Forum Index Scion (3.7) dps focus for the Ascendant Aurabot

History

This is the second aurabot I made so far. On this char I tried to get as much aura effectivenes and aura range as I could possibly get. It is still a work in progres but so far most people i run with are rather statisfied.

STATS

Spoiler
Currently I have 6994 energy shield and 1717 unreserved life.
i have 44% chaos resistance wich will be capped to 75% with
Avenger's Amethyst Flask of Dousing
-
Click to expand
  • Recharges 3 Charges when you take a Critical Strike
  • Immunity to Ignite during Flask effect Removes Burning on use
  • . My fire and lightning resistance are at 85% and my lightning is at 84%. i chose to have all resistances at 100%+ uncapped since I want to be capped when I am running maps with elemental weakness. My evasion is at 20k+ so i have 50% chance to evade attacks wich also grants an defensive layer.


    LEVELING
    Spoiler
    To get through the storyline I used the skillgem Firestorm since it has rather large aoe and decent damage. I asked a friend to get me through the labs as soon as I could do them.This method is rather slow so you could also join public party's who are running the story in a group.


    MY CURRENT GEAR
    Spoiler

    Alpha's Howl
    Sinner Tricorne
    Click to expand
  • +2 to Level of Socketed Aura Gems
  • 98% increased Evasion Rating
  • +24% to Cold Resistance
  • 25% chance to Avoid being Chilled
  • Cannot be Frozen
  • 8% reduced Mana Reserved
  • Nature respects the strong

    And paints the snow red

    With the blood of the weak


    Well Alpha's Howl is pretty basic you use your 3 purity gems in here with an enlighten support. The goal is to get an uberlab enchant with reduced mana reservation for one of the three dps auras. (still trying to get an enlighten level 4 so I have more mana)
    Victario's Influence
    Lacquered Garb
    Click to expand
  • +1 to Level of Socketed Gems
  • +1 to Level of Socketed Aura Gems
  • Socketed Gems are Supported by Level 30 Generosity
  • Socketed Gems have 30% reduced Mana Reservation
  • 135% increased Evasion and Energy Shield
  • 31% increased Area of Effect of Aura Skills
  • 14% increased effect of Non-Curse Auras from your Skills
  • "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


    For Vicatario's Influence you should put all the auras in here wich you dont need for yourself.So I have put hatred anger wrath and precision in it with en empower lvl 4 so I give as much dps to my party memebers as I can and I have placed dread banner in the 6th unlinked slot. (getting an +2 corrupt on it is the end goal but super expensive so not in my reach yet)
    Skyforth
    Sorcerer Boots
    Click to expand
  • +77 to maximum Mana
  • 30% increased Movement Speed
  • 25% chance to gain a Power Charge on Critical Strike
  • 6% reduced Mana Reserved
  • You have no Life Regeneration
  • Stun Threshold is based on 500% of your Mana instead of Life
  • The quick die young, the brilliant go mad,

    and the powerful stand alone in a wasteland of their own creation.


    Skyforth boots are just for the reduced mana reservation and that is it. The fact that you lose life regeneration is a downside but not the end of the world. Because of this you can drop the vitality aura and get more defences.
    Shaper's Touch
    Crusader Gloves
    Click to expand
  • +2 to Level of Socketed Curse Gems
  • 102% increased Armour and Energy Shield
  • +4 Accuracy Rating per 2 Intelligence
  • +1 Life per 4 Dexterity
  • +2 Mana per 4 Strength
  • 2% increased Energy Shield per 10 Strength
  • 2% increased Evasion Rating per 10 Intelligence
  • 2% increased Melee Physical Damage per 10 Dexterity
  • By my hand, the inert is given life.

    By my hand, that which rots is reborn.

    There is nothing that cannot be changed.

    Nothing.


    Shaper's Touch gloves are the reason that I have a big energy shield since the 2% increased energyshield per 10 strength scales prety well. (currently there are 2 curses socketed in the gloves with the +2 level to socketed curse gems since i was running blasphemy support with both of them but then I have found a timeles jewel and got rid of the second curse. I am still doubting if i should try to get that 2nd curse back or not.)
    Prism Guardian
    Archon Kite Shield
    Click to expand
  • +2 to Level of Socketed Aura Gems
  • +2 to Level of Socketed Aura Gems
  • Socketed Gems have Blood Magic
  • Socketed Gems have 25% reduced Mana Reservation
  • +21 to Dexterity
  • +25% to all Elemental Resistances
  • When blood is paid, the weak think twice.


