I tend to hit a wall around lvl 90-91 where my dying outpaces my leveling.  Even post 85, I have to start playing less recklessly to avoid starting to bleed out. I can spend a day on the same level if I'm trying stuff I'm inherently bad at.

Shock nova inquis beat elder. My first elder kill. Took two attempts. Some of those move telegraphs are really hard to see and can be too short for old man reflexes.

I'm following this guide as a Summoner. Really well put together guide, enjoying it so far, I'm just about to hit 50.

Currently running this build:

https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2081371

It's a frost blades raider. I guess raider is the new old berserker as it's considered pretty weak, but this build does pretty well. My HP/effective HP is a little low (5k), so I am prone to one shots. However, you have a ton of attack dodge and spell dodge, so you can facetank a little. Really nice DPS. Nice clear speed. It's a fun play style; dashing around with whirling blades and just stabbing things at hyper speed. I can speed clear tier 15/16 like it's a tier 5 or 6. Anything under tier 14 feels like a tier 2. Additionally, I've finally started to delve. Only down to level 107 right now, but it seems pretty good for this content.

Only really downsides are the one shots and that I'm at a point where any and all upgrades are going to be 6 exalts at the low end. I got lucky in that my amulet was a drop on my first Tul run and saved me 2.5 exalts right there. Need to badly update my claw and snag some other updates so my gearing isn't so damn awkward for stats and resists. A better Lethal Pride jewel (fuck buying this randomness) and maybe a more optimal Watcher's Eye (+cold damage with Hatred) would be nice, but are ultimately luxuries.

I probably stick with this character until there's some sort of race or until the end of the league for some deeper delving and/or uber elder kill. Leveling to 100 is out of the picture. I die too damn much.

I started working on the Slave Driver Summoner build that was posted here but I may have bitten off more than I can chew.

I haven't done a summoner in PoE since release. This time, feels more powerful, however I'm following the build where it is not purely zookeeping.

Maybe I should be investigating how to get my lightning witch able to do T4 maps but ....

What part did you not figure out. All you're doing is casting the minion summoning spell constantly. I personally always try a sinking build and get bored fast.

RF + Death's Oath build is fun, and got me to 90 and t15 maps, but unless it's hit a wall unless I start buying rares to kick the life from 8k to 10k.

It was fun, and totally relaxed playstyle. Lots of flask use, but minimal skill use.

Finally beat Shaper. Drops a Starforge on my first kill.  DRILLING AND MANLINESS Then I manage to 6 link it in around only 50 fusings. So, now the question is: twink slayer/zerker or just cash in the 8 exalts and see if I can do something more nutty with this frost blade raider? Nice to actually accomplish my goal for this league.

I understand what needs to be done but I'm not sure I'm going to really be into grabbing the specific specters beforehand. I'm really into simplicity these days, no more La Pucelle Tactics or Disgaea for me.

Looks like I'm too bad to actually beat uber Elder. That's way too much shit on the screen for me to keep track of. Plus, life is probably too low. Anything that hits me is a goddamn one-shot.

On to the next league I think. It'll be interesting playing whatever comes after this one. It'll be hard to top the loot pinata with decent/option content you can engage with. Of course, I should probably do something with all of this damn currency.

Not sure I feel like taking up my charger dash leveling again. Though it's been fun I didn't even hit lvl 60.

I'm not impressed. We'll see.

I do like the idea of a Necro update though. I always try to play a summoner and end up quitting. Should be interesting. If minions have better AI or are better controlled then it might be entertaining. Otherwise it's like now where you're just running around with a swarm hoping shit dies.

Dunno, better than some overly complex, end-game focused crafting bullshit, which I was expecting their next league to be. The oil stuff should be all mapped out in a few hours.

Some of the QoL changes seem pretty nice. Sucks that I'll be traveling on business the first week or two it's out.

Maybe I'll finally level up that SRS build I've been stalling out on every league.

All the oil combinations will be displayed in game so they aren't a mystery. You can actually see what the result will be before you click the button.

No more synthesis shit. Fuck that league. I noped out of that one in a few days. I never bothered to understand it.

Necros are too good now in my opinion at least for the 10 acts. All I need to do is cast more skeletons every now and then (and maybe a raging spirit spelltotem on bosses and bone armor when I tend to get hit like in trials).
As for the tower defense it's just easy loot especially with aggressive minions.

I'm doing a crit poison assassin. It's fun so far. Got to act 6 over the limited time I had this weekend. Back to Houston for the week. Yay.

The tower defense is OK. I think the new NPC is hilarious and the rewards are good. There are some hitches in the mechanic, however, with ranged creeps hitting the pump from just where ever they want, completely bypassing the whole point of the pathing. I can see how totems or minions would be a cakewalk, but tossing a projectile has required a little bit of effort, and I can lose some of them pretty spectacularly. Also, it's visually messy and really difficult for color blind folks to just see what's going on. Dark stuff moving on a green background is really rough for me.

Got an exalt. At least it'll go up in value before I get to play again.  awesome, for real Plus for the third league in a row, I've gotten an act 2 tabula drop.  Heart

Tower defense is my favorite league mechanic since at least Delve, but then I like tower defense in any context. Mines are sort of broken for leveling; I was insta-phasing Kitava with a GMP Ice Spear Mine setup. Still too clunky for me in maps though.

Then I rerolled an Infernal Blow Champion. It is melee and therefore bad, but gibbing entire lanes of Blight mobs with %-life damage is amusing.

Had a Goldrim, Tabula, and Facebreakers all drop in act 2. Great, except worst possible Facebreakers at 600, so they're in the guild bank for someone else to use/fix.
