[3.5] Ice Golem Golemancer Build 7k - BETRAYAL - BALANCED - ALL CONTENT -Everything Dies-Huge Damage

Ice golem golemancer build - Betrayal league. I did all content (even hogm). Mine build is balanced for Betrayal league. Took me a lot of time/tests to make this happen also u get serious dmg with your golems. So far everybody are happy with mine build and i hope 100% happiness ratio will stay :) I did all in my best to explain everything so u shouldnt have any problems but feel free to pm me.
If you can please showcase your character gear for others to see and learn :) ty!

English isnt my native language so sorry for any mistakes

- Catarina monster lvl 83 (T16) deleted / deathless
- Shaper fight is a joke - deleted
- Uber lab farmer (not fast as deadeye etc but u can do it easly like playing Thicc Jug)
- League starter (YES , im not joking) - i will explain below

PROS :
- SICK DAMAGE ! u can hit 420k+ single ice golem dmg x6 +670k cyclone hit (each 2 seconds) x6 or 500k+ single ice golem dmg x6 + 800k cyclone hit (each 2 seconds) x6 (with vaal skill - look at full dps version pob)

- If you are lazy like me , u can do all content without any problems thats a build for u
- Pure fun
- You will never get bored
- All content (everything deleted)
- lvl 100 is a piece of cake
- Headhunter will make huge smile on ur face :)

CONS:
- Min-Max is VERY EXPENSIVE
- Some people dont like lazy builds (u do nothing, golems delete everything)

League starter ? yes!
I made golemancer as my league starter but u need to do few things:
- Your starter build will be selfcast arc build
- You dont need to buy anything on market , you just pick items from the floor so u can keep currency for your primordial jewels.
- You can easly do 10 acts + start doing maps without buying anything!
- When u get currency for primordial jewels u refund points and u can start playing as a golemancer.Like i said u dont buy anything from market as a arc because u dont need to. You just keep your currency for primordials.
- When i started playing as arc selfcast i bought all primordials and tabula rasa day after league started.

QUESTIONS / EDITS
update : 22.01.2019 (I'll post here answers)
Spoiler

1) Few people asked me about my chest. If u want i can do mirror service.

--------------------------
2) As a budget version you can use Bone Helmet but keep in mind this is armour+es base (which is bad). Get i86 non elder base for +3 minion level. Getting Elder i86 bone helmet is almost impossible also price will be very high

Well yes i know getting +1 , maim , high life , life % is hard and very expensive. Thats why consider this as high end if u rly wanna push ur golemancer to limits. You really dont need this to kill everything around. If you are looking from upgrade from skin of the loyal keep an eye on astral plate with maim , high life (100+) , life % so u can put there ruthless instead of maim gem or +1 , life (100+) , life % chest.
----------------------------
4) changed path of building link + added my lvl 100 char (22.01)

OK. How to start without any currency?

Spoiler
Start playing as selfcast arc build. You dont need to buy anything on market for this build so u can keep currency for your primordials and tabula rasa.
You can switch to golemancer at lvl 40


SICK DAMAGE! 420k+ or 500k+ (with vaal skill) !
Keep in mind thats only dmg from ONE golem :)
Spoiler


------------------------------
------------------------------
with vaal skill version




GOLEMANCER - Lets start!

SKILL TREE 3.5 Betrayal
(We are using 6x Ice Golem(dps) + [(1x Stone + 1x Lightning + 1x Chaos) our buff]


PATH OF BUILDING link for my build

Spoiler

FULL DPS VERSION (500k+ single target hit with vaal skill)(keep in mind u must add dex to your gear but thats not a problem + u can use phase run lvl20 too)
https://pastebin.com/57MKP8rL

Spoiler

My lvl 100 character
https://pastebin.com/1QMx03yx


GEAR (I will go from cheap (number 1) to highend)

Spoiler


HELMET

Look at helmet with only Armour or Hybrid (Armour+Evasion) , dont buy with energy shield or only evasion

1 - means cheap ; 4 - high end

1) Get any rare helmet with life + resistances
2) Get helmet with +1-3 level of socketed minion gems + life + resistances
3) Elder helmet with +1-3 level of socketed minion gems , +x lvl minion life , life , resistances
4) Elder helmet (enchanted) with +3 minion gems , lvl 16-20 minion life , high life , resistances




Those helmets are highend -> you pick Ice Golem 40% dmg for more dmg or Stone golem Buff for big life regen (survi)

Keep an eye on +3 level , minion life -> dont buy other rolls because u dont need them. Minion dmg is useless for us because in helmet we are using "buff" golems and they deal no dmg. Just look at life roll there and resistances.

