PoE 3.6 Hierophant - Armageddon Brand and Cremation Build

Armageddon Brand: Mana Cost at gem level 1 is now 15 (was 14).
Now deals 29 to 43 Fire damage at gem level 1 (from 29 to 44) and 332 to 498 Fire damage at gem level 20 (from 393 to 590). Now has an added damage effectiveness of 75% (from 90%). Now activates every 0.8 seconds while Attached (from 0.75)

3.6 Changes:
Despite big nerfs, the Armageddon Brand still should be fine.
- Armageddon Brand received about 21-30% dmg nerf(depends on how much gear with flat dmg was used).
- Cremation about 21-30% dmg buff(depends on how much gear with flat dmg was used).
- some minor buffs on the tree.
- in total it is a boss dmg and possible clear speed nerf.
- due to dmg effective nerf by almost 17%, regular jewels with increased dmg and cast speed might be better, then abyss jewels with flat dmg now.
- updated tree for PoB https://pastebin.com/hTskjTwe

This is a short guide for my take on Armageddon Brand. The build is amazing. I could do almost all content(chayula is still alive, no stone yet) with ease. Very forgiving to mistakes. Can be easily customized for more Tankyness or crit. With crit, the variant can also use the store brand. Still could get much higher DPS.

This build will work with Armageddon Brand as the only damage skill. If you would like to drop cremation, replace Elemental Focus with Combustion. Or you can find another way to ignite and apply the Combustion debuff.

Pros & Cons:
+ tanky
+ mobile
+ good dps(single target and clear speed)
+ super fun to play
+ scales well with gear
+ there are absolutely no needed/enabling items
+ SSF friendly
+ HC viable
- ele reflect maps (can do it with balefire, if really needed. Done t14 like that, was very tedious, but doable)

Ascendancy:
Sign of Purpose -> Illuminated Devotion -> Arcane Blessing -> Divine Guidance

Pantheon:
- Major: Brine King
- Minor: Gruthkul (Shakari, if poison immunity needed)

Bandits: Kill All!

Gear:
This part is too important to put it together with the rest of possible variants/upgrades.
