Thanks for the guide!

Does Inoculation have any effect after we take Decrepify? Or is it just taken if you can’t find good poison resist gear?

Thanks :slight_smile:

I believe its 20% less poison damage takem globally

I’m not entirely sure but I assume that in the “Summon Skeleton” tree the point in “Aegis of Death” is supposed to be in “Shambling Steel”.
The “Aegis of Death” node does not really benefit us too much as we always want exactly three skeletons at all times due to the “Hungering Soul” tree “Unholy Trinity” node. So we’re recasting it upon one skeleton’s death anyways.
On the other hand, the “Shambling Steel” node does kinda benefit us by having only warriors which are generally more tanky and they all benefit from the “Bone Armor” node, making them even tankier. This makes us having to recast “Summon Skeletons” less frequently.

new player here. Have been following the build and its been fun so far. i have been lucky enough to get the unique ‘shroud of obscurity’. Could this be incorporated into the build?

Probably not.
If you want to go low life, you will need Exsanguinous and Last Steps of the Living, but Shroud of Obscurity has a too weak effect.

I’m not sure about that. The Shroud has 13% of your missing hp converted to ward compared to 20% on Exsanguinous though if you go with the Shroud & stack dodge then you get ward on dodge as well.

You’d definitely need the boots as well though.

Need the boots, yes. And as he said “new player”, I guess he does not have them yet.

Made me wonder someone did a build on hungering souls ^^. Then again I have a procc build as well and transplant arround like a monkey to spam Marrowshards :D.


I"m a new player - asking for advice. I leveld up my character to level 84 and found the unique item Marina’s lost soul: Marina's Lost Soul - Unique Profane Wand - Wand - Last Epoch Item Database

Does it in the build construction?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Best regards!

Looks like it would be an ok leveling uniqie but overall would be very easy with just a tier 1 high base wand to do more damage amd have better effects and not suffer from -10% health alomg with self damage from damned

Ok, thanks for your quick answer!

Are you sure?
Maomao uses it in the last version of his Crit Lich. He does high level arena with it.

Nope im not upon secomd look i thought it had 10 to 25 adaptive as its implicit. Thats definitely a high end base at second glance. You could definitely use it @dissectionx

Domt tell @Llama8


That’s great - thanks @boardman21 and @Shtrak. Can’t wait to play this evening!

Of course, I would never tell @Llama8 ! I would feel too bad to tell him!

That’s fine, I’m used to not being told anything.

Would you be so kind to share the build? @Shtrak

Yes, sure!

And it’s even better when explained by the creator:

thanks - gonna give it a try!
