We usually rarely see the combination of Tankiness and Magic Find in POE builds. But it is really troublesome to use too many portal defensive layers at the same time in the build. With this in mind, I decided to try making a tank Magic Find character.
High Movement Speed
For this build, I wanted to focus on high movement speed. The current build in the map environment has over 250% movement speed. We achieve this through several things.
As you know, in POE 3.22 we had tattoos, and this build uses 20 tattoos. All of this gives us a pretty high movement speed buff.
For Ascendancy, we choose Pathfinder because she will increase the effectiveness of Quicksilver Flask. This alone gives us 111% movement speed. When we have this buff, Phasing on kill will give us 10% extra movement speed.
Also, if you’re talking about speed, you can’t ignore this Haste Aura which gives us 21% movement speed. Combining all of this, our build gained over 250% movement speed.
Quantity & Rarity
This build uses 2 good rolling unique rings, Ventor’s Gamble. They have maximum rolling item quantity, top item rarity, and good health rolling.
We also can’t miss Magic Find’s Divination Distillate Flask. And this flask is always active because we play Pathfinder. The only sad thing is that you have to press Flask every 5 seconds. Despite this, the current build quantity is 58% and item rarity is 135%.
Without damage, speed and quantity are almost worthless. So we upgraded all my gear and gems, starting with 1 Divine Orb. Let’s see what we get in terms of damage.
First, we build with 2 active skill gems. One for mapping and one for bossing. The first skill is our clear skill, Caustic Arrow. If you fire with a bow, it will create Caustic Ground where the projectile lands, which can cause more Chaos DOTs.
But this skill alone is not suitable for leveling, so we added Arrow Nova Support. With this combination, our clearing speed will be much faster.
Our boss’ skill is Toxic Rain. This will cause Spore Pods to spawn where the projectile lands. Over time, this will start to cause chaos damage in an area, and they can overlap each other.
Now, if you have a higher POE Currency budget, we can optimize our single target. You need to hit a certain threshold of increased area to get maximum overlap. All Spore Pods will overlap. We achieve this with Bow Mastery on the passive tree.
We’ll take the remainder from Crafting Bench’s simple glove craft, and our area effect increases by 39%.
We still use Withering Step in our builds. When I switch to Anomalous version, this will cause 2 extra Withers and increase the quality with Enhance Support. So, with just one click of the button, we’re going to create 9 layers of Wither overlay. This will increase our damage, while Toxic Rain will also apply more stacks.
On the defensive side, we’ve also made a lot of upgrades. We convert 88% of physical damage into elemental damage.
Of these, 50% can be achieved using Lightning Coil alone, while Taste of Hate’s maximum scroll rate is 24% as we increase flask effect nodes allocated on the tree. We also upgraded our helmets and saw a 14% increase in conversion rates.
Because we convert so much damage into elemental damage, we can use all elemental damage reduction bottles. This way, we can significantly reduce the damage taken when converting from physical damage to elemental damage.
In addition, we can also use Grace Aura to increase the evasion level, so that we will almost never die from the monster’s normal attacks or projectiles.
Because we use Ancestral Vision, this build also has cold and freeze immunity. Also, a modifier that suppresses spell damage chance also applies to avoiding Elemental Ailments, with a value of 50%. We also get 60% other disease avoidance, which is enough to not get shocked or ignited on the map.
Next, let’s talk about some important POE items you’ll need in this build.
First, aim your weapon for +1 socketed bow gems and increased Chaos DOT. Craft +2 socketed support gems and Chaos DOT.
On your quiver, they multiply normal damage over time, and bow and life damage are increased. It’s also worth mentioning that you’ll need a Penetrating Arrow Quiver, as this will help with your removal.
All Chaos skill gems on your amulet have +1 DOT. Lightning Coil is a big physical damage reduction for this build. Also, Ventor’s Gamble has good quantity and item rarity, and tries to aim for high health.
We use Pathfinder as Ascendancy.
In your first lab, we took Nature’s Reprisal and upgraded it with Toxic Rain. So this node was a significant change in its early behavior.
The second lab uses Nature’s Adrenaline to help you generate massive Flask Charges.
In the third lab, we took Nature’s Boon. If you have a full life, Master Surgeon will keep your Magic Find Flask active at all times.
