The mandotory uniques are two Cold Iron Point and The Golden Rule

Blade Vortex link by priority:

Blade Vortex -> Deadly Ailments -> Vile Toxins -> Unbound Ailments -> Void Manipulation -> Empower


Flasks recommendation by best:

Uniques recommendation:

Bandits:

Kill all or help Alira


Pantheon:

Soul of Shakari is a must because poison immunity
Solaris or Lunaris


I am happy with suggestions for improvement.

That is some truly amazing damage. My only issue, after watching a few videos... do you actually do anything to fight with BV? Or is BV more passive than even Cyclone was (which was already fairly boring to play)? It seems like you just walk around with an aura on that kills everyone, without any active playing. Is that right?

Either way, build is tight.

Need to keep 10 blades to max dps. So is more like winter orb, walk around while the skill kill everything and every 1-2s cast BV to maintain stack.
Hey man. First of all, I really like the idea of your build. I have one question:
What is the point of herald of agony? Just the poison? Can I drop it and just lose 10% damage or will I lose more damage?

Why do you use The Golden Rule, for chaos res only?

Do you think it's possible to start league with this build?

you can drop, but will need to get 16% poison chance somewhere else

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Noxious_Strike
I use golden rule because of noxious strike, 5% increased poison duration for each poison inflicted recently, with golden rule you inflict 2 poison instead 1 to stack the passive.

I cant affirm you can league start, i never played with BV poison as league start. But i think is possible.

I don't think it's a good one, have other nodes which increase more damage: Will of Blades, Force Shaper and Method to the Madness.
I will reconsider this because the 2 daggers will be stupidly expensive.
Is there a way to work withering step into this? Wither totems were a massive PITA last league for me.
