[3.13]Poison Spellslinger Poet's Pen Blade Fall/Blast | Budget league start viable | Fast clear

Great build ! I added call to arms + enduring cry to the build, and feels great. What do you think about it guys?

Hahaha sorry, yes, without herald and precision.

With that ES layer boost almost 1.8k EHP to my build + ES gain on watch and I'm flying over t16. I feel my damaga was enough to clear easyly t16s and very fast so I decided to run more defenses.

Also my first Cyrus A8 was deathless (I've been practicing a lot) and this was my loot
, just that and useless bases


also you have some really nice gear. i can't find rings on trade anything close to what you have.

the double-curse thing is working great.

also CwDT is really helping. i notice a definite improvement. i always forget that CwDT/IC is a gem tax.

i really like your ES buffer, i'm going to give that a try in some way and see how it works out.

my damage is not quite that good yet, but my gems are not even 20.

Go for despair on hit ring instead of snakebite so you can get a 2c temp chains on hit glove. very easy to get +1 curse in a variety of different ways that are easily accessible with this build. Temp chains is amazing for this build. If I only had 1 curse to pick with this build, a build already doing lots of damage, I'd take temp chains to get some extra defense, since it also boosts our damage.
You can get 2 curses really easily. I'm running 3 and could do 4 if I thought enfeeble was worth it.

You can get despair on hit/life gain on spell hit/life rings at a fairly reasonable price.


this was great advice. i got a +1 curse ammy, put temp chains on hit on gloves and got a despair on hit ring.

unfortunately i couldn't get life of the despair on hit ring. well i could, but not for what i could afford and also get the resistance i needed.

uh, despair on hit/life gain on spell hit rings are multiple exalts. that's not really reasonable. unless you need no elemental resistance, but i'm having a terrible time keeping resistance capped. too many uniques.

however the dual curse thing is working really well. great idea ! thanks !

edit: i do wonder though if the dual curse set-up is stronger than 1-curse and an ammy anointed with dirty techniques.





Dirty techniques is huge damage, because it also makes poison deal damage faster, i would use that over vulnerability, because vulnerability is weaker on bosses and applying that extra curse isnt that easy

CWDT is nice and i used it for a long time. But honestly after changing it to wither totem nothing changed at terms of survivability at all. Like it really do nothing.
Only time i really felt the difference is when i was mapping without sand stance. Thats quite impressive how much this aura impacts survivablity.
I dont see anything that can drastically improve my survivability and no obvious way to not for example get instakilled by some legion mobs.
They are usually pretty savage.
All im talking about is that build's survivability is its weakest point and i see no obvious way of changing it. And i dont think i need, its softcore after all.


When I droped my CWDT I noticed some diff in terms of surv. With CWDT I've never got randomly OS by any map/ritual/legion encounters running only t15-16, 1 out of 80 (maybe more) got random savage hits, with very lowrate oneshot by some bosses.

I can even facetank redeemer and warlord with just life and shield gain with hits. Maybe latter add some prof of that.

I use discipline (normal it's enough) instead of herald and in adition to the rings I use
to boost life/shield gain. Kinda hybrid, I still oneshootin almost every pack at t16s



I think its kinda hard to make discipline work unless you use ES base gear because we run acrobatics and it reduces your max ES. But if you use discipline with that watcher eye, you can consider trying to squeeze in corrupted soul, 20% life as extra ES will bring you to a pretty healthy E-hp range, at the cost of being weaker on chaos damage(because this extra ehp will not block chaos damage)

It's worth to try at least.

My resist ring was harvest crafted, the other was harvest caster rolled.

Ye, Shield its a bit low tbh, and can't work without corrupted soul.
I'm going to rework some item defences to grow up chaos def, there is a lot of room for it even running -10% resist jewell
Hi, I'm looking for some help. I've gotten this build to level 88, and was trying my first shaper guardian map (Chimera). It was alched, corrupted and witnessed by the Maven. I had just killed A5 sirus deathless so I figured I should be okay. I did manage to kill it but lost 5 of my 6 ports. A big problem was lack of damage, as it took me quite long to phase Chimera and Maven would regen the damage back quite often too. I would really apprecaite some guidance as to what I might be doing wrong.

I know I still need a despair on hit pair of gloves and to get my gems to 20/20, but I find it unlikely that those are the only issues.

Despair and 20/20 gems are that big of a deal, especially Despair. It adds an absurd amount of damage.

Other than that you're doing fine. Chimera is a bitch because of his immunity stages, and remember guardians have an innate 60% damage reduction, coupled with a juiced map and Maven buffs you're not going to instaphase them until your gear is very minmaxed.
Newbie here anyone have tips or steps on how to craft the rings like the poster above with the +on life gained on hit and the high life roll that seems insane? I'm on console and I haven't been able to find a ring like that to buy or I really would. The crafting helmet Armor and ring is what troubles me the most and has me a bit lost.

Thats the thing about poison builds, the damage ramps up instead of having strong front load damage. However, i would say in a proper set up without maven, chimera wouldnt be much of an issue. The mods matters heavily, because if you did the map with mobs have chance to avoid poison/bleed + chaos res, your damage is definitely heavily gimped.

We can do all map mods yes, but some mods are definitely harder and you should not expect a cake walk in maps with triple damage mods + avoid poison and + resist

I usually play trade leagues, so i dont have a super good grasp on crafting specific item, but if you insist on crafting, the best idea is going thru pristine/prismatic fossil(maybe+ sanctified) and spam away until you get a life roll+ life gain on hit roll. Other than that its probably harvest crafting, but it wont be consistent because there are so many mods tagged with life on the ring

So can anyone help me pls ? is it worth to use call to arms + enduring cry for 1 more layer ?
