Manifest Armor Forge Guard Guide


A colossal humanoid construct made of fire and metal follows the orders of its master and maker, fearlessly charging into battle. Use the power of the forge to summon Manifest Armor, a powerful minion capable of destroying entire armies on its own.

This Forge Guard build uses Shield Throw against its own Manifest Armor to make it perform additional melee AoE attacks. Cast Sigils Of Hope and Javelin to gain powerful buffs and use Void Cleave to further enhance your construct's single target DPS.

This setup doesn't require any Unique to function and performs great even without good gear. However, Items like Apathy's Maw, Ribbons of Blood and Suloron's Step are amazing for scaling the build.

Overall the Manifest Armor Forge Guard is really strong build perfect for beginner, as its capable of defeating all the content in the game with zero gear. While it lacks AoE clear and its mapping it's pretty slow, its single target DPS is capable of obliterating any Boss in seconds. If you are looking for a minion build that specializes in Boss killing, this setup is perfect for you!
