In Path of Exile, if you would like to try group play for the upcoming flashback league with your friends, but none of you have any experience with group play.
Unlike poe currency purchase, should you then have one focused on AoE and one on bossing? Like a KB wander and a Molten Striker or BF or something? Is there better synergies that I’m not familiar with? If you want to have more overall concepts, I hope the following guide can help you.
The go-to Classic is Aura-Guardian, Curse-Champion/Occultist, and a DPS. Some cool off meta ideas:
1st Character is an ailment-bot
Elementalist with Yoke of Suffering (enemies take 5% more damage per ailment) maximizing shock effectiveness and chilling/igniting. Also wearing 2x Dyadus to apply a 200% more burning damage when you chill. Cool points if you can bleed/poison as well, for even more damage. This type of support will effectively give 3x damage to the below build.
2nd Character is all burning damage
Either RF, Scorching Ray, ignite, whatever. They will get 200% more burning from their Elementalist support, on top of whatever their Yoke provides. Since the above Elementalist is also shocking/chilling/etc, an Autobomber-type character would be easily sustainable to continue Herald of Thunder chains. Herald of Thunder + Stormfire could be pretty slick here. Also The Taming will be good due to all of the ailments.
3rd Character could be an Occultist
Providing really strong Flammability/Conductivity/Frostbite and Ele Weakness, whatever you want. As for DPS, they can use Flame Surge, since it will get 50% more damage against burning targets (everything burns). Everyone gets to contribute in this type of party rather than just 2 aura whores just standing there.
You will pose a tremendous challenge if you aren’t prepared, therefore, it is important for you to read the above article completely.
