[3.2] Immortal Poet (500 es Ci Tank)


This is an alternative version to my other Meme, the Immortal Archer.

Same concept, just a few different items.



100% physical damage is converted to various elemental damage using specific unique items. We also obtain 100% maximum resist all, which mitigates all the converted damage to zero.

40% phys conversion

45% phys conversion

18% phys conversion

For resists, we use:

is very important, because it allows us to use bodyswap for easy map clearing without lifting your finger.

To get 100% maximum resists, you need legacy Divination Distillate (6% max)
Flasks provide 18% max resist
Aura's provide 7% max resist

In order to make sure your mana doesn't fill up quickly and remove divination Distillate effect, you will need Shavronne's Revelation (which if worn in the right ring slot, prevents mana regen). You will cast solely on the mana you get from the flask.

Frenzy with a mana cost of around 18 can be spammed almost indefinitely. If your mana refills too quickly, you may want to try to increase the mana cost. You can also manually spam a curse like Elemental Weakness which quickly spends your mana.

Flask charges refill by using the Master Surgeon ascendancy node with a decent crit chance. Flasks also recharge quickly from Nature's boon. Increased flash charges gained applies to both natures Boon and charges gained from critical strikes. You can also gain flask charges using the leo belt mod when you take a critical strike.


The neck is not mandatory, but it makes uber atziri easier than a tier 1 map.



Also look for a conquerer's Potency (has flask effect) corrupted with "additional chance for you to take a critical strike".

Skill Tree

Level 91


Ascendancy points:
Master Surgeon
Veteran Bowyer
Nature's boon

Doesn't help much.
I chose Soul of Abberath.


Path of Building


2 of my jewels are just from the BV version, so they are not optimized obviously.


-Do not run -max resist maps

-Sextant mod "player life and mana flasks apply instantly" should prevent divination distillate from working.

The following bosses require additional care:

Atziri/ Uber atziri - Empowered flame blast has 10% penetration.
Atziri Trio - spawn a black physical DOT cloud on death. Just dont stand in it

Phoenix Guardian - lowers maximum fire resist by up to -10

The Shaper - Orbs/bullet hell have 25% cold pen

Death and Taxes - Flame blast has fire pen, Ice nova has cold pen, storm call has lightning pen

Garukhan - physical degen cannot be converted to elemental damage taken. (Dig Map)

Defiled Cathedral Boss - casts a physical degen vertical beam. Pretty easy to avoid.

The Elder - has two physical degens according to Wiki.

Necropolis boss (dont stand in the physical spike degen)

Charlotten Ghost - bleed aura of some kind

Core map boss - pools of physical degen appear

Flame blast exile - has fire pen

Lava lake's Kitava boss has physical damage over time ground. You can avoid it fairly easily.

Other versions and possibilities for league:

Here is a life based version with around 3200 hp. It has 90% of physical damage converted to elemental damage as well as 100% to all resists. You will need Path of Building to view it

Actually, you can't roll both of the shaped "Physical damage taken as cold/lightning on one item, they're conflicting mods, which is why no items exist with both mods on any league. It's still pretty hard to beat lightning coil.

However, there is the Formless Inferno helm, which has 8% of physical damage taken as fire, which could be of some use.

Awesome. +1 for the memes.
+1 to your great build.. really admire your mind here.. good job.. really one of the best builds i have seen in this game.

not boring..since its poets pen's body swap..
making use of the prismatic jewel and flask up as a path finder.. WOW..just wow.. amazing.. too much praises here..
How much do you think you would need to sink into this build to get it optimized?
so you mean this is not league viable?
Hardcore Viable?
thanks a lot guys!

to clarify, if getting a 45% phys conversion essence craft/shaper chest is not possible, then the immortal poet is limited to standard.

The sister build (using blade vortex and darkscorn) can be made on league (though at a huge expense for pure meme factor). ie, u need +1 max resists lightning coil and +1 max resist amulet.

This was adapted by another player, feel free to have a look:
