[3.12] PoE Heist Assassin Blade Vortex Shadow Endgame Build

  • + Insanely Fast mapping - whirling blades for movement and unleash support for smooth mapping
  • + Single Target GOD - demolishes metamorphs in seconds
  • + Tons of dodge and evasion
  • + Good regen via Diadem
  • - Scales with some uniques and high end gear
  • - It's a dodge build
  • - Some map mods feel bad. 

Try avoid running 60% chance to avoid bleed and poison maps, as the damage on bosses and metamorphs just isn't great. Phys reflect is doable but slow, same as 90% chance to avoid ailments.



POISON - Blade Vortex is the best way to stack a high number of poisons on a target. With no limits in how many poisons you can apply at one time, you can expect some very strong damage ramp up (If your target has enough life to withstand more than a few seconds of the damage)

ELUSIVE - Increases your dodge and movement speed. This keeps you alive. If you feel you need 100% uptime you can easily integrate Withering step to gain permanent elusive. I don't feel I need it at this stage, but it's an option.

5L Trap and Mine Damage

6L Awakened Added Lightning Damage

3L Setup: Flame Dash - Faster Casting - Portal

Leveling Tips

VERY IMPORTANT: Build & guide is set up as a low life ES based miner. For leaguestart or leveling, it is MUCH better to do a life version. Ignore ES nodes, pick up some extra life nodes and go for life rolls on gear.

Explosive Trap super early and then icicle mines for Act 1. (Or can do w/e you want honestly).

At level 12/merveil grab arc and link them with blastchain mine support, trap and mine damage, and swift assembly.

At level 28 grab ball lightning and make sure to replace or throw in a slower projectiles.

[3.12] PoE Heist Shadow Pyroclast | Icicle | Ball Lightning All Miner Saboteur Build

  • + Incredible Boss killer - even on a budget
  • + Quick Mapping Speed
  • + Can do any map mod without worry
  • + Has insane gear scaling
  • + Very high survival with multiple defensive layers
  • + Very good at clearing league mechanics 
  • - Mines may not be a playstyle for everyone
  • - TOO strong. No seriously, if you gear this out you will feel every other build is incredibly weak.
Gems Setup

Pyroclast (body)

This is the setup that you will want to use at league start until you get your gear up and running for Icicle. The clear on Pyro is sub par, but the single target is second to none and it will help you get over the boss hump early on.

Pyroclast Mine > Trap and Mine Support > Swift Assembly > Conc Effect > Combustion > Fire Pen

Icicle Links (body)

Icicle Mine > Trap and Mine Support > Swift Assembly > Pierce Support OR Chain / Hypothermia > Controlled Destruction > Empower/Inspiration

Hypothermia is for single target, Pierce/Chain for clear speed - try out both and see which you prefer. Use Empower if and only if you can afford a lvl4, otherwise use Inspiration.

Ball Lightning

Ball Lightning > High Impact Mine > Swift Assembly > Slower Proj > Trap and Mine > Controlled Destruction/Inspiration/Light Pen/ Woke Added Lightning

Cast When Damage Taken

CWDT > Immortal Call

Golem + Portal

Chaos Golem > Portal

The minion is pretty worthless IMO, and can be other things, but does provide another target for things to hit from time to time.

Movement Setup (boots/helm/gloves)

Flash Dash > Faster Casting > Arcane Surge > Second Wind

Low Life Auras (shield and weapon)

Blood Magic > Clarity> Precision >

Blood Magic will be as high as you can get it, probably 16-17 and clarity will be level 4-5 and precision will be level 1.

In your shield (prism guardian) you will want to run

Disciple > Wrath/Hatred/Anger > Zealotry

In your boots/gloves or helm you will want to reserve the following on mana:

Blasphemy Support > Enfeeble > Skitterbots > Enlighten level 3

Also on mana, you will want to reserve:

Aspect of the Spider (ring/boots/belt)

A few notes here:

The reservation wheel is needed to get to the 12% reduced. If you have it on gear (helm/boots) then you can drop a node or two.

CI Auras

Blasphemy Support > Enfeeble > Skitterbots > Enlighten level 3/4

Aspect of the Spider (ring/boots)

Free CWDT additional setup with blind. Make sure to socket clarity level 1 if using a clarity watchers eye.

