[3.12]The BLOCKMAN endgame farming build. All content farming (Cheap and tanky)League starter

Welcome, exile. This is my first guide and first post on the forum.


With this build you can FACETANK ALL CONTENT in the game
Like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZlGIbIoOcw

Hello everyone this build is perfect for a league that you will need to survive the full heist encounter to get away with loot. Can be done as league starter , can easily run all maps with rare gear you can check it doing conqueror's on low budget in the videos.


3.12 changes and thoughts


Hello, first of all the build was not nerfed and some changes happened
they are

-Vulnerability
No longer causes attack hits to have a chance to Maim cursed enemies.
No longer causes cursed enemies to take increased physical damage from damage over time.
Curses applied by casting this spell now gain 10 Doom per second.
Now causes ailments inflicted on cursed enemies to deal damage 20% faster.
I dont think it will change the damage but need to see in the pob when it att to confirm

and

Enduring Cry
No longer grants a minimum of one Endurance Charge.
Now has a cooldown of 8 seconds at all gem levels (from 6 seconds
Not a big deal but it is a nerf
About the skill tree

Changed almost nothing to the tree just one new node that maybe be worth to take , when the tree is relased on the pob i will talk again about this

The new Marked for Death cluster has been added to the southeast of the Duelist. It grants increased Effect of your Curses, Culling Strike against Marked enemies, and increased damage with Hits and Ailments against Enemies Marked by you.

this new point on the tree depending on how close it is to the path the build tree pass will be worth using.

Some new ideas for the build

Warlord's Mark
Enemies afflicted by Warlord's Mark will always grant an Endurance Charge when slain, and grant rage when stunned. They also allow attacks to leech life and mana from them

Maybe is worth to change vulnerability for Warlord's Mark and change some other gem for a berserk (or use a unset ring) using the pob right now if the build have 50 rage and use berserk the damage almost doble.

Final thoughts
The build stay strong as always and there's more potential for changes(using rage and berserk) achieving insane dps bost at the cost of almost nothing
and on the league as ggg said you need to survive to the end of the heist encounter to get the loot a tanky build will be the best choice.

my gear in harvest/end game gear


All this gear is from harvest league as league ended and i reformated this part it show now standart league.
If you are doing this build as league starter/low budget check the gear for it on the other topic
Body armour:
The principal mods are the explode and the -15mana , without harvest one with power charge on crit will be expensive.



Gloves:
Try to get one with accuracy life and resist , if you can afford physical to attacks or attack speed is great


Boots
Any boots with resist life and movespeed is great for the build , if you can afford get elusive and tailwind on it too(just tailwind or elusive is good too and more cheap)

Helmet
Abyssus with the less increased physical damage taken (43-40%)The more crit multi the better.

Rings
One should be a circle of guilt with 4% physical reduction and 40-60% increased physical If you can afford get one with good implicts the best one is onslaught on hit, some implicits like criti multi are great too
The other ring should have curse enemies with vulnerability on hit , some life and accuracy , if you can afford get more add physical on it too


Amulet
Some resist, life , you might need to get dexterity on the amulet or int if you dont have accuracy on the ring get it on the amulet too , crit mult and add physical are great

Belt
The best belt for the build is Rhyslata coil , if you cant afford get a decent stygian vise

Sword
Paradoxica is way too cheap by how strong it is with my setup only foil with more than 580pds(they worth like almost all my gear in my char) deal more damage than a paradoxica with 180pds(like 4-5% more)
try to get one with at least 150pds if you can afford the blind mod on it is great , dont get the +% impale chance the build already have 100% impale chance

Shield
Without a doubt the best is the surrender

Flasks
My current setup is


If you dont have onslaught on the ring swap the quicksilver flask for one with onslaught and dont forget the diamond flask it give more damage than the bottled faith

Jewels

Without a jewel that have the mod "you cant be inflict with corrupted blood" you wont be able do tank the sirus die attack
About watchers eyes the best mod is Impales that you inflict last 2 additional attacks.

how to craft the body armour

Step by step
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrncEY4f8yg
1-buy the astral plate 6link item level 86+
2-buy the warlord's exalted
3-craft life on the astral , get one empty sufix on it
4-Use the warlord's on it
5- if dont get the mana mod , scour it
6- use pristine+lucent+serrated fossil on it
done

