[3.10] Hasunic's leaguestart TR/CA Tanky Trickster. 10-13k eHP | Phase Acro| Ailment Immunity | SSF

Hello everyone. I wanted to share my build from Metamorph league. I further improved it in Delirium league, but I think it is at a very strong position right now.
I leaguestarted with a Shadow, that I wanted to build into Toxic Rain with Trickster ascendency. I had never played Toxic Rain before, so it had been quite a journey discovering how to scale the damage best and get a suited survivabillity.
This is my result.

Current PoB(Level 97 Trade - 23/03-2020) https://pastebin.com/4VPDsTDZ - Wither = 5, Onslaught, 3 Frenzy Charges
I'm using Thread of Hope, and I allocate Phase Acrobatics to skip the Acrobatics ES Penalty.
Furthermore I have allocated Silent Steps for 5% reduced damage taken from blinded enemies and Fatal Toxins for the 10% chaos resistance (im low on chaos resistance) And also Allocated Hunter's Gambit

It can be hard to fit all aura's with reduction nodes, but with a level 4 enlighten and vertex it is possible.
Otherwise use 4 points for reduction passives. You can also use clarity for easier mana sustain.

Gem links 3.10
Spoiler




Ascendency + Bandits + Pantheon
Spoiler

Bandits: Help Alira. You can shift to +2 passive points very lategame if you are managing your mana regen and have enough resistances.

Ascendency
Spoiler




Pantheon:

Major:

Use Soul of Lunaris for mapping, and Soul of Arakaali for Awakener. Soul of Solaris is also good in some situations.

Minor:

Primarily I use Soul of Abberath to always be immune to burning ground, but I shift to Soul of Shakari while fighting hunter :)

Soul of Gruthkul is very strong early and makes labtrials easier in my opinion because you take less bleeding damage :)



3.10 Interesting notables from Cluster Jewels
Spoiler

Interesting Cluster Jewel Notables to keep on the look for
Please note, that these come with an opportunity cost because you will probably have to spec into the far jewel socket close to CI, or remove the thread of Hope by phase acrobatics.
I cannot say, if a jewel socket in a new cluster will be able to pick phase acrobatics, but you will lose some of the other notables by removing thread of Hope.

Gear with heavy description and how to craft
Spoiler

Chest
Spoiler


There's difference options for a chest including strong budget.
Get a Eva or ES/Eva chest with Life temple mod and craft +10% life as energy shield or you can just use a Restless Ward which is quite strong and also quite commen. It provides loads of eHP and prolonged charge duration.



Endgame gear is a Sadist Garb (If you are going for two 6 linked chest due chest colors (5G1R) with Flat ES/Eva and % Es/Eva + Free Prefix for +10% life as Energy Shield

You can craft with Dense Fossil, Alterations or Chaos Spam.


You Could also either craft or buy a Redeemer/Crusader chest with explode on kill and frenzy charges on hit.
I personally prefer the frenzy charges on hit, as this free some skill points in the passive tree while providingg frenzy charges in boss fights.
If you want to craft with awakener orb, you need a ilvl 85(min) crusader chest (Best is to use a non-mana chest, because they add many prefixes to the rollpool and a sadist garb/Carnal Armour reedemer chest with frenzy on hit.
You combine these with an awakener's orb.


If you can get a high ES version with frenzy on hit and able to craft 10% life as ES this would be very strong too.


Helmet
Spoiler


Vertex is a easy to get Boss loot from Uber Atziri. It provides tons of Evasion, Energy shield, chaos resistance and +1 to gems.
You can get -9% chaos resistance to nearby enemies on a Hunter Influenced helmet, but by rolling a helmet like this, you will add a ton of unwanted affixes, which will also make it harder to craft a decent helmet.

You can craft a ilvl 85 Hunter Hubris Circlet with Dense Fossils + Aberrajnt and hope for the best outcome (High ES + -9% chaos resistance to nearby enemies and good resistances)

Early you just use whatever you can get your hands on with high life and resistances... Maybe some ES.



Bow
Spoiler

There's tons of options for bows and you can slowly upgrade.
The most important mods on a bow is +1 gems and +2 bow gems.

