Forum Index Templar [3.8] Need help/advice for homebrew build

History

Hi all !

Creating my build is what I love about this game. This is why I always do my own build, instead of taking or customizing one found online. This, however, is often at the cost of efficiency. Even if I do a lot of research, I do not do enough testing, and I cannot see everything aniway.

This is why I come to you guys, that do it with such passion that people play your builds. I need a hand.

The plan is to play with a lot of energy shield and mana that gives me energy shield, and do some fire channeled spell with cast while channeling some more fire spell. SO THEY ALL BURN TO DEATH !! Or something like that.

This is my last skill tree. (Edit : Was. I'm starting over from the one below)



And this is a skill tree with waaay to many points. The one above is a version of it, even tho I'm not that happy with it


Now, if you guys feel creative and/or helpfull, I'd like help to finish that skill tree.

Some questions about the tree as it is :

For one : Do I have enough defense ? No, you never do. Ok. But will it be managable ?

Another : Do I have enough damage ? I'm pretty sure I do, but hey.

Final : Is there anything I missed or overlooked. Or maybe on the contrary, things I overvalued ?

And now the true business :

I need to remove at least enough points from the tree to bring it down to lvl 100 (95 idealy?). I don't know what to sacrifice. ES seems low enough, I already cut a loot of mana, I feel I have too much damage but every damage node I took feels core to the build...

I need some feedbacks and opinions, so I'd like yours, especially if you share my fun by giving it =)

Mind over Matter does not work with Chaos Inoculation. It says "30% of damage is taken from mana before life" not "before energy shield" and that's a big difference.

Do not path on nodes from both sides. Like around Divine Judgement. Pick 1 (stronger).

Skip these mana regen nodes at start, path through the top path (short intellect above retribution).

Would be better if you provided POB link, I can't for the love of God find out what spells are you using in that planner.

Explosive Impact is generally a weak wheel. Heart of Flame is a powerful node but with annoying pathing (prime candidate to anoint, but it's helluva expensive).

Faith and Steel should be picked for energy shield builds.

General rule of thumb:
1. Download path of building.
2. Pick as many defenses (ES / mana etc.) as you need and can pick efficiently.
3. Then pick damage, if you overcap points cut whatever wheel provides least damage per point spent (that requires you set up your spell of choice with all the supports to have accurate tooltips of each node value).

You can never pick everything useful.

Thanks a lot for your answer, I followed your advices, and finished my build on Path of Building.

I took your advies in consideration, and PoB helped a lot. Here's my final build (This is a PoB link. You guys can download it, or you can find an online version)

So there's 3 main spells.
Divine Ire (almost fully converted to fire) to leech and burst. Should be fun for clearing.
SR totems, linked with a searing bond.
Righteous Fire to help with all of that and do addinional passive damage.

I'd like to know what you guys think.
As you can see, I have an issue with RF, I do leak a bit. But I have 30% heal every 5sec, plus lifeleech... As it is, I'm gonna try it !
About items, except from some uniques, I kind of made it random. I don't know items enough.
There should be charisma on my amulet so I have some mana left !

Two questions, one, how do you regain life if you have Zealot's Oath and Ghost Reaver so everything regens / leeches energy shield not life. And two, how do you deal with chaos damage that bypasses energy shield.

I moved away from righteous fire, the leak wasn't serious and I realised I could add as much range to it as possible it was still a melee skill.

Now my build focus on the fire Divine ire, making it do quite impressive hits.

For the first question, now my life is reserved for auras (and low life bonus spell damage), so I hope I would not lose some. But the plan was to use heal pot for my previous build. I was thinking I shouldn't need to regen health that much often.

For the second, wich is still up to date... Well, for now, the plan is to die. And find another map. I've heard chaos damage is quite rare. If it's not working I'll try to get my hands on a shavronne.

By the way I now have way less survivability. Too little ? I have a lot of damage, and it should be cheap to build tho. It should be taken in account that I plan to do hardcore content with a nercomancer friend.

Here's my current build
