3.11 | Carry Me Golems | Carrion/Stone Golem Elementalist | Very Tanky and High DPS summoner

what i mean is punishment is applied when an enemy hits your golems, not just simply being under the effect of it. Rather have a vulnerability enchant than a punishment enchant if you're going for dps (but enfeeble enchant is almost always better than either of those).

and bosses have natural curse resistance of usually 50% or up. So if ur looking at boss dps, your enchant will be sliced up whereas a flesh offering enchant isn't effected at all

also if you are using blasphemy curse aura in this build, you are missing out on some serious dps auras like flesh and stone + maim or dread banner which offer much more dps and more consistent dps

You also seem to be using 3 curses, when only 2 apply at once...AND you specced into Whispers of Doom when you already have it enchanted on your amulet lol

How does Aspect of the Spider from gloves fit in? Even with Sovereignty, with 4 auras on, thats 99% mana reduction. Theres almost nothing left to cast anything.
@fruitycakes: i have 12 jewels with 1% mana reserve in order to run Aspect with zero mana left. I didn't take any mana reserve nodes. Pride + Flesh/stone (maim) + Dread Banner + aspect of the spider + 12% mana reserve = 100% for me

All of my skills are free, and if i need to resummon I turn off pride. Only issue with my setup is I don't have enough mana to cast Warcry, so instead I get endurance charges through Enduring Focus medium cluster

If you go for 4 auras, you need to get reduced mana cost on both your rings

What you think about replace Cold Iron Point to Clayshaper for extra 2 golems?


Don't forget that those 2 CIP are giving +6 level to your Stone/Carrion golems and ALL phys gems, like Pride, Dread Banner, F&S, etc, that's HUGE. I don't have PoB right now to test it, but i'm pretty sure that's a damage loss even if you have +2 golems.
whoa I'm actually mildly impressed...

some bs t15 map with slight boosted damage mods and influence managed to spike all my spectres, my animate guardian, and all my zombies at once. fucking intense

One simple gem swap and my damage scaled way up. Linked Flash and Stone with Maim and put Stone golem in 6 link, dropping multistrike. Carrion Golem > Stone Golem > Impale > Melee Phys > Minion Damage > Brutality.

Carrion Golem damage didn't decrease much with loss of multistrike. But Stone Golem DPS went way up with impale, brutality, melee phys, and minion damage. Double 5 link golems working good for me.


That seems like a bad idea...
It might have increased your stone golem damage, but presumably you only have one of them, and you are mostlyscaling around carrion golem damage?
Not sure why it's not showing, but multistrike should be a very big dps increase for the carrion golems.


Remember that Multistrike make your golems hits repeat 2 aditionnal times (3 for the awakened version) without having to wait for the cooldown of the skill used by the golem, and considering that Stone Golems are naturally slow at attacking, removing MS from their link will basically cut down their damage by a ton, and it also break the attack rate/cooldown ratio...

Lets say your Stone Golems have a 2.5 attack rate. The formula with MS is
(1 / 2.5) * 3 = 1.2. Which means that your cooldown needs to be slightly under 1.2 second, which is fine. If you remove multistrike you have the following formula :
(1 / 2.5) = 0.4. Which means that your cooldown needs to be under 0.4 second which i don't think is possible to achieve without screwing up the whole skill tree to socket litterally Harmony everywhere lol.

Even if PoB says it OK, that's on paper. For Carrion Golems, it's not as worst but still a huge cut down in damage.

I managed to do it with enlighten 4 linked to all other auras. You can take a look at my bigGolemToaster character in Standard league as an example. But, you cant use CIPs, you need a 2h weapon (staff, mace, etc.)

You could try stacking Medium Cluster jewels with Dread March + Renewal (Best of both world, damage and defense). I was running 4 of them, and since then my zombies, spectres, ag, golems, etc. none of them ever went close to 50% life. And i wasn't even using Sacrifice neither Indomitable Army, but was using +2 Minions gems and Lvl 20 Minion Life helm for zombies and spectre (not AG), but you can't do that since you're using RS i believe ?

Did A8 Sirus storm diving, 100% juiced Delirous T16 maps, etc. it runs smooth with this setup.

Well, after the update yesterday, all kinds of things were invisible... maybe there was an invisible physical reflect mod on that map? ;)

Or was the map Racecourse, and you ran afoul of the minotaur guy's reflect aura?
