- The Reservation Mastery that grants increased Life Reservation Efficiency of Skills now has a value of 20% (previously 30%).
- Eternal Blessing Support now grants Supported Skills 0% increased Aura Effect at gem level 1 (previously 19% reduced), up to 19% increased at gem level 20 (previously 0% increased).
You may run into some problems after the changes.
Problem: We can't use Determination - Zealotry - Purity of Elements at the same time without getting some reserve efficiency.
Solution: We need "2% increased Reservation Efficiency of Skills" mod on 3 jewels. (Implicit)
Also Clarity must be level 1.

Looks good, do you need the added accuracy gem? What about a mana leech, inspiration, innervate or a blind?
What about controlled destruction, possibly not critting with Mana bond?

am I missing something, or why is POB showing only 335 STR?
Isn't that too less to wield Mjölner, or where does the rest come from?

The Atziris Foible has 25% reduced attributes.
I am testing out an attribute version with Astramentis and Cyclopean Coil.

I found your comment on some Arakali's fang build, then went to your profile and saw Hierophant character.
It looked interesting to try, so I jumped to guides and what a surprise, it is your guide lol.
Gonna try to make it work somehow with 15 ex, at least for mapping in high yellow and red.
Well, for now, I am dying too much even in low yellow maps.
Will update later if I continue to play character, probably will because i love mjolnir.
Yes, I have trouble staying alive too :/
I'm also to ignorant to know what I'm doing wrong?? :)
But I love the build and keep on trying!
-Edit: Last lab did a lot to survival :)
Oohh.. Look at that!

Do you have the storm drinker passive from the large cluster jewel? That provides energy shield leech for the build which can help survivability quite a bit. Also, the awakened cast while channeling prevents stuns which is really important and you probably also want chaos resist. I don't have chaos resist but once I got the leech and all my ascendency points I was able to transition to red maps although it's a bit precarious in t16s. Some of the jewels in the POB provide over 1.5m dps and 2k energy shield and I'm still missing those.
cool build going to give it a try....however that watchers eye is super rare and not even available. Which mod should take priority? As getting them both is hard to find atm. ty!
Yes, after final lab and spec into Storm drinker in cluster things starting to get better :)
I also changed controlled destruction support to concentrated effect support to manabond and innervate support to arc. It feels stronger, but I don't know? :)
Oohh.. Look at that!
