POE 3.8 Venom Gyre Assassin Build Learget Starter Budget

By u4npoe - Views: (3444) - Sep,09,2019

Build Summary

This build is based around the gem Venom Gyre and we are building it by stacking elemental damage and critical strike damage. This build has been updated with the new Path of Building. If Venom Gyre feels bad we can easily switch to Cobra Lash, they are practically the same. By using Hrimsorrow's we convert the rest of our Physical Damage to Cold, and then further amplify this damage by using things that increase our cold damage such as Hatred, Herald of Ice, and gear.

Build Description

INTRO:
This build is based around the gem Venom Gyre and we are building it by stacking elemental damage and critical strike damage. This build has been updated with the new Path of Building. If Venom Gyre feels bad we can easily switch to Cobra Lash, they are practically the same. By using Hrimsorrow's we convert the rest of our Physical Damage to Cold, and then further amplify this damage by using things that increase our cold damage such as Hatred, Herald of Ice, and gear.

Elusive is still not being calculated, and it accounts for a large amount of our DPS. A few Gem Link changes like adding Fortify to our Whirling Blades and Committing to Hypothermia as our 6th/5th Link. The build is designed around Level 95, but obviously I also have a Level 100 tree just in case there are any people wilding out there. The Levelling trees are also in the Path of Building, just switch the trees at the bottom left on the app. The trees on the site will be updated shortly after League Launch.

We are going Assassin as the new Elusive buff looks beautiful, and Assassin has the Mistwalker Ascendancy Point which boosts it and adds a bunch of nice bonuses. Even with the buff decaying over time it isn't a huge issue as the moment we lose it we will get it back thanks to 100% Critical Strike Chance. I am not a huge fan of poison so I chose to scale Venom Gyre through on hit damage rather than damage over time.


PROS & CONS:
+ Elusive is an absolute Juicer for everything
+ Unique play style with Venom Gyre for clearing and bossing
+ Combo of Freezing, Good Dodge and Evasion makes you a slipperyjim
+ Fork + GMP Will give us heaps of Projectiles to catch
+ No Mana Problems
- Can't do No Leech Mods on Maps
- Unpredictable game feel, as it is a brand new gam
- Fairly low life, big balls playstyle
- Price will ramp up quick, some of the juicy end game uniques are expensive early on


ASCENDANCY:


1. Mistwalker
2. Unstable Infusion
3. Deadly Infusion
4. Opportunistic


BANDITS:
Help Alira. The Crit Multi and Resistances are just so good, helps squeeze out more damage on rings etc as you aren't as needy for Resistances. Eramir is also a good choice as Passive Points are so nice.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Lunaris or Soul of Solaris
Minor God - Soul of Shakari
