[3.24] CWDT Ward Loop Scion, very easy guide [15 divines]

This guild will teach you how to craft and make the most amazing build in POE.

3.24 Change

Now that 20+ flask quality is obtained through corruption of flasks, we will ignore 20+ quality
Instead we will use the Tattoo of the Tawhoa Herbalist to achieve permanent flask for budget builds.

Use Corrupted Flask only for high budget builds.

Also don't forget to enchant your flask before you corrupt it

Network Mode Lockstep

Change this option to Lockstep
Go to main menu and change this, this is very important
Without this option, the loop will miss casts and slow down, less dps


How The Build Works


When you take 3272 damage, Level 20 CWDT gem will cast all the spell gems linked to it.
Our goal is to take 3272 damage every 0.2 seconds and not die.


Expedition items have Ward. Ward will absorb the damage done to you

If you have 1500 ward, and a monster hits you for 2000, only 500 damage will go to life and your ward will disappear, it breaks. Ward will be recharged after 5 seconds

Olroth's flask



When this flask is on, your ward will not break/disappear
The goal is to permanently have Olroth's flask effect

Permanent Olroth's flask effect

So we want to have Olroth's permanently on, to do this we use Brutal Restraint The Traitor

https://www.poewiki.net/wiki/The_Traitor_(keystone_passive)

Using the traitor keystone and 1 cluster jewels which give us high flask duration, we can get permanent Olroth's effect

The traitor keystone works when you have 2 empty flask slots, means you can only use 3 flasks.
You can use 4 flasks at high budget, but we need at least 1 empty flask slot

Heartbound loop ring explained



We Summon Skeletons, and when a skeleton dies, the ring will do 420 damage to you.
This damage will be absorbed by Ward


Forbidden Rite is a skill that will deal damage to you on cast
If you cast Forbidden Rite 4 times, you will die by suicide, it does a lot of damage

But as long as your ward is more than Forbidden Rite self-damage, you will take no hit to life pool. Ward will absorb the damage.

To Dust Jewel + Reduced Skill Duration Effect


Summoned Skeletons last for 20 seconds, this is not useful.
We will use To Dust and Reduced Skill Duration on passive tree to make Skeletons last only 0.2 seconds

Skeletons die every 0.2 seconds and deal damage to you because of Heartbound Ring and then trigger CWDT gem.

We cast spells every 0.2 seconds! This is about 5 casts per second. This is crazy high cast speed.

Olroth's Resolve Flask
Olroth's Resolve




Buy a flask and make it 20% quality. No need to corrupt it for low budget builds.

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Necropolis/kGQddJKT5


Its extremely important to use Herbalist Tattoo.
Check PoB on where to apply the tattoo, its below Scion Area, near Ranger area.

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Necropolis/P98GPJJFL

Check flask uptime using the calculator

https://returnx.github.io/cwdt/

The best Olroth's Roll is 42 or less increased flask charges used.
It will say at the top 56 charges consumed on use. This is the best.
Get the best roll if you a high budget. Otherwise you stick to something with 47% or less. However the calculator should help with any roll.



To Dust Jewel




Filtered for 14 and above, remove filter if you want something different.
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Affliction/Q2gVZKOHw

We will buy 4 To Dust

The total "Reduced Skeleton Duration" should added up to 74% exact, no more, no less.
Please see the screenshot below.

Exactly 74% Reduced Skeleton Duration

Get any combination of the below.

14,20,20,20
15,19,20,20
16,18,20,20
16,19,19,20

More Jewels
Brutal restraint


The number does not matter for now, its a future upgrade. It must be Balbala.

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Sanctum/ypmdYKWiR

Buy this and put it in your tree and check all affected notables.
Make sure your Jewel does not grant you Alchemist's Genius buff, this buff will reduce your ward and stop the loop.
Its pretty rare, if you have it, simply buy a new one.

Flask effect duration jewel
In 3.20 Flask mastery got removed, so we will need at least one jewel with increased flask effect duration modifier

If your Olroth's flask is not always on, then use two of these jewels.



Jewels, Resistance


This will help you cap resistance, you can get % life and also cold damage or ele damage.

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/GerDvOTb

With life %

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Sentinel/4e08MS9

Cluster Jewels




Large cluster - cold damage or spell damage

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/OEVKeQlHE

Blanketed snow and Stormrider are good notables

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Kalandra/dVqeewRUJ

Minion cluster
Buy a 4 passive minion life cluster.

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Affliction/B9BJneki8

Craft - Spam alterations till you get Blessed Rebirth.

Flask clusters

We need 1 of these clusters, both of them are correct, you can buy any of these examples

25 effect and Distilled Perfection both are equal.

