    Playing the Vaal lottery can be fun. I have gotten back into selling extras and saving the rest for maps though.

    Unique rings have a value floor around 2c apiece, since each one is 1/60 of a Loreweave.

    A few select unique jewels are quite valuable (Clear Mind is a good example) so I'd price check them on poe.trade before you do anything. Frankly, it's probably not worth spending the Vaal Orb in most cases -- you're better off just vendoring them for alchemy shards.

    There are some good uniques out there. Malachai's Artifice is an interesting one, as it gives you free elemental equilibrium on a single skill, and they got rid of the 40% effectiveness it had prior to 3.5. You can make a single element build, then stick one spell of a different element in MA and use it to lower the resistance of your main attacks. Your main attacks won't proc EE and undo the -resistance



    Or just save up 60 unique rings to make a Loreweave at the vendor.

    I actually have a Malachai's Artifice. its only selling for 2.8c but it looked interesting enough to save.They removed Elemental Equilibrium completely from the item in 3.5. I'm talking about the utter useless jewels and rings. Correct me if im wrong but a corrupted ring can still be traded for the loreweave right? (i know it could turn it into a rare, so ill probably only do this with unique jewels).

    I was thinking Incandescent Heart and Malediction and Frigid Wake with Temp Chains, Enfeeble and Frostbite curses for all the defense layers. And maybe Double Strike or Reave, something to take advantage of the AoE nodes in Witch and Templar? And Crown of Eyes. And the focus mod that gives you Vaal Pact while focused.

    And CwDT - Vaal Cold Snap - Bonechill - Hypothermia for frenzy charges while clearing and bossing.

    I just started a bit last night and am up to level 18 in Act 2. I'm already seeing multiple friends of mine at level 94.

    This league I'm trying out windripper MF for the first time (raider), and am thinking about doing shaped red-tier map strategy.

    Sadly, the grind to 36 burned me out so bad last league that I just didn't feel like playing the first few days of this league. But the challenges look easier.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    I gave up on my cold DoT occultist, I kept getting destroyed in yellow maps by syndicate members. I think it could be good as CI with an apeps like waggles BV boss killer character.

    I made another molten strike nebuloch juggernaut, I managed to buy a xoph's blood before they got super expensive. I'm still running around in a tabula with garbage gloves, hat, and belt but I easiily killed a corrupted Chimera with #% phys as lightning and fought a 3-person intervention team so I'm pretty happy with my decision to reroll. The intervention team sent me to 1k health remaining several times, but it was nice being able to look at them without instantly exploding in a sad cloud of lost experience.

    With the addition of fossils and new master affixes I'm no longer locked into a half dozen uniques as a Summoner. The minmaxed build might actually run only rares.

    I was looking at a nebuloch build, I think it was engineering eternity. That looks like a crazy tanky build. Should be a lot of fun.

    It's quite tanky, though to buy everything you need it is somewhat expensive. It's the type of build that doesn't really work until you have at least a few of the basic parts, so I wouldn't even start until you have those purchased. Leveling it is somewhat frustrating because you take almost no general damage nodes at all while you are pathing out to get the big keystones. I bought a Nycta's lantern which helped quite a bit.

    For the basic build to work you need 2 kaoms way (40c currently) and 2 nebuloch (65c ish). You can make do with avatar of fire instead of a xoph's blood. You'll have to run purity of elements until you can buy 3-4 jewels with 30+ total elemental resistance or a really good hat and belt. Ideal jewels have: life/attk speed with maces/all resist which go for 35c-1ex depending

    Eventually you want koam's roots with +1 endurance, a 6l loreweave and a prismatic eye jewel with 15% ele pen from Anger. In delve I never did buy a hat with the MS enchant, I'm hoping I can get one of those this league, though they have gone from 4-5ex to 12ex in the last day or so.

    The major downside to the build is the somewhat slow clear-speed, and you have to leap slam everywhere which is fairly annoying with a 1.4aps mace. You can fix this a bit with a weapon swap but it is risky because you lose all your defensive bonuses when nebuloch aren't present.

    If you want free full fire (ie no need for expensive necklace) that is still pretty tanky just go chief.

    Yeah you just have to know how to search the wiki it can be a pain. You can also do a search for like "list of unique helmets" and it will list the affixes and you can do a ctrl-f to find minion damage.

    poetrade lets you filter things and then also you can buy them so maybe poetrade?

    Assuming this link works: http://poe.trade/search/uteniwodomaras

    That should be every currently being sold unique that has at least one of the following mods
    "minions deal #% increased damage"
    "Minions have #% increased attack speed"
    "Minions deal #% increased damage (implicit)"
    "#% increased minion damage if you have hit recently"

    There are other mods you might want to add into the search, like one that adds damage the more skeletons you have? I dont know what build you're going for, but there are probably a few unique mods that might be worth adding to the mod list to help add unique to the list.

    Made a few lucky drops, but mostly my friend and I rushed to maps the first day of the league. Being among the first to find stuff like 300+ pdps swords makes it easy make money. Or like Tuesday night I ran a safehouse and got two essence worms from it. Easy 90c or so, in 2 weeks that’ll be more like 10c in profit.

    We got a max tiny crafting bench and then bought the div cards that give a 6l astral. Crafted it with tiny and flipped the body armor for 3ex. Stuff like that.

    Swapped spell echo for faster casting on my Storm brand and it feels so much better.

    I've been swapping back and forth between Armageddon and Storm and I think I like Storm better. Armageddon is slick about how fast you can get your brands out but it adds so much visual clutter and the meteor impact delay is really noticable.
