[3.16] DW-Dagger Poison Cobra Lash Assassin | LEAGUE STARTER

INTRO
_________________________________________________________________________________


IMPORTANT!
This is my first Build I created. Don't judge me to hard.

short introduction to my person
Hey guys, I'm Fenaril. I started playing PoE in September 2019. In this league I played as a Frostblade Champ and had a break. Now I've been playing again for a few months, have tried various builds and leveled countless chars. Now I want to revive an old build to learn working with PoB and Thread creation.

I apologize for every linguistic error I make in this guide. I'm not very good in English but have tried my best and partly worked with the translator of google.

I'm also a German-speaking streamer on twitch and there will be a lot coming to
this build soon.


When did I start building the build?
I started on the 22nd Nov. 2021.
Day #1: Created first Tree in PoB (checked old guides)
Day #2: Started with the Thread and check some Equipment
Day #3: Started Shadow on other Account to test it out
Day #4 & 5: Playing other games :D
Day #6: PoB work completed and attached to the thread. | published the thread (27th Nov. 2021)


Why Cobra Lash?
The skill is at the moment underestimated in my opinion and I can't find any up-to-date or with good explanation Build(3.16).
Also I can learn how to work with PoB and have a Project I can work on.

Might have to give this a go. I have recently discovered cobra lash is it has become my favorite attack in the game. I have been working on a PF version that’s mid 70s atm. Haven’t checked the pob since I’m on my phone but Assassin with perfect agony may be fun
Was hoping that someone managed to come up with a decent build for CL, but since OP hasn't updated I'll leave my take here.

Been playing Assassin CL/VG since 3.13 up to this point, improving my build little by little, currently this requires a high investment, 50ex+ and possibly even more, already spent around 100ex (possibly more, lost track) and it's bad for this kind of investment.

Noxious Strike lost its 30% DoT multiplier and the 5% Poison Duration has been limited to 100% (so 20 stacks max) and Toxic Delivery lost 25% more damage for poisons inflicted by crits, currently it's hard to recover the lost damage.

Flasks also got massively nerfed and CL/VG had a heavy reliance on flasks such as Coralito's (huge nerf on this one) and Whichfire Brew Stibnite (not so much on this one), so another source of damage gone.

The introduction of Spell Suppression also means that now you'll have to spend passive points on them instead of damage/attack speed, it's a good defense mechanism, better than the previous spell dodge, but having to spend extra points on it hurts damage wise, or you'll have to make up for it with gear mods, without Spell Suppression you'll get wrecked.

Now both CL/VG shine with STR stack jugg, Pathfinder is another option since you can make use of Master Toxicist for poison proliferation during flask to clear packs and focus most of the gems for single target dps, maybe try Bino's on Assassin for the poison proliferation but you'll have to make up for the loss of attack speed and Chaos Damage.

Gonna keep my eye on this build tho, maybe OP can find something useful ^^
Pff, who even plays Standard?

You can't link plague bearer with anything that increases %dmg like conc effect or void manip, also why second wind? Usally PB is linked to Inc aoe and empower.
