[3.14 Ready ] N1 Dominating Blow build 7K Life 7 Auras Up Even Stronger From Start to Endgame

Introduction:
Hi guys i have been playing Dominating Blow the last few Leagues and every time i try to trancend the build to higher heights.Here i will showcase you my build for anyone who is interested in a different minion build and has above average knowledge of the game.

The build was originaly inspired by Balor Mage guide a few leagues back and i always tried to improve it and reached to this state i will showcase below.

This build is about trying to stack as many auras as possible being as tanky as possible while maintaining high Life and very hight damage ofc.

Ascendancy Guardian:

3.14 CHANGES HOW TO GET STARTED WHAT HAS CHANGED ETC

Temporary PoB for 3.14 Endgame (Check how to get started down the post)

Spoiler
We start as Templar and we level up with Smite/Holy Flame Totem we get Herald of Purity Act2. We try from the beginning to get a Vaal Summon Skeletons.Act3 we swap Smite with Dominating Blow and we move forward

As for the changelogs i am w8ting for the path of building to update.
For sure we droping Flesh and stone and we also swap Maim back to the main 6L
We got a lot of options even thow they are not good as Flesh and Stone.
We can link instead of Flesh and Stone HoI/HoA/Arctic Armour/Blood and Sand/Vitality instead of Flesh and Stone.The build is quite Flexible.

At the moment i got Divergent guardian on my build with min maxed items and i personally dont like it even thow it gives quite some good buffs its gonna die eventually since at the start of the League we always push for endgame content.

Update:Seems like the changes to mana reserved are huge and we get a realy good buff on unreserved mana according to PoB we will be able to keep all the auras up without the Socketed Mana Reservation on shield which is realy difficult to acquire.
For the moment PoB does not actually calculate Flesh and Stone 35% mana reserved but it does not matter we will be able to keep it

1.How to get started at league before aura Stacking Tree/Item Explanation https://pastebin.com/eZnAcRwc

Spoiler


https://pastebin.com/eZnAcRwc


Passive Tree:
First Passives i get are "Tireless" "Sanctuary" "Glancing Blows"
and the big Dexterity/Intelligence Nodes Below them. Next we move to "Spritiual Aid" (Left and Up) since its gonna take some time untill we get the Scourge early on.
Next move up on the templar tree to "Spiritual Command" and after that i prefer going for "Resolute Techqnique" and "Call to Arms"
Get Basic Jewel Sockets early on only if you struggle with attributes.

Items to look for before aura stacking differences with the PoB i provided:

Body Armour: Craiceann's Carapace Golden Plate (Immune to Bleeding good life some resist excellent armour)

Amulet: without the PoF reduced mana reserved

Shield: does not need the +2 on support (That's before we stack auras only HoP open and Avian)

Passive Tree:We remove Sovereignty reduced mana reserved and the small nodes to use them preferably in life nodes

Amulet:We swap Charisma enchant with Deflection and we now get 75% max projectile block also due to Ascendancy and Glancing Blows.

Before aura stacking we can get higher life pool around 7.5k

Rings: we dont need Purity of Fire on implicit.

Jewel: No need for "Corrupted Blood cannot be inficted on you" since we got Bleed immunity from chest

This version of the Build is capable of deathless Sirus 9 and 100% delirium maps thow they take some time to clear i recommend 60% for the best Time/Value grinding.
As for Maven Invitations:
The Formed: Easy Difficulty
The Twisted:Medium Difficulty
The Hidden:Slightly above Medium Difficulty
The Forgotten: Very Hard
The Feared Not Possible

For the last 2 Maves Invitations Arenas you need to Transend the build to aura stacking as it will be showcased below the thread




ENDGAME ITEMS AURA STACKING

Weapon: A must have weapon for DB to scale dmg





Shield: Recover #% Life on Block +2 max resists(must have) open prefix for +2 to support are the absolute must have and life ofc

6 Aura Shield
7 Aura Shield Extra Reduced Mana reserved


Belt:Max resist as possible and max life so we dont bother a lot with resist.





Helmet: +3 to minion + minion damage and absolute must Herald of Purity 30% reduced mana reserved as enchant.Open suffix so we craft Aspect of the Avian





Chest: Almost perfect Saqawal's Nest



Note Gem Setup below for Maping/End game Bosing

Spoiler

Maping Gem setup:


Sinlge Target Boss Gem Setup:
we can swap Melee Physical with Divergent Maim




Rings:Rings absolute must to have max reduced mana reserved on HoP and one of the rings to have 25 lvl Purity of Fire






Amulet:Purity of Fire reduced mana reserved and "Charisma" Allocation enchant






Boots/Gloves

We use boots with High Life/Chaos Resist/Movement Speed an Open prefix so we can craft "Cannot Be Frozen" The 2 suffixes remaining you adjust them on your needs.

