[3.15] Carrion Golem Super Tanky Build - Very Very Hard to Die - 5M DPS - League Starter

Hi Guys,

First Time doing a build guide, dont really know how to make the page look nice yet, but really want to share my build with you guys first, because I haven't seen anything similar yet. Of course, there are aura stacking builds, which is probably more tanky and more dps, but budget wise, nowhere near this one.

On top of that, the build is very friendly with league start, most of gears are available from start to finish.

First of all, it is a elementalist carrion golem build, nothing fancy, but to be honest, and I followed many other build guide before, having like 10-50M damange pretty good, but I die a lot, which is really anoying to me. I hate the 10% XP penalty. So now, I focus on defence a lot more, and sacrifice the damage, so current damage is like 5M, not too bad, still be able to do endgame content, but not like crazy endgame, like 5 way or 100% Delirum stuff, maybe viable, but I dont like to die as I mentioned.

Anyway, sorry for the long intro, lets have a look at the damage and defence

Damage: 5M+ 4 Carrion Golem is doing 1M each, plus all the other minion probably do another 1M combined, so about 5M.

1. 90% Physical Reduction - Most of Time
2. 83% Elemental Resist - Divine Flesh
3. 87% Chaos Resist
4. Fortify - From AG Kingmaker
5. 800 life regen, can go up to 1100 if on conserated ground
6. No Crit - From AG Body Armour
7. 50% Evade - Enemies are blind from sand stance
8. Immortal Call 27% less damage taken - Cast when damage taken
9. No Bleed No Corrupted Bleed - Body Armour and Jewel Implict
10. 20% Spell Block - Shield Mod
11. 2500 Ele Damage Shield - Primal Aegis
12. Some dodge like 5-10%, this is from Flask though

In short, very hard to die.

Note: 90% Physical Reduction is most of time with 15 layers of Crab Aspect from Body Armour, when u get hit and the layer goes down, that is when the immortal call kicks in


POB Link:


One thing that is not available on POB is the AG gear and spectre I use
AG Gear
1. Kingmaker
2. Elder Helmet with +9% physical damage take
3. Garb of the Ephemepal - This is where you get the no crit
4. Southbound - No need to get the vulnerabilty curse implict cause we running curse on skitterbots
5. Victario Flight Or a warlock boots with regen % life
