Ignite Immortal Penance Brand Elementalist Ascendancy, Bandits & Pantheon Powers

Ascendancy (Witch – Elementalist)

Liege of the Primordial

This is the first set of your Golem nodes. As you want to take both the Golem nodes and the Shaper of Flames before maps (or at early maps), you kind of want to take this one first as you’re not leveling as an Ignite build anyhow. Liege of the Primordial grants you 175% increased Damage and 175% increased Buff Effect from your Golems. Additionally it provides you with a way of keeping your Golems up as they’ll get re-summoned after dying. Lastly, this is one of your additional golem sources which allows you to eventually get to 7.

Elemancer

This notable makes your Golems immune to Elemental Damage which is important to keep them alive and grants you another additional maximum Golem. Additionally, this gives you 245% chance to Avoid Elemental Ailments effectively making you Ailment Immune and another 175% Buff Effect. These two sources of Buff Effect grant you about 17% DPS, 200 Life Regen and 10% Physical Damage Reduction. These two first Ascendancy nodes together are incredibly strong and potent if you invest into these Golems a bit.

Shaper of Flames

Shaper of Flames is the enabler of this build. It allows all our damage to Ignite which creates a multitude of benefactors as mentioned beforehand on the main page.

Shaper of Storms

Shaper of Storms is an enabler for a lot of builds as in it grants builds so much unconditional damage. However, Lightning Ignite builds excel at using this node as you are dealing mainly Lightning Damage to scale the 25% more ailment effect the node has as well as increasing the damage taken by your Ignite resulting in it being more than a 30% More Damage multiplier which is pretty insane!

Bandits

There really only is one option here. You want to kill all for Skill Points. Sure, getting some Resistances and Mana Regeneration from Alira isn’t terrible as a league starter but capping resistances really isn’t an issue on this build! Eramir just offers so much flexibility that it almost always is better than the others!

Pantheons

Major Gods

Soul of Lunaris is probably your best pick. It offers you that last % of potential Physical Damage mitigation which effectively makes you a lot more tanky versus Physical Damage when it matters.

Minor Gods

I would recommend Soul of Shakari here as Chaos damage over time can be fairly lethal. The other options don’t really offer us much.

Upgrading your Pantheons

Whilst upgrading your Pantheons never hurts you, it’s not that important for this character. If you have nothing else to do at some point, sure, why not, but it shouldn’t be something you focus on or spend a lot of time on.

Pantheon powers can be upgraded by using Divine Vessel Divine Vessel in the Map Device while you are activating the particular Map that contains the boss you need. Once you’ve killed the boss and captured his soul, you need to deliver the Divine Vessel Divine Vessel, which’ll be filled up in the map device, to Sin in Oriath.

    Hey!

    As per the ascendancy page of the guide, it’s Liege of the Primordial, then Elemancer, Shaper of Flames and finally Shaper of Storms. The image there is wrong for some reason, TbXie will fix it.

    As for the other questions, I don’t know, TbXie surely will answer you!

    Clusters are not necessary – Do not use EE with Arma Bran as you’ll gimp yourself and the ascendancies are indeed in the ascendancy page :)

    Doesn’t the fire damage from Wave of Conviction break Elemental Equilibrium?

    The gear pages covers this question explicitly :)

    If you are looking for the safest option, you’re definitely looking in to a Incandescent Heart, as it converts a part of incoming Elemental Damage to Chaos Damage (which means incoming damage gets mitigated twice).

    I don’t think thats how Incandescent Heart works. At 75% chaos resistance, it essentially does nothing for elemental damage mitigation. You actually taking more fire damage for using Incandescent Heart because your fire resist is at 76% which is higher than your chaos resist. The wiki page shows the calculations of the efficiency

    Yup! You’re right. I forgot they removed that OP mechanic a while back. It’s still a really really strong offensive item tho, but it indeed doesn’t double mitigate anymore. I also got baited by Path of Building’s EHP mechanics being super wrong.

    Any reason we can’t slap a curse on hit in with the wave of conviction and ele weakness?

    Edit: Yep late night me was dumb, no sockets for it.

    Probably a dumb question, but this is a tremendous upgrade due to the higher weapon damage right? Am I still running better with Armageddon instead of Penance or should I switch them now because it’s physical as chaos damage?

    What Golems do you use?

    If you check the gem link section you can find it on “2.3 Golems”

    Obliteration is nice for the Explode but thats it. Weapon damage does nothing for you sadly. Try it out though cause its fun on Arma Brand. Also, only swap to pencance after you have a lot of cast speed and a good mana flask to spam :)

    I may be mistaken, but it appears that you have linked the same end game PoB under the 1.1 Progression Advice section where there should be the leveling PoB instead. Can I suggest simply adding multiple trees (early/mid/end) into a single PoB? Thanks for your hard work. If you don’t have a progression leveling tree available could you advise on which notables I should prioritize first?

    The issue with jamming everything in Path of Building is that a very very large chunk of our readers don’t use path of building. Let me check the PoB though!

    I figured this out as well today while playing the build – That’s an oversight cause of Conversion on the Gloves.

    I need to think about the most optimal way around. A quick band-air solution would be to get an unset ring to socket Summon Chaos Golem in & then Use Added Fire there. I’ll think more about it tomorrow and edit accordingly though!

    Great catch tho :D
