[3.9] The Saviour | To Perforate or To Be Perforated | 48m DPS without Awakened Gems

the gif maybe take some time to load ;)

Drox, the Warlord on Awakening Level: 8



Intruduction:

Hey there, as soon as i saw the new weapon "The Saviour" and the huge dmg potential on it, i wanted to do a build with it. After i finally i could lay my hands on one i put up some gear together and ended with this build. This Setup will delete EVERYTHING in secconds, but beware: everything will delete YOU too if you are not carefull. So this isnt a beginner friendly build and its by far no cheap build (The Saviour alone costs around 20-30ex). So why you should play it you may ask? Because seeing everything die in secconds is alot of fun! (if you can handle some random oneshots here and there)

I also put many Skills into the PoB so you can see and decide if you want give them a try, nearly all Sword Skills come to at least 10m dps with this setup.

DonTheCrown made a very detailed guide to the Sword: Youtube Link


Dont forget to activate "Always Attack Without Moving". This helps alot and will prevent many stupid deaths!

Pro & Contra

Pro
Millions DPS with every Sword Skill Gem and a damn HUGE more with Perforate
Insane Map clear speed
Blind on hit

Contra
You get oneshotted from time to time (just dont get hit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )
expensive af Build Enabling Sword
Abyssus
barely 5k Life





Ascendancy


We are a true Melee character with millions of dmg, so what other choice we can take than ofc Berserker with the following Passives

Crave the Slaughter
Rite of Ruin
Aspect of Carnage
Flawless Savagery




Bandits

We help alira that dumb witch for her juicy All Res and Multi




Gear & Skill Gems

Overwiev



Detailed with Skill Gems

Our Main Sword will be "The Saviour". Its the new drop from Sirus and it cost a huge amount of exalted. But tbh its worth every single one. The Sword says "Reflection when Equipped" this is like a buff which means you will trigger a 100% Copy from you with 50% less dmg. Because you can have two of them this means the sword alone will double your dps!

Gems: Acesntral Protector -> Multiple Totems -> Culling Strike



Our other sword will be a "Paradoxica". A good rolled one is the BEST offhand which you can get. Its just better than a casual Multicrafted 450pds foil
DPS Comaprison



Because we utilize the Impale mechanic we want one with Impale on hit. Together with Crit Chance and a High Physical DPS roll. Just like This:

Gems: Flame Dash -> Faster Casting -> Blood Magic



My favourite Chest for this build is the Farrul's Fur. With Free Power and Frenzy Charges while in Cat Aspect and alot of life its by far the best chest. If thats out of your budged you can also take a casually loreweave or a Rare one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Gems: Perforate -> Multistrike -> Fortify -> Melee Physical Damage -> Brutality -> Impale



Our Gloves with "Offering to the Serpent" is one of our defensive mechanic with the overleech together with our Amulet. Try to get one with Vulnerability on hit Corruption (or like lucky me without corruption)

You have one free gem here, which i filled with Blood Magic, but beware the degen ;)

with Precision lvl 5 we come to 100% accuracy, no need to reserve more mana!

Gems: CWDT -> Convocation -> Precision LVL 5 -> XXX



Our Helmet will be Abyssus. Nothing special to say its by far the best in slot for a critical melee build if you dont care about your defense lol.

Try to get one with the +2 Spikes Perforate Enchantment

Gems: Pride -> Flesh and Stone -> Blood and Sand -> Enlighten lvl 3+



Our Boots are for defense and Freeze Immunity. If you cant find one with an open Prefix for that craft, you need a flask with it!

The Vaal Molten Shell will be our best friend in terms of defense.
If you see high physical dmg incoming...HIT IT.
If you start metamorph encounter...HIT IT. ;)
If you start the boss fight...HIT IT.

Try to hit the attack speed or life reg enchantment.

Gems: CWDT -> Vaal Molten Shell -> Ice Golem -> Increased Duration



We take a Sygian Vise with ALOT of resistances together with a "Corrupted Blood cannot be inflicted on you" Jewel in it.

Use Resistance Catalysts of you need them.



Focus on T1 Phys + Life Steel Rings. One Multi- and Bestcrafted Ring with All res, Aspect of Cat and -# Mana Costs. And the other with Resistances and also the -# Mana Costs craft.

The -# Mana Cost craft isnt needed but helps ALOT.

Fill them with Attack Damage Catalysts

Our Amulet will be the Carnage Heart to counter the reduced leech from our gloves and it also offers alot nice stats like attributes, all res, dmg while leeching.

We take the Forceful Skewering Annointment for additional Impale Chance and Damage.

Fill it with Life/Mana Catalysts for addtional Leech Rate and Damage



Our Jewels want have Crit Multi and Life on it. And you want a Watcher's Eye with the "Cannot be Blinded while affected by Precision" modifier together with a "Pride" one. Best in Slot would be "Impales you inflict last 2 additional Hits while using Pride"



Our Flasks are a Bleed Immunity Life Flask, Silver Flask with Curse Immunity (you can also take Basalt for more phys res), very fast Quicksilver Flask. Together with the Lion's Roar and the Bottled Faith (this Flask is nuts).






Skill Tree

What is Path of Building
Path of Building is a great offline build planner for Path of Exile. Just download the latest version and dont forget to hit the update button for the newest version. After that you can import the Link i posted:
Import

I highly recommend to use the fork from LocalIdentity. You can easy switch to his PoB by editing a single line. All the infos you need are found HERE


To calculate the dmg for Perforate correctly you need to take the PoB DMG x the Number of Spikes. And this result x2 because of "The Saviour".

The Pantheon

Major Pantheon

The Soul of Arakaali with 5% reduced Damage taken from Damage Over Time. You can upgrade this Soul with some nice additional effects like 30% reduced Effect of Shock & Shock duration and 25% Chaos Resistance against Damage Over Time.

Minor Pantheon

The Soul of Shakari is also a good Chaos reduction choice together with the upgraded Immune to Poison.

not sure if we took a look at the same pob, but mine says 3m dps per perforate spike, with 8 spikes this is 24m. and with the saviour, which double the dps with the minions, means that 48m dps ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

and the rage is more than important with the stun immunity and gives alot dmg ...

yes it will, but you will loose around half the dmg comapred to berserker...which is still more than enough for the whole content

How do you get the "Cats Stealth" Buff (it is enabled on PathofBuilding).
Never worked with those cat buffs and im confused because i can´t find a reason why it is enabled (the Famul´s Fur alone shouldn´t activate it alone)

One of the rings grants the skill.
