2.5 UPDATE. THE BUILD TOOK SOME HEAVY BLOWS.

JK
WE STILL DESTROY EVERYTHING.


2.5 changes


Read carefully please. I get alot of questions that are answered simply by reading through every part of the guide.

The build took heavy blows to charge generation through bladevortex mechanics and also a nerf to malice proc rate which used to be 100ms which is now 250ms. This is not as bad as people think because discharging with full charges > many small discharges.

This is certainly a nerf to the build but i've been able to clear all maps with both assassin version and trickster.

To combat these changes we now discharge in our 6 link chest on assassin to squeeze out that little bit extra damage for single target.

3B3G is now the new volls prot desired colors with a 30% chance to not consume charges helmet. This is about on par if not slightly higher dps in a long fight than Coc/Bv/Pcoc. The colors are also easier to get.

I only recommend this with a 30% chance to not consume charges helmet enchant, because these discharges often occur around the same time, the second discharge wouldn't have many charges to discharge. 30% of the time you will get a double discharge essentially.

If you don't have this helmet use:

Cyclone/AA/Inc Crit/Coc/Bv/Pcoc
or
Cyclone/AA/Inc Crit/Coc/Bv/Fortify

Use 3 dps gems in malice. You can still use Life Leech if you're scared/new to the build. You should be able to keep up vinktar 24/7 whilst mapping.

Pathfinder has been replaced by trickster. (RIP)

Most of the gear is the same besides some of the main links. Trickster uses different links than assassin so beware.

Thank you all, and enjoy.






Intro

This build is basically the old fakener that doesn't wear a vagan dagger. We simply wear a Cospris Malice instead.

My goal with this build was to get as close to the old fakener clearspeed while keeping this build as consistent as possible with huge single target damage, insane shield charge speed and crazy leech!

I have tested multiple variations of this build and looked at other guides and concluded they werent optimal for what is suitable for me. If you like insane clearspeed and prioritize it, then you have come to the right place.

Here is my version.



Ascendancy/Passive Tree/Bandits


Assassin


Assassin is the best Ascendancy in terms of consistency and reliability and gives the best damage output out of all Ascendancy choices in most cases
pIv6ViI
Why is Assassin your preferred choice?

+Consistent crit
+Crit multi
+16% MORE Attack Speed Gloves
+More ES

Trickster


Trickster wins when it comes to survivability and cheap playstyle, we don't have to worry about mana meaning no elreon rings and no reservation stuff needed, hardcore players should consider trickster before assassin. Trickster also doesn't need a 6 link as badly as assassin.

Also note that trickster playstyle is different to assassin, you will have to cyclone more on packs instead of relying on pure shield charge to proc discharge.



tRMXfv6

What we sacrifice and gain:

-Loose Consistent Shield charge clear
-Loose Crit Multi
-Loose 16% MORE attack speed gloves (kind of evens out)
-Loose Single Target DPS

+Gain Tankyness
+Gain ES
+Gain Higher clearability of content to money spent

Bandits


Normal: Kill all bandits.
Cruel: Help Kraityn.
Merciless: Help Oak. (Help Alira if you have a +1 End charge belt & Death's door.)





Flasks


Vinktars is very necessary, we are unkillable during it aslong as we are doing damage, it's a huge ele reflect immunity flask aswell as tons of leech and +6 max lightning res. (Do not use a lightning damage to attack vinktars!)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Rumis is our general survivability flask. It's just an OP flask which adds block & spell block and 3000 armor.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Diamond flask to make sure we're crit capped. (If you don't roll a crit when diamond flask is up, you roll again.)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Quicksilver for movespeed (when it is uncomfortable to shield charge)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Silver flask provides onslaught (20% atk & movespeed.)

