Path of Exile's 3.22 Trial of the Ancestors begins this Friday and to prepare we have several new League Starter guides to get you started! Along with the new guides, our existing build guides have been updated to the new patch as well as our currency farming guides. Let's dive into the updates below!
New League Starters
Picking a build can be one of the hardest parts of a new league in Path of Exile, it's often overwhelming, so our guides walk you through the leveling process and gearing using Milestones! For Trial of the Ancestors we've updated our existing League Starters and added several new options including some of the hot new meta starters!
The Boneshatter Juggernaut League Starter is an unstoppable force of skull crushing Rage combined with an immovable chunk of steel, tanking and obliterating everything in reach. This Boneshatter Juggernaut build is designed to start a fresh league with, meaning you can start from having no currency and clear all the content.
Ice Shot Deadeye
The Ice Shot Deadeye League Starter makes use of the recently added Vaal Ice Shot to add great single target, as well as additional arrows for great screen coverage of crispy freezes.
Impending Doom Pathfinder
The Impending Doom Pathfinder League Starter Curses enemies, Poisoning them and causing a chain reaction of Chaos proliferation to melt the entire screen in a very satisfying manner.
Lightning Arrow Deadeye
The Lightning Arrow Deadeye League Starter is a mapping beast capable of farming at high efficiency with a mid-range budget. If you want a fast build that fires countless projectiles which Chain through every enemy this is the build for you!
Hexblast Mines Saboteur
The Hexblast Mines Saboteur is a League start All-rounder that excels at having high damage across the board, at every level of gear. It maps well, while having more than enough damage to take down all end game bosses. If you want a build that fills the whole screen with purple explosions, look no further!
New Midgame & Endgame Builds
We expanded our pool of midgame & endgame guides over the last few weeks. Once you get through you League Starter check out some of the new options we have to progress further into the fray. We've also brought back some old favorites updating them for Trial of the Ancestors.
Cobra Lash Deadeye
Cobra Lash is an often misunderstood skill, and for good reason! The gem first rewards scaling critical strikes and Poison. Poison and critical strikes currently do not pair well, but there is much more to this skill. Cobra Lash has inbuilt Chaos conversion, and enemies naturally have less Chaos Resistance than Elemental Resistance.
Ignite Vortex Elementalist
The Ignite Vortex Elementalist is an ice skater, flying through the rink that is Delirium Orb mapping. This build clears maps with Vortex on Left Mouse Button, allowing you to focus completely on Shield Charge and looting quickly.
Righteous Fire Juggernaut
Righteous Fire Juggernaut is a Path of Exile classic. The build leverages Juggernaut's defenses for a comfy playstyle, throw a few Fire Traps and Pinnacle Bosses won't be an issue either. Mapping more your thing? Explosions are fun, between Legacy of Fury and Oriath's End the build has explosive clear speed!
Poison Spark Occultist
The Phantasmal Spark Occultist is an endgame all rounder capable of taking on the toughest content in the game. Thanks to Profane Bloom explosion chains it is able to provide satisfying clear unmatched by any other Ascendancy. Phantasmal Spark mechanically behaves exceptionally well in smaller arenas, as the projectiles bounce around, hitting a single target multiple times per cast.
Lightning Arrow Deadeye
The Lightning Arrow Deadeye is a great mid-budget ranged bow build that stacks Life Regeneration to achieve a high uptime on Berserk.
It is a mapping beast capable of farming at high efficiency with a mid-range budget. If you want a build that fires countless projectiles that chain through every enemy while moving at very high speeds this is the build for you!
Arc / Storm Brand Archmage Scion
The Arc / Storm Brand Archmage Scion is a well-rounded character that excels in defenses but is still able to do all content, including all Uber Pinnacle Bosses.
Poison Spark Pathfinder
Poison Phantasmal Spark Pathfinder is a well-rounded monster suitable for all content. The build focuses on quality of life, ensuring it feels good to play wherever possible. Luckily, Pathfinder excels at this, if you've ever played with a Mageblood, Pathfinder feels similar by enhancing Flask uptime and potency. Fill your screen with Sparks to clear enemies and take down Uber Bosses!
