[3.0] Abberath's Herald Of Destruction - Autobombing Wraeclast




Welcome to my Herald Autobomber guide. After uploading a couple of videos a lot of people asked questions, so I figured I'd write a guide for those interesed.

First of all, credit where credit is due. Shoutout to Aimmboat from whom I got the idea.

The build focuses on high clearspeed while maintaining a lazy playstyle. It cannot kill any guardians or shaper - it's used for high speed farming mid tier maps to generate currency (and having tons of fun blowing shit up while doing it).


Highlights
* Triggers Herald of Ice & Herald of Thunder with Abberath's Hooves
* Permanent Phase Run & Quicksilver
* Vaal RF for bosses
* Around 5k life & 1.5k ES
* Can use Bisco's Collar & Leash
* Instant Leech


PoB Link good gear







Pros & Cons
Spoiler
Pros
* It's super fun to blow stuff up with heralds :)
* Very fast map clear
* Lazy gameplay
* This is you and your friends
Spoiler


Cons
* Boss damage is meh at best after a certain tier (up to 10 is fine for me)
* Needs Abberath's Hooves (90c as of writing this)
* Gets kinda expensive once you want to scale it past mid tier maps



Required Uniques
Spoiler

With this chests your heralds will always reserve 45% mana no matter the links. The +2 to HoT is also nice!


With this we start our explosion chains. It's damage should not be underestimated either. Also, it's one of the best leveling uniques imho.



Recommend Uniques & Rares
Spoiler

Best in slot, no questions asked. Gives us another 6 link, has nice stats and the Herald it summons spreads our ailments.



High elemental damage, global crit, elemental leech, get 2 of these bad boys asap.



Provides a more reliable way to trigger Herald of Thunder with Herald of Ice. It's also super cheap this league.



Gloves with a horror craft allow Vaal RF to reach crit cap.



Current gear in Harbinger league

Life, global crit chance/multi, anything elemental, and use them to balance resists for The Wise Oak.

what about lvling tips?
gems or skill trea at 50/70 points? would be nice <3
This looks very interesting. I play in standard and don't have access to the helmet. What helmet should I use and what is the ideal standard gear that could really push this build to the limits?
Double post (Bug)

Prioritize power charges, while grabbing life nodes left and right as you need them.

* Level to 12
* Equip Abberath's with Added Cold / Added Lightning / Controlled Destruction / whatever you fancy
* Start running hit level 18
* Equip Herald of Ice and Thunder with Added Cold / Added Lightning / Crit Strikes
* Run some more
* Do normal lab asap for power charges
* run run run
* Do cruel lab for base crit
* At this point it's just more running until you're at maps :)

Check out the PoB Link at the top of the post for chase gear. If you cannot get your hands on a Tempest's Binding your best bet would be an Essence of Horror crafted helmet.

Do you think there is a way to push this build beyond mid-tier maps?

I'm doing t13 maps no problem, anything past that I don't know, sorry.
Is the pantheon the only way to protect ourselves from reflect? You get chunked pretty hard in the beach video I believe.
With good gear, how much HP do you expect? (sorry I cant access pob right now, only on mac).