How to craft the explosive and the mana mod on body armour
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zntMXYw4bEU
1-get a 6link with the -15 mana mod on it and cant have any other warlord's mod on it
2- get a body armour with enemies you kill explode ... need to be the only crusader's mod on it
3-buy one awakening's orb
4- use the awakening on the explode first and them on the mana(use it first on the base you dont want)
5-done




leveling

The leveling of the build is smooth , and using a cheaper uniques will make it even faster
itens like this

and a tabula rasa and u can swap for more powerfull itens(swords and shield)
when get to high levels.
Ascendancy ordem is
1-Pain forged
2-Versatile Combatent
3-Violente Retaliation
4-Arena Challenger
Bandits
Let alira live
About what gems or what skill to level until you get cyclone i like to use reave but u can try any meele skill

a setup like this.

About the skill tree you can select in the pob there is a lvl 30,60,80 and 100
pob:https://pastebin.com/DqWv7vwp

When i use this build as league starter i level with cleave/reave until i get cyclone , i usually use warlord mark with bhasphemy for life and mana leach and the rest of the mana i reserve with pride in the low leves i use 2 one handed swords for leveling until i get on the shield nodes , if i can i buy any unique sword for leveling and use it(dont spend more than a chaos on one)when you do the first and second lab is better to change to one hand sword and one shield.



low budget/league starter3.12

Body armour any 5-6link with high hp

gloves any with resist and life or you can use a Haemophilia and get bleeding explosion will give you more clear speed

belt

boots any with movespeed life and some resist

shield the recovery mod is better than the flat mod , try to get both.

helmet huge dps boost

amulet the anvil is really nice , and cheap more life on block and more block chance

rings one with resist / life and the other need to be a práxis with -8 mana cost , this way cyclone wont cost mana to use

sword ichimonji ireally Strong and give the - mana reserved mod , so this way
we can use pride , blood and sand , precision(lvl1) hereald of purity and dread banner.


total cost= ~ 95c in the first week of the league.

Ascendancy in orden
painforged>versatile combatant>Violent retaliation> arena challenger

The defense layer

The damage mitigation comes from:
1 Always fortify up
2 Infused channeling
3 81% phys reduction
4 Endurace charges
5 Blind on hit
6 Always max spell and attack block chance
7 Life gain on block and
with all the 7 itens you can tank almost every enconter in the game.
Cant tank Dot damage like shaper beam.
Here you can see the defense of the build on t16 map with veritania influence
The monster and the boss in the video are dying of my block skills , using the cyclone to kill only the metamorph.
https://youtu.be/QKKI-kqbnTE?t=71

The damage

1 Pure physical damage with impale
2 blood rage for frenzy charge and leech
3 Vulnerability for damage and more bleed chance ,
5 Explode on death , helping with the clear speed.
6 Buffed herald of purity for more damage.
With everthing on +10kk damage can be easily achievable.




Pros/Cons

Pros:
Cheap to start
High dps
Fast clear speed(explo chest+arena challenger)
Really tank
Can easily do all content in the game(including gran masters)
Cons
Not a cheap build to min max it.
Can not do Physical Reflect maps.
Cant tank some sources of DOT damage.




Old stuff



3.19 budget




Gear
Body armour: Need the mod"Socketed attacks have -15 to total mana cost"it cost 100c with a good life roll and 6link(can use any 5/6l for starter , just change blood and sand for blasphemy with warlord mark and mana sustain wont be a problem.)

Helmet: Abyssus for the damage. One with nice roll is around 10c

Weapon:Cheap weapon just 1c and good damage for the price

my gear in 3.10

Sword:

Shield:

Body armour:

With the explode body armour you dont need the blood explosion ascendancy(gratuitous violence) grab the arena challenger for more attack and movement speed and violent retaliation for more block chance and more damage.
gloves:

boots:

belt:

Rings
Using one with 4% to phys damage reduction for more tankness


Amulet : Using bladedancer anoint for more aoe on cyclone(less damage than assassination)

flasks: Using a movement speed in the place of the botled faith for more clear speed (ps i am farming more simulacrum than maps)
Jewel:If you can afford get the corrupted blood mod on it




POB:https://pastebin.com/6vKPNgF2

3.11 changes


- Herald of Purity
No longer grants added Physical Damage with Spells and Attacks.
Now grants 9% more Physical Damage at gem level 1, up to 12% more Physical Damage at gem level 20.Should be something around -5%dps
- Some clusters jewels got nerfed.Rip Deep Cuts(BTW i dind't use those on the build)

Cyclone lost it Stun immunity , but with gladiator ascendacy it makes us immunes to stun from attacks that we block and with 5.5k+ life it won't impact on the playstyle of the build.

