Build overview



Boss DPS:



Viper Strike is one of the most powerful (but rarely used) Poison Attacks. It's a Melee Strike Skill which may discourage a lot of players, but its damage, and some unique properties make up for it in raw DPS output. Its Poison Duration is not affected by the default value as is the case with every other type of Poison, but it rather has a separate base duration of four seconds that is affected by Skill Effect Duration modifiers such as Exceptional Performance. Another quirk of Viper Strike is the usage of both weapons at once - there are around five skills that merge the combined damage of both weapons if dual wielding (instead of using them alternately), so we will use it here too to cause exceptionally long-lasting and strong Poisons with just a single strike. Combine it with Temporal Chains cast as Aura so that a single Poison instance can last around 20 or maybe close to 30 seconds dealing millions of DPS each. Attacking 6 or 7 times a second with such a setup will melt any boss, but a hit-and-run tactic may be useful too, especially for Melee builds as these usually struggle the most during fights with, for example, highly mobile Maven or Sirus.

The defensive capabilities of this build can be expanded on too, as it requires no Uniques to function. It's possible to implement some well-performing combinations of Unique items to make up for its Melee nature. You can of course use exclusively rare items with solid stats like Maximum Life, Evasion, and Spell Suppression - that will work. To make full use of a Melee Poison build you need to be tanky to stand your ground and keep attacking. In this case, we've used Loreweave combined with Transcendence Keystone to then gain some additional Physical Damage mitigation from Endurance Charges and Chaos Golem. It's possible to invest in other types of Physical Damage mitigation sources or redirect it to be taken as Elemental or even Chaos Damage. It's easy to cap. The build has very high Evasion, Ghost Dance, some Energy Shield, and capped Spell Suppression Chance. Another, more damage-oriented option is to select The Covenant for a chest piece for a very powerful 7th Support Gem.

1. Gameplay

This is a typical Melee build that thanks to its tankiness allow you to jump in the middle of monster packs and kill them with a few Attacks due to the very high Poison DoT. This is a very durable build because of the aforementioned mechanics utilized, which will allow you to face-tank the majority of Bosses in the game. Thanks to Viper Strike's Poison duration, it's also one of the best Skills in terms of stacking Poison on Bosses. Taking down Sirius, Cortex, and Uber Elder is possible without excessive investments in gear. You are also going to cast Ancestral Protectors for high Attack Speed bonuses and extra Wither charges they can generate with Withering Touch Support. By using Multiple Totems Support you will be able to use up to three Totems to stack Withered quicker. Other than that we recommend using the Withering Step on your left mouse button for the Elusive buff and applying extra Withered stacks to enemies.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • can get extremely tanky thanks to powerful synergies between Items and Passives
  • very high sustainable DPS
  • all content viable
  • has a low clear speed
  • vulnerable to Damage over Time and Physical Hits


3. Leveling tips

Leveling up with Poison/Ranger is easy. You have access to most of the Poison Multiplier and Claw Damage nodes right at the start. With Chaos Attacks and their high, added Chaos Damage, you can easily level up without having to constantly upgrade your Weapons. However, it's not the best idea to level up using Viper Strike - simply because it has limited range and without extra Gems/Items it will only hit a limited number of targets. It's best to level up with Cobra Lash - it's a Projectile/Poison Attack that offers the extra Chain which will help you progress through the campaign at a much faster rate. You can socket your Viper Strike on your Weapon Swap to level up the Gem while you play, and respect later on when you have most of the gear ready. Below you will find the recommended Skill setups for lower levels, as well as, several extremely useful Uniques.

Suggested leveling Gem setups:

Cobra Lash setup
Cobra Lash Cobra Lash - An amazing leveling Chaos/Poison Skill that offers extra Chain, increasing your clear speed by a lot.
Lesser Multiple Projectiles Lesser Multiple Projectiles Support - Increases the number of your Cobra Lash's projectiles.
Lesser Poison Support Chance to Poison Support - Adds extra Chaos Damage to Attacks and increases your Chance to Poison on Hit.
Void Manipulation Support Void Manipulation Support - Increases Chaos Damage dealt with by supported skills.
Vicious Projectiles Support Vicious Projectiles Support - Increases Chaos and Physical Damage, but lowers Attack Speed.
Utility Gems
Herald of Agony Herald of Agony - Herald Skill which increases your Chance to Poison and Poison Damage.
Malevolence Malevolence - The best Aura for this build which greatly increases your Damage over Time.
Whirling Blades Whirling Blades - The recommended Movement Skill for this build that boosts your mobility and doesn't share cooldowns with Withered Step.
Withering Step Withering Step - Grants you the Elusive buff and applies Withered to enemies, increasing Chaos Damage they take.
Despair Despair - The best Curse for this build. Later on, it's applied by Witchfire Brew, but during the campaign, you may want to cast the Curse manually against Bosses for extra damage.

5. Gear Setup

Below you will find the recommended equipment for this build. While technically it's possible to play a standard Viper Strike Pathfinder without any Uniques used, our recommended setup utilizes several specific defensive mechanics, and the following section will focus on it entirely. You can replace any of the Items with random Life/Resistances/Chaos Attack Damage affixes, but if so, it's highly advised not to use Passives like Transcendence or Iron Reflexes which may have a completely opposite result. 

Using this opportunity, we would like to invite you to check our POE Currency market where you can buy cheap Orbs including Exalted Orbs, Chaos Orbs, and more, from other players using real money.
