(3.12) Toxic Rain + Caustic Arrow | 5-10m Sirus DPS | Fast + Durable | 50c Budget/SSF Uber Elder

Hey everyone! Having a ton of fun with this build and re-learning the game. Can anyone please help me figure out what to upgrade next? I can do t16 maps and what not, but the damage is starting to fall off a bit, especially against the Conquerors.

I'm sitting on about 450c right now. Not sure what would be most efficient to upgrade.

Get an Asenath's Chant (around 30-40c), which triggers socketed spells when using a bow skill, and socket a despair. The curse boosts dps a lot.

I wouldn't take the energy shields nodes. On your tree, those towards witch and void barrier, these nodes don't help your damage. if you regret all these you have 21 skill points. As you drop the Vertex and discipline and use the Chant, you can also regret charisma for 4 more points.

Instead path towards scion life wheel, get constitution (life), sentiel (resist), exceptional performance (skill effects duration, for damage), profane chemistry (life and flask), finese (attack speed), jewel socket, and avatar of the hunt (bow damage, dot and evasion). This costs a total of 24 skill points. POB shows your dps will go up from 140k to 200k. The auto curse further boosts it to 350k.

Drop your Assassin's Haste jewel. A rare jewel with 8% increased attack speed with bows and 4% chaos damager over time multiplier only costs a few chaos.

Your gems have no quality...Awakened void manipulation, VP, and swift affliction costs only 50-80c each.
I was using the Vertex and I could use the three auras with no issue, but now I want to swap to a ES Hubris with -9 chaos and I can't run all three auras anymore. How can I solve this? Getting more mana? I just followed the recommended PoB. Is the OP only using the vaal discipline?

I have Enlighten 4 btw.

PD: I forget about Clarity (I have the Watcher's Eye), Clarity reserves 34 mana and I have 25 left. So maybe getting the mana nodes that I have left I can solve this.

Like I was saying, I can't run all 4 auras with the current setup so maybe I need to pick more mana reserved nodes...

Got lucky with 2 yolo annuls lol. Shame I can't craft elemental ailments to be 100%. If I multimod there's no more suffixes free. But if I don't multimod I have to slam and prey to hit good ES rolls. If I multicraft I can do both increased ES and flat ES...

Now my only problem left is that i can't cast wither totem, cost me 32 mana and I have 17 left. Only able to cast it If I drop multiple totem + faster casting :S

Damage seems good and life is nice, definately one of the better builds I've played in a few leagues. Think you can look that over and see where my next big buy should be? I can't decide and I don't wanna drop something huge on something not great lol.

Perhaps I'm a bit late; but for your mana issues, have you considered dropping clarity and swapping out your watcher's eye for
?
You would need to add staunching to your life flask for those pesky attack bleeds.

I too love the 100 ailment immunity, so much that I dropped atziri's step for rare shaper boots with 25% immunity ( I don't have the currency for a bis helm lol).
i think i maxed my caustic/toxic rain char.
Is there anything you guys would change / upgrade.

Spoiler

toxic rain


caustic arrow


sirus etc i change hh to



4.8k life
2.6k es
caustic 300k cdps
toxic 110k cdps
resis capped
