You need to set your profile to public, so someone can take a look at your gear/skills and tree.
But generally speaking. No build is immortal in this game but this build is very good at dodging/evading, so you should not die that much. Seems like something is wrong.

But to be fair. This build is not the greatest boss killer. It is very important to have experience with the big bosses to be able to defeat them (Awakener/ Uberelder etc.) Watch a youtube video to get some tips here.

how is it in ultimatum
This build is still more than viable in Ultimatum, I can crush all content easily and have smoothly levelled from 94 to 98 after respeccing a CoC Assassin with just 2 deaths, both from my own carelessness. Mapping is butter smooth with Caustic Arrow in offhand and A9 conquerors melt in about 2-3 seconds, I can do all invitations except for The Feared deathless.

However, min-maxing the build is a lot more expensive as it's harder to get your TR to level 30. Before the Harvest changes, it was easy to craft a top tier amulet with +1 chaos, +1 dex, CDOT multi, and some useful suffixes like resists. Even if you didn't want to craft it yourself, you could buy one for 10-12ex mid-league and there were tons listed. Now those amulets cost upwards of 60ex each for a half-decent one, 100ex+ for a really good one, and there are only a few listed on the market. So I've had to settle for an amulet that only has +1 chaos and CDOT for now, easily missing out on a chunk of DPS.

Again, this is just min-maxing. I'm already at 11mil Sirus DPS assuming 3 pod overlap so I'm just trying to juice the build at this point. Maybe it's cause I'm sad and nostalgic that I was able to hit 22mil+ DPS with 5 pod overlap before it got nerfed last league.


Hi, im following this guide and those itens above are my current gear. What should be my next upgrade on them? I want to improve dmg a bit (currently with 6M sirus dps)
I am starting this as SSF in standard. Does anyone have a loot filter to use? Ive never played SSF so a little overwhelmed with what loot I actually need to pick up.
I have played this build back in Heist as a league starter and quite enjoyed it. How bad were the nerfs to the build since then? Is it still a S-tier league starter?
Hello again, glad to see your build is still just as good, if not even stronger now.

Where are the "notes" please? I looked in the notes after loading up the pastebin link, but there doesn't appear to be anything there.

I have the passive tree loaded up, and all the other info about the main link and what have you no notes though.

I'm wondering if I'm looking in the wrong place, please?

Yeah dude, there's definitely no notes in the pastebin link that I can find.

I have it loaded up. everything else is there, but there's nothing in the notes section.

Am I doing something wrong, please mate?

Thanks.

EDIT: just using common sense when following the full passive tree.

I grabbed the first big health node at the beginning just as it makes sense to have a bit of health. going to try and just got for master fletcher now though. Maybe stopping to pick up some more health if need be.

Only stopping for health currently though. I remember being squishy as hell once I started to have to fight the original bosses (like malekith) I don't know if I've really been any further in the story yet, been years since I finished this.

Looking forward to experiencing the rest of the story though. Hopefully I don't fall sick this time before I can finish it again, ha ha (no really though, that would suck)

I've just killed the 3 bandits. I have master fletcher and I grabbed the nodes closest to the start with health and outright damage upgrade.

What is advised to grab next, please?

Do I need more health, to start getting evasion or go for more damage?

I don't want to end up messing up the character, by not getting enough of something in time.

is the best way to just level up everything a bit, or am I better off going for a certain thing now and then the others after, please?
