I wonder if that bug is the reason why i can barely do the Contagion/ED combo anymore. Feels like only 1/10 ED's cast anymore.

Pretty much unplayable, Vaal EQ is even worse.

This new patch really fucked things up.

My game is broken, trying to load the mud flats and it just sits there with the rotating gears,then they stop after a while and nothing, music is still playing in the background so it hasn't locked up.

Tried all other servers, reset router, same result.

This is the second time I try ED. I still can't get a config I like to make it work real smooth. Hope it didn't get worse :/
It was a little painful until I got some more cast speed over the weekend. When it works like its supposed to, you basically cast contagion then ED nearly instantly after it and stuff will just die everywhere.

On low tier maps so far, I can clear entire legion encounters with a single combo.

Yeah definitely feels like a delay but I'm just in act 4. Just sometimes you get surrounded and it's sketchy even with bane.

This is the fastest I've ever unlocker Uber Lab. Level 85, all white maps done.

Two rooms in I get terrible latency spikes. Good. Perfect. The price I pay for no gold doors, huh?
The lag is really weird. One room is fine. The next chugs like crazy. Then two good room. And another chug fest. wtf

Lol sounds like I picked a good time to go on vacation. I was able to get 6 exalts, hopefully when I'm back after two weeks they will earn me a lot of chaos. Chaos was worth 88C when I left, hope they'll be up to 130-140 ish so I can start a new build with healthy currency after everyone has perfected their melee builds.

I'm very poor atm moment only one exa and 30 C, very bad items, very bad RNG. I haven't done chaos recipe at the beginning of the league because I did it last time and it was very tedious, I don't wanna flip currencies or buy and resell stuff for profit ... melee feels so good that I just wanna kill things.
I'm having fun, I'm trying things, I love Gladiator's speed and active play style, I will not back to caster anytime soon.
Currently in T9-10 maps, 2 yellow Elder 0 Watcher's eye
I'm having performance issues feels like I lost some FPS this league, maybe it's time to retire my 1050ti

Got my first exalted orb drop ever tonight, was from one of the currency chest in a legion event. Very coo stuff.

Map sustain is so much better than Synthesis.

My RNG has been poor in general, no exalts or anything but Ive still managed to make around 150c so far.

Comrades I need some help. What is the current syndicate farming strategy? Or what is the easiest way to get +2 levels to socketed support gems?

Hey guys wanted to share a build that I have been working on for my next in the league. It's a super tank Juggernaut build, one of the tankiest builds in the game using Tidebreaker/Marohi Erqi and Earthquake. The PoB I am linking is like a comprehensive guide on the build (check the NOTES SECTION!) and has everything you need with items, stats, gems and explanations.


STATS:

Life: 7,427 (207%) |
Reg: 1,828/s (24.6%) Net Regen: 1,772/s
Secondary: Armour: 43,880
Resistances: 77(+3) 76(+6) 76(+45)
Keystones: Resolute Technique
Offense
DPS: 519,[email protected] 1.55/s (Earthquake) + 206,634 @2.44/s (Ancestal Warchief)
Charges
Endurance: 9/9
Fortify, Vulnerability curse, Ancestral Warchief Buff, Pride, Aspect of the Crab, Stone Golem
Stun, Freeze, Bleed Immune

PROS

*One of the tankiest characters in the game. 8-10 Endurance charges, tons of Physical damage reduction, elemental/generic damage reduction, even chaos resistance.
*High armour synergizes with Molten Shell which you can activate frequently.
*Huge AOE on Earthquake with Pulverize great for Legion killing for a melee character.
*Bleed immune all the time, opens up flask slot.
*Stun and chill/slow immune thanks to Kaom's Roots. Also cannot be frozen.
*High HP, high HP regeneration with some leech for excellent sustain.
*Easy sustain because of %physical attack damage leeched as life/mana is readily available on gear and jewels and saves travel points on skill tree.
*EQ + Ancestral Warchief for solid single target damage and safe playstyle (hit, then move).
*Can be started on a budget and scaled into late game with good items/crafts.
*Insane stunning ability, can even stun bosses on Ruthless procs. Adds an additional layer of safety to the build and allows for safe DPS against bosses.
*No gem or equipment requires any high degree of Intelligence or Dexterity making it easy to level up and path, mostly contained in the Marauder side of the tree.
*Easy, fun and relaxing to play.
*Blood Magic option viable, adds around 500 more HP.
*Resolute Technique and pure physical damage so easy to gear on the rares (no need for Accuracy, Crit strike/multiplier, flat elemental damage,
weapon elemental damage with attacks etc)
*Works with Ground Slam, Sunder and Sweep just as well with almost no changes needed.

CONS

*Craicean Carapace can be an expensive unique but cheaper alternatives exist ie. Rare chest, Belly of the Beast, Brass Dome.
*Not the highest single target damage around. 500K DPS on Shaper with another 200K DPS from Ancestral Warchief.
*Slow movement speed, reliant on Leap Slam to move around (which itself isn't that fast on the build but during mapping with Blood Rage you can build up Frenzy charges and Onslaught from Flask is decent enough)
*Cannot complete against "meta" clear speed builds because the emphasis is on stunning, defense and AOE over movement.
*Cannot do physical reflect maps.
*Aftershock delay is annoying but made better by new support gem Shockwave.

