For your gear, i would suggest going for something similar to mine, where you can have focus-shock, minimum frenzy charge, -mana cost of skills crafted mods. This helps alot for single target and QOL
-mana cost allows us to not run mana flask anymore and run another dps/defensive flask

Would be great if you can have a belt to be able to craft cooldown recovery speed

Gloves with attack speed would be great

I like your medium jewel, that focuses on having aura effect. Pride is extremely strong on boss fights that lasts upwards of 4 seconds

I would consider an anti curse flask, curses in red tier maps are extremely dangerous


Thanks, I will certainly look into all that, the gear is pretty much a mash-up from previous setup trying to shore up the resistances and stats but certainly something to work on for the foreseeable future.

Have you considered using any of the thread of hope jewels?





Thread of hope would be towards the realm of min-maxing, because its not a readily avaliable item at league start and i cant really find a good location for them

What do you think about Farrul's Fur ? And also Acro/Phase Acro.

Farrul's fur counter-synergizes with inner conviction, we cant get any frenzy charge with inner conviction.

We also have near instant 7 generation of power charges. So end of the day the benefit from farrul's fur is negligible.

I try to minimize the use of uniques in my builds, because more uniques means we have less flexibility in gearing and resist are stricter to achieve

As for acro/phase acro, we dont naturally path near acrobatics, its gonna be a 9 points investment, which is equal to the amount of points we spent getting the life and accuracy/attack speed nodes near templar. It can be a little bit awkward and spreading our passive tree too thin for this. So i am not too willing to path towards this and we use flesh and stone(sand stance) instead for avoidance and some damage mitigation

I haven't played a Poet's Pen build in a long time as they just felt weak in end game. I"m in act 5 with this one and it's super fun and fast. Leveling with Power Siphon until I get my next ascendancy and will swap to Frenzy. Sooo much fun!
How much worse would EK be, do you suppose? Awakened Cascade is OP for sure, but I feel like you SHOULD be rewarded with supreme power for being able to deal with that amount of eye cancer :D

EK fires 10 projectiles, leaves 1 blade per 3 projectile shot, with a 50% penalty for not casting it ourselves. that means 6 projectile per blade. We get 1 blade per cast, as compared to 15 blades per cast on blade fall. Also ek has by far 1 of the worse possible clear too. So its probably gonna make us lose 95% of our dps running ek

Do not use frenzy, it does not interact as well with the pens as barrage does

Do you get one shotted frequently? I just hate dying all the time with this type of builds that rely on evasion or luck and are glass cannon. Just asking :)

We run 180+% life from tree, use flesh and stone and assassin's elusive for survivability. I only see one hits from delirium's balls explosion/ondeath effects or Sirus's rain of stars meteors shotguns

I am also experimenting on removing the life flask and throwing in a basalt flask or granite flask

Loving this build so far, just about to hit red maps with it. Felt infinitely better once I had the life gain on spell hit rings. Just got to try and get that -mana cost of non-channelling skills craft (Elreon running assassin ascendancy and being very elusive) and I think this will feel so smooth to play!