You can get a cheap 6link bow with Imperial Legacy cards.
You can use fossils to craft a bow: Corroded + Metallic + Jagged will lock out
all prefixes except +1 gem/+2 bow gems and leave a spot open for +40% chaos dot multi.

Endgame bow is what is displayed.
Link to craft a endgame bow: https://youtu.be/XuEelZIXiAI




Quiver:
Spoiler

Hunter Influence, Life, Attack Speed, Chaos dot multi, dot multi, Chaos resistance or Resistances.


Can be Crafted with Aberrant + Pristine

This is a bad base.

You can combine Shaped mods with +1 Projectile with the Hunter's Mod for +25% chaos dot multi with an Awakener Orb. I suggest using a Penetrating Arrow Quiver.





Belt:
Spoiler
Cyclopean Coil can provide Immunity to Shock and Ignite, which is one of our weakpoints due to low lifepool(about 5k).
It also provides 40% or more increased damage and decent amount of life

Alternatively you can use a rare belt with life and resistance.



Boots
Spoiler


Atziri's Step is a decent starter boot, but you will need boots with resistance or strength (for the cyclopean coil) in late game


I realy like Chill/Freeze immune boots in Delirium. I think the mobs have alot of freezing mechanics, so I ended up crafting these badboys.


Good enchants: Attack speed, Movement speed, 80% stun avoidance (If you lose your ghost shrouds this will be an extra layer of defence).



Gloves
Spoiler

Rare (Hunter) gloves with high ES and/or Life, Attack speed, Chaos Dot Multi(Max 16%) and Resistances.

I used Shaper's touch in 3.9, but the added mana and increased energy shield were cut by 50%.
You can still use Shaper's touch for a huge increase in Evasion rating, approximately 50 life and a minor increase in mana/ES.

.


Rings and Amulets
Spoiler

Amulet: iLvl 82 Hunter Based. +1 Dex/Chaos Gems, Life, Energy Shield, Chaos Dot Multi and Resistances are good mods.
You can craft a amulet just using aberrant fossil.
Annoint: Corruption.

I would try to avoid using a Dex Amulet because then it becomes harder to get your strength over Dex.
Rare: Life, ES and Resistance.


Rings: Life, Resistance, Hybrid Templemod (Mana + -6/8 manacost) or Crafted -9 Elreon Mod, Mana Regen, Energy Shield and crafted minimum frenzy charges or Chaos Resistance if you need it.
I also like using a curse on hit ring with despair. Realy helps with your fast clear speed by using Caustic Arrow




Flasks
Spoiler

Use a Silver Flask if you do not get Onslaught from other Sources.
I recommend using Sulphite Flask to replace the Silver Flask if you can, or if you don't have any unique flasks.
Dying Sun provides loads of Extra Clear with multiple Arrows and Increased AoE.
Witchfire Brew provides extra damage and a stronger curse on bosses than the curse on hit from your ring, but it doesnt matter to much.



Jewels
Spoiler
Regular jewels are the best imo for damage and Abyss Jewels for Life / Energy shield. Go for the following mods.
Life, Energy Shield, Resistance, Chaos Damage over time multiplier, Chaos Damage, Damage Over Time, Attack Speed with Bows and Attack Speed.
It is Important that you get a immune to Corrupted Blood as quickly as possible.

Watcher's eye
Clarity - Extra ES from mana, remember to fit a clarity if you need it.
Malevolence - Extra Chaos Damage over time multiplier
Malevolence - unaffected by bleed is also very cool.

Thread of Hope - Small Radius, Least resistance penalty. Use this to get Phase Acrobatics and Silent Steps

Unnatural Instict or Intuitive Leap. Use these to get Overcharged, Melding and if you need the mana regen, Dreamer.




Leveling tree + Gear Advice
Spoiler

Gear Advice
- Get a early 3Green link as possible. Use Caustic Arrow + Mirage Archer + Void Manipulation
- You can use both TR and CA in 2 different gemlink setups buffing your single target DPS and makes it easier to run/clear fast.
- Use Mirage Archer with your CA (This makes you able to shoot and run while mirage archer clear)
- Use full Damage supports on TR
- Get early movement speed boots
- Get early Quicksilver flask
- Use a Short Bow(1.5 attacks per second)
- Always looks for Life and Resistances
- Link Faster Attacks to 4-link in Act 2 untill you can get Viscious Projectiles in Act 3 Library. Also buy a Swift Affliction Support.
If you can try to roll for + Gems on your bow.

