[3.12] Gannicus, God of the Arena – Deathless Uber Elder for Everyone

Has anyone played this in Heist and doing red maps/end game? How is it holding up?
I'm doing heists and red maps without problem 90% of the time (spell and attack block is godly). Even with cheap not so great gear:



The most expensive one was 6-link armour and gloves. So yeah, this build is fun, tanky and has damage. The more you quality your gem and stack phys to attack, the more you feel stronger. And I have my items at expense of armour, so I don't really have a nice phys reduction. Only flasks keep it at decent 50%.

I have a question about swords as I am not a great crafter. Can I craft my swords with fossils? If so, which ones? Crafting with annuls and craft bench is too expensive for me now.
Been doing some red maps but have been struggling with damage. Any tips on how I could improve it?

If you don't want block swords (got to craft block on your armour then) you can use fossils. If you want block I'm not so sure. You need to check with craftofexile (great site if you don't know it).

The tip is to follow the guide and not do random things. Taste of hate with brutality??? No diamond? Dredbeak? No block on swords or armour?
I mean if you're not going to do any of the things I say in the guide what's the point?

1. Taste of hate was being used because I had it in a previous build and it provides some defence.

2. The Dreadbeak had decent dps (350). I am new to melee builds but from what I understand from your guide is that dps of the weapon is the most important thing.

3. Just to make sure, that pair of gloves has block right?

4. All in all, thanks for the feedback. I will make sure I use a diamond flask, and swap out the weapon. I apologize if I have annoyed you.

:D



is this better? still struggling with dmg (or maybe im just used to squishy multimillion dps characters :P)

No point in using a ToH just for defense when you can use a basalt and get a free suffix.

You had no block on your swords or armour. The gloves give you about half of what you'd get from them. A Scaeva is practically free. No point in not using it. Block is essential for this build.

I think we can agree that asking for my advice while not following my guide is pointless.
As for damage, obviously you can't compare a million DPS glass canon build that dies if a white mobs even looks at it with a tanky melee boss killer.
Having said that, your gear has a lot of room for improvement. I mean you don't even have leveled gems yet.
I suggest you read the guide carefully and try to follow it. You're still using war banner...

Thank you for the build.
I haven't failed a heist since I made this char.

What are good alternate gems for the build?
I guess divergent pride is one of them.
I've been meaning to look into that but I haven't had the time. I just looked at BS and all versions seem pointless to me. Guess I'll try to do it tomorrow.
Glad you're enjoying this.

Hi i'm relatively new to the game and have just casually been playing since last league, farthest I got is fighting conquerors. Currently i'm enjoying your build and wanted to ask a few things:

1. I see 3 nodes related to Impale on PoB but I am not using impale support + dread banner and am instead using ruthless support, do I still get those nodes? If no, then what nodes should I get instead?

2. I see there is some added fire damage on the end game swords and was wondering is this was just for extra damage or we have a node/skill somewhere that benefits from it?

Here is my current gear, I know it's laughable but i'm trying to follow the guide as best I can and just want to know whats the gear priority where to allocate my funds first (i'm currently aiming to get a 6-link belly of the beast, but after that i'm not too sure)



I'm hoping to work my way to get the most out of this build, thanks for the awesome guide!
why my build do so less dmg
