guys i need some suggestions to make my char a little bit more tanky.

maybe taking glancing blows with nearby blocking nodes can help but I'm not sure which dmg nodes to drop. :S


I would drop the Sulfer flask for a Basalt. You can also pick up a jewel with cannot be inflicted with corrupted blood so you can use that affix for something else.

Add Tempering Catalysts to your amulet.

Your 3 rare jewels are missing ES. That would be a 21-24% increase. I would try to get a rare jewel with 8% energy shield, corrupted blood, and anything else you need. Setup a live search for ES and corrupted blood and you can usually snipe them really cheap.

You have an empty socket. You could add in a guard skill such as Steelskin and then just have it on your left mouse button so it is constantly refreshing as you run.

Maybe a Shaper Crystal Belt with "increased energy shield from body armor".



ty for input sir.

Hi, first off amazing guide. And I don't think I've every had a more chill (no pun intended) leveling experience. Put vortex on move and just ran through every act.

I just killed kitava though and when I look at the PoB there's the tree for Act 10, then a tree for CI Lvl 80. Seems like I should go CI when I get to >5000 ES.

So, between Act 10 and level 80 what should tree look like? I'm guessing I have to start taking all the ES nodes I can, otherwise I'll never hit 5k ES? Should I respec as much as I can to CI tree now (at lvl 71) and just not take CI until ES is high enough?

I'm a bit confused on a pretty crucial part of the build. Maybe I'm just not reading it and understanding it correctly. But there is this passage:

"Because of these factors, an opportunity arose. We now take Storm Brand out of the wand and link it with Hextouch and 2 curses. Frostbite is mandatory, but the second curse can be Temporal Chains for defense or Elemental Weakness for damage."

But then the gem setup goes on to say this for the CI version of the build.

"Wand Gems - Get "Trigger a Socketed Spell When You Use a Skill" automate EE and cursing.

Orb of Storms - Frost Bomb - Storm Brand"

So, what's going on here. I don't see Hextouch or anything anywhere for this part of the build. Is CI just not self casting Storm Brand with the curses? Are we just letting the wand do what it normally did?

I was thinking of dropping Vile Bastion for Profane Bloom since i already have stun immunity from Chayula amulet.
What do you think of running blasphemy to optimize explosions (not having to use the brand for curses). Maybe going with Blasphemy - Temporal Chains - Vaal Discipline - Enlighten 4 to reach a comfortable mana left and self casting frostbite for bosses.
I think Orb of storms + Tempest on the trigger wand should be able to provide EE uptime without the storm brand, or maybe I could change the orb for the brand.
I'm pretty new (both to the game and to the build) but this is what i thought of, what's your opinion?


I dropped Vile Bastion for Profane Bloom. I still have a 4 link hextouch setup but I gem swap the Hextouch with Blasphamy for mapping. It was an amazing QOL change for me and the clear feels so much better. When I do tough bosses like Sirus or Maven I put the Hextouch back in.


Do you activate only one curse for mapping then? Because I cant see how you can run both and still run vitality, clarity and discipline.

If yes which curse to prefer?

I decided to give SSF a try this league and chose to follow this amazing guide. Having a blast so far, DPS is alright with just over 1 Million if my PoB is setup correctly. Just got a 21/0 Vortex, but I'm not sure wether to use it over my 20/20 because of the missing AoE without Quality.
I'm a bit tempted to switch over to trade because I don't think I will get my hands on a Shav's soon to get that sweet low life damage boost. I hope I can resist a bit more and see how far the SSF experience will take me :)
Here's my gear, maybe someone has SSF-viable suggestions for improvements.



Even managed to get 2 OK-ish cluster jewels, although its a bit of a hassle to get the right crafting bases outside of heist. Tried to avoid this mechanic, mostly because I skipped heist league and didn't want to "learn" it.


I'm surprised that this Belt doesn't increase my Energy Shield by very much at all compared to my


I go from 8169 to 8306, just throwing it out there for people wanting to upgrade to one-- you need a really really good quality Crystal Belt for it to be worthwhile. I spent a few Exalts on that belt and it wasn't much of an upgrade. Just wanting to share my story lol.

I'm doing low life without a Shav, I've been doing it with Petrified Blood. It started out as just a test but turns out to be surprising strong defensively. I'm not following this guide but I do frequent this thread to see what others are doing. PM me if you want to look at my PoB, I'm not comfortable posting it in somebody else's build guide.

Do you use PoB? I always calculate my stats with the new item when I plan to make a bigger investment.
Hello !

I play on console and this build is really cool, thank you !

I have a ton of things to improve, my build is very basic (I suck at crafting) and no big issues in T11 so far.
Hi everyone, have a good day!

Thank you for the guide, ShakCentral, it helped me a lot.

However, I get oneshot kinda often.

I have about 5Ex at the moment. Can you or somebody help me what to buy next? Here is my item
