POE 3.7 The most unpopular Elementalist Storm Brand Build

Image
Although Elementalist is not popular build in POE 3.7 League, I personally still like this profession. Storm Brand Elementalist offers excellent clear speed and capable boss damage. Gameplay is smooth thanks to the instant cast nature of the brand recall, as well as the instant damage from Storm Brand.


Pros & Cons:
+ Very good damage with the right gear
+ Able to do ALL map mods
+ High damage from the start
+ Safe playstyle
+ Very low mainteance, pets almost never die
+ Easy to change to an ice golem build.
+ Multiple layers of defense
- Min-maxing is expensive
- The trade-off for highest DPS variation is much less energy shield
- Hit hard by ES nerf
- Difficult to cap resists without expensive rares

Ascendancy:
1. Pendulum of Destruction
2. Paragon of Calamity
3. Shaper of Desolation
4. Mastermind of Discord

Bandits: Killing all the bandits for that sweet +2 skill points.

Latest and Popular POE 3.7 Ascendant Build for Cyclone Guide

Image
This build is POE 3.7 Ascendant popular build for cyclone, and I think it's very great. Cyclone has received several buffs in Patch 3.7 Legion and is set to be a very strong skill for both clear and bosses. With the Gladiator changes and reworks, this Ascendancy has become a fantastic all-rounder that blends offense and defense seamlessly, with organic Frenzy and Endurance Charge generation. 



Pros & Cons:
+ Great League Starter
+ Good end-game 
+ Great defenses
+ Multiple configurations 
+ Very fast
- Cyclone is a polarizing “love it or hate it” skill
- Requires careful play on difficult bosses to dodge mechanics
- Cyclone is not really viable until the end-game — leveling must be done using a skill such as Sunder Sunder

Ascendancy:

1. Duelist Ascendancy
2. Ranger Ascendancy
3. Path of the Ranger

Bandits:
Help Alira for Mana-Regeneration / All Resistances / Crit Multi

POE 3.7 Most Popular Hierophant Freezing Pulse Totems Build

Image
This is my Freezing Pulse Totem Guide for the Hierophant. Two changes in 3.7 made me explore Freezing Pulse again for Spell Totem: the fix for Freezing Pulse getting blocked by doorways and other simple environmental objects, and the addition of the "Sanctum of Thought" passive skill tree notable which allows for us to easily get 100% reduced effect of Curses on ourselves. So the two big annoyances I previously had with this build are now eliminated, and it has become an extremely powerful and safe build with very few downsides. This build clears extremely well, has more than capable single target damage, completely ignores Curses and is very safe while doing all of it due to the consistent Chill and Freeze effects. 



Pros & Cons:
+ Easy to cap resists
+ Cheap and Safe
+ Can go Magic Find
+ Do it all. 
+ Mind over Matter. 
+ Transitions nicely from leveling to mapping without any problems and big investments
- Totems are not for everyone.
- Have not personally tested Hardcore. 
- N…

POE 3.7 Most Popular Tornado Shot Deadeye Build

Image
This build is Deadeye most popular Tornado Shot build. It's extremely fast, with Mirage Archer clearing everything for you; extremely powerful, with all the Bosses down even when optimized for maximum Movement Speed; and budget-friendly, as you can easily farm high Tier Maps with just 5-linked Tempest Bow. This  Deadeye build balances both "bow" and "summoner" aspects by attacking with Tornado Shot, Clones and Sentinels to deal pure physical damage. The majority of utility skills are triggered through Asenath's Chant, while clones are automatically summoned through Maloney's Mechanism.



With major changes to Passive Skill Tree introduced in Patch 3.7, making an Elemental Bow build is much easier. Both Master Fletcher and King of the Hill now apply their bonuses to ALL types of Bows instead of just Physical ones. 

Pros & Cons:
+ insane clear speed
+ high single-target DPS
+ can do all content
+ can reach over 200% increased Movement Speed
- can't do Elem…

POE 3.7 Chieftain - Most Popular Cyclone Build - Friendly Budget League

Image
This seems like a fun build to play. This is a Chieftain Cyclone CWC Blade Vortex(BV) build. The concept is to get BV stacks started by using cyclone while still moving. It also uses Vaal RF for boss fights. You can use regular righteous fire as needed and just use a life flask with "of dousing: to end the effect so you don't kill yourself with fire. This build focuses on the easily accessible life nodes and uses a staff. This build is mostly writing it to get feedback on how the build should grow, or make it better. I think it's pretty solid as is, at 1.3M DPS 6k Life (Could be more) and 90% Physical reduction.



Pros & Cons:
+ High damage resist
+ Good league starter
+ Cheap to start off with
- A slower moving build
- Need elder items for decent life leech 
- Not as high of area of effect as pure cyclone build, but can easily adjust this build for more area of effect 

Ascendancy:
1. Ngamahu
2. Hinekora 
3. Tasalio
4. Ramako

Bandits:Kill all.

POE 3.7 Pathfinder - Toxic Rain - Friendly Budget League Starter

Image
Toxic rain didn't change in 3.7, but the tree got much more damage, at least 20% more damage total! Toxic rain is stronger than before, and this build is here to show you how. This build is just a mixing up of all the best things PF and TR have to offer. You can realistically expect a nice leveler for a low budget and an Uber Elder Killer with less than 10-12 exalts mid-league.



