This PoE 3.11 Templar Herald of Purity Guardian Starter Build is super fast, tanky and the dps destroys just everything. The build should be able to do all content on relatively low budget.

Skill Tree


Radiant Crusade -> Unwavering Crusade -> Bastion of Hope -> Harmony of Purpose

The ascendancy guardian is great for minions with the buffs it got this league. It gives our minions clear speed and dps with unwavering and radiant crusade which I recommend as first and second lab. The third lab should be Bastion of Hope which is just crazy strong for defense... we get armour, block chance and nearly half of the time our we have max block chance. The last ascendancy is Harmony of Purpose which gives the chance to get endurance, power and frenzy charges on hit for us.


I would go with Soul of Arakaali and Tukohama to increase our physical damage mitigation, protection against Damage of Time effects and push our life regeneration. Soul of Shakari is also a good option for minor pantheon to reduce chaos damage taken and get immunity to poison.

Bandit: Kill them all for the two extra passive points because passives are very viable for this build.

Gems Setup

Herald of Purity + Feeding Frenzy + Deathmark / Minion Speed + Brutality + Multistrike / Melee Physical Damage + Impale

Herald of Purity is the main skill of this build and is used for clearing and for melting down bosses. TBH I really think it is the best single target dps with so low investment I ever had. In the standard setup I would use minion speed because while mapping you have more than enough dps. For endgame bosses you can switch in Deathmark support.

Blade Vortex / Bladefall + Arcane Surge + Unleash + Brutality

The main purpose of Blade Vortex setup is to kill trash mobs and hit bosses to spawn your Sentinels of Purity. Use a low level arcane surge which should always proc when you cast Blade Vortex.

(Another option as Main Skill is Blade Bladefall)

Summon Carrion Golem + Summon Stone Golem + Raise Spectre + Meat Shield

This setup is super strong and important for this build. The Golem and the Spectres stay always close to us and taunt enemies which come to close to us. Additionally the golems give powerful buffs to our minions and to us. The Carrion golem provides a lot of flat physical damage and the stone golem a lot flat life regeneration.


For additional protection I decided to go with spectres called Heretical Guardian (ruined / Ravaged Square, act 5&10) with a proximity shield. Another option is carnage chieftain (old fields, act2) for frenzy charges. The Problem with Carnage Chieftains is that the seem to die a lot while higher tier maps so I mostly played with Heretical Guardians because the proximaty shield is very nice and the more or less never die.

Use "A" to select the right corpse to summon your Spectre. If a spectre dies use desecrate to resummon them.

Whirling Blades + Faster Attacks + Fortify

The Whirling Blades setup allows us to travel very fast throw maps and Fortiy gives us additional survivability.

CWDT + Vaal Molten Shell + Enfeeble + Convocation

The cast when damage taken setup should proc Molten Shell for damage reduction, curses our enemies with enfeeble which reduces their damage and calls all our minions to us with convocation. Flesh Offering is a good alternative option for this setup for more dps. The Vaal Molten Shell can be used for dangerous encounter like Metamorphs.


Pride / Flesh and Stone / Dreadbanner + Enlighten

WIthout the circle of guilt rings we will not be able to use all mana reservation skills. You probably want to use Flesh and Stone and Dreadbanner. With the Circle of Guilt rings you will be able to use all mana reservation skills and a 6link Herald of Purity setup.

Punishment / Vulnerability

Punishment seems to give a bit more dps but vulnerability is available on corrupted gloves and on rings.

Summon Holy Relic

The holy relic helps us to keep our minions alive but could also replace by something else like vaal hast or spirit Offering for more dps.


Optional we can use Vaal Haste to push our dps a bit more. In my opinion that is not really necessary because our sentinel damage is already insane.


Can be used in our second weapon setup or just left in the inventory. It is used to create corpses to resummon our spectres if one or more of them died. Does not happen very often...

The build is based on two relatively cheap uniques - the Cold Iron Point dagger which increases the skill level of all physical skills per 3 - dual wielding means +6 levels to Herald of Purity, Carrion and Stone Golem, Pride and Vulnerability. And by the way those daggers are really cheap - bought two of them for four chaos orbs. One problem with Herald of Purity while mapping is that you need to kill enemies to always resummon your sentinels because there is not always a rare mob to hit nearby. The daggers have very low damage so attack based skills are not really an option. I decided to go with Blade Vortex because it also profits from the +6 levels and the damage of spells scales crazy with higher levels. Additionally Blade Vortex is a perfect fit for this build because it hits very often and after casting it is around for a short duration and with Unleash we only need to cast it once in a while.


Circle of Guilt

14% increased Chaos Damage
+16 to all Attributes
Adds 9 to 14 Physical Damage
+398 to Armour
Herald of Purity has 30% reduced Mana Reservation
Sentinels of Purity deal 86% increased Damage

Circle of Guilt

+12% to Global Critical Strike Multiplier
Minions have 6% increased Movement Speed
+15 to all Attributes
Adds 10 to 15 Physical Damage
+361 to Armour
Herald of Purity has 34% reduced Mana Reservation
Sentinels of Purity deal 95% increased Damage

The second unique we use for this build is the ring Circle of Guilt. We use two of those rings to reduce the mana reservation of Herald of Purity which allows us to run it as 6link and additionally we can run pride with it. The second stats you should look for on this ring is „Sentinel Damage“ which easy increases your dps by a few 100k.

Another option to reduce the mana reservation of Herald of Purity is the Coming Calamity armour which reduces the mana reservation of Herald skill always to 35%.

Cluster Jewels

Following are possible options for CLUSTER JEWELS NOTABLES:

Lone Messenger (not 100% sure if this will be worth it)

Pure Agony (more or less a must have if you can get it)


Rotten Claws
