Why?


Ah. CWDT has level requirements for the gems it is attached to. There is a "Maximum Level of
Supported Skills" stats on the gem itself: http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Cast_when_damage_taken

If Immortal Call is level 33, and the CWDT gem is only at 32 for max level, it will not trigger Immortal Call.

Ahh, now I understand, thanks.

Anyone wants to comment? I just switched. I'm doing Dominus Merciless with the build without arctic armour, can't seem to support the cost.

Can u link ur passives and gear?

And whats ur total mana/free mana/mana regen? I find that ~40-50 mana regen on each jewellery piece massively increases ur total mana regen. It jumps my regen from 93 to 198, with clarity aura. (without running discipline) With discipline, it is around some 230.

If u can afford it, a cloak of defiance wud be a great addition to this build for the extra damage mitigation and mana/mana regen buff. It might even prevent us from branching into the duelist area for MoM and IR, although we do have to sacrifice quite a few totem nodes this way.

Also, the totems seem to be dying too quickly. Have u picked ironwood and the totem resistance nodes in totemic mastery cluster? And which level is ur flame totem gem?

My gear




Total mana/Free mana/Mana regen: 2779, 1290, 193.2 (all w/discipline)
I have Ironwood and the rest because my previous build already had those. My Fire Totem gem isn't that high level though, just 16. Getting around 195 mana regen per second. Maybe my weakest point is my discipline gem.

I just tested out Three dragons helmet with low life + crit flame totem and the damage is just insane. Pretty much shock and freeze every single mob. So far, map bosses I've encounter have died so fast I couldn't see if they were shocked or not. Piety was near dead before she even started to move. Pretty good item for a huge DPS boost if you can afford losing the ES stats from a helmet.


Can you explain what your passive tree looks like for the Three Dragons helmet? I borrowed it from a friend, but I couldn't see the fire totems shocking anyone. Does it only shock on "crit"?

Hi, i notice that in your passive skill tree, you have avoided all the +% dmg to totemn nodes. Is there a particular reason for this?

Also, do you mind linking your defensive stats as i seem to be dying a lot using exactly the same build as you.

My current dps of Flame Totem self buff is 1827, may I know the damage of your Flame Totem as well? Thank you.

I can't really tell you why nightblade avoided some of the damage to totem nodes, but I can tell you why I wouldn't be taking them. Immolation nodes is 42% fire damage, which is 10.5% fire damage per node. Not really worth taking extra totem damage nodes from what I can see.

If we give up the Thick Skin health nodes, we can probably use those points to put into the remaining totem damage nodes. But like how the famous saying goes in the MMORPG world, "A dead DPS is 0 DPS" is also applicable here. You can never go wrong with more health. Sure we take a teensy bit longer to kill, but we are still there, doing damage instead of hanging around in town due to a death.

My armour is around 5k, and health is around 2.8k, but it will probably be going down as I intend to replace my jewellery with more mana regen. What is your play style like? Have you looked at your own play style? Are you a bit too aggressive, taking too much damage? Or are you not responding fast enough to threats and potion spam? I'm very defensive with my build, and I usually run around a lot, blocking corridors with totems, and luring dangerous monsters out from doorways into my totems.

We have Mind over Matter to buffer a lot of damage and we also have really insane mana regen. I also have a health pot that grants me increased running speed which helps me to run away from extremely dangerous situations after my lightning warp fails due to interrupts. I try not to take damage that I do not have to. A totem's death is much better than my own.
8% totem damage will be superior to 8% fire damage or even 10% elemental damage nodes because of the fact that almost 30-40% of our damage is chaos dmg, and totem damage is the only way to boost it.

I picked most of the totem dmg nodes in the 105 point passive tree i think. If not, I will update it to include those. I just rushed the life nodes first.

Edit : I did in fact miss out the 8% damage nodes earlier. Updated the passive tree in the guide with these nodes included, skipping fire walker.
