[3.13] Pestilent Strike Pathfinder and comparsion with Viper Strike - vs End Game (PoE) video up



The build idea was Pestilent Strike, but, just for the duration, in single target Viper is better, because you can cumulate more stacks of poison.
Pestilent is a bit better in mapping, cuz the secondadry effect of that skill, but with awakened melee splash and +2 strikes from gloves, also with Viper Strike mapping is good.

ahhh
standard with some legacy stuff. was wondering where all that block chance was coming from, lol.

you're setup for pretty much an insane amount of offense, which is why you have an insane amount of offense. i've been wanting to try out an INSANELY defensive setup with pestilent strike/viper strike pathfinder. just haven't gotten up to doing it yet.

have a pastebin for it though

your setup, again with legacy stuff, looks to be pretty defensive in its own right. looks pretty sweet

only rumi is legacy, but yes, with all flask effect that i've it give me a lot of block.. btw if you want more defence, you can use for example divine flesh keystone or trascendence keystone, buffing armour with flaskes + iron reflex..
so there are few ways to have more defence

"Only Rumis is legacy"?

Wow, how missleading. The Two-Toned Boots are legacy as well as the chest-base. You cannot get that stuff in a league.

Aside from that: Interesting approach with the explode-chest, clearspeed looks nice. I would have gone a different route in terms of rings (keep a prefix and essence-craft it for 40% inc. poison dmg), and you need new weapons, something like those.

mate only Rumi, cuz some res on boots or chest dosen't change your life, but rumi is like double vs the current version so yes is the only thing to consider "legacy" cuz is the only thing that make a bit of difference..

btw, i don't need new weapons like yours, jsut curious about the new base, the implicit is not bad!
about esssence poison damage, i prefer essence chaos damage.
Explody chest is not required, because prolif of poison is enough.. the best in slot could be the unique armour with poison damage and poison duration for dps (forgot its name) or rare armour with frenzy on hit and other good things maybe +1 curse hunter so you can add temporal chain to increase poison duration on enemies


i saw ur gear on ur char, really impressive, but don't take enough poison duration in my opinion.. but for sure with that setup u are really tanky

Poison Duration is a tricky thing. For me the biggest difference between Pestilent Strike and Viper Strike is the way longer duration on VS. For that reason all the faster poisons still leave me around 6 Seconds Poison Duration which is more than enough for me - When we take a look at the feared invitation you don´t have like 9 seconds to just stand there and keep stacking the debuffs, so I prefer faster and more potent poisons. In the end I can basically oneshot Sirus A9 last phase instantly, he can´t teleport away. The dmg is really sick like this.

mine is not a choice between faster poison and duration, I have both