    For the Prisom guardian I got the +2 to level of socketed aura gems and placed the remaining defensive auras in here to get as much out of it as I could get.
    Pandemonium Slicer
    Corsair Sword
    Click to expand
  • 40% increased Global Accuracy Rating
  • Socketed Movement Skills have no Mana Cost
  • Adds 10 to 21 Physical Damage
  • Adds 2 to 3 Cold Damage
  • Minions deal 49% increased Damage
  • Auras from your Skills grant 2% increased Damage to you and Allies
  • +34% to Lightning Resistance

  • This weapon can surely be upgraded but I use it for the "auras from your skills grant 2% increased damage to you and allies" and the socketed movementskill cost no mana is sweet aswell this way you give even more damage to your team and you can reserve more mana due the no cost.
    Hypnotic Whorl
    Two-Stone Ring
    Click to expand
  • +13% to Fire and Lightning Resistances
  • Grants Level 20 Aspect of the Spider Skill
  • +8 to all Attributes
  • Adds 5 to 10 Physical Damage to Attacks
  • +61 to maximum Mana
  • +31% to Chaos Resistance
  • +49 to maximum Life

  • Same goes for this ring the only reason I got it is to get the aspect of the spider skill and to get my resistances to 100+ so that I wont be under the res cap when effected by elemental weaknes.
    The Pariah
    Unset Ring
    Click to expand
  • Has 1 Socket
  • +2 to Level of Socketed Gems
  • 8% increased Attack and Cast Speed
  • +100 to Maximum Life per Red Socket
  • +100 to Maximum Mana per Green Socket
  • +100 to Maximum Energy Shield per Blue Socket
  • 15% increased Item Quantity per White Socket
  • A man who changes his loyalties often,

    soon finds he has none.


    The Pariah is used with a blue socket to get as much energy shield as you can possibly get.
    Presence of Chayula
    Onyx Amulet
    Click to expand
  • Wrath has 16% increased Aura Effect
  • 30% increased Rarity of Items found
  • +60% to Chaos Resistance
  • Cannot be Stunned
  • 20% of Maximum Life Converted to Energy Shield
  • The dreamer stirs, the world trembles.


    Presence of chayula is used so you wont get stunned and gain lots of chaos resistance. Plus the increased wrath aura effect grants even more damage to your party members ( still trying to get 20% on it though)
    Bated Breath
    Chain Belt
    Click to expand
  • Wrath has 20% increased Aura Effect
  • +16 to Intelligence
  • 10% increased Damage
  • +29 to maximum Energy Shield
  • 20% increased maximum Energy Shield
  • 50% increased Energy Shield Recharge Rate
  • At knifepoint, a moment's hesitation means death.


    Bated Breath is used to gain more es and faster es rechargerate. Again the corurpt is to grant more dps to your party members.
    Ephemeral Edge
    Dusk Blade
    Click to expand
  • 40% increased Global Accuracy Rating
  • +10 to Intelligence
  • 150% increased Physical Damage
  • 50% increased Global Critical Strike Chance
  • 50% increased maximum Energy Shield
  • 10% reduced maximum Life
  • 0.61% of Physical Attack Damage Leeched as Mana
  • In the rift between future and past,

    life passes quickly.


    I use ephemeral edge for boss fights such as uber elder and so on since it grants close to 800 more energyshield on the cost for a bit dps loss. But if your carry becomes unable to kill stuff when you change your weapon he isnt worth supporting to begin with.
    My flasks are pretty basic:
    Avenger's Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
    -
    Click to expand
  • Recharges 3 Charges when you take a Critical Strike
  • 22% increased Movement Speed during Flask effect
  • Eternal Life Flask of Staunching
    -
    Click to expand
  • Immunity to Bleeding during Flask effect Removes Bleeding on use
  • Avenger's Amethyst Flask of Dousing
    -

  • Immunity to Ignite during Flask effect Removes Burning on use
  • Surgeon's Granite Flask of Grounding

    Click to expand
  • 20% chance to gain a Flask Charge when you deal a Critical Strike
  • Immunity to Shock during Flask effect Removes Shock on use
  • Experimenter's Jade Flask
    -
    Click to expand
  • 34% increased Duration

  • They are all used for defences or movementspeed to keep up with fast party members. There is no need for an anti freeze flask since your helmet grants immumity to freeze.

    THE TIMELES JEWEL
    Spoiler

    Glorious Vanity
    Timeless Jewel
    Click to expand
  • Bathed in the blood of 1757 sacrificed in the name of Xibaqua Passives in radius are Conquered by the Vaal
  • Historic
  • They believed themselves the pinnacle of civilisation, but that height toppled their empire.


    I have found a timeles jewel wich grants me 42% aura effectivenes and 60 % area of effect for my auras. I placed it in the top of my tree as can be seen on the skilltree.

    He's ambitious.

    all 4 are used to gain more health so we wont get oneshotted by chaos damage and again the corruptin with mana reservation.



