[3.4] Xaero's phant, ZO/CI, FS, 25k ES, (decent gear), All Content in game


Hello guys! This is my first public build. In advance sorry for mistakes.

Short explanation

This is Hierophant caster and defensive build with high energy shield (20k and more), energy shield regeneration (4-6k/sec) and Chaos Inoculation.
Build utilize high pool of strength for energy shield and damage. Core items are Geofri's Sanctuary, Shaper's Touch and Doon Cuebiyari. In skill tree we are focused on strength, life regeneration, jewels and energy shield nodes.
For spell, I chosed Scorching Ray CWC Firestorom, but build gives the possibility to use plenty of others spell (and totems).
Also with the equipment used in this build you can make similar builds on Chieftan, Scion and other Ascendancy.

Pros & Cons
Pros
- Tanky. You can facetank every bosses in game, including Shaper.

Cons
- Pretty slow, not good for fast maping, Shaper's fight is too long.

My gears:
Spoiler
This is my gears in Standard, including flask, jewels and socketed gems.





About equipment:

- Geofri's, Shaper's Touch and Doon are necessary for this build.
- Shield, helm, and rings which is possible in this order : energy shield, strength, resistance.
- Boots: Alberon's Warpath (he's cheap) or high ES Sorcerer boots.
- Belt: in this order as much possible, strength, energy shield, resistance.
- Amulet: Astramentis is enough.
- Jewels: Three Efficient Training, other, look as much as possible to strength, energy shield, resistance. Brawn Crimsom jewel is good chose. Watcher's Eye (clarity: mana to energy shield) gives about 2k more energy shield, not necessary.

Stats:

Spoiler


This is defence stats in hideout with running Discipline, Purity of Elements, Vitality, Clarity, Stone Golem, Sulphur and Rumi's flask.
On map we get extra defence from boots enchant, Fortify, Molten Shell and immunity to Elemental Ailiments (Arcane Blessing).

Have you tried using Brutus's lead scepter with this sort of setup? With the amount of strength you have, you will hit like an absolute truck...

I have not tested Brutus's lead with this build, but it seems like a good idea.
Still, it might be better to use it in someone Ascendant or Chieftain builds, that are more focused on attack skils.
With this or similar equipment and with this skill tree, the Chieftain will give more than 2k strength....

Loving the concept, I've been wanting to do a CI Hierophant for some time now and it's great to see it reach such high ES numbers. I was thinking of doing something similar to this but using SR Totems instead for damage and Memory Vault to get high armour. I don't mind being slow if my character feel immortal.
Nice, I'm gonna run wit ha few ideas from this build.

Btw you are missing your helmet in your gear. Do you use Memory vault?

Tnx, I'm just seeing now. I'm using Hubris crafted with Essence of Rage. I post it now. Memory vault It's also good for this build.

I have an idea that is longer in my mind ... Witch, Ocultist bow build.
This concept "strengh to ES" for high ES/ES regen, which means Geofri's Sanctuary and Shaper's Touch as mandatory, Soul Strike Quiver in combination with Wicked Ward as a extra (incredible) defense.
For ofense, Iron Grip from tree, or some bow with Elder prefix "Socketed Gems are Supported by Level # Iron Grip".....
I'm not sure about the choice of attack and the amount of final DPS, but it seems fun to try.
