Aura Bot in a Jewel

Coming Soon

Abbreviation I will use
[RMR] Reduced Mana Reserved(Reservation)
[CI] Chaos Inoculation (Keystone on Passive Tree)
[Victario's] Victario's Influence (and not any other Victario's item)
[GV] Glorious Vanity
[WE] Watcher's Eye
[AG] Animated Guardian
[Aura Mod] will reffer to the delve mod "Auras from your Skills grant 2% increased Damage to you and Allies"

Necro VS Guardian
Necro vs Guard

Each has its own benefits IMO and you can chose to play this build as either.
PERSONALLY, i preffer Necro bellow you can see a comparison between guard and necro.

Things they both have in common:
Necro:
- You and nearby Allies deal 30% increased Damage
- With at least one nearby corpse, you and nearby Allies deal 10% more Damage


Guardian:
- Nearby Allies deal 30% increased Damage
- While there is at least one nearby Ally, you and nearby Allies deal 10% more Damage


What Necro has :
- Auras from your Skills grant 3% increased Attack and Cast Speed to you and Allies
(The line above, makes EVERY aura give 3% attack and cast speed. This is affected by Aura effect on a per aura basis as well, This means with 200% aura effect (250 for auras in victario's) and 15 Auras this buff grants 142% Attack and Cast speed Which can go even higher)
- With at least one nearby corpse, you and nearby Allies deal 10% more Damage
(Good Defensive Buff)
- Your Offering Skills also affect you Your Offerings have 25% reduced Effect on you
(This node allows you to almost cap your block, or have higher movemenet speed via offerings)
- Enemies near corpses you Spawned Recently are Chilled and Shocked
(If you don't go Regen route and carry cant Shock you can have Shock+Chill on demand)
- You and nearby Allies have +30% to Elemental Resistances
(Really nice for early league res capping)
- For each nearby corpse, you and nearby Allies Regenerate 0% of Energy Shield per second, up to 2.0% per second
(Really Good Regen and works even if you have skyforth since it is not Life Regen converted by Zealots Oath)

What Guardian has :
- Nearby Allies Intimidate and Unnerve Enemies for 4 seconds on Hit
(Good source for intimidate or unnerve for carries which dont have it) (Similar to necro shock)
- Nearby Allies have 15% increased Attack, Cast and Movement Speed
(Extra movemenet speed comapred to necro but MUCH MUCH lower amount of Attack and Cast speed)
- Grants maximum Energy Shield equal to 10% of your Reserved Mana to you and nearby Allies
(Extremly powerful amounts of ES for bassically Free to you and allies)
- Auras from your Skills grant +1% Physical Damage Reduction to you and Allies
(Really good phys mitigation for you and your party, this is also PER AURA, SCALING with aura effect.)
- Auras from your Skills grant 0.2% of Life Regenerated per second to you and Allies
(Same as buff Good Regen for carries but not for you if you go skyforth)
- 5% extra aura effect on ascendacy comapred to necro (but this isn't as important anymore thanks to cluster jewels)

As you can see Necro provides more dps Thanks to the massive amounts of attack and cast speed by Commander of Darkness (Shock / Intimidate / Unnerve are all more or less the same are both situational anyways)

Guardian however provides easier ES pool for both you and carry as well as some phys mitigation and regen making it more defensive than necro

I Preffer the feel of Big DPS and Big Attack and Cast speed, and i can compensate my tankiness with high level gear so i chose Necro. However Feel free to do Guardian if you so chose. Both are great!


What do I know?
I have quite a bit of experience gearing and min maxing an aura bot. I have been helping my friends min max Aura bots since Breach League and we have done many different variants (Mana Guard/Necro/Scion/Tribunal Mask/Etc) and we always try to push for exceptionally high level of gear and high number of Auras. For Synthesis League I made a 16Aura+Aspect Occultist that also self casted 5 Curses with the new Vixen's gloves all while having All Curse and Aura Effectiveness on try on top of over 10k es.

With the addition of Wicked Ward to the Passive Tree I thought it would be perfect to make a Max Aura Stacking (or almost) Scion Aurabot
(you know the one people kept saying was dead because Mortal Conviction only lets you have 1 Aura)

Final things before we start.
You do NOT need to run all auras or be able to run all auras to be effective. Losing 2k ES to run 1 more useless Aura is not worth it.(What Auras when dead)

Now that that's all out of the way lets get into it.



FAQ

  • I've read that it's not possible to run almost every Aura and not be squishy, is that true?

No That is in fact NOT true it strongly depends on your gear and your characters level, I am currently every single Aura (minus Determination and Purity of elements, since they arn't very usefull this league) and i have 9.5k ES, 90/90/90 Max Resistances high amounts of Regen and Evasion and near capped block.

  • What content have you done with this build/setup?

I've pretty much done every content the game has to offer, Juiced T19s, tripple beyong, simulacrum etc. There's really nothing i cant do.

  • How to deal with Stun without Eye of Chayula?

Skyforth which bassically grants us stun immunity (or at least a way not to get stunned much) or Brine King pantheon to never get stun locked
Stun really isn't such a big problem, being stun locked is. Just make sure you take Brine King if you dont go for skyforth tho.

