Poison Spark Sceptre Crafting Guide


Path of Exile Endgame Poison Spark builds use an Oscillating Sceptre to gain the Elemental Overload keystone without having to allocate it via the Passive Tree or through a Skin of the Lords. Follow the steps below to craft your own like the one shown. Full build guide here.

Step 8

Before We Start

If you aren't familiar with the Crafting Methods below, be sure to check out our resources before you start:

Crafting Process

Step 1
  • Buy an Oscillating Sceptre off of trade. Try to find the lowest item level possible as long as it isn't too much more than an 84+ one.
  • Use Perfect Fossils until the Sceptre is at least 30% quality. This is for the Enchant you will add at the end.
  • Trade Link
Step 2

Use Deafening Essences of Torment until either +1 to Level of All Spell Skill Gems OR +1 to Level of all Lightning Spell Skill Gems. This is a ~1/180 chance depending on the item level of your base.

Step 3
  • You will need an open Prefix and 2 open Suffixes for the next Step. The Sceptre on the left has full Prefixes but since there is space for a Suffix we can craft Cannot Roll Caster Mods and use an Orb of Annulment to remove the (30-39)% increased Fire Damage Prefix since it doesn't have a Caster tag.
  • Recraft the Metamod if it is Annuled.
  • To get rid of a second Suffix craft Prefixes Cannot be Changed and use an Orb of Scouring.
  • If you have full Suffixes or if the third Prefix is a Caster tag the only option is to use an Orb of Annulment.
Step 4
  • Once you have an open Prefix and an 2 open Suffixes, craft Prefixes Cannot be Changed and get an Aisling bench.
  • You need 2 open Suffixes before crafting the Metamod because with only 1 open Suffix Aisling can fill your Suffixes.
Step 5
  • If Aisling adds a Veiled Prefix, unveil (70-79)% increased Lightning Damage, (21-23)% chance to Shock or (60-69)% increased Chaos Damage, Chaos Skills have (13-15)% increased Skill Effect Duration. The Lightning Damage unveil is best. If you unveil one of these Prefixes skip to step 7.
  • If Aisling doesn't offer either of these, make sure you choose a non-Caster Prefix and then craft Cannot Roll Caster Mods before using an Orb of Annulment. Recraft the Metamod if you Annul it. An example is on the left.
  • After the Prefix is Annuled, recraft Prefixes Cannot be Changed and go to Aisling.
Step 6

If Aisling adds a Veiled Suffix, Benchcraft (3-4)% increased Damage per Frenzy/Power/Endurance Charge and unveil either:

  • (18-22)% increased Cast Speed, 15% chance to gain Arcane Surge when you Kill an Enemy
  • +(24-28)% to Chaos Damage over Time Multiplier.

If Jun doesn't give either of these options, craft Prefixes Cannot be Changed and use an Orb of Scouring. Recraft the Metamod and go back to Aisling.

Step 7

After Unveiling, Benchcraft Can Have 3 Crafted Modifiers and 2 of the modifiers below (whichever is missing).

  • (51-60)% increased Lightning Damage, (18-20)% chance to Shock
  • (18-21)% increased Cast Speed
  • +(18-20)% to Chaos Damage over Time Multiplier
Poison Spark

To finish, enchant your Sceptre with:

Quality does not increase Physical Damage
Grants 1% increased Elemental Damage per 2% Quality

This is found in the Harvest bench for 5000 Primal Crystallised Lifeforce. Your Sceptre is now finished!
