belt and boots just random shit shimmering crafts with nice poison pierce
whatever rings and amulets you can find with skills and/or poison pierce

socket no runes everywhere for easy pierce

max snake bite, gladiators dominance, snake stance, get 1 point in mountain king, 1 point stampede, immortal, and thundergod, put the rest of the points in ancients blood fore more skill lvls in snake bite and glad dominance. Use snake stance at all times, use stampede to clear, snake bite for bosses / poison absorbs


With this build, astro dies in 2 shots, belial in like 3-4, xazax in like 15, kabraxis in like 5, really insane.


So I've got my poison barb up to 113 now, and yes, he can kill with snake bite pretty good. But he is a powder puff.. Dies all the time and too easily. How to get more 'tank' out of the barb while still having good poison power?

You can use some cheap rw which gives huge DR and remember always max your resistance. Snakebite has big duration so dont facetank the boss much, need to kite.

Heya, I just used 30 Eerie shrines (that's 300 uses total) on an ilvl 99 sacred Grim Wand trying to hit Orb of Annihilation oskill. According to this affix page OOA can spawn on Necrowands. I haven't seen it once in 300 rerolls. Am I just being unlucky, is the mod insanely rare or was it removed from the mod pool altogether and the affix page is outdated?

Hi, what's the best place to farm COTW? Vizjun?
And is it actually worth it to specifically farm those ?
Thanks

Vizjun is okay for farming cotw but i prefer fauzt for many reasons.

it's not worth because many good cotws have been removed. Ofc there are still few lefts but really hard to get so this why you should farm fauzt because beside cotw, you still have chances to get good jewelry and good SU too.

How do you get the cherubim spell timer down to zero like I keep seeing? I made a zod-xis shield with 21 to cherubim (max roll i believe) yet the spell timer is still 0.4 seconds. I keep seeing videos of people with a zero spell timer.
