POE 3.7 Guardian - Most Popular Build For Righteous Fire Guide

Image
This build achieves extreme amounts of Energy Shield, Armour, and Maximum Resistances, which allows you to land smooth and safe kills on endgame bosses. The build is also not recommended for beginner players since it requires some game knowledge and specific items and gem setups in order to work.


Righteous Fire has been a popular skill for a long time. The skill essentially degenerates player's life and energy shield pool in order to create a burning circle around the character. Righteous Fire has a decent clear speed along with the potential to kill all endgame bosses.

Pros & Cons:
+ Hardcore viable
+ Great for boss killing
+ One of the tankiest builds available
+ Decent clear speed
- Not recommended for new players
- Cannot be played since the beginning of the game; requires respecting

Ascendancy:

1. Radiant Faith
2. Time of Need
3. Bastion of Hope
4. Unwavering Faith

Bandits:
Kill all for the 2 Passive Points.

Pantheons:
Major God - Soul of Arakaali

POE 3.7 Assassin Ice Nova + Cyclone Most Popular Build

Image
This is a build guide for my Legion league Assassin character. It uses the main 6-link for a Cyclone setup that also includes an extra Ice Nova gem for a large damage boost. The aim of this guide is to offer a "build your own" approach to the typical Ice Nova CoC Assassin, achieving more tankiness and damage at a fraction of the cost. The rest of the build is largely at the discretion of the player: any chest is viable, dual wielding is possible with the setup, running extra auras or heralds is possible, and using an alternative gear set for speed mapping achievable as well.

Pros & Cons:
+ Costs around 50c to start
+ Nice single target dps and clearing
+ Legion encounters are very manageable and funny (thanks to Vaal Ice Nova)
± Some map combos are very annoying (but still runnable)
- Making the build tanky it's a little bit expensive
- DOTs are the biggest bane of the build

Ascendancy:
1. Unstable Infusion
2. Deadly Infusion
3. Opportunistic
4. Ambush and Assassinate

POE 3.7 Juggernaut - Popular Cyclone Build - Budget League

Image
The build uses Cyclone or blade flurry for both its clear and boss killing gem and it has worked very well for me ever since the changes to melee in 3.7. This will be my first successful build and I have played since Essence League so this is a huge milestone for me to be able to kill Uber Elder on my own without looking at any guides.


Pros & Cons:
+ Decent mapper, gems can be swapped to clear
+ Insane boss killer
+ The crit sound is satisfying to hear
+ Immune to temporal chains
+ Demonic Blade Flurry looks so good
- Can't do Phys reflect
- No sexy herald effects to look at
- Really needs dex and int on gear

Ascendancy:

1. Unflinching
2. Unbreakable
3. Unyielding
4. Unrelenting

Bandits:Help Alira.

Pantheons:

Minor God - Soul of Solaris

POE 3.7 Deadeye - Herald of Asenath, Physical Bow Summoner - League Starter Budget

Image
This Deadeye build balances both "bow" and "summoner" aspects by attacking with Tornado Shot, Clones [from Mirror Arrow], and Sentinels to deal pure physical damage. The majority of utility skills are triggered through Asenath's Chant, while clones are automatically summoned through Maloney's Mechanism.


The name Herald of Asenath is a blend of Herald of Purity and Asenath's Chant (one of the build's cornerstone items). According to lore, "Asenath" was a heroine and legendary archer who united the Maraketh tribes in rebellion against the Eternal Empire. Not only does this build on a unique item with her name, but also wields a bow and commands a contingent of followers - very akin to Asenath. As of now, the build can handle Uber Labs and T14 Maps. Things start getting a little dicey at T15.

Pros & Cons:
+ Easy to play! You only use two active skills, minions are auto-summoned, and all utility skills are triggered.
+ Unique! Seriously, ho…

POE 3.7 Slayer - Powerful Earthquake Slayer - Budget Beginner Friendly League Starter

Image
Earthquake is a good-looking, powerful and exciting Skill to play. This is a Build guide for a Resolute Technique 2Handed Axe Slayer. It deals high damage, which one-shots trash and even tougher enemies with ease. The aftershock will destroy everything in your path. This build is still great for Lab! I'm on the way of pushing the atlas now.