    PLAYING AURABOT
    Spoiler
    Lately finding partys on public partys is kinda hard since most people want you to support them but wont allow you to loot. If that is the case and you join them for exp only then you should turn all dps auras off and just run the ones you need to survive. Aurabots wont work for free you need to get your gear together somehow so thats why you need loot aswell. So try finding some people who you enjoy playing with and actually split loot and keep on running maps with them.


    ANIMATED GUARDIAN
    Spoiler
    If you like using an animated guardian you can use it with items that grant auras by themselves such as
    Leer Cast
    Festival Mask
    Click to expand
  • +27 to Dexterity
  • 30% reduced Damage
  • +22 to maximum Life
  • +30 to maximum Mana
  • You and nearby allies gain 15% increased Damage
  • For none of us are as cruel as all of us.


    Leer mask is used for the 15% increased damage to allies.
    Victario's Flight
    Goathide Boots

  • +15 to Dexterity
  • +15 to Intelligence
  • 139% increased Evasion Rating

  • Alive but not unscathed, Victario fled

    as slaughter blossomed at the gates.


    Victaruio's flight is used to grant increased movementspeed to you and allies.
    Ambu's Charge
    Crusader Chainmail
    Click to expand
  • 200% increased Armour and Energy Shield
  • +65 to maximum Life
  • +15% to all Elemental Resistances
  • Gain an Endurance Charge when you take a Critical Strike
  • Share Endurance Charges with nearby party members
  • Regenerate 2% of Life per second if you have been Hit Recently
  • Nothing stops the pain like a courageous rush into battle.


    Ambu's charge is used to grant endurance charges for your party and the life regeneration is used to keep your guardian alive since I dont use vitality.
    Southbound
    Soldier Gloves
    Click to expand
  • Adds 33 to 45 Cold Damage to Attacks
  • 15% increased maximum Life
  • +50% to Cold Resistance
  • 25% increased Freeze Duration on Enemies
  • Your Hits can only Kill Frozen Enemies
  • 50% increased Herald of Ice Damage

    Below the snow, adrift wanderers sleep.


    Southbound gloves are used for the 15% increased maximum life to make the guardian tanky.
    Dying Breath
    Iron Staff
    Click to expand
  • +18% Chance to Block Attack Damage while wielding a Staff
  • 18% increased Cast Speed

    Carry wisdom for the living,

    If you are willing to give your life

    To listen.


    Dying breath is used in the classic setup for a guardian because it grants lots of aura modifiers and also a flat dps aura.
    Kingmaker
    Despot Axe
    Click to expand
  • 258% increased Physical Damage
  • 9% increased Attack Speed
  • 31% increased Critical Strike Chance
  • Nearby Allies have 30% increased Item Rarity
  • Nearby Allies have Culling Strike
  • Insufficient Mana doesn't prevent your Melee Attacks
  • Nearby Allies have +50% to Critical Strike Multiplier
  • Nearby Allies have Fortify
  • A King and his people are linked together

    like a soul and a beating heart.

    Both can be severed by a same edge,

    then forged anew.


    The kingmaker is a more expensive cost since you lose 30c every time your guardian dies. But grants beter auras and fortify.


    AURA CHOICES
    Spoiler
    I chose to drop determination since it doesnt grant enough armour to be worth using and reserving mana for.
    As explained before I dropped vitality since you cant regenerate life anyway.
    pride doesnt feel worth using since its more like a debuff to enemies then an buff for your allies.
    DO NOT use malevolence since it ruins some builds since they lose their charges.
    since there is mana left for another aura I chose to use flesh and stone to blind nearby enemies wich grants even more defences.


    WHAT I AM WORKING ON TO IMPROVE THE BUILD
    Spoiler
    Currently I am trying to get all gems to 20% quality level 21 or even 23/21 if possible. And I am looking for a beter ring and weapon to get have more valuable stats on them.


    PEOPLE WILL LOVE YOU

    not going to spare you at all.

    you might wanna take a look at this guide: Forum - Scion - [3.7] CI Aura Bot (19Auras / Aspect / Smite / Party Fortify / Tanky) - Path of Exile

    not going CI is very very VERY bad...
    Determination is HALF OF YOUR DEFENSE. Not kidding. Dropping it will pop you soon.
    hatred? All auras you pop into your Victario's should be at 0% without a helm enchant.

    I decided to go for aura effect over multiple auras.That way I still reserve mana when I cast my damage auras. My wrath still has a 6% aura reservation. And well quality over quantity auras Id say. There is no need to go CI for me since I am able to run suicidal tier 16 maps with ease and I didnt choose to go for Iron Reflexes so determination isnt even close to be 5% of my defences.
