Poe 3.21 Very Tanky Impending Doom Pathfinder Build



  • Strong single-target and AoE damage
  • Very tanky, with full spell suppression and elemental damage conversion
  • Can handle most content in the game
  • No need to worry about elemental resistances on gear



  • Weak against damage over time (DoT) effects
  • Requires significant investment, making it less beginner-friendly
  • Can't run all map mods (e.g., reduced curse effect, no regen)




Required Uniques:

  • - Vixen's Entrapment: allows us to trigger socketed spells when we use a curse skill, increasing our curse limit to 3
  • - Lightning Coil: provides 50% physical damage taken as lightning damage, and pairs well with Topaz, Sapphire, and Ruby flasks for further elemental damage conversion
  • - Taste of Hate: reduces cold damage taken and converts 15% physical damage taken as cold damage
  • - Watcher's Eye: provides numerous benefits while affected by specific auras, such as physical damage taken as an element, spell suppression, and bleed immunity
  • - Spell-based weapon, such as Cane of Kulemak: look for increased chaos damage with skill effect, duration, and quality


Passive Skill Tree:

  • Start with the Witch or Shadow class, and prioritize nodes that increase chaos damage, curse effect, and poison damage
  • Grab the Vile Bastion cluster in the Witch area for some early defenses
  • Head towards the Shadow area for additional poison and curse effect nodes
  • Work towards the Pathfinder ascendancy, which provides numerous boosts for the build, including increased flask effect, flash charges, and elemental damage conversion
  • Allocate Whisper of Doom on the passive tree to increase curse limit to 2, and allocate Vile Intent for increased chaos damage



  • - 6-link: Impending Doom - Despair - Controlled Destruction - Efficacy - Void Manipulation - Swift Affliction
  • - Vixen's Entrapment: Temporal Chains - Enfeeble - Withering Step (or another curse of your choice)
  • - Other gems: Flame Dash (mobility), Herald of Agony (for additional poison damage), Immortal Call (for additional defense)



  • Topaz Flask: reduces lightning damage taken
  • Sapphire Flask: reduces cold damage taken
  • Ruby Flask: reduces fire damage taken
  • Quicksilver Flask: for mobility
  • Unique Flask, such as Atziri's Promise or The Wise Oak


In summary, the Impending Doom Pathfinder build is a strong option for those looking to tackle endgame content in Path of Exile. While it requires significant investment, the build provides numerous defenses and a high damage output through poison stacking. With the right gear and passives, this build can handle most content in the game.