  • Vitality and Skyforth???

Yes yes, Vitality does NOT work for you since if you have Skyforth, but who ever said it was for us? Not every carry is vaal pact, and ALL our auras give other bonuses as well. But yes, Vitality is at the bottom of your priorities if you have Skyforth boots.

  • How on Earth do you have so many Auras on Mana!?

Since Incursion there is a new Implicit you can get on all Jewels (Cluster Jewels inclunded) that gives us 1% Reduced Mana Reserved, enough Jewels with this corruption Paired with Victario's Influence and other sources of Reduced Reservation such Skyforth allow us to run that many auras on mana alone.
[WITH 3.10] Cluster Jewels there are 3 notables that grant us 30% reduced reservation for each of the purities, those notables are Pure Might, Guile and Aptitude with all 3 of these we significantly reduced the amount Corruption we need, cutting down on cost.

  • You are not pathing through witch ES nodes?

Yes, the ES nodes from witch are DOG SH*T and are NEVER worth taking. Save your selves points and path by the intelligence, you'll need those points elsewhere.

  • How much does it cost for X number of Auras?

This depends greatly on your gear level and luck at corrupting jewels/finding good deals. But with less than 2ex investment you can easily run 10-12 Auras depending on which auras you want. With cluster jewels especially it has gotten a lot easier to run more auras early.

The cost of build can go anywhere between 50c to 100ex depending on what and how much you want to invest into

  • Pride, why not run it?

Pure physical builds do not scale well with aura bots, and pride is a debuf to enemies around you and not a aura buff. This means that it does not give any of the other bonuses granted by our auas.

  • Cluster Jewels?

Cluster Jewels are the real OP stuff right now for aura bots. There will be a section with more details on what notables are worth using and when to use which. But tl;dr they allow for an isane amount of flexibility and power early game that previously was not possible.

  • Why CI and not LL

LL is really good because it can offset some of the Reservation costs from Mana to Life with items such as Prism Guardian and Blood Magic Support Gem (Tho the latter is never really used). Reducing the cost of the build (since less Jewels and RMR is Required)

However If you reserve too much Life, and dont have chaos resistance you will need to run a form of "Chaos Damage Does not bypass Energy Shield" and since you need to run Victario's you will have to run the flask which to me is not fun and clunky and potentially hurts survivability. All while also need some Chaos Resistance.

  • Why Not Life?

I find the life build variant very interesting and cheaper. However I personally Enjoy CI more. CI has a much easier time getting a larger EHP pool. On top of now having access to the Amazing Wicked Ward Keystone and never worrying about Chaos Damage.

  • How good is Wicked Ward?

If you're CI and running Skyforth its a must and is the GREATEST buff to come to CI Aurabots. With Some investment into Faster ES Start (Rings/Tree/Jewel) it only takes about 1.2 sec for Recharge to start and when it does you are practically immortal with over 4-5k es recharge/sec. The down side is it halves our Regen, which if you chose to go that route you will not be running skyforth and you will either need to get a large amount of regen to compensate for the 50% LESS regen downside or simply drop Wicked Ward.

  • Regen vs Wicked Ward?

We'll touch upon this later, but running enough regen to make it worth dropping Faster ES start and Wicked Ward combo take a very high amount of investment but IMO is more powerful once fully invested into. (We are talking 20-30 exalts levels of investment)

  • I don't have friends to play with how do I find groups?

You can post in Global 820 that you are a Aura Bot LF Work, just please make sure that you split loot. You are not a slave. Aura bots do NOT work for Free.




Pros:
+ Can run up to ALL Auras + Aspect
+ Can run Rare Fossil Essence Crafted Hubris for massive ES gains
+ High ES Pool (potentially over 10k ES WITHOUT a clarity watcher's eye)
+ Wicked Ward is Insane survivability makes you almost immortal when ES recharge starts
+ Perma Group Fortify (If you want)
+ Over 50% Chance to shock thanks to smite to you and allies
+ Blind All Enemies around you thanks to Flesh and Stone Aura (Sand Stance)
+ Can take Elemental Equilibrium (+ Avatar of Fire if needed)
+ Can spec into +1 Curse if so desired
+ CI! no need for chaos resistance, nor elixir with Victario's
+ Can be very active play style if you so chose Vigilance Strike and Smite
+ A LOT of room for min-maxing and improvement, there's always something you can upgrade!
+ Unlike the Puny old Blood Magic Variant can use Clarity Extra ES Watcher's Eye for even more ES
+ With Cluster Jewels it is possible to reach even HIGHER levels of aura effectivness
(Currently at 206% GLOBAL Aura effect, and 435% for Wrath/Anger/Hatred and have Capped res at 90/90/90)

Cons:
- Can be rough to get up and running Much easier with Cluster Jewels.
- Skyforth adds a cost to entry to be able to run more than 2 DPS auras Cluster Jewels heelp run more auras too.
- Some Gear might require crafting from the end user as it may not be available or overpriced
- While you do have Wicked Ward, there is no ES Regen via Zealots Oath (Skyforth)
- Leveling can be a bit of a pain
- As with all Aura bots you require a carry to party with
- Corrupting/Buying Jewels can be expensive (especially if unlucky)
- Difficult to add multiple curses without significant cost to ES pool and Money




For Gear There are a few required Uniques and Then some upgrade paths down the line.
Cheap/Starting Gear

  • Chest


Victario's Influence is your Core Chest Piece, it boost the hell out of the socketed Auras and Reduces the mana resevation for 30% which is huge.