Why not use Herald of Agony?
HoA is increasingly better the more mana reservation it has. But even with a 6L, it cannot compare in terms of a number of hits to the 4 totems for withering touch. Also, the spore duration allows an area to keep doing damage even if the enemy moves because you create a floor mantle of spores around enemies. Also, while with HoA you have an autonomous source of damage besides your character, with the 4 totems you have 2 autonomous sources, which can be useful for things like Breach, and for keeping a constant flow of damage while you move around.

What about Caustic Arrow?

POE 3.7 Trickster Most Popular - Essence Drain+Ban - Best Clear Speed Budget

Image
This build is ED+Bane Build on 3.7 Legion Content since this is currently the second most popular skill for the league. As everyone figured would be the case, this skill combo absolutely wrecks the league mechanic. It's not quite as strong in the multiple army emblem encounters as it is in the map monoliths, but combined with being a strong/cheap league starter, it's a great all-around choice.



Pros & Cons:
+ High Damage Output
+ Fast Playstyle
+ The best clear speed for Legion league
+ Can start with a very low budget 
+ Can do any map with any mods
- Positioning is key and can be annoying at times
- Gem Slot Starved
- Can be expensive

1. Patient Reaper
2. Ghost Dance

Image

POE 3.7 Slayer - Crit Cleave, Perfect All Rounder League Start Budget

Image
This build is based around the Melee AOE skill Cleave and is played using the Slayer ascendancy for Duelist. While Slayer is strong this build has quite a few growing pains while going through Act 10 and Early Maps. If you are experiencing you can probably pull this off SSF however in my experience I found the Uniques I bought (very common ones) were a savior in transitioning to maps.



Using Winter Spirit we convert 40% of our Physical Damage to Cold Damage so that we can shatter and freeze enemies easier. Alongside Herald of Ice, this will give us huge clear speed which is the premise of the build. On the tree we stack fat attack speed, fat dual wields mods and fat critical strike chance, giving us the ideal Cleave machine. Not only that but we go with ridiculous AoE cause why not. I chose Slayer as thanks to 3.7 almost every one of his Ascendancy points is insane, and we have easy access to quality of life things such as big crit chance, life leech and up to 50% Increased Area of Effe…

POE 3.7 Champion - Cyclone, High/Hit Frequency DPS Budget - Friendly League Starter

Image
In POE 3.7 Legion, Cyclone became the single-best skill in Path of Exile. It deals insane damage nearly with every character class and setup, has wide area coverage and amazing clearing speed. 



This build is Champion revolves around Impale mechanics, which even further increases your damage, and with very high Hit frequency that Cyclone offers, you stack Impale within seconds. This build is one of the best Boss-slayers we have ever played, with all of them melting in seconds including Shaper and his Guardians. 

Pros & Cons:
+ Everything melts in seconds
+ Extremely mobile build which uses Whirling Blades with greatly increased speed
+ High DPS
+ One of the most satisfying Melee builds out there
+ Great for a League Starter
- Can't do Physical Reflect Maps
- Can't do No Leech Maps unless you find a different reliable way to regenerate Mana

Ascendancy:
- Master of Metal
- Unstoppable Hero
- Conqueror
- Worthy Foe

POE 3.7 Berserker - Reave Claw - Fast, Amazing, Friendly League Starter Budget

Image
Do you want to zoom through maps and clear at a safe distance while still taking advantage of all the melee buffs? Do you wish to become a Greek God and take on hordes of Legion mobs? Then this build is for you!



This build is also awesome for the Legion mechanics, as Berserker speed combined with Reave's huge area of effect will help us unlock as many statues as possible and, with all of our defenses, it is safe and easy to cull the hordes.



Pros & Cons:
+ Most of our endgame gear is cheap (both endgame claws cost 2c)
+ Massive Reave aoe, attack speed, and movement speed means clear will be amazing
+ Great dps with budget gear, bosses will no longer feel like shit with reave
+ with the aoe, instant leech, damage reduction from auras, and high evade chance, build should handle massive legion mobs with ease
- cannot do physical reflect maps
- Zerker does not have built in defenses through ascendancy, though we do a lot to solve this (blind, enfeeble/stone/reduced damage from blinded enem…

Image
If you are looking for a build with insanely high exp/h gain. This build allows you to level as itself without any external abilities required. If the build you seek can start with a very low budget with possible upgrades with more currency.

Pros & Cons:
+ Fast, versatile and fun build

+ Boss killer
+ All content viable
+ High Evasion thx to the new blind mechanism

POE 3.7 Slayer - Powerful Earthquake and Attack Block - Beginner Friendly

Image
In this build, I want to share with you Guys the most enjoyable and satisfying Build I've ever played in my PoE career. This is a Build guide for a Resolute Technique 2Handed Axe Slayer.

Earthquake is a good-looking, powerful and exciting Skill to play. It deals high damage, which one-shots trash and even tougher enemies with ease. The aftershock will destroy everything in your path. Long Story short: Slayer synergizes just too good with Earthquake and is in terms of offense and defense the most balanced choice of all the classes. 
It's the best choice for this Build.



Pros & Cons:
+ Good-looking skill
+ Satisfying play style
+ Easy League starter
+ Cheap to start off
+ Fast Mapping
+ Can do most Map mods
+ Likes to kill hard Bosses
+ Fast leech and good Life pool
+ One-shots most stuff
- No leech Maps can kill you easily
- Can be quite Expensive at the Top end
- Leech lasts only 5secounds
- Lab is now much more challenging without a minute of the free leech.

Ascendancy:
- Headsman
- Endless …