Pros & Cons:
+ Good-looking skill
+ Satisfying play style
+ Easy League starter
+ Cheap to start off
+ Fast Mapping
+ Can do most Map mods
+ Likes to kill hard Bosses
+ Fast leech and good Life pool
+ One-shots most stuff
- No leech Maps can kill you easily
- Can be quite Expensive at the Top end(like almost every Build)
- Leech lasts only 5secounds
- Lab is now much more challenging without a minute of the free leech.

Ascendancy:
- Headsman
- Endless Hunger
- Bane of Legends
- Brutal Fervour

Bandits:
Just kill all. Two points are worth more than any of the buffs they give you.

Pantheons:
Major God - Soul of Arakaali or Soul of Solaris

POE 3.7 Gladiator - Lacerate, Crazy Mechanics - Budget League Starter

Image
This build is quite noob friendly and This build is focusing mostly on stacking bleeds for bosses and also fast clearing maps. We take crimson dance for 8 bleed stacks to melt bosses and elites as quick as possible. This build is good at stacking 8 bleeds up on an elite and backing out from its attacks as it bleeds to death! Also, the bleed explosions from gladiator are SUPER satisfying!


Lacerate has been reworked in 3.7 to work with the new Blood and Storm (Stance) Skill. This build will primarily focus on the bleed stance. For mapping, we can easily change to sand stance, if needed. The reason why I decided to opt for blood stance is that I want to do a lot of bossing with this char, while also being able to normally map.

Pros & Cons:
+ Can do all content
+ Budget
+ Good survivability (Alot of Evasion/nice armor/a lot of damage reduction)
+ Solid clearspeed (Reave looks like top tier, Double Strike a bit slower)
+ Using crazy mechanics
+ Great Lab Farmer
+ Bleed its main dps sour…

POE 3.7 Slayer - Freeze Cyclone - Cheap, SSF Friendly Build

Image
This build guide was made in standard with GG gear at endgame, but you can definitely do league-based/cheaper iterations and still achieve great damage.


This is not a "Path of Building-Warrior" type build. I have been playing Cyclone for almost 5 years in this great game, and I can assure you this is the most satisfying, smoothest, tankiest 2H cyclone build I've ever played.


Pros & Cons:
+ works on a budget
+ tanky
+ boss killer
+ can do all map mods except "cannot leech" which is extremely rare
+ high sustain
+ SSF viable-ish
+ pretty sure it's HC viable
+ 1mil+ DPS
- maxing out somewhat expensive
- totem is a bit squishy
- sometimes spin for too long :D

Ascendancy:

- Headsman
- Endless Hunger
- Bane of Legends
- Brutal Fervour

Bandits: Kill All. 2 Passive Points.

POE 3.7.0 will be released soon, and the Path of Exile official website has released the first wave of POE 3.7 updates. Let's take a look at what is updated in POE 3.7.


The Legion Challenge League

- Challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start in a new economy. All of your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new leagues, complete challenges and demonstrate your mastery of Path of Exile!

- In the Legion Challenge League, you will encounter monoliths as you journey across Wraeclast. Touching one of these monoliths will reveal ancient armies frozen in the midst of battle.

- Shatter the magical bonds that keep these warriors locked in time, but do so quickly, because the monolith's revealing effects are brief. When the effect ends, the soldiers you released will continue their battle, and even turn their violent attention to you. Defeating these soldiers in combat will earn you great r…

POE 3.7 Melee Balance and Gameplay Systems Changes Guide

Image
POE 3.7 is still three days to be released, I believe that many players on the POE 3.7 Legion have a certain understanding, today, let's see together, 3.7.0 includes a huge number of changes to Melee balance, as well as other gameplay systems guide.


Melee Combat
The aim of many of the Melee combat changes is to further develop and reinvigorate many combat systems for the core Marauder and Duelist archetypes. The overall goal is to create a greater diversity of Melee skills and more exciting gameplay with them from the early game through to the late game.

Early-game Melee combat feel



A number of changes have been made to melee which changes the feel of early combat. Most melee skills now have more or less attack speed, shown on the gem as a percentage of base attack speed. This is to both better match their animations and creating a noticeable difference between fast aggressive attacks and slower, much deadlier slams.
Many low-level weapons have had their attack speeds increased to b…
