POE 3.21 Builds: Best Violence Variant Spark Guardian, High Dps & Survivability
Welcome to POE 3.21 Crucible League Violence Variant Spark Guardian build guide. The spiritual successor to one of my favourite builds a few leagues ago, but it is still one of my favourite builds this season.. This character uses a lot of power and ideas from that build but adds some powerful items. If you're a player who likes to go all out, this build might be for you.

This build is centered around Doriani's Prototype, an item that grants infinite damage. It also utilizes Aegis Aurora, a shield that grants infinite defense, and Tailwind Elusive Boots, which grant infinite speed. Spark is the primary skill, which hits everything on the screen and deals more single-target damage than most other skills.
Compared to the previous version, one of the main changes in this build is the transition from Guardian to Inquisitor. This allows for using the Armor of Radiant Faith for charges of Harmony of Purpose, which grants decent regeneration and mitigation, along with the block. The build also uses Wrath and Discipline auras, which require dropping Tempus Shield and Petrified Blood. Purity of Ice is moved from the life pool to the mana pool reservation, and Into Termination is used in the life pool reservation.
The build is compelling and has the potential to clear all content, but it does require a significant amount of investment. However, it is essential to note that this build can quickly become a grind, so it is essential to determine if this is how you want to play Path of Exile.
Passive Tree, Bandits, Ascendancy and Pantheon
Passive Tree: The passive tree for this build can be found on Path of Building or POE Ninja. It focuses on picking up nodes with maximum life, elemental damage, spell damage, and critical strike chance/multiplier. The pathing is straightforward, starting at the Templar and going towards the Witch and Shadow areas. It's important to pick up Elemental Overload and Mind Over Matter for extra damage and survivability. Take the bandit Oak for extra life.
Bandits: The recommended bandit choice for this build is to help Alira with the extra critical strike chance, mana regeneration, and resistance.
Ascendancy: This build uses the Inquisitor Ascendancy for the extra critical strike chance, penetration, and consecrated ground bonuses. Take the Augury of Penitence, Instruments of Virtue, Sanctify, and Pious Path in that order.
Pantheon: The major Pantheon recommended for this build is Soul of Lunaris, which grants additional physical damage reduction and evasion. The minor Pantheon recommended is Soul of Tukohama, which grants additional physical damage reduction while stationary.
Skills and Links
The main skill used in this build is Spark, linked with Spell Echo, Controlled Destruction, Hypothermia, Elemental Focus, and Pierce. For mobility, use Flame Dash with Faster Casting and Second Wind. Auras used are Wrath, Discipline, and Clarity. Cast When Damage Taken linked with Immortal Call and Increased Duration will provide extra survivability.
Gem, Gear and Flask
Gem: The character uses Spark as their skill, so using the correct setup of POE gems is important. For this build, you should use: Spark, Fire Penetration, Faster Casting, Hypothermia, Elemental Focus, and Controlled Destruction.
Gear: You should use Doriani's Prototype, which equals infinity damage, Aegis Aurora, which provides infinity defense, and Tailwind Elusive Boots, which gives infinity speed. Blue Nightmare, which gives 8 spell blocks; Torrances Reclamation, which gives 10 action speeds. And a Writing Jar with Replenishing Remedies and Trader Keystone gives flash charges based on empty flasks.
Flask: You should use a Seething Divine Life Flask, a Cinderswallow Urn, a Chemist's Quicksilver Flask of Heat, a Chemist's Sulphur Flask of Warding, and a Witchfire Brew.
The play style for this build is fairly straightforward. Use Spark to clear packs and deal great single-target damage. Flame Dash can be used for mobility, and the auras should always be up. Cast When Damage Taken linked with Immortal Call and Increased Duration will provide extra survivability, and the flasks should be used as needed. The character should be able to handle all content, but some bosses may take longer to kill than others.
The Violence Variant, Spark Guardian build, is powerful and can clear all content. However, it requires a significant investment and can quickly become a grind. Determining if this is how you want to play Path of Exile before investing in the build is important.
