Path of Building Link:



[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Ground Slam Champion League Starter Build

  • + Leaguestart and scaling: Just pick up ground slam and go, big impales and fort+armour from our ascend makes levelling a breeze and jumping into maps easy as well.
  • + Stunning Durability: Ground Slam puts out some big stuns meaning enemies don't get to attack you, and what does get through has to penetrate several layers of defences.
  • + Low Stress: Few required items and light on skills to use, this is a very laid back build to play.
  • - Stat budget: The build uses a lot of uniques with low/zero resist, plus we cannot equip gloves or a shield. It's not terribly hard to pack enough on belt/rings but gets expensive if you want damage mods as well.
  • - Chaos/Degens: I personally just run near -60 and deal with it, but there is room for some in the build if you can afford it.



Intro: Easy to build melee character that's not afraid to tank some hits and does big damage. Running into packs and slamming them flat feels amazing, plus we can stun nearly anything with Vaal Ground Slam including awakener 8. Easy leaguestart and progression with big power coming from our ascend points. With balanced gear you should hit around ~5500hp and ~10mil DPS.

Path of Building: Leaguestart | Midrange | Endgame




Duelist Gladiator 

[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Reave Gladiator League Starter / Budget Friendly Build

[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Bleed Earthquake Gladiator League Starter / Budget Friendly Build

[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Lacerate Gladiator Tank / Fast ClearSpeed / Easy Build


[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Reave Gladiator League Starter / Budget Friendly Build

  • Boss killer, Simulacrum, Blight, league farmer & a mapper - all in one.
  • Uber Elder, AW9, T19 100% Delirious maps deathless!
  • One of the strongest league starters!
  • Very flexible - will not shatter under market pressure even if it's popular!
  • Pseudo-melee on steroids - the biggest melee AOE in the game.
  • A skill and playstyle which is fun & engaging! I've played it myself for 8 leagues already.
  • A build where you can feel the power & progress!
  • 5M DPS with 2 EX budget gear - up to realistic 50M in league!
  • 75% block, Overleech, Fortify, 79% all res, Maim, Blind, Steelskin, Endurance charges, Off Screen AOE, 6.5K HP & more!

Always set your Reave, Vaal Reave, Vaal Double Strike and totems as attack without moving.

PoE Duelist Gladiator Reave Starter Build Skill Gems

Always set your Steelskin on your left click and make sure to put it back there if you swap gems as it automatically removes itself from that slot.

If the gem has Awakened or alternative quality, you may choose the normal version before buying the more expensive one.


Vaal Reave - Impale - Awakened Brutality - Multistrike - Awakened Melee Physical Damage - Rage

Use Vaal Reave if you're at 4 stacks to push the range to 8 stacks.

Vaal Reave can also be used during mapping for a quick burst of even more damage as Vaal Reave itself has 2x the damage of a normal Reave.


Tempest Shield, Ancestral Protector, Steelskin, Vaal Ancestral Warchief

Steelskin goes on left click.


Leap Slam, Reckoning, Life Gain on Hit

This helps generate Power Charges very reliably, especially with alternate quality Power Charge on Critical and helps applying on hit effects while providing another source of life.


Vaal Double Strike, Melee Physical Damage, Brutality, Multistrike

Use this 0.5 seconds before engaging the boss. It essentially doubles your DPS for the amount that the clones are doing their work.

So if your character does 30M Reave Damage, then for 6 seconds you'll be doing 60M damage.


Blood Rage, Dread Banner, Blood and Sand

Blood Rage needs to be refreshed mid fight at bosses if you want to use it at bosses. It's also reasonable to not use it at all to increase life leech. I also suggest not using Blood Rage at the Maven boss at all.


Pride, Arrogance, Blood Rage

Purity has to be unlinked or it will reserve your life.


Ascendancy: Impact - Brutal Fervour - Bane of Legends - Headsman

Pantheon: Arakaali & Ryslatha

Bandit: Alira

Path of Building Link:



[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Bleed Earthquake Gladiator League Starter / Budget Friendly Build

If you looking for a Tanky build with high damage and budget-friendly, you've come to the right place.



