[3.4] Herald of Agony Pathfinder [Uber Elder, Uber Atziri, Shaper Down | HC Viable]

Is Acrobatics good? How does it do to survive in delves?

Your build looks very similar to mine(https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2205988), but with lower dps and hp. So I really want to know how deep you can delve without problems.

More videos will help. Thanks!

Can you post a few more vids? Would like to see other guardian fights, shaper, some delves, uber elder if possible. Cool build man, thinking of trying it.

I see other builds using dps flasks like Witchfire, and Atziri's. Do you find these simply aren't needed, or that you need to run with all defensive flasks?


There aren't any damage flasks that can increase crawler damage, and the TR damage is like 5% of what the crawler can do so it's pretty pointless to use flasks scaling that when we could use them for survivability instead.

Will work on more videos. Acrobatics is great in delve - 6k HP with a Basalt up is enough to survive any single hit at the point I'm at (depth 290), and my huge evasion ensures there won't be a rapid followup hit in the split second it takes for my life on hit to heal me back to full. I can stand still and facetank the Abyssal City spawns at i83, for example.
I've added a video of a Shaper kill. Probably not the fastest you've ever seen, but it's decent and it's super safe.
Heya,I've followed your build as well and I can say I am very pleased with it.Currently at level 88.

I have to ask a few questions.
First of all,I noticed that you are using the projectile weakness curse.If we were to use proj. weakness,would pierce still be good on the 6L?.Wouldn't there be any other gems that could benefit the minion more?

In the last patch notes,they added the CHAOS tag on the herald.How do you think that affects the minion and our setup.Would %chaos damage be good on a jewel instead?Or mabye change one of the gems in setup,with something like Void manipulation?(Linking back to my earlier question)

Yes, I've switched to Projectile Weakness over Poacher's Mark, I think it's a bit better DPS. I still like Pierce because I don't always get the curse on packs before the crawler deletes them when clearing through maps, plus it's a 20% more multiplier. It would be higher damage though to swap that link for Empower, and I don't think it would sacrifice much clear speed at all. I just haven't wanted to re-color my chest to try it.

I tried to figure out a good way to exploit the chaos tag and couldn't find one. The crawler itself doesn't do chaos damage as far as I can tell, just physical - chaos tag is on the gem because of the buff it gives the player.
Having lots of fun with this.

Since I'm using a Poacher's Mark ring I used Maim in the Toxic Rain links.

Currently have Blind as the 6th link. Not entirely sure what to put there - a damage link (and indeed the AoE nodes on the tree) seem wasteful since the actual personal damage component is laughable, but the Agony Crawler itself is nuts. Played around with Withering Touch - but mainly on the misapprehension that Wither included another snare (it doesn't, that's apparently a separate effect), and considering trying decay.

Blind is good though.

Happy to report that I killed Uber Elder successfully with the build! (My first U. Elder kill)

why dont you need to link quill rain?
