Your DPS is quite alright considering you're only at level 60+. Your ES on the other hand is rather impressive for the kind of gear that you have. I think you can afford to respec some points from the ES circle if your priority is DPS and spend them instead on the adder's touch cluster, then head on down to VP, grabbing the shield nodes along the way.

Hi
I have been using this build to make a very simmilar one myself but I can't really decide on what's best.
I've been using the eye of chayula unique for a while but as i'm getting closer to VP I'm wondering whether it's better to keep using it and stay evasion based or take IR and US en get a different, better amulet.
I think that if I'm going IR than getting US is probably the best since the 5% base evasion is probably not worth the stats I lose from not having a good amulet so that's not rly an option.

I'm sorry if this question has been asked before and I haven't seen it.

Thanks already for the possible guidelines.

Oh, I view it as the other way round haha. The only reason I've specced for IR is because US is great. Going US allows you to get an ammy upgrade which helps alot in terms of DPS. If not for US, I'd not take IR at all tbh.

Once u get US, you'll realise how much of a dps upgrade a good rare ammy will be over chayula.

You're welcome :)

You really shouldn't be hoping to facetank kole and win at your level and with ur gear :p

I daresay if you use chayula instead of your rare ammy, you'll find it much easier going in a map. Tbh though level 65 is still on the low side to be doing maps. I wouldn't be in a hurry if I were you.

Hey guys,

I'm thinking of respeccing my tree a bit in order to include Vaal Pact and Iron Reflexes. Which of the two builds do you guys think is the best?

Build 1: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgYBBX0OSBB7ES8RlhUgFdcWvxjbGYYZ1xzcHaoeGh6BIWAnqSgqKLUppSo4Kk0rCiymLL8s6S9vMFQ0CjY9N2Y3gz8nQKBGcUcGSshLjU4qVmNW6luvX2pjQ2-ecFJwVnC7dPF_xoMJhq6H24hCiGuMC5Abks2S85MnmVeZmpoTnaOeuaXLpn-m66c0rEexs7QMtMW1SLb3uXy-OsEAwcXC7MNtykrXhtkT2xrb1N0N4YjjhOn-6yzrY-wY7LDtQe9O8-r1S_yr_xz_kw==

Build 2: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgYBAecFfQW1DPIOSBB7ES8RlhLhFdcWvxjbGdUZ1xpVGtsbrR4aHoEhYCepKCootSmlKjgrCiy_L28wVDMMNug94j7PQKBHBkjuS41OKlFHVmNW6lb6W69famEhY0Nko3BScFZwu3Txf8aGrofbiEKIa4wLjb-QG5lXmZqaE52jnrmfy6Lqpcumf6c0sbO0xbVItve307l8vea-OsEAwcXC7MNt14bXy9kT2xrb1N0N44Tp_utj7BjssO1B7g7vTvPq9Uv5Y_yr_MX-K_8c_5P_3g==

Feedback would be much appreciated about which is better and why.

I would go for the 2nd version. US allows you to use a different ammy besides chayula which will be a massive DPS boost. If you can get 20% increased max ES on that ammy as well, you'll end up with a higher ES as compared to the first.

The additional evasion (IR) bonus isn't really that necessary if you're relying on offense (VP) for defense. As long as you have enough ES to not one shot yourself, you'll be fine.

TY for the answer.

Yes I was also thinking like you are I think. Maybe I just explained it the wrong way but I just want to be immune to stuns. But Ty for the help i'll be getting US as soon as possible then.
Hi i just build my own crit dagger shadow from last week and now its lv. 73 but im facing problem since i can only run 1 aura which is hatred otherwise i can't sustain the mana cost to continuously spam my skills. Also, I don't know if my damage is average or just low as my flickerstrike DPS is around 3.8K only and LS 10K without aura. I badly need your advice as I really love to play this char as the clearing speed per map (66/68) were really fast except for reflect mobs where i died immediately. I used 2 lavianaga flask to counter mana problem.

ES at present almost 3.8K without discipline

My gear

my passive tree


About the aegis shield, is it okay to use it or better with another high ES shield with good resist?

Thank you in advance and have a nice day!

What's your chestpiece and links?

Some comments about your tree - there's no need to grab Arcane Vision and Primal Spirit. Also, Lavianga's isn't really that great when you don't have much mana to begin with. Your mana sustain should be entirely from leech alone and not with flasks.

I think your dps is fine for your level. What's not fine though is your ES. You definitely need a much better ES shield. Aegis Aurora, although a good shield in it's own right, is not the best for this build. You'd be far better off with a 500+ ES shield.
