Bit vague when you said weak, in what sense?

I can see your life rolls on your gear are pretty low, you have all the life nodes allocated and you cant break 5k life. You are missing a few crafts you can throw on your items like gloves, amulet.
The implicit of your items arent rolled to perfect
At your current tree, we should be looking at close to 6k life(at level 90)

Your flasks arent rolled properly and they arent max quality

Cooldown recovery speed isnt the backbone of this build, infact we only start scaling cooldown recovery late in gearing because it does not do a whole lot for us as compared to having life/overwhelm stats

I would never touch a 6 passives medium cluster coz you are forced to take an extra point for the jewel slot

All of your gems are level 18 and below with no quality where it was required, maybe you will need those to have more dps

I would suggest changing your belt for an actual belt with high life rolls and ideally overwhelm stat, you can just bench craft in cooldown recovery. Losing huge chunks of flat life for that cooldown recovery is not worth it


Tailwind boots is priority over cooldown recovery boots too, you will want to eventually craft a boots with both stats

If single target is an issue, ill go for awakened increased aoe and replace it with pcoc on blade blast

If life is a problem, ill change belt and maybe look for a better chest for % life roll or craft 8%life/mana. Also craft whatever you could on your items that has an open affix

Some of your items has 0 quality or not maxed out quality, every tiny bits and pieces will accumulate to be a big problem

Thanks ,im taking about my def , my dmg is okay . I just misunderstand about cooldown and buy item with cooldown only . i will try to replace belt , boots


If I don;t require 2 enlighten's and want to switch out temporal chains for an ass mark ring, what would you suggest go in the free socket? Ice golem is out since already crit capped, maybe lightning golem? But it doesn't really seem to give that much.

I'm trying so see how far I can push your build, want to be able to pop siruis before he finishes saying "everlasting fire".

Current planned upgrades: double crit chest, ass mark ring, cdr stygian with flask on crit, watchers eye with double dmg+ crit multi on precision, swap out grand spectrums for life and crit multi jewels.

Anything else I missed? Probably gonna stop short of 6/23 woke gems though.

Also, is there any way to raise our evasion or dodge much higher beyond adding evasion? Since the return on stacking evasion seems really low with our tree pathing, like less than 1% total avoidance (evade+dodge combined) chance per 1k evasion from items

Pretty much i experienced/planned for, A8 sirus dying in p3 before he finish everlasting his fire


Personally, i would almost never touch a golem for buffs because golems sucks and they die 356/24/7

The last gem slot is pretty much free, we dont have much to place unless you want to use something like enduring cry(the cast time is distruptive)

I would throw in a cdr/tailwind boots as another high end upgrade

How directly would you say our dmg scales with attack speed? Pob doens;t really handle the poets pen casting well it seems. One of the options I was considering was slotting in vaal haste, and replacing the shock on focus to another +1 min frenzy charge since with vaal haste that's a bit too many buttons for my liking. This gives me 6 aps.

The other option I considered was vaal grace, but with only a 7% gain in spell dodge it seemed like a waste of a slot.

If nothing else seems to work then I guess I'll just slot in portal.

Ill leave the vaal skill slot to RF and not add in another vaal skill, since it competes with vaal rf for the souls

Attack speed matters but not too much to the point that we overstack it and neglect other stats

So I got an awakened cast on crit gem, is it worth using that or selling it for like awakened brutality and saving for awakened spell cascade/bottled faith?

Awakened cast on crit is a very tiny weeny bit of upgrade compared to awakened brutality or spell cascade and bottled faith

Great guide! Thanks!

Been having a blast *pun* with this build!

I'd like to suggest adding a budget MoM version to your guide. Currently, a huge QoL gap exists between your builds. With limited currency, it is very difficult to have enough life gear and damage to survive fully modded T14-16s. The MoM version bridges this gap quite nicely, making lvl 88-95 less frustrating.

The key difference is a 7K+ eHP life pool (5.5K life + 0.7 shield + 1K unreserved mana) with 50% evasion from Blind, and multiple totems to setup more bladefall, as well as taunt bosses. All this comes with a mere loss of ~7% shaper damage versus your lvl 95 cluster jewel build, without Bottled Faith. (same difference if both builds have Bottled Faith)

All this can be achieved under 250Cs, with Militant Faith, Awakened Increased Area of Effect being the most expensive investments. When banner is dropped, the eHP jumps to 8K, allowing you to tank a single hard hit with 50% chance to survive another. This is especially beneficial for us, since lvl 1 barrage makes us less dependent on mana.

Beyond 250c, my next upgrades would be (i) Bottled Faith, (ii) Cooldown Recovery, (iii) Tailwind Boots for attack speed, and (iv) the cluster jewels for Overwhelm Physical and Chance for Double Damage.

MoM Build Details:

Tree:
1) Drop all cluster jewels, switch out attack speed passives for Dexterity nodes from starting point. This gives us extra 2 points to spend. Can have better stats with just a Jewel.
2) Take Mind Drinker, Deep Thoughts, Arcane Will for mana.
3) Take Mind over Matter (MoM).
4) Annoint Prodigal Perfection for more Mana and big Damage boost
5) Take Master of Force wheel for Damage boost + Overwhelm Physical 10%.
6) Take Melding wheel for extra Life.

Gear:
1) Use essence worm for Pride. Dropping one "+life gain per spell hit" ring is fine, since we hit so often.
2) Buy Crown of the Inward Eye for Life/ES/Damageboost
3) Aim to have +Mana and +Life on all rares

If you are lucky with resists, you can add in Kaom's Roots for Stun/Freeze/Chill Immunity.

This sets up the MoM build.


On a side note, regarding your DPS calculation, only 40 blades can linger at a time for Blade Fall.

Do you know if this is restricted to gem, player, or instance?

If it is player, then this is max you can detonate at any time. If it is gem, and spell cascade can increase this number, then that makes a world of difference. If not, we may be capped at 40 blades.


Also, for barrage Attack Speed and Cooldown Recovery, what values are you aiming for?

I found on Reddit:

CDR APS
0%-7% 3.721-3.780 APS
8%-26% 4.248-4.324 APS
27%-51% 4.948-5.053 APS
52%+ 5.926-6.076 APS

I'm currently at 4.27 APS and with a single belt I reach the first threshold.
With boots and belt cooldowns, I can reach 28%, but will need both Onslaught and Tailwind to get get the 5.0 APS. Onslaught comes from Cinderswallow, cheap but doesn't last long. Tailwind plus Cooldown boots will cost a fortune, and will be a nightmare to tweak for resists.
