I have (hopefully) made my character public now, had no idea it was private by default. I looked through some characters on poe.ninja and none of them have devouring diadem. I suppose that might be somewhere to start.

Impulsa was quite expensive, I think I paid 6 ex for my 6-linked. But it is so worth saving up for it simply because of how much it accelerates your clear speed and helps you make more currency. I understand now though why it's slightly "downplayed" and alternatives are presented


Yes, it's public now.

Devouring Diadem is fantastic for this build. Definitely keep it. If you want to maximize damage, replace Enfeeble + Blasphemy with Enlighten (lvl 3 or higher) + Zealotry.

Aside from what you already know you need (multimodded second dagger, jewels with life/ES, watcher's eye if you don't have one (can't see whole tree on phone)), your equipment is pretty solid. Other upgrades will most likely be incremental and not dramatic, aside from getting a Mark of the Shaper + an Elder ring. Also, make sure your unique flasks are optimized for maximum damage. They greatly improve our damage output!


What I should replace disciple with? Watcher eye and mark are out of my reach at the moment


Keep discipline! Get a Vaal discipline if you can.

You can get a Mark of the Shaper for only a few chaos right now...

Not on ps4 unfortunately the cheapest is 4 ex, there's watcher eye for 60 chaos not sure if worth it

Aw, shit. I can't comment on that economy. Just go for the dagger, then, and that'll provide you enough DPS to do all content.
What exactly do I need on a Dagger to outpace a Divinarius?
Why do you link Arcane Surge to your main skill?

The main modus operandi these days seems to be to link it to Flame Dash, which usually is enough to keep it up, freeing up another gem slot for Arc.
Hi, this is my first post here, I made 2 chars following your build, one on Betrayal and one on Synthesis, my char on Synthesis (Zuadona) is the most faithful to your build, she have a complete build with strong and expensive stuff, but i feel so squishy, i killed the Shaper guardians, but i had to ask help to kill Chimera and almost was unable to kill Hydra (killed on the last portal with almost no life).

I wanna ask if i have something wrong with my build, because i dont think i can kill Shaper.
The build is pretty squishy in fights such as chimera & minotaur especially. Those require additional setup such as different flasks & maybe using a very high HP chest instead of Inpulsa to do without a bunch of deaths. Especially Chimera as the burrow phases can get really brutal.

I had less issues with all bosses I downed this league than I had with effin' chimera. Several Red Elders, Shaper, Mastermind & Aul all downed without much deaths.

Chimera absolutely wrecks me, and if not for my good damage output I'd have no chance with that boss.

Whoa--huge changes in the update, moving away from elemental overload, going back to life/mana for some reason?
What a great build. I've chosen it for my first playthrough of the game (synthesis ssf) and it worked like a charm through the acts. I don't like maps (yet?), but I wanted to give some feedback.

Personally, I liked storm brand much more than the lighting spire trap, a) for its lazy playstyle and b) for fast moving bosses, because it enables a safe playstyle for beginners like me. Since the build path is so generic, you have a lot of freedom what skills exactly to play with. Great!
Can you post your current gear?