This is where we will be socketing our 6 Damage Auras (or 5 + an Empower) Such as Anger/Hatred/Wrath/Zealotry/Haste/Malevolence

Try to get a chest piece with 14-15% increased effect of non-curse auras find one with as much ES as you can afford, the AoE Roll does not matter at all, our radius will be so big that the impact is negligible.


  • Helmet


Alpha's Howl is the go to Aura Helm, its cheap, it gives global 8% Reduced Mana Reserved, +2 to Aura Gems for level 23 Purity Setup

It is possible to upgrade from a Alpha's Howl to a Rare Hubris crafted Via Fossils, but this requires more investment in other departments of the build that will be explained later into the guide.


  • Shield


You should be using a Shaper's or Hunter's Shield itemLevel 80+ (Prefferable an iLvl 84 Titanium Shield) rolled with Socketed Gems Have 15% Reduced Mana Reservation
They are not too hard to roll, you can spam Alteration untill you hit the mod (make sure its 15% not 10%) regal and craft Flat Energy Shield (or %increassed if theres already a flat roll)

Feel Free yo use Prism Guardian Early league before getting your shield and swapping to CI.


  • Amulet


An Shaped or Redeemer's Amulet wit 5% Reduced Mana Reseved mod is REQUIRED, we need as much Reduced Mana Reserved (or RMR) as possible and as youll see later 5% is a lot.
The mod can only roll on Shaped Amulets with itemLevel 82+ or Redeemer's Amulet itemLevel 75+, I Recomend an Onyx Amulet Base, since we'll be using Shaper's Touch Str is also ES, and we need a lot of Dex.

Fertile Catalyst to 20% to make the 5% RMR into 6%

Anoints: With introduction to Cluster Jewels and Anoints, it is no longer worth pathing all the way to duelist to pick up Champion of the Cause, so this will now be our annoint.

Early League The Jinxed Juju is a great started amulet until you can get your RMR one.


  • Weapon


Tried and True Empheral Edge, 50% Energy shield is a lot escpially from a weapon slot will help you with your ES Pool, Alternatively you can use Heartbreaker for A little less ES but Faster Start of ES Recharge Rate.


  • Belt


You can use a Bathed Breath for starters but you will want to eventually upgrade to an Darkness Entromed or a Stigian Vise Abyss Jewels with 1% Redcued Mana Resreved Corruption


  • Gloves


Shaper's Touch Gloves with +2 AoE or +2 Aura Corruption
With the nerf to Shaper's touch they now offer less ES than a good Rare glove, However if you swap to a Rare Hubris is is important to note that you will need a +2 AOE/Aura corruption on either your boots,gloves or helmet to be able to hit Level 23 purties.


  • Boots


For Starters you will want Sintreks, They provide a lot of ES, Movement Speed and help dex. If you chose to go the regen route these will be youre end game boots and i recommend you get them +2 AoE/Aura Corruption.


Skyforth, will be a big jump of RMR, and make it so you need less RMR corrupted Jewels.


  • Rings


I recommend searching for Moonstone rings on poe.trade with a High ES and %ES if you can affort, Nice stats to have are Str, Int, Dex too sicne you might be lacking those.
Vinvinsect is a great Ring to socket Discpline in for +5 Aura Gems if you can afford the increased mana cost for it.


  • Jewels


There are a few required Jewels: Conqeror's Efficency, Conqueror's Potency and Might of the Meek (Ideally you want them to also have the 1% RMR Corruption but they can be a little expsensive so youll need to either corrupt your own or save up money for them)

As well as any Jewel (can be any as long as it has corruption, such as threshold jew) with 1% Reduced Mana Corruption, you can use cheap jewels until you can afford/corrupt your own, To slowly corrupt your own i recommend rolling for flat ES on abyss jewels regaling and corrupting should be much cheaper on than buying them out right.

If you want Party Fortify make sure you are running 1 "The Vigil"

Intuitive Leap IS ONLY WORTH IT WITH corruption since it gives you RMR and saves you 3 points 2 (see spoiler bellow)
PLEASE DO NOT USE INTUITIVE LEAP IF IT DOES NOT HAVE 1% CORRUPTION use a regular Jewel with corruption instead, and path to charisma.

For Might of the Meek you want to socket this in the Right Scion Jewel as shown bellow and NOT spec a point into the Aura Notable. Placing the Jewel here will lose us a total of 3% effect of auras and 50% AoE (not very important) but more importantly it will make the 4% Reduced mana Reserved nod into 6%, effectively giving us a very cheap (15c) 2% (or 3 with corruption) Jewel, as well as making the ES nodes up top 9% Energy Shield.
Might of the Meek
Flasks
First lets get this out of the way, I've had a lot of people come to me and ask for help and one think I have noticed way to often is the use of Life Flasks While CI.
Life Flask DO NOT WORK for ES, they do nothing for a CI build.

