Recommendation for the best build to platinum this game.

11 posts in this topic

Hi, I have sunk in almost 100 hours into this game and apparently I have reached a bottle neck in terms of DPS. My initial build was geared towards Earthshaterrer Marauder, but respec during the atlas map exploration into facebreaker ancestral warchief build since my ES build was very squishy, not doing enough damage, and the annoying rubber banding and insane frame drop caused me to die way too many times, unnecessarily.

 

The died less after i switched my build, but my dps had dropped significantly.

 

So now I am contemplating starting over since I think I sort of messed up respecing my character.

 

Is there any recommendation for what build should I go for so that I can have an easier time to platinum this game?

(** taking into account of all the rubber banding and insane drop in frame rate)

 

Appreciate much for any advice.

Check the PoE forums for top builds that are cheap/doesn't require too much investments.

 

I used toxic rain mines when I platted it. Pretty much carried me to end game except for a few instances where I had to be carried such as grand masters, Uber Atziri and Shaper. Not sure if they are good anymore, but lighting ball mines seems to still to be decent for the current league. Beware of mines, it is click/press heavily as you have to keep throwing mines and detonating them.

It really depends season to season. Go to poe.ninja and search for builds. There you can see the meta OP builds that most people are using. You can also see the top builds for each character. But since they're meta, items and gear used will be pricey. I platted this game a long time ago so I'm not sure if my build still works lol, but I heard they took away the requirement for Hall of Grandmasters - that was the brick wall of my plat and the expensive unique maps. Uber Atziri was a pain but managed to beat her on my last portal lol. I actually miss playing this game. I bought a Ps4 pro and an SSD drive just so I can play with no lag back then. Best of luck - this plat is ultra ultra rare.

I just went league collected a ton og materials chaos orbs (400) and exalted orbs (7) to trade for the endgame stuff, then used remainder of currency to purchase boosts on what i couldnt for the life of me complete. Only pointer i got, trade for runs.

Where did you hear that HoG is not required anymore? I might come back and plat the game if that's true, I was super anxious about this one.

Scroll down and someone said that they removed that requirement back in March 2021. Yea I had the most meta and OP cheesy build and finished that map with one portal left. Fck that place lol. But I heard its also RNG based on your build- you can have easy enemies instead of the broken builds.

You can always get someone to carry you through it if you couldn't handle it, but it'll cost you some currency. But yes, it is no longer needed for completion for the atlas.

I think it's safe to say that any current meta build will be good enough to achieve the plat in PoE. Since HoG isn't necessary anymore, you don't need anything specific. 

And if your build ends up being to weak for Shaper or anything else, you can get a carry anyways.
