[3.13] BUDGET GOLEMANCER for everyone! (Carrion Golem Necromancer build from 1 to Sirus)

Who could have guessed everyone would choose to play Carrion Golems in Heist league?
One of the problems that i encountered while building it up though is EXTREME prices on most golem stuff, like jewels, rings, clusters and such.
So i decided i am gonna find an optimal BUDGET setup that anyone can use, and not just these guys who know how to farm dozens of exalts early on.
The resulting build is probably the cheapest possible, yet powerful Carrion Golem build out there with over 12 Million DPS. Keep in mind this is still not a 10 chaos build, it needs a certain amount of investment, but this investment is like 10 times less than other builds out there and is doable even for newer players.

https://www.angryroleplayer.com/path-of-exile-builds/carrion-golem-necromancer-path-of-exile-build/
V 1.1 Update (15/01/2021):
-Damage is around 15% lower thanx to Carrion and Cluster nerfs. Still good though
-Pob updated for 3.13
======================================================================================
How does it work, in general?
Carrion Golems buffed with Impale, massive attack speed and different auras and buffs, like non-golem minions result in 6 deadly beasts with over 10 attacks per second and combined damage over 10 millions.
Zombies actually deliver about 500k DPS as well, despite being on 1L, just for Feeding Frenzy. If they die = you don’t care and bring them back. They are no meat shields.
Spectres are there for frenzy and power charges, as well as some protection.
======================================================================================
1) PROS
Spoiler

+cheap compared to other Carrion Golem builds
+fast
+not so squishy
+can clear all content
+positive chaos resistance
+7000 ES
+can play as STONE GOLEMS as well (if you wish)
+NO awakened gems!
+NO animated guardian (no need to worry if he dies!)
+truly AFK blight maps and Elder fight

======================================================================================
2) CONS
Spoiler

-Golem jewels and clusters cost considerable amount of chaos at the start of the league AT ALL TIMES.
-squishy in the beginning, till you get more ES and Shav

3) Skill Tree Progression / Path of Building / Ascendancy / Bandits
For the levelling tree please watch the video guide or check PoB!
Spoiler


Path of building:https://pastebin.com/y78dnTKH
IF YOU GET AN ERROR WHILE IMPORTING OR ANY OTHE ERRORS, IT MEANS YOUR POB IS OUTDATED ORIGINAL VERSION THAT IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. YOU NEED A "COMMUNITY FORK" ONE TO MAKE IT WORK:
https://github.com/PathOfBuildingCommunity/PathOfBuilding
Mindless Aggression, Unnatural Strength, Commander of Darkness, Bone Barrier
Bandits: Kill All

======================================================================================
4) Early Levelling Gear / Skills
Spoiler

Levelling is your standard minion build. Zombies..Raging Spirits. Spectres.
I prefer Zombies with Spectres.
Carrion Golems can be acquired at lvl.34
At 35 you should buy this: https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Meginord%27s_Vise . It will solve your Strength problem, till you can afford to buy
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Astramentis

At 41, 2x Clayshapers: https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Clayshaper , grab Golem Commander passive on the tree.
And you can just go into full GOLEM MODE. Don’t forget to keep zombies, as they buff your golems.
Don’t be afraid to spec into temporary +30 str/dex nodes.
There are a few cheap 6L body armours that you can use instead of Tabula:
Cloak of Flame, Ambu’s Charge, Icetomb, Lightbane Raiment. Just pay attention to colors! You need red sockets. I’ve used Ambu’s Charge till i got Shav.

