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.[/quote]

Is there an alternative to the set or a stronger variation?

I really feel this is a build that hits a solid brick wall around 135. I don't know what kind of equipment one would need to farm Scosglen efficiently, and in labs u're generally dead due to no vitality investment.
Even the damage somehow starts lacking. It's A+ grade for Fauzt and Dunc, but that's about it.
Items don't matter nearly as much as umos, and even fully umo stacked you'll have issues.
And it sucks vs bossess.
Overall, t-down.

I've never gotten that far so take this with a boat of salt; However in HC there were 2 chars that reached 145+ with psychic sin, mostly using 2x saggitarius plus some other items. Very few chars have made it even that far in HC this league as far as I can see.
You should go check out the tsw.vn.cz builds and see.

Well, I've checked it out, these aren't Psi storm assassins, they're Mind Ripple/Shuriken builds. They can afford investing in Vitality.

None of this will help much after 135, however. Damage drop from having to go max res is too much for this build I'm afraid.
