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

Decided to record this corrupted unid Chimera run (no idea what the mods were, but it doesnt matter anyway :p):

https://streamable.com/6ft7p

It showcases the poison prolif very nicely imo (on both reg mobs and legion). I died, umm, 3 times (-_-), so, it also shows what happens when you try to run through mobs, without phasing while you miss your SA, lol. And also that 3 yellow beasts at once can somehow one shot you (no idea how I died there).

Small update:

Decided to replace Vile Toxins with Infused Channeling. Infused is slightly better in terms of DPS (around 10k extra damage, nothing interesting) and also provides us 8% less chaos damage from hits taken (what is also ~2% less physical damage taken because of Darkscorn) what is very nice.

I already updated PoB in main post.

Also, decided to run my Tul's Breachstone (what was not selling at all) and recorded vid of it:

Thanks for the build, very fun.

Np, glad you like it :)


So, I wanted to try how viable after the poison prolif changes is this build for farming Monolith's, and well, it is very very viable, I can clear whole legion with no issues.

I decided to record vid of this, here:

Of course, this is balanced setup, without QoTF, ideally you would want Shadows & Dust and QoTF, possibly Dying Sun for farming this, but even on non clear-speed version, it feels great.

With Atziri flask it's enough to keep your life up most of the time. It's obviously not the face-tank type leech (what is anyway dead since leech changes, outside of instant leech or lgoh). But for mapping and sustain on bosses, it is enough.

Hi! so far I'm having a blast with it! its brutal! tough Im having a little hard time agains bosses in general, it takes me too much effort to kill them, im not sure if I did something wrong or maybe is my setup? could you take a look into it?

also thanks for your dedication in this guide! its amazing!
For anyone wondering if this build works with Legion or w/e content. This is one of the most powerful yet cheap builds Ive played so far. I put very little currency into my ranger and its by far one of the strongest.
Now that they enabled on kill effects on legion, this thing just melt everything. My bottle neck atm is stash space.

Hello,

yeah, atm you are missing few important pieces. Curse on hit do not works with Blink Arrow (unless you jump right at the boss with the damage part of it, but the minion is not cursing), and also you do not have Frenzy setup for bosses too. Check the no maloney's section in PoB. What I am using atm is Frenzy + CoH + Despair setup, to maintain both frenzy and despair and I just dropped Steelskin completely for now, because I do not have space for it on action bar. On some bosses, Despair is huge, because we do not have many ways to reduce enemy chaos resistance, so it makes really really huge difference on bosses what have plenty of it.

Everything else should be about positioning. Just make sure you are never shooting against the wall with SA, and that you are hitting both your secondary and primary projectiles. E.g, stand between boss and wall, most of time time, if boss is near wall, just hug the wall from other side, even at cost of taking some extra damage, otherwise killing it will take ages.

Looking at your profile, you went with more clear speed oriented version, that looks pretty nice. I was thinking about switching back to QoTF on mine (actually, with very similar setup as you have, Voidwalkers are great idea as well), to farm some Glacials (as I really feel like I am missing just tiny bit of movespeed to clear it comfortably) but I already invested into 6l Kintsugi, so I am probs just going to save rest for Maloney's. I am really glad you like the build :)

Is there a cheaper 6l body that I could use? I'm new to PoE and 5 exalted is something I don't know how to get. Also just wanted to point out, it's Wind dancer not Wild dancer.
