3.11 - Stress-Free PoE! TRIGGER HAPPY: No Required Items! 1-Button Play! SSF League Start-End!

so been leveling with your build abit its not bad just can be slow, but then still a low level was dying sometimes then i got this shield not to sure if it helps but seems ok https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Daresso%27s_Courage hopefully the link works but like the build up to now can't wait to do maps
i tried to phys to cold but its about the same, so i just reverted back to your version... as the full force setups are just too nice. however using precision on blood magic is very very nice! :o

could i combine reckoning/riposite in 1 helm sacraficing melee physical damage, to free up sockets? or is this just a bad idea? i have lost tempest/cull to the change i made and have no socket for a warcry at the moment, i could get an unset ring to solve this but what do you think? :o

more detail on this in a post below :)..

i have that shield too its very nice, especially in reduce block maps :)
I switched to this build from your zombie build.

For some reason as soon as I got to maps with the zombies the game crashed nearly every other map. No idea why and I have run slow Mo on higher maps in other leagues with a lot more going on in the maps and not had as many issues. This league has been a bit odd on the PS4 for whatever reason.

So I set it aside and moved onto to trigger happy instead and have been making steady progress through maps without nearly as many issues. Had some interesting items drop, a good Phys damage cluster jewel and crafted some decent items (I think). Currently running low reds and hope I can keep pushing further into the atlas progression going forward.

Thanks as always for your guides and for being an inspirational part of the poe community (love the podcast, tagz is ok too I guess 😜).
goodbye resolute technique.

removing tempest shield + culling strike, to go precision on blood magic here is the tree and result.

My tree (level 85) two points spent grabbing versatility + resoloute parts gone, gonna anoint brutal blade so i gain frenzys on block. (still have 15 points to level 100, if you wanna grab that ranger cluster and mess with that too)

using some green gems atm as my 6l is corrupt and i just did what i could to make it work for now.

having a bit of an omen with finding a diamond flask at the mo, il trade it for sulphur when i find it.

my sword sucks atm from some experimenting i was doing.

i need an unset ring for flame dash to get my warcry back, its offhand atm.

i personally think you should implement this change into your build guide! cause the facts are. we only die to a 1 shot anyways. so whats 300 life, odds are if we take enough damage to get one shot that 300 life does not save you anyways. the ability to diamond flask + scale crit/crit multi is too good of a perk.

pob link for anyone wanting to do this, if you want a movement skill use an unset ring. i have added a diamond flask to "required items" so now 3 items are mandatory its still your stress free poe though :).

edit: just want to add im not saying change your build guide, but add this as an "option B" for advanced players. :)

final edit:
so thought id give some more fair feedback (felt like what i posted yesterday was a bit ungrateful/ranty), this builds great but it does have a few setbacks..

its cons
-blights
-deliriums
-legions
-pack clearing / mapping speed

its perks
-Great boss killer, you can just stand there and just laugh at most.
-very tanky build
-easy levelling up due to rarely ever dying
-very reliable considering you can use practically any items.
-pizza guy at the door mid map? no problem just walk away dont even needa portal out.

what i think the build needs..

-it needs herald of ice or an explody chest to be much more map friendly, especially where the legions/blights/deliriums are concerned.

this would allow to just constantly run blood mode solving the rare dps + pack clear all in one. without having to just stand there and wait for them to rip.

although i havent looked into it yet as im still in the early stages of maps, a shaped shield with 15% reduced mana could allow you to pull this off. (socketing hatred blood/flesh)

the only problem is you would have to say goodbye to one of the 4 link lazy fighter setups (id love to know what one is the "weakest")

another change i would make is dropping resolute technique for precision on blood magic (instead of tempest/cull) this would allow you to respec most the left side of the tree and theres more detail on this on page 21 with a pob too.

doing this would allow you to 4 link herald of ice (instead of one block setup) hoi<assassins mark<curse on hit<ice bite - now your generating powercharge + frenzy during map clear.

-this does add one cons to the build though since we now do ele damage no more ele reflect (witch is why i want to make the bane char i mention below) in my head im trading that one cons to get rid of the above 3 that really let the build down IMO.
-----------
i plan to eventually put all this into practice and turn this character into the same blocky god it is, just an ice build as it opens up a lot of windows for my play style. if i think it worked well enough i will be sure to share it. :)
------
im also going to be rolling another character (bane) as i have learned through my first SSF play though that its nicer to just have a couple characters on the go, thanks for my first SSF experience. :)
--------

ok so ive started to work on it, heres what its looking like atm, ive lost flesh and stone/1 block setup, till i can get a shaped shield or come up with some other idea, its feeling very promising in maps, and looks like i wont need level 20 precision, its level 1 and im 93% hitchance... so the life it reserved is basically irrelevant atm. :o. dex is looking a bit tight also but i can gain 20 more by simply taking those two jewel sockets on dex path, and i took versatility cause thats a nice crit/dex node too. for now.

Spoiler





i set the counterattacks up like this now as our melee skill has more reliable damage and we simply dont need to rely on counterattacks as much ive got herald of ice on ele prolif atm but i may move that over to the attack (cant atm corrupt 6l) could really use a tabula to find the optimal setup lol. the counter attacks still punch big damage and you can still stand and watch the bosses die and its now freezing them because the sheer cold dps.

i went for 40% phys to cold convert on the tree, damage has gone thru the roof compared to the old setup :) looking promising considering i havent even taken it to path of building yet :). plan to get 25% more cold convert gloves also (its a jun craft) so il be rocking a ton of cold damage and still benefiting from all those phys nodes we have.

still got quite a maze of work to do to get this as perfect as i can whilst remaining SSF friendly for all that want to try it.
Hey Cchris07! Thanks for the feedback! I've had people give me the complete opposite of pros and cons that you provided. It's good to hear how different playstyles and expectations impact how people play. I hope you like your setup! I'd love to hear how the changes go in harsh maps! When you're finished with Bane of course ;). Thanks for the honest feedback!

Hey Livishan74! Levelling is always a different "game" than once you're setup for maps. I hope the process isn't too tedious for you. The key with melee builds is a weapon with good damage. Always be on the lookout for a better weapon.

That unique has a lot of great perks for this build, but no life. It's a good short-term shield until you can find one that gets you really excited.

I'm glad you're having a good time.

Ah, I'm sorry your changes didn't work out. But theory crafting is tons of fun hey? I took a look at your gear after the "ice" post and saw you you have equipped here. It's a really cool setup! It's some good stuff to think about for sure. I'll weigh the pros and cons of it all after the 3.12 patch notes and see where it all takes me. Awesome job!

Hey RiverGenie! I'm sorry Slow-Mo wasn't working well. A patch just came out yesterday that fixed a crash bug linked to Shield Charge. Maybe that was it? I hope so. But welcome to the Duelist side! I'm glad you're having a great time with it. It's fun to tank. I appreciate your kind words and taking the time to be so thoughtful. Well, except that Tagz part...who needs that guy hey? ;-) It's a pleasure seeing you around :).
