I was looking at using this build for my ssf league starter. How much of a dps loss do you think it'll be with the changes to multimod?

Answer: not much!



We lose some cast speed of course and an easy way to gain Arcane Surge while clearing (and some skill effect duration), but apart from that our overall damage doesn't suffer much.

That's because the +1 gems and +2 support are the main sources of damage on Essence Drain

Changes in 3.9:

There are a couple important things to take note of for 3.9 and this particular build, so please read below info:

There are no nerfs to Trickster and / or Essence Drain announced (yet). That is good news! However, multimodding will be nerfed, and this impacts us as well. With 3.9 we'll only be able to craft the "Can have up to 3 crafted mods" modifier instead of good old multimod, so we'll have to look into new options for our main weapon as we'll be only able to craft 2 mods on top of the new multi-mod.

Pref: +1 to Level of Socketed Gems
Suff (crafted): Can have up to 3 Crafted Modifiers
Pref (crafted): +40% to Chaos Damage over Time Multiplier
Suff (crafted): +2 to Level of Socketed Support Gems


Can u change the front Page? +2 to Level of Socketed Support Gems is a Pref

Thanks and i only will help not Cry

You're right, thanks for pointing that out. :)

Development Manifesto:
"A regular map boss now has (...) 25% Chaos resistance (up from 15%). A very strong boss like the Shaper now has (...) 30% Chaos resistance (up from 25%)."

How would this affect this build?

This change means we deal about 10% less damage against regular bosses and 5% less damage against Shaper.

However, GGG is increasing resistances (as well as armour) for all the boss encounters, so this affects us just as much as anyone else. The thing we have going for ourselves though is that we're "penetrating" a lot of chaos resistance through Wither & Despair. Shaper & map bosses will always have negative chaos resistance against us anyway.

It's just part of how GGG wants boss fights to last a little longer. :)

Frist, thanks a lot ArtCrusade for this awesome build guide!

I played it as my third build in 3.8 and loved it! Had some good stuff like multimod weapon, +1 curse chest but rest was cheap/self crafted. All contet was a breeze when you got used to the unique 1-2 playstlye. Fast and tanky!

This will be my starter for 3.9 and I am hyped right now :D Only worried about the price of Solstice Vigil - depends on how often players will be able to fight shaper i guess...

Wish you all a great league start!

I'll post a PoB without Solstice Vigil once the new patch for Path of Building drops. Basically moving some nodes on the passive tree around and switching out Flesh & Stone for Temp Chains

EDIT: Btw guys, I am gonna keep playing my ED character and try and push for 100. I'll probably be posting a couple more videos of just clearing efficiently in case anyone's interested