  • Affixes on Flasks:

There are 3 things we absolutely must solve: Bleed Immunity (of Staunching), Ignite Immunity (of Dousing), Cure Immunity (of Warding)

If you are not Using a Alpha's Howl and are using a Rare Crafted Helmet like

You will not have the Freeze Immunity from Alpha's Howl which you will need to get (of Heat)
Another good affix to have on flask is shock immunity (of Grounding)

For Prefixes Both Chemist's and Experimenter's are great it just depends on what you personally prefer.

  • Now for Flasks to run

There are a lot of different options but there is 2 flask that in my opinion Everyone should run those Jade Flask and Quick Silver. Jade is a Massive Armour boost thanks to Iron Reflex + the good amount of %Evasion we have from Int (thanks to Shaper's Touch. Quicksilver is just a must to be able to keep up with any fast carry so you do now fall behind.

  • Other flask options:


If you want more Physical Damage Mitigation (Really good for Legion)

Any or All Elemental Flasks you think you might need.

Silver Flask: If you want more speed!

Wise oak: If you have all your resits balanced and another way to get Freeze or Ignite Immunity (like a watchers eye)


Second Comment has More info for Harvest Gear and how to craft High end EndGame gear.
Endgame Gear

  • Chest


Ideally at this point you want a 6L Victario's to use an Empower (but if anything you can always use a 5L)


  • Helmet


Rare Hubris with Enchant vs Alpha's Howl With Enchant

Rare Hubris's (iLvl84) with enchants are generally very cheap only a few chaos up to 1 exalt and will cost you much much less to craft than an Alpha's Howl with Enchant all while giving you over 1.5k more ES than an alpha's howl.
Here are some reduced mana resevation enchants that you can chose from in the end they will all act the same and in rare circumstances only a 1% difference:
15% RMR enchant of ANY Aura that is 50% rervation that you are NOT running in your chest or 20% RMR of any other non purity aura you are running.

Once you have your Base you want to quality it up to 28-30% quality using perfect fossiles then craft it using either of 2 methodes.
Essence Spam with Loathing Essence.
or
Craft a good ES base with open suffix, and Slam a Redemeer's Exalt hoping to hit RMR. if it does proceed to crafting via Dense+Bound.

The Redemeer + Fossil method will more easily yield you high es values tha essence method and is recommend if you want as much es as possible.

However you will lose 3% RMR comapred to Alphas's howl so you will need more jewels before you can make the swap

Alpha's Howl is fine to keep if you are playing guardian since you generate a lot of base es for free.


  • Weapon


For an end game weapon what you want is a Rare Redemeer's weapon usually Tiger Hook (for the dodge) with "Auras from your Skills grand 2% increased Damage".
Bonus mods you would want to roll: +1 Level of all Cold/Lighting/Spell Gems, Hatred Aura effect, Cold Exposure on hit.


  • Gloves


No changes here but if you're running a Hubris you should place your purities in glove from now on for level 23 Purties
If you have a really good rare glove and have the +2 elsewhere feel free to use those if they net you more es.


  • Boots


At this point you should be running skyforth if you're not regen base and Sintrek's if you are.


  • Belt


The only way to get more Reduced Rservation is through Abyss Jewels in Styigian Vise/ Darkness Entromed
At some point you will have to drop your bathed breath for these if you want to run more Auras.


  • Jewels

If you already have all your Jewels Corruption on all your Jewels (Belt/Tree/Uniques) you should focus on upgrading them to ones with flat ES where ever possible.
For Clusters Jewels you should see that section in detail.



As your slowly getting more and more Jewel Sockets and more and more RMR Jewels, you will be able to slowly run more and more auras.
List of Auras

  • REQUIRED AURAS:

-Purity of Ice
-Purity of Fire
-Purity of Lightning
-Purity of Elements
-Discipline

  • Defensive Auras

-Flesh and Stone
-Grace
-Determination
-Vitality

  • Offensive Auras

-Anger
-Hatred
-Wrath
-Zealotry
-Haste
-Malevolence
-Pride

  • Other Auras

-Clarity
-Precision
-Aspect of the Spider
-Banner (Dread or War)

Link's and Setups depend vastly on the amount of total Reduced mana Reserved you have. Here are some rules to guide you.

You should always run your Offensives Auras in your Chest which ever one it is you are running.
You should Run any another High Mana Reservation Auras Left on your Shield such Grace/Determination.
You should NEVER Use an Enlighten in your Chest and Shield. it is ALWAYS Better to move an instead.
You should ALWAYS try to run your 3 Purities in a +2 Level Item (Alpha's Howl or glove corruption)
Always Try to fit in at least a Level 1 Precision and Clarity, they have small flat costs.