CHEST

1 - means cheap ; 5 - high end


1 - Tabula Rasa

2 - Any 6L rare chest with 4 red 1 blue 1 green socket
3 - Corrupted Tabula Rasa with +1 lvl socketed gems

4 - Skin of the Loyal (our goal) with 4 red 1 blue 1 green socket
I dont recommend buying Skin Of The Loyal with 2 green or 2 blue sockets. You do that only if its very cheap. I know u can put there FasterAttacks or Conc but you lose Maim! Stick with Tabula +1 will give u way more dmg till u can get 4red 1blue 1green.

5 - Rare Astral Plate


This is my Astral Plate which im using on league and its our high end. We are looking for +1 lvl , maim , life , life % , resistances. Why ? because we dont use anymore Maim gem in our chest but Ruthless! gives us huge dmg boost also mini stun

EDIT : because i had many questions.
Well yes i know getting +1 , maim , high life , life % is hard and very expensive. Thats why consider this as high end if u rly wanna push ur golemancer to limits. You really dont need this to kill everything around. If you are looking upgrade from skin of the loyal keep an eye on astral plate with maim , high life (100+) , life % so u can put there ruthless instead of maim gem or +1 , life (100+) , life % chest.

WEAPON

We get ClayShaper for extra minions life + extra golem


SHIELD

Victarios Charity - huge dmg boost for our golems , free frenzy + power charge


BELT

We have two choices
1) We pick Stygian Vise with life + resistances + mana! (and we get extra room for jewel)
2) We pick Elder Leather Belt with life , life % , +mana!, resistances (gives us around 200 more life compared to Stygian with 50 life jewel roll)

I decided to go with Stygian for an extra jewel slot

My stygian isnt superb , nothing fancy. But keep an eye on high life , resistances and OPEN PREFIX ! this is VERY IMPORTANT (we need crafted mana there for our MOM)

or

Headhunter ! :-) yes my friends we can use headhunter ! Our golems will get all "extra auras" makes this build even more funnier

BOOTS

Keep an eye on Armour boots! or hybrid (Armour + Evasion)
1 - cheap // 3 - high end

1 - any rare boots with life , resistances , movement speed
2 - high life , 30 % movement speed , resistances
3 - Goliath Elder boots with high life , life % , 35% movement speed , resistances

RINGS

1 - Essence Worm with Hatred


2 - Rare ring with high life , resistances and OPEN PREFIX so we can craft there mana + "mom"


AMULET
The Primordial Chain

Get as low rolls there as u can -> low rolls means more dmg , more life for our golems

GLOVES
This is where fun beggins because we dont need Command of The Pit they will be our "jewel keepers only". I will explain why. Since GGG added War Banner our golems got more accuracy = more dmg. Without War Banner with 2 socket Command of The Pit we get 93% hit chance on our golems , if we use rare gloves with War Banner we get 91% hit chance means Command of The Pit gives us small boost, only place to keep more jewels.

This is our choices:

1 - We get rare gloves with life , resistances and open prefix for crafting

As you can see we got here dexterity (so we can have Phase Run lvl 20) and also 20% more minion dmg boost , also we get 4sockets means we can have more gems.
2 - Command of The Pit 1 socket. With War Banner and 1 socket Command of The Pit we get 95% hit chance on our golems (cap)

3- Command of The Pit 2 socket

We got 2 jewels here + 1 in stygian. Keep in mind we already capped 95% hit chance on our golems with 1 socket Command of The Pit so we wont get more dmg with 2 socket only room for extra jewel.