Fasting + 25 effect
Fasting + Distilled perfection



Crafting - Buy the following base, level 50+, 6 passives.
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Crucible/3e9rZ20u5

Once you buy it, just use chaos orbs.
Getting (fasting + distilled) or (fasting + 25) is very easy.

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Affliction/3GKRoPJi5


2R-2G-2B is best for budget
2R-1G-3B is good for endgame Crit capped.
1R-1B-4G also great
1R-2B-3G also great



Weapon

The best choice is The Annihilating staff

The Annihilating staff



Buy a 5-link if you cannot afford 6-link

Other options available, not recommended, unless you are very low on budget and cannot cap your resistances. This staff penalizes your resistances heavily.

If all three suffixes are horrible, then use Eldritch chaos

Repeat the process till you got good resistance rolls in the suffix


Buy URL, these are extremely basic boots. Get more resistance if you can afford.

Skeleton Gems

These are gem links when using 2 heartbound loop rings



Summon Skeleton
It should be level 11
You can vendor the gem with Scouring orb to reduce level

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Affliction/BJLZOqjS8

Don't Level Up Gems in helm, keep them fixed at the same level

CWDT level 5
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Affliction/V5rvnDrup

Summon skeleton level 11 - Forbidden rite 1 - Cast When Damage taken 5



The levels of these gems should be fixed, do not level it up

CWDT must be 5, skeleton must be fixed at 11

Don't change these in the helm, or else you need to do math



Gem links


3.23 Updated Gem CWDT Levels

If you are using Skin of the loyal, CWDT in body armor will be level 19.
If you are using Skin of the lords, CWDT in body armor will be level 18.

Gem links are flexible

Mandatory - Ice Spear + GMP + CWDT

Other Gems -

Red

Inspiration
Cruelty
Empower


Green
Cold Penetration
Added Cold Damage
Hypothermia

Blue
Creeping Frost
Increased Crit Damage







Awakened Elemental focus is not recommend, it will disable freeze from Ice Spear.

You can use any gem link that you can get your hands on.

Hypothermia, Awakened Cold Penetration, Awakened Added Cold Damage, Empower, Increased Critical Hit Damage.


CWDT Gems


Cast When Damage Taken - Body Armor

It should be 19/20 for Skin of the Loyal
It should be 18/20 for Skin of the Lords

Reason is Skin of the lords has +2

CWDT should never go above level 20, if you make CWDT level 21, build will fail.

Also don't link CWDT gem to Righteous fire, flame dash or phase run
Make gloves 3-link and use Righteous fire in gloves
Or use RF 21 in gloves, that way CWDT 20 won't tirgger RF

Helm and glove Implicits
See POB please, just spam greater ichor and lesser ember till you get it



Gloves - Cold exposure with Greater ichor, and lesser ember for unnerve
Helmet - Spell damage with ichor and ember for lightning damage.

Blue Ichors - Shock Reduction is great on helm. Along with Small Pantheon Garukhan you can be shock immune. Use

Red Embers - Also some builds use Phys Damage Taken recouped as Mana.
Red Embers - You can go with Damage to cold spells or increased effect of frostbite curse in 500 divines version. Also lightning damage on helm implicit will help to shock enemies.


Life And Chaos Resistance Calculator

https://returnx.github.io/cwdt/

But most budget builds can get only 1150 ward, mid-tier 1250, top-tier 1350

Forbidden Rite does a lot of damage.

To reduce forbidden rite damage, we will crafting chaos resistance on items, or use tree/jewels.

Use this calculator to balance your life pool and chaos resistance.

The more life you have, the more chaos resistance you will need. Otherwise you kill yourself.
If you have 3k life and -60 chaos, you will die by suicide.

Play with the calculator for your build.

For the One Ring Upgrade, you will want more than 1250 ward, so watch out when crafting your items. And use the calculator.

Flasks

Very important - Use only 3 flasks with Brutal Restraint Traitor, 4 if you have high budget

If you have a problem with resistances, the use Bismuth flask and a quick silver flask with additional resistance suffix

Resistance and curse reduction flask

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Sentinel/3X3Mn8kF5
https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Sentinel/v4k7JaDHE



In this build you can only use 3 flasks not use more than 3.
You will die if you use more than 3 flasks


Pantheon is very important

Pantheon

Soul of Brine King

Soul of Yugul - Curse reduction
Soul of Garukhan - Shock reduction

Other Pantheon options will brick the build

Second slot weapon swap

Buy 2 Wands from Act 1 Nessa
And use Essence of insanity


https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/exchange/Sanctum/ZKd7fQ
You can put cast when damage taken and portal in 2nd weapon


Start Stop Loop
Swap weapons to start, Press X

To stop remove belt and put it back on
Or you can remove helm for one second

Map mods

You can do reflect and no regen maps

Works

Elemental reflect - you are reflect immune
No Regen - We don't use regen, we use recoup


Warning

60% less Recovery Rate of Life and Energy Shield

For these maps, disable RF, blood rage
Try to get ignite immunity and corrupted blood immunity for these maps


CANNOT DO - RED ALERT

Reduced cooldown recovery rate
Reduced flask charges gained



Mana problem, two or more swaps to start loop

Mana problem

Mana issues -- you require multiple swaps to start loop

Zero,
Did you forget mana recoup nodes on your tree?

