[3.12] 🌿Ultimate Claw Poison Pathfinder - League Starter - BONUS Uber Melee (no Wither totem)

Resold my tailwind/elusive boots. Not really suited for this build due too low crit chance, even in larger packs.

Poison faster is better
Back to playing Pestilent Strike for a little while. I do like Pestilent; but it lags my PC so bad. It runs like ass; I dunno what the mechanic difference is, unless its poisons on top of the chaos dot that does it, but its freeze frames at some points; I dont suffer that playing Viper or Cobra. Anyways, I died a couple times trying some new stuff, so I'm back to Pestilent for a while. Its fun to play; just hard for me to enjoy when I'm dropping to single digit frames on explosion.

Also, I tried the 3 Purity/Aul's/Pure Commander thing. I did not like it. You give up a lot of dmg that way. Not only that, my experience was further soured that I died like 20 seconds into the first map with that build; some random stuff in delirium killed me. So, if I'm still gonna occasionally flop to some random Delirium stuff, I dont see the point in giving up 45% of my damage. Because that is what you sacrifice to run double clusters and 3 purities. About 45% of your damage. I gave it a shot; spent some currency on it, but in the end, I did not like it. Offense is a better defense to me. Kill it and move on, not tank it.

I had to check it, though. It sounded promising to me. But just normal mapping I could already tell it was gonna be kinda meh in an orb'd map so I didnt even waste my time on that. Just respec'd back to normal. Just my thoughts on giving that triple purity/Aul's build a go. Its a noticeable damage loss, and I dont think it protects you from a lot of the stuff delirium does.

Edit: I didnt even know that existed Redvex, lol. I'm gonna get me some of those.

That poison mod is juicy. I have triple resists boots so I can't get it :(

I'm looking at micro optimisations for my character and I noticed that if I use "Iron Skin" instead of "Reflexes". It gives me 18% more armour. Am I missing something? Why use a Reflexes flask instead?

Why not try Unspeakable Gifts? It works good enough for me.

Oh ok. Then you can still get Phase Accro if you grab the jewel just over it and use Intuitive Leap.
I'm already using intuitive leap to get

Adamant, Cloth and Chain and Dirty tecnique

Does intuitive leap reach there? I was under the impression you need thread of hope to reach it.

You have 97% iron skin, was your reflexes much lower roll?
So, many asked me about the exploding-chest. For the reminder, this one I used:



My results are the following:

It is not worth it.

First of all, and I can´t believe I am actually saying this - Arctic Armor is missing. The Fire and Phys reduction only works if you are Standing still, but especially in very dense, 5-delirium orb maps or any other juiced maps to 110+ quantity and influence-mobs you actually have to stand at some point to auto, and the additional phys reduction from Arctic armor really comes in handy, which we have to drop if we run this armor.

Second, the damage from the explosions is not really that important. The harder the content the less likely you oneshot everything. When I run Standard t16´s I can just oneshot everything with it, but I did that before with plague bearer + empower 4 + incr. area anyway so there is no point.

We furthermore can´t corrupt it with + Gem Levels (OK well to be perfectly correct we could, but I am not Swimming 500ex+ to corrupt a well rolled double influence chest piece).

There is an upside to it though: If u wear such an armor capping out resistances while wearing a Headhunter is far easier. Then again, since the explos weren´t that impressive, I would suggest a -15 mana +additional curse chest and curse on hit-temp chains as a secondary curse Setup.

The Cest will be available for purchase now at 29ex, I´m returning to perfect form :)
