(3.12) Toxic Rain + Caustic Arrow | 5-10m Sirus DPS | Fast + Durable | 50c Budget/SSF Uber Elder

Where does the ES scaling for this build come from? I'm seeing videos of characters with 5k ES. I'm not seeing how you get close to that high, but I'm probably missing something.
Life is short. Deal with it.
How come I followed the steps and had a RARE Bow with only +2 and crafted CANNOT ROLL ATTACK MODS and I used the FARRIC WOLF ALPHA on it and it came out with added fire damage instead of the +1 and +2????? Nice followed guide and lost an ex.

Sounds like a bug. They messed around a lot with the tags this league.
Awesome build and guide, nice and smooth clearing.

After bow, what would be main priority for big upgrade? Would it be worth it to get an awakened void manipulation before they increase in price?

Yeah let's blame the guide for the fact that GGG messed with crafting (and a lot of other stuff too, like curses not working how they should). Added fire damage is an attack mod, so if it rolls despite "cannot roll attack modifiers" then it means GGG fucked up and the affix isn't working.
Hey, I am strongly considering running this as my league start (console pleb here so not till Wednesday). Putting together a list of gems I need for leveling and curious what I should do for my 4th link between level 8 and 31.

My three link is TR-VM-MA, but the next one I want at level 18 is Vicious Projectiles but as a shadow I won't have access to that until the library quest if I decide to do that or more likely Lilly in Act 6. So with that unavailable what is a good 4th link until I get access to the two level 31 gems Swift Affliction and Efficicy?

I see a lot of people using Concentrated Effect but is our dot area damage or does that just scale the pod popping damage (but making the pods hit less mobs). I was thinking damage on full life but unfortunately we don't have access to that one either as a shadow so doesn't solve anything

I apologize if this has been discussed elsewhere just wanted to get an idea, I was kind of leaning Onslaught but wondered what other people did assuming I can even get a 4l for long enough for this to even matter :)

Poison support. Or Deadly Ailments support. (You getting this in act 2 as shadow). To be fair, 3link is more than enough shredding through act till library.

Anybody have an idea how this compares to the build from Tripolar bear

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcscT0asfP8

He seems to have a Quil Rain as bow which seems very powerful indeed, then going carcass jack too. But the tree also deviates a lot, going down to Wind Dancer etc. So which one is better?

I'm a tooltip warrior, I know, but why, according to this guide this bow:



Is better than this




But I lose like 1k dps in the tooltip

Gem levels are almost always better than flat damage this is especially true after Lv20 in a lot of gems. Just take a look at the BASE difference in TR 20 and 22:
20 Damage Effectiveness 73% Damage Multiplier 72.8% Chaos DPS 285.1
21 Damage Effectiveness 74% Damage Multiplier 74% Chaos DPS 316.2
22 Damage Effectiveness 75% Damage Multiplier 75.2% Chaos DPS 350.6


Also this is a bloom based (DoT) damage build, which your tooltip doesn't really factor well at all.
