If getting started with leagues is something you’re working towards, here’s some builds you can use.
There are plenty of builds you can work towards when spending your PoE currency for leagues. But which are the best for you to use? Before we head over to PoE trade to get the items we need, let’s first take a look at the best builds to start with.
For a truly effective beginner build, go with the Arc Witch. This is something that has been well recognised by many players as far as it goes for arc builds being used with league starters. This build is capable of breezing through even the likes of the Delirium content that was a part of the game a while back, which was considered to be one of the toughest leagues to date.
As for its clearing skills, it is up there with some of the very best. No need to save up your Chaos or Exalted Orb too much to get it either, and we won’t be relying on gear compared to other builds. You can choose pretty much any wand and it’ll do the job. It is overall straightforward to use and will serve as a fantastic choice for a starter that you can use. Mobs won’t cause you much trouble, nor will the story mode aspect of the game.
Arc Mines Saboteur
If you want a more challenging form of an arc build however, then this is a choice for you to go with. This is something to consider if you are a more seasoned player of PoE, though when you’re ready you’ll have the best miner build in the whole game.
It’s clearing spell is unmatched, with mines taking it into a whole league of its own. If you’re looking for a build that levels quickly, then this is it. Combining arc with mines makes this an incredibly efficient build for you to choose.
Double Strike Champion
If you want to focus more on a melee build, then check out the Double Strike Champion. This is for those who like a no-nonsense scrap with their enemies. This steers away from slow combat to offer up a fast-paced attacking system that has fantastic survivability as well. With great damage against both single and multiple enemies, you are looking at a highly effective all-round build to use in battle.
Perhaps more importantly, it is useful for new players. Once you have some gloves, you don’t need to fret about unique items to support you. That said, if you do have the PoE currency available to part with, This will help you to perform better with the build as well as invest in more expensive gear. And don’t worry about bosses either, as you will soon be able to sweep them aside. In fact, if you were to use flasks and buffs, you could skip entire boss fights completely in some cases.
For those who favour summoners, try the Skelemancer build as a league starter. This take on the necromancer uses its skeleton army along with zombies and spectres to aid them. This build allows you to be independent gear wise, and you won’t have to show concern about your minions’ damage coming through equipment. There’s no uniques that have to be used, or jewels that will cost you the majority of your PoE currency. Keep your resistance capped and you should have no trouble.
When it comes to clearing mob packs, you will find the Skelemancer excelling. This goes for bosses too or difficult enemies that you come across. They are a great build for learning the game too, since you can take note and observe in a lot of battles whilst your minions do all the hard work. Simply find a safe place to be and survive, whilst the minions do everything.
All of these builds are highly effective when it comes to a good league starter. You might want to look on PoE Trade at some useful items for your build too. That said, a lot of them don’t depend on you having to use PoE uniques or depend on certain gear. You can simply get what’s relevant for the build and way you go. With aspects such as clearing mobs, taking out bosses and much more, all of these builds work in uniquely exciting and useful ways. That said, you should pick the one that works best for you, depending on the approach that you are going to be taking when traversing the world of Path of Exile.
