How Can You Build Path Of Exile Poison

poe-image-23

In Path of Exile, poison is in a state where it needs immense passive investment and poe items investment to work. That means using nearly ALL the poison uniques with the exception of maybe the gloves (dendrobate, coralito’s, despair curse, embalmer’s in some cases).

Recently the volkuur’s lightning poison build has been pretty solid. Poison is in a fine place if you invest heavily enough. I think people are just generally used to the old double dip poison where you could play nearly any spell/attack + poison and it would be ridiculous. it’s still good, but far more limited in its applications and damage potential.

Path of Exile

Poison builds can get really high amounts of damage yes, (got a mid/slightly high-tier investment build planned for 2.5mil shaper DPS) and outshine non poison, but it all depends on the build really. Also, if you have a chaos build and thinking of poison as extra damage, don’t, it’s definitely not worth it.

You can reach solid dps with poison but you are very limited with the gear. Also volkuurs guidance elemental poison is pretty much the only comfortable way to scale it atm, since you can get alot better dps with lower poison duration. But abyss jewels are the only thing that is making volkuur poison builds work atm. Worst part is ramping the dmg up for 5 seconds to start shining on bosses.

Poison is ok. Still a roughly 30% more multi on most builds. Which is not terrible and can match most 6th gem slot performance. Problem is that it takes 2 seconds to reach that deal the same damage as other supports are direct (no dot/time component). So in practice its a bit weaker than most supports VS bosses, and a LOT weaker everywhere else. That’s ignoring it not benefitting from crit multi.

It should be a top gem with effectively an 45-50% multiplier and be affected by crit multi (same as any other support..) to be worth using. Then you’d have these tradeoff of top sustained dps (poison) against burst (any other support). There is a very high damage poison build, using quill rain+ the coucil gloves(lighting can poison) stacking lightning jewels and wrath.

Hopefully the above guide will be helpful to you. If you do not want to lag behind others due to lack of orbs, you can buy poe currency on U4GM.

POE: The Game Creates Different Instances Providing Unique Zones

Path of Exile

Path of Exile, this game is quite technical with all the passives that all work differently with items and skills so it will most likely take quite some season to get used to all the mechanics. The game opens with the player character awakening on the shores of Wraeclast, an island for criminals and ne’er-do-wells from the nearby island nation, Oriath. Skill gems, these are the most important part of Path of Exile, around which every character revolves. Without them, you’d be whacking things with a stick forever.

Path of Exile

Each class has 3 ascendancy classes. In order to access these ascendancies you need to complete the labyrinth challenges that are scattered throughout the game in specific locations. If you miss one of these challenges don’t worry you can always go back to complete them later. Ascendancies and the labyrinth can be complicated and if you want to learn more about the game, you will know more detail at U4GM, find more at here.

While it is true that any class can do anything in Path of Exile, there will still generally be a best class for certain abilities or playstyles. For newer players I usually recommend either Marauder or Witch as the others can be slightly harder to do especially as a first character. In the main world, all players play on the same server but outside of this, the game creates different instances providing unique zones and areas to explore.

In Path of Exile, you have been banished from your homeland to the deeply hostile continent of Wraeclast. Wraeclast is an ancient continent with almost endless intrigues and secrets. In the PvP environment team fights as well as players against players are easy. The game with its randomly generated indoor and outdoor areas ensures long-term replay value. Players are likely to buy path of exile currency.

GraphicsImprovementsHeader

GGG has released a new video of Path of Exile to show some of the graphic changes they are working on. Do not give yourself any illusions because we still do not know the date in which we will see in the game these graphic improvements. The important thing is to know that the developers are still giving him reed and do not give up when it comes to making the MMOARPG look better and better. The goal now is to make it look better and that performance is not adversely affected.

The video is short, but it paints very well. You can see it below:

Finally, remember that the next season of Path of Exile on PC will begin next March 3 (in Europe). The Xbox One version will start its new league soon after, although there are no specific dates. The gamers can buy Path of Exile orbs from the online gaming house to arrange the necessary things to personalize the players and teams.

Best PoE Guide of Damage Scaling

poe-image-6

In Path of Exile, if you have been playing since 3.0 and have always been interested in theorycrafting your own builds and have been getting better at them but one hurdle you have always come across is scaling damage. Even if you use like 20/20 gems and good bases you still have trouble hitting good numbers.

In fact, flat dmg. benefits from high speed, from inc. dmg. from crit mult. Spells benefit much from levels and more multipliers. Ask how to scale a few of those 20/20 gems and more detail can be given. Having enough poe orbs is always an important things for you.

Path of ExileThe thing is, I see that if you start a build yourself, then only very sight modifications can be made. A pair of builds centered around the same weapon. Both focus on the fact that accuracy enables high effective crit rate and that oskram give crit on acc. Both of them are scaled by the point that dual-wield crit swords have a sweet spot around Ranger start with a lot of crit + speed + phys dmg.

In the case of the juggernaut it’s about the synergy in the ascendancy + hinekora’s + Oskram + Ahn’s might + the sweet spot for DW crit swords. Together it gives a cleave that hits fast, crits often, hits 95% of the time, have heavy crits due to all the crit mult and is easy to scale with sword + dual wield nodes. With poe currency and investment the it could use abyssus and easily have 500k phys.

It also depends on if you are going physical, physical and elemental, ele conversion, Engineering Eternity has a video on scaling all kinds of damage, but I’ll be honest I have not watched it. Attacks scale with weapons, spells with skill gem levels. 20/20 is nothing for spells, try 21/20 with empower 4.

Is Empower 4 that big of a damage boost for spells? I always am interested in one because I love spell builds, but I’m constantly daunted by the price tag.

It’s the best increase you get after you stack your 4 supports for most spells: 20+1 ED gives 150k dps, 21+2 ED gives 167k dps, 21+4 ED gives 210k dps, So 150->210 is a 40% damage multiplier, pretty neat, but expensive.

Purely damage-wise the best way to scale is probably gem level and critical strikes. Add in some cast/attack speed and your tooltip will look like one of those “1 mil ez shaper” forum guides you see around.
