Top 6 Very Useful Shadow Builds in PoE 3.5 Betrayal
1.PoE 3.5 Herald of Viper Assassin Builds
This develops as well negative in the new Betrayal league since when I was crunching inside the numbers, it looked pretty insane. I built the Dancing Duo Scion back in Delve. However, the character moved to common and nevertheless has all of the gear on her. Producing the guide shouldn't also be difficult in that regard. Anyways, this build is about Herald of Agony getting ran on a Shadow/Assassin. Be prepared to melt Everything.
This create also makes use of the ability Viper Strike to have us our poison. Viper Strike inherently comes with a 60% possibility to poison mod which tends to make poisoning even much easier for us. Not just that, but the Assassin's ascendancy notable Noxious Strike also grants us 40% opportunity to poison. So together with the combination on the two, we've 100% possibility to poison which implies every single time we attack, we are assured to poison. Also, don't neglect that Herald of Agony offers us 20% to poison also. We proficiently sit at 120% without having needing to spec on the tree or grab gems to raise our poison opportunity. This can be one of the few causes why I wanted to make use of an Assassin for this creation. Assassin also just offers us reflect immunity if we crit, but honestly, we deal so small harm exactly where you by no means see the damage come back to bite us. The genuine damage is coming in the Agony Crawler.
This develops can be accomplished on a super tiny price range. The only real expected products are Ornament in the East, Victario's Charity along with the Coming Calamity. Each and every item is actually chaos or significantly less. All other gear can just be rare things and any other selection of uniques.
Pros & Cons:
+ Solid clear speed (Not insane like Sonic on steroids, but really respectable for a minion build)
+ Life Gain on Hit+Fortify for instant leech and survivability
+ 2 million+ Agony Crawler DPS
+ Budget friendly/Super cheap to build (a lot of opportunities to get better gear and min-maxing / required items cost less than a total of 5 chaos)
+ 120% chance to poison and 100% hit chance ensuring you will never miss and are always inflicting poison to generate Virulence stacks
+ Can do all content in the game
+ Can handle all map mods (some mods might be slightly annoying, but still completely possible / we still dish out over a million damage even against Hexproof enemies)
+ Dual curse setup (additional curse is granted through the tree and not from gear or items which saves you from finding it on gear which can get expensive)
+ Face-tank a majority of content (with some small dodge mechanics for certain bosses and telegraphed attacks)
+ 6k+ life with grabbing life on gear and following the skill tree
- NOT a league starter (if you do league start with it, be prepared to respect your tree a LOT)
- Need to be close to enemies to apply poison with Viper Strike
- Need to buy/trade a large amount of Orb of Regrets to respect the build (the skill tree is not optimized to level with from level 1 / the build is mostly on the left side of the skill tree, meaning it is not optimal to level up with until you actually get Herald of Agony running and have enough skill points to grab the nodes on the left side of the tree)
- Need to level the build to at least level 53 (To use The Coming Calamity and when it might be "ok" to respect the build) to start the build at a minimum (I usually start my builds at level 70 or at the minimal level where I meet all of the gear levels and attribute requirements / starting the build from level 1 with the tree is extremely inefficient).
The current skill gem link setups that I use. You'll find some links that you can modify to your liking, but that is what I at present use, and it works great for me. Do note that a lot of your mana is going to be reserved because of our Herald of Agony setup (but only 45% here because of the Coming Calamity) and also due to the Generosity setup, we use for our Agony Crawler. Now, with this setup, we proficiently reserve 90%+ of our mana. We do get some reduced mana reservation on our tree at the same time, so that helps. Usually do not worry about running out of mana although. Even with that low of mana, we are able to sustain our mana even when spamming Whirling Blades and Viper Strike.
Six Hyperlink - Most important Minion Damage - Herald of Agony Setup
Herald of Agony > Pierce > Physical to Lightning > Minion Damage > Harm on Complete Life Help > Elemental Harm with Attacks Assistance
3 Hyperlink - Movement -Movement/Utility Setup
Flame Dash > Convocation > More quickly Casting Assistance
Flame Dash is effortlessly one of the ideal movement abilities within the game. Although this is not our major supply of movement, it can be actually important to be able to scale across bridges, gaps as well as the like. Our main movement talent is really Whirling Blades, but certainly, Whirling Blades cannot go more than the gaps that I talked about. Pairing Flame Dash to have us more than ledges in addition to Whirling Blades gets us about the map efficiently.
