Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for :-)

I have 2 questions for you:
1. With the curses rework, is there any penalty casting it through Arcanist Brand?
2. Seeing how curses now work on bosses, do you think there is room for a 2nd curse like Elemental Weakness?

1. Arcanist was not mentioned getting a penalty for casting curses.
2. For comparision, I removed the Stone Golem and added Elemental Weakness gem in. I got about 10% more damage. To get the extra curse, you have several options:
Doedre's Damning (ring) - replace rare ring, or Berek by using ignite prof. I would probably remove Added fire, but Awakened Added Fire is better.
Corrupt your amulet - very unlikely
Annoint for extra curse - You lose the dmg from Searing Heat. You got the same dmg again. Then I rather save the gem slot and get some more life regen then another curse.

Maybe a good crafted chest item could make up for the extra curse, but I am not knowledgeable enough about crafting.
Looking at your video it is extremely slow when it comes to map clear and you doin maven instead of uber maven is red flag. League starters that do not do uber maven on first day of league are dead on arrival.
Also hatred on divine blessing with lifetap doesn't work anymore. That means this build will deal no damage at all compared to the legacy version.

How would you improve the map clear on tight budget(aka league start) except respec to EK ofcourse? Also at league start which of these do we use

And I nearly forgot to ask, how to fit 600mf and 150item quant in to this build? Thanks.

I feel pretty, Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty, and witty and gay,
And I pity Any girl who isn’t me today!

Spoken like someone that never played good build.
You think seismic trappers are going to wait untill end of the league to kill ubers?
Or venom gyre builds will not clear maps for first 2 weeks to allow you to catch up?
That is not how it works.
And that still does not mention the actual best builds, because best builds need little more currency for inspired learning or hh and after that they ignore gear for sake of more MF. (lightning arrow, tornado, kinetic blast...)

Pure bossing build like path of math presented 1 shots uber maven at low budget, i do not expect all builds to do that but when they are this slow in maps i kinda do.

After 3 hours from start of the league i expect to be in red map by spamming leap slam+frostblink+arrow(by x-swapping) and after that if i can not ssf at least 50 divine orbs of currency in same day by speed clearing maps what is the point of playing.
I'm not here to have fun, I'm here to fill my excel sheets.

Well, if that's your goal good for you, but if you're that good and play that many good builds, you don't need to be here right?

Also, he specified in his post that it's a 0-20 divine budget. If you want more, Mr Gigachad, go in PoB and have fun min-maxing the build for yourself. Don't judge someone else's build because it doesn't meet your criteria.

Gl in the league!

First builds i mentioned are SSF RACE viable so they are 0d budget i do not know what is your point with that one.
Spoiler
You want to tell me that you need 200divine orbs for seismic traps? Dude it is popular HC SSF Gaunlet build. And for the other builds i mention specifically that they cost more so are not true league starters.

path of math build is under 10div and does 1shot uber bosses. But this one is not SSF viable because you need unique items. It is still good example of what can be achieved at low-end of budgets tho.


How else to judge anything in existence without using my subjective criteria? That literally makes no sense. You are asking for "Opinionless opinion" To judge is synonym of "give opinion"

Also I'd argue that the bossing, magic finding and speed clearing are how most people judge how good build is. You do not see people praising unbuffed default attack builds that are killing uber shaper for 12 weeks. Because very few people are like "I want the slowest, lowest dps build that earns me the least loot possible per minute"

To not futher derail the thread this is my last reply to you.

I'll leave you with my plan on how to get lvl 100 in under 40minutes from start of the league https://youtu.be/5QmTUQbfdok

Thanks for wishing me luck, I'll need it to get at least few mirrors in the first day. See you in the ladder

Hello! Can you explain to me how the staff gems works? I'm already using it but I can't activate Hatred nor see if it activates itself... Kinda noob here.

EDIT: I found what I did wrong. I don't have enough mana cuz of malevo + clarity + purity hahahaha oh GOD how could I NOT see this..... Turns out in order to use Hatred I need to deactivate all my auras. Not gonna work yet, still need to upgrade my gear.

EDIT²: Anyway, it is linked to Lifetap, so, why it is not taking from my HP instead of MP? What am I doing wrong?

My actual build:

Spoiler


And everything is piece of cake until Kitava's second debuff. I need to finish the acts, tho, that's why I'm not yet worried about better gear.
