  • Path of Exile: Types of Ancestral Warchief Build
    By Leo Jiang2017-10-11 00:00:00

    Path of Exile Players who have Ancestral Protector builds await for the Ascendancy Content eagerly. Aside from the PoE Items, Rewards and Endgame Labyrinth, it brings them a higher tier of skills which should raise damage output. One of them is the Ancestral Warchief.


    Players can be allowed to deal AoE damage and amplify the Melee Physical Damage by Ancestral Warchief. By adding 1% of Increased Totem Damage, Quality can further boost the skill’s potential (e.g. 20% Increased Totem Damage equals to 20% Quality). It also includes Increase Totem Damage at least 8% when this skill is active. The damage dealt is not clear by the AoE, but early details show that the percentage should begin at 110. Don’t forget this skill adds 50% Totem Placement Speed which is a very popular boost for all Totem dependent builds.

    This not only gives players an easier time for clearing mobs and dealing damage, players who are capable of laying multiple Totems will benefit from the Ancestral Warchief’s corresponding multipliers for the Totem Placement Speed. This gives players more options to deal more difficult parts of the game. Given this skill’s additional layer of option and strategy, solo quest missions will be easier too.


    If you are not sure which poe builds will gain the most out of this skill, please check the popular (and tested) builds below:


    Dual Spark Critical Totem Build - if you like Lightning and Critical damage, then this is the build for you. Unique PoE Currency is required for this build as well, although acquiring Call of the Brotherhood will raise the build’s effectiveness (15-25% Increased Lightning Damage, 30-40% increased Mana Regen), as well as Maligaro’s Virtousity for the Crit and Evasion boost. This build has been tested for several times against Atziri and is proven effective.

    Dual Flame Totem Build - cheap but effective build. Offensive affixes on equipment required for this build revolve on Fire mainly, Spell and Elemental Damage. Other supporting affixes are Increased Cast and Projectile Speed which can help raise the lethality of this build. The cornerstone skills are Flame Totem, Faster Casting, Fire Penetration (allowing user to tackle targets with Fire Resistance easily) and Elemental Focus for the Dual Flame Totem Build. Reflect Damage is also not an issue in this build which makes it ideal for both new and veteran players.


    Elemental Buzzsaw Build - The build shows high DPS and cheap requirements for Path of Exile items, such as exalted orb, but the build’s maximum potential has not been explored. There are several Hybrid Totem builds available for players to try and experiment. Some have tried Dual Flame with Crit and seemed good enough, however, it is better to try either Dual Flame Totem or Dual Spark Critical if this is your first Totem build. Path of Exile’s gameplay and system is free flowing and you may decide later if the build is not for you. If you want to know more poe news, please check MmoGah.
