Just wanted to drop by and say thanks for the detailed guide. Especially the parts on gearing & gem interactions. As a relatively casual player (at least before this league), this was a fun build with a lot of flexibility/choices. Late game content became very easy (makes me wonder what the hell I was doing before). There is so much depth to the mechanics in PoE.
I chose to run Flesh and Stone for the sand stance defensive aura that blinds all nearby enemies - seems a pretty good deal for 25% reservation, I don't seem to find folks mentioning it that often though.

Thank you!

I also like Flesh and Stone. I think it got a good bit of attention last league, but has in some ways fallen through the cracks of the softcore playerbase.

I think it's not uncommon on softcore for people to think about damage first, defenses second. So you see a lot of people using something like anger which has no defensive benefits as opposed to spider + flesh and stone.

  • Hi I blindly crafted this bow without knowing what mod I should aim. Is this worth crafting for elehit slayer? trying to do my last char before closing the league.

    Thanks

    It's usable because it has double damage, but I don't think it's the best. I'd compare it within PoB to a +1 all gems / +2 bow or supports multimodded bow and use whichever comes out on top.

    From my amulet gearing section;

    So what to anoint on it?
    Lava Lash is your best option for raw damage. You can alternatively take Tenacity which is slightly less damage but 5% increased maximum life which is overall more value.

    If you want as much life as possible anoint "Discipline and Training" for the max life/increased max life.

    If you just want all around amazing defenses take "Soul of Steel" for 1% max res (this can be combined with a "Granite" flask and dropping Acro for Iron Reflexes" to facilitate Molten Shell in place of Steelskin)
