POE 3.10 Assassin Friendly Budget - Earthquake, League Starter Build

By u4npoe - Views: (1081) - Mar,09,2020

Build Summary

Hello everybody, Thank you for taking the time to look through our build guide. The job of this build is to reliably stack poisons on enemies from a distance while building up withered stacks and Blinding enemies. This build is intended to be part of a poison scaling duo build. The counterpart build can be found by clicking the various links spaced out through the guide or at the link above. I plan to begin as a dodge based cobra lash assassin. I’ll be running a setup that doesn’t seem optimal but when paired with its partner build becomes much more powerful.

Build Description

INTRO:

Hello everybody, Thank you for taking the time to look through our build guide. The job of this build is to reliably stack poisons on enemies from a distance while building up withered stacks and Blinding enemies. This build is intended to be part of a poison scaling duo build. The counterpart build can be found by clicking the various links spaced out through the guide or at the link above. I plan to begin as a dodge based cobra lash assassin. I'll be running a setup that doesn't seem optimal but when paired with its partner build becomes much more powerful. My partner will run a poison proliferating viper strike pathfinder using the Growing Agony jewel to profit from our combined poison stacks. It may seem odd but the highest dps and best duo scaling option is an Ancestral Protector Enchant which helps crank up our attack speed. We then support our totem with Withering Touch and melee splash to reliably crank up the Withered Stacks and apply a few more poisons. We also support our Herald of Agony Crawler with Withering Touch to help keep enemies reliably capped. Builds are mainly designed for softcore leagues but can very easily be adapted to hardcore. 

This build is about stacking as many poison stacks as possible for our partner. We use Frenzy Charges, Onslaught, Elusive, and a flask of acceleration to keep our attack speed high. With a solid poison duration, this means we can burst and kite things out while they die. When playing together your partner will always be in front of you keeping enemies focused on them while you stack poison from a distance. Each stack of poison we put on an enemy increases our partner's damage on that enemy with a viper strike. Chains from cobra lash allow us to make sure that our attacks are getting through to the bigger enemies that need the damage boost as most smaller enemies will be instantly cleared from the screen.

+ Cheap to get rolling

+ Fast clear with Plague Bearer
