Very good build , ed/c is my favorite skill in the game and i decided to try it in LL variation after seeing your build guide and it's the best variation i played by far.
Huge dps / ok survivability / extremely fast / sirus deathless and the stuff is very cheap to craft this league.

I changed a bit the tree to put a cluster jewel for more dps and survivability in maps (looking forward for a second one).
Here my pastebin for those interested : https://pastebin.com/3yFDDti3
Thank you for your input and your options if anyone else is interested.

Yeah there is some things you can do to better up the build of course, it's just a general build guide for building, I don't recommend Mark of the Shaper only because it's a pain in the butt to cap resistances with it, especially capping chaos resistance.

Get some quality on your rings and amulet!! Also get Vaal Blight and Vaal Righteous Fire if possible - the damage is noticeable on monsters that are harder to kill.
Other than that, everything looks very fantastic!

Hi! I probably would not recommend playing this build for SSF to be honest.

As it is still doable, and probably would work fine, some things required like the Empower, or a self found Shavronne's Wrappings, or buying a high level Essence Drain is going to be very difficult, although you could work around these, this makes this build not the best for SSF.
Thank you for the honest answer, but i went a head and level 81 trickster and i do enjoy playing it tho i'm using Bane atm, and i lack single target, i haven't transition yet to drain because of lacking the red gem as you said, any advice on what to farm where to go from here to be stronger?

Thank you.
So after looking at your setup, I believe you should fully change over to Essence Drain at this point, actually; it looks like you already did! How does it feel compared to Bane?
Have you ever tried using a Vaal Blight linked with Infused Channeling or Vaal Righteous Fire?
Maybe you have not found them yet because of SSF.

I recommend you go CI (Chaos Innoculation) - this makes you immune to chaos damage but makes your health 1.
Try to find a high energy shield body armour, maybe one with Evasion on it also would be fantastic, if you can get one 5 or 6 linked.. this would be ideal.
Remove the talent points over by Mind over Matter, and all the health nodes over by Constitution, there is a lot of health nodes, I think I have a 90 CI Pastebin here it is: https://pastebin.com/ARPv7d8q - if you do not have path of building I recommend going here http://poeurl.com/cWih

Since you are now Essence Drain you can remove the talents Hex Master, as well as Whispers of Doom

I don't think you will have enough regrets orbs for the full talent respec as you are playing on SSF, by the looks of the tree you will need at least 30+ regret orbs, you do get some from the story though.

Once you go CI you can drop the Divine Life Flask for a Quartz if you find one. Make sure you get a movement speed modifier on your movement speed flask if you can roll it, that way you are extra fast.
Also make sure you are in sand stance (yellow stance) with Blood and Sand

Let me know how these changes go or what else I can help you with!
Thank you for the guide Havoc. I just started my first ever ED build and man Bane is so much more fluid than ED + Contagion. It's gonna be hard to give that
skill up once i finish act 10.
Hey mate,

This guide is nice, but very beginner friendly? You must be joking. A beginner is not going to have any of the uniqes you recommend, nor the currency to buy. Also, not going to have some of the gems that you mention, nor the idea how to actually get it, and what to do until they acquire it. Why would you recommend a beginner to buy this and that? Game mechanics are already overwhelming enough for new players. If i have not been playing poe for a while, and generally leveled quite a lot of spellcasters, i would have not a single idea about how to properly play this, based on this guide. It IS a good guide. But not beginner friendly.

Hello

I pulled up the Pastebin, however it looks to be a version of one of my pastebins.
I then pulled up your account, you do not have a Trickster character created at all?

You have 4 characters, none which are a Trickster or using Essence Drain, are you asking for a friend, perhaps?

Please clear this up because I need their account name and/or character name to help further.
bonjour, je n'arrive pas a voir les détail du build. tout est crypter quand je clic sur un lien
