[3.12] Scourge Arrow Poison Prolif Pathfinder - Fast, tanky, easy and fun to play, beginner friendly

I am always tempted to put 6L crawler with The Coming Calamity. Is it bad idea? Why? I mean I get that you loose having good armor piece perks, but wouldn't with all that chaos damage you have crawler deal additionally same? For bossing should be awesome.
Are the gems in the PoB or the ones in the lvl38 section the end-gems? Some of the auras and such switch, which I assume is do as you can after level 38?

I just crafted this bow. Instead of a prefix for Chaos dam multi, it got +2 lever gems. Should I recraft or keep it bro? I think it good, right?

You can chec by yourself, but after all the hoag nerfs hoag without additional minion-focused scaling isnt really doing damage.

The leveling section is focused on optimal gems during leveling what are not necessary optimal endgame links so you should follow w/e is in pob after you are done with leveling.

Its decent yes, you can just craft attack speed suffix instead and it should be good enough. The +2 to bow gems is basically dead affix but better than nothign and you got rest of the important mods anyway.

Potential future build update:

So with alternate qualities i was experimenting with dropoing wither totems completely as Withering Step can inflict 11 wither stacks with enhance at 21/20 with alt qual. With Eternal Suffering on top and maybe Withering Touch on Blink Arrow we can reach 15 stacks consistently and almost instantly on every boss without any totems or sacrificing more than 1 or 2 gem links (as enhance is good also for plague bearer alt qual so we want it anyway, and withering step is good by itself).

Here is my experimental pob with proposed links:

I am going to experiment with it on my char i am leveling atm and see how it goes. This will greatly simplify whole setup (less buttons pressed, more automation, no totems) so I think it will be good change.

What is Eternal Suffering?

EDIT: also in light that Darkscorn now costs 5.5ex, it is cheaper to craft rare?

Cluster jewel notable.

Yes it is way cheaper to craft rare, lik 100c or so with fossils.

getting the wither totem out would be nice and open up for new gems or more link yeah

been following the build for a few leagues now, always happy to come back on it :)

i'm testing the alt gems too atm, so far got myself

-Spell Totem : +duration (up ~10sec or 13+ if alt qual on both totem support)
-Whitering step : +2 stacks
-Vile toxins : poison faster (for when or if i switch for more dmg)
-HoAg : chance to wither

couldn't afford Scourge+2, Plague bearer-10% Mirage archer+2 proj or Blood rage +frenzy on unique yet (gets up to 4% with enhance)

defo some interesting combos to try
(still debating for added chaos with chaos pen)

Got a decent upgrade on bow I think? Should I continue to craft a better one with more attack speed?

seems like with the upcoming nerf to alert level from killed guardians, this build can jump into the league.
