[3.6] Conversion Chaos Blade Vortex Trickster/Assassin😈5~30 M Shaper Dps😈Uber Elder 1:43⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


introduction
➡️This is a crit-based Blade Vortex build built around bossing, utilizes Conversion mechanics along with Veiled mods that introduced to the game in v3.5. The build is initially designed as a 5k hp full DPSer (Damage-oriented version) to kill abandoned breach stone boss from 6-man party rotation. Even though I met the goal, I still not satisfied because the character died occasionally. I decided to min-max my character by giving up some damage for life. So, the build gets balanced (Balanced version), dealing insane DPS with solid survivability as well, able to annihilate all end game content besides very deep Delve mine.

➡️Pros & Cons
✔️A shitload of burst damage
✔️Instant phase/kill anything being a tanky character
✔️Unlimited ceiling for gear investment
✔️High-efficiency by abusing sort of overpowered mechanics
✔️Respectable Clear speed
✔️Physical-reflect map viable
❌Normal mobility
❌Not SSF-friendly
❌Gearing problem especially in a new league
❌Bad league-starter
❌Bad Performance at deeper mine levels

v3.6 changes
➡️10/03/2019 🔗view PoB from within the browser
This build got nerfed in v3.6
▸VRF got nerfed from 39% to 28%
▸BV base damage got nerfed 19%
▸Veiled Modifier got nerfed .
The change of mod 'non-chaos ..." has no significant impact on overall damage. Just substitute "Phys add lightning" for "Non-chaos add chaos", but this move would increase the crafting cost.
At the same time, we can no longer roll or craft more than one "X% of Physical Damage converted to Fire/Cold/Lightning" on a glove, this change merely reduce our damage less than 5%, this loss could be compensated by replacing with "increased Damage during any Flask Effect".
▸Consecrated ground now adds 100% increased crit while you're on ground (buff)

Overall damage nerf : 20% LESS (1/1.39*1.28*0.818*1.04*1.04=0.81)
*1.04 is Nimbleness and jewel socket

▸That means we need a bit more time(25%) to kill stuff, for example, if you kill minotaur in 3 seconds in 3.5, you need 3*1.25 now, that is 3.75s.

▸In the other side, Loreweave 78% now, which is still good.(Eternity Shroud may be an alternative)
▸The new buff to Swift Killer is also nice that fit to our playstyle, allows us to maintain charges (by wither) in need.

▸Generally speaking, the build setup is almost unchanged and still works effectively as in v3.5, that dealing insane damage as well being tanky, because the COMBO of BV+VBV along with Conversion is still very powerful, in both aspects: Mechanics and Base Damage.

Gem: Divine Ire, Storm Burst, and Bladefall will be a good fit for this build.
To be determined:
Gem: Arcane surge
A new implicit mod to Synthesised Gloves: Phys to lightning conversion

Mechanics
➡️By maximizing the number of times of damage conversion, and stacking added extra chaos modifiers(see list), we ended up gaining massive extra added chaos damage between conversions. As a result, chaos damage is over 80% of total damage, we could cast wither to take our DPS to the next level. Meanwhile, combined with new veiled modifiers that grant powerful effects while Focussed for 4 seconds, make our boss fight become very easy.

➡️List for all sources of extra added chaos

Gain 65% of Physical Damage as Extra Chaos Damage in total (25+4+4+18.75+13)
Gain 99% of Elemental Damage as Extra Chaos Damage in total (20+20+19+4+4+18.75+13)

Ascendancy

More burst damage, a choice for damage-oriented player

-Movement skill costs no mana etc

Hello! What order of ascendancy points should I take? I'm guessing Harness the Void first?

Also, could you set your profile to public so we can see your characters? Thanks!

This build is really nice and the tree is also well balanced, but it sucks for leveling.

I would go for void first if you wanna have less struggle with bosses, or Swift Killer, if you want to level faster. Weave the arcane and Patient reaper are just bonus. DON'T FOLLOW THIS BUILD IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE CONVERSION ITEMS!!!

Conversion items like cob make this build work, they double dip and I'm petty sure some People will now say there is no double dipping.

Hi,
Unfortunately, I cant public my profile because my character is in Garena server(TW). please check the lastest POB .

My ascendancy order is :
Swift killer > Harness the void > Weave the Arcane > Patient Reaper

Swift killer provide much more damage then Harness the void in the early game
Swift killer = 16% more damage + 80% increased damage + 160% crit chance , almost double your damage in early game.
Harness the void = 6.25%+7.5%+5% = 18.75% more

I wouldn't recommend level this build as BV, try Storm Brand(12) + lightning spire trap(28) til around 77+ and do breach stone rotation. At this moment you could swap to BV .

this is not a SSF-friendly build😂
CoB, multi-mod glove, and two craft multi dagger would be the minimum requirement of this build. Also, 85lv shaper dagger base and T1 veiled mod will be another challenge. The Major problem is to acquire Exalt for multi-mod.