3 Hyperlink - CWDT/Utility - Cast when Damaged Taken/Utility Setup
Cast when Harm Taken Support (level 2) > Immortal Call (level four) > Frost Bomb (level 11)
The common CWDT setup but with Frost Bomb attached. Immortal Contact is there to grant us some physical invisibility which can save us in rapid bursts damage. It gives us sufficient time to immediate leech our life back up if needed. Frost Bomb is linked in conjunction with the setup so it might reduce the cold resistance with the enemies that get hit by Frost Bomb. Frost Bomb provides -25% cold resistance and reduces the all-around life and power shield regeneration by 75%. This is some excellent utility for survival and netting far more DPS for our Agony Crawler.
4 Hyperlink - Curse/Main Movement - Curse on Hit/Movement Setup
The curse on Hit Assistance > Conductivity > Elemental Weakness > Whirling Blades
That is your dual curse setup linked for your main movement skill, Whirling Blades. The explanation why we usually do not socket this into our Ornament in the East to make use of the more rapidly attacks mod is for the reason that we can squeeze in an added curse by socketing this setup into a 4 socket item. Any time you Whirling Blades into a mob or boss, you're going to be cursing them with Conductivity and Elemental Weakness. Elemental Weakness is just there to drop all of their elemental resistances by over -40% to ensure that means a lot more DPS for our Agony Crawler.
3 Hyperlink - Aura-Aura Setup
Generosity Help > Hatred > Spirit Supplyinggenuinely just for the Agony Crawler. Generosity Help increases the effectiveness of our Hatred for our Agony Crawler, nevertheless it doesn't influence us because of the trade-off. This is absolutely fine because it truly is our Agony Crawler that we desire to get stronger. This setup will consume up a ton of your mana reservation, but I assure you the harm boost is Large.
4 Hyperlink - Viper Strike/Utility - Poison Setup/Utility Setup #2
Viper Strike > Multistrike Support > Fortify > Melee Splash Support/Life Obtain on Hit Support
Kill all of them! We need as many extra skill points as we can get.

2. PoE 3.5 Storm Brand Trickster Builds
Hello all. This guide so please do not hesitate to post or PM me in a game if you feel that something is missing or is unclear. On top of that I am not a native English speaker, so please attempt to tolerate achievable spelling blunders right here and there. Constructive criticism is generally welcome. Also, this guide is a performance in progress - I'll be adding additional price range choices and leveling ideas. I will also be adding videos as quickly as I can record them.
Pros & Cons:
+ Fast, efficient map clear. With high enough monster density, you can blow several screens in the single click
+ Very defensive play style possible. As brand recall is instant, you can basically concentrate on manually dodging everything while still maintaining solid damage output
+ Good defenses. On maps, you will usually have 3 endurance charges, 6k+ EHP and almost instant life recovery.
+ Huge cast speed bonuses from Trickster ascendancy will make lightning warp feel really good - almost similar as old Diablo II teleport
+ Good single target. While requiring some investment, solid damage output to single target combined with defensive play style makes the build very competent at running guardians, shaper and similar bosses deathless.
- Wander build without movement speed. This practically means that your movement is limited to flame dash or lightning warp.
- Life regen is not instant, so it is still possible to die to huge single hits. For example, some of the T15 betrayal encounters can Instagib you if you stay in place and don't dodge the slams
- Leveling can be painful due to lacking single target before you get to the "Runebinder" node.
- Expensive. I will be adding budget options (based on dual wielding shimmers) but means different and less efficient tree pathing due to a high amount of required life regen
- Cannot do elemental reflects maps
Mapping setup - you can use this up to T15 bosses, no need to switch gems before Shaper, Guardian or Elder
Storm Brand - Controlled destruction - Lightning Penetration - Power Charge on Critical - Added Lightning Damage - Faster Casting
Single Target Setup
Storm Brand - Controlled destruction - Lightning Penetration - Power Charge on Critical - Elemental Focus - Concentrated Effect
Brand Recall Setup
Brand Recall - Empower - Arcane Surge
Lightning Warp Setup
Lightning Warp - Less Duration - Faster Casting - Swift affliction
Herald Of Thunder Setup
Herald Of Thunder - Curse On Hit - Warlord's Mark - Onslaught
Summon Stone Golem - Vaal Righteous Fire
T15 Shaped Belfry
