POE 3.8 Blade Flurry Assassin, Beginner's Friendly Budget

By u4npoe - Views: (446) - Sep,16,2019

Build Summary

In 3.8, my dream of a pure Phys/chaos dual-dagger Assassin was becoming a reality. The Assassin has always been my favorite Ascendancy. The Shadow lines in the acts are pure gold, compared to other classes. In particular, the new Impale gave a ton of dmg. But the Assassin was still lacking an identity of his own.

Build Description

INTRO:
In 3.8, my dream of a pure Phys/chaos dual-dagger Assassin was becoming a reality. In particular, the new Impale gave a ton of dmg. But the Assassin was still lacking an identity of his own. The Assassin has always been my favorite Ascendancy. The Shadow lines in the acts are pure gold, compared to other classes. And the Assassin is for me the most thrilling ascendancy, as it's deadly and fast. But for years, the Assassin Ascendancy had been in the purgatory of the off-meta. 

Now, in 3.8, the Assassin is becoming a true shadow killer, thanks to the Elusive buff and the reworked poison. Now we are going to kill our enemies before they even know what's coming to them. Now is the time to walk the way of the shadow. Thx GGG for making this possible.

+ Fast, versatile and fun build
+ Beginner friendly | Can be done on a budget
+ Boss killer
+ All contents viable
+ You can be invisible!
- Cannot do phys reflect maps
- Clearspeed is nice but not super-fast. We are no Winter-Orb MF farmer.
- Quite Expensive for endgame (25ex and more)
- (Not so) glass-cannon
- Struggles in Delve 350+


ASCENDANCY:


1. Mistwalker
2. Noxious Strike
