💠PATH OF BUILDING💠
Spoiler
*Make sure you have PoB community fork*
League start : Start on the spell cascade nodes and work your way up to arcane potency. Then work your way to Acrobatics. DO NOT TAKE AGNOSTIC OR MoM UNLESS YOU HAVE ENOUGH MANA/MANA REGEN. (Should be around lvl 65-70 when you can take them)

Recommended version is a way cheaper version for lvl 80-90.

Min/Max version should be used to know the next items to get to min/max.

Recommended Version : https://pastebin.com/Y73Lszwi
League Start Version : https://pastebin.com/GXDLNBhA
Min/max Version : https://pastebin.com/zqQhBRaj

Pros
_____________________________________
✅Flasks sustain (It's a blessing for bosses)
✅Tanky 10k+ Effective life + Fortify
✅Cannot be stunned
✅Speedy boi
✅Insane damage with low investment
✅Great league starter

Cons
_____________________________________
❌Slower without cast speed
❌Expensive to min/max
❌A lot of buttons to press
❌Cant run reflect
❌2 Highly recommended unique

💠3.13 UPDATE💠
Spoiler
3.13 Small nerfs to the ascendency. More survivability
Assassin poison/physical version got hit with medium nerfs but not this version.

Physical version of the build is going to be significantly expensive at league start since a good number of streamers have made videos about the poison/physical version of bladeblast/bladefall


💠ABOUT THE BUILD💠
Spoiler
This is my version of a Bladeblast/Bladefall build utilizing mana as the main source of damage. Since we are using mana in synergy with arcane cloak and MoM, We are very tanky. Can't dodge ? doesn't matter you have 10k+ effective life :)

Why use Mana over Physical/Poison version ? Quite simple, Tankiness and dmg explosion. We can blast any bosses with insane damage due to arcane cloak/Vaal righteous fire/Sigil of power/Wave of conviction All working together at once.

Most of the ideas for this build came from Akane on YouTube with his Ball Lightning Indigon Scion. I've played his build for 2-3 leagues now and I found myself addicted to mana as the main source of Offense/Defense


💠HOW TO PLAY💠
Spoiler
Alternate between Bladefall (To create knifes) and Bladeblast (explode them). Bladeblast will overlap with each other and create insane dmg. If you can, precast arcane cloak, sigil of power and a few bladeblast before the boss attacks.


💠GEAR SETUP💠
Spoiler
Weapons : One melee weapon is required in order to get fortify.
Head : Helm with conc
Body armor : Carcass jack because of the AoE. Overlaps blades
Gloves : High life/mana and res
Boots : Omeyocan or any movement speed/mana/life boots
Amulet : Atziri foible Highly recommended. If not use any mana regen amulet
Rings : Essence worm Mandatory unique When approaching endgame. Other ring : Life/mana spell damage res
Belt : Stygian belt, Life/mana res Increased flask effect. Flask recovery rate
Jewel : Watcher's eye with Taken from mana before life while affected by clarity. The rest doesn't matter
The vigil (used to get fortify even tho we're using spells)


💠LEVELING💠
Spoiler
I used Fireball (or any spell you like) until lvl 18
Fireball - Lesser multiple projectiles - Added lightning damage

I then replace fireball with wave of conviction near the end of act 2
Wave of conviction - Elemental focus - Added lightning damage

Lvl 38-until maps Bladeblast/Bladefall
Blade blast - Intensify - Faster casting - Elemental focus
Blade fall - Spell cascade - Faster casting - Unleash


💠VIDEOS💠
Spoiler
The following videos are only meant to have an idea of the build. This is so janky gear i put together in standard and is 2/5 the damage this build could be doing. No clusters were used.

💠FAQ💠
If you have any questions i'll do my best to answer them as quickly as possible!

Spoiler
Don't you run out of mana eventually ?
-No since we have close to infinite mana flasks charges and insane mana flask regen.

Will be following this build religiously. Had a lot of fun with Remi’s? variation of Ball Lightning MoM scion. This looks pretty interesting.

Alright cool haha, will be looking for to updates on this thread!
I also played Akanes BL Indigon miner and fell in love with the playstyle!!
I'll for sure play your BB/BF build this league.

A question tho, why all the "add # to # lightning dmg to spells"?
Hey !
Congrats for this build it seems really interesting.

I may use it for next season but I'm a little worry... have you ever used it as league starter ? I heard Scion was awful to league start with.
I saw there was a "League start" POB but I still wanted your feedback on the leveling experience.

Thanks in advance :)
Cant import in PoB (get some errors >_<, updates are checked). Anyways, is this agnostic version? Or only arcane cloak + MoM?
Didn't find the notes in the POB. Are they useful?

We use lightning as our main source of damage. We don't scale physical with this build due to archmage.

Scion is definetely weaker for acts early on since we don't get to use smoke mine right away. In terms of damage Since we start near the spell damage nodes it's not a problem. For me personally the extra 10-20 min of leveling is worth it for the benefits later on, but up to you to decide. I league started with scion for the past 3-4 leagues and never had a big problem with it
