Thanks for updating to 3.9 Fiver!

I'm a new-ish player and plan to use this build for league.

I'll be sure to follow your Twitch and give some support, especially considering the hard work it must take to update things in such a short period of time! I'm happy to show my appreciation for that.

Cheers!


Awesome! I hope you have fun with it!
It's actually probably a pretty good idea to stop by the twitch channel once or twice if you need help with anything. :)

hey Fiver really loving the build :D

i have 1 question though if you've got the time for it

whats your take on the awakened cold penetration??
ive tried messing around in PoB and switching out hypothermia for it and the DPS seems to be the same although the cold pen% gives us.. well cold pen% :)

does PoB take the cold pen% into calculation of the actual dps??


Awakened Cold Penetration looks insane. And like you say it might replace Hypothermia. But I need to do some testing first. We had the same thoughts last league regarding Nightblade, and I suggested Nightblade instead of Hypothermia during league start.
But I decided to revert the change. which caused a lot of confusion, so I'm going to be conservative with changing this one before launch.
PoB does take penetration into account though.



Don't panic.
BUILD UPDATED!

Items wrote:
Maim still might be available on body armours, just not from fossils, but until further notice I have removed it from the build.
Elemental penetration on weapon is nerfed.
Watcher's Eye is probably not going to be something that we'll see a lot of, so I've removed it from the build.
Shaper's Touch are probably gonna be slightly more expensive than previous leagues, but since they are such a common drop from shaper, I don't think they'll be super expensive.
There are new modifiers on items that will likely mean that more items will be replaced though. This is something that I'm going to have to change during the league.
Mark of the Elder might turn out to be very expensive, so that's something that I will have to look over. I have removed it from the budget version.

Ruthless is replaced with Melee Physical Damage. Or more specifically the awakened version of it. It will give us a lot of damage, but also intimidate, which makes it better than ruthless.
Hypothermia might be replaced by Awakened Cold Penetration. This is something that I haven't tested yet, but until you have the Awakened version, Hypothermia will be better.
The damage from the awakened gems are not accounted for in this PoB, so the DPS output will be a lot higher than the displayed values when you have them.

Multi-modding isn't going to be as good this league, which means it's going to be harder to get good claws. How hard it's going to be, and what effect this will have on the build remains to be seen.

There are new modifiers that may cause changes in the itemization. A +1 to power charges modifier has been shown on helmets, which leads me to believe that there is a similiar modifier for frenzy charges. Depending on what item this modifier can be rolled on, we will likely be changing more stuff.


I will be streaming during league-start, so if you encounter problems or need help with anything, the fastest way for you to get help is to ask me on stream, because I will likely not be checking the forums when I'm playing.

Hey, thanks for the build and updates!

Wanted to ask your opinion on the importance of using a claw and when to pick weapon specific nodes. I tried a test run in SSF and rushed to act 10 Kitava, I just dual wielded whatever strongest weapons I could use.
Thanks for this thorough guide!
Always wanted to try out frost blades. Will start metamorph league with it.

Until you reach the claw nodes in the passive tree, there's really no point in limiting yourself to claws. I often do the same. If I find a cool sword when I'm leveling, it's much better to just pick it up and use it, and then swap to claws when you reach the claw cluster.
When you can get Soul Raker, I really advise switching to a claw though.

I hope you enjoy it! Don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.


Don't panic.
I am starting my stream in 10 minutes

I will likely not spend much time here on the forums when my stream is live, so come and ask me stuff there if you need help!

Good luck in the new league everyone!!


Don't panic.
