Hi everyone , here is a new version of your favourite Auramancer.
Build is using multiple damaging auras and offensive procs on items and multiple devotions with fire dmg. It can tank most bosses and what it can’t tank it can kite and still deal dmg while running in circles.
This time we go Paladin - Guardians add another source of RR , Ascension + Seal is just an amazing defense and vire’s might is currently my favourite movement ability. Build reaches insane amount of FIRE RR , Censure 53%,Guardians 55%,Eldrith Fire 23%, Relic 10% = 141% + Elemental Storm and Viper
The difference is only in Medal - in SC we use
and in HC which is what i play most of the time i use it for 99% of the game and whenever i want to try something new or dangerous i swap medal and boots (to fix resistances) to Mark of Divinity.
Grimtools shows that resistances are not maxed - trust me, in game they are
i guess it just depends on item rolls - grimtools shows average rolls and not real rolls. For example my Shattered Realm chest has 1k hp and 5% phys resistance but in grimtools it shows 800 hp and 4% phys resistance.
Why not max out the Guardians ? those are maxed , everything is explained in Snapshotting section below.
What is that ? Skills in GD check the level of skill when you use them. Certain skills like Guardians , Blade Spirit , most pets and last time i checked bonds of bysmiel can use that as an advantage. You can equip items that add +levels to those skills before you cast them at the start of the game sesion
and then swap items to your regular set. The game will treat those skills as maxed untill you need to recast them - which for Guardians is never as they are invincible. This also works for some Skill Modifiers like :
This metod gives me 10% free RR and currently saves me 9 skill points.
If you want to test if it works simply get your character naked and summon a guardian , stand next to training dummy and watch the Celestial Presence damage. Restart the game , now summon guardian with 1 item that adds +1 level to Celestial Presence, get naked again and watch Celestial Presence damage on the dummy. Magic. Dont like it ? Dont use it but you have to figure out which points to drop to max guardians on your own.
Here is a quick video :
and list of items that i currently use :
some MI’s , chest is a reputation reward, rings have plenty of substitues even epic ones, neck and belt can be anything with +1 skills to oathkeeper
Gear explanation :
Rings = proc , those got buffed in FG and provide a bit of sustain on top of dmg - there are some new rings in FG that you can test aswell.
Chest = Personal choice, you can replace it with whatever chest you like for example green chest Of Schorched Ends for Fireball proc
Helm = Insane bonuses to Aura Of Censure , +1 oathkeeper skills, craftable
Amulet = damaging aura,+1 inquisitor skills, random drop
Weapon = Aura of Censure bonuses, random drop
Shield = Aura of Censure bonuses , can fix your resists here or get nice physical resistance like mine - MI farmed from beetles
Shoulders = offensive proc , random drop
Belt = proc + converts half of Seal of Blades dmg to fire, crafted
Relic = proc +1 inquistor skills, crafted
Gloves = proc , crafted
Pants and Boots for resists/hp/ proc if you manage to get one.
Medal = Aura of Censure bonuses , craftable. Mark of Divinity=survivability
Other gear options :
swaping 1 ring to https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/12187
and chest to https://www.grimtools.com/db/items/12426
for 100% pierce to fire conversion - increasing seal of blades dmg

Don’t try to level up as this build, level up however you like, farm and craft some of the required gear and then switch.
If you have Questions feel free to ask , if you have suggestions how to improve the build definitly post them. Let me know if you want me to record some specific video. In coming days i might recreate this build in SC and try to push some deeper SR but honestly its kinda meh to try and go deeper - it seems to me like its all about fishing for good mutators and boss combinations - kinda cheesy.
Zantai , dont nerf me bro.
