Path Of Exile: Best Starter Builds For Ritual League
The new POE League has finally begun, so for POE players, finding a perfect build is the most important thing.
Ritual challenge league
The challenge league in POE is essentially a series of challenges, and you can try to obtain circular rewards. Every 13 weeks, the league will change to a new theme. This time, it changed from Heist to Ritual, all you need to do is to fight a group of monsters while dealing with booster effects or environmental hazards. It released the Echoes of the Atlas expansion, which includes changes to current build components. So the old builds may not adapt to the new league.
What do starter builds need to consider?
Before you start creating a build, you need to consider what the build is for. Because this is a combat league, you will continue to face challenges, so direct damage and high survivability are the keys. In addition to considering budget and scale, you also need to consider the use of summoning or personal defense to prevent damage, as well as the foe-shredding, universal damage.
The Toxic Rain DoT Trickster covers a lot of ground with powerful, face-melting damage. This is a slight change from the Toxic Rain Mine Trickster in the Heist League and contains some of the same concepts.
Explosive Trap Saboteur can produce a large amount of damage at the right positioning at one time, clear the waves, and can cause huge damage to bosses without waiting for the damage stacks.
Returning from the Heist League is a Spectre based Necromancer: the Summon Raging Spirits Necromancer. Necromancers and Tricksters have always been considered two of the best in POE.
For players who prefer the physically inclined, Super Cyclone, a Leeching Slayer build, can split enemies effortlessly while maintaining their own health.
In another DoT vein, the Bleed Blow Gladiator can effectively block attacks, while making the enemy bleed a lot in multiple attacks.
Of course, there are more builds that can be used, but these are enough for any gameplay.
Even if you are a PS4 or Xbox One user, you can also buy the matching POE Currency on IGGM.
