Major God - Soul of Lunaris

Bandit: Help Alira for the 5 mana regen/s, 15 to all resists, and 20% crit multi

Passive Tree & PoB

Build & guide is set up as a low life ES based miner. For leaguestart or leveling, it is MUCH better to do a life version. Ignore ES nodes, pick up some extra life nodes and go for life rolls on gear.

Gear Setup

Helm

Hubris Circlet with ball lightning dmg enchant is the way to go. Craft yourself or buy one that has decent ES and the nearby enemies have -9% to lightning resistance fossil mod.

Weapon

Wand/Dagger with 100%+ crit chance for spells and +1 level of all spell gems along with a bit of spell damage is ideal. If you pour in exalts you can get some pretty crazy weapons with like +1 lightning gems AND +1 spell gems and some other stuff. Not needed at all, but the option is there.

Shield

ES base shield with 250-300 ES or more. +1 lightning spell skill gems is the super important mod, any block/res or anything else you get is a bonus.

Chest

Shav's Wrappings is the only way to go. We are a low life build after all.

Gloves

Fingerless silk gloves for the spell dmg implicit. Get a good amount of ES and some resistances.

Boot

Rare Sorcerer boots. I try to get 3 solid mods (2 suffix +1 prefix). So like High res + High Res + A solid ES roll. Then I multimod and add movespeed/cannot be chilled and cannot be frozen on them. I LOVE boots like these.

Belt

Crystal belt base with an ES roll + some res. Pretty cheap to buy or to craft.

Jewelry

Circle of Regret Topaz Ring. Go for herald of thunder buff effect and inc lightning dmg while affected by herald of thunder. These rolls can be divined to your pleasure. Going for any kind of attributes or str/dex implicits or w/e else you like could be great but can get very expensive. Then a rare moonstone ring with crusader influence on it. Gives a ES% along with a nice flat ES roll and some res. Finally for Amulet presence of chayula is the way to go because once again we are low life so it gives a ton of ES.

Annointment

Tranquility is by far the best to go here.

Enchants

Gloves - W/e you want.

Boots - Damage penetrates % ele resistances if you haven't killed recently (100% uptime because you are mines)

Helm - 40% Ball Lightning Damage

Jewels

Watcher's eye. Throwing in a level 1 clarity somewhere and getting the % max mana as extra es is wonderful but they are SUPER expensive since shaper/elder are much rarer now. Because of this i just went with crit multi/precision one which is still very good boost to dmg.

Transcendant Flesh is the next one. Gets socketed at the jewel socket over by the templar start. Does not show/work in POB atm (does work in the fork), but we get a good amount of crit multi and lose nothing.

Next is an Energy from within jewel which should be socketed over right at the shadow start (above and a little to the left) so all the life from Melding is turned into ES.

Only one rare jewel is really grabbed. %ES + any kind of crit multi, multi with spells, multi with lightning skills etc etc. Spell dmg/lightning dmg are okay too but not as good as crit multi.

Flask

Diamond flask with "Your Critical Strike Chance is Lucky"

Mana Flask with "Flask Effect is not removed at Full Mana"

Quicksilver Flask for Movement

Find Immunity to Freeze and Chill, Curses, Bleed Mod

If you have budget: Bottled Faith, Cinderswallow Urn with "#% increased Critical Strike Chance during Flask Effect"

 

Quick Leveling Guide

VERY IMPORTANT: Build & guide is set up as a low life ES based miner. For leaguestart or leveling, it is MUCH better to do a life version. Ignore ES nodes, pick up some extra life nodes and go for life rolls on gear.

Explosive Trap super early and then icicle mines for Act 1. (Or can do w/e you want honestly).

At level 12/merveil grab arc and link them with blastchain mine support, trap and mine damage, and swift assembly.

At level 28 grab ball lightning and make sure to replace or throw in a slower projectiles.
