Poe Spreading Rot - Cobalt Jewel Builds
List Poe Builds With Spreading Rot - Cobalt Jewel.
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.
In POE 3.8 league, This build is like any attack hit. It's pretty low damage since it's only 50-72.8 of base damage. Lasts 1 second by default and does chaos damage over time. However! , it can be scaled with Increased Duration and Skill Effect Duration, as well as Concentrated Effect and a lot of different gems like Swift Affliction and Efficacy. Last the most interesting cause it does around 60 to 80% of our damage Explosions do area damage hits and, of the cause, scale with your weapon damage.
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.
Poe Blight is shorter ranged and thus less consistent against mobile enemies. It also requires the use of a threshold jewel to be worth using, taking a slot that would otherwise be more EHP. In exchange, it provides a stronger hinder and significant extra damage when you can apply it
This build is a budget version, estimated cost under 200 Chaos Orbs a lot of builds show an insane amount of dps which you can only sustain for 1-2 seconds in perfect condition which you can rarely ever achieve. Some build even suggest over 1 million dps budget Build and with over 20 as invested you can hardly hit over 100k (hank the tank for example)
