[3.19] Armageddon Brand Build(League Starter) | Elementalist | Lake of Kalandra | Path of Exile 3.19

Hey guys, armageddon brand league starter build is here. This build will carry you to red maps with no investment at all but when you reach to the end game bosses you have to invest or switch to something else like detonate dead or explosive arrow.
But I recommend you a non-meta skill:

- Low Budget: 0-10 ex

Unique items: Replica Emberwake and Anima Stone
These items might be little expensive at the beginning of the league. You don't have to buy them if you are planning to switch another skill.

Mana: Use a mana flask until you find "Non-Channelling Skills have # to Total Mana Cost" mod.

- Awakened Gems (Burning Damage and Unbound Ailments)
- Watcher's Eye (#% to Damage over Time Multiplier while affected by Malevolence)
- Cluster Jewels
Large: Prismatic Heart / Burning Bright / Disorienting Display
Medium: Blowback / Cooked Alive - Wasting Affliction

Leveling: Leveling gems and trees are in the video.

Bandits: Kill All

- Armageddon Brand: Now deals 69 to 104 Fire Damage at gem level 1 (previously 46 to 69), up to 924 to 1386 at gem level 20 (previously 613 to 920). Now activates every 1.5 seconds while Attached (previously 1 second). Now has 200% Effectiveness of Added Damage at all gem levels (previously 135%).
- Lower the damage of player Ignite by 28%.

- The Reservation Mastery that granted 15% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency of Skills has been removed from the Passive Skill Tree.
- The Gravicius' Veiled modifier on Body Armours that grants 12–14% of your maximum Life as Energy Shield has been replaced with something else. We can no longer craft that mod.

You may run into some problems after the changes.

Problem: Can't use all auras with this setup now because 15% mana reserve mastery is gone.

Solution: There are some ways to solve this problem.
- Get a helmet enchant with any reserve efficiency and lower the clarity, vitality level to 15.
- Use Enlighten support.
- Annoint Charisma.

Hey, nice Build, should be a great starter, but later on would you switch to DD Ignite? i heard it was nerfed really hard and not longer good for Ignite?.

DD got nerfed but it's still fine, just not as strong on a literal shoestring budget, I would stick with this until you got a few pieces if you really wanna go the DD route.
Hi, yours pob doesn't work, I get an error.What should I do?

How come you're using Dirty Techniques as an anointment? Can't seem to find any indication that the 10% Damage over time is worth it?
