How the heck you had 17k life ? And how you got 55k damage tooltip ? I have 8k energy and it's not even close. Were there any nerfs to this build that i'm not realising, cause i've searched in all patchnotes and could'nt find anything related to psionic assassin neither their items (sadly the 1.7 patch was removed from the site history) ? I know we are in 2.0 now but the skill tree hasn't change that much to justify a difference betwen 35k damage and 8.5k life.

There's a 2.0 guide for Psi assassin. It plays very well up to 120, which is as far as I got so far..

Mine is at lv 141 but still, 26k dmg with almost good endgame gears and regular mo, I recommend making a rw zol claw, its +75% all attributes (79% nrg along with two +2% nrg jewels), unfortunately in scosglan its suck to against the red tree, if you want to farm in scos with this build, I recommend just ignore the red trees.

Mind ripple psi sin is very good for me but it has sensational end game gear; bis in most slots + some umos and a couple of relics.

14k life, 50k+ damage.

Idk man, I think this build cant get well to end game, requires alot of umo and relics to get job done, mine is 11k hp and 26k dmg without umo and good relic as you shown below cause its expensive af, and the weakness is no su ssu do really support this build, still stick with the set build with rw dawn, elementals resist is suck for this build, adding ele resist gems to socket reduce so much dmg. I think as a sff player this build cant get 28k + dmg without tg investing. Well hope they will give a buff for this next patch. This probably the most interesting build in my opinion.

I agree, I don't think this build is great for ssf. Using the set can be really powerful for quite a while though. I think it really shines with UMOs and a couple of relics though, which you'll need to acquire through trading. I got my sin to around 35k damage and 11.5k hp in the end. It could be pushed further, but that would require a big tg investment.
