[3.11] ShakCentral's Vortex For Dummies

How do you guys squeeze in so much auras/curses?
I'm currently running temp chains+frostbite and discipline in a heretic's veil paired up with a 3 enlighten, malevolence with a 20/20 blood magic in boots, and clarity off-socketed (on level 6 to keep a sufficient mana base).

If I were to scrap heretic's veil for a -res helm - even with an awakened blasphemy, I'd be at around 70 mana even with scrapping clarity fully.

And I really don't want to use prism guardian, since I find the recover %ES on block way too good for this build to scrap my current shield.

%ES recovered on block, btw, I'm very surprised noone mentioned so far as it is pretty much a key component for this build imo.

Maybe Shak or someone could take a look at my profile (it's open) and check out my take on the build (the gear which I'm pretty proud of, and crafted most of those goodies myself, except for the wand that's a placeholder)and if there's any suggestions on how to keep my current curse/aura setup while switching to a juicy -res hubris circlet.

You need to use Prism Guardian or you need to respec your tree for some Reduced Mana Reserved nodes (below Zealot's Oath).

I threw a few alts on the wand and then got the t1 added lightning on the regal. How good is this wand and is it worth multi-modding? Or should I try to get a better wand? For context, I recently decided to roll this build and have around a 40 ex budget for the whole build. If I were to multi-mod this, what should the other mod be, besides the "trigger a socketed skill" mod?

Added damage to spells and "gain cold damage as extra chaos damage" only works on the hit but not on the DoT, so it is pretty useless for this build.

What you want besides +1 to cold spell gems is Spell damage, Cold Damage, Cold Damage over Time multiplier, Damage over Time.


Ah I see, that makes sense. Thanks for the help!

Yeah not gonna use that shield, it's just too bad :/ I'd lose much more replacing my current shield in favor of prism guardian than I'd gain from switching heretic's veil for a circlet.

Got some reduced reserved already, and would have to give too much good stuff up for so little going over to those nodes.

I guess the only solution is getting an unset ring for clarity, dropping tempest shield and pairing discipline up with a second enlighten 3 in the boots.

Nothing will kill you anyway, so no need for %ES on block shield. Was thinking about it too in the beginning, but then went for Prism (easier to find +2 aura / +2 aoe gems corruption) because the best defence is offence.
I would personally think about rare shield if I would get my hands on something that has %ES on block, mana reservation, 350ES+.

Yeah I agree, I was against the shield initially but it just makes everything work smoothly. ES shield only worth if its some godly one imo.


@Shak where you at dawg
Hey, could you check my profile and tell me am do i have my gems,gear and tree correct. If improvements i would like to know :) Thanks
Hello everyone,

I'm trying to gear up as I'm starting T13+ maps.
I've ~11ex in bank but I'm kinda lost on what I should focus on :
- switching to LL and buy Shav and PoC (6L or 5L ?)
- stay CI and buy a 6L Vaal Regalia ?

My POB : https://pastebin.com/jGgMPmiz

If you can gear check me and give me some advice I would be glad.

Thanks !

The very first thing I see is that your wand has 'add x to x cold damage' which is ill advised with elemental equilibrium. Everything else looked more or less ok. You could squeeze out more energy shield with some equipment upgrades like gloves, but its hardly essential.

On the tree, I've noticed a lot of folks forgoing some of the energy shield in the lower part where the Foresight cluster is. Instead, more damage nodes on the right side of the tree are taken like Growth and Decay and/or Entropy.

Also recommended would be to get a level 21 vortex, as every level is a huge damage upgrade.
