[3.8] FACETANK EVERYTHING - COC DISCHARGE, ELDER / SHAPER DOWN

Hello Exiles.

[3.8]
[Pastebin] (Now an Assassin)

In 3.8 this build got a massive buff. Now you can facetank everything.
The gear im using in the 3.8 videos is not even optimized. You can get +1
endurance charge from oiling amulet, and you can get to 100% crit chance
if you craft 'Increased Critical Strike chance' on the weapon.
The facetanking im doing in these videos also does not use any gem or
flask swapping. Lastly, the chest piece is completely free to use for extra utility, i put in flame dash + faster casting, but there are many more
possibilities for utility.

[Build mechanics]
The build uses Kingsguard for heavy 'life leech', but this means that we need
to reliably gain power charges from something other than Volls. To do this
we use double
with '#% chance to gain a Power Charge on Critical Strike', along with a lvl 20 Power Charge on Crit support. This is enough to reliably gain power charges.

For extra damage, the '#% chance that if you would gain Power Charges, you instead gain up to your maximum number of Power Charges' makes a huge difference.

Because we always have 6 endurance charges, immortal call works very well improving the survivability by a lot.

We also rely on 'Second Sight' (Brutal Restraint, Nasima) which gives us 25% more melee critical strike chance at no cost at all.

Have a question, is there an option for more budget weap ?
Does cast on crit still work with cyclone? I thought it didn't since cyclone is now a channeling skill. And according to this wiki page

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Cast_On_Critical_Strike_Support

Cannot support totems, traps, or mines. Vaal skills, channelling skills, and skills that reserve mana cannot be triggered

cast on crit cannot support channeling skills.

This means you CANT trigger THOSE skills, not that it wouldnt work WITH them.

Cast on Crit can support Cyclone to TRIGGER a SPELL on CRIT, but cannot trigger any of spells ON CRIT from Cyclone listed above.

For example, you can't make your cyclone trigger lightning tendrils when it crits.
Jkurs on twitch, come and join the action . :)

Yes, you can use Cospris Malice for example. Or any weapon that you want,
and then instead socket the discharge setup into the chest armor.
Why does your POB say it's shadow ascendancy instead of marauder?

In 3.8 i changed it to Assassin, because Assassin is now a lot better. The reduced damage + no extra crit damage taken is what makes this build near immortal.
I see.. then this should be in the shadow section.. anyways, why do you use discipline?

I actually reposted it in the shadow section. I use discipline for extra tankyness, and because i have a watchers eye with énergy shield gained on hit.
