Path of Building

Welcome to Path of Building, an offline build planner for Path of Exile!


  • Comprehensive offence + defence calculations:
    • Calculate your skill DPS, damage over time, life/mana/ES totals and much more!
    • Can factor in auras, buffs, charges, curses, monster resistances and more, to estimate your effective DPS
    • Also calculates life/mana reservations
    • Shows a summary of character stats in the side bar, as well as a detailed calculations breakdown tab which can show you how the stats were derived
    • Supports all skills and support gems, and most passives and item modifiers
      • Throughout the program, supported modifiers will show in blue and unsupported ones in red
    • Full support for minions
  • Passive skill tree planner:
    • Support for jewels including most radius/conversion jewels
    • Features alternate path tracing (mouse over a sequence of nodes while holding shift, then click to allocate them all)
    • Fully intergrated with the offence/defence calculations; see exactly how each node will affect your character!
    • Can import PathOfExile.com and PoEPlanner.com passive tree links; links shortened with PoEURL.com also work
  • Skill planner:
    • Add any number of main or supporting skills to your build
    • Supporting skills (auras, curses, buffs) can be toggled on and off
    • Automatically applies Socketed Gem modifiers from the item a skill is socketed into
    • Automatically applies support gems granted by items
  • Item planner:
    • Add items from in game by copying and pasting them straight into the program!
    • Automatically adds quality to non-corrupted items
    • Fully intergrated with the offence/defence calculations; see exactly how much of an upgrade a given item is!
    • Contains a searchable database of all uniques that are currently in game (and some that aren't yet!)
      • You can choose the modifier rolls when you add a unique to your build
      • Includes all league-specific items and legacy variants
    • Features an item crafting system:
      • You can select from any of the game's base item types
      • You can select prefix/suffix modifiers from lists
      • Custom modifiers can be added, with Master and Essence modifiers available
    • Also contains a database of rare item templates:
      • Allows you to create rare items for your build to approximate the gear you will be using
      • Choose which modifiers appear on each item, and the rolls for each modifier, to suit your needs
      • Has templates that should cover the majority of builds (inb4 'why is there no coral amulet?')
  • Other features:
    • You can import passive tree, items, and skills from existing characters
    • Share builds with other users by generating a share code
    • Automatic updating; most updates will only take a couple of seconds to apply
    • Somewhat more open source than usual (look in %ProgramData%\Path of Building if you're interested)
