[3.15] Armageddon Brand Build (League Starter) | Elementalist | Expedition | Path of Exile 3.15

Hey guys, this is a possible starter build for next league. We don't know anything about next league and patch notes are not up yet but I wanted to share a starter build and here it is. Elementalist might get nerfed or not we'll wait and see. You can use this build as league starter and finisher. I managed to kill maven with this budget gear.

Leveling Gems:
Freezing Pulse - Arcane Surge - Onslaught - Added Cold Damage
Flame Dash - Steel Skin
Clarity / Frost Bomb

Switch to Storm Brand at level 12.
Storm Brand - Added Lightning Damage - Controlled Destruction - Elemental Focus
Flame Dash - Arcane Surge - Steelskin
Orb of Storms - Onslaught
Herald of Ice - Herald of Thunder

At level 28 or after first lab you can switch to Armageddon Brand and use the end game setup afterwards.

nice build
Seems really legit. Will probably start with it.
So this starter version is already capable with nearly all content?
Seems nice build.

Can u do like in the PoB like; till 1st boss these 12-14 stats, in the passive tree

if you can do that, that can be helpful for new people tbh

act1 - this tree
act 2 - this tree
act 3
act 4

etc! thanks in advance!

Also the order of ascendancys would be helpful too! :)

thanks and gg!

This build looks amazing, especially with the gear you've shown!

Any chance you could document this build a little more noob friendly?

I think I choose this build as my starter :)
how do you feel about the new support gem - cruelty support?

could it be viable for this build?
What order do you take the ascendancies? I'm assuming Shaper of Flames first with Bastion of Elements last, but is that correct?
Thanks for the guide
