Toxic Rain will play an important role in this build and combined with other skills, it will show a great power.

This build cheap to start, cheap to invest in upgrades, scope for further investment. Start levelling for 3C; all yellow maps on ~75C and mandatory uniques are very cheap. Flexible about others.

Quick Jump

 

Pros & Cons

Pros

+  Cheap to start, cheap to invest in upgrades, scope for further investment. Start levelling for 3C; all yellow maps on ~75C.

+  Mandatory uniques are very cheap. Flexible about others.

+  Layered defenses

  • About 6.5-7k EHP at level 86, up to 7.5k+ at 90 geared.
  • 50% attack/projectile avoidance
  • 80%+ faster start of ES recharge. (ES is >2/3 of EHP)
  • ES gain on hit coupled with many many hits per second = old-style insta-Vaal Pact equivalent (expensive: 5ex option). 
  • 20% Stun avoidance or (4ex option) stun immunity.
  • Shoot around corners.
  • Multiple slow mechanics: from Toxic Rain, from Withering Touch, and potentially from Temp Chains on Hit too.
  • RAT totem can distract bosses; not a true taunt, but often the vital couple of seconds you need.

+ Both active and passive recovery mechanics.

+ Inpulsa-style explosions scale damage with trash mob health (and give a satisfying pop-pop sound!).

+ Explosions rapidly delete packs: the safety of upfront damage, with the sustained powered of DoT

+ DoT and poison scaling for bosses/high HP rares.

+ Quill Rain QoL.

Cons

- Mana can be an issue on bosses; consider bringing a hybrid flask.

- Spell dodge only 10-20%, no block, and not much opportunity for raising resistance cap.

- Movement speed poor for a bow build: ~35%. This might be something that could be improved; please post ideas.

- Probably not HC viable.

- Not SSF viable.

 

Skill Tree 

Ascendancy

  • Patient Reaper - for both 50% in DoT, and life and ES recovery on kill - great to get both in a hybrid build.
  • Ghost Dance
  • Escape Artist
  • Prolonged Pain (I assume, but haven't done Uber Lab yet)

Bandits

Kill all the bandits.

Passive Tree

POE Betrayal Trickster Toxic Rain Skill Tree

 

Gems Setup

Primary clear skill 5L on weapon:

Toxic Rain - Vicious Projectiles - Added Chaos Damage - Void Manipulation - Swift Affliction

Possibilities for 6th gem for 6L

Mirage Archer, Increased AoE, Vile Toxins, Faster Attacks, Poison, Unbound Ailments, Empower

Debuff totem

Ranged Attack Totem - Rain of Arrows - Withering Touch - Faster Attacks - Added Chaos - Lesser Poison

For high-tier bossing, perhaps swap Barrage in for Rain of Arrows (not necessary in yellow maps). Rain of Arrows also works very nicely in delves. Alternatively, have Barrage instead of Toxic Rain on a weapon swap.

Minion clear

Herald of Agony - Minion Damage - Damage on Full Life - Vicious Projectiles

Defense / Utilit

Discipline

CWDT - Immortal Call - Increased Duration - Phase Run

Blink Arrow

Summon Ice Golem

Up to you whether to self-cast Phase Run (nice for Delves), or trigger it with CWDT for a "vanish" effect.

 

Gear

Need Gear

Soul Strike Spike-Point Arrow Quiver and Quill Rain has super quality of life. Alternatively, for a slower but harder hitting option, try Lioneye's Glare

Other Gear

  • Body: Dendrobate or Hyrri's Ire or Queen of the Forest or Rare with exceptionally high EV
  • Helmets: Rare, as high ES as you can get.
  • Boots: Sin Trek
  • Amulet, Rings, Belt: All Rare
