I really enjoy the idea of an Elementalist in Path of Exile; a witch focused on manipulating the elements of the world to cause great damage. The Elemancer portion of the Elementalist ascendancy probably makes the idea of an Elementalist appealing to me in how you use your golems as buffs. So how does a Fireball hybrid caster feel in comparison?
Been playing around with various builds as of late. I wanted to try both a Mjonir cyclone build and some form of an elementalist. I ended up settling on both but focused on elementalist as a Xoph’s Inception had dropped for me, which motivated me to give this build a try. While the Mjonir build is on hold, the elementalist build has been going full force.
Today, I managed to finish up my Golemancer in terms of the story mode and entered her into mapping. Pretty much I managed to get to T8 maps (level 82) with no issues with the Merciless Lab and easily 1-shotting Kitava on Act 10. As the servers are being restarted, I decided to take the rest of the night off and review my experience for today.
So I ended up pulling the trigger on starting up a Golemancer Elementalist. I had progressed her to level 73 and was about to beat act 9 when the game crashed. In turn, I decided to take a break and just meditate over the leveling experience thus far.
