[3.11] Scourge Arrow Poison Prolif Pathfinder - Fast, tanky, easy and fun to play, beginner friendly

I'm notorious for never getting a 6-link. So as a 5L warrior, which gem do I exclude? Vile Toxins since its listed last? Or do I just go with tabula forever?

Yeah. I am running 5link atm as well (switched from tabula to 5l Darkscorn and QoTF, and then Kintsugi) and I skipped Vile Toxins.

Does the 6l for damage have to be in the darkscorn, or will the extra poison damage count if SA is linked in a 6l body armor?

It is global, so you can put 6l into body just fine.

Btw, for future update:

I will be changing default version to Kintsugi + Wild Dancer instead of QoTF, and I will be keeping QoTF version as alternative one.

I also created bunch of extra trees (level 90, 80, 70 and 60). I will do this update later today if I will be able to fix my internet :D

So, as promised, big guide update:

- Switched Kintsugi + Wild Dancer setup to main setup
- Switched Wild Dancer ascendancy node to Nature's Adrenaline (from Master Alchemist)
- Switched Wild Dancer Alchemist's Jade Flask of Reflexes to Experimenter's Jade Flask of Heat
- Added level 90, 80, 70 and 60 trees

This means the main setup gained 40% less damage taken if not hit recently, slightly more attack speed, and lost around 34% movement speed, what is not really a big deal. I believe the Kintsugi version is more friendly to beginners (even though also a bit more expensive, because of the jewel, but jewel is not necessary at all to play that version) as it is super safe (thanks to the damage reduction, and after that big boost to evasion).

Main post was already updated with new PoB link. All related sections that previously had QoTF values for the build were updated as well.

My one gripe with this build is the 6ex maloneys but given most of this gear is between 1 and 30ish chaos that is a very small gripe. Ill definitely be giving this a try as this league i wanted to try a bow build that wasnt TS/LA and barrage.

I have alternative setup with self-cast frenzy + curse on hit, what is decent (and the build has plenty of links free in body for it), and you would instead use Drillneck as quiver, what is pretty cheap. Its a bit more effort, but also actually slightly more damage (because Drillneck adds plenty).

Pretty much the same build i had in mind when i saw Darkscorn's buffs (for the n-th time that is)

Mine has a bit less life but more utility : no Scion life wheel but Force Shaper + Unpredictable offensive + Silent Steps + Crystal Skin in order to get a decent amount of damage reduction.

Maloney's Nightfall instead of Maloney's Mechanism, rare gloves instead of Embalmer.
DPS is a bit lower but less reliant on poison, which doesn't matter all at all against white/blues.

For once, that's a build with no glaring flaws on this forum, congrats !
