Ice Spear Freezing Pulse Hierophant Totem Ascendancy, Bandits & Pantheon Powers




The optimal way to play this build leaves very few choices when it comes to the Ascendancy nodes, which I will cover in this section of the guide.


The ascendancy nodes are listed in order of importance and are presented in the path you’ll need to travel to access them.

  1. Pursuit of Faith
  2. Ritual of Awakening
  3. Conviction of Power
  4. Divine Guidance

Pursuit of Faith

Pursuit of Faith provides an extra totem as well as totem duration and totem placement speed.

Ritual of Awakening

Ritual of Awakening makes us deal more damage per summoned totem and provide some nice Life regeneration per second for each totem summoned.

Conviction of Power

Conviction of Power permanently grants us 4 Endurance and Power charges.

Divine Guidance

Divine Guidance increases the efficiency of us taking damage from our mana pool before Life and also grants us more mana.


You will kill all of the bandits, as they provide no significant gains worthy of sacrificing the skill points.


While many builds offer the flexibility of personal preference, for this build to succeed the Pantheons should be only those presented in this guide. Most important is the upgraded Lunaris Major God to avoid chained projectiles so you can completely ignore that modifier on maps when you have an army of totems at your command.

You are also required to pick the Yugul Minor God pantheon in order to reduce curse effectiveness by 100%.
