PoEDB provides new things come out each league, as well as unreleased skills or MTX, as all of the information is directly datamined from the game itself. Check network status, view dashboards for network health and activity, power cycle PoE-connected devices, and update firmware remotely. With the Insight Cloud service and the Insight mobile app or the Insight Cloud web portal., you can update firmware on your Insight Managed devices directly from the cloud, from anywhere in the world! The latter would also apply to non-poisons that deal chaos damage over time, e.g. The caustic cloud from caustic arrow or essence drains effect.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • + Good clear
  • + 124% increased skill duration for smoke mine and phase run. Smoke mine lasts 13.3 seconds, phase run lasts around 4.18s with no frenzy charges up. The cooldown on phaserun is 4 seconds meaning we have permanent up time with no frenzy charges, With 6 frenzy charges youll get about 15s of uptime, great for delving into darkness.
  • + smoke mine + phase rune = 80% increased movement speed at all times.
  • + Mirage archer + CA is amazing for indoor maps
  • + Has one of the most amazing feelings of
  • + progression for a character I've played so far, and im just into maps.

Cons

  • -Kind of squishy until you can get some life on gear.
  • -During leveling and mapping you're going to find bosses and some rares tanky, especially hexproof mobs before you get some really high end items.
  • -New Caustic Arrow is kinda ugly so you'll want the mtx

Passive Trees

Other tips

First things first out of the gate if this is a league starter character for you. Find two 1 hand weapons with 3 green sockets for your offhand and equip two of them, Then fill the sockets with spare caustic arrows. Fret not you can level the gems even if you don't currently have the weapons out. This is for a vaaling them for a chance at a level 21 gem, good damage boost later on.

Rares should focus on resists in the earlier acts more than life. Try to find res as high as possible early on and try to find something with equal or better res but with better life as you play.

Look for a 4l green to carry you to maps. CA > pierce > swift affliction > mirage archer/void manipulation

I mean, a 90% buff to stone golems regen is only like 90 flat regen, I dont think thats super crazy or anything.´╗┐

also I think your ziggy math is wrong, when multiplying the base damage with the increased damage I think you multiplied it by 3 and forgot to carry over the base damage of the degen and used only the damage that the increased damage gave you for the rest of the calculation meaning you missed out on 4000 base damage which is a ton. Basically you did (((4000x3)x1.49)x1.59)=28429.2 which is wrong because you dont multiply by 3, you multiply by 4 since you need to carry over a 1 since the 1 represents the base damage like you did for the rest of the calculations (1.49 for 49% it should be 4 for 300% to carry over the base)

I think the number you were looking for in the calculations was(((4000x4)x1.49)x1.59)=37905.6´╗┐

Also I think that controlled destruction would apply to the degen cloud because it says in the wiki that any minion modifiers apply to the caustic cloud and golems count as spells which gives you another 44% more damage multiplier. Your spell echo should also be giving you that 10% less damage multipler and since your degen is actually a huge part of your damage it might actually improve your damage to drop spell echo, not sure really how worth the 90% increased flame golem damage for 8 seconds compaired to 10% less on the degen, it might be better to use spell echo for pack clearing though. Thats something that would need live testing to know how it feels.

Lastly, if you wanted to do a shaper kill with the build then you could swap in chaos golem for the chaos tag to be able to use Void Manipulation for another more multipler and for your 6l you can use Chaos Golem/controlled/void/conc/minion damage/minion life for max degen. I think it would give about a 105k degen if I assume that the chaos golem will have about 55k life (im just guessing the life since you said your flame golems have 40k life and chaos golems are generally much tankier. I might be over estimating it though but I think thats a realistic amount of HP for a chaos golem if I use your flame golem as a base.
