ICE GOLEMS

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Necromancer based build focusing on the Skill Summon Ice Golem. This is a very powerful build able to clear all endgame content without much effort. Unfortunately it's not so cheap, needing some unique jewels to work.

Pros

  • Easy to play

  • Endgame destroyer

  • Good currency farmer

  • Safe build, stay behind and let your minions do their job

  • Great Clear Speed

Cons

  • Can't leech life or mana

  • Not so Cheap

  • Many Mandatory Uniques

  • Vulnerable to Chaos Damage

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- ​Skin of the Loyal is a cheap way to get a 6Link setup, but it needs to get the right colours. (4 Red + 1 Green + 1 Blue).
- You can also use a Belly of the Beast for more life and resistances.
  • MAIN HAND
- A Clayshaper is mandatory because it grants 1 additional golem.
  • OFF HAND
- A Victario's Charity is mandatory because it grants Frenzy and Power charges for you and your golems. (Use it only after taking Necromantic Aegis on your passive tree)
  • HELMET
- You'll need a helmet with "Socketed gems are supported by Concentrated Effect" and "Socketed Gems are supported by Minion Damage". Examples here.
- If you have more currency you can buy one with like the previous but also with +2 level of socketed minion gems. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare energy shield gloves with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare energy shield boots with movement speed, life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with Life, Strength and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare ring with life, dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Unset Ring with life, dexterity and some elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with Life, dexterity, strength and some resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​2 Divine Life Flasks are important for this build, because you cannot leech life. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- I like to use a Quicksilver Flask on this build, it helps the clear speed. Look for mods like ''increased movement speed during flask effect'' and ''increased duration''. Examples here.
- An Basalt Flask for physical damage reduction. Look for mods like ''increased duration'' and "Increased armour" Examples here.
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.

THIS BUILD'S FAQ
  • Is there a good place to buy unique items?
- Not only for unique items, poe.trade or pathofexile.com/trade are great websites for trading your items.
  • I'm lvl 40 and I'm dying a lot, what can I do?
- Please take a look at your Elemental Resistances, they are really important for your survivability. After lvl 40 try to keep at least 50% of each. The meximum is 75%, try to reach that when on end game.
  • I don't have as much HP and Energy Shield as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP and Energy Shield at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • I don't have enough Dexterity or Strength for all those gems, what can I do?
- Look for Dexterity and Strength on your rare items. You can also take the +30 nodes on the Skill Tree.