First,
If your ward is low and have Mind Over Matter allocated, then you will run out of Mana
Remove Mind Over Matter
You can use the calculator to check, Forbidden rite damage must be less than your ward with flask on

Second,
In your helmet, the first socket should be blue and put Summon skeleton is that socket

Third,

If you still have this problem, then put your skill gems in the last socket of weapon and body armour.
The skill gems should not be first gem in weapon and body, put support gems first!


Loop Speed


Skeletons and Ice Spear should refresh at same speed

"
Half Loop, Half DPS



"
Full loop, Full DPS



"
If you followed the guide correctly, you will have full dps
But in case its not, please use calculator to fix speed


https://returnx.github.io/cwdt/


Loop not working - Checklist
Please come to discord server and show what's wrong
https://discord.gg/2s5nSYZSS7

In group play,
Determination, Malevolence aura fail the loop
Physical damage reduction, endurance charges reduce your damage or stop loop

Reason for loop not working

1. Did you forget to craft Cooldown recovery rate on your belt?

2. Check your "To Dust" total skeleton duration reduction for 9% cdr
3 jewels should be 34% total with using Window of Opportunity in passive tree
4 jewels should be 59% total without Window of Opportunity in the tree.

For 27 CDR, total To Dust must be 34 and Window of Opportunity passive + less duration mastery

See your CDR in the MISC Tab in Character Sheet

3. Gem in Helmet
11 Anomalous Skeleton - Forbidden Rite 1 - CWDT 5

4. Use the calculator to balance your life pool and chaos resistance

5. Armor on your gear? Check Defense tab, remove armor from items

6. Make sure you have more than 2550 life for rare ring setup

7. Blank Space

8. Replica Pure Talent will break the build

9. Pantheon, should be Brine King/Arakaali and Yugul/Garukhan or loop won't work

10. Get Pathfinder Ascendancy

11. Does the keystone on your body armour break the build?

12. Network mode should be Lockstep in Game options

13. Make sure you are using Survival Secrets Jewel

14. Did you forget to craft your Swap weapon? Craft and use in second slot!


Dying in maps

Dying a lot in middle of map


1. Use the flask calculator to check your Olroth's flask works https://returnx.github.io/cwdt/

2. Check all points are allocated in two medium flask cluster, both must be 6 passive clusters

3. Compare your medium cluster with the ones in guide & POBs

4. Check your tree for Essence extraction is allocated, its near mind over matter.

5. Make sure you did not accidentally equip 4th flask or 5th flask

6. Make sure Traitor keystone is allocated in the passive tree with Balbala Timeless Jewel

7. Check if Pathfinder ascendancy is allocated

8. Olroth's flask enchant should be "Reused at end of flask effect"

Upgrades More


Priority List of upgrades

1. Gem Quality
Make gems 20% quality

2. Weapon Enchant
Get the harvest weapon enchant which gives 1% elemental damage per 2% quality
Make your weapon 20% quality or 30% quality using TFT Hillock Service or farm it yourself from Betrayal Jun Missions.

3. Awakened Gems
Awakened Cold Penetration
Awakened Added Cold damage

Level these gems to at least level 3-4 quickly. You can use the harvest beast Wild Brambleback to level them up.

4. Level 100
Get to level 100 using 5-way carry
This is the best upgrade you can do, more passive points is more damage

6. Amulet

Catalyst the Amulet if you haven't done already, Turbulent catalyst on The Pandmonious

Change anoint to Whispers of Doom and use Frostbite Curse

If you don't find Sigil of Power useful, just remove that.

You can go for a +2 Rare Amulet or Ashes of the Stars with Whispers of the Doom.
You will soon see that +1 to all skill gems is required when you switch to Rare Ring.

And 10% flask charges gained on Timeless jewel. These are easy to come by
Use this tool to find a Balbala jewel

https://vilsol.github.io/timeless-jewels/

Also get the belt to 20% reduced flask charges used and

Olroth's should be 6.4 duration, 28% quality or more.
And also best a good roll Olroth flask. 56 charges used ( 40%,41%,42% increased charges used)

More than 43% is bad, its for budget builds







Also try to get 15% or more flask effect duration suffix on your belt.

