I've made an Aurabot guide and a Cursebot guide (working on the mana guardian one too), and thought I could make this the Support guide page for all of you guys who enjoy playing supports !
Aurabots don't work for free !!!
Do NOT join "my loot your exp" parties, if you do, remove your damage auras and any other auras you don't need for your own survivability.
If it helps, I run either FFA where I loot and put in a dump tab to share 50-50 later (for large groups with leechers), or PA with a two-man group with split of exalts and above.
Furthermore, I unfriend any carries who even put groups with "LF Aurabot, my loot".
Shav aurabots aint real aurabots
I've played a bunch of characters over the past 3 leagues (began this build early incursion), but always ended up going back to playing aurabot gameplay, because, let's face it, I'm a lazy b***.
I'm sure most aura players have realized the potential of a Victario's, but kept dying to chaos damage, due to negligence of their corruscating elixirs, and simply gave up to play with a shavronne's.
Over the course of those 3 leagues, I've fully min maxed those characters, and believe I now have the perfect build ready for you people who want to benefit from a Victario, but are too lazy to flask ;)
I've added 3 different builds, the first being the one I currently use, which is to maximise DPS boost, by using a 2-handed weapon for the +% damage from auras to allies - if you invest into this build, there will be no other aura who can top your DPS buff. The second build is a little safer, and uses a one-handed weapon and shield, but does an insane boost as well.
The third build is my standard variant, which wouldn't work for leagues, as it uses a lot of legacy gear, but is really fun to use if you have the cash in standard to play around =)
39k Without Auras
521k with smite & Vaal haste - no flasks
This build is NOT budget friendly, but there are ways to run this build cheaper initially, and fit more expensive items in as you go along.
Leveling is always a pain as an aurabot, if this is your first character, I suggest you join a public party and start off with a frost blades or arc setup, as you won't be a full support until you hit level 68+.
As per MaousAura's suggestion, caustic arrow mirage archer (for clearing) and toxic rain for help boss killing can help early.
Special thanks to:
MADGENESIS - for the Legacy build idea
VATINAS - comments on guide improvements
GRIMMACOUNT - for the dps screenshots
NHTL1017953 - Bow idea
Consistent DPS boosting build, lower ES - i.e. the lazy mapper
Nature respects the strong
And paints the snow red
With the blood of the weak
Spike-Point Arrow Quiver
In this chaotic world
The rewards of the Soul
Outlast the rewards of the Flesh.
"Every life is a story.
If you're not writing your own,
you'd better know who's writing it for you!"
- Victario, the People's Poet
"Ever watched a man crush another man's skull?
Hard to feel hope after that."
The quick die young, the brilliant go mad,
and the powerful stand alone in a wasteland of their own creation.
Strike true, strike hard, and leave no survivors to retaliate.
Hold in your hand the darkness
and never will the light blind you.
This build gives me 6673 ES, using a 1 socket darkness enthroned - you could use a 2 socket darkness enthroned and a 1 socket tombfist for league, but lose the corruption on the darkness enthroned (but more ES).
You could swap 4 ES nodes to go after "Essence Surge", which would grant an additional 15% faster start of ES recharge, but due to my watcher's eye, granting me 40% already, I deemed it unnecessary.
Major God - Soul of Lunaris for delving and mapping
Soul of Solaris for bossing
Minor God - Soul of Abberath so burning ground doesn't prevent our ES start of regen
Animate Guardian items:
Helm : Leer Cast (AOE damage aura)
Weapon : Dying Breath (AOE damage aura)
Boots : Victario's Flight (AOE movement speed aura)
Gloves : Southbound (bonus % HP)
Armour : Zahndethus' Cassock (consecrated ground & Chaos res) / Ambu's Charge / Belly of the Beast
If you wanted to min max even more, you would have a +2 AOE or AURA gems corruption on your skyforths and put your purities in there. You would then put your curse setup in the gloves with +2 to level of socketed curse gems, and put your Animate Guardian and Discipline setup in helm.
If you invested into more mana reservation in your skill tree, via additional jewel sockets, you could place Vaal Grace & Determination in the helm, but this would leave you with a much lower ES value, and I don't think it's worth the risk.

Hey Yuna, good to see you, it's me "BottingForResists" in Standard.
I would actually swap out your curses for 20-23's as they are stronger with quality than level !
Yeah, I'm going to update the guide with a standard/legacy variant.
I use 5x reckless defences and legacy rumi with Aegis Aurora and that gives me 75% phys block and 42% spell block. Damn shame about the nerf of the reckless defences but still a good tanky build I think =)
|Oct 04, 2018 12:16:29 PM|
All I have to say : BEST Aura build in TOWN !!
|Oct 04, 2018 13:50:11 PM|
yah . in the first time i want to stack rec jewel for get 75/ 75 block but when they got nerf just use 1 . another choice is plus es . 7k9 es with watcher eye jewel is not enough coz wew / i need to drop more point / gear to use 3 curse and and boost dps :( . seem hard but fine . but / dont know why i though for 2 hand weapon is boost 4% ( 2 % for 1 hand ) . is a better choice for boost our dps but we need to drop aegis :( that the big problem
- i'll find better dual corrup curse like 21/23 when 3.5 comming . need tone of them for min/max our build .
|Oct 04, 2018 15:51:02 PM|
Yup, I have a 2 handed ready to use for when Delve comes to Standard, will try see if it works :
As you said, there will be no Aegis on that build, but it can be a high ES build, which will be less tanky in sustaining ES.
Curious to see if I can remove some Rec Defense jewels and still keep 75% phys block.... But 42% spell block is still better than like, 15% or whatever =)
|Oct 04, 2018 16:06:40 PM|
yah u need to tested this on SD first / is better for boots but we no longer to play as tanky anymore / always hide
and how can u get shaper mod socketed movement no mana cost ? u just spent like 50-100 foil more minion or aura mod on shaper item ? lel proably i dont need that / my mana lelf is like 20-22 mana but wew have mod better than nothing
mine flask is same but 15 is okey / rare jewel give more es and we just need max es as we can for run xD

Yeah, you spam fossils on a shaped weapon to get both mods, takes between 50-100 as you said. I find it useful, because thanks to that, "no regen" maps are no issue anymore :)
I'll let you know what I do with a 2 hand build when I try it out. It will lower my ES a LOT, but for fun max DPS min maxing could be funny
|Oct 04, 2018 16:50:44 PM|
