Hey guys,
i like the build pretty much. it does exactly what i wanted it to do. clear tier 14+ maps very fast for a very low investment. but im struggeling with single target dps. i also dont get completly what stats we scale the best. Is it poisen or chaos dot or phys?
Which improvement i can do with the EQ for not too much $$$?
I am switching ring and chest with my main champ. But dex boom chest is on the way.

Cheers





Hi, well, i would definitely start with upgrading your wand, it has good phys, but rest of the mods are awful, its definitely fairly easy to finish with harvest (try attack speed etc).

Also,carnage heart is not amazing, look at my current amulet for example, something like that is very close to bis, and somewhat craftable (you might be able to find some base for fairly cheap and just finish it with harvest too).

For boots, I don't see tailwind there :p Power Siphon with Barrage support attacks fairly slow, so you want to prioritize that, bossing will then feel a lot better.

Also, you are missing despair, get it either on gloves or on your ring, its very important (ring is again harvest craftable easily).

For belt, really try to get stygian, and try to get blind on hit abyss jewel.

Another boost for single target would be malevolence unaffected by poison + golden rule.

And start looking at building cluster jewel tree instead of default one, you lose some survivability but the damage will skyrocket.


And for general scaling, well, stats you are looking for on your gear is flat phys, flat chaos, dot multi, attack speed, inc chaos damage, poison damage, poison duration.

EDIT:

Oh also, try to get helmet with enchant and - chaos res (either power siphon enchant, or KB enchant, both are fine really).

Also get lvl 21 power siphon asap, its 1 extra projectile. Also get woke gems, they cost literally nothing, and even 1/20 woke gems are insane DPS boost.

Thx mate. You defenetly need those infos in your guide on the 1st page. After reading it, i wasnt totaly sure you understand your own build completly, but after this answer i am.
Looks like i need alot more AS, didnt believe that this build scale with it so much.

Thx for the answer
cheers
You can get away with a very mediocre wand for a long time, by investing in flat +chaos damage upgrades instead. Which I found to be a lot cheaper for starting. So grab the woke support gems, get the power siphon projectiles count high. Get the despair curse setup. Get the Aul's for free envy (+chaos dmg).

I used a wand with: poison mod, T2 crit%, crafted attack speed to clear the game (A8 sirus / shaper). One struggles at the top end with single target, but kinetic blast is just such an MVP for clearing so even red maps are easy enough apart from the boss.

I have now just upgraded my wand by getting insanely lucky with crafting, and just want to show it off:



A nice quality of life upgrade is also an explode chest, which you can then upgrade to +1 curse (and then grab temporal chains on hit for your belt).

I struggled with int initially, and then decided to craft a rare shield with just +int and mass resists. Which is almost trivial to craft this league:


This then free's up other slots to be more flexible.
@thedeathbeam Hi Man,

Got one question - Could you "create" BIS wand for this build?

I have tons of currency and lookin to craft it, just not sure about mods.

Thanks in advance man.

Isnt better to hit T1 CHAOS FLAT instead of that 27 to 49 Physical dmg?

Nah, I pobbed t1 flat chaos vs that and that wand was best (by around 5% over 2nd best option, what was just t1 phys + t1 as etc without tacati). Phys is more valuable because of stuff like unholy might and assassin phys as extra chaos.

I have all possible combination of good mods wands here so you can check by yourself (in items section):
