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 gem, and the reworked 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:
- Octavian0’s league starter for Heist, the Archmage Cremation Build
- Brittleknee’s Summon Raging Spirits Necromancer Build
- Furty’s Raise Spectre Necromancer powerhouse
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!