- Some nodes on skill tree lost a bit of damage on them.

Conclusion: The build stay strong in early and end game , almost same tankness just -5% on physical reduction cause soul of steal got nerfed and less damage but with the right itens +10kk damage is still achievable.

POB 3.11: https://pastebin.com/YWT1teAi





3.11 version

Hi , in the harvest league is way easy to craft/buy really good itens and i managed to craft a really good chestplate for the build that said in this version i dont use a impresence amulet , cause i got a ring with vulnerability on hit , that way i have 2 free sockets of gems and enduring cry with the key node that make warcry's instant can be used while using cyclone.
The skill tree is almost the same , the damage with my current gear is 14kk
and the same tankness as before.
POB: https://pastebin.com/DqWv7vwp

Earthquake version

Hi again , in heist i started with a bleeding version of the build using earthquake , since i am not using abyssus i am more tank for physical damage
same block setup , but with more life gain on block cause i use some clusters
The clear speed is nice , the single target when the bleeding mod proc plus the warcrys is insane

my current gear heist


Helmet

The nearby enemies take increased physical damage is the best mod
Gloves

The physical damage over time is the best mod for gloves
Boots

The bleeding deals damage faster from hunter influence is the best for damage
Rings
One with curse vulnerability the other with bleeding mod from warlord influence with add physicals

Amulet with physical damage over time and flat physical

Body armour
Any with high armour and life is fine

AXE
This is where the damage come from it need to have the "60% chance to bleeding you inflict deals 100% more damage" the axe must need to have it and at least 200+pds

Shield
Surrender as aways , best in slot

Clusters and jewels







videos

thoughts on this version

First of all this version is more tanky , since it dont use abyssus and use artic armour the damage with the warcry setups is insane , one EQ boss die
the clear is pretty fast for a EQ build, even when i was using a jack the axe on a 5link the build wreck on maps , as a blockman build is tanky by standart this version take a futher step on it and is a different play style if u are bored with cyclone.This is not a concept that i created there's many similar builds like this one , i just wanted to share my version.


POB: https://pastebin.com/LF6bYT8j
pob dont calculate the fist of war neither the warcry bonus , so my real damage should be a lot more than this.



PS: I play the build with cyclone but any melee skill can work on(reave, blade flurry , lacerate etc.) it , for most cases swap infused for multistrike and you are ready to go , you can even use axes and get axes nodes on tree in the place of sword nodes. Can go violent retaliation and arena challenger or go blood explosions both works great.
If you do the build with any other skill and want to share it , pm me in game and i will add it to the guide nick: Theblockman

Good dude, good conversation with him in game. Also op build :).
New videos added all conquerors and sirus Awakened Level 8 all deathless.
Added path of building for budget version
Are you running around with -60% chaos resistance.

Everyone, literally everyone has complained about chaos damage this league and its the reason any gear with chaos resist is 187 ex and watcher's eye with any PoE chaos resist roll start at 3ex.

I want to try this build, it looks legit but I dont understand how you would survive actual gameplay outside of the bosses in the videos with -60% chaos resistanace.

Why go with paradoxica and not Facebreaker
?
Facebreaker variant is cheaper and does way more damage

Hi , its true that u can get a lot of damage with face break and
, grab the claw damage nodes insted of the swords nodes , but in the current setup os itens for the build using the face break and the rigwald's talisman it leaves 2 rare itens in the build , and all others unique itens dont give any kind of elemental resist so will be need to change some item to get the resist up to 76% or invest in really expesive itens, if i change the any item the loss in the dps will be huge. cyclone with face break will have less aoe and less attack speed and less damage than with paradoxica and will have less block chance and less total life.

this is the POB for facebreak , i wont recommend it : https://pastebin.com/FdT0Gkfh
Added new version for the budget setup , soon will be uploading videos of it.
edit: videos in the guide.

I do not mean to be offensive but in what context would -60 chaos res be game breaking for you? I've done all content deathless outside of uber elder (since im bad with dodging) by a melee with -60 chaos res. I do not delve much but deep delving is an entirely different dimension btw.

At worst, you can just pick an amethyst flask and roll with it.
