I like the build so far however i'm confused by unwavering crusade, This does absolutely nothing for us unless i'm missing something? Time of Need or Bastion of Hope atleast do alittle bit of something


it's 6% phys mitigation and ~100 ES regen, not game changing so you could move the points yea.

You also are missing some catalysts on your rings. The conversion really helps in Heists. I am also enjoying this build as my league starter.

Take care.
Conversion is big, true.

Actually, Unwavering Crusade is the aura one for your allies.. I misread your post somehow, Unwavering Faith is a talent that you can use while not doing much it is something compared to unwavering crusade which does absolutely nothing. I apologize.
Can an Ascendant version of this build work in a similar way? Apart from the +10% more damage, charge generation, regen and ES, it would be almost the same tree.

Would work fine nothing in Guardian is a hard requirement.

So I am relatively new to Path of Exile starting out mid Harvest and I've never played a LowLife or energy shield based build before. Bearing that in mind i have a few questions that might be obvious to others.

1) The build uses two 'Call of the Brotherhood' rings which give lightning to cold conversion, I don't get why it is important to do cold damage instead of lightning. I also don't get how the +% lightning damage stat works with damage that is converted to cold. Could anyone explain why this is important?

2) Gems, links and aura's. It's a bit unclear what gems i should put in what item and what aura's should use blood magic. I've found out bits and pieces in the gear section and in the Path of Building links, but I'm running into trouble trying to fit all the aura's. I'm not sure why that is. It's either gear, passive points or having gems in the wrong slots. Right now my gear looks like this:
Blood Magic: Wrath, Discipline and Hatred
Normal Auras: Zealotry, Herald of Thunder and Clarity (level 1)

That leaves out Precision and Herald of Ice. Hopefully i am using the correct auras.

I can't fit Herald of Ice in there with my current mana, I hope someone could point out why that is.
I don't understand why Precision is used at all, i could fit it in though.

3) What (good) options do I have to use in my other skill slots? Besides aura's, Storm Brand and Flame Dash? What about curses, should i use a curse? And which one? I'm using conductivity now but maybe a curse for cold damage is better? What about marks? are those worth using?
What level should I be before moving onto the ES version of the build rather than armour?

No problem! Let's see here:

1. Converting fully allows us to use both lightning and cold scaling for our dps, since basically lightning IS cold it all gets added together. Hatred + Wrath is already massive damage and there are several other examples of this.

2. Your herald is linked to Arcane Surge looks like, that will increase its reservation. The PoB imports should have each skill group assigned to an item slot all correctly. If there's more than one skill group that means its a double 2 link not a 4 on that item, because of blood magic stuff.

3. The endgame version of the build curses with ele weakness through a glove corrupt, if you want to use one before that use Frostbite because your dealing cold damage mainly.
