Do you have a POB or a link to the BOTB version?


Unfortunately my character was decommissioned after reaching level 96 (the hightest I have ever been by far) and I didn't think about saving a pob for some reason :(

However the character is still listed on the poe.ninja ladder so I managed to snag the pob from there:

Note that on ninja it states my hp as 4.6k but if you import it in pob it correctly shows as 5.1k.

I consciously decided build more tanky rather than more damage (look at the ladder, so many people run cast on death - portal like this build guide here suggests which I personally dislike) because it's overkill anyway and I hate dying.

Aaalso note how crappy my rings and boots actually are. It's almost embarassing but like I mentioned, I never bothered to upgrade because it wasn't needed and I didn't feel like messing around with my resistances again.

How was the clear without using impulsas? I tried using an explodey chest and it just didn't compare whatsoever for impulsas but then i was playing inquis.

Also how did the perform before you got a BOTB would it still be playable? Were many changes needed once you got BOTB in terms of the tree, or did it just slot in immediately

@Nevzat, in case you're curious, my guide actually contains the info necessary concerning running the BotB set up. It mostly just involves swapping militant faith to glorious vanity to attain Corrupted Soul from a timeless jewel instead of your belt. Other than that, the third cluster jewel set up can just be spent towards getting more life or even pathing to acro/phase acro (although this ISNT in the guide and is just generic advice)

I don't recommend building tanky purely because it means playing slower.

I used to be the kind of player who hated dying, I would build all my characters with 7-8k life. Thing is, one day I kind of got tilted at dying so many times that I went "fuck it, im going glass cannon" and all of a sudden my Exilence currency per hour started sky rocketing, at that point I realised that wanting to not die is just an arbitrary self imposed limitation some of us acquire and it only serves to hold back our capacity to generate currency.

An easy way to explain why I wouldn't recommend going tanky is with the following example:

Lets pretend two players each have 1k EHP and 1k DPS, and every layer of offense or defense doubles they you have. They each have 10 layers to play with.

Player 1 is playing SSFHC, so he stacks 10 defensive layers. 1k doubles to 2k, to 4k, 8k, 16k, 32k, 64k, 128k, 256k, 512k and finally to 1.024M EHP, but still 1k DPS. This is okay because as long as he survives the largest hit, he can take his time on bosses.

Player 2 is playing softcore trade, he stacks 10 offensive layers. He ends up with 1m DPS and 1k EHP. This is okay because he kills everything that dares to even gaze upon him.

Along comes a 3rd player, thinking he will create a nice balanced character on softcore trade that has the best of both worlds. He gets 5 offensive layers and then 5 defensive layers. He ends up with 32k EHP and 32k DPS. He is 3% as tanky as Player 1, and has 3% of Player 2's DPS.

These are example numbers, but they help to illustrate why trying to make a balanced character is usually a mistake. When all our offensive and defensive layers are multiplicative, you have to all in one or the other for the most part. Playing BotB/Corrupted Soul with 8k EHP and acro/phase acro still lets you die alot if you let your guard down, but you also have a tiny fraction of the potential damage output and off screen potential that this build excels at. So sure, you may get to level 96 with less deaths than most Storm Brand players, but on the other hand, on a typical day, most glass cannon players can expect to farm Sirus 10-12 times due to the sheer speed of this build, and Sirus is done deathless anyway because he doesn't even get to do any abilities as a result of being insta phased.

Of course, its not up to me to determine what is fun for you. If you genuinely derive fun from not dying, then by all means that is what you should pursue. I am merely saying that this build excels at being a glass cannon, and if you're seeking to play it to its potential, that is the route you should pursue also. I hope this was informative, good luck!

PS: I wasn't a fan of explodey chest myself as the pops when not scaled weren't sufficient, but upgrading to an elevated explodey mod feels just as good as Inpulsas. The pops are slightly weaker damage wise, but they proliferate off each other, something Inpulsa's cant do. This gives wider coverage AND makes you immune to porcupines.

Thanks, what kind of movement speed are we looking at?

A video of general mapping T16 would be nice to see.

Looks nice, waiting to see more boss & maping videos!
I noticed the "End of Act 10" PoB section picks up the Staff Crit nodes at Serpent Stance. I assume this is incorrect?

Going to assume that end of act 10 assumes using an agnerod staff which those nodes are absolutely great if so.

OP..pretty sure your post on here and reddit caused the cluster jewels for lightning damage to at least triple in value.

This is in preparation for the Agnerod that we will acquire by T3-5 maps and the purpose here is to minimise the amount of regret orbs we use on a league start. With lightning slinger, you don’t need any extra support from your tree so towards the end you just work towards your storm brand set up.

@rhapsodieinblue prices should rebound in time
I sold all my gear to switch to this build and I am having a blast. The formatting of the guide is a godsend, especially the levelling section and direct links to trade searches. Thank you OP!

I can see that you're now wearing a Maw of Conquest, was the boost in survivability worth it?
