Recommended Shadow Builds

 

Shadow Assassin Builds

POE 3.5 Shadow Assassin Molten Strike Build (PC,XBOX,PS4)- Fast Life Recovery, Cheap, Tankly

This is a poison build that used to clear Shaper/Elder and all of their Guardians on a budget (see gear section). Uber Elder is also possible, though requires better gear.

Gems Setup

6 Link: Molten Strike - Added Chaos Damage - G. Multiple Projectiles - Multistrike - Ancestral Call - Deadly Ailments

The first five gems are pretty much required to have, Deadly Ailments is the best DPS gem we have left.

Level 21 Added Chaos Damage is very desirable because it's the main source of base damage

A 6-link is very important for your damage, as the final link is another 60% bonus.

Recommend getting a Tabula Rasa or 6-linked rare item for a cheap start.

Volkuur's Version 

Replace Added Chaos Damage for Immolate because it has higher numbers (you can ignite with critical strikes).

Frost Blades 

Frost Blades - Added Chaos Damage - Chain - Multistrike - Ancestrall Call - Damage on Full Life

If you want, you can try out Frost Blades It produces less lag than MS and has better area coverage, but significantly worse single target damage.

The gem colours are the same as Molten Strike, so you can easily swap between both skills. Threshold jewels are not needed.


4 Link: Shield Charge - Fortify - Faster Attacks, Arctic Armour

As Movement Skill I highly recommend Shield Charge, as it's more precise than Whirling Blades and costs less mana.

With Fenumus' Weave, these gems have to be in the gloves because every other setup would support Aspect of the Spider, increasing the mana reservation.

Volkuur's Version

Replace Arctic Armour for Anger for some extra fire damage.


4 Link: Spell Totem - Wither - Increased Duration - Faster Casting

The totem pretty much doubles our damage and should only be used in bossfights. The Hinder debuff does not stack with Aspect of the Spider, but overwrites it for a stronger effect instead.


4 Link: Cast When Damage Taken (level 1) - Immortal Call (level 3) - Increased Duration - Enfeeble (level 5)

Just the usual IC/Curse setup to protect you.

Note that you can use any curse you prefer, but Enfeeble is the most defensive.


3 Link: Herald of Agony - Pierce - Minion Damage

Adding support gems to the Agony Crawler will increase you mana reservation to a total of 85%, which is still fine.

If that's too low for you, you can swap Minion Damage for Additional Accuracy (which doesn't have a mana multiplier).

Note that the Crawler starts extremely strong, but falls off the further you progress through maps

A level 21 Crawler with 40 stacks will end up dealing ~120k single target DPS, which makes it sufficient for packs, but relatively weak against bosses. If that's not enough for you, feel free to consider another setup

Level 21 on the Herald is highly recommended, as is 20% quality.


3 Link: Cast When Damage Taken - Summon Lightning Golem - Blood Rage

Both of these buffs boost our attack speed. Blood Rage can be sustained with our life regeneration, so it actually helps survivability by increasing our hit rate.

These gems are on CWDT because I'm too lazy to activate them myself (Blood Rage is instant so you could also manually activate it if you want).

POE 3.5 Shadow Assassin Starter Rain of Arrows Build (PC,XBOX,PS4)- High Clear Speed, Cheap, All Map Mods

This build choose Rain of Arrows to get good aoe. Rain of Arrows is a ranged attack skill that fires a number of arrows in the air, with each of them landing to deal area of effect over a short period of time. And players don’t need too high a budget to get a good start in the league , more importantly£¬it's end game viable.

Gems Setup

Listed in order of importance.

Single target: Barrage-Added Chaos Damage-Greater Multiple Projectiles-Withering Touch-Deadly Ailment-Vicious Projectile

Clear:

Rain of Arrows- Added Chaos Damage- Mirage Archer – Deadly Ailments- Vicious Projectile- (Vile Toxins)

Note: Toxic rain is a viable alternative, but it is a bit slow to apply life gain on hit part, which can be dangerous in some situation.

Actually you don't need a 6 link Rain of Arrow to kill trash mobs, 5 links is fine.

Herald of Agony setup:

HoAg – Minion Damage- Vicious Projectile- Faster Attack

Note: No greater multiple projectile, the mana multiplier is just too much.

Cast on Damage Taken : CoDT – Immortal Call – Enfeeble – Chaos Golem

Utility setup: Phase run – Blink Arrow- Arctic Armour- Whatever you like (Decoy Totem?)

 

Shadow Saboteur Builds

POE 3.5 Shadow Saboteur Starter ARC Mine Build (PC,XBOX,PS4)- High Speed, Cheap, Endgame

For high-tier bossing, perhaps swap Barrage in for Rain of Arrows (not necessary in yellow maps). Rain of Arrows also works very nicely in delves. Alternatively, have Barrage instead of Toxic Rain on a weapon swap.
