PoeCurrencyBuy Date: Aug/29/19 08:58:13 Views: 290

This Build works around the Berserker Ascendancy "Rite of Ruin" and "Blitz". The Ascendancy "Rite of Ruin" triple the effect of Rage, and Blitz give you almost all time 40% more Attack speed. Together with the Berserk Buff.

Skill Tree


We take the Berserker Class for MAX ATTACK SPEED

First we go to War Bringer to get instant Heal.
Next we go Grave the Slaughter for enable Rage.
Next we go Flawless Savagery to increase crit Chance and Damage.

We DONT take Pain reaver. We get enough Life leech from Martial Experience and we get Mana leech from Jewels or Gear. Look for "X% of physical damage leeched as mana" on Jewels/Rings or Gloves.

For Red Elder or Uber Elder, we take War Bringer instead of Blitz, that will help a lot! with Survivabilty even any Flask up.


Bandit: Kill All

Passive Tree & PoB

PoE 3.8 Ancestral Warchief Berserker Passive Skill Tree


We take Martial Experience for Life Leech and Recovery Rate. Next take Razors Edge, Devotion and Barbarism for Life and DPS.

And then we head on towards the Duelist Area:

We spec to the Battle Cry Keystone. Battle Cry removes the Cast Time on Enduring Cry. That will make you able to use Enduring Cry while Flicker Strikying, and get Endurance Charges while Attacking.

In the Bottom right corner, we have a Glorious Vanity Timeless Jewel. The Number on the Jewel is not important, but it must be one of the Name of Doryani. It enables the "Corrupted Souls Keystone. This gives us 1k+ ES, and together with the Soul Tether (4c) we also get ES Leech and Slayer Leech!

We take some Life and crit nodes around the Duelist Area.

We skip the Sword nodes Executioner and Wrecking Ball. 

(We get enough Attack Speed from Rage and Blitz, and get more damage with Crit Multi).

Finally boost our damage with Disemboweling (in the Left Bottom Corner Berserker section)

Gear & Gems Setup


Starforge is an expensive Option, which increased DPS by applying Schock. The Doomsower is our Budget Option. It gives up to 500pdps, and cost only 1c.

Doomsower / Starforge Gem Setup:

Vaal Double StrikeRage Supprt, MultistrikeMelee Physical Damage Support, Ruthless, Fortify 

We use double strike on Bosses and single Target. It give us Fortify, apply bleed, which boost the DPS for Ancestral Warchief Totems.


We use Terminus Est which give us Frenzy Charges on Hit. It has other good stats as well, like Attack Speed, increased Phys, and movement speed is also nice to have.

Gem Links for Terminus Est:

Fortify, Flicker Strike, Multistrike, Melee Splash, increased critical Strikes, Anestral Call 

If you prefer Cyclone:

Fortify, Cyclone, Pulverise, Rage, increased area of effect, Maim

If you need more damage, you can swap out increased area of effect with infused channeling.

Fortify, Cyclone, Pulverise, Rage, infused channeling, Maim

You can also use Bladestorm:

Bladestorm, Fortify, Impale, Rage, increased critical damage, Maim

Bladestorm can be especially Handy if you can't get close to the Enemy to leech Life. It will create a Storm, which constantly damages the Enemy, and give you Life/Mana Leech and stach up Rage+Blitz. 

Body Armour

If you cannot afford a Craiceann's Carpace, a Bramblejack will do!

Upgrade it via the Prophecy to the Wall of Brambles, which give us up to 2500 Armor. I used it before I could 6L my Craiceanns. A 6L Bramblejack is 20c on POE.Trade

Body Gem Setup:

Ancestral Warchief, Melee Physical Damage, Mutiple Totems Support, Bloodlust, RuthlessConcentrated Effect 

Bloodlust give 50%+ more phys damage but our Totems dont apply bleeding. We use double Strike to apply bleeding. 

BIS Body Armour and Cheap (20c on market). It gives up to 2.5k Armor, Good Life, Nice Fire/Cold Res, Bleed Immunity. And it gives us Aspect of the Crab, which give us additional 30% physical damage reduction and safe us from getting one shot.


Gem Setup: Cast When Damage Taken (lv 20), Ice Golem, Immortal Call, Vaal Molten Shell

Abyssus, for DPS (In my Opinion, BIS)

Another Option: Devoto's Devotion for 20% increased Movement Speed and more Defense. If you need the Tankyness.

We use High LVL CWDT linked with Immortal Call and Ice Golem and Vaal Molten Shell. Keep your Vaal Molten Shell under 21 to enable auto cast Molten Shell with CWDT.

We cast Vaal Molten Shell for Tankyness.


The Oskarm Gloves give Assassins Mark on Hit. Better would be a rare Shaper Ring with Assassins Mark on Hit and you can use rare Gloves

Gem Setup: Leap Slam, Enduring Cry, Vaal Haste, Blood Magic

Rare Gloves, with Life, Res, missing Stats. BIS: Rare Elder Gloves with "Supported by Level x Faster Attacks" for more mobility, Attack Speed, Add x to x Physical Damage, Crit Multi.


Get Rare Boots with Armour or ES based Boots with Life, res, Movement Speed

Gem Setup: Berserk, Precision (lv 1), Pride, Enlighten


Soul Tether give us Slayer Life Leech. This enable us to leech ES instead of Life when at full Life. We use a Timeless Jewel Together with the "Corrupted Soul" Keystone in the bottom right corner of the Skilltree to Boost our ES


Use the Timeless Jewel, important is the one with the Doryani Roll. It enables the "Corrupted Souls" Keystone and is socketed in the bottom right corner Jewel Socket.


In my Endgame Setup I use Solstice Vigils to increase the Berserk Buff. It also helps Sustaining Rage and Blitz during Mapping.

stat you need find: #%Phys Damage, #%Crit Multi, #%Melee Attack Range, #%Melee Damage, #%missing Stats, #%Life


Try using Diamond Ring with Life, Res, ES, Crit Multi, Add x to x Phys to attacks, missing Stats




For DPS:

  • 40% increased Ancestral Warchief Totem Damage
  • Ancestral Warchief Totem grants 30% increased Melee Damage while Active
  • 40% increased Flicker Strike Damage
  • 9% increased Flicker Strike Damage per Frenzy Charge

For more Mobility:

  • 30% increased Flicker Strike Cooldown Recovery Speed

For more Survivablity and Damage (I didnt get this Enchant yet, but I think this will be the most fun):

  • #% increased Double Strike Attack Speed


  • 10% chance to Freeze, Shock and Ignite if you haven't Crit Recently 
  • 8% chance to Dodge Spell Damage if you've taken Spell Damage Recently
  • 10% Chance to Dodge if you've taken a Critical Strike Recently
  • 10% increased Movement Speed if you haven't been Hit Recently


  • Commandment of Reflection for defense
  • Commandment of Fury for DPS
