By Delia Woolf2018-12-31


The Elementalist is an Ascendancy class for Witches in Path of Exile. Elementalists deal in all things elemental. They have access to conditional but powerful element damage bonuses, some granted periodically or with a skill requirement. They can also specialize in elemental ailments, elemental Herald skills, and elemental golems. Some passive skills can be mixed and matched to accommodate multiple damage types, even physical and chaos. Among so many PoE Builds, Elementalist is the easy, cheap and relaxing one with 10 (Max) Golem.
