POE 3.8 Scourge Arrow Trickster - Fast, Powerful Changes Build

By u4npoe - Views: (504) - Sep,11,2019

Build Summary

In POE 3.8, Scourge Arrow is a very powerful skill. Like Volatile Dead and other similar abilities, its AoE damage is powerful enough there is no need for a single target as well. With the upcoming changes to Scourge Arrow’s projectiles, there will be no more annoying clipping through doorways and hallways, leaving it up to you if you’d like to add in a Rain of Arrows secondary link for clear. This build can do all content! Though not extremely impressive in Delves 500+ with patience you could hit 600 for End Game Grinds.

I started playing PoE in Harbinger league, and really love this game. I’ve started to branch off into build creation and I’m excited to share this one with you guys. Very different from my norm of minion/summoner builds, I had an absolute blast playing this and will be starting 3.7 with it as my league starter.

Like most Scourge Arrow builds, this has a top end that can get quite ridiculous, both in damage numbers and exalts, but the initial investment for the build is around 150-180C. This will get you a comfortable shaper and red elder kill, as well the more shallow delve bosses. I had to implement a bow-swap for to get my first U-Elder, but altogether that swap only adds about 40C to the build. You can stop there, or keep going as I did, and make quick, easy work out of U-Elder, Aul and the like with a nice, Fossil-Crafted Shaper Bow.


PROS & CONS:
+ Bosser - Has cleared all Boss content including Red Elder, Shaper, Uber Atziri, Uber Elder, All Delve Bosses, Mastermind and the briefly-lived Synth bosses.
+ Mapper - With the doorway fixes or perhaps a Rain of Arrows setup, this isn’t the worst mapper in the world.
+ Forgiving - Stacking dodge and evasion results in a very forgiving build. If you’re still learning the mechanics of the game, this build will allow you to learn damage patterns without being one-shot as often since you will evade or dodge most of the damage monsters do.
+ League Starter - You can start this build for around 100-120C, which is a pretty decent setup. You can also level Brands if you have a witch friend or can buy the gems which is ezpz leveling.
- Occasionally Squishy - If anything strips your defenses, you are dead considering you have about 4-4.5k life on a good day.
- Gem/Gear Swaps Required - Its not a true all-in-one character, but with some swaps it is easily done.
