Forbidden Sanctums in the Ancestors League Trial Ultimate Guide
There’s something really intriguing about the Forbidden Sanctums in Path of Exile. With the fresh updates in version 3.22, it’s now more thrilling than ever to explore them. The devs at GGG have rolled out quite a few notable tweaks. One highlight? The introduction of the Forbidden Tome item. These can be sold and traded, and they not only represent the Sanctum but also show how far a player has progressed inside.
Understanding the Challenges and New Tactics
Among the big shifts you’ll notice? The uptick in challenge as you get to the higher floors. More Boons and Afflictions are now in the mix, so each Sanctum visit feels distinct and tests your skills. Plus, you’ve got Resolve to think about, which can now be defended using primary defenses. This throws an exciting twist into the strategy game.
Grasping Resolve and Why Distance Matters
If you’ve never been inside a Sanctum, here’s the deal. They’re like isolated dungeons where you pile up Resolve. But here’s the catch: any hit from a creepy creature or misstep? Your Resolve dips. If it bottoms out, you’re toast, and your Sanctum adventure stops. So, while you’re in there, you’ve got to pick your path wisely. Why? Because each room has its own Affliction. Some can be a real pain. So having multiple exits to choose from in a room can be a lifesaver.
Key Strategies and Top Builds to Consider
Keeping your Resolve in check is a biggie. Once it drops, getting it back up isn’t a walk in the park. So, dodge those blows instead of just soaking them up. If you’re picking a build, one that leans on ranged attacks is smart. You can hit without getting hit. And yes, Sanctums can be tough cookies at first. But don’t sweat it. If you mess up, getting another Forbidden Tome for a redo is no biggie.
Builds and Tactics for Success
Here’s a golden nugget: rushing through Sanctums without sizing up the pace of monsters and traps? Not the best idea. Your best bet? Builds that put the brakes on foes. This way, you’ve got more control over what happens in those eerie dungeons. Want to nail the Forbidden Sanctums? Your build choice is vital. With the 3.22 tweaks, here’s a juicy list to help you win in the Trial of the Ancestors:

If you roll with these tips and the builds we’ve dished out, you’re on track to ace the Forbidden Sanctums. And who knows what awesome stuff you’ll discover inside?
How to Pivot with Other Builds
With the new patch, some favorites like Spark and Tornado Shot aren’t as hot. They won’t hit enemies that are off the screen. But all’s not lost. Some builds are still solid gold. Take Cold damage over time (DoT) builds. Both Cold DoT Occultist and Elementalist are on fire. With the Occultist’s Frigid Wake, enemies hit softer, so loads of players are digging it. But if you’re just starting out or leveling up, Elementalist is your best pal.
For a more versatile touch, check out the Rain of Arrows Champion build. It’s killer for both wide-area and single-target damage. And to jack up its power? Slap on a Tattoo of the Ramako Makanga from the Trial of the Ancestors’ tattoos. This nifty add-on sprays extra projectiles near a tiny Dexterity node.
And a heads-up on Righteous Fire builds: they’re fab for the league mechanic, but they might wobble in the Sanctum because they’re a bit soft on defense. But totem builds? Gold. Especially with those pesky fireballs in Find Exit Sanctum rooms. The totems can shield you.
Where the Explosive Arrow Ballistas Build Fits In
Now, if there’s a build that’s turning heads in version 3.22, it’s the Explosive Arrow Ballistas. What’s cool about it? It’s a totem-based build. So you plant turrets that deal the blows, while you duck and dodge. It’s not only effective but also won’t break the bank. So, you can jump into everything Path of Exile throws at you without burning through heaps of Divine Orbs.
