POE 3.10 Caustic Arrow CI Trickster Build - League Starter Friendly Budget

By u4npoe - Views: (1746) - Mar,09,2020

Build Summary

This development grew out of my frustrations with 3.10. Even though Caustic Arrow is arguable a "bow" skill, I was fairly miffed that the middle-investment Elemental Bow builds have largely gone extinct due to a heavy-handed series of adjustments from GGG. Though I hope they soften the changes in an upcoming patch, I still wanted to create a bow for more bosses capable of all content material in this league. Trickster is and probably will stay my preferred ascendancy. I wanted to again augment its underlying strengths.

Build Description

INTRO:

This development grew out of my frustrations with 3.10. Even though Caustic Arrow is arguable a  "bow" skill, I was fairly miffed that the middle-investment Elemental Bow builds have largely gone extinct due to a heavy-handed series of adjustments from GGG. Though I hope they soften the changes in an upcoming patch, I still wanted to create a bow for more bosses capable of all content material in this league. Trickster is and probably will stay my preferred ascendancy. I wanted to again augment its underlying strengths. I had by no means attempted Caustic Arrow aside from applying it till level 12 once you can then acquire Toxic Rain. In 3.10 CA got a little of a buff to its numbers, so I was feeling a bit curious.

This can be not going to become the highest damage Caustic Arrow make. I genuinely tried to create what I believe can be a well-rounded balance of Offense and Defense. If you would like much more damage, it is possible to strip away a few of the defenses and go for it. Wicked Ward shines in this build, and is augmented by a very low recharge delay, and higher recharge price. While successive strong blows can nevertheless kill you, acquiring clipped here and thereby the odd attack will not be significant to worry about.

 

 

PROS & CONS:

+ Bosser - Has cleared all boss content including Awakener 8, Conquerors, Uber Elder, Shaper, Shaper/Elder Guardians, Uber Atziri, Cortex, all Distant Memories, and a handful of non-ridiculous delve bosses.

+ Xtra Thicc - Has 10k ES with the ability to have even more with better optimized gear, in addition to Wicked Ward with a recharge delay of just 0.95 seconds and a recharge rate of 10,301 in my current gear. On top of all of this, you have replenishment from Ghost Shrouds as well!

+ Fun Mapping - The Phys Pops from Asenath’s Gentle Touch make for fun mapping and respectful clear. It’s just a matter of shoot, pop, shoot, pop, shoot, pop.

+ Chaos Inoculation - Chaos damage? What chaos damage?

- Attribute Starved - Need to invest some points into attributes on the tree, in addition to grabbing certain bases and picking it up on jewelry as you can.

- Stun Immunity is Conditional - If you deplete your Ghost Shrouds, you lose your stun immunity, and that can lead to some trouble. You will need to learn to keep an eye on the buff, and back away from danger if the icon is missing.