REMEMBER your survivability is more important than MAX OMEGA DMG but cant stay alive, if you're dead, you're not giving anything and you'll be forced to do the walk of shame (Turn on all auras one by one)


Passive Tree and PoB

Bandits: KILL ALL

Make sure you have Localidenty's forked PoB see link bellow for detilas on installation.
https://github.com/PathOfBuildingCommunity/PathOfBuilding/wiki/Installing-this-Fork

PoB with 3 different trees depending on investment
https://pastebin.com/9hntzU3g

Current 3.11 PoB: https://pastebin.com/r111udT1

Key Stones

  • Chaos Inoculation

- We're going CI cause we will be reserving all our Auras on our Mana, this will also allow us to never have to worry about chaos damage and map mods such as desecrated ground. And since we're running Victario's we will not have to run Coruscating Elixir with CI.

  • Wicked Ward

The Addition of Wicked Ward is amazing for this build, Paired with Faster Start of Energy Shield Recharge Rate from tree and craft on rings, it is an amazing defensive tool making you almost unkillable once your recharge starts. The Down side doesn't affect us at all since we will be running skyforth and will not have any Regen.

  • Elemental Equilibrium

If your carry is doing Fire or Cold Damage (AND YOU HAVE NO SOURCES OF FLAT DAMAGE) you can spend 1 point into EE and proc it with Smite which will only deal lightning damage. It is a great damage boost! If however your carry is Lightning Damage please take Avatar of Fire as well.

  • Zealot's Oath

This Key stone does NOT work when you start running with a skyforth. So if you take it prior to help with survival respect it once you equipe a skyforth.



Ascendency

  • Order

Normal: Commander of Darkness
Cruel: Essence Glutton or Mistress of Sacrifice
Merc: Essence Glutton or Mistress of Sacrifice (Which ever you didnt take)
Uber: Plaguebringer

Note: Essence Glutton can be replaced with Corpse Pact should you want to shock/chill.

Pantheon

Major:
Brine King until you get a skyforth.
Lunaris Maxed out for Mapping
Solaris Maxed our for Bossing

Minor:
Garukhan Maxed for Mapping
Abberath for Mapping if Burning Ground Annoys you and for Atziri
Yugul Maxed out for Shaper/Elder


  • What is a Timeless Jewel?

Thanks to Cluster Jewels, Timeless Jewels are no longer worth it or necessary for aurabot.



With the introduction to Anointing Amulet's and specific uniques from Blight League we now get 1 Free notable to allocate

The answer to what node is the best to anoint, its very simple. Champion of the Cause. If you are poor you can opt for Umost Intellect for some ES until you can afford 1 Gold oil for Champion of the Cause. the oils are : Gold - Crimson - Teal



With the introduction of Cluster Jewels with Delirium 3.0 A lot has change in terms of pathing the tree, and what we can achieve.

Here's the list of notables and their effect that are good to use for aura bot depending on what you want to do.
Notables

The Reduced Reservation Ones : Generally we one of each.
- Pure Aptiude : Found on Small Lighting Resistance Clusters.

- Pure Guile : Found on Small Cold Resistance Clusters.

- Pure Might : Found on Small Fire Resistance AND Medium Aura effect Clusters


The Specific Aura Effect ones : All Found on the Aura Effect Medium Cluster Jewels.




The Generic Aura Effect ones : All Found on the Aura Effect Medium Cluster Jewels.



You will be socketing Clusters in the Jewel Socket near CI and Near Avatar of Fire, if you have points for a third Cluster, you will be be using the Templar Outer socket.
Sockets





Your primary goal should be to reach, 200% Aura Effect for Purities using a combination of the 6% minors, First Among Equals/replenshing presence and Pure Commanders.

Upgrades

If you have more currency to spend here are some neat ways to upgrade you cluster jewel setups.

Using Large Jewel sockets (8 passives) with 2 Jewel Socket

or you can use Voices unique Jewel tho, it is expensive in terms of both points and currency.



Mandatory Things:
- 1 Jewel Socket on EACH Medium Jewel Used
- 1 Pure Might on one Medium Jewel
- 1 of EACH small Jewel (with 2 passives), one with Pure Guile one with Pure Aptitude
- If you lack aura effect, PURE COMMANDERS to hit 200% on purities is more important than damage
- ADAPT ADAPT ADAPT to your play style/build/items and carry

So what notables should you prioritize?

Ideally you wand to prioritize getting 200% for your purities (which will allow them to cap your max res at 90%)
After that you would want to get Either Vengful Commander/Starlard Commanders or one of the Genric Aura Effect Notables to boost the dps your dmg auras provide or defensive auras.

Keep in mind that the 3% Attack and Cast speed per aura mod from necro scales with each individuals aura effect, meaning that if you have 400% effect of wrath and 200% for other auras, wrath will be giving 3% (+400%) and other auras will be giving 3% (+200%).



I will be writing this slowly, as i wanted to get this guide out sooner rather than later.

CURRENT GEAR AND POB AS OF : HARVEST 3.11 AUGUST 9TH
there will also be a gear crafting explanation should people chose to craft their own gear.


