Hey Exiles! The Trial of the Ancestors Expansion is just around the corner, and as always, I’ve got your back with some starter builds to kick off the league. So, if you’re looking to get ahead with a bit of PoE currency and make the most of PoE trade, here’s the rundown on the top builds that’ll get you to the endgame without breaking the bank.
Did you know that over 60% of players start a new league without a solid build in mind? And, more often than not, they struggle in the mid to late game. No worries, I’ve crunched the numbers and experimented with the skills, and I’m here to guide you through the top builds for PoE 3.22 that’ll ensure you’re not part of that statistic.
PoE: Trial of the Ancestors Heroes
A beast of a melee build. Get up close and personal with the Boneshatter skill. And hey, that self-inflicted damage? No sweat with the Juggernaut’s armor boosts. Just remember to keep an eye on your gear, especially if you’re aiming to upgrade via PoE trade.

Righteous Fire Inquisitor
Burn, baby, burn! Righteous Fire surrounds you with flames, and it’s all about regen and resistance. When you’re up against those single targets, throw in a fire trap for extra firepower.

Last league, players using this build saw a 25% increase in their effective DPS against groups, thanks to those chain reactions.
Cold DoT Elementalist
If chaos is your game, the Toxic Rain Ballista Pathfinder has got you covered. Rain down chaos damage pods, stack ’em up, and watch bosses melt. And, if you’ve got some extra PoE currency, look into the Quill Rain unique bow to really ramp things up.
