Hello,
i am not good in theory and need your help.

i have some cluster jewels and i would know your opinion.

medium cluster jewel:
55 % crit chance + 20 % increased damage

large cluster jewel:
50 % spell damage

what is "better" ? (i have too this cluster jewel : Megalomaninac Medium cluster jewel : darting movements / overloard /(one useless skill = totems)

are there any points from skilltee we can take to add them to cluster jewels?


I would be very happy to hear your suggestions.

sorry google translation.

How many points are you going to spend to take these passive skills? I don't think your cluster jewels are worth the skill points given that the standard passive tree offers you good scaling.

The best thing you can do is to load your character in PoB and check if these cluster jewels are worth it.

If you simply want DPS or ES, you don't need cluster jewels. I recommend Overlord because it grants fortify, which is only accessible via cluster jewels.
Edit: I found a good use of cluster jewels, but this is recommended at level 96 or later. I'll add this information to the guide soon.

Thanks N0esy, great build!

I nearly quit the league until I found this post. I spent days getting the currency together and it was 100% worth it. This is THE chase build that I've been after and I've had a lot of fun with it.

I'm probably only about 90% of the way optimized, but I stopped trying to min/max because the build can already do anything in its current state. I've been able to face tank double boss wave 20 Simulacrums with horrible mods. In some cases, I've killed wave 15+ Simulacrum bosses before realizing that they had spawned. Even juiced up 5 orb delirium maps are really easy.

- 10%+ ovecapped all resists
- 7.41 APS while in combat (according to in game character sheet) without Onslaught
- 8.9k ES. Could get more, but I don't really see a need to.
- No second curse. Again, I didn't feel the investment was worth it considering how the build is already performing. I just socketed in Arcane Surge with my Vortex instead.
- Using Dying Sun, but only because I had one and I wasn't using an Onslaught flask. It definitely helps a bit with clear.
- Using Inspiration Support instead of Increased Critical Strikes Support, despite not having Bottled Faith. I have the currency for Bottled Faith and it would be DPS boost by increasing my crit, but my DPS is already really good.



I had to corrupt 25+ pairs of gloves before I hit these. There were none up for sale when this build was first posted.





EDIT: Forgot to mention that just using Flame Dash felt a bit restrictive. I think it contributed to a few deaths. I found I wasn't using Phase Run much, so I swapped in Dash + Second Wind and that definitely feels smoother.

Noesy - Curious your thoughts on running Atziri's Reflection vs. an ES shield.

Looking at POB

Atziri's Reflection
-------------------------------------------------------------------
- +12% Evade
- +6% MS
- Easier time balancing resistances due to +30% all res
- Curse immune so can drop the Silver Flask of Warding and run Cinderswallow (assuming source of Fire Dmg to Spells)


Downsides
- Lose the opportunity for +1 / +2 frenzy charges, but can find the AS elsewhere (e.g. the nodes below Retribution on skill tree)
- Spell Dmg on ES shield is always up. Cinderswallow damage requires flask to be up.
- Higher dex requirement

Hi, I think atziri's reflection is a good shield for this build. But I think a well-rolled rare shield is better. My shield gives me more damage than atziri's mirror (increased curse effect) and cinderswallow (10% increased damage taken) combined, although it's not easy to craft this kind of shield.


In addition, I just started to use rare cluster jewels and got Hex Breaker (immune to curses whlie channelling), so I can use cinderswallow on top of this rare shield. That said, I would probably use a non-unique silver flask because cinderswallow uses too many charges (40/60), which is annoying in boss fights with phases. This build already has good sustain and doesn't need ES recovery on kill.



Running the build based on using Mjolner as a start. Currently selling all gear listed to work on my final league project. UE and Sirus 8 completed deathless with listed gear as well as 100% delirium influence challenges. Will entertain all reasonable offers either in full or by piece, Im not greedy. @xfgsdlol if interested. Great build and guide!




Thanks for the build. Best one ever. What should I upgrade next?

Hey to all,

The build is indeed solid and very strong,
I still don't have the watchers eye with the energy shield mod and the jewel with overlord,

I have 8k+ ES and sometimes my ES bounces fast hehe,
I´m guessing that those two items (Watchers and overlord) are very very strong,

I´m still learning how to play the build especially on bosses,
Some bosses can one shot me if i´m not careful,

I even got the light eater node to compensate the lack of the watchers eye,
This item is expensive,

Well, if anyone has any insight on the build that can help, I appreciate,

Cheers to all,
The guide has been updated.
1) A lot of explanation for less experienced players has been added.
2) My endgame gear has been added to the gear section.
3) The cluster jewel version of this build has been added. See the gear section.

@DawnOfDusk_
Do you want to sell or upgrade your gear?

@naxus123
Use aspect of the spider and the spider boots. See "budget option" in the gear section for details.

Thank you for the great feedback. I agree with you, this bulid does a lot of damage without min-maxing.
Dash is an interesting idea. Thank you for your insight.

@N0esy How did you calculate DPS? And what should I upgrade next beside leveling??