-Gear and Explanations for gear choices
Gear


Nothing to explain here 6L Victario's with +1 with Empower + my 5 Damage Auras



Pretty much the Best in slot weapon you can have +1 All Spell gems and +1 Specific Element spell Gems with Hatred Aura effect and Auras grant dmg mod

"Trigger Socketed Spells when you use a skill" is amazing and i welcome everyone to always try and get, the reason Desecrate is not in here is because we want to be able to cast it ourselves for the 10% more damage near corpses and Chill/shock if we have that Ascendancy.

I chose cold because i love min maxing Hatred but the +1 can be any of the 3 elements you wish. This also allows one of your purities to be 23 Regardless of where you put it (This will come in handy later)



Shield is pretty much as good as it can get Its T1Flat T2% T1Hybrid i settled on this because my sanity couldn't take rolling for double T1 anymore. 10% aura effect if very nice, and ES on block is amazing when you have Glancing blows now imagine how broken it is when you dont and are block capped.

Since i am not running Determination and am running Sublime-Form notable (30% grace reservation) the only auras i was able to put in shield we're Vitality, Haste, Flesh and stone or a Purity.
the best option was therefor Haste, Vitality, Flesh and Stone until i got my +2 Weapon. Once that happened i was able to put purity of ice in it making it more efficient (35% reservation aura vs 25%)

I am thinking removing Hybrid/Life Prefix and going for +1 Lightning, its not a huge es loss (~200 total) to give +1 to wrath/purity of lighting/smite.



The rest of my good auras are in a +2Aura 5%Reservation hubris with haste enchant.

Very simple helm +2 Fractured mod is from Essence of Delirium, you can check in next section on how to craft it.

Auras here are just Whatever purities need +2 still and the rest of good auras i want to have +2.



Gloves are Synthesized for 10% Mana reservation. This can be any aura so long as its not an aura you have a Reservation notable for. High ES High int for max ES gains.

Best to get are Vitality/Discipline/any Purity you dont have a Rervation notable/Determination if you are using it.

Links are there because Second wind also gives another charge to Enruding Cry, and makes phase run's cooldown a but lower.



Another Synthesized item with reservation, this time different than the one on gloves, crafted for as much es and as much MS as possible.

Smite + Awakened Geno because smite is op and we want to scale that.
Didn't link awakened geno to War banner because theres not much benifits from doing that. but since we wont be affected by it we will no longer have 100% chance to hit. so i chose not to.
Desecrate is there because it needs to be somewhere.




Rings are pretty basic Grace in +2/ES Ring (probably one the worst items i have but im lazy to get a better one for now. Could get +3 with more ES and stats but i have other projects at the moment.

2nd Ring: Discipline in vivinsect standard stuff here.

Amulet is Synthesized again (Starting to see a pattern here.. I MISS SYNTHESIS..)
Tho amulet can be anything Technically speaking 6%RMR + +1Cold + +1Int Gems is much much better, however In std i have a 12% amu, and i didnt want to over spend crafting an amu for the league so i settled with synthesis since the base was cheap (somehow) and is fairly easy to craft them with good es.



Belt just a Stygian vise with Strength and ES nothing special with an RMR Jewel

I am working however on a new belt at the moment its missing

Its missing T1 flat and t1% es (extremly hard to get) but this is my project at the moment.
%attribute is great help with requirements if need be as well as ES.
CDR is for QoL on Trigger Scepter, Enduring Cry and Phase Run.
Flask chance not to consume is also QoL but Redcued Dmg from crits is good hear too from shaper.


For Clusters I am running 3 Large (no voices) clusters.
The reason is the following :
Spoiler
-You cannot run 3 Voices on Necro there's simply not enough points for that.
This means you'll only have 2 voices and this 6 Mediums total.
This nets you 12 Notables.

however if you run 3 Large clusters with each vengeful commander you then have still 6 Medium Clusters, but you also get +3 Vengeful commanders. (+3 Widespread destruction potentially).

This allows us to potentially get 9 Vengeful commanders for a massive 270% aura effect of Wrath Hatred Anger. much better than 2 voices. also a lot cheaper than 5~3 passive voices.

It also allowed us to potentially get 1% mana reserved on the large clusters should we so chose to corrupt them while voices you cant.


Cluster 1 :

Large 3 Notable 8 PASSIVE (1 being Vengeful) it's important to have 3 notables for vengeful to be on the way
Notables on mediums are simple Stacking First among + Vengeful
I am running 1 pure aptitude and its here. Rest of Jewels are just any 1% RMR

Cluster 2 :

Large 3 Notables this time its 9passive simply because its corurpted for 1% otherwise id be using an 8 passive.
not worthy things to mention here : all Vengeful + First among stacking
with a small cluster giving us Sublime Form (Very important) this is the BEST reservation notable we can get.

Cluster 3:

Another 8 pas vengeful large + Mediums Stacking Firt among + Vengeful.
with my Conqueror's 1% corrupted.

Rest of Jewels:

I would get 1% inspired learning but i dont need so i saved cost here. Rest is pretty self exploratory.



Rumi's is a must to cap out our attack block.
Basalt for some much needed phys mitigation.
Stibinit and Jade for massive evasion during hard content
you can replace Stibnite with onslaught for when you need to go fast
Quicksilver go zoom zoom yes.



