Path of Exile 3.17: Archnemesis is essentially here, and as always, I like to go over a list of builds. A lot of creators made a bunch of really good PoE builds. People are super hyped about these, and I want to talk about the builds that I think are going to mostly define the league. ( Now the 3.18 league is coming soon, and you can view this post to get your 3.18 league starter builds.)
1. Explosive Arrow Ballista (a totem build)
Palsteron - Elementalist (SC)
Crouching Tuna - Heirophant (SC)
xai (zizaran video) - Champion / Heirophant (HC)
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when you are playing this build. You have to be careful that this build has a lot of tertiary stats. It needs to make sure that you don't do a lot of stuff because you can break the build very easily.
● Pitfalls - Ignite / Accuracy/ No Fire Dmg on Gear / Attack Speed / Make Sure no Pierce or Chain
This build is probably not friendly for new players because of the lots of stats. But if you're looking for a build that is absolutely excellent but might require a little bit more brain and a little bit more time thinking about all the different decisions and stuff that you have to make, explosive arrow ballista should be really solid.
2. Seismic Traps (one of the premier bossing builds)
xai / Lightee - Poison Variant (HC) - Better Midgame, Worse Late
3. Spectral Helix (Poison, Elemental, Impale)
Jungroan Poison (Assassin) / Elemental (Deadeye)
Alkaiser - Phys Impale 2H (Champion)
MattLighty -1h/shield Phys (Champion)
Tripolar - Poison (Pathfinder)
I think this is one of the better builds, but it, unfortunately, has a terrible playstyle for a lot of people.
4. Skeleton Mages (a premier minion build)
All these PoBs of the following recommended creators are almost the same:
Kay Gaming - Requires a Respec from another build
6. Poisonous Concoction
Occultist vs. Pathfinder
Occultist - better clear, doesn't scale well, better option to change into
Pathfinder - scales better, worse clear, worse options to change into
That's all of the league starters that I recommend to you guys, and I hope you have fun in the new league. Welcome to mmogah.com to view more builds, and you can buy safe PoE currency here to level your character fast.
