Other POE Blight Ascendancy Changes

Other than Necromancer, Saboteur and Assassin, there are different degrees of changes made to POE 3.8 Blight Guardian, Hierophant, Elementalist, Raider, Occultist, Chieftain, Berserker, Slayer, Trickster and Ascendant. 

- POE 3.8 Guardian: he no longer grants specific bonuses to Herald of Purity and Dominating Blow minions, and have built the Crusade Slam effect into the minions themselves.

- POE 3.8 Hierophant: the mana path has changed, it should be more offensively powerful for a character with heavy mana investment now, with its defensive power slightly reduced.

- POE 3.8 Elementalist: Golem path has adjusted, providing much more power to the player on an invested Golem character, while no longer being the only way for a character to get additional golems outside of unique items thanks to a new Golem cluster on the passive tree. It should be a more desirable path for builds that don't rely entirely on their minions as a result. Beacon of Ruin now grants increased effect of non-damaging ailments, to improve its overall power.

- POE 3.8 Raider: more numerical improvements and one additional aura mechanic, which makes it more competitive.

- POE 3.8 Occultist: Vile Bastion now also grants 40 energy shield regenerated per second at all times, granting more reliable recovery, especially at lower levels.

- POE 3.8 Chieftain: provides +25% to Fire Damage Over Time Multiplier instead of 15% more Burning Damage, providing more power for Burning characters unless they're very heavily invested in Damage over Time Multiplier.

- POE 3.8 Berserker: Crave the Slaughter no longer grants a chance to deal Double Damage, with this bonus being moved to War Bringer if you've used a Warcry in the past 8 seconds. Flawless Savagery now grants a lower value of Critical Strike Chance for Attacks, and slightly less critical multiplier.

- POE 3.8 Slayer: Bane of Legends node has had the value of attack and move speed granted reduced to 10%. Overwhelm has had its Base Critical Chance lowered to 7.5%.

- POE 3.8 Trickster: the chance to evade, reduced damage taken and amount of Energy Shield recovered for Ghost Dance passive has been lowered.

- POE 3.8 Ascendant: passives related to many of the adjusted Ascendancies above changed.
