[3.9][HC/SC] Soulrend Trickster - Fast mapper with great defenses (League starter/All content)

I planned to play soulrend when it was released, but was to busy, then it was nerfed..seems now the time has come!
As ssf player (softcore), i wonder how good it will be for deep delving?
Or I will need more control+defensive mechanics to manage 600+ depth?
Quite hyped for the buff, i'll play this build as my starter in hcssf. It's gonna be fun to see how much is rippy this league. Of course i need to buy first cat mtx :D.
Rather then that, do you plan to play with gmp or maybe try the new greater volley support?

There appears to be some confusion on exactly what the .4-.6 duration buff means. Ziz was underwhelmed with the buff, but this APPEARS to be a 50% damage buff? Or does it not tick that way?

Can anyone who knows how this works explain exactly what kind of a change we got in 3.9?

well.... in theorie its 50% more dmg... but only if you casted soulrend max .6 times/sec wich normally you do much more often. since soulrend debuff DO NOT stack it doenst help you if you cast it more often then it lasts

From my understanding, it's more of a comfort and QOL buff rather than straight 50% damage increase. In cases where you are able to spam soulrend while stationary, the duration increase wouldn't affect your damage. The more mobile you have to be during a boss fight, the more this duration increase helps your overall damage because the debuff will fall off less often.
Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. :)
HEY BUDDY great build! do you plan to make an update for 3.9?
Now, when we know numbers on new awakened support gems:
-GMP
-Swift affliction
-Vicious projectiles
-Void manipulation
-Added chaos damage
-Controlled destruction
-Unleash

, what will be the best combination?
Would like to have priority list, if some1 done calculations !

Also, with new grearter volley support, and LMP buff, how would you rate it VS GMP?
my prediction for endgame is AGMP>GV>GMP
as for progression LMP to ~38-50 ->GMP/GV->AGMP
Except for the gems and support changes (as noted in post above), does this build really need to be updated? I'm pretty casual player so not really sure if the trickster ascendancy or nodes for this build were changed at all in 3.9.

Pretty much this.

Not really, everything seems to remain unchanged. You can follow the 3.8 pobs.

Just use the awakened versions of all support gems. Awakened gmp gives 20% cast speed, which is super good in our case, as soulrend is quite slow to cast.

Yep, once pob is updated :)
