and, to make this more of a point, exactly this is the strength of Assassin defenses, casters. So a comparison is difficult, because they work quite different.

That does not, indeed, make the point of "it would be nice if poison Java would be able to do endgame stuff" invalid. But what i don't like is the idea of "every poison build should have the exact same power level" because, following that logic, every melee build should have the exact same power level etc., which is a ridiculously difficult task to accomplish for people who do this for fun in the end.

As QT is a midgame boss, have you tried to use little helpful things like

to increase your elemental defenses? also, overcapping res (by 20%) might help against mythal, and melee range (as op stated) gives you additional protection to apply strong poison from impale.


I already suggested ages ago that elemental aegis should be a passive akin to prismatic cloak instead hiding behind a shield block paywall. But it seems like rocket science for people to understand that.

Assassin has defenses for everything: easy physical resist and tons of movement speed with shadow refuge, prismatic cloak plus the best defense in the world: 60% chance to avoid any dmg all the time. Combine all that with the heals from Zayl's Temptation and sin just shits on jav.

Poison should be deleted from the game, useless build.
