Important PoB Notes

All my guides use Path of Building. We have a simple guide for you that shows how to import my build into Path of Building, you can find the guide here

End Game PoB & Passive Skill Tree

Seeing as this build can very well be played without the need of Doryani's Prototype Doryani's Prototype the guide itself will entirely be focused around that approach mostly because it is WAY more budget friendly but I will leave a medium & high budget PoB utilizing this . Do remember that if you decide to run the Prototype you’ll need to cap your Fire & Cold resistances and get as much negative lightning resistance as possible (capped at -200%) this can be achieved from a variety of items, for instance the Ventor's Gamble Ventor's Gamble . Since the removal of scourge, it has become harder to achieve a massive amount of negative lightning resistance, and we are instead forced to do this via uniques, thereby putting more pressure on defensive stats such as life and resistances to your other elements. You also need to make sure to stack your Physical mitigation up to make up for the lack of lightning resistance. This results in you only having issues with lightning DoT situations such as the Lightning Elder guardian or Baran influenced maps to mention a couple of the very rare lightning DoT’s that exist in the game.

Here you’ll find the low budget PoB for the build: https://pobb.in/mAYvUwuhSfdz

For the bigger versions you can check out the medium as well as the high budget variants within this PoB: https://pobb.in/ZWJ8mxEcPCCM, please do note that there’s a bit of information regarding the Medium Budget version in the “notes” section of this PoB.
Once the skill tree is finished, focus entirely on more jewel sockets or cluster jewels if you can afford it.

Masteries

A lot of the masteries available come down to a matter of personal preference but some are more or less mandatory.

Life Mastery: It’s important to pick up the “+50 to maximum life.” This mastery should be picked up as soon as possible, as it scales with any increases to life you pick up on the tree.
Minion Offence Mastery: “20% increased effect of Offerings” Since one of our defensive scaling layers is in the form of block via Bone Offering we’ll need this mastery to further scale that.
Minion Offence Mastery: “Minions penetrate 8% of cursed enemies’ elemental resistances” is a very solid choice for this build to further scale our Absolution sentinels damage.
Minion Offence Mastery: “Minions have 30% increased Area of Effect” Simple self-explanatory clear speed increase.
Minion Defensive Mastery: “Convocation has 40% increased Cooldown Recovery Rate” Helps speed up map-clearing.
Shield Mastery: “+1% Chance to Block Attack Damage per 5% Chance to Block on Equipped Shield” A must have to reach our block-caps!
Reservation Mastery: “Auras from your skills have 10% increased effect on you” This scales our defensive auras.

Amulet Anointment

In my opinion there’s really only one solid option to oil for this build, that is the Gravepact node, this requires the following oils: 1x Azure Oil Azure Oil & 2x Black Oil Black Oil
