Ascendancy Breakdown

Poison Spark Pathfinder Ascendancy choices

The Pathfinder is your Ascendancy choice as it provides Flask Charges, Withers enemies, and Poison Proliferation.

  • When you kill an enemy, Master Toxicist spreads your strongest Poison to nearby enemies boosting your clear speed. Additionally, your Poisons have a chance to deal More damage during Flask effects, and your Flasks are permanent.
  • Nature's Reprisal greatly increases Wither Effect, and turns Phantasmal Spark into another Wither source for when Anomalous Withering Step is on cooldown.
  • Nature's Adrenaline helps ensure you have 100% uptime on all Flasks, which is important as the build uses a Topaz Flask, Taste of Hate and Progenesis to cap Resistances.
  • Master Surgeon allows your Life Flask to "overheal" remaining active even after you reach full Life. This is especially powerful on bosses.
  • Pathfinder's small Ascendancy nodes offer Flask Effect and Duration which makes them particularly impactful.
