(3.0) [Lighty] Bladefall Totem's - League Starter Budget Shit Tier Leveling Build™

xhHT0jh
3.0 updated but new shits still to come
Build Introduction
You dont need any ascendancy for this build. Hierophant and Scion feel the best and give us some Quality of life with high mana regen, free power charges and a larger effective life pool. Scion is crit based due to infinite power charges from the Hierophant subclass and Hierophant is more tanky and has a better mana feel due to the 0 mana cost totems from Sanctuary of Thought. Overall bladefall totems works as a cheap and effective league starter and leveling build.

Hierophant Vs. Ascendant

There is no difference from Templar to scion in terms of gems/links/leveling/gear. Its more tanky and safer in HC overall, but has a rougher start due to the lack of dexterity and dps Scion gets. Sanctity of Thought First then Ritual Of Awakening. Scion goes crit in 3.0 because of free pcharges, hiero cant so it skips the crit route.

If you struggle getting dex when starting the Fluid Motion jewel can help to smooth the transition

Useful Things To Know
  • If possible get "immune to Silence" on your spire of stones
  • Get 6 bladefalls leveling in your weapon swaps once you hit dried lake, you dont need quality so vaal them all once they hit 20 in hopes of 21
  • You cannot stop chain from fucking you over, spread totems out and live with the pain

Was doing traps/poison (bear trap with poison is insane!), but feels like totems might be a bit safer. Looking forward to the guide!

The build breakdown video is uploading as we speak and I'll add some more to this guide aswell. It wont be close to the level of detail as my cyclone guide but im always checking to respond to questions if there are any.

Video is up.
So, this build is super cheap, super tanky, has fast clear speed from what I saw in the video and is perfect for HC.

I would be interested in a version with even more damage for softcore. What could be changed?

I would go crit, drop life nodes and prioritize crit on jewel and the spell crit nodes on tree. Double void battery would be nice, voidbringer gloves too.

You need dex on jewelry, gloves ect. Otherwise you can grab some on the passive tree until your gear gets better.