You can't get watcher's eye on yellow, it's red and above only
@above didn't check the build but aren't kaom roots redundant with jugg asc

Yeah I ususally skip unyielding on jugg because the bonuses aren't that great all things considered, it gives you about 10% AoE and some medium damage in your case

Stun is fantastic for defense, just comes at the expense of clear speed. I swapped back from bleed to stun for that reason, bleed I could clear maps 1/3 to 2/3 faster but I was dying a lot. Stun lets you get away with a lot worse defense wise.

Might stick stun out and see if I can't stun shaper and the like, will see how heavily I get slammed by betrayal in red maps though lol.

Died in the first lab last night while being lazy in the traps. The shame!

So buggy on XB1, can barely go 10mins without crashing to home screen
Mine's not quite that bad on PS4, but I had three CTD last night in a few hours. Fortunately the game is pretty robust and I only usually lose a very small amount of travel time (aside from the time it takes me to restart the game).

Lots of people complaining about it on both platforms, also seems to point to the problem getting worse the more it happens to the point where you can no longer even select your character without it crashing.

Hope POB add impale stuff soon, hard to optimize cyclone DPS, atm hesitating between war and dread banner.

I need all the damage I can get for this build from the Ascendancy because that's the main thing its lacking and with Pulverize I get around 6 more AOE radius (which is a big difference for a 360 degree skill and higher than the bonus that Slayer provides which is only conditional). Also the 90% increased stun duration is pretty juicy for a build that is stunning most of the time. With it I can get close to 3 second base stun on enemies.

The Land
I like Legion a lot more than Synthesis.

Leveling has been a refreshing experience- I've gotten a handful of uniques already just from Legion monoliths and I only played a few hours last night up to Act 2. I never got much of anything from memory nodes in Synthesis. Making items from 3 synth items was pretty trash for me.

The new melee mechanics are awesome. What's interesting is that the bosses play entirely different now that you can anticipate and move out of the way, but they were still more dangerous than they were before.

NP, the node is still decent, I'm just too in love with unstoppable hah

Legion has been good but it's been a pain in the ass in some layouts and getting stuck in a wall because of a desync also sours the experience. I think frozen mobs should have much less life, the DPS check should come after unfreezing them, this sucks for builds that aren't cyclone or aren't super high DPS.

Yeah I think Legion could use with some minor adjustments.

My personal hang up is that they are so spread out. The best rewards are on opposite ends of the Legion spawns, from one corner to the other. So you go to one corner, pop a bunch then have to travel all the way across again. By the time you reach, the timer is usually over and my damage/speed is pretty good (have cleared 150+ Legion already).



If the legion spawn was tighter then I think a lot of people would be happier and builds would be close to each other in addition to map layouts being less punishing.

Just unlocked cyclone late last night... mana at the moment is a struggle. I'm going to have to ditch an aura for boss battles in the short term - I'm looking out for a ring that has - mana cost to skills, can I just buy those somewhere? Haven't see any drop yet.

poeaffix suggests they're signature mods, can I just buy those?

They're betrayal veiled mods and incursion exclusive drops. Both can drop from certain legion rewards. I was lucky and got a pretty good ring with -6 mana early on, bringing my cyclone down to 1 mana. You should be able to sustain with mana leech on the tree, keep a mana flask in case

I think I have a decent idea for legion. Make the timer much bigger, but you lose time when you shatter a reward or a rare mob or general. So you can take your time and pick what you like, but if you shatter everything you get 10s total (current timer I think ?). You could start at 1:10 and lose 3 seconds per reward/rare/general (if we assume there are 20 of them total per encounter)
Doesn't penalize fast clear, helps people who want to pick good rewards rather than just clear everything. Less RNG frustrating too.

Make sure to check the NOTES section and also follow the leveling trees (click MANAGE TREES to see the tree at different level intervals).

Also note that Damage on Full Life should be replaced with SHOCKWAVE support. I wrote it in the notes somewhere but didn't emphasize it enough. I only have Damage on Full Life for rough damage numbers but Shockwave should provide more damage overall and better feel.

I'm still trying to think of a 2nd melee/physical char to make since I'm not in love with tec slam but man, everythingwascyclone.jpg. I'd really like to do something different that is also strong. I'm still not sure what the most effective options when it comes to builds making the most out of impale.

I wish Legion showed a general radius or indicator or where the mobs are. It's annoying going one way finding out you fucked up and there is barely any enemies that direction.

Thanks for this. I've been mostly ignoring legion for now (now that I have cyclone I'll start doing it) and obviously no access to veiled stuff yet (act 9 I think that starts showing up?). Fingers crossed! I've been going left on the tree for my early levelling but I can start heading right now and pick up the leech (and some dex, which will help) and in the meantime I'm fine running with a flask too.
