Smoother, Faster and Honestly Poe 3.7 Trickster Build with Essence Drain

By Ghazzy - Views: (10309) - Jul,15,2019

Build Summary

The choice between the two abilities comes down to personal preference, and some enjoy to cast Essence Drain and spread it by having a Contagion cast before you use ED. However, I felt that the approach of using Bane was smoother, faster, and honestly, better in all ways.

Build Description

The choice between the two abilities comes down to personal preference, and some enjoy to cast Essence Drain and spread it by having a Contagion cast before you use ED. However, I felt that the approach of using Bane was smoother, faster, and honestly, better in all ways.

Ascendancy:
1. Ghost Dance
2. Escape Artist
3. Weave the Arcane
4. Swift Killer

Pantheon:
Major God:
- Soul of Lunaris
Just helps with avoiding some projectile damage
Minor God:
- Soul of Ryslatha
Only an additional layer of defense when you're on low life.

Leveling Guides:
1. Freezing Pulse till you can equip yourself with ED/Contagion which you'll use till you get Bane then use this to level with all the way.
2. Items such as Goldrim, Lifespring, Wanderlust helps a lot to speed up the leveling process.
3. If you get a Tabula Rasa early on, you're Gucci all the way!
4. If you sell a blue rarity WAND to a vendor together with any of the chaos gems you get a +1 lvl of socketed chaos gems to wand back!

Bandits: Kill them all