Vaal Earthquake - Chance to Bleed - Fist of War - BrutalityAwakened Deadly AilmentsMelee Physical Damage(Swap melee phy to Less Duration have a better clear speed)

Path of Building Link

Had to Edit the pob to show the damage with the last hit for the exerted attack and the 100% more damage with Ailments with Fist of War
The edit information is at the weapon.

Standart SETUP

121M of bleed damage/ 22M BLEED DPS:

Budget version:

Budget Version No-Cluster:



[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Lacerate Gladiator Tank / Fast ClearSpeed / Easy Build

  • + Fast Clearspeed (Crazy leap speed!)
  • + Super EZ to run (Even for first timers)
  • + Can do all content
  • + Cheap to get it up and running, not too expensive to meta
  • + Ranked Uber Lab runner (Check below for ladder scores*)
  • + Good league starter
  • + Fun to play (Packs explode all at once!)
  • + SSF Friendly
  • + Console Friendly
  • - Maven fight and some Maven arena boss combinations needs investment to do
  • - More oriented to fast clearspeed than bossing (With bossing getting much better at Meta Gear stats)
  • - Not recommended for Hardcore
  • - Can’t run Physical Reflect maps



Gems Setup

Lacerate - Melee Physical Damage - Brutality - Multistrike - Impale - Fortify

Vaal Ancestral Warchief - Melee Physical Damage - Brutality - Maim

Aura: Pride - Blood and Sand - Dread Banner - Arctic Armour

Blood Rage - Increased Duration - Enhance

Cast when Damage Taken - Immortal Call - Increased Duration - Vulnerability

Movement: Leap Slam - Faster Attacks - Endurance Charge on Melee Stun


Path of Building Link

40 -> 50 -> 60 -> 76 -> 90 -> 94 -> 98


  • Until we get a Soul Taker, we need to use Life and Mana Leech node and respec it after we get it.
  • If in need of Intelligence or Dexterity, pick +30 to Intelligence or Dexterity nodes.
  • These passive trees are made for playing without a cluster jewel and Thread of Hope, mostly for levelling. When adding a Cluster Jewel or Thread of Hope, please refer to passive trees in Path of Building links of Required Gear or Meta Gear up above

Required Gear (lv92): (3.2m Shaper DPS, 6.0k life) 

Meta Gear (lv98): (6.45m Shaper DPS[9.46m with Berserk enabled], 7.0k life)



Duelist Slayer

[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Phys Cyclone Gladiator Budget Build


[Archnemesis] PoE 3.17 Duelist Phys Cyclone Gladiator Budget Build

  • + works on a budget
  • + boss killer
  • + can do all map mods except "cannot leech" which is extremely rare
  • + tanky (7k+ effective life, Fortify, Leech)
  • + SSF viable (even more than before, farm Elder for amulet)
  • + HC viable
  • + 4mil+ DPS (without counting totem or cull)
  • - maxing out somewhat expensive (Tombfist, Ryslatha, decent Exquisite blade)
  • - totem is a bit squishy and clunky

Gems Setup

Take the regular 21/20 Cyclone version just because of the additional AoE it provides and because it wont consume Vaal souls. The Vaal version is very bad as it literally (and unfortunately) locks you in place for a set period of time.

Get the Vaal ancestral Warchief instead.

[from most important to least, prioritize like this]

Cyclone (6L) = Brutality > Fortify > Infused Channeling > Close Combat > Melee Phys

Vaal Ancestral Warchief (5L+1S) = Ancestral Protector + Maim + Brutality + Conc Effect + Impale

Gloves 2L (Tombfist) = Ice Golem + Minion Life

1st 4L = Determination + Blood and Sand + Dread Banner


2nd 4L = Dash + Second Wind + Enduring Cry + Blood Rage

Ascendancy: Headsman -> Bane of Legends -> Impact or Brutal Fervour -> Overwhelm or Brutal Fervour*

Pantheon: Lunaris + Shakari - MAX THEM BOTH THEY ARE GOOD.

Bandit: Alira or kill all
