Changes in Season 3.24 - Necropolis

  • Several Flasks have been changed, especially the Ruby, Sapphire and Topaz Flasks which reduced our damage taken from their respective elements. Instead, they are now rewarding Maximum Resistances which is still good for this build. According to our simulations, this will result in a 10% increased damage taken of these Elements, which should still not break this build, as long as our Resistances with these Flasks do not exceed 90%.

  • The Unique Flask Cinderswallow Urn can no longer gain ‘Reduced Mana Costs of Skills’. This does not change much for this build, because it was just an added bonus to the damage it provides to this build. Other stats like Crit Chance during Effect could be useful instead.

Leveling & Early Game

In order to be able to play this Build, you have to choose a Witch in the Character Creation.

Before you reach the Endgame, players have to finish all 10 Acts of the Campaign. Most of the times, you will not be able to use the same abilities in the early game as you do in the Endgame. Here is an overview how you can progress easily throughout the Campaign. In this List, you will find all Gems to use in the Early Game, and To-Do Lists for all Quests and Trials in Act 1 – 10.

For even further Leveling advice, check out our Leveling Guide here.

Talents - Ascendancy - Pantheon

Our Leveling Talent Tree focuses on utilizing the Gems being used early into the Campaign, often times changing as soon Players finish Act 10.

During the Campaign, Players can receive up to 20 Regret Points, which our Leveling Talent Tree will not exceed whenever changing to the Early Maps / Midgame Talent Tree.

After completing the Campaign, Players can start utilizing a more in-depth Talent Tree, focusing on their new Abilities and Gear that they want to obtain during this time.

Upon reaching higher Levels, we are using more Jewel Slots and even Cluster Jewels to increase our damage. This often requires to unallocate previously skilled Talents to gain the needed amount of Passive Skills.

Our Talent Tree will not exceed Level 95. This is to ensure that its a rather achievable goal after several days.

If players are reaching a higher Level then 95, more Jewel Sockets are a preferable way to use the remaining Passive Skills.

Jewels & Sockets

The list of Gems includes suggestions for various rare gems that can be put into socket slots, especially upon reaching the higher Endgame. Other Unique Jewels are a good choice aswell, but can become really expensive.

Rare Jewel

  • Damage over Time
  • Fire Damage over Time Multiplier
  • Maximum Life

 

Cluster Jewels

  • Large Cluster Jewel Elemental Damage – Prismatic Heart / Sadist / Widespread Destruction
  • Medium Cluster Jewel Burning Damage – Blowback / Flow of Life

 

Unique Jewels

  • Militant Faith Legion Jewel
    High Templar Avarius

Atlas Talent Tree

The Atlas Talent Tree can alter your game experience heavily. This Tree is designed to empower and direct certain League Mechanics towards your personal preference. Beware that the suggested Talent Tree works pretty well with the current Build, but this may differ for each individual player. Take this Suggestion with caution!

This Passive Tree focuses on Increased Chance to Drop Adjacent Maps, allowing players to progress into higher Tier Maps fast. This Tree does not include any other League Mechanics which should be chosen on players preference.

We also focus on dropping Maps 1 Tier Higher, aswell as additional Kirac Missions. 

We also included a node for the Syndicate Safehouse for Map completion to trigger more Catharina Encounters for the Veiled Orb.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use Eldritch Battery to make Energy Shield our Mana. To use high cost skills like Malevolence on Divine Blessing, we need some Energy Shield. Preferably on Shield and Belt Implicit.
Also make sure to keep Divine Blessing on Level 1.

This build requires a high dex/str stat of 155. Make sure to add it on Jewellery or Armor.

Even with an Enlighten Gem, you need a Helmet with Mana Reservation Efficiency. You need to use Essence of Loathing to craft your Helmet. Preferably, use a Base with fractured Spell Suppression if you have the Budget.
You can use a lower cost Aura like Skitterbots instead of a 50% mana aura until then.

When you switch to Detonate Dead you want to do the following:


1. Equip a Raise Spectre gem
2. Raise a Kitava’s Herald from Cathedral Rooftops(Both the act 5 and act 10 versions work)
3. Throw away the Raise Spectre gem


This permanently adds Kitava’s Herald(a high hp monster) to your Desecrate pool, it persists even if you logout.

Buy a clean Amulet with only +1 All Skill Gems on it, or try your best with Alteration Orbs
Craft “Can have up to 3 Crafted Modifier” and use a Bestiary Imprint to save the Item
Regal Orb
Craft “Cannot Roll Attack Modifiers” and “Prefixes cannot be changed”, and if needed a 3rd Suffix to fill them up
Go to your Harvest Crafting Bench and craft “Reforge Item, including Fire modifier”
You can now continue crafting it to your liking and budget by crafting Prefixes cannot be changed and Scouring Orb, or just craft “up to 3 crafted modifiers” again and fill up with some desired mods.
