[3.11]The BLOCKMAN endgame farming build. All content farming (Cheap and tanky)League starter
Welcome, exile. This is my first guide and first post on the forum.
With this build you can FACETANK ALL CONTENT in the game
Hello everyone this build is perfect for a league that monsters will hit you from any side. Can be done as league starter , can easily run all maps with rare gear you can check it doing conqueror's on low budget in the videos.
- Herald of Purity
No longer grants added Physical Damage with Spells and Attacks.
Now grants 9% more Physical Damage at gem level 1, up to 12% more Physical Damage at gem level 20.Should be something around -5%dps
- Some clusters jewels got nerfed.Rip Deep Cuts(BTW i dind't use those on the build)
Cyclone lost it Stun immunity , but with gladiator ascendacy it makes us immunes to stun from attacks that we block and with 5.5k+ life it won't impact on the playstyle of the build.
- Some nodes on skill tree lost a bit of damage on them.
Conclusion: The build stay strong in early and end game , almost same tankness just -5% on physical reduction cause soul of steal got nerfed and less damage but with the right itens +10kk damage is still achievable.

(I was missing the curse and the dread banner on the setup thx CycloneDeezNutz for pointing it out)
how to craft the body armour
Step by step
1-buy the astral plate 6link item level 86+
2-buy the warlord's exalted
3-craft life on the astral , get one empty sufix on it
4-Use the warlord's on it
5- if dont get the mana mod , scour it
6- use pristine+lucent+serrated fossil on it
How to craft the explosive and the mana mod on body armour
1-get a 6link with the -15 mana mod on it and cant have any other warlord's mod on it
2- get a body armour with enemies you kill explode ... need to be the only crusader's mod on it
3-buy one awakening's orb
4- use the awakening on the explode first and them on the mana(use it first on the base you dont want)
Deathless with 3.10 gear.
my gear in 3.10 and new build version
With the explode body armour you dont need the blood explosion ascendancy(gratuitous violence) grab the arena challenger for more attack and movement speed and violent retaliation for more block chance and more damage.
Using one with 4% to phys damage reduction for more tankness
Amulet : Using bladedancer anoint for more aoe on cyclone(less damage than assassination)
flasks: Using a movement speed in the place of the botled faith for more clear speed (ps i am farming more simulacrum than maps)
Jewel:If you can afford get the corrupted blood mod on it
Soon video with this setup on simulacrum
videos on 3.10
All videos are from AgentDaun character using almost same itens that the 3.10 guide
A8 Sirus(worst attempt. First phase without flasks for comparisons):
Thanks for letting me use the videos
low budget/league starter3.10
Body armour any 5-6link with high hp
gloves any with resist and life
boots any with movespeed life and some resist
shield the recovery mod is better than the flat mod , try to get both.
helmet huge dps boost
amulet the anvil is really nice , and cheap more life on block and more block chance
rings one with resist / life and the other need to be a práxis with -8 mana cost , this way cyclone wont cost mana to use
sword ichimonji ireally Strong and give the - mana reserved mod , so this way
we can use pride , blood and sand , precision(lvl1) hereald of purity and dread banner.
total cost= ~ 95c in the first week of the league.
ps: i am using other nodes in ascendacy for league start
painforged>versatile combatant>Violent retaliation> arena challenger
more tankness(82% block chance) and more dps but less clear speed
veritania kill/afk tank with new budget gear and passive(the passive is better in the budget version , change it later when you get better itens)
veritania with this setup
Lot of new clusters jewel for shield and one handed weapon
the best are:
20% chance to gain a Power Charge when you Block
+6% Chance to Block Spell Damage while at Maximum Power Charges
Attack Skills deal 30% increased Damage while holding a Shield
+2% Chance to Block Attack Damage
+2 to Melee Strike Range while Holding a Shield
15% chance to Impale Enemies on Hit with Attacks
Impales you inflict last 1 additional Hit
The defense layer
The damage mitigation comes from:
1 Always fortify up
2 Infused channeling
3 81% phys reduction
4 Endurace charges
5 Blind on hit
6 Always max spell and attack block chance
7 Life gain on block and
8 The Maddening Presence (Maddening Presence is a buff that inflicts Malignant Madness on nearby enemies, reducing their action speed and damage by 10%. )
with all the 8 itens you can tank almost every enconter in the game.
Cant tank Dot damage like shaper beam.
Here you can see the defense of the build on t16 map with veritania influence
The monster and the boss in the video are dying of my block skills , using the cyclone to kill only the metamorph.
1 Pure physical damage with impale
2 blood rage for frenzy charge and leech
3 Vulnerability for damage and more bleed chance , them more explosions
4 Gratuitous Violence , makes enemies that are bleeding take more damage and
5 explode on death , helping with the clear speed.
6 Buffed herald of purity for more damage.
With everthing on +10kk damage can be easily achievable.
My current Gear(3.9)
Body armour:Cyclone>fortify>impale>brutality>melee physical>infused channeling(if you can afford get awakened brutality and awakened melee physical)
Shield:Riposte>life gain on hit> vengance
Weapon:leap slam tempest shield faster attacks
Blasphemy>vulnerability>blood and sand>precision(lvl1)
Ancestral warchief>maim>ice golem>blood rage
Pride>Enlighten(lvl3 Works)>herald of purity>dread banner
Cheap to start
Fast clear speed(blood explosion)
Can easily do all content in the game(including gran masters)
Not a cheap build to min max it.
Can not do Physical Reflect maps.
Cant tank some sources of DOT damage.
budget version(old 3.9)
Body armour: Need the mod"Socketed attacks have -15 to total mana cost"it cost 100c with a good life roll and 6link(can use any 5/6l for starter , just change blood and sand for blasphemy with warlord mark and mana sustain wont be a problem.)
Helmet: Abyssus for the damage. One with nice roll is around 10c
Weapon:Cheap weapon just 1c and good damage for the price
shield:Need to have the mod"recover % of life when you block"paid 10c for this
Rings: rings need to have life , resist and some physical to attacks paid 5c and 6c , 11c for both
Belt: belt of the deceiver give a nice bost of dps , some life and res , and cost only 1 alch
gloves:Need to have Life , some resitances paid 5c for it
Boots:Now that i have already capped all elemental resitances i just need the more life and more movement speed in the boots paid 4c for it
And last the amulet:This slot we use the Impresence (phys version) for free curse cost around 10-15c
Total: 157 Chaos.
Soon i will add i killing conquerors with the 157c version face tanking them.
Veritania Awakening level 8 with the budget gear it can face tank and kill her fast for only 157c
Veritania AW8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XfLzugILFc
t16 Crimsom Temple tankiness show case doing abyss without using cyclone and killing boss without using cyclone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKKI-kqbnTE
Deathless Sirus AW8
Warlord afk tank him
T16 Canyon with poison on hit and warlord influence
Veritania using the low budget version(only 157c in itens no awakened gem or any kind of jewel)
More videos soon
PS: I play the build with cyclone but any melee skill can work on(reave, blade flurry , lacerate etc.) it , for most cases swap infused for multistrike and you are ready to go , you can even use axes and get axes nodes on tree in the place of sword nodes. Can go violent retaliation and arena challenger or go blood explosions both works great.
If you do the build with any other skill and want to share it , pm me in game and i will add it to the guide nick: Theblockman

