yeah i saw that while doing some research after posting, also why are you annointing disintegration, cause there are way better nodes for damage and i don t know why you re not taking them ?
(PS: the interaction between kintsugi blade dancer and block is insanely busted if you think about it a little)
(PS PS: with brutal restraint you can get poison you inflict deal damage faster on Method of madness, if you want to min max the build i think it would be pretty huge, got one just now by sheer luck, best 50 c invested)


Well Disintegration is pretty good for damage too (a bit worse than f.e dirty techniques), but it also gives 20 int what is very nice because the build needs a lot of int from gear.

And yea I agree, that combo is amazing.

Damn that is pretty lucky, and ye that 10% faster poisons roll is really strong and def worth trying to go for when min maxing.

Small build update:

- Replaced Voices with Large Cluster Jewel
- Switched helmet to Starkonja in Starter setup

I noticed I still had voices setup in cluster jewel tree, but they are super expensive so I don't think its reasonable to use them (and the benefit was small compared to large cluster jewel).

barrage power siphon feel a bit clunky (like all the proj take too much time to launch) so was there any idea to replace it before ? maybe normal barrage even though you ll lose culling strike and power charge but you can still get power charge on the ascendancy and get one more support for the skill

edit: you dont really even need the power charge , they are a nice boost but dropping them for barrage instead of power siphon feel pretty great, just add GMP to replace barrage support or else it'll still fell clunky, tho you also lose the small auto target of power siphon so more precision needeed

Well the easiest way to mitigate the clunkyness is to get more attack speed. Regular Barrage will have a lot less damage, but you can try it if you want I guess.

Playing this as my first SSF character, It was rough in the beginning but started to get easier at around lvl 25.

When am I supposed to use withering step and despair? Only on bosses?

Should I just swap to power siphon when i hit maps or is it gear dependant?

Hey! This is my final take on the build, i did pretty much anything but uber Elder :)

My gear is not the best, and I honestly had some difficult doing wave20 in Simulacrum, but I had a lot of fun, and I'm bringing it in standard to get much better upgrades :)

Spoiler



Brutal Restraint has some mov speed nodes, tried to get the poison ones but had no luck
This build surprised me, pretty darn tanky. Thank you.

Tried the version from Ydoum's POB, damage is a lot better.

I don't feel squishier.

How does this build work as a league starter?
livejamie
Yea Ydoum's build is great. Gonna play this build again next league. 3 leagues in a row now.


Anyone have thoughts on this build following the crit multi nerf?