Shadow Trickster

[3.12] PoE Heist Trickster Essence Drain Shadow Cheap Build

[3.12] PoE Heist Shadow Toxic Rain Trickster Starter Build | Fast Mapping | 50c Budget


[3.12] PoE Heist Trickster Essence Drain Shadow Cheap Build

  • + Fast mapper
  • + All endgame bosses viable, including deep delve bosses.
  • + Hardcore viable
  • + Cheap, clear upgrade path. Shaper 3EX, uber elder 8EX.
  • - Single target lacks, you are not oneshoting bosses.
  • - You are a meta slave
  • - Performs really poorly in the timeless domain
  • - Requires heavy swaps for HoGM (but can actually do it)
  • - potentially clunky 1-2 playstyle (altho very fast)


Essence Drain - Swift Affliction - Void Manipulation- Empower - Controlled Destruction - Efficacy

There is no variation when it comes to essence drain. You should push for a 6l as soon as possible and buy a level 3 empower. If you only have a level 1 or 2 empower but you have a 6l, you should use Decay support instead


Vaal Discipline - Malevolence - Enlighten - Flame Dash

You should put your auras in your helmet because vertex gives +1 level of socketed gems. This means you will only need a level 3 enlighten instead of 4. It will also give a slight damage and ES boost by leveling your auras more.


Contagion - Increased Area of Effect - Intensify - Faster Casting

If you use an es base gloves, you should put your Contagion setup here for ease of coloring. Intensify and area of effect supports are mandatory to make contagion's aoe massive. Faster casting is a nice quality of life boost.


Wither - Spell Totem - Multiple Totems - Increased Duration

I recommend placing a 3l wither totem here. Don't use blight totems, it's lower range, worse hinder and takes a jewel slot. It's a noob trap. Wither doubles our damage against anything that stands 2 seconds in the wither circle, it should be used against endgame bosses.

For your 4th socket, if you do not have aspect of the spider on a piece of gear, you should use flesh and stone in sand stance: Flesh and Stone

If you have aspect of the spider, you have a free socket.

You should put a Phase Run inside. In your skills bar, bind phase run to your left click button to trigger it automatically when you start moving.

Body armor

Vaal Blight - Controlled Destruction - Efficacy - Void Manipulation - Swift Affliction - Infused Channelling

Here you have some choice. For more damage, the best option is blight:

A CwdT setup is also viable with the following gems:

CWDT - Summon Stone Golem - Spirit Offering - Enfeeble - Steelskin

If you do not have aspect of the spider on a piece of gear, you should use flesh and stone in sand stance


Path of Building Link

t16 viable setup: https://pastebin.com/zz1Rzjf4

2-4Ex - 6500ehp - 520k ED dps + 900k blight dps

All content setup: https://pastebin.com/Mc8bpMwG

10-15Ex - 7500ehp - 1M ED dps + 1.2M blight dps

Endgame setup: https://pastebin.com/kTRvetrj

100Ex - 8600ehp - 3M ED dps + 4M blight dps


[3.12] PoE Heist Shadow Toxic Rain Trickster Starter Build | Fast Mapping | 50c Budget

  • + Can run every map mod
  • + Survivable with 7k+ EHP, 45k Ev, 50/75 Spell Dodge
  • + Great Damage
  • + Entry gear is very cheap
  • - DOT build, so a slight ramp up for max DPS
  • Some people don't enjoy hybrid


Build Mechanics

Toxic Rain: Toxic Rain shoots out a base 5 arrows (pods). Pods can stack, so area of effect is somewhat important. Attack speed is massively important in terms of DPS and enjoyment.


With flasks up, we sit at a comfortable 45k Evasion to cap our QOTF, and 50/75 dodge/spell dodge. This means we rarely get hit, and when we do, we proc Ghost Shroud.


Main Link

Toxic Rain - Mirage Archer - Void Manipulation - Vicious Projectiles - Swift Afflictions/Efficacy - Empower Level 4 - Efficacy

For your offhand:

Caustic Arrow - Mirage Archer - Greater Multiple Projectiles - Swift Afflictions - Vicious Projectile - Void Manipulations


Flesh and Stone - Malevolence - Discipline - Enlighten

You can grab reduced mana reservation off the tree if you want to force Blood and Sand, but I'd recommend just not bothering until you get a strong enough enlighten. You can consider running Dread Banner if you have a low enough mana cost on Toxic Rain/Caustic Arrow, but don't have Enlighten. You may also want to use a level 1 Clarity somewhere else in your gear. This will give you access to Clarity mod Watcher's Eye, and Vaal Clarity which can help with early bossing.

Wither Totem

Spell Totem - Multiple Totems - Faster Casting - Wither

We already have quite a bit of duration, so faster casting helps us build quicker.

IC + Blink Arrow

CWDT - Steelskin, Clarity - Blink Arrow - Faster Attacks - Culling Strike

I've been trying out CWDT Steelskin, and I think I like it so far. Play around with it and see how it feels. We also put Frenzy and Blink Arrow here linked with Faster Attacks and Cull. 


Dash - Second Wind - Curse On Hit - Despair - Withering Step


30 points -> 50 points -> 70 points -> 90 points -> Full
