[3.2] WIP | Poison Strike Assassin | Budget friendly Starter | potentially killing eveyrthing!




This is a very very barebones build guide for my latest build. A Molten Strike Based Posion Assassin.I dont have any video content at the moment. All of this will be added to the guide over time. I also really tried to make it a good League Starter, by really keeping the cost very low. This will be my League Starter for Bestiary League! Also this Build is open for Discussion and improvement.

ALSO IMPORTANT:

This build is highly experimental. Play this at YOUR OWN RISK!. This build might end up not living up to the standards of my other "completed" builds. But it might as well exceed them.

Other guides I made:
The Ele Claw Inquisitor
Chaos-Fire Inquisitor

Build Theory:
The latest changes to the assassin greatly boost the damage output of poison. With 5% duration per posion applied recently we can get about 540% increased posion duration. This allows to stack insane amounts of poisons at the same time. The result is some amazing single target dps. Molten Strike also offers really solid clearspeed since the introduction of Ancestral Call.

I think it might be as good with the potential to be even better. Ofc its a bit hard to say atm. Cause its a blind adventure for me too. Right now this just exists on paper. The numbers are very good.

However I did play a rather similar posion assassin in Harby League and it was already pretty good back then. Also I have quite a bit of experience in PoE and I wouldnt play something if it wasnt promising enough.

Any leveling suggestions?
