[3.16] Storm Brand Build | Assassin | Scourge | Path of Exile 3.16

Hey guys, here is storm brand build. Using void batteries and badge of the brotherhood. There are a lot of builds with this setup. I wanted to play storm brand because I like brand playstyle. Badge of the Brotherhood has a unique mod that "Your Maximum Frenzy Charges is equal to your Maximum Power Charges". So we can have 10 power and frenzy charges.

Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex

Power Charges: Playing with 10 power charges
- Overcharge, Instability, Infused (Skill Tree), +3 Power Charge
- Unstable Infusion (Ascendancy), +1 Power Charge
- 2x Void Battery, +2 Power Charge
- Helmet (Warlord mod), +1 Power Charge

Thread of Hope: Large ring

Glorious Vanity: Doryani to get Corrupted Soul keystone.

Build Video: https://youtu.be/xZpJex68Aro

Bandits: Help Alira

- Holy Conquest: No longer has “Brands Attach to a new Enemy each time they Activate, no more than once every 0.3 seconds”, it now has 25% increased Brand Damage and Brands have 25% increased Area of Effect if 50% of Attached Duration expired.

You may run into some problems after the changes.

Problem: Transcendent Flesh now only gives 14% Crit multiplier in that socket.

Solution: Remove it. (GGG style) Use a rare jewel with inc life, crit multi, attributes, res if needed.

Problem: Thread of Hope doesn't provide the nodes we want. (Not worth using for just one node.)

Solution: Replace it with a rare jewel.

(Footage is from 3.15)

Yo thanks for the build guide! Build looks pretty good with the given budget.

How would you recommend to craft your rings? (with flat lightning per power charge mod)

let me know if you do an updated guy with the new 3.16 tree please

Badge just allows you to have the same amount of frenzy charges power charges. You still need a way to generate those. The build uses a chest that has "10% chance to gain frenzy charge on hit". This can only roll on redeemer influenced chests.
