[3.9]Hasunic's Toxic Rain Trickster - Level 8 Awakener defeated/Aul/Uber Elder/Mastermind

Hello everyone. I wanted to share my build from this league.
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 - 04/01-2020) https://pastebin.com/KKqdQPy6
I've started using Thread of Hope and I've allocated 4 points. I've added this to my amulet allocation to make it fit, and thus 4 points are missing from the total

Gear with heavy description and how to craft
Spoiler

Chest
Spoiler

Use Queen of The forest as start


Craft a Sadist Garb or Carnal Armour with a Dense Fossil




Helmet
Spoiler
Use The Vertex, it is best in slot.



Bow
Spoiler
A perfect bow have Attack speed(12-18%), 35% damage over time multi and + 1 gems, then crafted +2 support gems and +40% chaos damage over time
My Bow is decent, but not the best.


You can craft a cheap bow by using Imperial Legacy

and crafting with Corroded + Metallic + Prismatic fossil
, This ensures that you can only roll + gem level prefixes


Quiver:
Spoiler

Hunter Influence, Life, Attack Speed, Chaos dot multi, dot multi.

Can be Crafted with Aberrant + Pristine + Sanctified Fossil



Belt:
Spoiler
Stygian Belt with Life, Resistances, Energy Shield and Chaos Damage
Can be crafted with Aberrant + Pristine + Sanctified Fossil(you will not get energy shield with pristine)



Boots
Spoiler
Atziri's Step

Good enchants: Attack speed or Life/mana regen


Gloves
Spoiler
Elder: Life, Energy Shield, Resistances, Chaos damage over time multiplier, Attack Speed
27-12-2019 Quick addition: It might be better to roll Hunter gloves, due to the modpool that they have.


Rings and Amulets
Spoiler

Rings: Life, Resistance, Hybrid Templemod (Mana + -6/8 manacost), Mana Regen, Energy Shield and crafted minimum frenzy charges

Amulet:(Hunter influenced): Life, Energy Shield, +1 Active Chaos gem / dexterity Gems, Chaos Damage over time, minimum frenzy charges



Flasks
Spoiler


Use a Jade Flask if you are using Queen of The Forest
Use the Enduring Mana flask when you are running maps without regen
Be immune to: Bleed, Freeze and Curse


Jewels
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.

Watcher's eye
Clarity - Extra ES from mana
Malevolence - Extra Chaos Damage over time multiplier

I tried this Discipline mod, with ES on Hit and I don't gain that much to be honest, but I don't want to change it now..

Get a "Corrupted blood cannot be inflicted upon you" if you can





Leveling tree + Gear Advice
Spoiler

Gear Advice
- Get a early 3Green link as possible. Use Caustic Arrow + Mirage Archer + Void Manipulation
- 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

Passive Trees
Spoiler

31 Points
Spoiler

51 points
Spoiler

63 points
Spoiler

91 points
Spoiler

Don't spec into Melding if you have Unnatural Instinct


After 91 points
Spoiler

At this point you should spec down to Harrier and start speccing Jewel Sockets and Energy shield nodes( Void Barrier + Unnatural Calm + Arcane Focus)
If you lack Life / Mana regen while leveling, you can spec into Shaper and Constitution

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)
