[3.15 PoE Build] Toxic Rain Miner Shadow (Trickster)

Intro & build description

If you have played Toxic Rain and want to try a new spin on the skill, consider Toxic Rain miner. Shadow’s starting point is really efficient in terms of mines, with many great nodes nearby. Trickster ascendancy provides a great balance between damage and survivability, making this a well-rounded boss killer build.

Build Pros

  • Melts bosses
  • Reflect is not a problem
  • Can clear delirious maps on a 5-link
  • Cheap to start, yet scales amazingly well with currency invested

Build Cons

  • Mine builds are more intensive on button pushes than average build

Rare Hubris Circlet

Look for rare Hubris Circlet with high life, some extra energy shield and resistances. On your endgame helmet you would also want -% to nearby enemy chaos resistance.

Kintsugi is a great defensive endgame option for the build. Carcass Jack is also a good option.

Until you can get it, use Tabula Rasa.


Rare Gloves with Hunter or Elder influence

On your endgame gloves look for high life, resistances and chaos damage over time multiplier.


Atziri's Step

Rare Penetrating Arrow Quiver with Hunter influence

Our ideal endgame quiver has high life and both, chaos damage over time multiplier and damage over time multiplier mods. If you cannot afford both of those mods, just pick Hunter’s chaos damage over time multiplier since it can roll higher.
