[3.12] Power Siphon/Kinetic Blast Poison Assassin - Very fast and tanky poison wander

I hate shield charge... :(

Is there any way this build will still be good with anything OTHER than using it?

It was painful watching your video where you kept getting stuck and giving me bad memories from previous SC builds.
can you post a couple more videos of you mapping and also doing bosses with this build? I know the new gems arent out but maybe you could just use barrage to apply poison or something. You skipped the boss in your only vid which makes me slightly worried.
I just leveled one as assassin and the process was pretty smooth overall

The plague bearer gem is INSANE adds crazy dmg. Would def recommend to others not to forget to use that.

Just looked at the metamorph trailer and it looks like you can choose to spawn the boss wherever you want, so you can spawn it next to a wall then KB it to death. Might play this just to instantly blow up metamorph bosses on every map.

KB doesn't work like that anymore unfortunately.

Used to be you could just use barrage + RAT + Knockback and one tap bosses with a single KB because you put them against a wall or in a corner but they stopped the blasts from stacking up on walls as much unfortunately.

Buuuut, PS + Barrage support (if the numbears bear out to feeling good) pretty much solves that problem. Even on really poor gear I think 2.5M should be doable.
The thing is. When and if you have enough currency and you can get barrage helm +1 proj and dying sun. You still will be doing more damage with just barrage at the endgame. PS is just here to early start.


And kinetic blast explosions still stuck/overlap if you get mobs next to wall. For example when Toxic sewer boss jumps on you next to wall. You don't aim for boss. You aim wall and blow up boos.

Sure, you can always just invest into more movement speed instead and just run around. Someone mentioned QoTF earlier instead of shield charge what sounds like super solid plan too.

I already removed the gear from the char I was testing it on (because it was my poison SA char that I use for showcase in my other build). And the reason why I skipped boss is because there was no point in recording killing it witk KB, I did not even had wither totems on me and KB single target is bad.

I have 2 vids from my tests with Assassin tho if you want more gameplay:

thanks for the vids, assassin looks insane with elusive. Seems like it might be better than pf honestly, although you had issues killing stray rares that i dont think you would have had with pf prolif so idk. if the single target is good then this build looks like it will be insane.
Ok I think im gonna play this build but I cant decide between assassin and pf, the movement speed and elusive buff from assassin seem insane and i think you also get more damage, the only thing pathfinder seems to really do better is the poison proflif from natures reprisal. Which do you think is better?

I would say for league start in bossing league most likely assassin, ass is basically boss killer ascendancy, PF is zoom zoom ascendancy.