For Gloves High Life/Chaos Resist top priorites open Suffix for Attack Speed.
Culling is optional




Very important we use Glorious Vanity Xibaqua legion jewel so we get reduced elemental damage and +5 to max chaos resist from "Divine Flesh" i got 83% to chaos resistance due to shield and passive tree nodes + +1 from xibaqua converting the medium jewel to the right.

Recommended Medium Cluster Passives to roll for are "Flesh Worship" 10% increased max life and life leech or "Cult of Chaos" for +1 to max Chaos resist and Chaos resistance

Optional Watcher's Eye for 6 aura Setup



A corrupted blood immunity Thread of Hope

Glancing Blows for max attack Block/ Spell block base is 32% while maping using predator and potion reaches 72%



How to Craft Rares for the Build Guide



Helmet:Get an ilvl 86 Elder Base Bone Helmet preferable with HoP(Herald of Purity) reduced mana Reserved 30% enchant so you dont have to run Labs and craft it with Bound Fossil only.If you hit double fossil with pristine it will get Minion Life most probably.We need +3 to Minion gems and Minion Damage 18 or 20.
Make sure it has an Open Suffix for Avian ( Saqawal, First of the Sky)
Even if it does not have life (prefix) you can craft 70 on it with Crafting Bench.



Amulet:Get a Warlord ilvl 75+ minimum .What we need is Life Purity of Fire reduced mana reserved and Chaos Resistance.Use Lucent Fossil or Luccent/Pristine. Purity of Fire is quite easy to hit even with alterations.

Belts:In general belts are cheap dont waste your time/currency into crafting a belt.

Gloves:Buy gloves with Life and Chaos resist make sure you got prefixes full and an open suffix and hit with Warlord exalt for culling. I got it with second try it might take more tries thow its not so easy to get it.

Shields:SPAM with Pristine Fossil.
I made a lot of shields in this league.
Buy single resonators a lot of bases "Shaper ilvl85" and everytime you hit something good with #% recover life when you block just sell it and move to next base.
I crafted my shield myself removed a mod with Harvest to put the +2 gems on it for Enlighten. It was a 500 pristine project

ENDGAME BUILD WHAT ITS CAPABLE



If you reach the same gear like me you can easily destroy Maven Awakening 9 in seconds every phase.The only thing that can kill you is if you fail the memory game and the charge mechanic which is easy to dodge.

Build is Maven's Invitation arena the Feared/Forgotten capable

In Mavens arena the Feared swap Movement Speed potion with a second Forbitten Taste and kill Atziri First she is the only problem in this fight.




Hit me ingame for any questions thanks for checking

Yeah Dom Blow is capable for Sirius without any serius investment just get .

Craiceann's Carapace Golden Plate
Max Chaos resist
Xibaqua Timeless Jewel (Optional)
Is your DOM build different much than the Ghazzy build? If so, make a write up.. I been wanting a strong DOM build forever!

As far as i have checked there exists only my version of Dom Blow atm . One of my friends following also the build. Its kinda hard to write a proper guide atm cause i forgot how to properly edit the thread in order to make a good guide.

I checked Ghazzy guide dont think the numbers he provides are correct.

My build i a lot more tanky uses a lot more game mechanics.

If you only concider my resists 85/78/82/83 plus from xibaqua you get reduced elemental dmg and i am also immute to ignite shock and freeze

My dmg output is insane if you concider that i destroy Maven phace in 2-3 seconds maybe 4-5 if i dont have minions out .

The only struggle is last arena Uber Atziri cause we are melee.

Everyone in their builds dont have Predator Support and thats awful to not have . The build feels so smooth while you control all your minions and you dont lose a lot of dmg. They instead use impale but i got impale on cluster jewels since renewal got nerfed. And we get double dmg from Aspect of the Avian a lot more.

If you study my path of building everything make a lot of synergy.

For boss fights if i want to buff my dmg i swap melee splash to Divergent Maim support.

Looks very interesting and a high lvl build for dominant blow is hard to get runned. With the scourge weapon great. Interesting!