GEMS - links

Spoiler


Helmet - Summon Chaos Golem lvl 20 (lvl 21 high end), Summon Stone Golem lvl 20 (lvl 21 high end), Summon Lightning Golem lvl 20 (lvl 21 high end), Empower lvl 3 (level 4 - high end) "this is our buff helmet" = ALL QUALITY 20% GEMS
Chest - Summon Ice Golem lvl 21 (lvl 20 is fine too but lvl 21 gives us more dmg also got more life) - Minion Damage Support 20 - Maim Support - Melee Physical Dmg - Multistrike - Empower 3 (level 4 gives us big dmg boost!) = ALL QUALITY 20% GEMS
If u get high end Astral Plate with +1 level , maim you swap Maim gem into Ruthless
Weapon - Phase Run (level depends on ur dexterity) - Flame Dash lvl 20 - Incrueased Duration lvl 20 = ALL QUALITY 20% GEMS
Shield - Storm Brand lvl 20 - Curse on Hit lvl 20 - Vulnerability lvl 20 = ALL QUALITY 20% GEMS "Vulnerability = more dmg // Enfeeble = more survi" but i still preffer more dmg :)
Ring - Essence Worm -> Hatred
Boots - War Banner lvl 20 - Generosity lvl 20 - CWDT lvl 1 - Convocation lvl 5 = = ALL QUALITY 20% GEMS or Flesh offering 8 -Convocation 5 - Immortal Call 3 - CWDT 1
Gloves - Depends on what u choose
Rare 4s gloves -> CWDT 1 - Immortal Call 3 - Desecrate lvl 7 - Flesh Offering lvl 8 or CWDT 1 - Immortal Call 3 - Increased Duration lvl 20 - Flesh Offering or (Diff setup depends on what u choose -> 2 extra gems)
Command of The Pit 1 socket - CWDT 1 - Immortal Call 3 - Increased Duration lvl 20 / Flesh Offering lvl 8 or War Banner - Generosity - (u pick 3rd such as vaal haste etc)
Command of The Pit 2 socket -> CWDT 1 - Immortal Call 3 or Generosity + Warbanner
TIP : Flesh Offering gives us ~10% more overall dmg (you can hit ~420k+ meele dmg on single golem x 6)


JEWELS

Spoiler




We are looking for high life , high mana (for our mom) and Blind + Taunt , Hinder is our 3rd jewel (u dont need this but if u want more survi get it)



7 or 8 Primordial of Harmony -> Keep an eye on Golem Dmg 20% also high rolls on both cooldown recovery speed because ice golem second attack is tornado(roll). If u get enough reduced cooldown his skill will be reduced to only 2 seconds (8 = more dmg / use 7 if u want 1 extra jewel (if you are using rare gloves or Command of The Pit 1 socket and u want also jewel with Hinder)
3 x - Primordial Eminance -> Keep an eye on 20% golems attack speed
1 Primordial Might -> Keep an eye on golems life % (rest doesnt matter)
1 -> Anima Stone (your golems will get nuts)


HOW TO PLAY
Spoiler

First we summon 9 golems ( 6x ice golem + 1x stone golem + 1x chaos golem + 1 lightning golem). Use phase run for faster mapping and makes u "invisible". Keep in mind more frenzy charges you have longer phase run u got (ice golems grants us frenzy + power charge because we r using shield and Necromantic Aegis). Flame dash is our next movement skill (we skip obstacles also this is great movement skill to juke nukes such as shaper / uber elder fights). Turn on hatred and war banner (this is our dps boost for golems). Last one is Storm Brand we are using it for cast curse and also trigger Elemental Equilibrium. Since we are using Hatred (golems got extra cold dmg) so Elemental Equalibrium will make -50% cold res on mobs = more dmg for us :)




HELMET ENCHANT / GLOVES / BOOTS

Spoiler

Helmet
You have 2 choices

1 - Ice Golem 40% dmg (gives 5.5% more dmg on melee hit and tornado x 6 - HUGE DMG BOOST)


2 - Stone Golem 150% Buff (huge life regen boost = survi )


Gloves
Commandment of Reflection


Boots
2% Life/Mana regen
dodge spell
dodge attack hits
damage penetrate (works but keep that as ur last choice because we already deal tons of dmg)



BANDITS
Spoiler

KILL ALL


PANTHEON
Spoiler

Lunaris + Gruthul -> mapping , bossing
Lunaris + Yugul -> Uber Elder / Shaper


ASCENDANCY
Spoiler

1) Liege of The Primordial
2) Elemancer
3) Shaper of Desolation
4) Beacon of Ruin (for more dmg) or Paragon of Calamity



