ok well i have been thru this forum cause the build looks nifty to run just want to double check a couple of things.

So if the coated shrapnel gems don't trigger HoA or give us stacks for Plague Bearer then what is the point of them?

Also if the only way to generate either of those is the Sporeguard then there is no point to either skill unless we get our hands on one?


Coated Shrapnel is there too boost your chance to poison on hit. You could switch it out to anything else if you don't want to use poison. I just find them handy due to the fact that I can have my Plague Bearer up at essentially any time.

Without it, your chance to poison will be quite low, and your Sporeguard explosions will not always poison. That does, as you said it, make Plague Bearer useless.

Any idea why im so squishy ?
I dont have mind over matter , need 6 points to get it , will this make a difference ? right now i have 0 energy shield with the helmet on it only protects mana and im sitting with 1.7k hp ( got sporeguard but i need 2 levels )


Those are some low stats; you need to work on your tree and gear to get some proper sirvivability. You can always compare my PoB to your setup to see where you're lacking stats.

Mind over Matter really does help. 30% of the damage will be taken from your energy shield if you're using the Diadem (that grants Eldritch Battery).

Thanks. That's everything I would ever have hoped for; someone enjoying a non-meta build. :)

I am happy to inform you that the build is Sirus-viable.

Did my first Sirus today ever. Awakener level 5. Died once at the final phase (got stunlocked after my ES got depleted). Other than that it was smooth sailing.

I did record it, but OBS force-fed me an update that now records everything as snapshots (<1 FPS)...

Deathless Sirus video added, which will conclude the showcase for this build.

How well does a +3 Support Gem bow work vs the +3 Bow Skill Gem bow? I just picked one up to try with the self-cast toxic rain build, but this looks interesting too.

Should I just pick up a +3 Bow Skill weapon?
Ok, I've reseted Passive Skill Tree points from my Saboteur and change him to Trickster. After having follow your PoB, it remains 13 points : where can I put them ? ^^
