2 Million+ Damage Serpent Strike! BUILD GUIDE | 0.8.3E


This Build Tier Rating is:


  • This build is played as a Beastmaster! Using a polearm and serpent strike with a companion. Run around poison all of your worst foes. Poison has 110% increased duration and you have ton of poison chance and attack speed leading to some HUGE boost of poison damage thanks to so many stacks being applied and the damage boost it gets per stack.

Main Interactions

  • This is build is based on several synergies between skills. Stacking Dex so serpent strike has higher poison chance. Using eterra’s blessing on your scorpion so you both get 150% poison chance boost. Using warcry to give scorpion more poison chance and giving you 60% increased attack speed. Using Frenzy totem to speed everything up and give poison chance. And lastly having aspect of the viper + aspect of the shark giving you tons more poison chance and attack speed.

How to Play this build

  • To play this build all you need to do is run around with your scorpion and her babies and hit enemies just a few times, after a few hits they will take enough damage over the next 8 seconds till they die. As you run away they will continue to take that damage and leech it to you thanks to the bleeding heard (Amulet) and woven flesh (Chest) if your wearing them. For Single target damage peak use warcry+frenzy totem+ eterras blessing on your scorpion

I think Swarmblade is going to be in the second half of druid tree, so it won’t be possible to get beastmaster stuff like aspect of viper, shark stack, summon scorpion, etc. with swarmblade.

Though I still think serpent strike swarmblade could be sick for (phys) hit dmg builds with septic wounds+spear flurry+Eye of the Viper

Correct, Swarmblade is going to be a Druid specific skill.

Yes you will lose out on a few things; but being able to dw means more attack speed which can help.make up for some of the poison loss. You will also be switch forms so you should be able to use wherever to proc warcry and then move into swarmblade.

Either way will have to wait for 8.4 to truely see what’s possible
