[3.12] The Masked Esmeralda - Life Based Champion Cursebot

I'll be streaming from 21/09/2020 come join me.

[3.12] Vulnerability now causes ailments inflicted on cursed enemies to deal damage 20% faster instead of increased damage over time with physical damage and it no longer grants chance to maim. Punishment gives cursed enemies to take 50% increased damage while on Low Life, it's pretty bad. We can support poison builds now.


I've been playing support builds in previous leagues, so I wanted to this league too. I wanted to play crybot support like last league but warcries got nerfed to the ground, so I came up with this weird Champion cursebot amalgamation that boosts physical damage through the roof. Later I'm gonna add variants for other damage types.

So how much damage are we giving? Just ask your friend to paste this jewel into his build and place it in an empty jewel socket. Or hijack their build with import function and check for yourself.

Heretic's Veil is pretty much a nobrainer for us. It gives us blasphemy support and reduces mana reservation of socketed curses. Get one with curse effect enchant or with corrupt that affects level of curse gems (duration, aoe, curse).

This one is also a must since we're not playing Occultist we need to be able to curse hexproof enemies. It also gives us +1 curse.

Windshrieks give us another +1 curse and a lot of Curse AoE.

The last mandatory item is up to you, you can choose either:
-a corrupted amulet with +1 curse

-Doedre's Damming
-Vixen's Entrapment

Or any combination of above depending on how many curses you want to use, in the physical variant we are using 5 so we don't need all of these items. Vixen's entrapment casts socketed curses whenever you use a curse skill so you could self cast them instead of using blasphemy it frees up so mana which can let you cast some additional auras.

Hands of the high Templar with curse, aoe, duration lvl implicits is very good for us too.

Al Dhih reduces cooldown of warcries and lets you explode enemies.

Redblade Banner makes our warcries have infinte power and increase the duration of our taunts. You can also use a rare shield with reduced mana reservation.

Use other slots to cap resistances and get some hp.

Flasks are up to you but you're probably gonna need one like this:

cause we don't have a lot of mana.
For large jewels Voices is the best choice but it's really expensive. Second best choice is a large Physical with exploit weakness or:

we want Riot Queller and Veteran Defender on second and third slot otherwise it's gonna be on the opposite site of the jewel. Riot Queller is very rare so instead of it you can get Prodigious Defence or Gladiator's Fortitude.

This the is bread and butter of our build. Exploit weakness gives us 25% Vulnerability curse effect and Forbidden words reduces mana reserved for curses and gives us some more curse effect.

In small jewel sockets put small clusters with Fettle or regular jewels.
Bandits and Ascendancy
Bandits: kill all
Ascendancy order: Master of Metal > Inspirational > Conqueror > Worthy Foe
In helmet: Temporal Chains - Enfeeble - Vulnerability - Enlighten/Empower/Another curse

In Armour: Cyclone - Shield Charge - Faster Attacks - Life gained on Hit - Fortify

Blasphemy - Punishment - Assassin's Mark(if crits)/Despair(bleed)/Warlord's Mark(endurance charges)/Poacher's Mark(frenzy charges)

Enduring Cry - Intimidating Cry - Second Wind - Urgent Orders

War Banner - Enhance - Empower

Summon Stone Golem and depending on how much mana you have left Auras of your choosing
Taunt enemies, pop Enduring when on low hp and curse everything.

If you have any question feel free to pm me in game or dm me on discord:

Hey interesting build, do you mind posting a video of the build? Would like to see the build in action. How would you advise in this transition from a starter build?
Since cluster jewels are probably gonna be hard to come by in the beginning of the league you may want to juggle points around to get more reduced mana reservation. You could easily make them in harvest since spamming reforge with physical modifiers you always got exploit weakness.
just wanted to say never seen a physical curse bot on a champion thats for sure...
great imagination keep it up would love to see a video of this build..
