The Surrender PoE Build & Price – Ezomyte Tower Shield

The Surrender The Surrender is a unique Ezomyte Tower Shield. Requires Level 64, 159 Str. This unique shield was introduced from Path of Exile 2.5.0: Breach League.

It's pretty wacky with face breakers. You have max block with glad and a lot of damage from the level 30 reckoning. It is a very easy build to get off the ground and it can do pretty much everything minus legion (you need vaal breach to proc the counter attack)

Modifiers

The Surrender The Surrender grants level 30 Reckoning Reckoning. Equipping the shield while using the Necromantic Aegis Keystone will not grant the Reckoningskill to minions, not even to spectres, that are able to use Shield Charge Shield Charge or Animate Guardian Animate Guardian, who are equipped with a shield.

Experiment with The Surrender shield and Minions

I decided to purchase The Surrender, Ezomyte Tower Shield and try to see if the Level 30 Reckoninginteracts with any of the minions (Animate Guardian, Charge Spectres, Zombies)

My gear:

Skullhead : Minion 10% block

Umbilicus with Rumi : for Minion Block

The Surrender : Level 30 Reckoning / 250life recover on block /

Necromantic Aegis Node : to grant shield bonuses to minions

Before starting the experiment, I noticed that even with Necromantic Aegis, I had the level 30 reckoning skill available in my skill bar. I knew this wasn't gonna work. But I did all the testing anyways.

First : Animate Guardian

My Guardian was equipped with a white shield w/ block chance.

Block animations do not show on my Animate Guardian. He has atleast 50% chance to block attacks, but did not see him perform any block animations nor the reckoning skill cast off from blocking. But his hp did increase time to time (I'm assuming its the 250hp recovery from blocking).

Second : Charge Spectres

I used Raise Spectre on Charge Rhoas and Charge Blackguard Elites since they are able to use shield charges (I'm assuming they are treated as if they have shields). Showed same patterns like Animate Guardian, recovered hp now and then but did not show any sign of blocking animations nor reckoning being used.

Third : Zombies

I know zombies don't have shields, but because they have block, I wanted to check if they had some sort of block animations. Sadly, no block animations were seen but hp recovery was there on block.

Conclusion: Necromantic Aegis grants the minions bonuses from the shields, which I think excludes any skill granting and other special attributes. This explains why I had Level 30 Reckoning on my skill bar. Also minions do not have block animations, but effects that occur on blocks are all there.

tldr: The Surrender's level 30 Reckoning is not applied to the minions.

Gladiator Cyclone + The surrender

Hey, lvl91 in private league with +40% more life and +10% increased damage, SSF. I do not have access to a surrender so I got a generic life on block shield. With the anvil you can achieve 82% block/spell block.

I multimodded a 360pdps axe for RT bleed as I initially planned to go lacerate bleed. It was really good and enjoyable. A bit of mana issue but enduring mana flask does it.

If I was to do it again, I would go sword+shield and go Crit. Taking out bleed of the tree gives place for more life. I would also invest in chaos res as I only wear yellows and awekener deals a metric ton of it. While mapping, Bleed pop is nice so if you can get some haemophilia gloves you'll like it.

Note that you want all 3 ascendency of block + challenger charges. Also note that normal max block is kinda meh, it is really the spell block that makes you unkillable in packs and metamorph. Only thing that kills you are big big hits like awekener fight.

I am a big fan of soul tether as it gives effective HP too.

Lastly, I am still unsure about impale, as it requires investment in tree. So I would go without first, pulverise is cheap and good replacement.