The discord has a CraftBook for crafting such a belt

Plus you can get 10% on such rare jewels.
You can consider adding two of these jewels.

Rare Ring


3.23 Requirements for Rare ring

Level 20 Summon Skeletons, two options
1. Using +1 to all skill amulet
2. Using Empower level 2 support
3. Buy Level 20 Summon Skeletons

Ward Recommended - 1270 or more

It will work with 1100 ward as well, but you will take damage to your life.

Budget Example
Gem links

Helm
Level 20 Summon Skeletons + CWDT 20/20 + Empower Support 2

Gloves/Boots
Forbidden rite 1 + Normal CWDT 12


High Budget
Amulet, +1 to all skill gems

Helm
Level 20 Summon Skeletons + Level 20 Cast When Damage Taken + Snipers Mark

Gloves/Boots
Forbidden rite 1 + Normal CWDT 12

Use the calculator to adjust life and chaos resistance.
You also want more than 1200 ward.

Examples, unset ring is the best




Dying Sun

Once you have high resistances using rare ring, time to buy Dying Sun


I want to stress an important point, for you to be able to use Dying Sun, you also need good suffixes on your helm/gloves/boots.

High resistance suffix, this way you can remove Bismuth flask and use Dying Sun.


Empower 4 and gems

Just buy Empower 4 support and upgrade all your gems if you haven't yet.

Awakened GMP

This is a lot of damage, buy this if you can


Watcher's Eye

Hatred critical - You can attempt to divine for more than +1.5

https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Archnemesis/MQQLMTJ

Forbidden Flame and Flesh


Deadeye is the best, or you can buy pathfinder and use deadeye in the tree.

Inquisitor is a good option
Occultist if you can fit another curse.


Omniscience


Switch to Omni when you have more than 100 divines.
You will need to remake all your items and also change your tree and cluster.

Crystallised Omniscience



Buy Unnatural instinct as well with this ugprade

It goes here, make sure to change the tree pathing.



With the amulet updated, you need to change your helm and gloves to have attributes instead of resistances

Omni Helmet
Craft Dex on it in the suffix



https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Archnemesis/zv9Zkmvc4
Omni gloves dex/int

Crafted Int on it in suffix


https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Sanctum/6392k50HG


That's all folks for now.

Yes I checked, you have done everything perfectly.
Except you need to craft cooldown recovery on the belt

Now you just need more levels

What you need is more life. you need around 1700 life. See image for exact life.
Here is the math for it

Next steps for you:

Anomalous Summon Skeletons

More Ward
Drop one Heartbound Loop for a stat stacked ring.
You hit the 9% CDR. Go for the 27%.

Get a Skin of the Lords. Can get one that benefits you defensively or offensively. Just make sure it doesn't work against you. Even if it provides no benefit, the + skill is good.

Divergent Ice Spear.

Belt - Reduced Charges Used and Increased Flask Effect Duration. Make sure they're both T1.

Eldritch Currency the gloves, helms and boots.
Inflict Cold Exposure/Unnerve - Gloves.
Spell Damage/Critical Strike Chance for Spells - Helm. There's a couple you can use here.

What are the requirements to drop one of the rings? Is there a minimum life / mana or anything to reach first as it's going to reduce the damages taken?

Here check this out


Level 11 skeleton gem

3625 life normal cwdt
2507 life divergent cwdt

Spoiler



Level 21 Skeleton, 4 skeleton


Spoiler



So the combo that works best are

Level 21 skeleton and Normal CWDT

Level 11 Skeleton and Divergent CWDT


"
Level 11 skeleton and Normal CWDT with 3625 life is a bad idea, because your Forbidden rite will do 2300 damage, your ward is 1600, even with mind over matter, you will die in maps.

My build is a little different. I was able to have it up and running with lower ward and life. Ward and life were probably around 1200-1400 each. Only summoning 3 skeletons.

The CWDT and 11, I've never had to have that much life. I get the math adds up, but I think there's a lot that's missing.

CWDT 9 - 1221
Forbidden Rite 12

Anomalous Skeletons 11
CWDT 5 - 812
Less Duration 5

I'm able to proc all skills with CWDT 20/21.
Damage recoup as life and mana keep it topped off.

It's all the recoup stacked and spread through MoM/Life/Mana that buffers a crazy amount.

Just some things I can't facetank. Are you able to facetank everything?

Gotta give you credit for CWDT and Portal on swap. Playing CWDT for a while now and never thought of that. That's genius!
