Poe Withering Step Builds
List Poe Builds With Withering Step.
Poe Toxic Rain is an attack skill where the user fires multiple arrows in the air, which land and drop spores, dealing with chaos damage. This Build takes on a Toxic Rain based Trickster, which focuses on damage output through the Plague Bearer gem. The original concept of the Build was to utilize plague bearer AND Death's oath armor aura. However, Death's oath aura provided so little damage, and it became much more valuable to get the extra HP. Also, plague bearer melts all mobs instantly while mapping anyways.
This Build uses at league starts until you get your gear up and running for Icicle. The clear on Pyro is sub-par, but the single target is second to none, and it will help you get over the boss hump early on. Pyroclast Mine > Trap and Mine Support > Swift Assembly > Conc Effect > Combustion > Fire Pen. Early on, you may want to use Pyroclast mine as your boss killer and then swap out full-time for Icicle once you have the damage.
Pestilent Strike is the best melee skill in the game atm. For Pestilent Strike is an actual melee name locking Skill that has secondary debuff similar to the Infernal Blow, which explodes enemies and deals secondary chaos damage to the surrounding enemies based on the amount of poison damage that primary had on itself. This and Pathfinder's poison proliferation will result in a chain reaction that can wipe out whole lanes of monsters and bosses caught in it
Poe Caustic Arrow is a bow attack that fires an arrow dealing with chaos damage and spreading caustic ground. Trickster also has some enormous DoT damage boost in the Ascendancy, which works well with CA. All these combined results in probably the safest character we ever played with moderate single target damage and impressive apparent speed.
with this build, you will be leveling with Toxic Rain as it is super smooth. After leveling, you can switch to Scourge Arrow. Important! The gems we are using for Toxic Rain leveling are not all the same as we will be using after we migrate to Scourge Arrow. Check the end of the Gem Progression section for details.
This build feels really good. In Path of Exile 3.9, Scourge Arrow's base weapon damage has been lowered, but the skill now deals added Chaos Damage that grows as the gem levels. The skill was often used with builds adding elemental damage, so this change is intended to give it a greater reward to Chaos damage based builds while also improving its usability while leveling.
This guide will cover the basics of cyclone dual-wielding paradoxical and using the impale mechanic. This build should be very cheap in 3.9 with everyone playing Bow/Wand and to a lesser extent Necro. The only problematic point might be getting a watcher's eye with Impale. I will league start this build and probably try Assassin/Raider to be safe.
This is a beginner-friendly, league-starter viable, solo-self-found viable, and comprehensive Leap Slam Inquisitor guide. The leveling section in this guide is meant to take players with a fresh install or in a fresh league and get them into maps and started on a powerful character. Interested readers can find gear priority, stat suggestions, mechanics explanations, and a whole bunch of links that might be useful for newer players. But also not be lacking in other aspects of the game and also not be a meta one, so it will be cheaper to do.
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.
This build is designed to run fast and clear maps safely. It summons storm brands that shock, freeze and trigger our herald to clear massive packs of mobs both on-screen and off. With Brand Recall we can pull the brands with us to a new screen, clear it AND extend the duration of the brands themselves. It has good single target for map bosses because if 2 brands attach themselves to the same target, it increases the damage each brand does by 50% more damage.
POE 3.8 Popular Build - Scourge Arrow Poison Prolif Pathfinder, Fast, Tanky, Easy Beginner - Friendly
In 3.8 poison builds received massive buffs on the tree, at present one particular of the very best bows for this make received enormous buff too. Scourge Arrow was buffed too so now it, in fact, feels fantastic to play even in closed regions. Mainly due to Nature's Reprisal great poison proliferation. It solves a lot of problems that Scourge Arrow has, and that is having to charge to deal good damage, having issues with struggler monsters near walls and having issues with outputting damage consistently.
This is a specter summoner build that focuses on having a small team of super-strong minions. It is a cheap league starter that excels at boss killing while also having good survivability and map clearing speed. The build focuses on Slave Driver specters. It uses equipment you can pick up or buy for cheap and can clear Uber Elder with a modest budget. It includes a detailed leveling guide, a detailed breakdown on gear/items/gems, basic crafting guides and a list of alternate specters.
