[3.16] Ignite Discharge Charges on block Juggernaut


Juggernaut being my favorite ascendancy and RF/Discharge my favorite spells I spent some time on PoB trying to make it good enough to farm maps as a league starter.

I would like to build something around the "charges on block" nodes (Whirling Barrier and Swagger).

So here is my attempt for this :D


This build probably isn't viable for bossing.

With this setup at lvl 80 with map entering gear (trade for kaom's and searing touch 4 or 5 links), you should have around 500k dps with 65 aoe radius.

Lvl 92+ with some investment you should reach 1m5 dps with 80+ aoe radius (almost the whole screen).

Defensive stats (depending on level):
180% to 211% hp on tree
75%/34% block chance (Glancing Blows)
77/76/76 res
30k to 40k armour
2% life recover on block
9 endurance charges (not just after Discharge :D but you could Enduring cry just after if mobs are still alive)
2% life recover on ignite (mastery)
2% life recover on kill (Cinderswallow)
500 to 700 hp/sec

and everything from Juggernaut ascendancy

Discharge - Cruelty - Combustion - Inspiration - Burning Damage - Efficacy

I plan on taking gems in this order from 4L to 6L.
Cruelty: really good for mapping as Discharge is hitting quite hard (from 200k to 500k depending on level/gear) so it should be easy to reach the +40% more dot, this also works well with new dot mult mastery (30% increase cruelty effect).

Inspiration: I want to take this gem to give us some %crit on Discharge to have more chance to proc EO. On this setup, you should have around 27% crit chance (I should probably try to aim for a little bit more)

Combustion: to reach 90% ignite chance

Before committing to this and probably miserably failing, could you please give me your opinion?

My main concern: my gameplay is totally dependent from being hit to generate charges...

Thanks for your time have a nice league start :D.

Ps: I like non-meta builds, I just want to farm red maps with some big aoe, Jugg is life, Jugg forever

What about eye of Innocence amulet? You wouldn't be so dependent on getting hit, you could generate charges easily. At least it worked for me a couple of leagues back, I guess it still works now...
