How do you gain endurance charges?


With this build, you do not get endurance charges.

You'd need :
- Warlord Mark, as an aura or on a ring with "curses enemies with warlord mark on hit".
- On the skill tree, "Charging Offensive" cluster : chance to gain end charges when hit while channelling. Or "Swagger" : chance to gain on block.
- "End charges on melee stun" support in the BF setup

Some new Legion infos for the build (not recognized yet by PoB)

Timeless jewel :
I'd suggest Brutal Restraint of the Maraketh, for the +DEX bonuses.
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Brutal_Restraint
With :
- Deshret's Wind Dancer for farming. (Could be used efficiently with the Kintsugi body armour, I guess.)
or
- Asaneth's Dance with Death, if you do not feel enough glass-cannon yet :D

For a Pride Watcher's Eye, best mod is by far +2 hits for Impale. It's ~33% more damage.
Then, by decreasing order :
* (8-12)% chance to deal double damage
* +(40-60%) inc attack phys dmg
* Intimidate on hit

You can also choose the "+25% chance to impale" mod, which allows to unallocate the path to "Swift Skewering" cluster. This leaves you with 87% chance to impale and 6 points, so a lot of possibilites.

When I do have time to play, I'm enjoying this build. The dagger buffs are great for this.

Thanks for this amazing build. I was playing a poison build (viper strike/scourge arrow) and then switched to this build because it takes longer for assassin to ramp up damage for bosses compared to Pathfinder meta.

I have deleted bosses except for Phoenix which i will try today. Can you take a look at my character ( i have 1 in legion )? I am struggling with Legion. They deal too much AOE damage and I am not able to clear well. Maybe I dont understand the mechanics.

It's hard to find daggers like yours in the market. I will try crafting them.
What's your thoughts on taking Dervish?
How does poachers mark work with this build? Do I get a green slot on my ring?

thnks!

No, if you have a ring with "curse enemies with X'Mark on hit", you do not need the gem.

I've paste your char in PoB.

* Daggers : you'd feel more confortable with faster ones. You can stay in the ~300 DPS range, but aim for at least 1.7 aps, as there are a lot of "on hit" mechanics in this build. More attack speed = faster BF stacks, more poison and impale, more life and mana gained, more life on stun with Ryslatha etc.
That should help you for clearing Legions.

The rest of your stuff is very good indeed, most of all your body armour (see below for possible improvement).

* Skill tree : you may want to unallocate Weathered Hunter and Survivalist. Then, with those 6 points, get Diamond Skin for elem res and Dervish + last node on the big life cluster. This is what I have done recently.
(This also answers PrinceJudar' question : Dervish is amazing. You can hesitate between 2pts for Dervish or 3pts for Strong Arm.)

* Jewels : very nice, but two of them do not have life.
* Flasks : Taste of Hate is excellent for farming. For bossing, you can swap a Silver Flask for some more DPS.

Here's a simulation : https://pastebin.com/XsbvieL4
In this version, your could reach 3M DPS with flasks on release. More than enough to melt Guardians and Shaper ;)

*

While I am it, here is my new body armour :

I love Loreweave, but this one is OP :
* Lots of life
* Attack supported by level 1 Maim is a lot more DPS.
And the icing on the cake :
* -15 to mana cost
Now, your BF is virtually free, you can channel it all day ! And more importantly, you can stack it before hitting enemies while they rush at you.

But your elem res go back to 75% max. When you are glass-cannon, might as well become more cannon and more glass :D

Bought it for 10ex in std, and that was a good deal. Most are worth 15ex or much more. 4ex+ in league. You also have STR version, STR/INT etc.

New PoB link : https://pastebin.com/jC32qUkQ
* New body armour
* Reworked skill tree
* Since I have no mana cost, I have added Precision lvl 1.

That's up to 7.5M DPS for you, ladies and gentlemen.

I'd love to give crafting a dagger a go. I have little experience in this. Is their a website / guide for crafting a dagger w/ this build? Is that the way to go for 450+ physical damage daggers?



I am loving the build <3
