Quick Jump

Pros & Cons

  • + tanky. Can face tank at least 95% of the game with ease.
  • + good clear.
  • + uses a lot of synergies
  • - to feel good, needs significant tree progression and with it higher level (at least 80)

  • - boss dps is not top tier


Skill Tree

Ascendancy: Plague Binder -> Corpse Pact -> Essence Glutton -> Mistress of Sacrifice(alternatively Commander of Darkness).

Leap Slam - Faster Attacks - Fortify

Clarity, Vaal Righteous Fire, Desecrate, Herald of Ash.

Optionally Aspect of the Spider from gear. If it is used, Clarity should be lvl 1 extra HP pool is more important, then gained mana regen. 


Gear Setup

Necessary Gear 

Pledge of Hands: This staff gives very good mana boost, while providing good damage as well.

Cloak of Defiance: Great mana and mana regen boost, extra 10% MoM, saves 1 point on the tree by not needing to allocate MoM keystone.

Scold's Bridle: Automates most of the stuff. Makes play self cast VD actually nice.

Atziri's Foible: Huge mana boost. Budget anoint is Dreamer notable.

Leather Belt

+45 to maximum Life
Grants Level 20 Aspect of the Spider Skill
+52 to Strength
+99 to maximum Life
18% increased Flask Mana Recovery rate
22% increased Mana Recovery rate
+60 to maximum Mana

Increased mana recovery is the important mod here. Flask recovery rate is not needed.

Mana Flask

Passives in radius are Conquered by the Templars
4% increased Area Damage per 10 Devotion
4% increased Elemental Damage per 10 Devotion

Damage rolls or resist are a nice bonus. Need to be careful with those jewels, they can transform important Notables into something useless. But also may transform not used Notables into something very nice. Best slot for it is between Witch and Templar, right under MoM. Alternatively scion start slot can be used, i use it myself, since this jewel i have bricks Essence Extraction for me.

Great Gear to have

Omeyocan: 20% Dodge and Spell Dodge is amazing. Permanent Onslaught is very nice too.

Transcendent Spirit: Socketed in Ranger area, this jewel provides nice mana boost and 10% movement speed for extra mobility. This item is not optainable in leagues anymore, only as legacy version. Split Personality unique jewel with mana and life roll is actually much better in that socket now.


Leveling Suggestion

2. Quick Recovery.

3. Straight to Heart of Flame.

4. Straight to Phase Acrobatics.

5. Fill up necessary life and mana nodes as shown in base PoB
