Would spell cascade help clear speed at all, or would it reduce the damage too much?

Hey Guys,

kind of a noob here, only my second league and having a blast with this build so far, though i have some questions. I am at TIV/V Maps atm, and not sure exactly how to make the pure ES Leech Build work tbh.

I tried switching to CI before heading into Maps, but got wrecked really hard, dying constantly. I am not sure what i am doing wrong tbh. Should i just upgrade my gear?

Also i have been running with the Heatshiver Helmet for a while, which seems to also be a natural fit for the build during leveling, but i am not sure if i should switch it out for another helmet now. TBH i kinda have trouble finding "Budget" 6S/5L Chests so i can shuffle around my skillgems and include the whole missing fortify chain, which would help probably.

Any tips would be appreciated :)

    Read the Build Theory section if you need to understand how the build works. You probably didn't take Ghost Reaver, or just had unmaxed resists.

    Your body armor, helmet, gloves and boots all need to be replaced. You need to prioritize Int. See the Gear section. You can check the gear in my profile, I'm using the items I bought on day 2 of the league for those slots, 1-2c each.

    I guess you can farm uber lab pretty smooth?

    With scion now, a thought on the use of Pure Talent (jewel) and the ability to go scion Path of the Templar and spec the beginning node of Templar. I've tested and the ele pen shows on the offense tab.

    You lose the scion shadow 20 dex/int node and a jewel slot.

    You gain 2 passives (1 takes the 14% ele node), 25 int, and 5 ele pen.

    Seems like a net win to me. Thoughts?

    Could also just use 3 passives to get to Templar start and use the jewel.

    Yeah, that jewel should be OK, I almost forgot about it, and it's 20c right now. It's better than most jewels we can get. According to PoB, it's as good as a 55 value jewel, i.e. very top end rare.

    Take the 3 points to the Templar start of course, don't change the Ascendancy.

    I'll add this option to the guide.

    No, the damage is still fine for trash in any tier. SC is fantastic for clearing, it makes it a lot faster.

    Thank you, was just about to edit my post because I missed a section in your guide that says you can use it =p

    New video: First Uber Lab

    I had exactly 6000 ES at lv 83 with lv 18 Discipline and cheap gear. That deserves a video! :)

    Scion doesn't really care about Uber Lab, she already has all the good stuff after the 3rd lab. Can do Uber any time you feel comfortable. And you probably don't want to let Izaro get buffs on your first run (notice how much harder he hit me with the 3 gargoyles).

    20 Int is the best thing you can get for 1 point at this level. So take the last remaining Int node + skill point.

    This build always had it easy in the labs. Not a speed runner, of course, but no problems and can carry others too.

    I have 6k ES right now. Is that decent for this build? What amount of ES should I aim for?

    Hi

    what about this armour.

    saquawals nest

    75 all attributes looks verry nice, es is decent and the avian thing can craftet on amulet and gives double dmg for 4 sec and movement speed.

    AND costs 2 c atm

    I specced for both CI and Reaver at lvl 69 and tried out running it. I only had like 2000ES or so, and would get fucked hard.

    I am searching for good replacement gear right now to spec back into CI, but if you permit the question, how did you get your items for 1-2c each? For most of the offcoulour items i cant even find them on poe. I saw your guide on offcolouring items, but that would take leveling up vorici first, and also an investment of several hundred jewellers per item, so i dont really understand how to find the right gear :(

    Sorry still more of a noob than i like to think i suppose.
