PoeCurrencyBuy Date: Sep/13/19 09:35:22 Views: 1006

We saw that in 3.8, GGG made some changes to the poison, which made many players who had never played poisons interested in it. However, poison is a unpopular mechanics, you can refer to this guide to complete your own build. This PoE 3.8 Cobra Lash Assassin Poison Build is WIP.

Skill Tree

Ascendancy: Noxious Strike -> Toxic Deilvery -> Mistwalker -> Opportunistic

Bandit: Kill All

Passive Tree & PoB

Perfect Agony - You need only 5 points to get it. So I leave this Keystone for a personal preferences, you can put out small HP/Jewel or Crit chance and multi on the Claw wheel at any time. And depending on when you have Coralito's. !!!!!

Gems Setup

CHEST (6link)

Cobra Lash or Venom Gyre + Greater Multiple Projectiles + Added Chaos Damage + Deadly Ailments + Vile Toxin + Unbound Ailments

This is the optimal setup, it leaves us with some hit damage thanks to Chaos Damage and Vile Toxin. On endgame, I recommend using Venom Gyre (I will make a separate entry about it in the build)

Auras(4 link)

Aspect of Spider 25% From the Gloves or other item.

Precision (lvling up depend on the free mana we have left)

Temporal Chains + Blasphemy 35% or Free from amulet - Temporal Chains has priority under Despair or Skitterbots

Last Slot and Aura on late game:

Despair 35% - We use when we have an amulet for free Temporal Chains and we need the possibility of applying additional Curse thanks to the oil we can get Whispers of Doom on our Amulet, or Corrupt also on the amulet.

Skitterbots - Same as with Despair, use when we have an amulet for free Temporal Chains. A very nice option, two running bots that impose Shock and Chill on opponents, I checked and really this Shock is effectively applied, practically on most mobs we hit. A really good option very comparable with Despair and thanks to this we can get something different into the amulet

Whirling Blades (4 link)

Whirling Blades + Fortify + Faster Attacks + Blood Magic

CWDT (3 link)

CWDT + Summon Ice Golem + Guard Skill

Herald of Agony(early game) Utility (late game)(4 link)

Herald of Agony + Damage on Full Life + Minion Damage + Vile Toxin

Herald of agony is brilliant at the beginning on the entry threshold, then it weakens so let's use it as long as we consider or when we get items to complete other recomended Auras

Wihtering Step + Blood Rage + Ancestral Protector + Free Slot for you

Setup when we stop using HoA

Plague Bearer (3 link)

Plague Bearer + Whitering Step/Empower + Increased Area of Effect

Both skill is a complete must be here. Plague Barer seems almost OP, one two use Cobra or Venom and we have full Bearer to start. Whitering is a defensive and offensive, gives phasing, Elusive full buff and 6 stacks of Whitered debuff instantly.

If we stop using HoA, we move Whitering Step to the 4 link and here we add Empower.

*If you prefer, you can give Blood Rage to CWDT and swap 3/4 links. I prefer to start it manually, after that I hate to have Auras in 3 link and start it again after weapon swap.

 

 

Gear Setup

Move the mouse on the bold poe equipment to see more information

Weapon

The Wasp Nest

166% increased Physical Damage
24% increased Attack Speed
24% increased Critical Strike Chance
+347 to Accuracy Rating
20% chance to Poison on Hit
Attacks with this Weapon deal 80-120 added Chaos Damage against
Enemies affected by at least 5 Poisons

Ghoul Thirst Gemini Claw

60% chance for Poisons inflicted with this Weapon to deal 100% more Damage
Can have multiple Crafted Modifiers
115% increased Physical Damage
Adds 17 to 30 Physical Damage
20% increased Attack Speed
22% increased Critical Strike Chance
+16% to Quality

Good to start, at endgame you'll want to make a good Craft here.

Chest

Dendrobate - definitely the best option for DPS, 7-link, more poison damage and duration. But no HP hurts here.

Cherrubim's Maleficence - HP and chaos damage dont need more describe.

Yriel's Fostering - Best Chest for the build (Poison or Bleed option)

Gloves

Fenumus' Weave: Aspect of the Spider is a mousse (you can also have it on the Rare item) but the gloves themselves have a lot for us. At the moment they are very expensive, so it's worth looking for something with Aspect of Spider, plain rare are not expensive, I bought a ring for 5c myself

Shield

Vix Lunaris: Plague Bearer is a very important skill in this build, a real gamechanger. Therefore, a shield that will perfectly bust Pleague Bearer! Give us defences and Freeze Immunity!

Amulet

Maligaro's Cruelty, Solstice Vigil: Good Rare can also be found. At endgame for sure Solstice Vigil is the best option because it will allow us to use an additional Aura.

Helmet/Boots/Belt/Rings

Rare, We supplement Resist, HP, base statistics. of course it's also nice to have offensive stats (chaos damage, # + # physical damage, crit, attack speed etc.).