-How to Craft
crafting gears

Chest


1. Buy or Drop a Victario's

2. 6L it if not already.

3. Make sure Aura effect is 15%

4. Throw to corruption room or vaal orb.

5. Repeat from step 1 still +1Gems, +2 Aura or 2 AoE


Scepter


1. Acquire any iLvl 82 (Precisely i82 to reduced mod pool of unwanted crafts) Scepter base you want.

IF YOU CHOSE A WAND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE SMITE.

I chose Karui Scepter because it has the fastess attack speed we can get at this ilvl reasonably. And damage is irrelevant, you can also pick any scepter you like the skin of.


2. 28-30 Quality you can also Hillock Transportation 28 Quality later if you so chose (28vs30 makes no difference)
(DO NOT ADD ANY HARVEST ENCHANTS YET)


3. [2 Options] A: Fast and more expensive (Recommended) B: Slow Cheaper (NOT recommended


OPTION A: Fossil Method Split Method:
3.1. this is the recommended method because you click a million times less.
Use [4s] Method : Aetheric + Corroded + Metallic + Shuddering
or
Use [3s] Method : Correded + Metallic + Shuddering
4s has 4 Avrg Tries while 3s has 11 Avrg tries either is fine. 3s is cheaper on Avrg.

3.2. Use harvest target removes to remove down to 2 Affixes +1 to Level of all Spell Skill Gems and a random one.

3.3. Use Beast "Fenumal Plagued Arachnid": Split an Item in 2 each with half the mods. this will Give you 2 Magic Items one of witch will only be +1 to Level of all Spell Skill Gems


OPTION B: Alteration Spamming Method
3.1 Spam Alts until you hit +1 to Level of all Spell Skill Gems. Average cost 1844 Alts.


3.2 Make sure it has no suffix mods.


4. Imprint item using Craicic Chimeral Beast.


5. Regal Item Make sure its a removable Affix
(If Prefix make sure its removable (EXCEPT CASTER))
(If Suffix make sure its removable (EXCEPT CASTER))


5.1 IF -> Suffix is not target removable
You can Gamble to save item in 4 ways.
-Yolo Anul, (50:50)
-Remove non-caster add Caster. (Pray for a elemental/chaos Caster mod) (Best odds)
-If suffix Add Suffix, Remove Prefix Beast (Worst option)
-If Prefix Reforge Item keeping Suffixes Harvest Craft
(If this fails restore imprint and go back to Step 4)


6. Make sure all Prefixes are blocked using harvest Augments
Use: Lightning, Fire, Chaos, Attack. NOT Caster, Cold.


7. Craft "Cannot Roll Caster mods"


8. Slam Redeemer's Orb. We are looking for Specifically T1 Hatred Aura effect.
(If you are okay with settling for T2 Hatred Aura effect, you are looking for T1, T2 Hatred aura effect OR Auras from Skills grant 2% damage.)
(If this fails restore imprint and go back to Step 4)


9. Once you have Have Hatred aura effect T1 :
Augment Influence modifier. We are looking for Auras from Skills grant 2% inc dmg


10. All mods are removable Except Hatred and the Aura so we will target remove them as we slam them
% chance to inflict Cold Exposure on Hit -> Remove Cold
% increased Movement Speed if you've Hit an Enemy Recently -> Remove Speed

(Repeat from Step 9 until you hit Aura's from skills grant 2%)


11. Remove Cannot Roll Caster mods. and Craft Cannot Roll Attack Mods.


12. Target Remove the 2 random prefixes.


13. Augment X Element (X can be any element of your choice Cold/Fire/Lightning) Personally i recommend Cold or Lightning (Lightning being easier to hit) I will be using X to denote whatever element you chose.


14. If it didn't hit +1 of all X spell skill Gems Augment X Mod Again.


15. If it still didnt hit Spam "Remove Random X Mod and Add Random X mod" Harvest until you hit +1 of all X spell skill Gems


16. Remove Cannot roll attack mods and craft Trigger Socketed spells when you use a skill.


17. Add Quality does not inc Physical Damage // Grants 1% inc AoE Per 4% Quality


AND DONE you have yourself a BIS scepter
Estimated Costs:
-Fossils [~300c]
-Split Beast [200c]
-Imprint+Redeemer's Exalted Orb
[~8tries for T1 Hatred] [1200c]
OR
-Imprint+Redeemer's Exalted Orb
[~3tries for T2+Hatred/Auramod] [600c]

-Augment Influence+Remove [~6Tries] [9ex]
-Cannot Roll attack mods [1ex]
-Getting +1 Cold [~62 Tires] [16ex]
-Getting +1 Lightning [~42 Tries] [11ex]

Estimated Cost: 50~55ex


Helmet



1. Acquire No influence i84+ Hubris Circlet with Enchant.


2. 30 Quality Using Fossils.


