Path Of Exile 3.23: How About This Archer Skeletons Guardian Build?

Posted: Dec 27, 2023

Fellow Exiles, welcome to another exciting build review. We’ll show you all the information you need to decide if this build is right for you in just a few minutes. Without further ado, let’s get started!

Archer Skeletons Guardian

Today’s guide is about this brand new minion build that ended up being much better than I imagined, Archer Skeletons Guardian with Templar Class.

I’m pretty sure by now you all know that the very popular Mage Skeleton pairs perfectly with the new Transfigured Gems. But we now have Archer Skeletons, so I spent the weekend trying them out and got this super fun build. So I hope you all enjoy it.

Pros & Cons

Now, to list the pros of this build, I would start with its balance. Unlike Mage Skeleton, this build has a smoother clearing speed and can deal more damage to bosses.

And the build isn’t complicated to assemble. We just need one mandatory unique item. And the most important thing is that POE Currency budget it requires is very low. As a Guardian, we still have three free damage auras and a minion that takes 20% of the damage for us.

Now to list the cons, I’ll start by saying that while this build is still very tanky and safe, it’s not quite as tanky as Mage Skeleton builds because it has less chance to block. But don’t worry, if you keep an eye on your position, you’ll have a hard time dying.


As for budget, this build is pretty cheap. You only need to invest about 35 Chaos Orbs to easily destroy early endgame maps. But to get into Yellow Maps, you need to invest about 90 points of Chaos Orbs.

Also, I recommend investing in about 3 Divine Orbs to easily complete your Atlas. But you can definitely do it for less.

This version you only need one mandatory unique item, Lioneye’s Vision armor. It already provides Pierce Support and allows us to have one more support gem for our skeleton.

Clear Speed

For clear speed, I would give it a 9 out of 10. We have many Archer Skeletons that fire many arrows and have a high attack speed. Unlike Mage Skeleton build which uses Spell Echo Support. Here, we can easily project four skeletons at once in different locations and greatly increase their damage range.

Boss Damage

The boss’s damage is amazing and deserves a 10 out of 10. With this build, we can easily destroy those endgame bosses in seconds. And just using Determination Aura.

But if you play in Affliction League, you can use Perfect Guardian Turtle to get free Determination Aura, and use Pride to deal more damage.


I would give this build a 9 out of 10 for its survivability. As a minion build, you’ll be out of the endgame as they tank for you and kill everything. This is a very safe style of play. But this build also has an effective HP of over 90,000. Because of the high armor, high block chance, and minions taking 20% of your damage.

The one point I deducted is because we didn’t use this Staff like Mage Skeleton build, so we ended up with less chance to block and less effective HP.

That’s it for today. What do you think of this Archer Skeletons Guardian? Please take a moment to tell me. Have a great day and don’t forget to keep building.
