POE 3.8 Ultimate Poison Venom Gyre Pathfinder Build

By u4npoe - Views: (589) - Sep,20,2019

Build Summary

First I want to say that build is heavily inspired by Mathil's Viper Strike build from 3.7 leagues. I liked it very much and wanted to push it to the next level. If you liked Mathil's poison build, wanna run like a maniac and clear like an autobomber but also delete bosses you will like this even more because it has 2x damage with superior defenses. On top of that, it's ranged. He did a great job by scaling that build the right way. I didn't publish my guide for Viper Strike because making mandatory 2 gem swaps was too much hassle.

Build Description

INTRO:
First I want to say that build is heavily inspired by Mathil's Viper Strike build from 3.7 leagues. I liked it very much and wanted to push it to the next level. He did a great job by scaling that build the right way. I didn't publish my guide for Viper Strike because making mandatory 2 gem swaps was too much hassle.

If you liked Mathil's poison build, wanna run like a maniac and clear like an autobomber but also delete bosses you will like this even more because it has 2x damage with superior defenses. On top of that, it's ranged. It can easily be converted to Pestilent Strike or Viper Strike with some gem swaps, but I think that Venom Gyre or Cobra Lash are superior to them by a large margin with Pathfinder. Now we have a perfect skill, Venom Gyre.

It is an attack build based on a fossil crafted claws and Venom Gyre ranged/projectile poison skill that is introduced in 3.8 Blight league, but it can work with 1c Wasp Nest claws.

Please read the full guide before starting the build. For any feedback, questions or help with the build, leave a comment on this thread.
Wish you many fun hours of play.
