Heist League Starter Builds and Information


Published on

With only a few hours until the start of the Heist 3.12 league (on PC – sorry PS4 and Xbox users!), we want to present you our selection of ideal league starter builds. Before you get started, be sure to check out our Heist guide, and open up your Quick Reference Leveling Guide (now with many colors!), or Brittleknee’s Comprehensive Leveling Guide if you prefer a more descriptive take!

New Skills, Cyclone & Champions

To start off, you’ve got the Shattering (or Splitting) Steel Impale Champion that LunaWolve will be league starting with on-stream. This build makes use of the new Splitting Steel Splitting Steel gem, and the reworked Shattering Steel Shattering Steel, and promises to be fresh if nothing else!

If instead you want a bit more of a consecrated Champion build that’s tried and tested, you could always go for the Impale Cyclone Champion by the same author.

Lastly, we’ve got the all-famous and ever-reliable Cyclone Slayer Build by Furty.


If you want to play a miner, we’ve got two great league starters to cover you:

Necromancers / Summoners

Even though Necromancers seem to get nerfed every league for a while now, they somehow still remain some of the best league starters and overall builds to play if you want to clear all content. We’ve got 3 to recommend to you today:

Durable, Hardcore-friendly

If you’re looking to play something more durable and defense-oriented (or maybe you’re just playing Hardcore and that’s what you’re all about), we’ve got two builds to recommend:

Good luck, happy hunting, and join us on Discord if you have any questions!

    This might be the wrong section. But do you know how to run a heist with your party?

    This is the right section but I think Luna’s a bit too busy playing/updating his build guides to be able to update this guide now. Sorry about that, we’ll get to it as soon as possible.

    Edit: Oops, I thought you asked in the Heist guide. So, it is technically the wrong section, but my answer still applies sadly.
