[2.1.0][SC]XMass Tree - CoC Staff - Spin2Win - AuraCurser - Cheap (Ez Maps/FuN/Fast Clear Speed/DPS)

Disclaimer: If someone has any ideas how to improve the build, dont hesitate :) All input is valuable. Not counting trolls ofcourse ^_^



HoHoHo, as i have some free time in work, ive decided to present my new build to other players for xmas.

Inspiration for the build is Vagan mod "Hits can't be evaded" and 2.1 changes to curse auras :)

Overview
- Very fast clear speed.
- Easy to gear, Tabula is enough
- Reaches very high aoe dps
- Almost perm 4 Endurance 4 Frenzy 5 Power Charges
- Up to Auto 6 sec Immortal call (works as old CWDT)
- Can carry team to high lvl maps
- BM Staff solves all mana problems
- 6 Jewel slots allow for plenty of custumization (Survivability vs Dmg optimalization)
- Points hungry ! (switch around lvl 75)
- Requires curses ! (curse immune maps - no go)
- Perm 4% life leech 2% mana leech, life&mana on kill
- OVER 600% crit multi for spells
- Pretty cheap to start with
- *Up to 61% less dmg taken (thx for hint) (*forgot about taste of hate)
- Able to run 2 main skills (Either Staff or Armour will be free with slots).

What is required?

2.1 version requires only crit on staff.

ANY 5/6L armor will be good enough.


Why staff ?
Because:
- 2x6L is better than 2x3L + 6L
- Bigger range = more procs on spreaded monsters
- Daggers are FOTM and expensive ( bought my staff for 2c...)
- Staff nodes are GLOBAL, meaning they also affect spells linked with CoC
- You can craft BM on staff to create 7l for main skill and completly drop mana problems
- Free Endurance charges.

Example Gear:

Tree (No not xmax tree)
NEW DREAM TREE LVL 100 (+1 curse on tree idea is better for end-game, requires crit on gear)

- 4 Endurance charges all time up. Provide 16% physical dmg reduction and elemental resistances. Which helps on ele weakness maps.

Snapshot of Crit Cap
* Keep in mind that new cap is 85% because rest % come from Assasins Mark
Spoiler


Jewels
Look for:
- Critical strike chance
- Critical strike chance with Two Handed Weapon
- Melee Critical Strike chance
- Critical Strike chance with elemental skills ( cold / lightning )
- Critical multipler with elemental skills ( cold / lightning )
- Critical multipler with spells ( cold / lightning )
- % LIFE

Examples:


Base for any Jewel Should be:
- Life + Crit chance for not capped crit
- Life + Crit multi for capped crit

AM provides 10% additional crit chance, so for most monsters cap is 85%. For curse immune 95.

Leveling guide
EDIT:
BladeFall - Added Fire Damage - Controled Destruction - Spell Echo

And you can faceroll to end game ... OP spell is OP.

Tree for around lvl 40:
CLICK

Tree for around lvl 60, started investing into crit:
CLICK

Tree around lvl 70, took all quest reqards invested all in crit, bought basic gear
CLICK

After transition if you dont have cash for Vagan staff, you can use this unique:
Spoiler

It is very cheap, but remember to get some nice crit roll ~9.5%.


Bandits:
NORMAL Skill Point or Life
CRUEL Skill Point
MERCILESS Power Charge

If you miss on Crit after transition, pick additional power charge in Shadows area. Skip Spell Crit nodes under Templar and Frenzy charge next to Ranger. Capping crit is very important as Attack Speed comes from other sources.

If you have any questions, write them. Ill try to explain :)

CRAFTING GG UPGRADES
Staff
1) Start with:
* Vagan's Primordial Staff
* Vagan's Foul Staff
* Vagan's Royal Staff
* Vagan's Highborn Staff

2) Regal and hope for something useful like:
* 25%+ Crit
* Attack Speed
* Spell Damage (with more than 50%+)
* 25%+ Crit multi

3) MultiMod via Elreon

4) Add missing affixes to have:
* Hits cant be evaded
* Can Have Multiple Crafted Mods
* Attack Speed / 25% crit multi
* 25%+ Crit chance
* Spell Damage (with more than 50%+)
* Blood Magic lvl 1 from Vagan

(EDIT. 6L is no longer required 5L is enough to craft BM for main skill, Life leach gem is a quality of life support)

Cost: 2Ex, 2Divine, ~6 chaos, 1-1500 fuse ;)

Amulet
Simple, ANY Amulet with resistances + life is worth tryin to get +1 curse.
1) For Cyclone with less than 86% crit chance master craft Crit Chance
2) For Cyclone with more than 86% crit chance master craft something you lack like "Resistances/Int"
3) Vaal Orb and pray to RNG Gods.

Cost: 2Chaos, 1Vaal Orb, RNG Gods Blessing.

SINGLE TARGET
Use Crit Self Cast Spell in free Staff/Armour 5L/6L

Idea1. Freezing Pulse
Freezing Pulse - Spell Echo - Power Charge On Crit - Faster Projectiles/Faster Casting - Cold penetration
Legacy explanation

Ez to sustain it with 2% mana leech and/or with Rallyin Cry.

Tested on my standard character (* she is NOT optimized to casting and has NO good jewels and NO crit nodes for spells near Reservation Nodes)


Spoiler


Test Tabula Links




This is only tooltip with charges (NO BUFFS APPLIED), with Assasins Mark multipler its 46k * 1.43 ~65k dps. Just remember my standard char is not optimized to run it. With normal jewelers and more % dmg on staff it can go up up higher.

EDIT. With vaal haste and Atziri flask went to 65k( 92k with AM ). So 70k burst with correct jewels and Arcane Potency is VERY possible.


Idea2. Swap Bladefall and novas for : FreezingPulse/FlameSurge and EK.

I was just dreaming of a staff CoC double nova build a couple of weeks ago, need to see a video ASAP! Excited to see it in action.

Please, do record a one or two maps, i would like to see how fast it goes, even mid tier maps. I was trying to build CoC cyclone with scepters as they are usually 1-2c for amazing rolls and the double 6L is not really any advantage, but staves have a bit better crit scaling.

thx

I apologize but the title is complete bs , i dont need to see a video to tell that this build would fail pretty bad at hard 80+ maps

99% PoE population wont see 80+ maps coz they drop so rarely.

But i did run few Arsenals and had no problems... Just dont roll 300% more dmg from fire ice lightning with Critical strike chance 400% and crit mutli 150 :s

Really fun looking build. I'm debating trying a similar thing with the Vagan daggers. That said, I initially thought it was going to be CoC/Cyclone with a Sire of Shards. Projectiles flying everywhere!
