The Apostate in Path of Exile is a unique Cabalist Regalia (body armor) designed for characters who focus on Strength and physical damage. Here’s a breakdown of its stats and effects:

Focus on Strength:

  • Increased Strength: This is a significant boost to your Strength stat, which provides several benefits:
    • Increased melee physical damage
    • Increased maximum Life
    • Improved carrying capacity
    • Increased physical attack accuracy

Elemental Resilience:

  • Increased all Elemental Resistances: This provides a well-rounded defense against elemental attacks (fire, cold, and lightning) which are prevalent throughout the game.

Unique Life Gain:

  • Gain Maximum Life instead of Maximum Energy Shield from Equipped Armour Items: This is the key unique aspect of The Apostate. It converts any potential Energy Shield bonuses from other armor pieces into Life instead. This makes it ideal for characters who don’t rely on Energy Shield and solely focus on maximizing their Life pool for survivability.

Who should use The Apostate?

This body armor is particularly well-suited for the following types of characters:

  • Strength-based melee characters: Due to the high Strength increase and conversion of Energy Shield to Life, it significantly enhances their physical damage, Life pool, and survivability.
  • Some Strength-based casters: Some Strength-based casters who use close-range spells and require a good amount of Life can also benefit from The Apostate, especially if they can find alternative ways to address their mana needs.

Important Considerations:

  • The Apostate is not ideal for Energy Shield-based characters: As it converts any potential Energy Shield bonuses into Life, it becomes a wasted stat for characters who rely on Energy Shield.
  • Alternative ways to manage mana: If using The Apostate with a Strength-based caster, you’ll need to find alternative ways to manage your mana pool, such as through mana regeneration or mana flasks.

Overall, The Apostate is a powerful body armor for Strength-based melee characters and some Strength-based casters in Path of Exile, offering a combination of offensive and defensive benefits.