You can also try to 5link a 6 socketed dropped quick bow like Grove/Thicket.

Use Withering Step to apply Withered on bosses.

----

Level Passive Tree: Ignore Jewel mods and Pick lifenodes if you need them.



Thank you for reading and please direct your questions to this thread. I am always heavy grinding, so going into questions while gaming can be annoying. Furthermore, maybe you questions and my answer can help someone else on this Forum.

FAQ. Mana Issues / Direction before being able to equip lategame stuff.

- Can use clarity
- Get mana regeneration rate
- Get flat mana regen
- Use passives on the tree with mana regeneration
- Use a enduring mana flask

mana management is pretty hard with just 1 -mana cost ring. also i dont really understand how to work this up from league start to finished build since theres so many lategame things it relies on
Reserve less mana, use enduring mana flask, use jewel with +mana on hit are valid options too except what Hasunic listed already.

Anyway order of upgrade should be:
- get enough life / resistances
- get at least lvl 20 toxic rain and a +2 bow skill weapon (usually cheap) with at least a 5-link
- work towards lvl 21 toxic rain / 6-link
- work towards +3 bow and at least +3 empower (+4 is a luxury)
- upgrade other dps parts that you can't get for cheap (things like quiver or amulet)

The build can function just using generic life / resistances armor and majority of your damage comes from the bow / gem levels. Awakened supports are nice, but can be delayed until the supply of them gets to accessible price range later in a league.

P.S. Instead of cyclopean coil you can just use ailment removing flasks, and normal stygian vise or even leather belt.


3.9 Gear, Gems and PoB

Spoiler

Current PoB(Level 100 SSF - 22/02-2020) https://pastebin.com/eK1rhrCU Same pastebin as of 22/02-2020, but updated for 3.10
I'm using Thread of Hope, and I allocate Phase Acrobatics to skip the Acrobatics ES Penalty.
Furthermore I have allocated Silent Steps for 5% reduced damage taken from blinded enemies and Hunter's Gambit, because I did not have enough points to reach it.

Caustic Arrow + TR T15 mapclear https://youtu.be/KiXFU7iozFk


Current Delve: 600(trade), 500 (ssf)

Gem links
Spoiler


Note: I am using a ring slot for either Flame Dash or Withering Step because I wanted 5link for my Awakened Curse on Hit, but if you don't have level 5 awakened Curse on Hit just use Despair and you don't need an unset ring
I am using Caustic Arrow for mapclear and Toxic Rain for bossing with GemSwap. When you get loads of +1 arrows and a penetrating quiver Caustic Arrow feels so strong and fast for mapclear.




My Gear
Spoiler


Note that using unnatural instinct in the intuitive leap spot can give about the same rewards, but save passive points. It's price can vary.

Thank you for the guide. I am having a real smooth leveling-experience right now. Just started today and am already lvl 56 after around 5h of playtime.
I am using Quill Rain and it works nicely with the skill.

just leveled my trickester and started gearing and i got myself the imperial bow to start crafting i threw around 20 fossils on it so far but still no satisfying rolls, so i dicided to just roll with the 6L for now but thats when i noticed that its going to be hard to get the required 212 dex instead of the 179 required from thicket bow any tips on what you'd do?

yeah It is a bit harder, but you can get some dex on the tree. I used a dex craft to start with and some of the dex on the tree.

20 attempts seems so much, what were u going for?

so i crafted what i wanted on the bow after 37 fossils and some god blessed rng got the chest from trade and fixed the stats with the chest and amulet for now this is the gear i currently have, still need watcher's eye and rare jewel also no corrupted blood yet, i do have the unnatural instict. So rn i just need to craft or maybe search the market for the quiver
So, I've been spamming alterations on a bow for days now trying to hit attack speed and dot multiplier together.

Here's a quick video on how to finish the perfect bow for Toxic Rain if you finally hit it. (I know, I could get more attack speed)
