[3.12] EARTHSHATTER JUGGERNAUT Build. BEST OF SLAMs. Screen Wide AOE. Cheap League Starter!

Hello guys!
With the Slam Rework which happened before the Harvest league, a new skill appeared and it looked like Earthquake combined with Ground Slam. It’s an EARTHSHATTER.
After some extensive tests i came to the conclusion that it’s literally the best slam skill out there and is easier to scale than Earthquake.
Great AOE, good single target. All on top of already-tanky AF J U G G.
Please welcome. The EarthSlam. The GroundQuake… The EARTHSHATTER.

======================================================================================
How does it work, in general?
1)Your damage directly scales off BASE damage. Base damage = your weapon damage. The higher = the better. Ancestral Warchief scales the same way.
2) The skill itself has two phases: the initial hit and the spikes. Spikes explode when you LEAP SLAM or use WARCRY, delivering massive aoe damage.
3) ON top of that, there's another new skill called SHOCKWAVE. It's a massive, powerful cooldown-based AOE hit, at level 20/20 it happens every 0.6 second after initial melee attack.
In general when you perform an attack 3 things happen:
1) Initial Earthshatter hits
2) Shockwave hits after 0.6 second
3) Spikes explode
4) All of these also proc Bleed and it "seals the deal"
5) 2x damage if EXERTED attack via Intimidating Cry.
So you perform 3 big AOE hits in 1 second resulting in massive damage. Overall it's about 4-5 million damage in 1 second if you hit with the spikes too. And over 6 Million on mace version.
======================================================================================
1) PROS
Spoiler

+silly AOE
+TANKY with 15000+ armour and 8 endurance charges
+stupid amount of Physical Damage mitigation. Over 90% of phys damage reduction
+you chill in traps and walk through lab like it's nothing, thanx to high regen
+can use both Staffs and Maces (Maces give more damage, but Staff give more block and Power Charges)
+no cluster jewels or expensive crafting rares

======================================================================================
2) CONS
Spoiler

-Endurance Charges need to be watched over
-Prone to Elemental Damage

3) Skill Tree Progression / Path of Building / Ascendancy / Bandits
Spoiler
Path of building: Staff / Block version https://pastebin.com/AEpdqBkx
Maces / Marohi Erqi version (25% more damage over Staff, but no BLOCK): https://pastebin.com/wqRxWPqC
For Ascendancy: Unflinching, Unbreakable, Unrelenting, Unyielding (uber lab)
Bandits: Kill All

======================================================================================
4) Early Levelling Gear / Skills
Spoiler

Get Ground Slam or Perforate and till level 12. At 12 get Earthshatter and use it in 4L with Melee Phys + Ruthless and then Inc. Aoe, Maim / Faster Attacks. Then use any axes or maces with high phys and attack speed:
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/List_of_unique_axes
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/List_of_unique_maces
These are all great for early-mid game mapping:

I can recommend using Relentless Fury early on and then buy the Blood Reaper.
Rare axes with high physical DPS will also work well.
You can also play with Maces early on if you wish.
For Ancestral Warchief 4L: Anc.Warchief-Melee Phys-Faster Attacks-Maim/Conc.Effect (later you will remove these supports as your Warchief will only become a buff)
Get mana leech on a ring/amulet or gloves AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE, cause we don't go to mana leech on tree (except for jewel)
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Wurm%27s_Molt is a fantastic early belt to leech early on.
Later on, just 1 jewel will be enough as far as you HIT something.

======================================================================================
5) My Actual Gear / End-Game Skills
Spoiler

For Uber Lab enchant: Helm - 40% Increased Earthshatter Damage, Boots - 16% Inc.Attack Speed / or 2% Regen / Move Speed
STAFF:
5L: Earthshatter-Melee Phys-Brutality-Shockwave-Fortify
6L: Earthshatter-Melee Phys-Brutality-Shockwave-Fortify-Pulverize
MAROHI ERQI:
5L: Earthshatter-Melee Phys-Brutality-Shockwave-Fortify
6L: Earthshatter-Melee Phys-Brutality-Shockwave-Fortify-Impale/Ruthless (in a matter of importance)
(maim is a LEGACY MOD and is nto available anymore)

Gloves should be with Vulnerability (for the mace version it's the ONLY thing that gives you bleed!)! Temp Chains / Enfeeble are fine, but are QoL more than damage of cause:
Helm can also be:

as well as EZ choices for chests:

Marohi Erqi is best weapon for MACE build:


======================================================================================
6) Flasks
Spoiler


You can use any flask instead of Sulphur

======================================================================================
7) Pantheon Gods
Spoiler

Major: Arakaali
Minor: Tukohama for maps, Ryslatha for dangerous bosses, Shakari for Chimera and poison stuff. I prefer Shakari

======================================================================================
8) Hardcore Viable or not?
Spoiler

Yes indeed, but i absolutely do not recommend to run extra-elemental damage map mods as well as extra boss damage. Also of cause NO regen/NO leech is impossible.

======================================================================================
9) FOR THE RICH GUYS
Spoiler

+1 curse crit astral plate chest, corrupted gear and jewels.

FAQ
1) Why you don't run Immortal Call by default?
Spoiler

Because i don't really need it. I prefer to run with phys damage reduction, regen as well as extra ALL RESISTANCE all the time (each Endurance Charge gives 4% all resistance). With Bubonic Trails however it can be an option.

2) Can i Kill Uber Atziri / Uber Elder? Shaper at least?
Spoiler

EZ PZ everything

3) How can i get intelligence EASY?
Spoiler

get this
and put it here


4) So what is better, Maces or Staffs? How do i play and level??
Spoiler

In general i would level with Maces (or Axes) and yes, Crit all the way.
At first you can go Resolute Technique, and then start gathering crit nodes as you go 60-70+.
After you gather enough currency and move into harder content, i would personally spec into Staffs and buy Hegemony. Damage might not be an issue at this point as you will get enough melee crit and regrets to respec. As well as you might get to the Glancing Blows and double block. However, dying in 90+ is quite a pain, so better be tankier.

Do you think this would be viable in a private league?

I like the build, but I am worried it is not feasible for a league starter outside of trade league.
Started playing March 7, 2013, played for a few months, and then took a six year break from it. Looking forward to playing something more diverse than Diablo 3.

Yeah it's viable.
Have to craft staff for SSF though or chance Hegemony's. Everything else is doable, except corrupted gloves

Hey! Im super interesting in Earthshatter and this build looks very fun. I tried to import the Pastebin into POB and im getting a big error. Can you try and import it yourself to see if you get the same issue?

Edit: Nvm. I found a newer version of POB and it is working now.
