Actually. Nothing changed. They just cleaned up the tree wording it looks like? Compared 3.9 to 3.10 in POB and the bleed % is the same.




actually I leveledup cleaving and previous skill nodes.
its more than just clearing up.
they dont give you dmg.
only "bleeding deals faster" mod increased my dmg.

so axe attacks increase dmg are not helping you on sst.


edit: rip sst


Yea noticed that last night actually when I was looking at what you were doing. I stopped the build as well as it seems to have taken a huge hit in that axe area.
In shield nodes where there was "Increased Attack damage and Increased Ailment damage" now is just "Increased Damage" so bleed is still profiting from them.

Dunno about axe nodes, they shouldn't have worked anyway.

Edit. Yeah, they changed "... while wielding an Axe" part to "Axe attacks" so from this node only "damage to bleeding enemies" and "bleeding faster" will work.

Yes it's the next season GGG does not care about niche skills like SST ;)

I really had hope as they first mentioned Cluster jewels.

Some are still nice for us. Cleaving is a nerf though.

I started BV Assasin this season. Pretty fun.

I will still try to play SST in Delirium asap. I think bleed itself is not in a bad spot for the mods. But every season you are getting crippled more not playing it on a main bleed skill e.g. Lacerate

I just compared 3.9 and 3.10 in PoB (fork). I used all the gear from my 3.9 character and recreated the same tree in 3.10. Here are the results:


3.9:

3.10:

Edit: Prior to the 3.10 my DPS was already 1.08M. So no difference. In fact my combined DPS is 1K higher in 3.10.

I know I am not wielding an axe and still use Cleaving (anointment). I've always had it just for the bleed dmg so I can't tell if the DPS related to axes changed.

When I put in your POB it says your damage is 108K not million

PoB regular or PoB fork? Regular PoB doesn't calculate crimson dance bonus (bleed stack)
The build is pretty good and fast so it fits this league. Especially with new cluster jewels we don't need to expand the tree so much.
I was targeting to switch to Earthquake and use Blasphemers Grasp but Earthquake is too slow so I'll stick to SST.
My POB https://pastebin.com/ZC8Rweg6 with 6th link will have 1M bleed stacked damage and with good gear I can reach 2M.
My builds:

Where are all the items in the pob?
The pob i made is just for all the trees.

For gear you can look in the section here, import my old Gladiator Character, or ask here in thread / via PM if you have more specific questions.


Currently back to SST in 3.10. I will update this guide soon and maybe also write a 2nd guide about the Deadeye SST project i currently started. Depends on how well the Endgame is going.

Crafted awsome shield and now got 2M dps. There are issues with mana sometimes. I'll craft -9 mana cost when I get tier 3 from Syndicate.