======================================================================================
5) My Actual Gear / End-Game Skills
Spoiler


For Uber Lab enchant: 40% Carrion Golem damage, any of the auras reservation.
Carrion Golems 5L: Carrion.Golem-Melee.Phys-Minion.Damage-Multistrike-Brutality
Carrion Golems 6L: Carrion.Golem-Melee.Phys-Minion.Damage-Multistrike-Brutality-Damage.on.Full.Life
JEWELS are abyssal jewels: Life (early on), ES (later on), minion leech, minions taunt, minions blind (get 2 of each to get around 10% combined chance), minion attack speed, minion damage, chaos resistance.
Watcher’s Eye: Not Needed, anything for damage with auras/defense
=======
SPECTRES:
I recommend
1 Carnage Chieftain
1 Host Chieftain
Both can be found in Act 7 Ashen Fields.
They of Tul - reduces damage taken. Can be found in Thul’s Breach.
Undying Evangelist - protection bubble for everyone. Act 3 Sceptre of God
For 3 Spectres i would use 2 Carnage and 1 Host.
=======
For the gear i would prioritize:
1) Tabula Rasa and any levelling gear
2) lvl.20: Astramentis (it’s only to solve DEX/STR problems for now)
3) lvl.35: Meginord’s Vise
4) lvl.41: 2x Clayshapers
5) lvl.41+: Useful abyssal jewels or Primordial Eminence
6) lvl.52: Profane Proxy if it’s not too expensive
7) lvl.80+: Buy Shavronne Cards https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/The_Offering or just Shav if you are rich. At this point you should be able to respec into full ES and get rid of all life rolls on gear.
8) lvl.80-85: second Large Cluster
9) lvl.90+: Primordial Might and Anima stone, optimizing reservation
10) lvl.91+: +3 Helm for 4th Spectre, enchants, higher ES/chaos res gear

======================================================================================
6) Flasks
Spoiler


Flasks are mostly defense, 5th Flask is optional and can be anything. I decided to Use Kiara’s Determination for all kind of immunities while mapping. Phasing/Onslaught or Dodge flask can be useful.

======================================================================================
7) Pantheon Gods
Spoiler

Major: Brine King / Arakaali
Minor: Shakari

======================================================================================
8) Hardcore Viable or not?
Spoiler

Can be done, but early game will be risky, till you stack enough armour or decent amount of life. Overall not recommended since you don’t really have high levels of mitigation

======================================================================================
9) FOR THE RICH GUYS
Spoiler

If you want to push it further and make it expensive, there are indeed ways to go.
Awakened gems (some can be really expensive like Multistrike and Melee Phys)
Watcher’s Eye with something useful.
+1 Shavronne.
Triple mod Clusters Jewels with Vicious Bite or Primordial Bond.
1% mana reserved Anima Stone and Primordial Might

FAQ
1) What about Stone Golems? Are they good?
Spoiler

They hit WAY slower, but harder and provide a tonn of life regen , translated into ES regen via Zealoth’s Oath. Overall same damage but clear speed is way slower as their “windup” for attacks is literally ⅓ of Carrions.

2) Is it a good league starter?
Spoiler

It was my league starter in (3.12) Heist league, but i would probably not recommend it to very new players as cluster jewels are rather expensive and need some early investments.

3) Is this build really cheap? What about Shavronne??? How the fuck it’s cheap?
Spoiler

I only started using Shav at level 85+ though and before that i used a 6L Ambu’s Charge which costs less than 10 chaos. Before that i used Cloak of Flame which was 6 chaos.
It can be even cheaper, but at the cost of Golem’s dps. I just wanted to achieve great balance and use only important stuff which gives highest necessary boosts, like clusters jewels and Anima Stone (i only added Anima stone at level 93). Shav is just the best option to reserve 2 more auras and get more damage without being wrecked by Chaos and poison degen.
I recommend buying shav from the cards and linking yourself. My total investment was 35c for cards and 400 fusings which i gathered while levelling and early mapping/heists. I recommend throwing all your fusing into shav and nothing else.

ah, thank you so much with that
Cool build!

Quick question, when running Pride and Precision on blood magic, why do you not take CI?

What about using a Solaris Lorica while saving up for a Shavronne's Wrapping?

yeah it's indeed a solid option, but only if your ES pool is higher than life pool