Are you running around with -60% chaos resistance.
Everyone, literally everyone has complained about chaos damage this league and its the reason any gear with chaos resist is 187 ex and watcher's eye with any PoE chaos resist roll start at 3ex.
I want to try this build, it looks legit but I dont understand how you would survive actual gameplay outside of the bosses in the videos with -60% chaos resistanace.

Hello , i am uploading a video doing t16 with monsters poison on hit with warlod influence and the boss of the map use chaos damage overtime and bleed , both that i cannot block and my life dont go below 80% all map AW 8 .
ps:(with -60 chaos res and i dont have the phanteon that makes me immune to poison.)

Why go with paradoxica and not Facebreaker ?
Facebreaker variant is cheaper and does way more damage
on Feb 19, 2020, 4:14:10 PM
Hi , its true that u can get a lot of damage with face break and , grab the claw damage nodes insted of the swords nodes , but in the current setup os itens for the build using the face break and the rigwald's talisman it leaves 2 rare itens in the build , and all others unique itens dont give any kind of elemental resist so will be need to change some item to get the resist up to 76% or invest in really expesive itens, if i change the any item the loss in the dps will be huge. cyclone with face break will have less aoe and less attack speed and less damage than with paradoxica and will have less block chance and less total life.
this is the POB for facebreak , i wont recommend it : https://pastebin.com/FdT0Gkfh

Added new version for the budget setup , soon will be uploading videos of it.
edit: videos in the guide.

I do not mean to be offensive but in what context would -60 chaos res be game breaking for you? I've done all content deathless outside of uber elder (since im bad with dodging) by a melee with -60 chaos res. I do not delve much but deep delving is an entirely different dimension btw.
At worst, you can just pick an amethyst flask and roll with it.
