[3.18] Siege Ballista Build | Hierophant | Sentinel | Path of Exile 3.18

Hey guys, dex stacking Siege Ballista build is here. Using Iron Commander Death Bow and this bow has "Siege Ballista has +1 to maximum number of Summoned Totems per 200 Dexterity". I managed to hit 2015 dex at level 95. You can try to get 2200 dex for extra totem but I'm not sure if it's worth investing, dps is already pretty good.

Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex

Active Totem Limit: Playing with 17 totem.
+3 totem, Siege Ballista
+10 totem, Iron Commander (+1 per 200 dex)
+1 totem, Pursuit of Faith (Ascendancy)
+2 totem, Panopticon (Skill Tree)
+1 totem, Watchtowers (Skill Tree)

Thread of Hope: Large ring

Brutal Restraint: Names or numbers don't matter, just look for useful mods such as:
- 5% increased Dexterity
- +20 to Dexterity

Leveling: I recommend you level with Hollow Palm tecnique. Start with Ground slam and switch to Ancestral Warchief at level 38 and keep playing until level 68. Leveling gems and trees are in the video.

Leveling Uniques:
- One With Nothing (Hollow Palm)
- Fluid Motion
- Brutal Restraint
- Tabula Rasa
- Belt of the Deceiver
- Astramentis
- Praxis
- Seven-League Step
- Le Heup of All
- Goldrim

I think you only get +1 for Panopticon instead of +2, I believe you still get 17 but its because you are not accounting for the base 1 that everyone gets, +3 gem gets you 4 total.

Other than that it looks like a very good reasonably priced build! ty for submitting it!

Hey, this build is quite interesting but how squishy is it in reality? I'm not that good dodging some mechanics and am always looking for a build that is more forgivable on that matter.
