Need to change helmet and gem links (and large cluster cluster jewels).

Do you have a POB? I am curious as to if I can adapt that build to Kay's SRS bomber, especially as I have felt very squishy in that build in red maps at level 87 with "okay" gear.

Thanks for the PoB!

Hi Kay, I started summoning for the very first time in Ritual and found your write up very helpful. I enjoyed playing the several different flavors of the build. I ended up with Minion Bomber, as that made me feel I was actually doing something instead of just running around!

Two things I wish I had known in advance:

1. The price of Devouring Diadem drops very fast.
2. The builds are somewhat squishy, especially for difficult maps and bosses.

In regards to tankiness, I would be very interested in small modifications to the build that increase tankiness and/or give leeching capabilities to your character. Obviously I can take out some of the gems in the 6L chest for minion bomber and replace with CWDT/Immortal Call/Increased Duration/Tempest Shield, say.

I'd be interested in a more experienced analysis of how to make the build less squishy while maintaining most of its damage.

Sorry about that~ I think it's because my builds are based on my playstyle. I usually build more DPS/less def because I feel the game is easier when everything dies quickly.

To make MB tankier:

swap earendel's embrace to life recovery on block shield (same as pure spectres). use frost wall + second wind on self cast. use this to block monsters/bosses.

Increase block chance. trigger wand gems: desecrate, bone offering, tempest shield.

move profane proxy to right side, socket temporal chains. this will take away shock and give 43% slow effect (12% chill + 31% temp chains).

To help with clearing, you can swap fire penetration to infernal legion for mapping.

Take Mystic Bulwark notable. Maybe take Glancing Blows. I don't really recommend it, but some people like it.


Hope that helps!


ps. immortal call shares cooldown with bone armour, so can't really use it :(

Thanks for the help, Kay. I had no idea Bone Armour shared the IC cooldown.

Understood about everything dying quickly. My previous play has been with Whispering Ice, so I am very used to running into mob packs, maximizing leech, and taking them out. It's a hard lesson to unlearn, and your suggestions will make the transition easier. Thanks again!

--------------

Looking at your suggestions in detail, losing Earendel's Embrace means that my skeletons will no longer explode; on the other hand, they stick around and do some dps. I am guessing that since I focused on minion life, removing Earendel might be a bit too much of a dps loss. Time to see if PoB 2.0 handles Minion Bomber DPS correctly!

Ultimatum monsters are new types and spectre-able according to Mr Rackham.

In the clips I saw a lot of apes and some frenzy charges on monsters so possibly cc replacement with better health? Could just be a mod though. Either way pretty hyped for the data.

CC with more life will be so good for everyone!

New skills do phys dot (bleed?) so maybe new monsters will have a bleed attack? Scaling bleed spectre would be interesting!