_____________________________________________________________________________

(Optional) (Adds max res and helps with clearspeed, replace rumis/quicksilver)

_____________________________________________________________________________

(Optional) (Stun, freeze, chill, curse immunity, good for shield charging around)

_____________________________________________________________________________

NOTE: These flasks are not correctly rolled with status immune rolls. You need a shock immune
if you're using vinktars, bleed flask if no deaths door, and freeze immune.

Gear


Cospri's malice- Required for obvious reasons, also requires 212 Dex. (Sigh) (ALSO SUPER CHEAP :DDDD)


_____________________________________________________________________________

Voll's Protector- Duh. Get atleast a 5 link.


_____________________________________________________________________________

Voll's Devotion- Your GG BIS endgame amulet (THEY ARE SUPER CHEAP THIS LEAGUE!! :DD) You can survive without one until Tier10+.


_____________________________________________________________________________

Atleast 2 -7 Elreon Rings and +2 mana gained on hit jewel- Required for sustaining skills, jewel for sustaining cyclone (assassin only)





Trickster example:

_____________________________________________________________________________

Gloves

(Attack speed essence for Assassin) The 16% more attack speed with Shield Charge makes your clear speed insane, you should look for high es/res/dex/accuracy/atk speed in this order. (16% more attack/cast speed is achieved with an Essence of Insanity)

_____________________________________________________________________________

(Crit Strike essece for Trickster) The 3.5% increased base crit is necessary for Trickster's cyclone to be consistent. This is achieved with an Essence of Horror)

Note: You can use these gloves as an assassin aswell, replace crit strikes gem with fortify. This is a safer setup but less attack speed. (colors hard to get)
(Ignore the gems)
_____________________________________________________________________________

Belt
+1 endurance charge is a nice damage+survivabilty boost, you should look for es/resists/flask mods in this order.



If you got one

_____________________________________________________________________________

Boots
Deaths door provide bleed immunity, ES, Strength, Movespeed and All res.

Get life leech enchant here or stun immune enchant.

Normal ES boots example:

_____________________________________________________________________________

Helmet
30% chance to not consume charges is the best enchant. Just Resistances and ES.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Shield
Just get Resistances and ES here. Spell Crit or Spell Damage is a Luxury.

Is the same exact setup considered viable for HC aswell? I've seen ppl go pathfinder cause flasks are so strong etc. What's our opinion on that in comparison to Assassin?
Looks strong. Looks exactly the same as the old baked chicken build in terms of clearspeed. I think I'm gonna try to roll this next.

Pathfinder is my next test. Crit chance will be the issue, i'll be trying the cyclone setup in a +3 crit chance gloves and shield charge in the 6 link paired with coc - bv. There's a chance pathfinder might have to run assasin's mark aswell. If you test this, let me know. The build is also most definitely hc viable. 95% of my deaths are whilst I was graveyard zerging cruel malachai with 700 hp because I was too lazy to upgrade my gear.

I think the streamer "Karvarouskugaming" is doing this exact build as pathfinder and by the looks of it your build seems way more consistent in terms of crit/dmg tbh. Idk I guess you could check some old VODS to get a rough idea of how it works but more often than not I See him whirling and not proccing discharge for what seems a dangerously long time seeing as that is one of the biggest issues with the build when it lacks crit, you can just whirl into a pack and not procc discharge and just get stomped.
voll's prices are gonna go back up.. im glad i bought one like a few hours of seeing your thread/vid. thank you.
Its really painful to have a 5g or even 4g voll :(

Yes :(

I added a few other options for links if you can't hit 4G.

Thanks for the post. Inspired me to start making a tri curse occultist version.

Tree may need some more work, trying to meet that 212 dex requirement =/

I am thinking poacher's mark will help with accuracy by cutting their evasion and the flask charge gained will allow you to spam flasks, also gets you some frenzy charges

Assassin mark to get more crit chance

warlords mark for mana and life leach, letting me drop life leach gem in favor of something else.

Prob will need a pair of those crit gloves to offset the base crit loss from assassin. Occultist also has some nice defensive tools built in too.