HOW TO CALCULATE MOM (EHP)
Spoiler

Its very simple
1000 life means u need 430 unreserved mana (MOM) = 1430 EHP

If u want u can use GHAZZY mom calculator

FLASK

Spoiler




MY GEAR
ATM lvl 100
Spoiler


EHP (life+mom) : 7721 + 114 excess mana
LIFE : 5405
MANA : 2430 Unreserved / 2794 mana






HOGM and other

Spoiler


HOGM -> How to complete HOGM ? Well this is very simple. You cast golems and u are ready. When u will see ur golems are dying u fall back , cast this time 9x ice golem and thats all. The only problem is Demi Queen :) all u need is 4L Scorching Ray and thats all. You summon ur golems , they will focus on Demi and u hit him with 4L Scorching Ray (get any rare helmet and put there).

Uber Elder -> You cast Storm Brand (for EE + curse) and thats all. You use Phase Run + Flame Dash to juke nukes

Uber Atziri -> You cast 9x Ice Golem , few of them will die so u recast them. Very simple and very ez fight

Shaper -> he is just deleted

The build looks great :D I have always wanted to try a golem build but was scared away by the cost to get it going. After watching a streamer on twitch Theuberelite on twitch playing a golem build it looked like a blast then I found your guide :D I was just wondering how would you go about leveling a golem build and when is the best time to switch over to golem. I have a few ex saved up to help get the build started hopefully that will be enough to get it going till I can afford the better gear.

Thank you :) Well "budget" version aint very expensive. You can buy the cheapest primordials on poe trade. Well i started this league as arc selfcast witch and than at lvl 75 i switched to golemancer.


Thats for lvl 70 tree

Spoiler

ofc u can go to the left and skip 2 jewels on the bottom (right side). The full version of the tree u got here.





Here u have my lvl 97 tree

if you have a bit of currency you can get the ball rolling at 34, starting with a primordial chain and 2-3x primordial harmony. heres how i do it:

>level 1-34 with whatever skill is currently op. i started league as arc+ele focus+controlled destruction in a +1 sceptre but if you have currency then 6l herald of agony with quill rain for rain of arrows+poison spam is straight up broken.
>lvl34 you go with flame golem+lmp+minion dmg+ele focus as the base 4l with controlled destruction+minion speed if you have 5/6l. run with all flame golems. you can do lab at this point pretty easily though i grind to the next stage before doing so.
>lvl38 you wanna swap out lmp for gmp and a blue gem (id suggest speed, never minion dmg or ele focus) for echo.
>lvl41 you equip dual clayshapers. run 1x stone golem (from the mace itself, should be higher level than your own stone golem gem) and the rest flame.
>lvl52 you want to drop a clayshaper for victarios charity (making sure youve taken necro aegis first of course)
>other than that its chasing either jewel sockets for more harmony stacking or nodes to boost survival (life/mana)

i run with one stone and the rest flame golems until i have at least 5 harmony and the anima stone socketed, with a primordial might ready to go, which is when ill swap to ice golems.

as for getting the str needed for clayshapers early on, i usually follow pathing similar to this:

https://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/3.5.1/AAAABAMAAAQHBLMRLRzcJbIo-iycMtE1kjwtQYdFR0yzVcZakWD4YoZqrGvbbRl4DXyDfRiCx4Nfg8yD248anr2iAKasqH2qqbXytz64k8Bm0B_T-9i934rpAuvu7Irv6_no_go=

which gives 94 str from tree, and with a careful planning jewel socketed west of witch start, will give more than enough dex for early levelling while you path to the dex nodes. then you can just equip a heavy belt (belt of the deceiver is a nice choice) and benchcraft some str on either rings/gloves/boots to get to 141.

feel free to take mom whenever you feel its necessary. i usually run purity of elements+haste+war banner while levelling so dont take mom until late in the story, if ever.
same story with ele equilibrium, take it when you feel your dmg is dropping but its 1 point so i usually take it after ive gotten 3 harmonies socketed.

been playing golem builds since the primordial jewels were introduced and ice golems are probably the best iteration of it so far with the introduction of the necklace.

hope that helps.
Hey, i can't find your Helmet and Body Armour, how does the mirror service work and how much does it cost.
