Intro & build description
The poisonous concoction is a relatively new skill that has been really shining as a great mapping and league starter build. If you want a smooth league start with the ability to breeze through the Atlas, this Pathfinder build will be a perfect choice for 3.18 Sentinel.
- Great as a league starter - doesn't require any specific items to work
- Can clear all map mods
- Fast map clear
- The build is not specifically designed as a boss killer, but it can do Shaper, Elder, and guardians with basic life + resistance gear
- Reflect is not an issue
- Scales really well with currency investments
- Getting good cluster jewels will be quite hard very early in the league

Your ideal helmet should have at least 80 life, some resistances and “Nearby Enemies have -x% to Chaos Resistance” mod.
Body ArmourCherrubim's Maleficence
Great, cheap body armor which works perfectly with this build. Look for one with increased chaos damage mod as close to 80 as possible.
Look for rare gloves with high life, some resistance and chance to suppress spell damage.
Look for rare boots with at least 80 to maximum life, 30% increased movement speed, some resistance and chance to suppress spell damage.
Left RingRare Iolite Ring
Look for rare Iolite ring with high life, chaos resistance and elemental resistance.
Right RingRare Ring with Despair On Hit
Look for a rare ring with life and “Curse Enemies with Despair on Hit, with 32% increased Effect” mod. Chaos resistance or elemental resistances would be great additional mods.
We focus on damage mods with our amulet, so look for damage over time multiplier, chaos damage over time multiplier and + 1 to Level of all Chaos/Dexterity Skill Gems mods. Life is a good additional mod to bench craft.
2 of them at the same time should be attainable quite easily after a few days in the league.
BeltRare Stygian Vise
Look for rare Stygian Vise with high life, chaos resistance and some additional elemental resistances.
Lycosidae is the shield of choice for the build.
With this shield, our hits can’t be evaded and we don’t have to worry about accuracy.
This build uses 3 cluster jewels, 1 large and 2 medium.
On Large cluster look for 8 passives and following mods:
1) Unwaveringly evil
2) Touch of Cruelty
3) Unholy Grace
On Medium clusters look for 4 passives and following mods:
1) Circling Oblivion
2) Flow of Life
JewelGlorious Vanity (Xibaqua version)
Endgame build also uses Glorious Vanity to convert Elemental Equilibrium keystone to Divine Flesh. This keystone helps with damage mitigation, which is also further boosted with Soul of Shakari pantheon.
Make sure your chaos resistance is capped at maximum before you allocate Divine Flesh.

1) Chaos damage over time multiplier
2) Attack speed while holding a shield
3) Increased maximum life
4) Chaos / Elemental Resistances
5) Attributes if you are lacking
