[3.14] The Nightblade | Videos #1 : Oshabi | #2 : Uber Elder/Maven | #3 : Delirium Ultimatum

Thankyou! I think ill try Viper strike then, is there anything i should change up with what you've done here apart from support gems?
On the skill tree, you should probably get more chaos and poison nodes.
+ Poison / Chaos nodes on the stuff.
Probably Herald of Agony + Despair curse ?

Could you use claws instead of daggers for this build? Would you just take the soul raker tree instead of the dagger and that's it?

Yes ofc, you can take the claws. I suppose it's more survivability and less DPS, as is generally the case with claws VS daggers.

Now, you'd have to change the 3 dagger clusters I've taken on the skill tree : Flaying+Backstabbing, Adder's Touch and From the Shadows. 17 points.
As you can see, we now have 4 clusters for claws.

Oh, and don't forget to adapt your jewels too. Otherwise, it can be the same build.

Great guide buddy! You put a lot of effort in it, that's for sure :)
the tree shows that we dont take backstabbing in this build?
why not?

I have just checked the latest PoB link : https://pastebin.com/7DJkY6ey
And yes, we do take Backstabbing. It is included in the skill tree.

Several players have asked me more info about mid-game stuff.
I have given several indications in section 8 "Midgame" for viable stuff to begin Atlas. Here are more detailed ideas, with prices from Poe.trade standard :

- Daggers : 2 Bino's Kitchen Knives.
. 5c each.

- Body Armour : 5-link.
* Belly of the Beast, 35c
* Carcass Jack, 2ex

- Helmet : A good Starkonja with no links, 5c. And then 4-link it yourself.

- Gloves : any Shaper's Touch, 10c. Then 4-link it.

- Boots : Atziri's Steps, 10c.

- Belt : A Stygian Vise with life and tri-res, 20c. + Murderous Eye Jewel with 25-30 life and an attack mod : 10c.

- Amulet : If you have enough res elsewhere, a unique one like :
* Bloodgrip : 1c
* Carnage Heart : 10c
* Warped Timepiece : 10c
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/List_of_unique_amulets

A good rare one with life, phys dmg and 2 res : 10c.
For our build, best base is Jade amulet, as the implicit is +20-30 DEX. You can spam blessing orbs to put it to max.

- Ring : Good unique ones : https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/List_of_unique_rings
* Blackheart : 1c
* Voidheart : 25c
* Le Heup of All : 10c
* Death Rush : 15c
* Mark of the Elder : 15c + a rare Shaped one with life, attack and some res : 20c
A good rare one with life, atk, 2 res : 5c

*

Here is a simulation with PoB for level 71 : https://pastebin.com/ASQjR4Bw
3500 life, 500k DPS with flasks. And I haven't accounted for the Impale effect, which would be 11% more phys dmg.

Hello, I am playing this build this league and the dmgs is pretty high.
I deplete bosses health bar so quick, but, at around lvl 70, I feel pretty squishy, I only have around 3k life tho ( Still have to get all the life nodes on the bottom side ), yet with max res I still can die to 2-3 hits, I am saving for a 5link belly now.

Should I aim for something in particular after that for more survivality?
Thanks for the amazing build! I love fast melee builds!

Hey OP,

Bout to try this build real soon! very well written, thank you for this.

I'm exploring new mechanics and i've never personally played poison builds (apart from a little bit of toxic rain). Have you tried implementing HoAG somewhere?
