[3.1 Video Guide] Dark Pact Totem Ascendant (Beginner Friendly) Atziri/Uber Izaro/Shaper Viable

Hello. =) It will be difficult to me to play to data build if I have very few currency? I have only a tabula and not really many chaos. I would like to learn whether to me will comfortably play to data build and to farm at least low tier maps? (play only on hardcore)

Hello guys and Ghazzy. Just wanted to ask about Doedre's Elixer. With the chaos resistance from our passive nodes. +8 , +8 , and +4. our chaos resist is only a negative -40% which I believe isn't enough to trigger a savage hit for the Elixer. Thoughts?

You should be more than fine with low currency to get this build started :)

Make sure to use AWT for lvling as described & only switch to DP when you have a 5L carcass jack or covenant (I suggest Carcass Jack) and get a cheap Brightbeak + a spell dmg shield for easier/faster map clearing later on. The AWT will carry you easily in maps even on a cheap 4L to get yourself the currency you need.

Hey,

Zerker makes you take 10% increased damage so you will proc Cloaked in Savagery :) Just don't get chaos res on your gear! (It's been tested & confirmed as you can see in the video, I have the chaos res / dmg nodes specced in the video).

Hello,

I recently started playing PoE on Xbox. I decided I wanna go with your build, BUT there are not really many items on 'tradeboard' (that's our trading system) So I can't buy any of those unique items you were suggesting and it feels like some of them are mandatory. I was lucky enough to find the Covenant while doing 68lvl lab, but it's only 4 sockets. I guess I should switch to DP only when I have it with at least 5L?
The main concern is weapon... I have legit no idea what to use. There's no way I'm getting my hands on Pledge any soon, nor I was able to find any of those unique weapons you pointed on our 'tradeboard'.
So the question... is there any other weapon setup I could use and make it work? Like any rare 1h+shield / 2h with specific stats?

I just want to be able to already play with this DP build and upgrade it over time.
I'm also not sure if I should go for physical dmg or spell damage with my items.

Apologies for bombing you with probably noob questions, but any help would be appriciated.

Hey,

Yeah only swap when you get a 5L, AW totems will carry you through maps easily without any investment :)
Since you got the covenant try aiming for a Brightbeak or any spell dmg dagger or Mace so you can keep using Shield Charge together with a spell dmg providing shield!

Physical dmg won't do anything for the DP, chaos & spell dmg will scale it.


Never apologize for asking questions in my threads, stream, youtube or discord community I welcome any and all questions bro!

Hey,

You are using Carcass Jack for DP in a 5L without Spell Echo, this needs to be changed. The guide is listing the gems in order of efficiency and also stating that if you are using anything else than Pledge of Hands Spell Echo is the #1 support gem you need to use. Outside of that you have very low HP rolls or no HP rolls on some of your items. The gloves are soso tbh, they give dmg but you are in need of a lot of HP.

Since you decided to use Carcass Jack I would recommend getting a 1H weapon and a Spell DMG/HP shield so that you can use Shield Charge as suggested in the guide which will increase your clear speed significantly and also, again, HP.

The best way to scale DMG for a DP build is to stack HP (generally at least) as that will increase the baseline DMG the ability does.

Reason you are getting one shot by Izaro is simply lack of life which is a result of poor gear choices, the helmet & gloves are items I would change first, then I'd replace the weapon for a 1h/shield and then I'd get better jewelleries for more life.
Once those things are sorted I would also get myself a "Belt of the Deciever" that I would switch the Bisco's Leash for single target boss fights :)

I couldn't see your character in your profile as you have itset to private (by default) in your account setting here on the poe website :)
Assuming you have Merc lab done already and are refering to Uber Lab. (Since you shouldn't switch to DP till you have Aspect of Carnage/Crave the Slaughter & Pain Reaver)

Hi! This build seems to be great, but I have one question. Is 5L pledge of hands worth using without kaoms heart? And how is this build doing with bosses? Any problems?

Hey,

Cheers!

The pledge version felt the most stable vs bosses, though for clear speed I'd stay away from it and use 1h/Shield instead.
Uber Atziri was horrible to deal with but the build literally facetanked every boss before that.

This build gains tons of DMG based of your life pool so the more life the more damage you'll be doing. You can play without Kaom's but it is recommended as it is the BiS item slot.