3. Make Hubris magic and make imprint using Craicic Chimeral Beast


4. Scoure and use Essence of Delirium for +2 of Socketed Aura Gems


5. Fill out rest of suffixes using bench and harvest.


6. Use Harvest "Fracture a random Suffix" (Item must have 3 suffixes)


7. If Fracture misses Restore Imprint and go back to Step 3.


8. Once +2 Aura is Fractured. Use Deafening Essence of Loathing for 5% RMR.


9. Spam Essence until item has either good ES or Good Suffix such as T1~T2 Intelligence.


10. Use harvest crafting to Augement/Remove/ex Defence for as much ES as you're willing to pay.


(For Double T1 ES do the following)
1. Make sure there are no Prefixes or Just 1 Defence Prefix.


2. Use Remove Random/Add Random Defence until you have a T1 Flat or T1 %ES roll.


3. Craft %ES/Life Hybrid to block hybrid life/es and hybrid mana/es


4. Augment Defense and pray.


5. If ES roll is not T1, Remove craft and Do "Remove Random Defense"


6. If Removed T1 ES Go back to Step 2.


7. If Removed Bad ES Mod go back to Step 3.


8. Once you have Double T1 ES. "Augment Random Life"


9. Remove Random Life Add Random Life until T1 Life/ES Hybrid.


10. Divine Intelligence.


11. Randomize Defenses till Both T1ES Rolls are perfect


12. Randomize Life till Hybrid Life/ES is perfect.


Note: You can yolo Aug Defence for last mod. But Hybrid life is only marginally worse than hybrid es while also being "easy" to hit T1


Shield



1. Acquire i86 Redeemer Influence Titanium Spirit Shield.


2. 30 Quality it.


3. Alt spam till you hit T1 increased effect of non-curse auras as your only redeemer mod.


4. Buy any donner shaper shield with "Socketed Gems have 15% Reduced mana reservation" as its only shaper mod.


5. Use Awakener orb (First on Shaper Shield (Donner item) then on Redeemer titanium spirit shield.


6. If you hit a Non-targetable 3rd suffix Empty Prefixes using Harvest Targeted Anuls or Suffixes cannot be change + Scoure
Then Use harvest "Remove Non-Influence mod and add a random influence mod"

This will remove the 3rd suffix and hopefully add a removable affix. If this hits a non-removable suffix influence mod you will have to Yolo Anul.


7. Once Shield is just Redeemer Aura effect + Shaper 15% RMR Use harvest to block out finale suffix with a resistance.


8. Augment Defence.


9. Remove Random / Add Random Defence until you hit T1%es or T1 Flat ES


10. block hybrid life/es by crafting.


11. Augment Defence and pray.


12. if not another t1 mod Remove craft and 50:50 Remove Random Defense.


13. if it fails restart from step 9.


14. if successful restart from step 10.
(Note: If you hit T1Flat + T2% it is not bad to settle here.)


15. Once double T1 (or T1+T2) is achieved Remove resistance suffix via harvest remove.


16. You now have 2 option.
Option 1: Craft a prefix to block all prefixes and YOLO slam defense on the last suffix this has a 76% chance to hit ES on block and a 24% chance to hit chance to evade if blocked recently.

We're looking for ES on block which is an amazing mod. but it's a lil risky coming this far since only way to fix is is to yolo "remove defense again" if it fails.

Option 2: Craft 18% quality with stat of your choice.


17. Here too we have 2 options.
Option 1 : Augment Lightning and Remove/Add Lightning till +1 All Lightning(or Cold) Spell Skill gems

Option 2 : Augment Life and Remove/Add Life till T1 ES/Life Hubrid.


18. Randomize Defences for Perfect ES on T1 mods.


19. Randomize Life for perfect Hybrid ES Roll.


20. Use Harvest "Reroll Suffixes with Lucky Values" this is bassically a Lucky suffix only Divine. till Perfect rolls.
(Recraft quality if it wasnt perfect)


Glove



1.Purchase a Synthesized Sorcerer glove preferably i84+


2. Spam Reforge including Defense mod, Defense mods are more common.


3. Stop at satisfying es values.

This is a Pure support build, it is meant to support a carrym you are not meant to do damage or kill things.

For PoB as mentioned in the thread you need to update to LocalIdentity's Path of Building Fork

How do you search for the mana reserved corruption? can you send me a link to POE trade?
I have low phys.reduction, how to improve it!
no cull, try again. AG cull (Kingmaker) does not count, as it has too low of a range.
Hey there, I notice you are using Sin Trek's with multiple replenishing pressence/zealots oath. I'm attempting to make a similar build but I have skyforths therefor I have low es regen and my survivablity is pretty awful. Is there a trick to surviving with these or would it be better to just scrap them and go for sin treks? I'm assuming that's why you are running with sins. First time doing an aura bot and also first time running CI so I'm genuinely confused about what to do.

Update*

I'm noticing a huge difference in survivability.
Swapped my Jordan's with some Treks, copied your tree, added more clusters. I switched up some stalwarts inplace of vengeful for more Es/Eva/Arm. Figure this is my first aurabot and I want some wiggle room for mistakes rather than doing the walk of shame. I'm running 15 aura's at the moment I need to get a few more rmr gems to be where I would actually like to be, but its coming along well nicely! Thanks for the guide!
OP Will Surely Deliver
